There’s more to going green than cutting back on your fuel consumption. You also have to consider the sustainability of the manufacturing process and what you do with the product after it’s reached the end of its life cycle. And that’s where the Phoenix Concept Car comes into the picture.more →
Our computers in their simplest form are just a series of tiny electronic circuits containing transistors that switch on and off in certain patterns to execute the functions that we need. At their conception computers were created using only one core processor; this is what reads and performs instructions. Now a computer that has at least two processors is commonplace, and with higher end systems having up to 16 cores.more →
Even if your local power provider uses a greener technology like hydro power, it’s still not completely green. I’m not saying that the Solar Vox is completely green either, but it could help you be a little nicer to mother earth.more →
This comes by way of the Eco Product 2010 event where Casio is showing off its popular G-Shock and Oceanus series watches. More specifically, they’re offering an “exploded view” of a G-Shock watch, showing each of the individual components and how they work with one another.more →
We already know about the Chevy Volt and how you can drive around town without ever visiting a gas station. We also know about the Nissan Leaf and how you can do the same, but what about work vehicles? Apparently, Nissan is planning a pure-electric commercial van, and it’ll be ready for customers by 2013.more →
The newly revealed Sony Ericsson Cedar cell phone doesn’t look like much, but this affordable handset is actually quite elegant in its presentation. It’s not a smartphone, but appears to offer integrated Facebook and Twitter access. That’s a good start. You may also notice beyond the elegant design, that the Cedar makes uses of recycled plastics, offers a lower power charger, comes with an e-manual, and is wrapped up in compact packaging.more →
There’s more to creating an environmentally-friendly vehicle than just plopping in an electric motor or a hybrid powertrain of some kind. Ford agrees and that’s why the American carmaker is showing off its Ford START concept vehicle at the Beijing International Auto Show.
You see, the Ford START Concept isn’t a hybrid. It isn’t an electric. Instead, it makes use of a forthcoming 1.0L EcoBoost three-cylinder gas engine with a CO2 rating of under 100 g/km. It’s not zero emissions either, but that’s still very good considering it’s still a three-banger.more →
According to the kind folks at Lenovo, their latest set of laptops are the “greenest on the market” while maintaining the high level of performance that users expect from a Lenovo. Here are the newLenovo ThinkPad L Series laptops.
Consisting of the ThinkPad L412 and ThinkPad L512, the new L Series integrates the highest amounts of post consumer recycled content (up to 30 percent) in a commercially-available notebook today. The laptops are also shipped in nearly 100 percent recycled packaging.more →
Just because you want to have the latest in gadgetry doesn’t mean that Mother Nature has to take a backseat. Sprint and Samsung are both dedicated to green leadership. In celebration of Earth Day, the two firms are announcing the Samsung Restore cell phone.
This is the second “green” device resulting in this environmentally-friendly partnership. Available this summer for $49.99 with a two-year contract and $50 mail-in rebate, the Samsung Restore follows up on the Samsung Reclaim, a device made from 80 percent recyclable materials.more →
Remember years ago when we first heard about Project Ginger and then it was revealed to us as the Segway? It was supposed to revolutionize the way that we got around town, but it hasn’t exactly lived up to these high hopes. We still want a proper vehicle of some kind for longer trips and it seems that Nissan is capitalizing on this emerging niche.
There are other electric cars and there are fuel-efficient scooters, but none of them are quite like the Nissan Land Glider. It has four wheels, but it leans into corners like a bike or a scooter.more →
There’s this whole Fiat-Chrysler relationship that presented an opportunity to bring Fiat vehicles to the roads of America, well, as it turns out one of those first vehicles won’t need a droplet of Texas Tea to make its way around the boardwalk. That’s because theFiat 500EV is an electric car.
It’s not like the Fiat 500 is a brand new car, per se, since the platform has spawned more than its fair share of micro vehicles over the years, but this is an electric powertrain that speaks to the future of Chrysler. Quite different from the Chevy Volt though!more →
Having grown up in Vancouver, I’ve already been accustomed to the majority of the city buses running on electricity. They tether themselves to the overhead lines and move the commuters around town. Over in Victoria, they’re testing something so much better. They’ve got the “most technologically advanced bus on the planet.”
Instead of relying on those overhead lines, the new hybrid-powered bus gets its juice from a fuel cell.more →
Have you ever been to one of those science exhibits where you ride a stationary bike, generating enough electricity to light up a light bulb? It’s obvious that we can harness the energy that you generate on a bike, so why not do the same when you’re pedalling along on a real bicycle? Well, you […]more →
Its form factor may be somewhat reminiscent of the Palm Pre or the Samsung Propel, but the all-new Samsung Reclaim from Sprint is arriving with a slightly different mission. It wants to save the planet, one cell phone at a time. If you want to go green, both figuratively and literally, the Reclaim could be […]more →
I’ve stated in the past that my greatest environmental sin is that I probably consume a fair bit of electricity. I like my gadgets and I love my technology. Between my cell phone, MP3 player, television, Xbox, and countless other items, I can’t live without power. Sanyo understands this addiction and is offering a way […]more →
