Smallest Solar Cinema, New Tesla Electric, After Global Warming
Worlds Smallest Cinema is Solar Powered
Take a 1960′s two berth caravan, single axle travel trailer. Give the travel trailer to a media arts charity called Undercurrents and let them convert the stubby little trailer into a movie theater. Seating 8 adults or twelve children, the Sol Cinema runs on four large lithium ion batteries charged by two 120 watt solar panels. Undercurrents encourages people to make environmental films. You know, the smallest solar cinema might be a great place to see a 3D movie.
Tesla Test Drive
The Tesla electric car is rolling off the assembly line. It is the first and only highway ready electric vehicle in serial production in the nation. To anyone that is drawn to a slick sports car or a green car, they are also drawn to the Tesla.
People that have an opportunity to test drive the car are reporting that the Tesla surpasses expectations in almost every way. The Tesla drives like a smooth refined Volvo, accelerates like a Corvette, corners like a Indy car, and passes every gas station like a skateboard.
The Tesla has regeneration capability every time you step on the brakes. This causes drag kind of like a Jake brake on a big truck. The car slows to a stop while the braking process generates more electricity. At slower speeds, the car will stop with out really applying the brakes. This is one thing that takes a little getting used to.
After Global Warming, what Will the World Look Like?
Two artists, Robert Graves and Didier Madoc-Jones, began a project in 2007 to demonstrate through pictures what the world might look like after global warming. By using the latest techniques in digital photo imaging, the two artists have created their own futuristic and apocalyptic view of their beloved London. The show is called “Postcards From the Future” and is showing at the Museum of London.
The images are based loosely on scientific theory and their own artist imagination which provides a very visual reminder of what global warming might look like. In this case, pictures may well be worth a thousand words.
Images that show a rice paddy in the square next to Buckingham Palace, camels grazing and a sea of shanty housing is a very visual imprint. The artists tried to take locations that people are familiar with and demonstrate what those locations might look like with rising sea levels. The show resembles a horror show that imprints images that reminds all of us the possible effects of global warming.
Rising sea levels, food scarcity, extreme sun, drought, rice paddies, camels, eco-inhabitants, shandy towns, wind turbines - sounds like south east Asia. After global warming, we may find ourselves sitting in the worlds smallest solar cinema watching ourselves in the movies.
