Another closet idea by John Zulaikha
1-16 Nov 2005
The drought affecting lifestyle change is on the march. The solution is water and Sydney Water is under enormous pressure to deliver. The solution is a desalination plant at Kurnell. My idea is to make it portable as on a boat so it becomes a more valuable resource later. Any green benefits are a plus.
As Climate Change moves across the planet, the rain misses traditional catchment targets. The job requires a portable desalination plant. Suggesting a portable desalination plant requires a plan.
The Desal Watercraft Carrier is, but is not limited to, a large scale 3 or more tiered portable floating collector of wind wave tide and solar energies with battery and reverse osmosis desalinationplant on-board. Gathering power, storing power and making water for cities.
One day it might be able to roam the seas searching for the best possible weather conditions gathering the full potential, but typically it would be moored off the coast exchanging eco energy for fresh water, re-charging, and pumping fresh water back to the coast through a pipe.
Pedal-electric hybrid concept boat.
Designed by Manuel Schneider, “1Liaison” is a paddleboat that offers you much more than high levels of enjoyment. The paddleboat comes with an onboard battery for high speed boating. The propeller-driven boat can be powered by pedals just like a normal boat, but here the pedals are connected to a dynamo that recharges the battery.
Eco-friendly concept car powered by electric axle motors.
One thing we don’t often see in concept cars is the focus on driver and passenger safety. However, designer Manuel Schneider and his team has designed a car that incorporates features such as anti-collision and collision-avoidance systems that promise that in the future drivers will be feel much safer than today.
The French TGV, the world’s fastest conventional train, has reached a top speed of 574km/h. By 2025 commuters on a “maglev” line between Tokyo and Nagoya will be hurtling along at incredible speeds of up to 581km/h. A “magnetically levitating” train floats about 10mm above its guideway on a magnetic field and has low maintenance costs. They will travel the 290km in just 40 minutes. The next step is a Tokyo-Osaka trip of 480km in one hour. Rail officials say as many as 200,000 passengers a day could make the journey. The Japanese technology has been in the pipeline since the 1960s, with a major publically viewable 20km test track to the west of Tokyo since 1997.
