South Korean designers Je Sung Park and Woo Jung Kwon have finished an extraordinary umbrella -”Air Umbrella.”
This umbrella has no canopy, instead, a slim pipe blows enough air to keep the rain away. The user can control the length of its stem and the scale of air cover at will.This cool, creative design brakes the traditional thought on the shape of umbrellas. It is also eco-friendly as it reduces the use of plastics.

The field of Alternative and renewable sources of energy is full with diverse sources and resources, all of which are replete with manifold promise and potential. One of these is the source of Biofuels,which are produced by converting organic matter into fuel instead of discarding them simply as waste matter. This includes the use of ethanol and derivatives of plants such as soybean, sugar cane, vegetable and corn oils. Of course, it is an important alternative to the current fossil fuels we all rely intently upon-still, all ethanol products are not usable as an alternative energy source. Still, statistics from the International Energy Agency (IEA) postulate that by 2025, up to 10 % and by 2050, up to 30% of the world’s energy needs (in terms of being used mostly as gasoline) can be met by ethanol as compared to 2% being met today.
