Concept: Copper Phone Uses Heat for Power

Nokia E-Cu

The Nokia E-Cu by  Patrick Hyland is a mobile phone charged by sources of heat therefore eradicating the need for a charger. The phone has a thermo-generator integrated inside, which converts heat energy into electric potential energy. It is surrounded by copper with engraved heat sinks in a dry earth pattern which represents the effect of heat on the natural environment. The phone can be charged by placing it on any source of heat e.g. a radiator, even inside a pocket.

Conceptual Tree Planting Robot

tree planting robot

From Yanko Design and designer Anna-Karin Bergkvist comes this concept of a tree planting robot. The eco-friendly four legged machine can plant trees with the help of its long planting arm and the planting head. The legs reduce the pressure applied on the floor of the forest, enabling the robot to be smaller and move through rough terrain. By using hot steam to destroy competing vegetation (choking vines that kill trees, for example), it poses no threat to the animals that afterward come upon planting spots.
