Greenbang likes gadgets – what right minded human being doesn’t? – and Nokia has just unveiled some gadget porn of the highest order.
The environmentally friendly badboy can be found over here, where Nokia says:
Our visionary design concept is a mobile phone and compatible sensing device that will help you stay connected to your friends and loved ones, as well as to your health and local environment. You can also share the environmental data your sensing device collects and view other users’ shared data, thereby increasing your global environmental awareness.
Despite its rather does-what-it-says-on-the-tin approach to naming, there’s some good stuff in the Eco.
Printed electronics, reclaimed materials, alternative energy sources, sensor networks to keep you in touch with your environment. The only thing is doesn’t do is take the rubbish out for you and tuck you up at night.
Alas, like all of Greenbang’s favourite things – unicorns and MacGuyver among them – the Eco doesn’t exist yet. It’s just a concept.
Surely the boffins at Nokia could take time off from contributing 80 percent of Finland’s economy to get on with making the Eco a reality? Greenbang will even help out and make the tea.
