Meet Digital Open (digitalopen.org) winning teen Ferran Rovira Bosca, of Spain. This 15-year-old created a concept for an "Eco Self-Sustaining House" -- architecture of the future that captures its own renewable energy, and is independent of electrical power companies. Ferran believes that technology can help us come up with new ways of protecing the environment, and designing our homes in new, smarter ways is the area that captures his interest. Institute for the Future teamed up with Sun Microsystems and Boing Boing to create the Digital Open, an online tech expo for global youth. The competition welcomed entries in 8 categories: Open Code, Community, Discovery, Earth, Entrepreneurs, Gear, Media, and Play. More online: http://www.digitalopen.org
