The Wind Cube is a modular green energy power system that has been designed by Chen Liao Hsun for urban household use. “The concept,”he says, “is to use three-dimensional wind fields to make up for the insufficiency of two-dimensional ones.” Each individual unit can produce around 100 W of electricity which translates into an estimated 21.6 KWh a month. For an average family of 4 members, a total of 15 Wind Cube units would be enough to take them off the grid.
This concept provides [...]
Game maker SEGA has come up with a very interesting concept video game. The game is called Outrun and it is basically a prototype video-game car that has been designed by artist-scientist Garnet Hertz. It combines a car shaped arcade cabinet with an electric golf cart and some custom software. It all comes together in a video game system that you can actually drive! Creator Garnet Hertz had this to say:

Computer games have come a long way since the days of Pacman and Mario. In today’s day, all the cool 3D graphics that you see are made up of polygons.

Game developers have been trying very hard for a number of years to increase the polygon count in the games they make. However, computers face a problem when it comes to increased polygon counts. The higher the number of polygons, the greater processing power it takes to render all those polygons. Its because of [...]
