In Project: Boing Boing Video

<p><a href="http://iftf.org/">Institute for the Future</a> teamed up with <a href="http://sun.com/">Sun Microsystems</a> and <a href="http://boingboingvideo.com/">Boing Boing Video</a> to co-host the <a href="http://digitalopen.org/">Digital Open</a>, an online tech expo for teens 17 and under around the world.</p>
<p>We're publishing an 8-part series of videos profiling the winners. Today, meet 15-year-old Ferran Rovira Bosca, of Spain. He created a concept for an "<a href="http://proyectocea.blogspot.com/">Eco Self-Sustaining House</a>" -- architecture of the future that captures its own renewable energy, and operates off the grid. Ferran believes technology can help us come up with new ways of protecing the environment and saving money in our households at the same time. He says he learns a lot about what's possible in this realm from exploring sustainable technology websites online.</p>
