Making the world a better place

with Toyota technology

Making the world a better place

What do we focus on

What do we focus on?

Something that effects everyone

AIR

Most air pollution is caused by burning fossil fuels

Fossil fuels are burned largely to produce electrical energy

Technology and electronics consume a lot of that energy

WE NEED TO REDUCE THAT


What can we do

What can we do?

  • People are little bit lazy

  • They don’t like to change their behavior

    So we have to make something that is easy for people to use. Without doing anything differently, they can still make a difference.


Let s think about laptops

Let’s think about laptops

  • 117 million laptops in the US

  • The energy they use is the equivalent of 5.5 million barrels of oil per year

What if you could reduce energy consumption by using your laptop just like you do every day?


Hybrid technology

Electrical Energy

Mechanical Energy

Green Key

  • A new keyboard technology for laptops


How will it work

How will it work?

  • Each key will be connected to a nanogenerator, similar to the hybrid technology in a Toyota Prius, just very very small.

  • When you type, the mechanical energy produced by the keystroke will be transformed into electricity that will charge the battery.


How will it work1

How will it work?

  • Laptops needs more power than mechanical energy alone can provide, that’s why the traditional battery will be kept.

  • But you can go longer between charges, which means your laptop can stay unplugged more often.

    The net energy usage is lower.


Why is it good for the consumers

Why is it good for the consumers?

  • You get more use out of every battery charge cycle

  • For the person who is using the computer, they don’t have to be stuck to the wall outlet.

  • It makes your laptop better by making it more portable.

  • And that’s the whole point of a laptop.


Why is it good for the world

Why is it good for the world?

Less energy is sucked out of the wall

Less fossil fuel is used to produce that energy

Less air pollution

If we could extend battery charge by just 5%, we could save 300,000 barrels of oil per year, which would reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
