This design uses virtual reality (VR) tools to conduct detailed examinations of human melanoma and disease progression and possible treatment. The tests will use a ConfocalVR systems. Instead of viewing cell images as a three-dimensional model on a flat computer screen, clinicians and researchers will be able to project cell images from normal and diseased tissue into a VR space, see detailed images of internal structure and directly interact with the three-dimensional images in virtual reality.

Patients themselves can immerse themselves in the VR space and view the VR images using our tools. ImageJ software free from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is used to convert confocal microscope image stacks into 3D volumetric object files (NIfTI ) that ...

INTRODUCTION:
The maturity of the technologies for the guidance and control of RPAS allows for innovative operational options such as the ability to spray (a liquid) a significant amount of an agent of any sort at a pre-established point in the atmosphere. This is the case of NitroFirex, an innovative project that integrates already available defense and UAVs technologies in order to attain an operative capability that can be applied, at night, in the battle against wildfires and fumigation of drug plantations.

Due to the human and ecological harm caused, the social alarm generated as well as the economic losses that they bring forth, the project that NitroFirex is developing with maximum priority is the one to combat these ...

Explaining how my device does the following:

a. Monitoring C02 levels in the immediate vicinity of the crew member, preferable near the mouth and nose:
The Proposed personal CO2 monitor is a portable, wearable Bluetooth device which is clipped to the upper body clothing of its user. It can be built with commercial IR sensors like the Arduino Analog Infrared CO2 Sensor or most preferably the “CozIR sensor” which are lightweight and use significantly less power so can be battery powered only needing to be charged after weeks or more of usage.

b. Is not obstructive so as to minimize crewmember discomfort and distraction:
The device is designed to have a small form factor, it is attached to the ...

You are unhappy with flies, ants, & cockroaches in your kitchen.
You are worried about houseflies’ contamination.
You are uncomfortable with an ugly and messy insect trap in your house.
You hate to clean dead flies.
You are anxious about children and pets touching dirty insect traps.
You want to throw the insects trap as a garbage bag.

There are significant flaws in existed insect traps such as:
- Insect is stuck on an open adhesive tape, dead body or part may fall down during cleaning up and disposal.
- Insect stuck inside a close adhesive box, it is difficult to check how many trapped death insects to decide when to clean ...

Accexlron is a rapid prototyping micro-controller development board based on the high-performance RISC architecture based ATmega 2560. The board comes with a host of functionalities like - Built-in motor driver circuitry, Bluetooth and Wifi Plug--n-Play compliancy. Higher voltage and current thresholds, Greater Sketch Size and Higher Throughput of 16MIPS at 16Mhz clock speed. The board was primarily designed to eliminate redundant tasks like being vigil about the current and voltage supply, excess power supply that led to frying of your application. The board is supposed to automate several redundant tasks, aid in hardware minimisation while helping DIY-hackers, hardware startups and students alike in rapid ...

Contrary to logic and general theory, a bullet with a flat tip moves in water several times faster than a bullet with a sharp tip. This effect is simply explained: a flat tip creates cavitation bubbles that rub on the rest of the bullet surface very slightly. That is, the total area of friction is reduced so much that it fully compensates for the enormous resistance of the flat tip.

Is it possible to achieve this effect in aerodynamics? Everyone says no, since cavitation is only a property of the fluid. But even in the '30s, it was proven that at high speeds the gas has fluid dynamics. Just this discovery allowed to improve cooling technology.
But what configuration ...

Tests on anchovies show that when plastic is mixed with salt water and begins to disintegrate it releases an odor which is similar to krill. The enticing smell sets off foraging and feeding behaviour in fish, causing them to eat the debris, believing it is food. Previously scientists thought that fish were ingesting tiny particles of plastic by accident when they were hoovering up floating pieces of plankton or krill. But the new study suggests the problem is even more serious because fish are actually attracted to the plastic.

A recent study estimated that nine in 10 of the world’s seabirds now have pieces of plastic in their guts, mainly through eating fish which have ingested plastic. A recent ...

We have developed an integrated air quality monitoring UAS which also has collision avoidance technique to avoid collision with real time obstacles while monitoring. We have used an ultrasonic sensor for collision avoidance and mq135 for air quality sensing. We have developed a program for displaying the pollution gas availablity in percentage instead of ppm.

An anti collision system is essential for safe flight of the drone. It gives a simple solution for obstacle detection and collision avoidance in UAVs. The obstacle is detected using the ultrasonic sensor (HC-SR04).

Ultrasonic sensors work by emitting sound waves at a frequency too high for humans to hear. They then wait for the sound to be reflected back, calculating distance based on ...

Prior to AC all-magnet motors were used for some four decades then forgotten, perhaps from ferrites of the day too weak to be very practical while today with cobalts they are far stronger and last at 90% full power >>700-years.

A recent 1-Megawatt all-magnet generator was developed to have 'no spark', for security to provide power in with explosives and isolated from external needs, has a 50-year, 100%-Continuous Duty-cycle output guarantee with normal service.

A specific design for the Astrobotic M-1 Lander, became a novel geometry of all-magnet motors for electricity of 2.6kw, 110vdc, 24A, 18cm x 7.6cm in diameter replacing a 542w solar panel for use in space.

An advantage for in-transit being aiming with reactors no fuel, allows lunar night ...

The invention addresses the problems of food and beverage preservation within minutes of time, which means in a situation where cooling beverages or food product is needed quickly, this product will be very useful. The basic idea of the invention is a very small or hand refrigerator that can instantly cool beverages or food products within a matter of minutes. This is done by using conduction heat exchange instead of convection for faster heat transfer between the coils and the cooling product.

Instant cooling hand refrigerator is a very small refrigerator intended for home and field use that can cool beverages and food products under a minute for preservation or satisfaction. This means there is a demand for fast ...
