PaintCan is a product similar to many types of standalone machine interface designed to streamline the process of selecting and purchasing paint in large home DIY stores. PaintCan allows users to customize the paint selection process without overloading service representative desks in paint departments.

PaintCan offers a touchscreen interface capable of scanning and analyzing paint samples from in-store displays or photographs brought in by the customer. After analysis the interface allows the customer to modify the color they have chosen as they see fit (including brightness and saturation calibration). Once the customer is satisfied with their choice they are able to select the type of paint (ie. indoor/outdoor, gloss level and size). The customer is then ...

As a computer person, I am inundated with various passwords and userids that I need to keep. I hate paper, so the best I can do is keep the password on a document. I don’t like to store the document on the cloud, because I am afraid someone will hack in and steal the document.
I am sure, I am not the only one, because I know lots of non-technical people who have the same issue. Every website that we login to, requires a userid and password.
I have done some research and found paper versions, but no electronic versions.

The Plant Air Purifier is a new air cleaning appliance that utilizes the recently discovered air-cleaning capacity of root-associated microbes living synergistically with common houseplants to trap and consume toxins in the air. The research behind this was done By B. C. Wolverton while working in NASA’s space program. “Low levels of chemicals such as carbon monoxide and formaldehyde can be removed from indoor environments by plant leaves alone, while higher concentrations of numerous toxic chemicals can be removed by filtering indoor air though the plant roots surrounded by activated carbon. The activated carbon absorbs large quantities of the toxic chemicals and retains them until the plant roots and associated microorganisms degrade and assimilate these chemicals. (“Foliage Plants for ...

If there's one thing on Earth man has sought after-since the dawn of time, it is the most comfortable shoe-comfort! Or best support for their feet, for extended walking comfort and support. Not since now, has man been ultimately surprised to find, at his feet!

The 'Polly-Wogg' Chambered-Air cushion shoe! Oh, there's been attempts to support the bodily-weight in shoes; but, now we have the 'Polly Wogg' shoe design. With its two chambered-air compression soled shoe. Simply speaking this is very self-explanatory when looking at the ultimate design of the sole itself. The diagram enclosed will speak for itself. I might add, that:

"The design works basically, on the premise, that the shifting of the weight of one's body, ...

I had a motorcycle wreck early in the morning as I was on my way to work. I went off the road as a result of the oncoming car failing to "DIM THEIR LIGHTS!" The morning was dark, cold and wet due to an earlier rain shower. I went off the road and over an embankment, I took out a speed limit sign and was thrown 16 ft. into a small stream. My bike was totaled,it was pitch black and I survived. The problem was, that oncoming cars that came by me "never saw me!" I sat in the dark and called my brother and upon arrival to the site, he could not ...

Desert coolers are widely used for cooling rooms in hot countries like India. Conventional coolers have a water tank at the bottom. Water is pumped to the top of the cooler which is allowed to fall on the three walls of the cooler body, the fourth wall having a fan. The fan sucks air through three water wetted walls and blows out. This air is cooler than that of surrounding one.

Water pump remains on to pump the water upward. This consumes power as the pump runs continuously. Power can be saved if on time of pump is reduced. This is done by adding an additional water tank at the top of the cooler body. Water, from existing bottom ...

Power saving is the biggest challenge of today's appliances viz TVs, Laptops, Tablets and Smart Phones etc, both by AC and DC battery sources. I shall consider only the TV, while the technique could as well be adopted for rest of the appliances. TVs consume 3 to 8% of global electricity. Tougher regulations continue to reduce the maximum power that a new TV can consume, e.g. the current maximum for any size screen is 85 Watt by Energy Star.

Consumption can be brought down considerably by advance techniques viz LED backlighting. Since LED backlighting power ranges from 30% to 70% of overall system power in LCD TVs, improvements in the efficiency of the backlighting power circuit can make a ...
