After reading numerous articles about football helmet design and the comments that "there will never be a concussion-proof football helmet," I am concerned about my grandson who plays high school football. I am also an aerospace materials engineer who does not like the term "never." If we subscribed to the adage that we would "never go to the moon" we wouldn't have much of the technology that we have today.

All of the articles that I have read about football helmet design focus around making the inside of the football helmet energy absorbing and always keeping the outer "shell" hard and rigid. There have been experiments with soft layers over the outer shell but they tend to just relocate ...

"CLOCKVID-20" is a voice controlled, subtle, home assistant which helps loneliness. This encourages people in self-isolation (who are discouraged from staying at home during lockdown) to unlock their social side.

COVID-19 is the largest pandemic in over 100 years. Nearly half a million people have fell victim to Coronavirus. From this more than 3000 people have died within the past 3 months as a result. Growing at such an exponential rate, it begs the question, why did it take such a long time for authorities to take action? Local governments have been enforcing (or in some cases, advising) their citizens to quarantine themselves and participate in the act of social distancing. This is where CLOCKVID-20 can help.

RoFo MOTORCYCLE BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser. Made of lightweight food-grade quality plastic, Polyethylene (PE) , or Polypropylene (PP) . Its design allows for practical weight distribution of content, without being “jumpy”. Empty, weighs about 1 ½ pounds. Full, weighs approximately 97 fl oz. Dispenses 8, 12 fl oz cups (an eight (8) PACK), of refreshment. Roughly 5 ½ pounds. Like wearing a full-face motorcycle helmet without all of the distraction.

While worn on an individual’s head, a second person operates it by means of turning the RoFo Handlebar Motific Tap; one’s favorite beverage dispenses from out of the bottom front wheel into a glass or into another person’s mouth. Thus making the wearer a Dynamic Factor. Its design allows for ...

Underwater divers may swim in waters with limited visibility. Commercial divers may operate at depths where sunlight does not penetrate.

Sonar images could be presented on a organic led emitting diode screen which replaces the diver's normal mask. The proposed mask covers the entire view of the diver. If the diver switches off the sonar, the visor is transparent.

Graphics could be added to the much like an aircraft head up display. Critical information such as air supply or directions could be presented to the diver. If the system included and inertial navigation unit, it could significantly increase the safety of ...

Ambient Updraft Power Converter

Air moves up because of relative heat and density. Density is caused by the distance from the center of the earth and the amount of air on top of the air. The Ambient Updraft Power Converter (AUPC) uses both of these means with a vertical duct. Air is more dense at the bottom of the duct than it is at the top of the duct. The air is cooler at the bottom of the duct and warmer at the top of the duct. The density and the difference in temperature both move the air up. The AUPC also uses a duct with a larger diameter at the top and a smaller diameter at the bottom ...

Competitive sports are a large part of today’s society. Many players of all ages are at risk of injury due to the pressure of wanting to win and doing well for fans. The excitement of winning, the promise of money and a supportive fan base are great motivators at the professional level, and may cause players to be over-aggressive during game play. They forget about the risks of impact and possibility of concussion and serious injury.

The Energy Absorbing Helmet outer shell is a recently patented technology that presents a breakthrough in safety equipment technology for sports participants who are required to wear a protective helmet during play.

The patented Energy Absorbing Helmet outer shell absorbs and reduces the amount ...

With viruses being a major problem today I designed a low cost, easy to produce personal protection suit that would allow people to still move about and perform some functions without exposing themselves to the hazardous environment we have today and in the future.

I envision my design being constructed of clear vinyl in 4 basic sizes. The design can be modified to make the suit more comfortable to wear and make the adjustment with 3 inch clear vinyl tape. I specified rubber gloves and replaceable footwear. Normal cloth cloths could be worn inside or outside as desired. Medical entry pockets can be included where necessary for medical assistance. The suit being vinyl makes decontamination easy. Clean filtered air ...

This is a product designed specifically for the homeless.

It can effectively help the homeless and provide them a place to sleep and rest with the least cost. This will let them realize that society and the government have not forgotten them. In additional, we design it a temporary place, which we hope can bring them courage to integrate into this society.

All the details on how this works refer to the figures ...

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 ...

One hand replacing two-hands to perform dual fastener fastening or loosening, the “1 hand DUAL FASTENER MANIPULATION DEVICE" can be used to manipulate two fasteners with the same axis of rotation and to manipulate the fasteners of the same axis of rotation separated by the intermediate material, and the spacing distance can be freely adjusted according to the size of the separated object.

In order to successfully join the two fasteners together, one of the fasteners must be rotated in the first direction and the other fastener must be prevented from rotating or rotating in the second direction at the same time. Typically, the process is accomplished using two separate wrenches or other fastener engagement tools, where one or ...
