    Next giant leap for mankind

    Challenge- Solve the green energy issue


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     robsbeats' vision 'is that a kind of device will be developed that will utilize extremely high heat and high pressure to convert human waste into usable fuel ... The device would replace waste treatment sewage plants, and turn them into power plants.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer



    In this era of great technical advancement we've all been living through, one consideration now would be; how we can offset the completely damaging negative effects of that which we've created, and our waste that accumulates every day?


    I am a uniquely imaginative and artistic person, but in many ways the answer to this question is beyond my grasp. I am currently studying as a Grad student in industrial design in the hopes that one day one of my wild ideas could materialize into a significant contribution to the human race, and mother earth. We need to be better to the earth, and ourselves.


    This illustration depicts an idea of mine. This high heat pressure and extraction machine would be applied as a solution to doing something with human waste. In essence it would turn human excrement into a refined type of fuel. It would turn what goes into our toilets into energy to fuel our cities. I'm still working out the kinks in the concept, but you get the idea. Got a better one?
