Window film could even out the indoor temperature using solar energy | Chalmers
Neat trick is it's yellow when the sun isn't shining, but clears up when it is shining, then goes yellow again while reradiating stored heat

Novel ecosustainable peat and oil shale ash-based 3D-printable composite material - ScienceDirect
Using milled peat and oil shale ash to make cheap 3D printed bricks. The oil shale ash has high pH, making it work well as a binder. Though the bricks take a day to harden up though...

Enhancing Mechanical Properties of Pervious Concrete Using Carbon Fiber Composite Reinforcement | Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering | Vol 30, No 3
permeable concrete normally sucks, but throwing ground up waste carbon fiber into it makes it strong enough for actual usage, particularly for road/ground cover where you want rain water to pass though into the ground reasonably quickly, rather than collecting pollution then ending up in storm sewers..

Using the whole house/roof as a sun tracker is kinda interesting, when the interior walls are exposed to exterior lighting in the daytime, but sealing up at night for better insulation?

Automist Smartscan fire sprinkler: water mist fire suppression
Hrm, I can buy the target application using less water to reduce water damage, but this is an active system rather than a traditional passiv eprinkler system. No power, no mist?

Masonry from industrial waste
Interesting ambient temperature curing bricks, using boiler ash and alkali chemical curing. Regular brick manufacturing uses 1000C kilns, which use a lot of energy/fuel.

Turning billboards into homeless housing. For people who don't want a lot of windows (or prefer skylights), this actually isn't a terrible design on it's own. As a homeless rehousing concept, shifting them to the highway seems like trying to hide the problem more, along with poor access.

Empa - Shape Memory Alloys - A shape-conscious alloy
Low temp iron based SMA's make SMA reinforced prestressed concrete beams practical, which can be prestressed without elaborate tensioning systems. The only issue is the 160 degree transition temperature means if such a beam ever got exposed to a vehicle fire, it might fail faster than conventional prestressed concrete using steel rebar...
