Brian’s Links 20 March 2012: Invisibility and Environmentalism

The invisible car.  Really its a zero-emissions vehicle, the LED invisibility is just an analogy. Two technological feats for one car!

And while we are on the subject of invisibility, check out artist Liu Bolin hiding in plain sight in New York City and other places around the world.

Yes, court-ordered forced abortions are still illegal in the United States, though this case had to go to the appeals court

For Catholics in the Occupy movement, a new gathering point on the web. More info here at the ever-informative

This looks like a really great new wind power technology. They’re “windstalks.” Just swaying in the breeze.

Here is a great story about how people are getting to the bottom of where their meat comes from and how it is raised.  One of the farms mentioned, Soul Food Farm in Vacaville, CA, is a splendid little place with tasty free-range eggs. My family and I are lucky to have access to farms like this. Free-range is a great way to go.

Will there be moral machines?

Portland’s public toilets are metal shacks with almost no privacy.  They are cold and uninviting. And they are proving to be the best public toilets ever invented.

And finally, a man trying to save his island nation from rising sea-levels. President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives (who was unfortunately recently ousted). Turns out that environmentally “invisible” car above can’t come too soon – it and everything else we need to set our ourselves right.
