PBUWCD: Month of January

2009 is coming to an end and I am sad to see it go. So sad, that I thought for the Permian Basin UWCD calendars that I would leave the dates for the month of January as they were in 2009 and not 2010. Yes I have made a mistake. I apologize to those who you who have received the misdated calendar but I have your solution below.

Link It To Me: Round 2

Link It To Me is a list of links suggested by my Twitter followers. I am in no way promoting any products or contests by featuring a link on this blog. It is a way for my readers to see different ideas or products that they may not come across in their daily googling sessions.

Eco Sign
Are you lost again? Turn to the nearest manhole for help then. I’m not kidding as we’re showing you an innovative design here, the ‘Eco Sign’. It is a digital manhole that provides information about location of public transportation. Simply put your left or right foot on it for 2 seconds, the manhole will then refer you to the nearest train station or bus stop. More amazingly, it is powered by rainwater.

Flying Water Catcher

“I hope I live long enough to own one of these! The fanciful Water Catcher, conceptualized by Penghao Shan from Zhejiang Sci-Tech University, China, is a finalist in the Electrolux Design Lab ‘09.”
“It is a robotic “birdie” that flies about, returning home with a bounty of water gathered from rain or humidity. The idea seems a bit silly initially, but watch the video; you’ll likely be won over with the “wants” for the little hydro-whirlybird like I did. Even the Jetsons didn’t have it this good!”

Saving Water, Staying Clean

New York Times article by By STEPHEN TREFFINGER.

Treffinger, did a study on 17 shower heads to find which one used the least amount of water, but still provided "an acceptably robust shower", among other things. His findings are interesting.
