3D Printing technology is expected to revolutionize each and every manufacturing industry within the next 2 decades. With this 3D Printer specializing in 3D printing of Braille characters on any kind of plastic packaging of common consumer products regardless the extent of existing surface curvature, our team is targeting an important necessity which is currently missing in the US and many other countries for the visually impaired members of the society. Under the supervision of Dr. Tanil Ozkan (TAMU-Mechanical Engineering, 3D Printing Innovation and Decentralized Manufacturing Laboratory) students and technologists participating in this project developed a dedicated 3D printer and formulated a specialized filament material with enhanced adhesion characteristics compatible with every kind of polymeric surface on the packaging ...

This is a small and lightweight device that can be worn on the ear or on glasses (recommended) and is designed to measure accurate cardiovascular information through the superficial temporal artery near the ears. The measurable information includes blood pressure, heart rate, blood oxygen saturation level and pulse waveform. Accurate measurement of this information can not only help people understand and monitor their health conditions, but also enable some remote disease prediction and diagnosis such as hypertension, heart failure, type I diabetes, etc.

Compared to current commercialized wearable/smart devices, like FitBit or iWatch, our device can support many beneficial healthcare functions they don’t and can’t. Most current wearable devices are worn on wrist. It is well-known that wrist is the ...

Noise is not just a matter of comfort, but also a matter of health! Especially in industrialized regions, noise pollution was often an underestimated factor regarding its physical effects on human beings.

We developed the prototype of a sound insulation window with fully integrated innovative lowcost loudspeakers that solve the remaining problems of state-of-the-art windows. The prototype window has a better sound insulation than conventional double- and triple-glazed windows.

Background:
Traditional double- and triple-glazed windows have a lack of performance in sound insulation, especially in the frequency range below 200 Hz. Near airports or busy streets especially these frequencies have to be considered. Using laminated glass improves only slightly the low frequency behavior. Real improvements typically with an increased ...

As those who have had the opportunity to carry a hammer in a tool belt can relate, one of the more striking (no pun intended, well yes) issues that happens is the bashing of the hammer handle into the back of the thigh, knee or shin (depending on height) when the tool is placed into the hammer holder on the tool belt. While there are solutions such as placing in a side mounted holder, these all come with drawbacks.

The solution that rises to the top is that of a hammer that has a quickly adjustable handle that can go from a compact non-beating-you-in-the-back-of-the-leg variety to one of not just setting a nail in one single blow but sending ...

Creating lifelike 3D volumetric images is of paramount importance to maximize realism for displays. In order to create a lifelike 3D volumetric image I have successfully developed a new concept after spending several years to research. The concept is described below. The development of my 3D Display refers to the well-known swept-volume technique, which is characterized by its comparatively simple system configuration. Compared to other approaches the new 3d display is a compact, light, and easy to transport system of modular design. As it consists of standard components, the display is also inexpensive and easy to maintain.

This is a new 3D volumetric display with clear picture and super clear depth; it has a 360 degree horizontal and 270 ...

This is an Air Cooler device that can use instead of air conditioner in cars, transportation bus and house. This is cheaper than using A/C in the home because of less energy consumption and more effective than the common coolers in the market today and autos means also less gas consumtion and motor wear.

It consists of getting get air flow through a tank where is a capsule with dry ice (CO2) pellets that get cooled the air around it, then the fresh air flow out and can be conducted by a duct or hose to the ...

The car has been one of the most important parts of the human life. We have multiple uses for it. We go for drives we required speed; we go for trip with family we require a lot space; we go shopping we require space to put in all things; we go for adventure and no hotels around, we want it to accommodate us and be relaxing.

So for all uses we required different configuration of car spaces, and sometimes it becomes hard to meet those requirements, then it become headache.

Don't panic...
We are introducing an air seats. Configure your car space accordingly your requirement easily. Seats perform a vital role weather it's a case of user comfort or ...

The proposed design is intended to improve the health of the user, in particular their spine alignment during daily activities. Sizable amounts of resources are used to avoid ergonomically induced injuries and this device will help track the user’s spine alignment and give real-time feedback, allowing an immediate response by the user and promoting a self-correcting attitude towards posture whether is at work, sitting on an airplane or while conducting any other routine activity that we repeat over and over every day.

In order to form an image of the human spine, an array of ultra-sonic transducers are used. These transducers are fixed to the skin at the points of the bone structure where alignment information can ...

AMAZON is an artwork inspired by the goddess of the moon. The speakers are protected by a moulded mask permeable to the sound. Its canonical face is universal in all civilizations around the world while its silkscreen printing can adapt that mask to different countries and cultures.

That creation is particularly suitable to prestigious residences, in accord with the “Woman Acceptance Factor,” or with the “FENG SHUI." In addition the musical qualities are superb.

AMAZON has a two-way device which delivers a power of 100 W RMS. Dimensions: 525x300x300mm. 3.200 kg. The body is made of moulded wood and the front face in massive wood. That creation is destined to wireless acoustic systems.

The problem that we want to solve is to avoid the fulfillment of thefts in private homes using an active anti-theft system. The idea is that of a system which, by continually monitoring the internal domestic environment, is able to detect the presence of one or more extraneous and perform, after notification prerecorded, a dissuasive action against them using a quadcopter robot-type.

The deterrent action may be different depending on the laws. In Italy, for example, you can use the pepper gas, while in other countries, you can use bullets to the "taser". Obviously, the use of the taser is much more effective than pepper gas.
The benefit you get using this system is a higher level of security ...
