For many visually impaired people, a cane or a stick is a close friend helping them to detect and avoid obstacles in the walking path. During walking with the cane going from place to place, they sense and guess directions and locations by hearing sounds surrounding, sniffing smells in the air, feeling touches on skin, counting footsteps as they walk, and memorizing events in time and space. However, it is difficult for them to guess where they are when the surrounding environment are new or changed, or when they get lost memory of locations.

The important writing method of blind people is to emboss Braille dots on paper with slate and stylus, and the result can be read by ...

The self cleaning drain system provides the features of conventional P-traps used with sinks and lavatories, but creates flow turbulence to break down and propel debris away. The system provides a permanent way to eliminate drain clogs, eliminating the need for chemical drain cleaners, plungers, expensive pipe repairs and environmental concerns.

Key Features:

1. Eliminate the need for chemical drain cleaners, plungers and pipe repairs.

2. Universal design that fits standard drains and superior to conventional P-traps.

3. It is designed to be self-cleaning and not needed to open the drain.

4. Has a shape that generates water turbulence that will clean the pipe, break down and flush unwanted debris.

5. A drain system with a green design, works ...

The essential need for life-support is electrical power, water and oxygen supply, processed from the soil around. While we easily can generate heat in several ways, the cooling of it is quite a different story. No problem on Earth to water and air, but Mars has no liquids on its surface, while the cooling capacity of its indeed very cold but also very thin atmospheric air is around 75 times lower per unit of air volume, than Earth's. This means that a cooling system on Mars must be 75 times larger than an equivalent one on Earth. For the very low powers that the robots presently on Mars dissipate, we still can cope with this, but not for the ...

In recent years, it has been our interest to find an unconventional and renewable energy resources to replace the conventional ones. Wave energy is one of such unconventional resources from where we can have a huge a huge amount of energy. But extracting the energy from waves is not an easy task because of problems in designing a system which can withstand the very rough weather at sea as well as can produce a reasonable amount of energy or power from waves.

My floating wave power generating system works better in those conditions. It is a system that floats on sea like a ship and is anchored very well to the base of the sea so that it ...

Why?

The existing methods of electric power generation are not enough to meet the increasing demand of electricity. Most of the methods of power generation are either expensive or cause environmental hazards. This led us to think about low cost green technology for electric energy creation.

How does it work?

The high pressure water in the ocean waves is guided into a unidirectional check valve after filtering. This unidirectional check valve opens due to the relative high pressure in the wave crest and it guides the water into an onshore reservoir as shown in the illustration. During wave trough the relative decrease in water pressure closes the check valve and a large amount of sea water is trapped in ...

Magnesium is one of the most abundant elements on the Earth. Once made into an alloy, its applications can be just as numerous. From automobile parts to handheld device enclosures, magnesium can be an essential component to many of the products we use on a daily basis. Compared to aluminum and steel, automotive parts made with magnesium alloys are lighter, burn less fuel, and ultimately release less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

Unfortunately, the current methods for extracting magnesium require high energy consumption. There are two main methods used for extracting magnesium. As shown in Figure 1, both methods require a high reduction temperature and a large amount of energy. In terms of waste production, one of the methods ...

Micro-coil springs provide flexible electrical interconnections and allow significant movement in the x, y, and z axes to counteract the thermal expansion and dynamic forces between a microcircuit and a printed circuit board. Micro-coil springs are able to withstand harsh thermal and vibration environments significantly better than the current state of the art (see table below for performance comparisons).

NASA Value: Marshall engineers have developed a novel interconnection structure for the integrated circuit packages used in aerospace avionic designs. Micro-coil springs (MCS) replace ball or column grid arrays (BGA/CGA), preventing connection breaks due to thermal and vibration stresses.

Partnership Mechanism: Four months after approaching Topline Corporation at the APEX Expo, NASA Marshall signed an exclusive license agreement with the ...

This novel electricity generator is capable of supplying all our power requirements, thus solving one of the earth's critical needs.

An electricity generator of this invention functions using known electromagnetic principles that simply have not been applied previously. They do not function in the manner of all current-art electricity generators, which move wires through a magnetic field to generate electricity, and require an external source of energy to power that movement. Whereas the velocity of that physical movement in current-art generators is inherently limited and subject to other restrictions, there is no practical limit to the frequency of the inducing current (and therefore the output) of the herein-described electricity generator.

A generator of the disclosed invention generates alternately propagating ...
