What if solar electricity was cheaper than fossil fuel power? How would that drive our economy and stabilize geo-political tensions? How would the climate change for the better? How would access to basic lighting help to reduce poverty on a global scale?

I am proposing a new concept that can lead to solar panels with greater than 20% efficiency and costs less than $0.50/Watt leading to electricity costs of less than $0.06/kWh.

Existing thin-film photovoltaic (TFPV) technologies are commercially available (about 10% of global market share) and have the distinct advantages of high-throughput deposition methods and material flexibility. Although TFPV laboratory devices based on various materials have recently achieved greater than 20% efficiency, further advancements are required to tighten ...

At present the joints that help to convert motion up to or more than 3DOF are universal joint, ball and socket joint, Hooke’s joint etc. But these joints are not rigid to convert the motion and the tilted angle is also too low. To overcome this difficulty the following gear system may help. Presently the gear systems transmit their motion up to 2DOF. for example gear drive in gear boxes transmit 2DOF and gears like spur gear, helical gear, bevel gear etc., are used to transmit 1DOF only. When two shafts are joined together their motion is transmitted with the help of these joints. But in robotic arm more than 2 shafts are used. This makes the system more ...

A new revolutionary patent pending solar technology that increases the power of a solar panel by as much as 200 times, while simultaneously storing the energy in the form of hydrogen for later use, has been invented and developed.

An electron has both wavelike and particle properties. This new technology uses both properties of the electron to generate coherent electromagnetic radiation tuned to water vapor and electrical power at the same time. The water vapor may come from any source, including rain, sea or waste. The eRET generates electrons at very high potential so that very high power is produced with minimal electron energy input. Genesys,LLC has a working prototype routinely producing 10 kilowatts from two 100 watt solar ...

You could learn how all of the electronic stuff we use everyday really works?
You could learn how to fix broken electronic devices?
You could learn how build your own electronic devices?
You didn't have to worry about soldering or confusing breadboards to get started?
All of the small fragile components were packaged in an easy to handle blocks?
You could instantly see the relationship between schematics and components?
Electronics could be taught at the elementary school level?
Learning electronics technology was as easy and fun as playing with blocks?
The answer to all of those questions is YES?

Introducing a new way to learn electronics technology.

The current, existing Internet is fundamentally unsecure, what is result of design of this Internet.
Only way to create a secure Internet is to develop a new, secure Internet - it is Internet-like, but with a design different from the current Internet, telecommunication systems. The new design or designs should provide for full or may be nearly full security. The substance of the proposed idea is to start a work aimed at developing such new, secure Internet.

The teleprocessing information systems used for sensitive and important tasks will be called later “the mission-critical teleprocessing information systems.” It is a common practice using the existing Internet is an adequate telecommunication base for such mission-critical teleprocessing information systems. However these practice is ...

In recent years there has been a shortage in energy supply like fossil fuel and concerns about environmental issues. Considering only 10-16% of fuel energy burned by the engines is used to drive the vehicles, we developed an innovative energy harvesting absorber to regenerate electricity from vibrations in the suspension system usually wasted as heat in oil shock absorbers. The regenerative absorbers can be designed with the same size and shape to replace the conventional absorbers without changing structure of the conventional suspension system, which helps improve 2-4% fuel efficiency.

This electromagnetic energy-harvesting shock absorber is based on our unique concept of a mechanical motion rectifier (MMR). The MMR can directly convert irregular reciprocating oscillation vibrations into regular ...

A NOVEL METHOD FOR SELF REGULATED COIL WINDING MACHINE

The conventional coil winding machine winds copper wire onto a former (winding fixture). The number of slots in the former depends upon the design class of the motor. Mechanical counters are used to count the number of turns wound up on the former. The former is attached to the sliding arm which is actuated manually. As motors are the basic need for all operation requiring automation, the stator winding becomes the growing and essential process in automation solutions. The type of wire used in the motors of submersible pump differs from the rest.

The proposed design of the project consists of a fully automated coil winding machine. It winds the coil ...

Due to the “Utilization Wall,” future CMOS technology calls for a radically new microprocessor architecture with less transistor switching, to take full advantage of both density and speed.

This is important not only for big many-core processors but also very small chips that are to be made in very large quantities, such as many of the nodes in the Internet of Things (IoT).

A novel processor architecture, having built-in support for LLVM, has been developed by Imsys. A proof-of-concept chip has been manufactured in 65nm. Measurements verify that performance is comparable to that of much bigger processor cores, and that energy efficiency is better than what has been reported for architectures claimed to be the most efficient.

The chip ...

Electricity-operated durable medical equipment (DME), such as ventilators and dialysis machines, are life-supporting medical devices used at home by patients. The use of DME is not only convenient and economical, but also leads to a better quality of life for the patient. In a 2013 survey, WHO estimated that in Japan alone, as many as 13,000 DME are in use[1].

However, DME-dependent patients are extremely vulnerable during natural disasters due to stopping of their machines and lack of means for them to contact hospitals in the case of damaged infrastructure including cell/landline services and/or Internet connection. There is no existing technology suitable for tracking DME-dependent patients during power outages as commercial locators/trackers, such as Pocketfinder[2] and eZoom[3], all rely ...

Cyanobacteria have the ability to convert CO2 into bio-products, and also have a high photosynthetic efficiency (3 to 9%) compared to that of higher plants (?0.25 to 3%), and because they're amenable to genetic engineering, they were used in the last couple of years in direct bio-fuel production by photosynthesis studies; so I decided to investigate the use of cyanobacteria in photobioreactors to convert the CO2 into bio-fuel, to be used for both large and small scales.

Using homemade equipment I made a small photobioreactor that could be used as a car filter, where all the conditions were optimum for the cyanobacteria to grow and photosynthesize normally. I used the wild-type Synechococcus sp.7942 strain (to represent the mutated strain) ...
