A problem of longstanding is availability of potable water and edible foodstuffs during/after natural disasters,e.g., floods, hurricanes, snow storms, etc. The instant invention, titled, "Aqueous-driven Instant Foods, Baby Formula, Flavor Enhancement and Manufacture Method Thereof" uses a unique, NASA-assisted microencapsulation technology first used aboard STS 41 and later aboard STS 43, that enables microencapsulation and production of edible microcapsules that may contain liquids, water, for example, gasses or other substances sought to be preserved for later delivery/use.

In this instance the liquid is potable water which has been microencapsulated in a robust, edible substance forming a protective shell that protects the water inside the capsule from being contaminated. The encapsulated water droplets are then combined with instant foodstuffs, e.g., ...

This invention refers to a Flashlight and a Holster being a system that senses the conditions of use for the Flashlight and regulates the lighting modes in which such Flashlight will turn on.

The system comprises a Holster with two Magnets located inside and a Flashlight with a Coil and a circuitry that senses the Flashlight movement through the Holster. Circuit built inside the Flashlight measures both the intensity and the direction of the induced magnetic field produced by the Magnets when the Flashlight moves through the Holster, and activates an electronic switch in a previously selected lighting mode. The result is a Flashlight that turn on in the desired mode only by varying the speed and/or the direction ...

The infrared (IR) toggle switch project described here aims to provide a control mechanism for electrical appliances that do not have remote operation features. The goal is to construct a black box where you can plug-in your 120V AC appliance and control ON and OFF operations with any modern IR remote control devices.

Modern IR remote controls generate a modulated pulse train of 38KHz frequency when any key on the remote is pressed. With the use of capacitive filtering we will convert the stream of pulses into one pulse regardless of the key entered. This way, we will be able to toggle a relay switch with any key pressed on the remote. This project has been tested with varieties ...

Reading laptop screens outside or on bright days can be difficult because the backlights can't compete with the brightness of daylight. So why not use that daylight to your advantage?

My invention uses a cylindrical lens to take the light coming down from above and focuses it into the backlight plate. Therefore, you have extreme brightness to make the graphics on your monitor ...

Like most people, when I bought a laptop I eagerly looked forward to using it outside. One quickly discovers that most laptops screens
are not up to the bright ambient light. With many others I began to investigate ways to get around this, quickly discovering that this was not easy. Everything was tried from a glare reducing film on a plastic screen to building a black box in which to insert the laptop. None of these provided an enjoyable experience. Online the offerings appeared similar to what I had been looking at. See attachment "A"

After experimenting I discovered that the most important feature appeared to be providing a barrier with sufficient height. This turned out to be about ...

An object of the invention is to provide an apparatus and method for accurately and easily guiding a vehicle into a garage to a predetermined location.

A further object of the invention is to combine reliable ?State-of-the-art? compact diode laser technology with a mounting provision that is simple to install, adjust and utilize for parking a vehicle.

A further object of the invention is to provide an improved method for guiding a vehicle using highly visible linear lines which enable the driver to adjust the vehicle side to side prior to stopping at a precise location.

The invention includes an apparatus and method and an article of manufacture for guiding a vehicle precisely into a predetermined ...

As many people by now realize, the traditional Edison 100W incandescent lamp (known as an "A19") is now no longer in production due to its low energy efficiency. Compact fluorescent "spirals" are generally considered the alternative, but they have some significant negative points, such as being slow to warm-up, having poor light output in cold weather and containing environmentally unfriendly mercury. LED technology can be competitive, delivering long-life (over 25,000 hours), high efficiency and environmental responsibility, if it can generate enough light to be "equivalent" to people's expectations without overheating.

LEDs are semiconductor devices and although they are capable of efficiencies approaching 50%, they don't handle temperature very well. Although a tungsten filament is perfectly suited to glow ...

The invention concerns an electrodynamic loudspeaker driver for the reproduction of low frequencies in mid air, dust, gas or liquid.

It consists of a hollow membrane (1) whose faces (1a and b) are spaced apart and joined by a spacer (2) through the internal engine (4, 5, 6, 7, 8) inserted in a housing (11). The membrane is actuated by a coil (4), operating in the air gap (8), whose support (3) placed next to it. The mobile assembly (1, 2, 3, 4) is attached to the housing (11) by a centering (9) and by a double suspension device (10 a and b).

The device of the invention is particularly intended to be used for low frequency ...

Lum-EN is the first portable device able to harvest solar energy and deliver electrical energy on-demand employing organic luminescent solar concentrators (OLSCs). Thanks to this technology, high light-to-electricity efficiencies can be attained with little use of conventional solar cells.

Typical OLSCs consist of a luminescent organic dye dissolved into an inexpensive transparent matrix material such as poly(methylmethacrylate). The luminescent species absorb the incident solar light and isotropically re-emit it at a longer wavelength. A large part of the emitted photons is trapped in the OLSC plate by total internal reflection and wave-guided towards the edges, where solar cells are placed. Ideally, the emission spectrum of the luminescent species matches with the absorption spectrum of the solar cell so ...

Neutek USA announces all new "Best-In-Class" MagLUX™ SLM1-K7 24" LED Magnetic Task Lighting. MagLUX™ more universally known as ThinLUX™ is designed especially for most common steel cabinets, boxes, enclosures and shelving (e.g. Modular Metal Office Furniture). It's USA manufactured design fully replaces a typical OEM 15+ lb heavy steel fluorescent fixture costing hundreds more. Since it is magnetic and not reliant on custom fit per fixture, one size often is usable across many platforms. Understanding the longevity of an LED design, this universal fit can be re-applied over and over when a business changes furniture or layout.

Better, brighter, and saves over $80k in annually ( typ.1000 unit office building). Best-in-class low profile high output long life scratch resistant ...
