Graphene patches: to treat diabetes, goodbye to needles. Approximately 9% of adults worldwide have diabetes. That is, 9% of the world population has to be punctured finger several times a day to measure their glucose levels. Doing so is painful, tired and often logistically difficult; It does not have major health consequences in the long term (more than one and a half million diabetics die each year from such complications). This has meant that, for years, researchers have been looking for better techniques for controlling glucose. A South Korean group led by Kim Dae-Hyeong, just published in Nature Nanotechnology have created a patch of graphene that can not only monitor the blood sugar level, but administering treatment as necessary. Finally, graphene gives us good news. Although we all know because graphene is the 'material of the future' (strong and flexible as none), the truth is that certain properties have made use features to detect changes in glucose levels difficult. Therefore, the device of Korean researchers also uses a gold mesh surrounding the star material. Once set, the device captures the sweat on the skin and sensors in real time studying changes in the pH and temperature of sweat; things that indicate a high level of sugar. These readings are transmitted wirelessly to the mobile device to allow permanent control. By detecting high levels of sugar, the patch exposes a microneedles that release metformin (a drug used antidiabetic) in the skin. According to initial tests, the enforcement mechanism is so subtle that users are not even to notice. Unquestionably, these devices radically change our way of treating diabetes. We must not forget that chronic diseases are baited with those who have less resources and opportunities (80% of deaths are concentrated in poor countries and lower classes). Simplifying the process control and treatment of these diseases perhaps we can prevent diabetes by 2030 is the seventh leading cause of death in the world, such as WHO predicts. #GraphenePatches #diabetes #Medicine #Health #glucose #South #Nanotechnology #sugarLevel #graphene #PHsweat #WHO #OMS,#temperatureSweat #mobileDevice #Korean #transmitted #wirelessly

Hyperion a striking vertical city: a solution to the environmental problem and housing. now comes a new and interesting project focused on India, where in addition to being sustainable, seeks to be a single ecosystem. Created by the architectural firm Vincent Callebaut Belgian, Hyperion's, named in homage to the world's tallest living tree, it is a project of sustainable agro-ecosystem can withstand environmental changes caused by climate change. The format presented is a vertical city garden created by six towers, each with a wooden structure, which is thought to obtain forest Delhi. Each tower has 36 floors to a height of 116 meters, the project objective is to create a city that combines urban nature and farming on a small scale, this to protect the environment and diversity. And decentralize energy and food deindustrialization. Each tower will be connected by suspended bridges, they will be equipped with high vegetation, collection systems rain, areas composting areas for fish, individual for each family maintains a vegetable balconies, specialized gases, in addition to small farms with livestock in the bases of the towers. Of course it will recycling systems, solar cells and the design of the corridors will allow wind flow to drive turbines. The foundations of the city will be in concrete and steel to strengthen it, will have apartments of various sizes and furniture will be made from natural and recycled materials. The project has already been approved by the city and the study is scheduled to complete construction in 2022, ready for an opening near 2025. This wonderful complex, it will be located in Jaypee Sports City in Greater Noida, near New Delhi, and will be the first of its kind. Now hopefully the concepts shown really like it, because they are really spectacular. #verticalcity #Toronto #sustainable #Hongkong #AmazingFact #Hyperion #Oracle #Marvel #jobs #poster #MarvelHyperionposter #job #EPM #developers #consultants #hiring

Toshiba creates a battery: for cars that offers 320km of autonomy in 6 minutes of charge. One of the biggest problems of electric cars could be history thanks to a new Toshiba battery. The Japanese company has just presented a battery for electric cars that in only 6 minutes of loading offers 320 kilometers of use. The new generation of Toshiba car batteries, based on Ion-Lithium, is focused on changing one of the most well-known drawbacks of electric cars, charging times. Although companies like Tesla have managed to improve the speed of charge of their batteries, it still takes about an hour to have most of the battery charged. Depending on the type of electric car or even the type of battery that is selected, these vehicles could take several hours to charge. This is not an option for most people who come from a combustion car. Suzuki Solio Hybrid, one of the few electric cars that uses Toshiba batteries. Photo: Suzuki Motors. The new Toshiba battery offers high energy density and reduced charge time due to the use of titanium oxide doped with niobium. This element is also used in solar panels or even in superconducting images, such as those used in particle accelerators. After 5,000 charge / discharge cycles it maintains 90% of its original capacity. The battery is not yet in production, has been tested a prototype with a capacity of 50Ah, hence has extrapolated the results to what may be the future of this technology charging. Perhaps one of the most important details for the future of this battery is that after 5,000 charge / discharge cycles, it maintains 90% of its original capacity. This will result in an electric car would not have to change battery after a few years of use, even end up with rental programs. Toshiba hopes to start mass-producing this battery in 2019. For now only the electric cars of Suzuki and Mitsubishi use their batteries, also some brands of buses. Toshiba faces companies like Panasonic, associated with Tesla, which is nowadays one of the most important vehicle companies in the world.

