Some fun sustainability-related technologies are being showcased at various pavilions at the Expo Milano, aka the World’s Fair, under the theme ‘“Feeding the Planet - Energy for Life.”

Check out the full slide show, and in particular:

  • No. 1 - The swing that converts kinetic energy into electricity (can you say ‘playground as power plant’ 3 times really fast?).
  • No. 5 - Solar- and bike-powered recycling carts that have potential for any cart-related need (you know there are many… but ice-cream vendor is the most important of course).
  • No. 8 - Solar shade structures - ‘trees’ - that generate and store electric energy during the day, then use it at night to power LED site  lighting.
  • And No. #10 - For no other reason than seeing if you can guess why it deserved it’s place on the list along with other clean-technologies / sustainable food-practices… No, me either.
