I love new technology and am always scouring the net for new ideas. I recently came across this one which I think is just absolutely awesome. They are calling it the “Sunrise thermal airship” & (unfortunately) it is still only an idea. I can’t wait for this one to go commercial, I know I would be likely to do anything to get my hands on one.

There’s nothing quite like an excellent example. The village of Wildpoldsried, in Germany, is just that; a great eco-example that all communities should be looking into. This village produces 321% EXTRA energy and makes money by selling it back to the national grid.
I am fascinated by the huge amount of stone circle ruins that have been found all around the world. Whenever I find them on Google earth, I take a picture. So I thought I would put those pictures into an album here. I will keep adding to this album, so keep checking back here.
This is just awesome. How to get everyone working on one problem. Firstly he explains those annoying CAPTCHA & reCAPTCHA images we have all had to fill in. Now that I know what is going on, I will fill them in with a new found joy. And then he goes on to explain how he is going to translate the internet, the WHOLE internet. Well, not him personally, silly! He has a great team (clearly) & they have built a very clever system, founded on very solid fair trade principles. This is truly a case of ‘teachnology’ combined with great human spirit. Louis van Ahn and his team have my respect. Love it!

This is mindblowing, watch how researchers use 2 square meters of sunlight (as much as 3 people sunbathing would gather), focus it and MELT ROCKS! That’s right, melt rocks. Now if we can do this, why can’t we use this tech to generate power and much, much more.
Jem Stansfield travels to the Solar Furnace Research Facility in Southern France. He witnesses the incredible power generated by highly concentrated sunlight.