Bike Washing Machine: stationary bike washing clothes. Under a project of industrial design and engineering, a group of students from the University Dalian Nationalities in China have created an interesting device that links the sometimes tedious task of washing clothes and doing exercise using a stationary bike. The project is called BWM Bike Washing Machine, and combines two seemingly unrelated activities in a single device. This bike instead of front wheel have a small drum washing machine, which has a capacity of up to five kilograms of clothing complete with drainage system, the only detail is that we have to carry clothes, water and detergent addition softener. The idea is EXTREMELY simple, as the drum rotates while pedaling the bike, but also has an additional feature, since pedaling, the movement will generate energy, which can be used to charge devices, feeding a screen that shows our progress in bike, or store it for later. This is just a student project and so far there are no plans to create a commercial product, but its creators are convinced that some companies may be interested in developing it as well as improve and integrate new elements and features. #BikeWashingMachine #BWM #車椅子 #派遣 #武蔵小杉 #横浜 #川崎 #ベンツ #データセンター #WFG #SQL #IPv6

Green building: Consume less energy and absorb pollution. Within the world of design and architecture, for several years it has sought to find the key that achieves buildings bring us truly "smart", where its function is not only consume less energy and recycle the existing, but also to add value the environment within the image that they bring to the landscape as well as an active tool in cleaning up the air we breathe. In mid-2015, it was presented at the World's Fair of Milan a building concept that thanks to the materials with which it is built, would be able to "eat the smog", the first building of its kind to be made of concrete designed to clear the air. A few days ago, he called Palazzo Italia has finally opened its doors. The magic of this building is its facade of 9,000 square meters covering the windows and the structure, which is made of a material that mixes cement and titanium dioxide, which upon contact with light, capturing the various oxide compounds nitrogen from the air and becomes a kind of salt that is isolated in the surface. When it rains, the salt dissolves and the facade is cleaned. But that's not all, the building is designed to consume up to 40% less energy than a conventional building of the same size, it does not produce emissions because their windows make use of photovoltaic glass, which is able to feed just over 11,000 LED bulbs. In addition to its structure it was constructed of photocatalytic cement that can be cleaned only with sunlight. #greenbuilding #LEED #sustainability #green #sustainable #eco #architecture #news #renewableenergy #in #construction

IBM artificial brain: neurons create the first artificial phase change. IBM has managed to implement a system of 500 artificial neurons with phase change technology they want to simulate the performance of organic brains. In a way that never before had gotten. For years, scientists have tried to imitate the versatile computing capabilities of neurons. Today, it seems that is the only way to take a step beyond artificial intelligence projects that are underway and that promise to change the world. They have been taking small steps. IBM recently managed to create memory chips to a phase change similar to the current RAM price. The phase shift is a technology that we've been talking a long time that stores data in non-volatile, ie not disappear when you turn off the device that reside in the structure and in its relational pattern. The information resides in different firing patterns of neurons and new connections are developed. Therefore, the challenge is to combine very complex nanostructures with an acceptable energy consumption, common materials and stochastic behavior. IBM new neurons try to imitate not only the operation of natural cells, but its structure. Like them, have dendrites entrance, membrane, soma and axon output. To replace the membrane, artificial neurons use a GST cells, so named because they are made of antimony, germanium and tellurium. This material turns out to be the main active component of rewritable optical disks and is what allows the phase change. #artificialbrain #NeuralNetworks #ArtificialIntelligence #tech #DataScience #nanotechnology #Healthcare #science #technology #artificial #neurons #AbanTech #research #brain #neuroscience #theory #TACTT #physics #new #culture #conspiracy

