A virtual power station
A virtual power station (VPS) is a collection of solar panels, batteries and electrical appliances (such as air conditioners) in a neighbourhood that are intelligently managed to maintain the stability of the power supply. A VPS can help to avoid future blackouts by optimising how, when and where we use energy in our homes. https://blog.csiro.au/energy-intelligence-tackle-blackouts/

A fence that keeps your cat safe at home
When cats try to jump and scale the fence they will place a paw on a paddle, which then spins so they can't get traction, and they fall safely back to the ground. https://www.oscillot.com.au
