Airliner Economy Class Sleeper Seat
Long nonstop airline flights of 10 to 20 hours are not uncommon. As anybody who has done it can confirm, making these flights in economy class can be very unpleasant as well as dangerous (Thrombosis). As the hours drag on it becomes harder and harder to find any position of comfort. Sleep for many people is impossible. This idea suggests a possible way to best utilize the existing very limited volume available to each economy passenger. It is primarily aimed at providing a sleeping platform but also allows an escape from a fixed sitting ...
Magnetoreception (magnetoception) is a sense which allows an organism to detect a magnetic field to perceive location. Birds and fish use it. When humans are asked to walk North, they end up walking in circles.
It is, one theory states, that it is because of the content of magnetite in the beak that birds can navigate. Interestingly, humans also have magnetite in their nose. A scientist claims to have found the 6th magnetic sense: In 2016, Sciencemag.com quoted Joe Kirschvink, geophysicist at Caltech, of saying: "It's part of our evolutionary history. Magnetoreception may be the primal sense".
If humans ...

Innovation: Boldcon Technologies introduces a new patent-pending concept that integrates fluid propulsing devices with enhanced heat exchanging mechanisms to increase heat rejection capabilities on heat exchanging devices. Referred as “Convectors,” the new devices are based on the clever utilization of “boundary layer disruption” to create heat rejecting devices that are simple in design, smaller, efficient, and quiet.
Manufacturability: All materials and components are readily available. Scaling production up is simplified by re-designing the devices with simple geometries and simple structures in order to use machining techniques that can help in the mass production of the devices.
Marketability: The product ...
Blade fatigue, due to cavitation in rocket engine turbopumps, often triggers catastrophic system failures, costing insurers of space missions, launch vehicle operators and their customers billions of dollars every year. Next Planet Research’s Supercor VFI-689 / Vortex Force Impeller (VFI) System can potentially reduce rocket engine failures by optimizing launch vehicle performance and improving aerospace industry safety margins.
The combined effects of hydrodynamic cavitation and unbalanced rotordynamic forces, as well as the accumulation of turbopump operational efficiency losses can trigger a cascade of rocket motor propellant fuel feed subsystem and component malfunctions that can result in catastrophic failure. ...
IoTNet is a multi-city muniwireless network that runs on the new 900 Mhz LoRaWAN network. It is based on TheThingsNetwork.org model and the free LoRa packet forwarder software available from our site. Unlike the TTN though, it has an Internet backend and QoS delivery with a guaranteed service level.
This summer we are building out the network to include the cities of Boston (MA), Providence (RI) and Portland (ME) as well as coastal cities in between depending upon resources. All materials for building your own IoT network can be had at our website and technical help will also come ...
It is said that by 2020 there will be nearly 50 billion Internet of Things devices connected to the Internet. But has anyone thought about how to power all of them? And, even better, how to do so in an environmentally-friendly way?
We are used to seeing, especially in some regions, an enormous number of bridges, streets and building. Every year they are growing in number and in age. Does anyone ever considered the consequence of this? Structural aging and external factor (e.g. earthquakes) can bring bridges and building to catastrophic damage causing dramatic consequences and enormous loss of money ...
Aboard the International Space Station astronauts experience a micro-gravity environment: the weight of humans and objects appears to be absent, thanks to the absence of stress and strain normally resulting from externally applied, mechanical contact-forces. This weightlessness has adverse effects on the human neural system, cardiovascular system, and musculoskeletal system. Firstly, regarding the neural system, two major problems arise, mainly because of the absence of the ground reaction force: a confusion of the vestibular system, and a possible deterioration of the neural model of posture and locomotion. Secondly, the main cardiovascular problem that arises, because of a fluid redistribution ...
The project is to design a gas turbine from type turbofan engine and the provision of jet fuel in the use of clean energy and renewable energy is hydrogen.
Known that we are consuming large amounts of fuel on flights around the world, hence the idea of using hydrogen combustion inside the engine, where they are providing fuel ratio between 10-27% of the fuel consumption and the extraction of hydrogen from water in the cell electrolytic decomposition, which in turn found in the aircraft wing or at the bottom of the plane.
And the withdrawal of gas resulting from ...
The TY1 Stabilizer Pancreas is designed to help stabilize blood sugars for Type 1 diabetics. This small device is inserted into the stomach area of the body and routinely checks glucose levels. Insulin in shot into the stomach from the device based on blood glucose levels. For dangerously low blood sugars glucose is shot into the stomach to prevent extremities such as loss of consciousness. Senors placed inside The T1 Stabilizer notify the device to check blood sugar levels when blood glucose become dangerously high or low. The TY1 Stabilizer has its own personal app that can capture blood ...
INTRODUCTION: Day by day automobiles are becoming more accessible, but they also increase the problems like shortage of fuel and pollution. Multiple companies are working on it and trying to solve this problem.
PHENOMENA: This is a type of electrical car, which produce electrical supply to run a car by faraday's law of electromagnetic induction. Faraday's law of induction is a basic law of electromagnetism predicting how a magnetic field will interact with an electric circuit to produce an electromotive force (EMF)—a phenomenon called electromagnetic induction".
CONSTRUCTION AND WORKING: Neodymium magnet one of the strongest magnet ever will be used in round ...
