A fabric able to detect the presence of liquids on its surface. The Liquid Sensor is an advanced textile layer able to detect any type of liquid drip present on its surface. This sensor is stretchable, and it is possible to sew it onto other fabrics, like bed pads. The sensor is made by skin compatible materials, and does not produce irritation when in contact with skin. It is fully washable with standard washing ...

A green means of generating electricity from the pitter patter of falling rain drops and sunshine is described here. A falling rain drop strikes at least one piezoelectric element (coated with multi-layer photovoltaic flexible thin films) of a micro-grid array comprised of many piezoelectric elements. The rain drop imparts its momentum from falling to the struck coated piezoelectric element(s) through its flexible coating converting the rain drop's kinetic energy to electricity. When a piezoelectric crystal is squeezed, deformed, compressed, bent, or struck, it generates electricity via the piezoelectric effect. The piezoelectric element can be a crystal, a ceramic, PZT, a plate, a wafer, scintered crystal mixture multi-layer sandwich, a stack, or a film. Each element is coated on top ...

EriVan Bio LLC is a private biotechnology company located in Alachua, Florida that specializes in the development of exosome-based cosmeceutical products. EriVan Bio is focused on the development and clinical testing of novel, exosome-based cosmeceutical formulations:

Exosomes are nanoscale spherical vesicles that are released from cells; they are essential for cell-to-cell ...

An Outline Mitigating the Effects of Economic Competition on Homeless Mothers

Abstract:
The “Maternal Cooperative” is an effort to better support high risk single homeless mothers and infants in the first few years of bonding and development. This effort is based on creating a new understanding of the origins and adverse effects of individual level economic competition that undermines the general stability of these particular mothers. With this understanding we move to develop a short-term solution that fully supports these mothers and infants during this very critical financial and infant bonding phase.

Premise:
‘Economic Competition’ is the competition for money and resources. In this context we focus on the competition over limited funds and resources on an individual ...

Current technologies for additive manufacturing (3D printing) are mostly developed for on-earth environment which relies on the gravitational force, and any vibration/disturbance must be minimized. However, in many situations, e.g., on space missions where gravity is close to zero, while on air/sea missions (on-board of aeroplanes/ships) where random vibration is unavoidable, it is hard to use liquid/powder form of raw materials in 3D printing. Even for volumetric additive manufacturing via tomographic reconstruction, good accuracy in cross-linking of polymeric liquid is a challenge, if the printing platform is unstable (such as, on air/sea missions).

Here, we propose a novel technology for rapid volumetric additive manufacturing from one single piece of solid (instead of powder/liquid) polymer, in which cross-linking is carried ...

Reduction of drag and boosting of lift to drag ratio is of paramount importance to maximize flight efficiency. Body shape has a major role in producing drag. In order to reduce drag and increase lift to drag ratio I have successfully developed a new concept after spending several years to research. The concept is described below.

Using cycloid profile sideward acceleration smoothly changes from zero to peak then to zero so there would not by sudden impulses or momentum changes of fluid and sideward velocity of fluid smoothly changes from zero to peak and the to zero. This causes what’s known as 3D relieving, for example a cylinder has smooth up (y+) and down (y-) flow during a passage through ...

As it becomes apparent that the COVID-19 virus can be exhaled as an airborne pathogen, it becomes equally important to protect oneself from inhaling the virus in its bioaerosol form.

Proposed is a downdraft visor, the device worn as shown provides a steady downdraft stream of filtered air across the wearer’s face. A rechargeable battery unit powers mini-fans to draw in ambient air through a milli-pore HEPA filtration cartridge directing it downward in front of the wearer’s face.

The constant stream of filtered air directed across the front of the wearer's face at 50ft/min provides sufficient airflow to prevent exhaled aerosolized droplets of the COVID-19 virus entering the user’s airways via the nose and mouth into the lungs.

The device can be ...

Standard N95 masks and similar filter-based face masks can’t block 100% of virus because these pathogens are simply too small. N95 filter porosity is typically on the order of 0.3 μm where SARS-CoV-2 and similar coronaviruses are roughly half that diameter (~0.12 μm). Exhaled virions in droplets may be effectively trapped in the filter, but once dry, viable virus can freely pass, risking infection of healthcare workers and other’s relying upon such respirator masks.

The VirionMask™ (or Pinocchio respirator – Project working name) is simple in. UV light denatures or kills pathogens. VirionMask provides for high volume, low restriction breathing via a mirrored inside surface airway tube. Inside the airway tube is a UV laser light source, delivered via ...

What is HyALTA® - A hybrid lighter-than-air (LTA) and flying wing air vehicle that allows a single vehicle to provide the simplicity, vertical heavy lift, and extended efficient station keeping capabilities of an LTA with the high glide ratio (>40:1) and velocity (up to 200 kts.) of low coefficient of drag flying wings. This patented design (U.S. Patents 9,623,954/10,287,000/10.377,465/10,532,803 and other patents pending) is unlike other conventional or LTA aircraft.

How Does it Work – HyALTA® delivers these capabilities through an elegantly simple minimalist internal structure that morphs to provide extensive combinations of aspect ratio, chord thickness and top and bottom camber to achieve a wide range of aerodynamic and buoyant lift configurations. A gas impermeable inner bag provides ...
