We propose the development of a smart flashlight for employees of rescue services, firefighters, miners, police officers, people working in dangerous conditions and even tourists. It can be used as an ordinary flashlight, in the hands, or it can be fixed on the helmet of the employee. The flashlight must be equipped with a radioactive radiation sensor, sensor of hazardous asphyxiating and explosive gases, ultraviolet, infrared and visible radiation, temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure sensors (can be converted to altitude above sea level). In addition, a GPS sensor will be built into the case, for operation in open areas, as well with the inertial measurement unit (IMU), for determining coordinates and moving in buildings or underground. All collected data ...

The demand for miniature devices is big and growing quickly. Smaller devices are lighter, faster, use less power and consume fewer resources. They have enabled wearables, point of care diagnostics, IoT devices, and the aerospace industry.

But methods for making these devices are slow and expensive.

Conversely, 3D printing, has enabled rapid prototyping and the ability to design iteratively and make complex structures that could not have been built previously. But not at the size needed for the micromachines behind all these technologies.

The ability to rapid prototype micromachines is so far an untapped market, with enormous potential.

With Laminated Resin Printing (LRP) we can now make these very small structures in a fast, affordable and user-friendly tool for ...

When batteries catastrophically fail, they can overheat, rupture, and or explode. Susceptible lithium ion batteries are everywhere - in consumer products like e-cigarettes, mobile phones, and electric cars, as well as in airplanes and facilities for alternative energy storage. Failures bring serious consequences:

-From 2015-2017, e-cigarette injuries sent more than 2,000 people to the hospital across the U.S. Several incidents were disfiguring or fatal. https://tobaccocontrol.bmj.com/content/28/4/472

-In 2016, Samsung recalled more than one million Galaxy Note 7 phones after at least 35 reports of overheating or exploding batteries worldwide.

-In May 2019, Tesla issued a software update to adjust battery settings in Model S and Model X cars after videos of cars bursting into flames in Asia became public.

-An ...

In this current world where technology is growing up day by day which is gradually increasing the usage of precious and expensive things in day to day life for making works handier, the need for security is also hyped in all areas. On the other hand as a human being, we always want to get maximum possible results with less effort and expense. We know well that in the 21st century biometrics is a very effective way of security authentication, but again using the physical biometrics sensors for this purpose makes it a lot more expensive as well as a bit complicated for a common man to afford and use.

When thought variedly for the solution to this problem ...

• Simple Smart Monitoring from (Almost) Anywhere

Connected by a revolutionary new cellular-based technology, the Kiwi empowered by Skyhawk allows you to monitor belongings and remote items located virtually anywhere* without the need for external power or other internet connections, such as WiFi or Bluetooth.

Using advanced MEMS sensor technology, the Kiwi can monitor assets that are touched, moved, or opened using an internal smart accelerometer and integrated reed switch sensor.

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 automates several redundant tasks, aids in hardware minimization while helping DIY-hackers, hardware startups and students alike in rapid ...

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 ...

Sunatori's Effect refers to Anisotropic Electromagnetic Force Phenomena which were recently discovered by Simon Sunatori, P.Eng./ing., M.Eng. (Engineering Physics/Génie physique), F.N.A., IEEE-SM, WFS-LM, BNR/NT (MSS).

Anisotropy manifests itself in dramatic fashion as unexpected physical phenomena of magnetic attraction-repulsion, which is analogous to love-hate relationship. Experiments appear to defy basic law of nature, raising more questions than answers. Such a fundamental discovery could lead to some industrial applications in future.

Homo-Magnetic Like-Pole Attraction

Conventional wisdom dictates that like poles repel and opposite poles attract. Thus, the S-pole of a small-diameter rod-shaped or disc-shaped permanent magnet attaches to the N-pole of a large-diameter disc-shaped permanent magnet as expected, as shown in Figure 1, albeit only to the peripheral region. However, the ...

Most of us wear synthetic fabrics like polyester every day. Our dress shirts, yoga pants, fleeces, and even underwear are all increasingly made of synthetic materials plastic, in fact. But these synthetic fabrics, from which 60% of all clothing on earth is made, have a big hidden problem: when they’re washed, they release tiny plastic bits called microfibers that flow down our drains, through water treatment plants, and out into our rivers, lakes and oceans by the billions.

If there is a mechanism that can collect all these microfibers, cloth manufacturing companies can reuse the microfibers to make new clothing like tough, very soft-to-the-touch materials for general clothing use. This collection can be done using a newly designed washing ...
