With a growing population that is highly exposed to an extreme working conditions and stressful life pattern, chronic muscular pain is a thing too common among both the old aged and 30+ (who use bike or work for prolonged period in the same position). The easy and common used method is to relax these stressed muscles using a hot water bag or an ice bag. This title aims in developing a system which is a combination of the two. This electronic controlled system is a strap around unit that can be easily carried and used anywhere. The compact system uses a power bank as its power source, this ultimately helps it to be used universally anywhere. Unlike the existing ...

NASAs LaRC has a new method for generating very low mass visual targets that enable three-dimensional metrology and photogrammetry measurements (surface position, shape, profile, etc.) for very thin and lightweight structures. The targets use fluorescent dyes incorporated into or applied onto the thin polymer materials used in lightweight structures. The thin film targets can also be cut out and attached to a surface. Arranged in a pattern, the invisible targets can be illuminated, using the sun or inexpensive light source, to make them visible without reflections or distortions. The approach enables lightweight, high-contrast, distortion-free targets that are less complex and intrusive than traditional target solutions. The technology is ideal for space-based, underwater, and industrial metrology applications where non-intrusive, easily ...

A lot of objects use suction cups when mounted. The problem is that all suction cups after a while lose their suction force and fall down.

ThorPad combines the well-known mushroom-shaped interface of the conventional suction cup with the amazing adhesive properties of modern polymers. The sticky side is not a glue but a special polymer that leaves no residues. The pad itself is made of a flexible but very sturdy technical polymer.

The compact Thorpad can be attached to all smooth and clean surfaces, it even attaches to curvy surfaces. It is easy to re-apply the ThorPad, just clean it in soap and water, let it dry and it is good to go.

Thorpad is the perfect direct replacement of conventional ...

This concept was regarding energy genration through tidal wave energy. In INDIA had capacity to generate 150GW of renewable energy but only 33 GW was generated; that's only 22%. So we can use our project to generate tidal energy because it is much cheaper as compared to other available concepts regarding tidal wave energy. Also flexibility was in this concept regarding location and money related.

This can also be used in boats and ships to run secondary electrical ...

High speed vertical lift aircraft has always been a constant search for the aerospace engineering community. During this search, only two aircraft have partial success reaching this goal so far, a jetfighter and a tilt rotor. The jetfighter can only land vertically but not take off. The tilt rotor cannot reach 300 knots and has other limitations. Recent evolutions of these aircraft, now in development, will improve their capabilities but may never reach performance comparable to standard fixed wing aircraft. My objective with this design is to eliminate this performance gap and enable the production of an efficient vertical take off or landing aircraft capable of both high speed and lift capabilities.

The present invention is a vertical take ...

TooLution allows an entire production line to be monitored and managed, and an optional Laser Measurement Module provides a low-cost high-precision tool measurement that allows predictive maintenance. TooLution is a universal tool management systems that can monitor and manage the CNC controllers of all major brands. In addition, it allows the machine tool data across the entire production line to be fully integrated, and provides a user-friendly web interface to a cloud based management platform that provides a growing set of functionalities, such a tool setting compensation and tool bit life prediction.

The TooLution Machine Tool Management Solution is comprised of three components:

1. Laser Measurement Module
This hardware module is a high-precision tool bit measurement device. It can ...

Torch-It is technical, economical, smart solution for visually impaired people. It is device which detects the obstacles in their path while walking. It is like a virtual cane (stick).

Two distance sensors detects obstacles horizontally as well as vertically and gives all data to the controller and controller read the data and response via vibrating motor and buzz sound shown in flow diagram. Here there are 2 modes in horizontal sensor a) indoor and b) outdoor.

a) indoor: if distance less then 80 cm- then one motor is vibrating; if distance less then 60 cm- then two motors are vibrating; if distance less then 30 cm- then three motor are vibrating.
b) outdoor: if distance less then 200 cm- ...

Problem to be solved
The best way to reduce carbon dioxide emissions is to burn less fossil fuel by using engines with higher efficiency. Even when we enter the era of biofuels and/or alternative fuels, or hydrogen fuels finally, increasing fuel conversion efficiency and reducing fuel consumption is still a significant strategic solution, because the higher the fuel costs, the higher the engine efficiency is expected. Therefore, a new kind of heat engine, with much higher fuel conversion efficiency, is desired that addresses the immediate and specific needs of reducing fossil fuel consumption, reducing greenhouse gas discharge and reducing combustion exhaust emissions.

Potential benefits
TOHRE is predicted to deliver a 40-50% efficiency gain compared to equivalent conventional engines ...

We designed a flashlight with the idea of attaching it like a GoPro to surfaces and move seamlessly between the mounts for hands-free use, while making it a flashlight that was practical and easy to use with one hand or while attached to a mount.

What makes it easy to use:
We incorporated a touchscreen on to it for ease of use like IPod did to the MP3 player. The touchscreen was a component that we found another flashlight using and tested its durability. The touchscreen component was pressure reading so that it can work with gloves and waterproof. The choice to use this component came easy when we learned how durable it was and that it was going ...

This new approach of tattoo power supply can easily eliminate the conventional cross-contamination in the typical tattoo power supply where the touch is mandatory to adjust the output power. By using the magnetic bracelet, all control of the power supply is made touchless. In addition, the sensorless RPM control is performed and guarantees the good performanceof machine ...
