An innovator in high-performance, cost-efficient wind energy technology is SheerWind. Initial field-testing results have been announced which compares INVELOX commercial-grade wind energy generation with the same turbine on a traditional tower-mounted system.
Instabeat is a new device that attaches to your goggles and lets you track your performance using a Heads-up-display (HUD) when swimming. It can track heart rate, breathing pace, calories, laps and turns during your swimming session.
Lab demonstration of the group’s new lithium-polysulfide flow battery contained in a simple flask. The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University scientists have developed a relatively cheap, long-life “flow” battery that can be used to mitigate power fluctuations from solar and wind energy plants, therefore enabling them to become major suppliers [...]
in movies there are sound effects that make everything look and sound awesome. In the movies, we tend to experience something visual through our ears. When sound effects are added to visual content, it all becomes much more epic. Maybe that is why this wearable sound effects jacket was brought from idea to realization. [...]
Abod One billion people of the world’s population lives in informal communities – sometimes known as shantytowns, tent cities or, if you’re really going for the jugular, slums. Doug Sharp, president and chairman of BSB Design, came up with a tiny, inexpensive home for slum dwellers that can be built in less than one day by [...]
It’s important to move victims as little as possible after they have had an accident. A secondary injury could be worse than the first. Danny Lin, a student at Art Center College of Design, in California, has a new take on the classic stretcher. His Lenify design breaks into three pieces, allowing first responders to slide head, body [...]
If you need a power source when you are camping you might want to consider the PowerPot by Power Practical, winner of the Inventor of the Year Award at the 2012 DaVinci Inventor Showcase. The PowerPot turns heat into useful electricity. It will power lights so you can see what you’re cooking, recharge a cellphone, [...]
The DEV-50V lets you record what you’re looking at while you’re still looking at it through the lenses. A new pair of binoculars with digital technology has been unveiled by Sony. The binoculars will allow you to record whatever you view. This is a kind of digital device that may actually be an improvement on [...]
Freescale’s KL02 microcontroller. With the coming of the Internet of Things chips need to be more efficient, powerful—and even smaller than they are now. In all categories, Freescale Semiconductor is making waves. And their most recent contribution, the Kinetis KL02, is one of the smallest microcontrollers in the world.
