Clip Watch

I’ve been thinking about a watch I can put on my coat or bag, which tells me time when I need to know because when it’s cold, my watch is under the thick coat and is hard to take out.

By making it look like a button, it may go well with many kinds of outer wears.

Click the face once and it displays the time and date on the glass face for a few seconds. (I figure we usually don’t need to stare at a watch for a long time.)

Solar battery panels charges electricity for the display.

Sketches

Before going to a new item, I dug a few sketches from my Moleskine.

Mitsubishi and two other Japanese firms invented this foliage plant-like solar cell module by using organic thin-film solar cells. I thought it would be nice if there’s something good to look at and environmentally friendly in your room like this.

Solar Battery + Room Lamp

Again I have absolutely no idea on how this would work, but it would be nice if there were a lamp which also works as a solar panel.
My idea is a half-spherical shape with two holes like these:

Reduce the solar radiation before reaching the earth

disk in orbit for green house effect

OK. I don’t know anything about global warming, so if I’m being an idiot, just laugh it off.
Simply put, this solar powered glass plate floating on the orbit blocks some solar radiation. We can switch the plate from “transparent mode”, which just blocks only specific kind of light to “black mode”, which cut any kind of light off. We can switch the modes from the earth with the usual remote control. So it’s like putting sunglasses above the earth; sunglasses that can become usual glasses.

In short, you can ADJUST the sunlight coming to the earth.
Of course, only a single disc does not change anything, but if there are one thousand of them above your city, it can make a small change.

By the way, is it possible to transcend electricity in the air?