OPod Tube House: concrete micro house is a pipe dream
 
01:31
Is a micro house made from concrete water piping that measures just 2.5 m (8.2 ft) in diameter. Its snug interior features an apartment-style layout suitable for one or two people. Resembling Mexico's Tubohotel, which we covered back in 2011, the OPod was designed with a view to mitigating Hong Kong's housing shortages, which have given rise to the area's infamous "coffin cubicles." Access is gained by a glazed door and inside it comprises a total floorspace of just 100 sq ft (9.29 sq m). A second section of concrete pipe is connected at the rear to provide a kitchenette and small bathroom with shower and toilet. James Law Cybertecture envisions the OPod being installed in urban areas unsuitable for standard construction, such as narrow alleyways between buildings, for example. Multiple units could be stacked atop each other, with simple metal stairways providing access. The firm has made some mockups showing how such a development may take shape. The South China Morning Post reports that each OPod will cost around US$15,000 (not including the cost of land, presumably) and be used to house people temporarily while they await larger longterm accommodation.

China An-225: not only wants to resurrect the biggest plane, but think of a whole fleet. The An-225 was the largest aircraft built according to the records (talking-not military and civilians not dealt with a project), as recalled in Popular Science where echoes the intention of resurrecting the project are made, or more well renew it and give it more importance. The title of course it beats talking pulse measures 84 meters in length (from nose to tail) and 88 meters from wing to wing. A beast of 640 tons and six engines. Besides the record size, the An-225 also carries the heaviest load, 250 tons (253,820 kilograms) and the heaviest single element loaded generator 189,980 kilograms. Although we saw her last flight a few months ago as we remembered the beginning, the first was in 1988 a space aircraft carrying 105 tons. the idea that the Chinese have is to create a transport network with these aircraft so that they can be moved from one side to another very heavy loads or large elements (such as generator we were saying, machinery, construction elements, etc.). A project whose first phase consists in having a second An-225 in 2019 and later cover a second in which takes China technology engines, namely engines Progress D-18T (or Lotarev D-18T), designed to large aircraft (also of Ukrainian origin). The new An-225 is already something other than above, since the cargo door is on the back (and we saw that in the An-225 nose opened to introduce the charge, being something quite striking). At present construction it is around the 60-70%, so it is plausible goal three years (nearly two) view, with the intention that the first flights were already made in 2020. Here the military use is also contemplated, although not per se a military plane. AICC for the An-225 is a very suitable option for transporting military equipment, as can load helicopters, weapons and even tanks. He is under construction at the moment the second plane to transport large, long-term we will see if manage to create this fleet for large intercontinental transport. #ChinaAn225 #China #An225 #an225 #Antonov #kul #Antonov225 #avgeek #Perth #hyperlapse #Mriya #plane #MYairportsaircraft #KLIA #Abantech

Huge Pipe futuristic: purify sea water with solar energy. In the coming years we will be facing a crisis due to the scarcity of drinking water, this has led to several countries and companies are trying to implement new developments to help mitigate these problems. The state of California is one of the most active on this issue, launching various calls for companies believe related to clean energy generation and purification of water for human consumption methods. Now as part of the 2016 edition of the contest LAGI Land Art Generator Initiative, they are revealing the finalists who would receive support to realize your project. Hence the case of The Pipe, a large silver tube will be able to desalinate water stands. Since 2008 the objective of LAGI has been to create sustainable solutions that in turn improve the urban landscape, which has become a challenge, since it must not only be functional but also visually appealing and bring something to the environment of cities, as if it were a permanent art installation. One of the finalists of the edition 2016 of the contest is The Pipe, a project created by Canadians Khalili Engineers, specialists in processing plants for food industries, beverage and packaging, consisting of a like structure tube will be manufactured silver and aluminum. #infinitefireinc #ThePipe #California #Solar #AbanTech #technology #LAGI2106 #SantaMonica #Atlantic #SolarEnergy

