SOS mail

SOS mail
Portuguese Mail (CTT) has just launched a fully automated self-service Mail Station in Lisbon. Clients can access almost every mail service such as picking up and sending mail, buy tickets (to concerts and other events), pay taxes and bills. You can even purchase stamps personalised with your own photo, if you wish.
Why it matters

We all know that traditional mail (and national Mail companies) are facing an unprecedented crisis. In an online society, where almost everything is accessible virtually and in real-time, mail is slowly becoming redundant, if not useless. Portuguese CTT found a way to reach its urban consumers by offering them the same services, but with a modern and hi-tech approach. Will this experience be enough to avoid the extinction of traditional mail?

Pollution fighting pavements

German company Lithonplus has designed a revolutionary pavement that tackles pollution in urban areas. The paving stones contain titanium dioxide and use sunlight to absorb nitrogen oxides in the atmosphere, converting them into harmless nitrogen and oxygen. The technology has been debuted near a Kindergarten in Germany to help reduce pollution from the busy roads in the area.
