Timeless GardenAn interesting concept “The Timeless Garden” designed by Francesco Castiglione Morelli & Tommaso Ceschi relies on the chemical reaction between mud and metal to power its built in digital clock. I for one have wanted to see more products like this come to light. As well thought out engineering and design should be used in ways to be less reliant on other sources of grid based power. Not all products of coarse will be able to be self sufficient, but we need to strive toward reaching that goal. Do you remember that experiment in science class of building a battery from potatoes? Well this concept is really not that much different. This I believe is still in the conceptual stages because there is no indication whether or not this product is in production. Not only is this device self powering, it also helps absorb CO2 from the air to create oxygen (like all plants do).

Mission One EV Sports Bike Mission Motors is the designer of this Mission One EV Sports Bike. With a top speed of 150mph and a range of the same, this all electric motorcycle has set the bar. The first bikes are supposed to come to market in 2010 and will have a limited production of 50 with a price tag of $68,995. The founders of San Francisco based Mission MotorsĀ  Forrest North, Edward West , and Mason Cabot have assembled a cast of team members from the likes of Tesla Motors, Ducati and Google to help make this production vehicle a reality. I only hope projects like this can get funding and some government help along the way in either tax breaks or stimulus. This is the kind of Green Technology growth our nation needs to help further our nation from oil dependency.
