    Just can't stand wasting energy even it is minute particles of energy, so small in fact that it's measure in electrons used?   Fret not, there are many other greenies out there just like you.  Buffalo has your back.  The Buffalo 4 port hub features individual kill switches on each of the 4 USB ports giving you the ultimate in eco-friendly design.  Why let these empty holes sip on power when not in use?  Stop their never ending appetite and reclaim your electric bill with pride.  Hit u...
  • Tired of outlet babysitting? Try the Kinesis K3

    The least favorite time for any gadget aficianado, particularly the mobile gadget aficianado is that of recharge time.  Not only are we at times without gadgets (the ones that aren't operable while charging), we are also stuck, chained to a wall limiting our movement and mobile freedom.  Extra batteries can help extend those wall free moments in life and for many are a good solution.  But what if you're going to be away from walls and outlets for an extended period of time?  Mobile charg...
  • Get dirty, save a critter

    Motocross is a sport that has been one the sports that I have grown to appreciate more over the last few years as I have met several people who race in it as well as been to several events. The sport itself hasn't changed much in the decades that it has been around as it is still a dirt track with gas powered bikes running laps around it. However, since the green wave started a few years ago, no area of life or the market has been left untouched by some sort of green technology. While dirt ...
  • Samsung introduces the Crest Solar E1107

    Now before you get all excited and assume that Samsung has come out with some earth shattering, mountain moving solar powered solar powered smartphone, I need to burst your digital bubble and come clean about the fact it isn't very "smart". But, what it lacks in higher end features it makes up for in it's ability to trot around the globe uninhibited by such ancient nuisances like power outlets and cords. Samsung claims that for every hour of solar juice you borrow, you can expect 5-10 minute...
  • Keep a fish, save the planet - Floating Garden Freshwater Aquarium [Concept]
    by Mike
    Posted June 11th, 2009 at 7:48 am
    Why oh why can't these concepts be more real right now and not ten years into the future.  Granted, this concept has a bit more of a chance than some of the crazier things we've covered here.  The concept in question is the Floating Garden Freshwater Aquarium.  What is really unique and sets this aquarium apart from all other aquariums is the fact that it doesn't use any type of artificial filtration system meaning less plastics and other chemical compounds get released into the ground wh...
  • Sharp releases remote controlled LED light bulbs - Dear mother nature smiles.

    The next time you're sitting in your house, thinking of ways to may it more futuristic, you may want to take a look at one of the most commonly used though forgotten features of your home: lightbulbs.  The still commonly used incandescent light bulb is nearing the end of it's life as CFL's and LED's encroach upon the land that incandescent bulbs once reigned supreme.  Sharp is putting their own twist on lightbulbs with the DL-L60AV.  This alphabet soup of earth saving goodness not only of...
  • Ride your lawn while loving the planet: Husqvarna Panthera Leo [Green Tech]
    by Mike
    Posted June 10th, 2009 at 9:42 am
    While the futuristic contraption above (the Husqvarna Panthera Leo) is as of writing still a concept, the real thing isn't very far off - 4-5 years says the designers, Husqvarna. The contraption, if you haven't already figured out, is a battery operated riding mower. While push mowers that are powered by electrons are becoming more common, the riding variant is still being pursued. The heavier weight, longer mow times, and overall heavier duty use calls for greater batteries and battery tec...
  • California abandoning paper based books, getting e-frindly
    by Mike
    Posted June 10th, 2009 at 6:02 am
    When you really stop and think about a school system and how much money they spend and where (psh...who doesn't think about that kind of stuff...), you may often find youself dumb founded on how costly and wasteful buying text books are. The markup is ridiculous and they only last a couple years at best. It is money wasted that can never be recovered. California is finally coming to there senses, mildly influenced by a god awful budget deficit to make the move to online text books. What ar...
  • Save a bear cub - go cardboard
    by Mike
    Posted June 9th, 2009 at 12:27 pm
    While being a gadget nerd is certainly nothing to be ashamed of, the waste that we can leave behind is at times downright shameful. What I mean is, gadgets have an extremely short lifespan. If you get 12-18 months out of a gadget, consider yourself lucky (and at the end of those 18 months your gadget old). But what if gadgets were constructed of far more grass loving, Bambi petting, have dinner with a rabbit materials? What material you ask? Cardboard. While cutting down endless amount...
  • Save a critter while navigating the world from the comfort of your chair
    by Mike
    Posted June 8th, 2009 at 8:23 am
    Global warming and CO2 emissions while still hot topics in politics today aren't quite as big as they were just a few short years ago, (some would care to debate that). Often we think of global warming factors such as smog belching behemoths, cars & trucks, and other forms of carbon burning machinery. Very seldom do we think of our computers as contributers to green house gases. While the computer itself doesn't directly give off any CO2, the power plant that is running to create the energy...
  • Solar powered lunch box eats sun so you can eat warm food
    by Mike
    Posted June 8th, 2009 at 6:07 am
    Sitting at lunch and eating a cold meal that was destined to be warm/hot is something that isn't exactly highlighted by words such as "super", "tasty", and "yummy". Keep yourself or little Johnny's tummies happy and content with the solar powered lunch box. Why eat cold food or even have to hunt for a microwave when you can actively keep your own food warm. As the name implies, the solar powered lunch box uses solar energy to keep the contents inside said box warm and toasty for the hungry ...
  • The nPower Peg: Create electricity where ever, whenever
    by Mike
    Posted June 3rd, 2009 at 12:23 pm
    As gadgets get more and more complex, the pressures and drain on the batteries becomes increasingly higher. Unfortunately, battery technology has not progressed as far or as fast as other areas of the electronic world, meaning we often bump into our batteries' limits far too often. While running out of juice on your mp3 player can be a real drag, running lower on flash light power when lost in a woods can be a more serious problem. Thankfully, a new kinetic battery charger desgined by Tremo...
