As we all know, mosquitoes are carriers of all sort of undesirable things. Don’t need to remind you of the latent possible comeback of Sika virus to our lands as temperatures get warmer and the vector population increases. Hence we should fight back with all we've got and if we don’t have the tools we must create them for our safety and own good. This concept and design is an elastic band covered with a membrane impregnated with a special formula and some infrared light sources to attract mosquitoes and once near the warm and tasty membrane would provide the insect/s its / their final bite. (It's worth the try, simple to make, safe for the masses and everyone ...

My concept was inspired by the game called "Jenga." To make composite fabrication somewhat easier I developed a system of arranging blocks in a pattern to give the shape of the final product. This mold is then wrapped in the composite material. The mold is then encased in an outer shell the resin added and then can be pressed or left to stand free. My prototype "box" has openings at each end however it is possible to have only one opening the size of which will be determined by the relative size of the blocks used in the construction of the mold. This process may lend it self to degree of automation during the setup and removal stages. The ...

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 with position monitoring system has been proposed. The main purpose of the paper is to develop a remote user interface ...

In the past decade, robotic systems have been used with increased popularity for explosive ordnance (EOD) missions. Advances in robotic technology have made it possible for robots to perform functions previously only possible by human workers wearing a blast suit. The primary advantage of using robotic systems for explosive ordinance disposal/diffusion is reduced risk to humans. The bomb diffusing robot which will help to improve defence of our nation from terrorist, suicide bombers and other such activities. The bomb detectors and disposal system works only with the presence of experts. But this way of analyzing takes more time and make risk to life of experts. The Bomb Disposal Robot uses a control application, at the user end to control ...

Travelling s a passion for many people, but the main problem faced by most travellers is being not well equipped for a safe journey. The main problems faced by the travellers are (1) protection from heat, (2) protection from rain (3) storage of water (4) collection of water (5) directional guidance in case of being lost. Bottlebrella gives a solution to all these problems.

So, what is BOTTLEBRELLA?

Bottlebrella is essentially an umbrella which can act as a normal umbrella when you need protection from heat or rain, it can store water just like a bottle which help the travellers from being dehydrated and in cases of survival it can be used to collect water when other sources for ...

Aim:
The main aim of developing this device is to provide drug free therapy for insomnia without any side effects and in cost effective manner.

Objective:
1. To develop a device to generate sleep inducing stimuli such as audio, visual and acupressure.
2. To provide audio-visual and acupressure (AVT) stimuli to insomniac patients to sleep before.
3. Validation using Polysomnographic study.

Insomnia is condition with difficulty initiating sleep difficulty in maintaining sleep, characterized by frequent awakenings or problems returning to sleep after awakenings. It may result in an increased risk of motor vehicle collisions, as well as problems focusing and learning. Existing methods to treat insomnia are sleep hygiene, cognitive behavioral therapy and sleeping pills, that has ...

POTENTIAL CANCER TREATMENT WORTHY OF INVESTIGATION

Purpose: The purpose of this suggested research is two-fold: (1) To find an effective treatment for breast cancer, and; (2) find a treatment method less debilitating than chemotherapy, or at least a supplementary procedure to chemotherapy that reduces debilitating effects. This suggested preliminary research is within the scope of undergraduate projects and affordable within small grants budgets.

Targeted Acetone Poisoning

Acetone occurs naturally in the body, and is metabolized by the liver. Excessive amounts of acetone can cause acetone poisoning, a condition called ketoacidosis. Type II diabetics sometimes develop Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) and hyperglycemia. Patients with DKA have marked fluid and electrolyte deficits, which inhibit cell function, and death can result in acute cases.

Localized poisoning ...

Preventing the spread of the flu or the common cold is a perennial unsolved problem for the general public. In the US alone, there are upwards of 49,000 lives lost each year (depending on type of flu that year) and untold loss of productivity from millions of sick individuals. The development of a new system - Breathe Safe - answers this major problem. This product prevents the transfer of airborne infections in a straightforward but unique way and has been fully patented.

Our approach is to generate a small, predictably shaped, air barrier and to position this barrier between individuals sitting across from each other at a desk or otherwise engaged in conversation. This barrier deflects the breath streams ...

Kevlar is used to build bullet proof jacket and other stuff. Non newtonian fluid is which fluid is not obey newtons force principle. This fluid is different from reguler fluids.

When the impact force is apply on this type of fluid and the thickness of fluid {volume in 3d}is sufficient. When force is applied it behaves like solid body and absorbs some of force.

i here combine both {kevlar + non newtonian fluid } to make my project.

My bullet proof sheet is appears as see in picture attach below. In figure see one sheet is out from bigger cylinder. In bigger cylinder sheet is in shape of spiral when pull outside it make straight like sheet.

Due to late entry, I have noted another working on the same concept although our design is more for the Police Officer and probably would not meet the needs for our Military / Defence. Law Enforcement doesn't get the attention that our Military does. I am not stating that this cooling device could not be used on Military but I have not researched rules for Military PPE.

This device is an air cooling system that can be turned on or off, can be used on high or low setting for cooling only. We use rechargeable Li batteries or better than Li dependant on battery pricing. A simple recharging circuit sewn into the outside of the body of the vest ...
