Recycling is evolving all the time but with new research scientist have designed a battery made with old glass bottles. The scientists at UC riverside created nano silicon anodes which is a vital part of the battery which provides and stores more energy than a regular battery. This battery can store up to 4 times its original capacity once combined with a lithium Ion battery. And this will reduce the billions of bottles getting dumped into landfills. Making one mans waste into another mans super battery.
The aim of VR has always been to make the digital world as real as possible. Normally this is done by higher graphics and a more ergonomic controller, but now a team at the Hasso Plattner Institut in Germany has added a whole new variable
This piece of equipment allows you to feel inside the VR world hooking onto your arm and hand sending electric currents which can stop your movement when it passes a certain point like a wall. It also can give you mild electric shocks if you accidentally electrocute yourself in the game. This doohickey can even simulate strain on you arms if you ever try to pick up a heavy object and give you mild residence in the process of pushing a button or pulling a leaver. This will start off as a gaming software, but the technology can be applied, in the future, to making virtual gyms where you actually build muscle, social meeting points to chill with your friends or even give a love one a hug now and then. As soon as we can add a sense of smell and taste to Virtual Reality, it will become truly no diffrent to real life.
This innovative suit made by Suit X can make manual labour over sixty percent easier. It is composed of three main sections: Shoulder X, Back X, Leg X. Add an Arm X, and a load of guns your practically Iron man. The leading function of these new and exiting suits is to help manual labourers do their job faster whilst bearing less damage to their body. The suit can also be used in military practice, fire safety departments and the police force so they can have extra strength in times of urgency. The same life saving company designed a suit to help the disabled called Phoeni X which can give legless people an opportunity to work.
This new technology can turn sunlight into a liquid which later can be released into heat energy.
Many consider the sun the energy source of the future. But one challenge is that it is difficult to store solar energy and deliver the energy without using large expensive batteries
A research team from Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, has shown that it is possible to convert the solar energy directly into energy stored in the bonds of a chemical fluid. The liquid chemical makes it possible to store and transport the stored solar energy and release it on demand. The process is based on the natural compound norbornadiene that upon exposure to light converts into quadricyclane.
‘The technique means that that we can store the solar energy in chemical bonds and release the energy as heat whenever we need it.’ says Professor Kasper Moth-Poulsen. ‘Combining the chemical energy storage with water heating solar panels enables a conversion of more than 80 percent of the incoming sunlight.’
The research project was initiated at Chalmers over 6 years ago and the research team contributed in to a first conceptual demonstration. At the time, the solar energy conversion efficiency was 0.01 percent and the expensive element ruthenium played a major role in the compound. Now, four years later, the system stores 1.1 percent of the incoming sunlight as chemical energy. An improvement of a factor of 100. Also, ruthenium has been replaced by much cheaper carbon-based elements.
Don’t you hate it when it takes years for those builders to build something as simple as a pool. Well now this won’t be a be a problem. Australian-based construction company, Fastback Robotics has created a prototype that can print a brick house from the ground up in just two days. ‘Hadrian X’ is due to be released commercially by the end of 2017. It moves bricks up its arm while applying perfect coating of glue. Once it reaches the arm the robot places the brick seamlessly (without messy cement) like lego bricks. This mobile device has taken the internet at storm with its amazing, mesmerising, mathematical and practical building skills. Is this the future of building or is it just another job disappearing again.