Toyota Corolla 2018 and 2019: renovated new electronic systems LED lights and lots of technology. Toyota renewed the Corolla The changes of the model are varied and begin with aesthetics, the first thing that draws attention in the images. The most important innovations are in the front, sector that received brand new grill, bumpers and optics, which can count on LED lights. The exterior renovation is completed with new rear lights, with LED lights and a chrome plated, and with the new alloy wheels with 17 inches and diamonds in some versions. Sports style called XRS, which had been available in the previous generation. It differs from the rest of the range by the presence of front, side and rear skirts, as well as a rear spoiler and a chrome exhaust. The 1.8-liter VVT-i twin-engine engine with 139 hp and 174 Nm of torque, which is currently sold locally at 140 hp, in addition to the 2.0 VVT-i dual with 143 hp and 190 Nm. On the other hand, the gearboxes are the two known: manual with six gears and automatic CVT with seven speeds. The Corolla is also evolved in the interior, where it has a new multimedia center with 7 "screen similar to the Hilux and SW4, brand new automatic climate control of one or two zones, renewed instrument panel and new shaped side air vents circular. The mechanics also includes a new calibration of the front and rear shock absorbers and a clearance of the body from the ground that has been increased by 5 millimeters. The Corolla 2018 is also notable for having incorporated electronic stability and traction control systems, which are present in all versions, which also have help on slopes and seven front airbags, side curtain and driver knees .

Micra pacemaker: the smallest pacemaker in the world has been approved for mass sale. In late 2013, the company Medtronic showed a device that could revolutionize the lives of patients with heart rhythm disorders. The device was known as Micra and was listed as "the world's smallest pacemaker," which among its benefits, besides being extremely small, did not require surgery for implantation. Now just over two years after announcing Micra has been approved by the FDA in the United States, so its sales will begin in the coming weeks for all patients requiring a pacemaker, but certainly the most important, is which it will be covered by most health insurance plans in the country. Micra is an amazing solution using transcatheter technology, so no surgery, open for implantation heart, this is done by injecting a tube 105cm in the vein of the patient's groin and installing the device will stay in the right ventricle. This will prevent the use of cables and possible infections in the surrounding tissue, because Micra has only 24 millimeters long and remains hooked by heart small teeth, emitting at all times electrical impulses to keep the heart beating, besides being able to adjust these depending on patient activity impulses. Its battery offers a range of up to 10 years and the first tests made to a group of 719 patients, 98% underwent right heart rate and only 7% had major complications after a few months, and it is thanks to these good results , which it received FDA approval. Because Micra is implanted near the lower chamber of the heart, it can not be used in patients who need stimulation in both the lower chamber and the upper, plus they can not be used in people who already have implanted another device, or well, have problems of obesity. #chipEpileptic #epileptic #marijuana #epilepsy #cannabis #cbd #seizures #MME #Missing #HelpDaisy #Clophill #Bedfordshire

Taiwan Tao Zhu Yin Yuan: Building that reduces excess carbon dioxide by feeding on it.  The city where it is rising is Taipei, in the XinYin district, and the tower is called Tao Zhu Yin Yuan. The building, in fact, will end up being rather low, with about 92 meters of height, especially considering that shares city with one of the highest of the world, the tower Taipei 101 of about 508 meters of height. But what makes the building special is its design and structure, given that in addition to presenting a helical design between the walls and floors of its 40 apartments will house some 23,000 trees and shrubs. These plants will be the ones that do the cleaning function that is planned, that is, the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. In Business Insider talk with Callebut and detail that the double-helix design is inspired by a DNA strand is a double helix and it is estimated that the plants will absorb 130 tons of carbon dioxide a year, which according to the architect is equivalent to 27 Cars. As for the design and arrangement of elements, the building will have glazed floors and there will also be plants inside the tower, as well as swimming pool and gymnasium and multi-level underground parking. In addition, as explained in CTBUH will integrate a rainwater recycling system, energy-efficient lifts, solar panels and a system that according to the climate can save energy. This initiative is novel, but not the only one in terms of buildings that eat pollution. A few months ago we talked about a building that did not resort to plants to eat the smog, but to the materials themselves. Thus, the facade of 9,000 meters of the Palazzo Italia is made of a mixture of cement and titanium dioxide that on contact with the light captures the different nitrogen oxides in the air resulting in a type of salt that is isolated on the surface and when it rains it dissolves. Regarding the tower Tao Zhu Yin Yuan, the date of completion of the moment remains unchanged and the plan is to see this tower completed in September of this year. We do not know if it will be possible to reduce the concentration of carbon dioxide up to that point, but the initiative is at least an extra dose of oxygen and without requiring the latest technologies or depending on their efficiency. #Taiwan #TaoZhuYInYuan #Pollution #HelicalDesign #AbanTech #architecture #ecology #nature #TaiwanTaoZhuYinYuan #Taipei #design #structure #technolog #GlazedFloors #SwimmingPool #gym #UndergroundParking #SolarPanels #EnergySavingSystem #building #OxidesNitrogen

