Pen technology has matured enough to date with more improved ink-delivery systems to write more comfortably. Yet, no pen on earth can capture the handwritten characters on paper and convert them to digital format. One commercial product named LiveScribe is available on the market which could capture drawing or writing on 'special papers' to upload the sketch as it is on the cloud. But it lacks conversion of the text in digital format and generalized paper writing support.
'DigiPen' solves the problem efficiently and elegantly. It brings a new concept of smart input device without replacing traditional paper writing. ...

Safe drinking water is the main scarcity after any disaster – whether natural or manmade. In many situations surface water is available but is contaminated with harmful diarrhoeal germs of diseases like cholera, typhoid, paratyphoid, dysentery, etc. If the water is not contaminated by industrial wastes and insecticides, and if it is not saline (a problem only in coastal areas), destruction of diarrheal pathogens can render the water drinkable. For this, one needs to raise the water temperature to 60degC and maintain it for 30 minutes, the process being called Pasteurisation. At higher temperatures, the time required goes down ...

The Hitchnic Table is the first ultra-portable picnic table that takes up no room in your vehicle and provides extra storage space functioning as a cargo rack. The goal with this project was to make the outdoors more accessible, and to make eating outside, a lot more comfortable. In today's culture, many activities revolve around food and eating. This is true whether you are tailgating, camping, or just enjoying a picnic with family and friends. Currently you have a few options, none of which are terribly convenient. First, you can spread out a blanket. This certainly has its place ...

Capable of encoding massive amounts of data into a package more than 1,000 times smaller than with standard compression, this technology is poised to revolutionize the use of digital terrain maps (DTMs) in restricted environments (e.g., tablets, smart phones, embedded systems).
Developed at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center, this software system integrates innovative encoding and decoding algorithms to provide (1) a 5,000:1 compression ratio and (2) rapid/continuous decompression in constrained computing situations. It enables users to access and create customized DTMs from a variety of data sources using a single, easy-to-use graphical user interface.
To fully understand the significance of ...

Every hospital's worst bane is multi-drug resistant microbes and especially Staphylococcus Aureus. They claim to have no practical, effective means of eradicating these microbes.
This souped-up system will do it easily. “100% effective” needs to be qualified. All microbes in a given treatment area will be destroyed, without exception. However, people enter and leave hospitals 24/7, carrying and spreading microbes. Therefore, pathogens newly released after a given ward is sterilised, inherit new microbe populations. This cannot be prevented. Nevertheless, the hospital's level of microbe infestation will be reduced by more than 99.9% and take some time to return to previous ...
According to eHealth, 550 million people have vision problems in India, 80% of whom could be treated if the problems can be identified at the early stage.
Slit lamp is a medical device which is used for the diagnosis the eye related problems like:
- Clouding of the lens (cataracts)
- Injury to the clear tissue (cornea) that covers the front of the eye
- Dry eye syndrome
- Loss of sharp vision due to macular degeneration
- Separation of the light-sensitive membrane (retina) in the back of the eye from its supporting layers (retinal detachment)

Key component for Fusion Deposition Modelling (FDM) printers is the nozzle.
Diameter of the nozzle is a compromise between deposition rate and printing resolution. Large nozzle improves deposition rate, while high resolution requires small nozzle size.
Another critical issue is the surplus of material that keeps flowing out of the nozzle at the end of each deposition. Normally, a negative pressure is applied in the chamber to suck back the melted material. This leads to cavitation in the material, possible damages at the nozzle and generations of bubbles that are found in the further deposition.
