    Passing Cloud Concept is How You are to Travel in Future

    Passing Cloud concept
    Passing Cloud conceptPassing Cloud concept which helps float over destinations without any carbon emissions, or control over speed, direction or destination.
    Lives have changed for sure. Gone are the days when US folks had the luxury to travel destinations without a fixed location in mind, and could take our sweet time to do so. Well, all that is set to come back if artist Tiago Barros's new concept the "Passing Cloud" is to be believed as the floating cloud used to travel. Based as a futuristic concept of traveling on floating cloud-like structures, the travelers wouldn't have a fixed destination or control of speed.
    With most traveling gadgets having a high carbon emission these days, there is a demand for those which have lesser emission, if not at zero emission levels. Taking that criterion into mind, these Passing Clouds are a perfect fit, as these have no engines or motor on which it depend to work on. With an internal stainless steel cloud shaped structure, the covering is white nylon fabric with high tensile strength. When placed on the ground, the travelers could board the cloud using the ladders placed on the sides. After boarding on, the balloons would be released to float in the skies, but there is the main catch after that which we even mentioned earlier; complete loss of control in terms of time taken to travel, as wind patterns will decide the travelling direction and speed. Also, if one takes a critical look, there is always a chance where people could either fall off or land in the middle of a water body with no assistance around! We are not experts or decision makers, but it would be a safe bet on our end to wish for more of safety features and controlling mechanisms, making travelling on this futuristic device safer and more enjoyable.

    Old crates recycled into creative architecture designs

    Recycled crates
    Recycled cratesOld crates recycled into creative architecture designs
    The ordinary:
    For those who believe that by recycling you can help save many resources of this planet, the news of creating something worthwhile from old trash crates is inspiring. It not just gives you hope but also allows you to think of better ways to do it. Every one of you must be aware of the importance of milk crates in your life, they are long lasting and super durable and thus in a way good for the environment. A typical crate has the potential to last as long as 30 years, which literally means that you need not remake them repeatedly, and thus resources of the planet are saved, but all this comes with a catch. The crates are easily recycled and new crates can be created from them, but once they reach the end of the road and end up in a dump yard or a landfill, these same milk crates create an environmental hazard, as they take thousands of years to decompose. This may not be a very concerning problem if you do not take into consideration that thousands of crates end up in the dumping yards every day. Most of it happens because people are unaware that something worthwhile and good can be created from these waste crates. Some stunning creations have been made using the same discarded crates by recycling them and constructively using them to create some ingenious structures.
    Inspiration:
    With the ever increasing pollution levels, there is a great need to recycle and reuse what all can be savored. The milk crates and other bottle crates are very hard to decompose and may even last a few thousand years in the soil, thus increasing the pollution levels of the environment. To keep it in check, effective measures must be taken to ensure that the crates are recycled and utilized in a manner that is less harmful for the environment and with the usage of the milk crates in making stunning architecture, you can not only better utilize these wastes but also show others an effective way to reuse what has been discarded.
    The extraordinary:
    The crates are primarily made from hardwood or plastic and are used for transportation of materials, especially bottles from one place to another. It is a shame that most people are still ignorant about the recycling of the waste materials. These crates can be utilized to create wonderful structures that are durable and impressively stylish and designer. The crates can be used for making small or large, permanent or temporary, public or private constructions that are very energy effective and efficient, and above all very durable.
    The target group:
    The construction of buildings and structures from wasted crates can be easily done by those who are environmentally conscious, have a little creativity and have lots of waste crates readily available to them.
    Related trends:
    The latest trends are very suitable for the usage of waste crates to make astonishing structures. Five cool structures made from the waste crates of milk and beer are listed here.
    1. Slumtube

The undersides of the crates are utilized to grow Liriope grass, which can easily thrive in shade and gives the entire structure a natural green appearance.

It proves that with proper engineering and ingenuity, even waste beer crates can be transformed into something so wonderful. It has been constructed using more than 2000 beer crates and surprisingly requires very less floor space and has been designed specifically to use minimum possible surface to project a superb design with the usage of proper lightening. This marvel was not very easy to design and required several connection and load tests to be performed by the engineering team. The crates are held together in position by means of simple screws and slats. The entire Boxel Pavilion was constructed by engineers in merely a week.

    We are increasingly losing space for creating gardens that once graced our compounds. Living in high rises has done away with the luxury of having an open garden or a spacious compound where you can relax amidst the flowers and the greenery and enjoy the fresh smell of nature.
    Gone are the days when watering the plants was a favorite past time when we can hum our favorite tunes along with the buzzing bees and the chirping birds. Do you miss all these? Here are some mobile gardens that you can plant at your own private space and still enjoy the activities, though on a lower scale.

    Mobile community garden is a concept that can help a whole residential area or a community where there are only high rises and hence a total lack of greenery. The bland atmosphere can be immediately brought to life by using these mobile gardens that can be shifted around as per convenience. Constructed on a wheeled platform, the community garden is a small mobile garden where you can plant all the kitchen essentials or just flowers and beautiful shrubs. It can be parked anywhere you wish. Since it can be driven around, you will not face any law and order problems as well.

    The caravan mobile garden has an element of surprise all packed inside an innocent looking van. But open and spread it out and you see your jaws dropping in amazement. Created by Kevin Van Braak, the caravan garden is a synthetic garden with silky grass, fake trees, animals that are stiffed to look real, an electric barbecue and the chirping of the birds in the background. While this may not appeal to a village dweller who has lived amidst the greenest spaces, it could be all a city dweller could want.

    The mobile rail care is a concept that spurred out of the imagination of an artist, Joe Bodwin which got the approval of the Chicago transit system. The mobile garden is incorporated in the rail car so that the travelers get to see and enjoy the wonders of nature and get inspired themselves. The small addition in the rail car with a flat garden area is a welcome change from the concrete building that travelers are so used to gazing at. With native plants and low maintenance shrubs, it inspires many who are on a mad rush to get to their bland office spaces.

Parked in and around Brooklyn Street in the US, the small and beautiful garden has tomatoes, broccoli, parsley, arugula etc. Though it's great fun to watch the truck move around, it's the inspiration that we gather from such concepts that actually counts. Nothing is impossible if we have the will to achieve it!

    Urbanization has taken away all the open spaces where we could have planted gardens and trees for our enjoyment and benefit of the nature. Now sky scrapers and industrial complexes occupy these beautiful spaces that were once wonderful green areas full of the fresh scent of nature. Moving urban gardens could be a great concept that can be introduced in urban areas. These gardens are small gardens that are grown on moving platforms that have wheels. Families that are always on the move would find this a wonderful alternative.
