The Maz21 energy concept evolved from the water web concept of 2018 (https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/16/10791/). It seeks to generate power in a cost effective way. It utilizes kinetic water turbines fixed in a series inside a 80cm internal diameter polyethylene tube. The whole system will have 4 kinetic water turbines which shall be connected to form a complete cycle. The water shall flow inside the tubes by a force from the Magnito-hydro dynamics propulsion units, designed and inserted in the tubes.
The water used in the maz21 energy concept shall be ionized in order to improve current density and reduce the joules effect resulting poor conductivity.
The whole system has a unique infrastructure design, this means the system shall burried in ...

Pedestrian safety is of extreme importance in the new autonomous vehicle environment. While vehicle sensor technologies continue to evolve and improve, there is a need for a robust back-up to help protect pedestrians , motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pets. My idea is a small wearable electronic tag that would tell an autonomous vehicle via a common standard protocol that "Hey, I'm here." For people, it could be worn on a lanyard badge holder or integrated with personal phones and smart watches . For pets, it could be attached to a collar. The device would have a low power requirement, long battery life, be thin and compact, easily replaced, and emit a signal over a limited distance that would be recognized ...

Products with marketing campaigns exist, striving to accurately meet the desires of purchasers.
Imagine: A quality beverage with recipes of historical nature, updated to construct a recognizable reputation. The innovation dominates in the target market.
Problem: For novices and consumers alike, choices vary in campaign and form. For example, expiration dates indicate freshness. With scientific innovation, products extend their lifespan. Language evolution identifies these markers. As we have come to find, eskimo’s have 20+ words for snow in varying states. All may leave a person wondering; what’s the difference?
Solution: Upon conception, color changing vodka was not just meant to increase quality of life in the 21+ leisure marketplace, but also allow its audience to deconstruct the inherently scientific ...
This invention is a solution to the annual $1 Billion problem of storm water back up in basements during power outages and all the hardship caused to homeowners, especially those with finished basements.

Unlike battery back up pumps which typically only operate for 1-2 hours, this design will run 24-7-365 keeping basements dry during power outages of any duration, without any batteries.

Other key advantages are near 100% efficiency vs. venturi pumps that are 40-50% at best, and no need for a back flow preventer with physical separation of municipal water and sump ...

Problem:
1) Various e-scooter companies (backed by venture capital) are rolling out their products in the market - the focus is major cities around the globe.
2) None of the companies have so far convincingly addressed the safety concerns related to not providing head protection as part of the actual rental process. And their customers often simply do not carry any head protection (even if it given away for free) with them.
3) The result is a growing number of head injuries. CNET reported on 28 November 2018 that "Injured scooter riders are flooding US emergency rooms. Accident rates could be as high as 1,000 per month.".

Solution:
1) The Böwler Flying Helmet combines a drone and a safety helmet into ...

Magnetic-Levitation (MagLev) rail provides a virtually frictionless way to transport people and goods at high speeds of 300 mph (480 km/h) or more. MagLev trains can be fast, but they are still trains – they must stop and start often, and stations might be far from passengers’ homes or businesses. As such, MagLev trains offer little advantage over conventional steel-wheels-on-steel-rails systems.

Let us separate “railroad” from “train” and have individual vehicles that use computer-automated technology to go non-stop from the starting to the destination depots. The fees charged to each such vehicle depend mainly on the weight of the vehicle and the distance traveled, so there is a MagLev “Turnpike”. To do this, you need to be able to switch ...

Hearo is world’s only Internet Of Sounds device. Instead of adding more and more connected, single-function, electronic devices into your home, the acoustic and musical properties of everyday objects become programmable digital controllers. Hearo connects to your smartphone where you assign any sound in your home to control digital actions of your choice using IFTTT programming. The system comes with a number of IFTTT setups that can be connected to any sound, but the more the Hearo users create and share their own setups, the more versatile Hearo becomes. This is a IoT system that opens for a new type of creativity, to explore the musical and acoustic qualities of the objects in our homes that we ...

NASA Langley Research Center has developed a novel fine interpolation technique that is useful in signal processing for applications in lidar, sonar, radar and similar modalities. The interpolation technique uses repeating waveforms, Fourier transform reordering, and Richardson-Lucy deconvolution to obtain faster and more accurate results.The prime target application is range finding, but the technique is equally suitable for differential absorption studies, such as determining CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere.

Benefits

Provides an interpolation scheme much faster than those currently in use
Consists of a simple reordering of a Fourier transform array
Can be applied broadly with any repeating waveform, and not confined to PN code and PSK modulation
Compatible with lidar, radar, sonar and similar modalities

NASA inventors have developed a set of puncture self-healing materials comprised of commercially available, known self-healing polymer resin and additive blends. A range of puncture healing blends was developed by melt blending self-healing polymers with non-self-healing polymeric materials.
Benefits

Puncture healing capability of the melt blends improves at higher temperatures
Thermoplastic materials that can repeatedly and intrinsically self-heal without the need for foreign inserts or fillers (such as microencapsulated monomer)
Blend of self-healing polymer materials with high strength polymer resins potentially enables the materials to be used in structural, load bearing applications

Applications

Radiation shielding
Fuel tank liners
Healing layers in ballistic protection for armor, helmets and other personal protective equipment
Packaging material
...

NASA Langley Research Center has developed a compact self-tuning damper to reduce vibration occurring at a fixed frequency. Tuned dampers reduce vibration of the base structure by the dissipation of energy. The magnitude of the dissipated energy is proportional to the range of motion. The NASA damper design allows the slider mass to achieve 2x-3x greater range of motion than that found in conventional devices. This enables 4x-9x more effectiveness for the same size and weight; or the same effectiveness for a 4x-9x decrease in weight. The damper is self-tunable and can be adjusted in effectiveness. The damper can be made small enough for use in wind tunnel tests or scaled up to large sizes, like those used in ...
