Clean solar cooker as replacement for hazardous log-fires

Until today more than 3 billion people rely on open fires for cooking. Their cook stoves are predominantly based on burning firewood or charcoal and used indoors without sufficient ventilation [IEA (2016). "World Energy Outlook 2016"]. According to the WHO, the exposure to these dangerous fire smokes is linked to 4 million premature deaths each year, primarily among women and children [https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/household-air-pollution-and-health]. Moreover, the collection of firewood demands up to 8 working hours per day and the deforestation damages the environment extensively. Some efforts are made to switch to cleaner cook stoves based on natural gas. While this would reduce the exposure to health risks, CO2 emissions and financial dependency on ...

People all over the world are afraid of catching diseases and started using keys, lighters and other objects to push buttons in public places.

In order to prevent the spread of diseases via elevator buttons I suggest replacing them with a new type of switch that uses UV-C light to automatically sterilize its surface after every use. UV-C light source is hidden inside the casing and thus harmless to the user.

This switch could potentially be used to replace any kinds of push buttons, switches and ...

COVIshiild™ is an anti-germ protective appliance based on redirecting the airflow at inhaling, exhaling, speaking, coughing and sneezing to reduce risk of acquiring the germs by user and others. It aims to substitute textile facial masks at various infection outbreaks (like COVID-19) when governments require or suggest an anti-germ face protection, however belittling its disadvantages: worsen breath, sweat on face or even claustrophobic feelings of some people. COVIshiild™ improves this common protection – it’s NOT designed for hospital usage, surgeries etc.

COVIshiild™ consists of the head device, pump, battery and air tube. The head device is kind of plastic U-shaped ring worn around back of head and ears (the same way as audio headset) with left and right little ...

This project is about building a safe helmet for NFL players that will help them prevent concussion while playing the game. This is done by using combination of material science with air principle to transfer and distribute the impact force from one point of the helmet to the entire part in order to absorb the impact force. This new concept helmet design has three layers the upper layer, the middle layer and the inner layer. The upper layer is made up of standard rigid hard material to give the first protection for the players. The inner layer is made up of soft rigid material to give comfort and protection for the head of the players. The edge of the ...

The main problem when people drink alcohol is over drinking situation. So, the main question should be how can we save people from over drinking in a very cool way that they do not reject it? This project answers this problem by providing a cool product that can limit the amount of alcohol a person can drink before the person reaches critical alcoholic overdose.

This project is about building a Puzzle Bottle that is used to drink alcohol that makes end users self aware on their mental status while consuming alcohol. The main objective of this product is making people who is drinking alcohol solve small puzzle to open their alcohol bottle to drink every time they order another ...

This idea describes a system for someone to shop for clothing from home while getting as close to an in-store experience as possible. The advantages of physically being in a clothing store are that you can see and feel the products and try them on to see if they fit and look good.

The customer would install an app and then calibrate the camera on their smartphone by taking pictures of a standard sized item, such as a dollar bill, from a variety of distances and poses. The software would go through appropriate transforms to calculate effective focal length and lens distortion, storing those corrections on the phone.

The customer would then establish a payment method through a variety of online ...

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 ...

We are Korean company established in 2002 and we had patented our technology to make silver foam in 2006.

There is ample evidence that instruction in spatial visualization skills is effective in improving outcomes for STEM education. Research conducted since the early 1990s has proven that spatial visualization practice and training lead to better grades and improves retention and graduation rates in general for all students.

With this goal in mind, I invented a new method based on a new and unique approach. The method was further developed as a new type of game for educational purposes. It uses 3D solids representing different images when viewed from different angles. The images are the contours of letters of the alphabet, numbers, and plane geometric figures. The viewer must identify the contours by manipulating the solids to observe what is ...
