Relief from the smell, health hazards and cleaning duty is now around the corner. Thanks goes to the Israeli cats that first tested the system - and to Israeli company PetNovations for inventing an automated self-flushing cat box called the CatGenie. It is now available to Americans everywhere.

Like a port-a-potty for cats, the device employs re-usable and washable granules that the built-in machine cleans with the press of a button, or through automated settings. Liquid waste drops through to a sanitation chamber, and the dissolved solid waste, with the liquids, are flushed down the drain.

A group of young Israeli idealists have taken Erlandson's vision to another level. Inspired by fig trees growing on structures in Africa, Plantware's founders have found a way to manipulate roots from trees such as figs, and to grow them into useful structures.

The aim is to one day build the structures of homes from living trees - and save the planet at the same time.
