I have been reading and hearing that the United States is very short on hospital rooms where people infected with this new virus can be isolated to prevent the spreading .

I think I have a very simple solution that can be produced inexpensively, that could turn large open areas into a great many isolation rooms.

I propose making small clear vinyl rooms supported by a pipe structure with an isolated and filtered air supply.

The room would have an airlock setup to help contain any contaminate and it could also serve as a decontamination chamber for people entering or leaving, by providing a shower and a drain. The drain could be simplified by using a wet/dry vac with improved ...

The cost of hospital ventilators has become cost prohibitive during our present Corona virus epIdemiic as hospitals, states, and countries compete to buy them from the limited supply available in todays’s market place. A safe emergency replacement for ventilators is here suggested. A compressor and accumulator feeds pressurized filtered oxygen or air to a multi electro-pneumatic valve array. A computer controller controls the variable sized opening of each valve controlling each valve’s own variable volume, pressure, and flow rate of oxygen. Oxygen is driven through an ultraviolet sterilizer then distributing the oxygen to many patient masks. An electro-pneumatic valve, as distinguished from, but very similar to, an electro-fluidic valve, can not only turn on the flow of a gas, ...

LED lighting technology is already prevalent in the Automotive Industry, taking on increasingly prominent aesthetic design as well as safety roles. Significantly increased lighting output, required to meet tightening insurance industry requirements, coupled with a proliferation of illuminated lamp features has already led to a top Tier-1 Lighting supplier executive to proclaim “Lamp weight has gone up exponentially!” during a recent interview. Current plastic-based lamp housing technology is at the limit of its capabilities, which augurs poorly for the integration of the myriad of sensors required for Automated Vehicles (AVs) given the considerably heat generated by all these devises.

Weight, Size and Cost continue to increase while OEMs require significantly lighter, more compact, cost-effective solutions in order to meet ...

One out of three people in the world is exposed to earthquakes, and the number of people living in seismic areas increased by 93% in the past 40 years - 2.7 billion in 2018. Cities face a growing pressure from global challenge on resilience of structures and infrastructures to catastrophic natural events.

Seismic isolation is the most used technology to mitigate vibrations to buildings. This technology uses rubber-steel composite interposed between the structure and the foundations to divert the energy of the earthquake and to minimize interstory drift and floor accelerations of the above structure. However, while steel is needed to reinforce the composite, its presence limits the use of base isolation technology to strategic buildings such as hospitals ...

Americans are eating themselves to death. On average, it takes $7 dollars to get a single apple from the grove of its birth to the bodega shelf in New York. The people that need the food the most cannot get it, and instead sustain themselves on packages designed more for shelf life than for human life. Heart disease, fatigue, obesity, and diabetes have all been connected to this, a statistic backed up by recent mortality rates in the poorer neighborhoods due to COVID-19.

With the number of both farms and farmers declining each year, we need to do better. Three technologies exist today, that if combined, would revolutionize health.

Container Farming - Aquaponics provides a closed-loop, environment free of ...

The new processor pushes back boundaries with outstanding performance and extraordinary efficiency. Its number crunching qualities are undisputed. The 1 kHz processor (eight bit wide) delivers 18,000 petaflops of calculation. It is a system of using decimal or higher number system in processor; I also designed a sample circuit for representing decimal system electronically using transistors, which was a major hurdle in designing such a system.

This is a new computer system that can provide enormous processing power, such that it will provide tomorrow’s supercomputing power on today’s handheld devices. The new concept is based on principles of analogue amplification and programming of computer is simple and similar to digital computers. The high-tech invention is called ‘Hinary Processor’ and it ...

A single-handle water faucet comprises a hollow base which mounts on the top-back portion of a sink, a valve assembly, a handle for controlling the flow rate of water and the temperature mix of water, a spout securely attached to the valve assembly and extending upwardly from the top end of the valve assembly, and a nozzle for discharging water. The handle is positioned below the nozzle so that the water discharged from the nozzle can be directed to the handle and sprayed onto the handle by hand in order to facilitate the cleaning of the handle during a handwash session. In one embodiment of the invention, the handle is axially and longitudinally rotatable. In another embodiment of the ...

Improve the power to weight ratio, efficiency and increase the life of motor and alternator is of paramount importance in design. In order to do that; I have successfully developed a new concept electric machine that provides up to 50% improvement in power to weight ratio and efficiency, after spending several years to research. Flexidrive (Electric motor) that will give torque on demand while accelerating and power on demand while cruising and Electric load on demand while regenerative breaking.

In this concept one armature is inside the stator as in normal motor but another armature is on outside the stator. Stator winding is common for both armature windings. Inside armature act as alternator and outside armature act as motor ...

Many families across the world use open fires fueled by wood, charcoal or sometimes even plastic as their fire source for cooking, temperature regulation and other reasons. When this is done indoors it can be significantly damaging to health, especially for youth or elderly. For this reason most houses has a chimney or vent for the carbon to get out in the atmosphere. This will add more carbon to the environment that will increase the temperature of the earth on a cumulative standard while making the peoples safe from immediate health risk caused by carbon inhalation. But there are natural balance mechanisms that reduce the amount of carbon from the surrounding like plants but these natural counter balance mechanisms ...

The electronic calibration display is an electronic device that replaces a calibration sticker and adds the functionality of visual and audio aids to notify the user of approaching or past due calibrations.

How it works:
The onboard microprocessor is programmed through the Micro USB port with the current calibration information which includes the 1) date of calibration, 2) the next calibration due date, 3) identification of the calibration technician, and 4) any restrictions of the calibration.
After the information is downloaded to the device, the onboard program displays the information along with a green light.
A continuous loop will check the current date supplied by the real time clock against the calibration due date 100 times per second.
