Love Story Bamboo Pixel Project

The Sign almost done!

Pixels in place! There’s a little more love in Ubud today!

I am really excited about this sign we’re assembling for a funky new sustainability store in the center of town. Yesterday, we got the last of the 600 bottles in place to complete the sign! The letters are made from bottles with water and food coloring, […]

Bamboo Pixel Project is alive at the World Innovation Forum

Shine Time!  Last night we plugged in the pixels and ignited our bamboo pixel project at the Global Innovation Forum outside of Jakarta.  3 meters by 2meters and 600 bottles make a luminous wall of light for the Akademy Bambu Nisantara’s pilot Rumah Oksigen– a sample of a super low cost house made from bamboo rather than steel reinforcement.  Since […]

Solar Bottle Pixel Project

 

Tadahhh! Here is the finished installation of our Solar Bottle Pixel Project on Parang Sumo beach, Java, Indonesia. We couldn’t have done it without the Gardu Action Team– they worked even while fasting for Ramadan! Matarnoan Budy Bamboo!

What Sorcery is this?!

The other day I got the best compliment ever.

My sister, Ian and I had been walking the dark Sagada streets to get to the local bar and I had been using the flash light functionality of my latest prototype EcoCharger. I set it on the table as we ordered our beers, the light still on. One of the waiters came […]

Prayer Ecobrick

Its one thing to pack plastics into bottles.  It is another to solve pollution.  You simply cannot solve a problem with the same consciousness that generated it– no matter how much plastics you put into bottles.  Fundamentally its spiritual.

So, how to make the shift?

I am excited to be in Manila this week.  I was invited by the […]

Vision Bottle Brick Guide

I am feeling excited and grateful for an amazing window of opportunity.  I am working on a simple document, that I feel will have a dramatic effect on Mt.

Solar Trash Charger version 0.2

The concept of the bottle charger is evolving. I realized that I might be trying to do a little too much with my first trash charger by making it both wind and solar.  Far wiser, I have realized is to do one right, then move on to integrating the other.

So, solar first.  Here you can see the drastically simplified version […]
