Light Blossom: creative flower-like streetlight
The idea is this: when it's sunny, the 'flower's leaves' open up slowly so it can feed on solar energy.
If however it's cloudy & windy, it closes it's leaves so it can rotate them, thereby generating wind energy. And of course, it's smart enough to switch effectively between both states.
But the most amazing thing is this: if there's no sun and no wind, it'll switch to nuclear energy! Nuclear-backpack-type technology is actually decades old. Meanwhile, things have gotten even smaller. By cooperating with Russia's Federal Technology Agency, Philips has managed to further shrink nuclear capability to the point that it now fits inside something the size of a pole. Albeit highly classified for years, it now seems they're finally coming out with this new Juggernaut of technology. An amazing accomplishment, especially since everything I have been saying just now is nothing more then a joke. I mean, come on, nuclear energy in a streetlight!? The relevant question now: if I had been going on for a while, bloody serious, would I have had even the slightest chance of convincing you? And if so, what does that mean?
So much for this week's episode of Philosophy for the Insane. Thank you for watching and stay tuned :)