Oticon Opn: This instrument evolves IoT device with internet access and support IFTTT. For several decades the endaural or-ear hearing instrument is a device widely used by people with hearing weaknesses and even deafness, but it's funny how over the years the design and operation has remained almost intact, with slight improvements to a decrease in size and better sound amplification, but it is basically the same device. Now the London-based company Oticon has taken this design and adapted it new elements to make it all a connected device, a device that not only help with hearing people, but also alert to possible dangers through recipes based on IFTTT thanks to your Internet connection. OPN is a hearing aid equipped with technology TwinLink, developed by Oticon, which will have the same battery life without sacrificing size, but with WiFi connectivity, which will serve to set up alerts and notifications easily automated using recipes Steam's summer or connections direct IoT devices. By making this setting, the user can know when someone is ringing the bell, detect movements from a security camera, if the baby monitor is activated when a smoke alarm is ringing, when you get a notification to the smartphone, and even may answer calls right from the headset, as well as many other tasks depending on the needs. Another important in this hearing OPN improvement is that it has an electronic microphone capable of analyzing the sound up to 100 times per second according to its creators, which allow the person to identify the sources of sound, eliminating background noise so you can continue conversations between several people even in noisy places. Oticon has not mentioned so far price or availability, nor the full specifications of this hearing are known, something that could help us understand how all tasks that promises to work, so I just stayed with what he says the company expects to have more information. #OticonOpn #OpenSoundNavigator #audpeeps #oticon #hearingaids #Toronto #timeforabeer #SpeechGuardE #pluspower #NewHorizons #medicine #Louisvillehearingcenters #kundeogco #IoT

Mirrow provocator: These Russians intend to put four people in a microcar. We're seeing vehicles normally offer seats for two occupants, and leave behind us a small room for cargo. For in the same field in which cars of less than 3 meters long, the Russian concept Mirrow provocator, wants to prove that you can do different things move. That said, the car is particularly small in terms of its length, 2.7 meters long, but it is quite high and wide, and that's where you get to play with space for four seats. It is as wide as a Mercedes GLE - almost two meters - a large SUV. The other striking point is the height exceeds two meters. We understand that there is a performance based car, you want to fool the user taking curves at high speed, here the important thing was to find ways to find room for four occupants. A practical car for the city. The changes also affect the doors, so little length no sense to look for a traditional opening system with four units opening in the same direction. Here are just a central gate at the rear of the car, and as a security method, on the sides there are large windows also give access to the interior. Like other proposals that are appearing on the market - Gordon Murray T.27 - bet for two powertrains: a more traditional based on a 1.5 turbocharged diesel capable of running at 100 kilometers per hour in 8.7 seconds motor. Another fully electric with a range of 400 kilometers usage. This unique square and results in high space for four occupants, but also to load in the central area, as seen in the image that recreates the vehicle from above. When park it, it makes us do face that side, it is almost a square. Nothing serious on pricing or availability, for this we have to wait to advance the year. If we know that will be a vehicle with a range of wide prices, as there will be very basic versions, and other very luxurious, more technology. It is interesting to know that external panels can be changed to play with the designs, and will be built with recycled polymers (occupy 50% of the surface). #MirrowProvocator #Vehicles #MirrowProvocatorCars #Russians #microcar #MercedesGLE,

