I have a design for cities and towns that could possibly be perplexed but improve and overhaul city and town structures. I have a pretty good grasp that it would control flooding problems in most areas. Imagine a cup if you will holding water. If we can rather contain water in a cup then what stops us from more highly sustainable technology when it comes to flood walls? Heck, we could even contain water to make fresh drinking water out of it instead of recycling water so that it is fresh! My idea comes with the thought of containment of water to that of water in a cup. I have an idea of heavy 13 foot wall metal-plastic alloy ...

An elephant tooth is one of the biggest illegal market in the world and it is one of the main reasons why there are illegal killing elephants. So far it has been difficult for the world to trace this market and destroy it completely because the market is done in secret and it is very hard to stop illegal hunters because most of them use different sophisticated methods. And while we are working to figure out a way for the elephants to be safe, illegal hunters keep killing one elephant that only gives only two pieces of teeth.

This project is about proposing a method that kills this illegal market by irradiating the selling product because if there is ...

E-BIN is new way to recycle with a mobile phone app system known as Bottles-4-Bucks. The software encourages recycling by paying rewards and saves city, university and tax-payer dollars by simplifying the recycling process. The app communicates to any existing recycling bins by simply adding QR (Quick Response) code stickers to them. Enhanced bins will communicate via Bluetooth. Collection sites are placed at key locations throughout cities, parks or campuses and can be arranged as needed to sort containers of glass, plastic, aluminum and other materials of choice upon deposit.

Participants earn “green points” in the form of restaurant coupons, event tickets, student perks or “electronic cash” on their phone app for good deeds in recycling. Existing recycling bins can ...

The presented Idea is based on heat exchange principle. It will work in this way that the temperature of the machine or electronic device will be not increased. As per the sketch there will be a conveyor belt system and copper stripes will be connected with this belt.

Each copper strip will have a moveable hook.

The conveyor belt will move with two motors.

Each copper strip will be separated with each other and with conveyor belt with the help of Insulation.

How this idea will work?

The idea is very simple.when the copper stripe will be connected with the machine for Five to ten seconds then it will work to absorb the heat and after that this copper ...

The demand for locally-sourced food, particularly in urban settings, has skyrocketed in recent years and is projected to continue climbing. However, as the population density of urban settings continues to increase worldwide, it is becoming less feasible to grow food locally because of the footprint it requires. This award-winning invention is a rapidly-deployable, innovative greenhouse design that can grow up to eight types of crops autonomously and efficiently. It utilizes a novel spiral architecture to grow crops vertically, rather than horizontally, to optimize its use of space. This design was originally developed by MIT engineers for a NASA competition to support a crew of astronauts on Mars. In spaceflight, every bit of volume is at a premium. Therefore, this ...

According to https://thewaterproject.org/water-crisis/water-in-crisis-ethiopia, Ethiopia is located in Africa's Horn where drought and politics are two leading causes of water shortage. In a study conducted by Water.org, they found that "42% of the population has access to clean water supply" and only "11% of that number has access to adequate sanitation services". In rural areas of the country, these figures drop even lower, resulting in health problems in the villagers as well as their animals. There is a lack of water in Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa. There can be many reasons but the most common one is wastage. This design solves the major water wastage of car wash service. As seen in the attached pictures, the common car ...

Energy is one of the main currencies in our world. One of the sources of energy is solar power. Since it is a renewable power source, countries all over the world are adopting it primarily among wind power, geothermal and hydropower. Scientists all over the world are always desperate to find ideas on a new power source and increase the efficiency of the existing ones. This project proposes a new concept on increasing the performance of solar panels by utilizing photons better than the existing solar panels. The current (flat) solar panels efficiency is very small compared to the space they take and cost spent on manufacturing and maintenance. Basically, solar panel work using sun rays to produce electric ...

I intend to make the production of electrical energy cheaper and less polluting. My invention is a heat pipe engine. A heat pipe has two ends, a wick and a channel for the vapor to flow between the two ends shown in figure 1. A high concentration liquid saturates the wick at one end. A low concentration liquid saturates the wick at the other end. The low concentration liquid will flow through the wick into the high concentration liquid. Within the wick are two electrodes 1 and 2. Electrode 1 is located in high concentration liquid, and electrode 2 is in the low concentration liquid. When heat is applied to the end with the high concentration liquid, some of ...

Nowadays, building a new house is a difficult and expensive task for most people. The lowest price for a house is about $200 per m2 of living space, or $10,000 per house with area of 50 m2. This price is justified by the use of a large number of building materials, a variety of technologies with which these materials are processed and fixed, as well as the constant need to control the size, shape, composition, positioning, processing of structural elements.

I have worked out a solution that can reduce the cost of building a house to $45-$70 per m2 of living space. This is the result of using a new universal plastic panel for the construction of all parts ...

We are experimenting with inserting a working fluid circulation loop into the asphalt pavement of shopping center parking lots to determine if the solar energy captured by the pavement can contribute substantially to the energy demand of stores, apartment buildings, schools and other high energy use properties. Asphalt pavement captures heat at the rate of 3.6 kilowatt-hours per square meter during the summer months in the Southwestern United States. Peak temperatures can exceed 75C, which is adequate to power ORC (organic Rankine Cycle) equipment to generate electrical power for lighting, refrigeration and air-conditioning. Our task is to develop methods and materials to economically harvest the thermal energy from the pavement. To that end, we are testing asphaltic concrete mixes, ...
