Here’s a good team up: Sony and the WWF together have an active initiative to gather ideas from around the world on how we can make the world a better place. Why are Sony involved? They want to see how their technology can help.
The program is called Open Planet Ideas and is being run as a community with a challenge. The first step is to read the brief (found at http://bit.ly/aMPzEV), read some of the concepts (found at http://bit.ly/ccvdpd) and then get involved. If you want to you can [join the challenge]. I’ve done so, my idea is called Responsiblity Through Personal Power and is a high science call to action. If you can’t come up with a concept of your own then you can take part by commenting on mine or any of the other ideas in their database. All in all it’s pretty easy to join the challenge so there’s no reason to hold back.
In brief, my idea is that people would use power more responsibility if it was more personal. To achieve this we have to move away from fixtures in the wall and to personal and portable units (think about how personal your mobile phone is to you). It might be far future but it’s not too hard to imagine a bike ride to work charging up a crystal and then that same crystal being used to power the microwave for your lunch time snack.
One of the key aspects to the Open Planet Ideas community is the use of technology. As Sony are involved the obvious source of tech to watch, comment on, poke or otherwise dream and debate around is SonyTech. The good news is that Sony doesn’t shy away from this. There’s a list of current SonyTech you can mention on the site too (here, in fact: http://bit.ly/a4B99P).
