HEXA seeks out the suns when needed, retreats to the shade when it's had enough, and even performs a little dance to let you know it needs water. The post HEXA the six-legged robot plant chases the sun to look after its succulent appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Concrete production is one of the largest sources of carbon dioxide emissions in the world, after transportation and energy. To make the ubiquitous building material more environmentally friendly, the industry has been adding by-products from coal-fired power plants, but doing so had its own problems. Now, researchers at Rice University have developed a new composite binder that can almost
Approximately 39 percent of all water drawn from US rivers, lakes and reservoirs is used to cool electric power plants. Much of that water, in turn, ends up going out those plants' cooling towers in the form of steam. A new system created at MIT, however, could convert that steam into clean drinking water...

Reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is one of the most pressing concerns facing the world today. Cutting back the amount of CO2 that's newly pumped into the air is vital, but it might not be enough – we need to suck out some that's already up there. Direct air capture (DAC) systems have been discussed as a possibility for decades but it was, until recently, deemed too expensive to be

If ships' hulls are covered in barnacles and other marine organisms, then those ships have to work harder, burn more fuel, and create more CO2 emissions in order to move through the water. While there are anti-biofouling paints that kill such organisms, they can also harm other marine life. That's why scientists from Australia's University of Sydney Nano Institute have created a plant-inspire is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
