These new state of the art glasses simulate sunlight. They work by having an LED light reflect off a mirror and hit your face just over your eyes, to prevent getting blinded by the light and so you still have full vision. The purpose of this set of glasses is to reduce seasonal defective disorder and to increase sleep quality. These are better than sunlight lightbulbs for your lights due to that they have a constant focused area and that you can use them on the go. Their app makes it easy to use with instructions as well as a notification whenever the 20 allocated minutes of needed usage is over.

Daan Roosegaarde,a Rotterdam-based designer, hopes to turn every bicycle into a personal smog scrubber. 

Although it’s being proposed in China, this kind of innovation would be important in cities around the world, Roosegaarde says that many big cities are often coated in a toxic mix of water droplets and small particles emitted from construction or transportation turning into large amounts of this slick dust. Which is linked to a number of respiratory illnesses and even heart disease. Every year, air pollution like is linked to as many as 7 million deaths globally.

“Living in the city of Beijing is the equivalent of 17 or 18 cigarettes a day, without the pleasure of the nicotine.” Roosegaarde 

By offering Beijingers a smog-cleaning solution, he hopes to further encourage China’s return to biking and prove that the concept can work in other cities. “Basically for me, it’s about designing to improve life,” he says. “How can we use creative thinking and technology to improve the environment and live better?”

Though the smog-busting bike is only a concept at the moment, Roosegaarde believes he’s shown the impact of his eco-sensitive design before.

In the past Researchers have used a lower-intensity beam on small particles, which stripped away some electrons from the molecules iodine atoms but in a recent experiment a team used a high-intensity beam instead and the results came as a big shock. A single laser pulse stripped all but a few electrons in the molecule’s biggest atom from the inside out. Which created a void that pulled in electrons from the rest of the molecule very much like black hole in space that sucks in neighboring stars, but this was on a small scale.

The microscopic black hole didn’t live for long, though. Within 30 femtoseconds (which is 30 millionths of a billionth of a second) the molecule lost more than 50 electrons, and then exploded. With laser temperatures in the thousands of degrees, the molecule never was going to last much time.

U.S. and international scientists have both used powerful X-ray laser beams to attempt to image individual biological objects at high resolution. They’re also conducting experiments to see how matter behaves under extreme conditions and to increase their understanding of the charge dynamics of complex molecules.
