Each time technology improves it seems like companies find more and more way to become innovative and create something that will help to make this planet even greener. As technology and greener ideas merge together we as consumers seek to benefit. Each time green technology improves it means we spend less and less on our electric bill each month while also helping the environment, both very good things. That’s why a new monitor by a company called Green House could change the way we think of powering monitors for our computers now and into the further as technology continues to get greener.
So what is it that makes this monitor so different from the current computer monitors on the market? Well the new TFT LCD screen by a company called Green House is different from other monitors in the fact that it runs off of just USB power and nothing else. That means that you won’t have to have an additional power cord sticking out the back of it to bring more power to the unit and in turn saving yourself a lot on the electric bill each month while helping the environment too. The LCD isn’t that small, being 15.6 inches, but it can have an aspect ratio of 400:1 and a max resolution of 1366×768. This isn’t going to turn any heads compared to the other monitors on the market of the same size, but it will make a difference in terms of how it is powered. The size of the monitor is a big drawback, but it is a step in the right direction and as more and more companies become energy aware, we as consumers seek to benefit each time. The price is a problem with this product due to the fact that it is two hundred and fifteen dollars, but the money you will save in the long run by using less electricity will have the monitor paying for itself in no time.
While this new piece of green technology is not earth shattering, it is a definite step in the right direction. The more companies who decide to step into this realm the more the environment benefits. There is no reason why companies can’t invest in such technology and as long as other companies catch on we can expect to see bigger and better monitors in the further. Not only does this new piece of technology save on energy, but it also makes the computer monitor very practical to use anywhere. There are times when there are tight spaces and it is hard to plug in a computer or you would like to use it as a monitor for your laptop and with a USB feature you are now able to plug it right in without any problem and save on energy at the same time. This new invention is a real step toward making technology better and greener for years to come.
