Shelves For Life: With You In Life And In Death


Okay, so here’s the idea. Get a strong emotional relationship and bond going between yourself and your possessions. And then have your furniture follow you to the grave. Weird as it is, the idea wants people to have shelves that they know will one day be their coffin. The structure can be used as shelves during life, and when the time comes, it can be arranged to create a coffin. Spooky. I, for one, won’t be comfortable seeing a coffin in front of me every single day.

A Little Turbine On Your Tap To Generate Electricity


Energy conservation gets an entirely new meaning with this concept; you get to produce electricity everytime you use water. The Mini Hydro Turbine concept by Jin Woo Han has a small generator, that draws on the kinetic energy of flowing water to produce electricity. This should ideally be able to power small gadgets like electric shaver or electric toothbrush, but for it to be a commercial success, I guess the machine would require very high levels of efficiency.