A submarine and floating tunnel: The surprising proposal to reduce travel times. The National Roads Authority in Norway is presenting an ambitious project would be the first in the world, which would consist of installing two underwater tunnels that would be connected to pontoons located along the surface, these pontoons remain stable tunnels and not interfere with the passage of vessels also be considered that reinforce each tunnel at the bottom of the fjord to give greater stability. The tunnels would be submerged to about 30.5 meters from the surface and each would be the wide enough to accommodate two lanes, it is proposed to have two tunnels, one for traffic in each direction, and its leaders mentioned to drive through them would very similar experience to travel underwater tunnels where Norway has 35 of them. In theory, these tunnels will reduce the journey of 22 hours on the road in Sognefjord within 11 hours. To carry out this project has a budget of 25,000 million dollars and is estimated to have them ready for the year 2035, but not before making relevant analyzes showing the possible risks of having a structure of this type to streams, and to remember that it would be the first tunnel of this kind, however the money is designed to reduce trips between fjords, so if that is not practicable may be used for other proposals. #submarineFloating #submarine #Russia #Navy #Russian #Sweden #nuclear #SharkWeek #India #yellow #sea #ocean

Air Clip capsules: play with different capsules for passengers and goods.

Air Clip capsules: play with different capsules for passengers and goods. Clip Air wants to take the concept to the world of transport of people and goods. We find something like modular aircraft. In principle four different models with the same philosophy project: there is a main module that is the cockpit with their wings, landing gear and engines. The rumen is empty for placing the other part of the equation which cabins are loaded with different designs. Not long ago we present the Airbus people had patented a similar idea. "Clip Air" is a concept of the "Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne". The Swiss believe that the same people trip reports regardless of medium, I mean, the modules or cabins could well be interchangeable between trains, boats and planes. Imagine change from "vehicle" along a journey with stops, without actually changing cabin or container. From the point of view of the goods, which normally make a more complex route in different scales and transport, it can make more sense. From the point of view of passenger may also be changes in the way we travel, for example, the entrance to the capsule would not have to be on track, they could put in a more comfortable place and then take it to the plane. competition between different operators also includes flight, which would each have a capsule of a plane (150 each). We give a rather simple view of the matter, without many technical details, but I think we can get an idea with recreations. As can be seen in them, it is possible that more than one of those cabins up to three hang onto the same plane. The most striking design concepts part is definitely lives up to its undercarriage, a structure is formed with two feet on each side of the space reserved for the capsules. Although the wheels themselves are placed in them shrink, the structure is fixed. About its feasibility, as there are all kinds of opinions: Addison Schonland specialized consultants as brilliant consider it from the point of view of engineering, but very difficult to implement. It is very difficult to compete with established and profitable technologies, introducing such a radical change. #AirClipCapsules #AirClip #capsulesPassengers #capsules #Passengers #goods #Technology

The ozone layer: Thirty years later is recovering, barrier against ultraviolet rays of the sun.

The ozone layer: Thirty years later is recovering, barrier against ultraviolet rays of the sun. We get good news from Antarctica. The ozone layer, the main barrier against ultraviolet rays of the sun begins to recover. After decades of weakness, the Antarctic hole is down 4 million square kilometers since 2000. That is eight times the size of Spain. Early in the century the ozone layer reached its maximum area of ​​25 million km2. Almost a decade after the entry into force of the Protocol of Montreal, the largest international effort to save the ozone layer, the trend has reversed. The ozone layer is a layer of gas that filters the sun waves arriving protecting the surface of the earth much of the ultraviolet rays that the sun sends us. In 1985 it was discovered that the layer was disappearing and was forming a hole over Antarctica. Now scientists have noted not only the shrinking of the hole, but have confirmed that the improvement is due to the ban on chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) was agreed in Montreal in 1987. CFCs, which until a few years ago found in aerosols, refrigerants and dry cleaning products, they have played a key role in the erosion of the ozone layer. So we can only recognize that is excellent news. Especially after discovering last October that the ozone depletion returned to a record size for those dates. Now researchers claim that the eruption of Calbuco, a volcano in southern Chile, contributed to the cyclical growth of the hole but the trend is to reduction. "It is expected that the ozone layer recovers, although very slowly. Today we can be confident that the measures we take at the time have put the earth on the road to recovery," according to MIT Professor Susan Solomon, one of the greatest experts in the world on this subject and director of research. And although his team estimated that with this pace of recovery the atmosphere will not be in perfect condition until 2050, Solomon results remind us of the importance of international cooperation to stop climate change. #ozone #ozonelayer #ozonehole #atmosphere16 #preservation #ozone #environment #September16 #pollution #InternationalDay #Antarctic #ViennaConvention #turnup #skincancer #Science #OzoneLayer

