If people are in a place without possibility to recharge mobile phone battery, this mechanical charger can help. The charger is built into a pencil. It consists of linear alternator, rectifier, capacitor, constant current source and LED. It can be used as pocked lamp if LED is switched on. The linear alternator is shown in figure 1. The other parts are common so there is no need to describe them.
Stator is made of coils 1 in magnetic circuits 2 , moving part
consists of permanent magnets with pole extensions.
The moving part is connected by spring to ...

The cooking pots that we use now have flat bottoms. These pots absorb certain amount of heat energy from the heat source from the bottom. This heat in turn is conducted to the water in the pot. This takes a certain amount of time to boil the water.
Change the flat bottom of the pot to a corrugated bottom as shown. This will increase the surface area exposed to the heat source. This will increase the amount of heat absorbed by the same heat source. Also the corrugated bottom will increase the surface area that transfers the heat to the ...
Pup-Pen was created primarily to enhance the process of social assimilation of a new puppy with its human family and into the home environment.
Pup-Pen primarily achieves this with its unique upward moving flexible gate that allows the owner to adjust the gate’s height, as needed, so it will safely contain the puppy as it continues to grow, yet allow the puppy to have uninhibited visual access to activities around it. This feature is also valuable for protecting furniture and other household items during the puppy’s teething process. The gate also provides quick and easy human access to the ...
The eyePad Stand is a tool, which provides hands-free, touch-screen interaction with an iPad. The non-skid base pad in conjunction with the base cone/pole stem process delivers balance and stability. Whether a finger touches in the middle of the iPad or on its corner, interaction continues with little or no readjustment of the tablet position. Yet, when the moment calls for ease of movement, the tilt, swivel, and portrait/landscape features follow one’s intuitive movement fluidly.
The design focuses on facilitating the use of the iPad ergonomically so the user immediately becomes fully engaged with the iPad. Continuous manual holding ...
The idea is cleaning an entire house in 5 minutes without manpower.
Consists of surface cleaning liquid, one emitter, and 4 collectors. To clean a room the emitter is placed nearby the center of the room. The emitter will provide us the electromagnetic force for the motion of the material. Then the collectors are placed on 4 edges of the room nearby the walls. These collectors have a kind of structure which attract the liquid and collect all the liquid inside it. The nano ionic cleaning particles are poured in the emitter. After this procedure the system starts working. ...
Picture yourself skiing down a slope with wind chill 30 below or 100 feet below the surface of the ocean in SCUBA gear with a lighted 3" digital display fused into the material of your sleeve showing your speed of descent, caller ID from your I-Phone, time, or your depth and air supply impervious to water, chemical, temperature, or impact hazards. This invention addresses these issues and offers so much more for a number of consumer products.
Employing PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) and high speed sequencing of low voltage (3VDC typical @ 5 ma.) from a tiny conformal coated ...

Floor Surface Safety Lamp
Walking and stumbling in the dark bedroom at night is a major cause of accidents in the home. Stepping on the dog, the child’s toy, forgotten shoes, or slipping on a slippery surface will tumble both the old and the young. That’s what nightlights are for but the plug-in nightlight lights illuminate one side of the bed and is a big flare of light on the wall.
The Floor Surface Lamp patented under the bed nightlight solves this problem by lighting the floor of the entire bedroom while keeping the bedroom dark. Now there is ...

The insertion of garment hangers through narrow neck holes is a problem which is relevant in an industrial context, at clothing retail and in the household. Hangers must be repeatedly inserted or removed through the lower ends of garments or a button or two must be opened and closed.
The prior art addressing this issue, documented in about 200 US patents alone, is largely distinguished by technical complexity, often involving the use of cogs, levers, springs and other intricacies, which makes these solutions so unpractical and uneconomical that the problem persists unresolved.
The present proposal, called ...

Instant Cooling (Fast Freeze) & Instant Heating (Microwave) in one convenient attractive embodiment as a small home appliance. Insert a wine bottle, soda/beer cans and press a button. Cools in 3 minutes or less from room to refrigerated temperature. For different variety of wines different temperature settings can be done. Saves plenty of energy. Reason? When we drink a cold can of beer or soda, we need the cold temperature for the duration of consumption. Then there is no need to 'maintain' the cool temperature for days and weeks in keeping them in the refrigerator. The compressor has to ...
Proper dental care is very important to an individual's overall health and general well-being. Additionally, proper brushing can significantly reduce the expense and discomfort of dental restorations, cleanings, and examinations - which is why there are now many mechanical aids available for cleaning teeth. In general these are variations on the classic toothbrush with the addition of reciprocating or vibrating bristles, which aid in the removal of food particles and bacterial plaque which are lodged between or adhered to the teeth. These devices universally come with removable and interchangeable heads to allow the user to replace worn bristles and ...
