The proposal is part of a push by the company to acclimate people to the technologies that it’s deploying in cities like New York and Toronto. Globally, competition for contracts to deploy sensors, data management,...

In 2013, 254 million tonnes of trash was produced in the U.S. alone... Source

This flower-vase is also a fire-extinguisher

As useful as they are, fire-extinguishers are also designed to be too utilitarian and technical. They’re stored in attics and store-rooms, because they aren’t particularly aesthetic, and working them usually requires knowing how to operate them.Even though laws dictate that all homes in South Korea need to have a fire extinguisher, as many as 58% of them don’t… and the ones that do, have them lying in hard-to-reach places. In order to equip Koreans with a product that’s easy to use, and can si...
