Simple things that we take for granted, like flipping a switch and having light suddenly appear, aren't so simple in developing countries. This fantastic gravity powered light may change that, if their Indiegogo project is successful. -- GravityLight is a revolutionary new approach to storing energy and creating illumination. It takes only 3 seconds to lift the weight which powers GravityLight, creating 30 minutes of light on its descent. For FREE.
Cool Gadget of the Week: GravityLight™ is a device that generates light from gravity.
Gravity Light. This is amazing. Gravity powered light for places without electricity. To be produced for villagers in Africa and India as a replacement for kerosene lighting.

Sign Language Ring. Set of rings and a bracelet that detects sign language motions and translates them to voice. It also translates voice to text. Winner Red Dot Design Award

Cool doesn't begin to describe this: Sign Language translation ring [Design Concept]
Rings and Bracelet Translate Sign Language The conceptual device is actually a bracelet and ring combo. The bracelet comes with detachable rings that, when worn, detect the signing motions that are made by the wearer. It then “translates” the signs audibly via the bracelet, which has an embedded speaker. The bracelet can also translate voice to text, which is displayed on the built-in screen.
The Sign Language Ring is a set of rings to be worn on each finger by the person using sign language. An accompanying bracelet senses the signs being made and translates them into spoken words, which are played through the bracelet’s embedded speaker. When the hearing person speaks, their words are translated into text on the bracelet’s screen. The hearing impaired person then gets to understand the other side of the conversation even if they can’t read lips.

Love this. Lamps made using a tank of bio luminescent algae which also filters out CO2 in the air. Could massively reduce pollution in cities. Eventually they may be able to sustain themselves with batteries. Is there anything algae can't make better? Could be a prototype street lamp that would absorb CO2 carbon emissions while lighting your way !

The real Green Lantern: street lamps powered by algae—French biochemist Pierre Calleja has been developing the algae powered lamp. The lamps are tanks filled with water and algae that convert sunlight and carbon dioxide in the air during the daytime; the energy generated is stored in batteries that come with the tank. At night, the batteries power the lights creating a bright green glow. They absorb 150-200 times more CO2 than a tree!

NEW INVENTION MAKES OCEAN WATER DRINKABLE -- "Chemists with the University of Texas and the University of Marburg have devised a method of using a small electrical field that will remove the salt from seawater. Requires little more than a store-bought battery. Water for drinking and crop irrigation is one of the most basic requirements for maintaining and improving human health.” http://www.occupycorporatism.com/new-invention-makes-ocean-water-drinkable/#sthash.nIEc2501.dpuf

Researchers have developed a new method for the desalination of water that runs on a store-bought battery and uses a small electrical field to remove salts. The technique is called electrochemically mediated seawater desalination and it eliminates the need for costly membranes. Although it still needs to be refined, the prototype [pictured] could be used in the near future to provide fresh water on a massive scale.

Interesting Engineering Make Forests, Not War -- Innovative design of "Seed Bombs"
seedbomb... very cool idea, iffy name...
The tree bombs have funnel shaped tin bottoms filled with fertilizer, and will plant themselves when they hit the ground. As the trees take root, the tin disintegrates. The idea is to plant these trees in deforested and otherwise hard to reach areas. As many as 1 billion trees could be planted in a year—that is a bunch of C02 eaters on the ground. Successful tests have been performed by one of these planes in several remote places, including Scotland and China.
an LED lantern that runs on just water and salt; no batteries required. The light source provides eight hours of electricity per dose of saline water

Generate Electricity From Salt Water Using This LED Lantern - Japan based Green House has developed a LED lantern that runs purely on salt water. There is no battery inside. [Click on Image Or Source on Top to See Full News]
LED Lantern Powered by Salty Water... Scientists will immediately understand how this LED lantern runs on a bit of salt water. But it's not that complicated: It works like a battery. Inside the lantern there is a bag full of carefully measured water and salt, and submerged in that is a magnesium rod (with a negative charge) on one side, and a carbon rod (positive charge) on the other. Boom! You've got yourself an electrolyte. It runs for eight hours before changing the salt water.
No-battery lantern uses water and salt for light, from a Japanese company called Greenhouse.
