Waterfront property can be extremely expensive. The land itself sells for a premium. But a new eco-friendly solution can give homeowners a house without the land, resting atop the water. Known as the EcoFloLife WaterNest, the homes are approximately 328 square feet and made almost entirely from recyclable materials.

But eco-friendliness is only part of the WaterNest’s appeal. Since these homes rest atop water, they feature waterfront views and natural lighting, thanks to built-in skylights. Additionally, the homes utilize natural energy sources due to photovoltaic panels that are built into the roof of the building. The panels are able to provide as much as four kWp of electricity to the home.

Discarded plastic bottles are a serious risk to the environment, with the World Economic Forum reporting that by 2050, the Earth’s oceans will contain more plastic than fish. But a new invention from a product design student in Iceland offers an innovative solution. AriJónsson’s revolutionary water bottle actually decomposes once it’s been tossed in the trash.

While water is still inside, the bottle holds its shape. However, as soon as its contents are empty, the bottle begins to decompose. The technology works because the bottle is made from a mixture of algae and water, which relies heavily on water inside in order to retain its shape.

Drones have become popular with hobbyists interested in capturing flyover video of local attractions. But the advanced tech gadgets have proven useful in a variety of industries, especially agriculture.

Also known as unmanned aerial vehicles, drones can cover a large distance quickly while also taking up very little airspace. At the same time, demands on the agricultural field will only continue to grow as the world’s population increases. Experts anticipate that by the year 2050, consumption of agricultural products will grow by as much as 70 percent, challenging farmers and manufacturers to keep up.
