So your on the beach on a sunny day, and your umbrella is actually powering your stereo. Cool right! The Sunbrella provides a source of energy to power small appliances using Photovoltaics that produce a peak output of 282 watts.(A standard CD/cassette player takes 30 watts) Just plug your small appliance in to the Umbrella's plug and your in business. It also comes with a built in fan for additional cooling on hotter days. Other features include detachable parts for easy flat storage, and a drill anchor for an easier set up.

Solar-Powered-Bus-Shelters.JPG

These environmentally friendly i-SHELTERs were created by Carmanah, a Canadian company. Whenever you walk into one of these bus shelters, solar-powered LED lights will greet your arrival. Edinburgh, one of more recent cities to adopt such bus shelters was preceded with installations in Canada, Chicago, and Seattle. London will soon see at least 1,200 of these solar-powered bus stops.

Solar-powered Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

Solar-powered-Autonomous-Underwater-Vehicle.jpg

This new solar-powered underwater vehicle was designed to provide better observation and monitoring of complex aquatic systems in testing dissolved oxygen levels for example, as well as applications to environmental management and security and defense programs. How you ask? Using integrated sensor microsystems, pervasive computing, wireless communications, and sensor mobility with robotics, these SUAVs will network with one another in real time to assess a water body as a whole. Even the U.S. Navy has paid attention and will evaluate their use for coastal surveillance applications. The SAUV weighs 370 pounds, moves slowly at 2 miles per hour, but can dive to depths up to 500 meters. New pro-earth technology! Great!

Check out this journal of Field tests of two SAUVs ,SAUV II and REMUS, in Lake George, NY at the Autonomous Undersea Systems Institute.
