Watercone, a Solar Powered Water Desalinator

Simplicity in design and offering real results and benefits are the hallmark of a great invention and the Watercone seems to have it all.

Water Cone Working

Fill it up with salt water and let the sun do its thing

Water Cone Fresh Water

The results is fresh clean drinking water!

The Watercone® is a solar powered water desalinator that takes salt or brackish water and generates freshwater. It is simple to use, lightweight and mobile. The technology is simple in design and use and is discribed by simple pictograms. With max. 1,6 liters a day the Watercone® is an ideal device to cover a childs daily need of freshwater.

42.8% Efficiency: A New Record for Solar Cells

Progress…

Narrowly edging out the previous record set by Spectrolab late last year, two scientists at the University of Delaware have just created a new device that can convert 42.8% of the light striking it into electricity. The solar cell, built by Christina Honsberg and Allan Barnett, splits light into three components — high, medium and low energy light — and directs it to several different materials which can then extract electrons out of its photons.

Mushrooms as Insulation

I love it when someone sees something new in something old. This is a perfect example of developing a product to fill a need. Excellent…

Combining his agricultural knowledge with colleague Gavin McIntyre’s interest in sustainable technology, the two created their patented “Greensulate” formula, an organic, fire-retardant board made of water, flour, oyster mushroom spores and perlite, a mineral blend found in potting soil. They’re hoping the invention will soon be part of the growing market for eco-friendly products.

    HeadBlaze.com is about allowing your imagination to burn free
    More than anything else we can do, Imagination and invention is the key to our future. We are nothing without innovation and we must embrace new ideas and constantly seek out new ways to do things. We make our own future by inventing it.

    Who’s behind Head Blaze?
    Just a very curious fellow finding his way through life by questioning everything and everyone.

    Curiosity should be the flavor of the day for everyone and you should never stop questioning and most importantly never stop dreaming.

    Keep that mind open…

    “I believe in intuitions and inspirations. I sometimes feel that I am right. I do not know that I am. When two expeditions of scientists, financed by the Royal Academy, went forth to test my theory of relativity, I was convinced that their conclusions would tally with my hypothesis. I was not surprised when the eclipse of May 29, 1919, confirmed my intuitions. I would have been surprised if I had been wrong.”

    “Then you trust more to your imagination than to your knowledge?”

    “I am enough of the artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
