I want the ability to take all different forms of energy and pump them into a battery that my house can then use for electricity.
I want a battery that captures the energy generated by the movement of my body that can be removed when I get home (or just periodically) and plugged into a larger energy capturing unit.
I want the ability to plug a stationary bike or rowing machine or whatever the fuck into a wall and use it to generate energy.
I want to have little paddles in my downspouts, and mini-windmills, and solar panels that shift as the earth moves, tilting to catch as much sunlight as possible, and I want them all to dump that energy into storage.
It should be neat, well-designed, and fucking EASY to do this. Dammit.
Also, I want a magazine or book or something that caters to "packrat style" home decoration. All the current magazines are about having NOTHING in your rooms but a few decorations. I HATE that look.
And all the links for "packrat" take you to places that teach you how to declutter and clean. Now, I appreciate a well-organized space as much as the next person, and goodness knows my house is a pit and I hate it. BUT, I love cubbies and shelving and built-in storage. I like using every inch of a room. I like it to look busy and slightly crazy, but easily searchable. Where's my Martha Stewart-esque goddess of dense design?
Fuck the mainstream.
