The day starts normal with a semblance
The moment I step out, the garden fills me with its fragrance
Without paying attention to the clouds forming rings
The gutsy wind surrounds me with cadence
The path is full of ups and downs making me tenacious
The flying birds are chirping with a musical brilliance
The devotional songs from the temple nearby revealing the god’s omniscience
The light fresh breeze kissing the face to wipe the sweat away with vengeance
The eyes gaze the passers-by with casual impertinence
As the walk progresses the mind anticipates for a better experience
The waving trees reminds me that the reality of a dream is non existence
The cruelty of time passing by forces me to be cognizance
As I turn back to retrace my steps the world around me becomes irrelevance
The day starts normal with expectations for a new attainments.
Liquid Robotics is a company that built a boat called “wave glider robot” that uses wave power to propel itself forward. We have many monitoring stations on the ground but this one is on the ocean to monitor water quality for Oil companies like the ones we have in India. The Boats are also equipped with solar cells has zero emissions, requires no fueling, and doesn’t need any power. The company give away the boats for free but sell the data monitoring services. Dept.of Oceanography, ONGC , Reliance and other offshore / Onshore companies should take a hard look at these emerging technologies. More details click here. http://liquidr.com/
We all know that polystyrene (Plastic materials) is used extensively, practically non-biodegradable, toxic to marine and other life, and not really recyclable but just reused. The reused material is again thrown away. A New York based company ECOVATIVE came up with a idea of mixing mixing agricultural waste, such as rice husks and oat hulls, with Mycellium (Mushroom) ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XI5frPV58tY in the growth phase by making the mushroom hard enough so that they can use this biodegradable material instead of polystyrene. The stuff is used by companies such as Steelcase, Ford to name a few.
