The emergence of the pandemic has put the world on pause or at least slowed down its activity to levels that can be seen at a glance, the environmental impact dramatically decreased, modifying the planet’s postcard. We..."

Rabdomante

"Rabdomante: The Utopia of Water. Solar energy, an essential source of life for our planet, is used to generate electricity through a photovoltaic process. The Rabdomante stores the sun’s energy in batteries that then power devices called Peltier Cells. Then, water condensation occurs on the cold side of the cells when the get in contact with the atmosphere. So, water is obtained. The combination of nature with technology allows us to generate a new life cycle in the desert, obtaining water from the atmosphere..."

Robotika, The Nannybot

"Robotika is the result of us making ourselves two main questions: 1. Are we as human beings able to guarantee our own kind survival? 2.

Since 2003, large viruses have been found ensconced in permafrost, a layer of soil in the Arctic that is usually permanently frozen. Rising temperatures and melting ice could see the reappearance of ancient deadly viruses. It looks like all kinds of infection-causing viruses could defrost as the world warms. Glaciator works as an antivirus that compress the..."
