Solar Powered Pyramids Light Up The UAE

first_imgAs part of a UAE competition, a group of designers has come up with the Lunar Cubit: a solar powered pyramid that both provides power and looks beautiful.The Lunar Cubit won first prize in the Land Art Generator Initiative, which is a competition focused on aesthetically pleasing green energy facilities. Essentially, the design is little more than a pyramid-shaped solar plant covered in solar panels. THe nine pyramids–one large one surrounded by smaller plants–are also equipped with a series of LED light that light up the night according to the current lunar phase.Attractive or not, the Lunar Cubit does seem a touch impractical, as one nine-pyramid set-up is only able to power around 250 homes.Via Fast Companylast_img
