We’ll pick our favorite response to come out to NYC for the “Greener Gadgets Conference on February 27th 2009. Since the editors will pick their favorite comment as the winner, and you’ll get points for originality – so if you come up with a green gadget from 2005 that we’ve totally forgotten about, you’ll have an edge over twenty people who all pick the ENERJAR (the 2008 Greener Gadgets Competition winner).

*Please note that we are giving away one free TICKET to the Greener Gadgets Conference – we are not covering airfare or accommodation in NYC, so if you plan to attend this event, please either already live in NYC, or be willing to fund your own travel and accommodations to NYC.

    L’Hermitte’s “Watts Maker” cell phone charger not only saves on electrical bills, it also encourages the use of cycles as a means of transport as it stores energy from peddling around town. Coupled with the battery pack pedal assists that are being developed for the retail market, the Watts Maker could help the US with its increasing waistline as well. Next on the green list: the expansion of bike trails and cycle lanes on major thoroughfares to get America back on two wheels!

    My vote is for the Blueline Powercost monitor. There are other power monitors out there, but I actually appreciate that this one is affordable for most families. The design takes a no-frills, function-over-form approach, but for everyday use, it doesn’t have to be fancy. For low to moderate income families, being able to save anything in the current economic environment does make a difference. If we can educate families about how to use these types of gadgets to be more conscious consumers of electricity, I think we could make a big difference within individual households and -if you all all those up – on a larger scale. Gadgets like this will change the way that people consume electricity in the way that the Prius changes the way people drive. Plus, This gadget is already being used by a lot of people. The green coffee printer is very fun and exciting in concept, but would the every day person really give up color printing and their standard inkjet simply for the novelty of using their coffee grounds? This doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate other gadgets that are much “sexier”. I think that sort of thinking and producing is exactly the direction we should go! BUT, since most of the gadgets are consumer goods, I have to say that I will always favor green consumer products that affect our ways of consumption and are accessible to a wide range of people (it just makes more green sense!).

    My favorite gadget is the Cardboard CPU – imagine how much less plastic (and petroluem) would be used! The solar blinds are also cool.

    I would love seeing my kids feeding the power hog!

    I think the flexible Screen Display from HP is amazing. They are supposed to be virtually indestructible, use less energy and cost less than conventional screens, already right now. thinking of mass production, it will be a lot more cheaper, i guess. If we think a bit further in the future this could mean that it can be used not only for conventional displaying your pc-desktop. Most of the time we use printing paper for a short amount of time (printing an offer, something to read on the couch). Soon, I estimate it will be possible to store on it some kind of data, like on a paper. Maybe passive, like on a RFID chip. Our trees wouldn’t have to suffer that much anymore, climate protection would do a big step.

    I don’t know if it counts, but I like the zero energy fridge that British girl invented for use in Africa.

    I definitely like the RITI Coffee Printer the best. Now let’s hope I win some tickets. 😉

    I have two favorite greener gadgit items mentioned on yor site. One is the sustainable skivvies (who could argue with this) and another was the solar blinds featured recently.

    I like the solar blinds. Blight. Needs some tweaking but this way everyone can be solar in the summer months when we keep blinds closed anyway. Love your site!!!!

    I’m in favor of the SunLight. A Solar powered flashlight, power supply for all your gadgets, what could be better. Strap this to your backpack while out hiking during the day, and have light at night…sweet.

    I also must claim the Green Coffee Printer. I cannot think of anything more handy and genius. At the same time saving energy by making two devices one.

    Hi guys, just wanted to tell you first that you are awsome and i’m really please to be a member now. i’ve been following the Green trend now via “” and i always get excited when i log on here.

    My favorite Gaget thus far is “Riti Coffee printer” becaus e it really tappes on evryday people’s life. it combines two very important elements, first addiction to caffeine by most of people around the world and the use of printers which has become a “MUST” in this new era of Business. The fact that you can make a good quality printing with grounds of coffee definately cut cost of priting and also at the same time address the issue of recycling to your ming each time you see those grounds of coffee.

    Thank You Guys.

    I liked the Turn2Green waste weighing gadget and community ( I’ve started doing a similar monitoring of my waste and recycling using a Daytum account, and added in transportation and meals:
