New Hybrid Battery Technology Needed – Interior Designs Considered

If it isn’t obvious to you, it should be. That is to say it should be obvious that we need a new battery technology, and we need more innovation in that sector if we are to enjoy the future of electric cars. Right now the batteries are too heavy, and they require elements and compounds which may not be readily available. Lithium for instance is in short supply worldwide.

Also, batteries only last so long before they are no good anymore and then we end up throwing them away, and this will cause problems for our landfills. There are many new research projects going on right now at some of the top universities in battery technology, but we need to move them along faster. Specifically, we need to work on the interior structure of the batteries, and consider some new designs. For instance, maybe the structures inside of these batteries need to take on the design and properties of;

Olympic Rings
Webbed Mesh
Foam Structure

Now then, if you’d like to learn more about battery technologies there is an interesting video that like to recommend to you online. It’s not too hard to find and you can probably discover it by using any major search engine: MIT Lecture; “How do we think against the grain? Pose the right question,” by Donald Sadoway.

The speaker makes very good points, and things we need to be cognizant of as we move forward into electric car future. Remember we need lithium for batteries for personal tech devices like cell phones, tablets, and computer systems. And that means the cost of the batteries for electric cars or hybrids goes way up. If we use other types of batteries, well they are not as good, and the batteries don’t last as long.

This becomes a problem for our nation’s dumps and landfills. It’s something we need to worry about, and it is unfortunate that we are moving ahead with electric cars before these problems are adequately solved. Nevertheless, here we go into the future, which brings me to my main point here; we need to accelerate research in battery technology to find the best combination for the forward progression of human technologies. Please consider all this.

Home Interior Design Options: Small, Medium and Large Floor Pillows

Large floor pillows have long been used as a functional and decorative piece in homes for centuries. They are popular in Algerian, Korean, Japanese, Indian, Egyptian, and Moroccan cultures. They have now crossed over to other countries. This comes as no surprise since they are beautiful and useful. And you can always count on them to elevate the appearance of any home or office space, as well as make it more comfortable.

Unlike what most people believe, you do not need your home to have an oriental motif in order to put large floor pillows to good use. You can put a western twist to it so that it can identify with and complement European and American aesthetics. You could start with the coverings you dress them with or the way they are arranged in your home. You could also experiment with the colors so they don’t overwhelm the surrounding furnishings. And maybe incorporate unifying elements to different design themes so that they still come in cohesion even though they are unique from each other.

Take for example, in the dining room, you could have a minimalist, low-lying dining table made of glass and steel set up on top of a black and white area rug and then surround it with golden floor pillows for that futuristic look with a traditional Japanese feel. With this particular home interior design, you will have no problem incorporating crystal chandeliers, metal ornaments as well as modern abstract pieces. In the den, you could pick large pillows with funky patterns and textures; pile them up in the middle, in front of the television set, and then have a mural hung on the background or a carpet underneath that has all of the colors used represented.

Of course, you can also opt for the conventional feel and have the room or house you own completely decorated in Japanese or Moroccan furnishings. There are a number of shops you can find in your locality or on the web that sells flat, comfy zabutons or zafu (traditional Japanese floor pillows) or round fluffy Moroccan floor pillows. You have to be conscious though about how their innate structures and designs will match the environment they will be placed in. See, typical Japanese floor pillows are simple and a bit drab colored while leather-made Moroccan versions are more exotic and a bit overbearing. The same goes of Indian sari pillows as most of them are embellished with beads and tapestries.

There are shops online that you can also approach for custom made floor pillows, so you not only get exactly what you want but have complete control over the quality, quantity and appearance of each piece. You could have one made in the shape of a certain character with the accent of an old-fashioned Oriental pillow. Or you could have one made that could accommodate more than one person sleeping. You can also designate whether these pillows will have cotton, polyester, feather or foam fillings. Whatever you go with, you are definitely guaranteed a unique and therapeutic experience when you provide your home floor pillow fixtures.

Making the Right Bed Purchase for Interior Design Appeal

Many will look towards purchasing a bed for the interior of a home or apartment for its functional use. In other words, they will want to acquire a stylish, comfortable bed that gives them a good night’s sleep. Certainly, there is nothing wrong with that at all. Who would not want to get a good night’s rest? The issue here is that some overlook another benefits to purchasing a bed. Specifically, that the type of bed you purchase will add to the look and feel of the interior.

Some might not believe this is so but such an assessment flies in the face of the work produced by quality designers. Yes, there are many professionals that sit at the proverbial drawing boards in manufacturer’s offices and help craft designs that will boost the appeal of a particular style of interior. This is why so many designs and styles look different. Yes, there are some generic bed designs on the market. The description “generic” does fit them most appropriately. They do not have all that special or stunning of a look and that greatly diminishes their ability to be truly appealing to potential customers.

Why add a bed design to the interior of a residence that does little to boost its look? Or worse, why add a particular model to the interior if the it simply lacks anything of clear substance or value?

Some might point to cost as a factor in their decision making. Such an assessment may make sense. You cannot purchase a model that in not affordable and few would suggest doing so. That said, it also would not be of much help to purchase an inexpensive bed that totally undermines the look of the interior.

And then there is another point that bears mentioning; not all well designed beds are really all that expensive. It is quite possible to purchase something as exquisite as leather sleigh beds at a relatively reduced rate. As long as you take the time out to shop around for inexpensive models, you will find beds that fit such a category description. Why would you not? They are definitely out there and ‘in need’ of a purchaser!

One way you can increase the chances of purchasing a quality and unique bed at a relatively low price would entail being thorough in your consumer search. Examining the websites of one or two stores is not a bad idea, but it is a limiting one. Specifically, you would be limited to the selection that appears on those two web pages and those two web pages alone. You could be missing out on finding other excellent deals and designs available elsewhere.

And when you are seeking to impart a certain specific look and feel to a room, you do not want to make the error of being limited in your selection. In short, you will want to shop around in order to find the right leather sleigh beds for your needs and your budget. Why make the wrong selection when making the right selection could prove to have enormous value?
