A design of a special differential light amplifier has been designed to detect direct light and filter out the reflected light from the sky. The primary function is to orientate a solar collector to face the Sun, with AZIMUTHIAL tracking of 270 Deg and ALTITUDINAL 90 Deg .The concept is based on the idea of combining a signal indicating the direction of the sun rays, within one solid angle of “quarter hemisphere”, with a signal indicating, similarly quarterly, the relative angular displacement (or error) between the sun rays’ direction and the tracker’s orientation AZIMUTHIALLY. http://www.youtube.com/pstefanides#p/u/114/D2puwgq6r90

Primarily aimed at the domestic and SME market, Senical Ltd has designed a micro-generation unit with modular components allowing these components to be “swapped out” to maximize the usage of natural resources with minimum footprint. The main housing has an interchangeable top component which can be either a solar collection unit, a wood burning unit or a barbeque. The housing also hosts two removable vertical axis wind turbines and two internal sterling engines driven by the temperature differentials captured by the ground and top components. The unit also has its own internal power storage unit.
As a stand-alone unit, ...

A rotary wing rapidly deployable aerial wind turbine
This design is an inexpensive and rapidly deployable alternative to installation of wind turbines. Although wind energy is the least expensive of all the alternative energy sources, nonetheless the installations of wind turbines are inherently expensive (5-6 times more than conventional hydrocarbon powered generation facility) due to the wind turbines’ requirement for a massive foundations (nearly 3000 square feet in area and 6 feet deep of heavily reinforced concrete) and large supporting poles (20-30 stories tall). Also the ground based wind turbines are rated for 12.5 meters/sec (28 miles/hour) wind, since ...

The idea for this advanced baggage handling system was inspired by frequent travel made by the author.
Travelling with heavy baggage is a hectic experience. Most of the people who use air travel may know how difficult it is to bring all the baggage to check in at the airport and for families, it would be another level of disastrous experience to handle all the baggages throughout their journey.
How good it would be if you can check in all your baggage at home and travel to the airport with just your hand luggage or even without hand luggage. That is ...

The idea is to use as source of electrical energy an amplified force exerted over a small distance at one end of a lever generated by exerting a small force over a greater distance at the other end.
Initially, the motor that drives a flywheel with an attached lever via an axle is powered by an external power source. When the motor turns, the flywheel pulls the lever up and down. This up and down action at one end of the lever generates a greater force at the other end due to the short distance from the ...
Of a city’s total electricity consumption, more than 25% of the power is just consumed by the very basic need for air conditioning–to keep the temperature inside offices, homes,malls,shopping complexes,hypermarkets,cinema halls, factory complexes–at an ambient temperature for comfortable working, living and leisure.
MY INVENTION makes it possible to generate a self-perpetuating source of electrical power from an everyday appliance–the AIR CONDITIONER–a power-guzzler found in almost every household and every office and factory, in 80% of the parts of the world – and turn it into a POWER GENERATOR.
An air conditioner has 2 main components:
a) An electric fan ...

Aquaback is developing a highly efficient, low cost, low maintenance, compact, modular vapor compression distiller to be the water processing module in a wide variety of water processing systems to clean incoming water or reclaim waste water. The systems will enable recycling of most water for any use including potable water at a lower overall cost than any other technology or combinations of technologies, addressing water supply and disposal problems world wide. Distillation provides the highest purity water in a single operation but until now distillers have been too expensive to make or operate to be practical. Aquaback has ...

The Arachnid Vigor works by attracting and repelling alternating positive and negative magnetic poles. Thus causing the apparatus to rotate. As the machine rotates, the rod in the center of the apparatus will be equipped with a gearing mechanism located on the bottom of the rod, to match the gears of an attached electrical generator. Therefore creating an endless amount of energy to power homes and businesses. It would also supply power to space stations and rovers whereas solar energy will be limited.
The Arachnid Vigor will operate 100% pollution free so it’s environmentally friendly.
It will drastically reduce ...
AutoMicroFarm is like solar panels, but for your food.
What if you could grow 90% of the food essentials that your family needs--vegetables, fruits, fish, nuts, and beans--in an area the size of a two-car garage? What if that food kept you healthy and skinny? What if the time to maintain it took less than looking after your vegetable garden? What if the ongoing cost for this was 90% less than groceries cost you now? What if it paid for itself within two years?
This is the system we are working on, called AutoMicroFarm: an automated farm system that ...
We convert energy from waves into a potential energy ready for transportation or storage. Compressed air with which we can generate electricity. The by-products of our system are fresh water and cold air.
We have a design for a Simple Low Tech Rugged Portable Wave Energy Conversion Platform. The ocean is a very hostile environment, Salt water is highly corrosive. The engineering required to overcome these challenges for Wave Energy Electrical Generation requires a substantial investment the Undersea Transformers required and the Undersea Cable are also very expensive to engineer and install. Transformers require routine maintenance. Our approach is ...
