Fresh surface water mostly is contaminated by diarrhoeal pathogens. This vast source of water can be rendered safe for ‘point of use’ drinking application using our low cost solar water Pasteurisation device, ‘LifeRoll.’ Collected rainwater can also be Pasteurised to make it safe for drinking. LifeRoll is made of polythene sheets following our innovative design. When not in use, the device can be deflated and rolled into a small package for easy storage and transportation. It can also be part of a disaster kit or can be air-dropped in disaster areas to save lives, hence the name, ‘LifeRoll’. Traditional ...
Recently, the world has seen various non-conventional sources being successfully commercialized. However, their cost and efficiency is still a major hurdle in their global acceptance over fossil fuels.
The existing rotor blade method of harvesting the ubiquitous wind energy has quite a few drawbacks so we propose a new wind energy scavenging technique which uses Vortex Induced Vibration (VIV) based on “Von Karman effect”.
This effect is observed when a fluid flows over a bluff body (cylinder in this case) causing uneven distribution of pressure around it. The idea revolves around a precisely designed cylinder vibrating resonantly over a ...

In physics, pulsating combustion of gases from two or more different locations near each other will tend to push each away from the other and the resulting velocity of pulsating combusted gases are amplified by the velocity of combusted gases from the other pulsating combustion that are pushing them away. But the case is different in two or more uninterrupted combustions arranged in a linear position (as in the case of jet engines). In jet engines where linear combustion occurs, two or more uninterrupted linear combustions from different locations near each other creates a constant barrier between them, so ...

AutiZmo is A Quantum Robot that can scan the Quanta of both Humans and Animals and determine the Thinking Patterns and also the Emotional Patterns, with Accuracy. This leads to understanding the present behavior and past influential experiences that caused it.
Initially designed for non verbal people as a translating tool with Autism in mind, it has expanded as an idea for Coma Patients, Stroke Victims and anyone who has lost their speech and can not express themselves, and also for Pet Owners to know their pets on a deeper level by understanding their Internal World.
This Device will Revolutionize ...
Providing clean water in humanitarian emergencies is essential, however few household water purification systems have been developed with this context in mind. In an emergency setting usability, durability, transportability, and cost arise as crucial aspects of purification systems design that sit alongside the vital pathogen filtering capacity of the technologies. Focusing on these features of purification systems, in addition to their filtering capabilities,is essential to improve water treatment in humanitarian emergencies.
In this study, flood water collected in a bucket (20 L) from nearby sources and 2.0 gram of MOSP (moringa seed powder, and shell powder) were added and ...
Across the country dental students and instructors struggle with the following problems as they try to learn and teach periodontal hand instruments.
• Instrument tips should be positioned at specific angles, however visual observation is subjective and inconsistent even for professionals. Reverse images (mirror) and varied tooth positions (upper/lower jaw) make it extremely difficult to judge and apply correct tip angles.
• Students must wait for instructors to watch them use an instrument and after a brief subjective evaluation they are left alone again. There is no equipment or method to determine the ACTUAL angles. This is a slow ...
Reflow creates sustainable 3D printing materials with heart and precision. We transform local waste streams into premium material to fuel the 3D printing revolution. While 3D printing is taking off we have an unique opportunity to make sure this industry is zero-waste and a true driver of a fully circular future. Local manufacturing, done with locally sourced sustainable materials.
Over the last 50 years, we have grown industries that have become addicted to plastics. In 2014 alone 311 million tonnes of plastic was produced. And this production is expected to double over the next 20 years. As less that ...
Our pyrolysis plant, Bio-Alternative (BA), delivers a solution to the growing waste problem worldwide. Our design is unique in its vertical construction and for the first time it is possible to not only recycle pelleted organic pieces, but to pyrolyze any type of organic waste (wood, feces, even plastics) and use the output materials (raw oil, biogas and biochar) as a renewable energy source (biogas and raw oil), resp. to apply biochar in teh soil as a strategy for co2-mitigation, as well as to increase soil fertility by applying either biochar or directly terra preta (biochar mixed with humus ...

According to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, US paper currency is made up of 75% cotton and 25% linen. That is, there are three-fourths of a pound of cotton in each pound of dollar bills. This same source also informs us that there are 454 bills in a pound of currency.
During Fiscal Year 2009, over six billion bills of all denominations were printed in the United States, consuming 21,476 bales of cotton. The total dollar value of these bills was two hundred and nineteen billion dollars, or $21,290.55 per pound of cotton. The bills taken out of circulation ...

Nuclear reactors are the most hazardous areas where human intervention is not possible. Visual inspection is often required to inspect the reactors. To perform visual inspection a camera has to be placed inside the reactor. It is difficult to place a camera inside the reactor because that it will be damaged by the radiations from the reactors. So robots are the alternate option to send inside the reactors for the inspection of temperature, quality of welds and components. In such situations it is often required to obtain the ergonomic position of the robot. To overcome such problem, a robot ...
