Modern high-efficiency light bulbs such as compact fluorescents and Light Emitting Diode (LED) bulbs look very different from conventional, vintage, or antique incandescents. However, sometimes, the appearance of an incandescent bulb, with its glowing filament is highly desirable. Reproduction incandescent bulbs are still made and have a growing market (NYTimes, 6/7/10 ) despite consuming electricity extremely inefficiently, and contrary to bans being implemented and considered in many countries.
This invention is a means to make highly efficient, long life bulbs that can have the look of any vintage filament-type bulb, along with entirely novel light emitting shapes and colors.
This new bulb contains of one or more LEDs directing light through one or more light guides of ...

This invention addresses the $ 1 Billion USD annual storm water back up damage to finished basements and below grade construction that occurs during power outages when the AC pump cannot operate and DC battery back up pumps are unable to operate for long durations (usually 1-3 hours of pumping on battery power). Even during harsh storm conditions, however, municipal water supplies continue to flow through pipes separate from those that drain storm water . This invention makes use of the power available from a continuous 30-50psig water supply pressure to run a sump pump that can produce approximately 17-29 feet of head -- more than the 10-12 feet required in most basement applications. The typical 5-6 gallon-per-minute flow ...

This is a high end audio system intended as a jukebox system but capable of being the central computer for a mobile life. It has stereo sound with 15 watts per channel in a sealed cabinet design. The screen is 9" and is a touch screen which is what's used for most functions. it has 2 USB ports in front as well as an SD card slot so that any SUB devices can be plugged in and it will function like any other computer. The software is based off Logiitech Squeezebox server and Squeezeplayer but can also utilize iTunes or any other media software. The buttons are intended as presets/shortcuts to favorite radio stations or programs. A joystick is ...

This is a laptop.

Getting into more detail, this is a mockup of a personal device or laptop that is designed with the general idea of suiting to each person's different wants and needs. By looking at the success of many products like the iPhone, how I see the trend of Apple's profitability and popularity of its mobile phone is its customizability and personizability. Instead of having standard applications, users are allowed to have their choice of whatever they want. This mock up is based on this principal idea. However, instead of software, this is hardware that's customizable. You are looking at multiple configurations of different aspects of hardware. What comes to mind right now is different keyboard configs, a ...

Problem Description

Safety and economical fuel consumption are the two biggest challenges faced by the automobile industry. On individual capacity a vehicle owner will want a system that can reduce the fuel consumption and enhance the safety factors.

Fuel efficiency greatly depends upon the driving techniques that in turn depend upon the operating conditions of the machine. It is beyond human capacity to consider all the variables and make effective decisions. The restrictions of human capacity and random variables involved greatly supports the requirement of an intelligent system that can make calculated decisions.

Innovation, Design & Novelty (How this system will work)

An intelligent system that can consider involved factors can override manual driving techniques ...

There are two main types of incubators in common use today: Still Air and Forced Air Incubators. Both incubate eggs in an enclosed environment such as a styrofoam cooler, carefully controlling heat and humidity. Forced Air incubators are similar to Still Air incubators except they use a fan to keep the temperature uniform. Still Air incubators use radiative heat to keep the eggs warm. Forced Air incubators use convective heating. Both use evaporated water to control humidity.

Mother ducks (and chickens) incubate through contact incubation. A mother duck's internal temperature is 106.5 degrees F. As she sits on the eggs and covers them with her feathers, the eggs stay warm. When she goes for a swim, she returns still ...

The product line consists of power tool carrying/storage cases with integral features which quickly convert the portable power tools to the functioal equivalent of bench mounted power tools. The enhanced cases quickly mount and clamp to a portable tool cart which provides a transportable, stable, ergonomic work structure.

The first illustration depicts a portable drill which is quickly converted to a drill press. The drill is slipped into and clamped to a slide adapter which engages the slide rails integral to the end of the carrying case. The slide adapter has a gear rack which engages a gear mounted to the case. The gear is rotated by a removeable drive handle which causes the drill to advance or retract ...

The In Wall iPhone Media Station or iWIMS, has embraced the iPhone generation and provides an effective and attractive alternative to iPhone docks in Home, Work, and Travel environments. iWIMS is a flush wall mount iPhone/iPod dock that provides recharging capabilities, playback capabilities and line level outputs for whole house music system integration all while still being able to control the iPhone wirelessly. The iWIMS is offered in two variants, variant-1, the In Wall iPhone Media Station with Projection or iWIMS-WP, will consist of an 80-Watt amplifier and sterio speakers. Variant-2, the In Wall iPhone Media Station without Projection or iWIMS-WOP, will not have an audio projection system but provide line-level outputs.

Virtually everyone has had the experience of placing a pot of water onto the heating element of a kitchen range, turning the selector to "Max" and then walking to the other room while making a mental note to return "in a few minutes" to remove the boiling pot from the element. Everyone knows what usually happens next....You get immersed in paperwork and forget about the boiling pot. By the time you run back into the kitchen in a panic, the pot has almost boiled dry and you have to start again from scratch. Sometimes, if you don't make it back in time, the pot boils dry and you are then faced with a situation that could pose a serious ...

Most of the small flashlights available on the market produce a focused beam of light suitable of pointing it in one direction and illuminating very small area. While camping or working in dark places like basement or attic it is more beneficial to have portable ambient light source.
This new idea provides a soft glowing light by reflecting beam of a build in LED lamp on to the translucent skin of its inflated balloon. The balloon in this proposal is in a shape of a table lamp suitable for use while i.e. cooking outdoors. It provides an ambient light instead of focused beam. Because the top of the shade does not allow the light through it is not blinding ...
