Enviromental Tablets – Apple Makes Being Green a Top Priority With Eco-Friendly iPads

January 29, 2010

The eco-friendly iPad has many assets that make it a great tablet for the environment. First of all, it will undoubtedly save quite a few trees from being chopped down because of its e-reader feature.

Another green attribute of the iPad is that it is highly recyclable according to Steve Jobs. He states that the iPad is arsenic-free, BFR-free, mercury-free and PVC-free, so it can follow Greenpeace’s Guide to Recycling Electronics. One more awesome aspect is that the battery life is 10 hours so the device doesn’t need to be hooked up to an outlet for a good period of time. The iPad’s 30-day standby battery life means that it hardly needs to be charged at night! My phone cannot even claim that and it does a whole lot less than the iPad.  Via: Luisa Amanda Gomes

Glowing Jelly Hotels -The Abu Dhabi Yas Hotel is the World’s Largest LED Structure

December 9, 2009

The Abu Dhabi Yas Hotel is one of the city’s most elaborate and magnificently designed luxury hotels, but now it will boast another title—it is the world’s largest LED structure.

Designed by Asymptote Architecture, the Abu Dhabi Yas Hotel features LED lighting designed by Arup, which wraps around the building like a dazzling neon shell due to its more than 5,300 sparkling diamond-shaped LED panels. According to Inhabitat, the curvilinear structure of lights can also change color as well as display low-resolution 3D videos.
