The Problem
Vertigo and dizziness are among the most frequent complaints seen in Emergency rooms and outpatient clinics. While most individuals experience impaired motion perceptual cues from a vertigo/dizziness attack for several seconds. As many as 2.6 million Americans with a diagnosis of an inner ear (vestibular) disorder such as Meniere's Disease, Vestibular Migraine, or Mal debarquement syndrome suffer from persistent impairment for several hours. The problem for these individuals is that current rehab and therapeutic solutions available either yield incomplete recovery or produce sedating side-effects. Consequently, they can be forced to spend as much as ¼ of every month dizzy without an effective tool to manage their symptoms and get them back on their feet as quickly as ...

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 ...

* The automotive industry continues to look at new ways to meet tightening government regulations. Presently, the top half of a modern overhead cam engine is a busy, crowded place filled with valves, springs, seals, gaskets, bearings and more. It works but at the cost of complexity and it operates at less than optimal efficiency.

* Our innovative camless valve-train concept, Glide Valve Engine Technology (glidevalve.com) is a patented new head design to maximize the volumetric efficiency of any internal combustion engine. The novelty for Glide Valve Engine Technology is that it seals the combustion pressure with a non-invasive valve. In addition, it utilizes independent electronic software-driven actuators that can open the intake valve sooner and close the exhaust ...

Cranes are used to move loads from one location to another in minimum time such that the load reaches its destination without swinging. As we all know, that swinging problem occurs due to flexibility of wires but if the wire is rigid and permanently fixed on one side then the swinging problem will not occur.

As per the sketch there will be a telescopic arm and one side of the arm will be attached with the trolley of the crane. This rigid telescopic arm will be connected with the load at the time of lifting the load. In this way there will be no problem of swinging as the rigid telescopic arm will be fixed with the trolley and ...

Problem Statement:
Over 600 million Africans lack access to electricity; 80 million of these are Nigerians. This forces families and local street food vendors to spend a huge part of their income continuously on fuel in kerosene lamps for lighting. Mobile phone use is on the rise too and possessing one entails locating electricity to recharge which is even more expense and difficult.

Our Product:
Ina Lite is a sustainable, affordable, portable, lightweight, thermoelectric generator that harnesses heat energy to generate electricity which is accessible from a USB power port.

How it works:
-The User places the copper conductor in the heat source
-Heat is then converted to electricity through the thermoelectric generator
-The energy generated is channeled to a ...

Additive Desorption System (ADS) is an ex-situ remediation procedure for treating Contaminants of Concern (COC)-impacted soils and dewatered sediments.

ADS operates by loading soils or dewatered sediments onto a conveyer-belt which then loads the material into a mechanical hopper unit. Once the material is added to the hopper, the unit is filled with a proprietary treatment reagent and the blending mechanism is initiated. During the blending process, organic toxins that were sorbed to impacted media transition into the dissolved phase, effectively capturing the COCs in the treatment reagent. The slurry then undergoes a phase separation to remove treated solids from liquid reagent. The reagent, now containing COCs in dissolved phase, is pumped into a separate containment tank and the ...

The tactical smart gyroballcam grenade, or TSGBCG for short, has 2 camera sensors located on each opposing side of the gyroscope which include capabilities of infrared light, ultra violet and night vision incorporating zoomable abilities. TSGBCG manafactures 3 various models for varied situations: smoke dispersement grenade, a detonation grenade and gas dispersement grenade.

TSGBCGs use sensored detonation abilities or disbursement capabilities. TSGBCG is loaded onto a smart docking/charging holster on your hip or thigh. Hip/thigh charging docking station clips around thigh/hip with 3 adjustable comfort straps. Hip/thigh docking station plugs into an outlet to regain charge/power. Hip/thigh docking station can load charge 4/6 TSGBCGs. Once emptied of disbursement agents TSGBCGs can be refilled via leg docking station or on ...

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 ...

Desert regions are excellent places to generate solar power, as the sun shines directly and uninterruptedly during the day. These areas are also the most dusty places in the world due to the prevailing drought. The sand and dust particles clearly hinder the generation of electricity, as the sun's rays are deflected or obscured. PV and CSP system operators are thus forced to constantly clean the surfaces of solar systems with water in order to minimise yield losses. Otherwise they are threatened with yield losses of up to 1 percent per day if the collector surfaces are not cleaned.

But this again causes enormous O&M costs, because water is a precious commodity in desert regions. At least because the ...

INNOVICLE is an innovative design concept presented by us for the development of a bicycle in the consumer product range. This conceptual design is basically designed by keeping in mind the changes in the environment due to the increasing harsh effects of pollution due to the use of fossil fuels. Now it's time to shift to consumer products which can effectively help our society in harvesting energy that can be used in normal day to day life works.

In our design concept, we are introducing the concept of Triboelectric nanogenerator Technology in a bicycle in such a way that we will be able to harvest energy during the motion of the bicycle it will not be affecting our environment ...
