my RoboGuts™ Kits S.T.E.A.M. educational program; http://www.r2pv1.com/PICAXE28X2m/

Starting with the RoboGuts™ circuit board the students learn to add a few jumper wires to complete a real circuit. Then add the programming the student is learning structured programming using BASIC language so they learn about writing library functions as well. Then add the speech and singing using phonemes so their project can speak and sing songs in any language. Then after they've 3D printed the plastic parts while they worked on the first electronics and programming lessons for a project and learn to do the finishing which includes trimming off excess and painting features before assembly starts.

By the time they've completed their first project, the student ...

Based upon a need to contain and dispense a substance, a vessel and a spigot were invented. Both are stationary devices. Transporting a substance was either by animals, or mechanical means that limited, restricted, regulated distances and locations. To resolve this problem the RoFo BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser transports a substance, by way of the contained substance being equally distributed upon a person's head resulting in the holding, transporting and dispensing of a substance to, from a location, during any time without hindering, or obstructing the wearer's use of other appendages.

The headgear has advantages that solve previously existing problems of a contemporary container that was heavy, unmanageable and remained stationary. The product is made of molded Food Grade plastic, ...

Everybody that owns a house should probably do this and I'm sending this hoping someone notices. Foil sided insulation board laid over existing roof decking, foil up. 2 x 4's laid flat on insulation board over joists and screwed down. Another layer of decking, paper and shingles over 2x4's. Creates a vented cavity that draws air from bottom out through a ridge vent. The foil radiation barrier radiates it's heat into this vented cavity also. 2" thick P Iso insulation board is R12 could go to R25 or more. Keeps the asphalt shingles cooler as well so last longer. You can figure out the details from my drawings. Bug shields are easy to install or replace. It's a one-time ...

When people lack easy and reliable clean drinking water access, it is a major burden on their lives. Beyond basic health concerns and the fact that 500,000 people die annually as a direct result of diarrheal illness from inadequate drinking water, daily struggles also include having to walk far distances and wait in long lines at community water points.

By placing water filters right inside people’s homes, OHorizons is working to mitigate these issues.

We’ve engineered a Wood Mold for the production of concrete BioSand Filters (BSFs). Our low-tech design is affordable, utilizes 100% locally-sourced materials, tools, and labor, and is open-source and DIY-friendly so anyone, anywhere can download our online construction manual and bring safe drinking water access to their ...

Recently I invented a hurricane protective system for building external openings [1], which provides capability to release and remove shutter panels from the inside of the building. One of my friends joked that I invented this because of paranoia. Well, he may be right… However, is it paranoia to warn people not to go outside during the thunder storm or not to swim at dusk or dawn to avoid a possible shark attack? Yes, the probability to be killed in both cases is very low; nevertheless, it exists.

During my extensive worldwide patent search, I was surprised to learn that almost every active hurricane season results in fatal casualties related to inability to escape the premises because ...

It brings the pH of highly acidic and alkaline water to towards/close pH7. It forms a ...

According to the World Health Organization, the standard daily salt intake is 5 grams, whereas most countries consume two to three times more than the standard amount, regarding the estimates. Worldwide salt consumption exceeds the global standard; the results of a current study indicate that 87% of world population consumes more salt than the permitted amount. In addition, this study uncovers the highest salt consumption in countries of Central and Eastern Asia, Middle East and Eastern Europe.

In the world, there are barely six advanced countries that meet the low limits determined by the WHO, implementing the worldwide salt consumption reduction programs.

Side effects of high salt intake
High intake of salt and excessive consumption of salty ...

People can calculate the load capacity of a bridge, a car or an elevator. However, how do we know the maximum load someone can carry without causing a long-term damage? In fact, we begin to know when it’s too late! According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, at least 14,000 children are treated for backpack-related injuries every year. Day by day heavy backpacks carried by more than 79 million students across the U.S. can cause low back pain that often lasts through adulthood.

In order to prevent possible future back pain and thereon related orthopedic pains, we invented schoolBuddy - a mentor, a training partner and a companion for schoolchildren. The idea behind is to create an ...

As technology changes our lives, it also changes us. Technology has become embedded deeply within our lives, it is part of our everyday communication, from simple text messages to social media. Digital communication is changing the way that we communicate to others, not only through technology but face to
face as well. Research, through interviews and literature reviews, suggests that people today are less in tune with their emotions and other people's emotions. They are less able to read body language and facial expressions, and are forming barriers between themselves and the real world in order to avoid face to face interactions with others. What does this mean for the future of communication? Will there be a generational gap ...
