The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have warned there is only a dozen years for global warming to be kept to a maximum of 1.5C. To restore carbon storage into oceans, plants and landmasses thus reducing greenhouse gasses (Carbon Dioxide and Methane) before the Earth becomes like Venus.

Using ferromagnetic repulsion from pyrolytic carbon and attraction to each other, a three column interactive oscillator produces harvested valence electrons for output power.
The inspirational journey to an autonomous renewable power source came from viewing a GE experiment (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1CdUqNrj28) in 1936 which showed that by heating non-radiating non-retentive ferromagnetic material its property is temporarily changed to non-repulsive diamagnetic material, which is thermal transductance, do to the disruption of its molecular ...

Adaptable not only to the environment, but to itself as well.

The full diversity of my Light-Interface System concept can be demonstrated with my model of an invisible suit.

My 3-D Pixel Unit concept already exists, in part, as an angle sensitive pixel, but without the counterpart 3-D pixels and the length of connection between them.

The spherical symmetry of an angle sensitive pixel, adapted to other spherically symmetric 3-D Pixel Units across a Light-Interface System is what allows it to capture the full intersecting angles of the web-of-light thru the concentrated shape of the object in the Light-Interface.

Due to the full wrap-around symmetry of the light-web intersection, replicated in a concentration, by fully wrap-around 3-D Pixels Units on a body, the ...

External 3-Dimensional Holodeck Scenery

In it's simplest form, invisibility is depicted outside of the Light-Interface System, while an intersection ( holodeck) of the outside light is displayed, painted all along the interior walls in the Light-Interface, itself.

External Holodeck Scenery

The external world is transmitted thru the Light-Interface System, and part is diverted into continuing it's path thru the space that the Light-Interface System rests in, while a seperate holodeck reality can be painted all along the interior walls of the Light-Interface.

Internal Hologram Casting

If not a computer-generated internal hologram, such as a person or other furniture of the background scenery, it must first be projected from another " input receiving" Light-Interface, before it can be flipped around and transmitted back out the ...

The purpose of the solar-silo is to decrease the geological footprint of solar arrays (using existing technologies) while maintaining maximum array output, eliminating solar tracking and reducing maintenance.

A solar-silo is a silo-shaped structure having a clear geodesic domed roof surrounding a solar array positioned around the inside perimeter with a clear cylindrical column containing a light refracting medium in the center of the structure.

Each geodesic segment of the clear geodesic domed roof has an attached Fresnel lens with its focal point passing through the top of the light refracting column (with only the top of the refracting column illuminated by the magnified light of the Fresnel lens). The refraction column consists of a closed clear cylindrical container, with a ...

This idea is about the incorporation of artificial intelligence (AI) in missiles as replacement of heat seekers in order to eliminate the effects of flares that are usually deployed by the target in order to evade heat seeking missiles which is technically called Infrared Homing missiles. The artificial intelligence smart missiles may be equipped with several cameras in order to assist the image recognition of an AI in all angle so that the smart missile can freely locate the target in all angle.

Heat seeking missile is good only in sneak attack where the target has no time to deploy flares but if the target is aware of the situation an artificial intelligent smart missile may be the best option ...

Overcome consumer reluctance to the adoption of self-driving car technology by anthropomorphizing a separate AI-controlled self-driving vehicle which controls the navigation and operation of a connected passenger compartment. Within certain safety parameters, the human occupants would have a residual mechanism for overriding the AI as to the speed and direction of travel.

Instead of putting consumers in the counter-intuitive position of being in the "driver's seat" of a car without the need to maintain situational awareness and control over the vehicle, we use the culturally familiar concept of the "smartest horse in the barn" to create a physical separation between the consumer/travelers and the computer-controlled vehicle that is undertaking the journey, all the while providing reassuring backup control mechanisms--that ...

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 water.

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

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 ...
