Every year thousands of families or friends take their vacations together, many of them take their cars and go for a walk or adventure. While driving their cars, many cannot communicate with each other unless they have bluethoth service or park to do so.
The idea that I have would allow communication between these families or friends who go on vacation together in their cars to remain connected, if they wish, throughout the duration of their trip.

Nowadays all automobiles come with radio and sound equipment included, what I propose is that these equipments be modified so that they become radio receivers and transmitters.

Each automobile would use its registration number as a communication channel and would have the ...

Story Behind FLEXcon Fit Test Hood

At FLEXcon we pride ourselves on the relationships we have with our surrounding communities. Towards the end of April, a local hospital received new face masks which required fit testing on the employees who were going to be wearing them to protect themselves and their patients. The test requires each employee to put on a face mask, and then put on a reusable test hood. One physician was very uncomfortable wearing a hood previously worn by peers who may have been exposed to patients sick with COVID-19. The hospital reached out to FLEXcon to ask if we might be able to come up with a single-use solution. Within 24 hours we were able ...

Present day energy such as fossil fuels, nuclear,solar, wind and others are either to dangerous or not dependable or what not. The idea I have come up with is "energy distancing". Build a thermonuclear generator, using the used fuel pellets from power plants, in a 1'x6' steel cylinder, to generate, at minimum, 5K electricity.

Drill a 30' well in the backyard by the utility entrance. Place the generator capsule at the bottom of the well and connect it to the utility cable with a proper interface. The generator buried in your yard will supply you with continuous power. Peak power will be supplied by the grid. If the grid is disabled by weather or accident you will still have ...

Government mandates regarding COVID-19 abatement strategies are forcing companies to scramble to find ways to avoid fines and even worse local outbreaks. In this new age, documentation and data is going to separate companies who survive and those who struggle.

Ergonomics International’s mobile compatible software provides employers with the tools necessary to identify at risk employees, track those who are immune to COVID-19 or those who may be potential carriers. Employees can log their temperature at home on the mobile compatible software before potentially exposing coworkers to the illness. The employees baseline temperature, whether taken at home or the workplace, is logged into the database for trending. This allows companies to identify upward trending temperatures as a leading indicator ...

Patented method of safely straightening bent automobile wheels. The SEMA award winning process employs simultaneous dual-axis hydraulic pressure to gently relieve the molecular strain in the metal at the bend site. The process spreads the yielding forces over a wider area allowing for the minimal application of heat. Too much heat will alter the physical and chemical properties of the metal and can damage the heat treat level. Scientific testing, reported in SAE Technical Paper 2016-01-1573, revealed that driving on a bent wheel will eventually result in a crack, which causes low air pressure, a dangerous driving hazard. NHTSA reports over 11,000 catastrophic blowouts annually are caused by low tire pressure. If properly done, wheel straightening is safe and ...

Automotive suspension systems utilizing shock-absorber components are indispensable parts of electrical automobiles relying on rechargeable battery power. Suspension systems are a good source of kinetic energy. In particular, commonly used hydraulic shock-absorbing components contain mechanically closed-loop and fluctuating pressure environment with high frequency force variations subject to vehicle weight, vehicle velocity, tire and road conditions.

Kinetic energy generated by electrical vehicle hydraulic shock absorbers can be harvested with high-efficiency and converted to DC voltage output within the shock-absorbers and used to recharge vehicle batteries or for other casual vehicle consumption. This proposal involves a method which does not use moving-parts and is easily adaptable to the existing shock-absorber manufacturing processes. Depicting the general concept in illustration provided(courtesy of Internet), ...

Imagine describing a pathologic process … with just arrays of numbers.

Imagine not needing ionizing radiation, test tubes, special cartridges, or consumable reagents. Recall how COVID-19 testing has been throttled due to rate-limiting supplies of a special new reagent for the new disease.

As a thought experiment, let us apply the "modern medical approach" (actually 50-year old tradition) to determining what the stars are made of. One would need to obtain a specimen from the star and transport it in a specialized container to a facility capable of running that "lab test." The results of that test inevitably lead to more samples being taken out of the stellar patient for more destructive testing, consuming more tubes and cartridges along ...

The purpose of the work: to increase and improve the quality of parts and assembly of gearboxes of vehicles, reduce the labor intensity and cost of manufacturing the gearbox, increase productivity in the assembly operation.

Project objective. To elaborate: the base table for mounting of all equipment, drive rotation, the bearing support for clamping the chuck, spindle assembly for securing the test site, stand for securing the device to control torque, the system of fixing the device to control the friction torque from the test duplexity bearing assemblies, the system of control number of revolution of the spindle.

Preload is one of the most important parameters that determine the reliability and durability of any structure. Preload is created during ...

This face mask will disable or kill pathogens, including viruses, with UV-C light.

The ordinary N-95 and other protective masks only try to filter out pathogens, as if they were simple particulate matter. Unfortunately, even a small percentage of a pathogen getting thru could be enough to infect you, so 95% may not be effective protection.

The '95' in the N-95 classification refers to its filtering efficiency. Plus it's for particles above 300 nanometers. The coronavirus is only 100nm, so has a good chance of making it through the material without getting snagged in the fibers.

The pictured prototype is the core unit in development. It will be incorporated into a formable-fit face mask with either a built in ...

Newgen Gas is a National University of Singapore Spin-off Company with a revolutionary natural gas storage technology. Our innovative process, Solidified Natural Gas (SNG), allows for safe, cost-effective and long term storage of natural gas. We store natural gas in the form of ice-like compounds, gas hydrates. SNG can store these hydrates at standard pressure and up to 0 oC. It eliminates the risks associated with cryogenic handling of liquefied natural gas (LNG at -163 oC) or high-pressure hazards of compressed natural gas (CNG at > 200 atmospheres). SNG’s capital cost is targeted at less than 50 % of the cost of comparable LNG storage tanks, current industrial benchmarks. Our potential customers are NG producers, Power Gencos, Distributors, Industrial ...