City of Champions Stadium: City of Los Angeles will have spectacular new stadium in 2019. Finally after many proposals, debates, insults and rumors, it's official, the winning proposal for the new stadium in the city of Los Angeles, will be proposed by the Rams team in 2014 for the area of ​​Inglewood, beating the proposal Raiders Carson. The stadium, known so far under the provisional name "City of Champions Stadium ', will be located in Inglewood in the southwest of Los Angeles, which is located old Hollywood Park Racetrack until 2013. The stadium will be part of a large entertainment and shopping complex of more than 121 hectares, which will include hotels, residential spaces, shops, restaurants, theaters, entertainment venues for children and youth, as well as the new headquarters of the NFL and TV studios NFL Networks. The complex will be equipped with the latest technology, such as charging stations for electric cars, rain collection stations, recycling plants and waste water treatment, as well as solar cells located throughout the complex, which is responsible for obtaining all the energy needed to light overnight, since the idea is that the whole complex is operated at 85% renewable energy ... Of course it will be equipped with free WiFi connection to gigabit speeds, using similar devices released in New York. The ability to regular season games will be 70,000 spectators, but may be extended postseason to 80,000. It is also intended for mass events such as concerts and Super Bowls, where the maximum capacity will be 100,000 spectators, this thanks to its modular design. The roof of the stadium will feature colorful LED lights, which provide the ability to display images and information abroad.

ATV Shaman: Russian mastodon 8x8 has everything you need to drive in the most severe conditions. The simply known as ATV Shaman is designed to be driven in the most severe conditions, both meteorological and terrain, where it even has the ability to float and move in the water. Of course, due to its capabilities, size and weight, it is not intended to be used on a city's streets, so you will not be able to walk in it when you leave the house. The Shaman ATV has dimensions of 5.7 meters long, 2 meters wide and 1.9 meters high, making it considerably larger than a Chevrolet Suburban 4X4. It has eight wheels equipped with low pressure tires, each independent in both suspension and movement. One of its strengths is that each wheel can rotate in opposite directions allowing a turning radius of just 7.6 meters. It has several driving modes like 'Crab' and 'Thruster', the latter being the one that gives it the ability to become a watercraft. While in the water, the four rear wheels are the ones that propel the vehicle forward and the four front ones give the direction, in this way also it is supported in a propeller screw that increases the speed of displacement, a additive that is sold separately . The maximum speed of the Shaman ATV on land is 70 km / h, while in the water it travels at 2 km / h or 7 km / h if we have the propeller. The lower part of the vehicle has a hermetically sealed frame that makes it able to face the water without fear, besides that it allows it to float. In case the water enters the cabin we can lean on a pump that will draw the water at a speed of up to 200 liters per minute. ATV Sherman has a 146 hp diesel engine with a tank with capacity for 261 liters, which will give us a performance of up to 650 kilometers. #ATVShaman #SUV #Russia #Vehicles #AbanTech #technology #Innovation #tech #RussianMastodon8x8 #SevereConditions  #WaterVehicle #ShamanVehicle #design #WeatherConditions #AbilityFloat #velocity #displacement #Earth #Water #vehicle #DieselEngine #car #Radio #telecommunications #AirConditioner #GPS

Graphene: amazing material and with a laser can now create objects in 3D

Graphene amazing material and with a laser can now create objects in 3D. This is a great year for graphene researchers, who continue to identify amazing new applications for this material. And now, a new laser technique could help unlock the full potential for real-world application, using it to create 3D objects. Graphene is an impressively versatile material, with applications ranging from cancer detection to conducting electricity and creating smart sensors. However, for these applications to be practical in the real world, it is necessary for scientists to find a way to convert graphene to a three-dimensional shape. Researchers from Finland and Taiwan have discovered a way to "forge" graphene into three-dimensional objects, using a focused laser beam. As proof of concept, they showed how lasers could create a 3D pyramid of graphene. To achieve this result, a laser focuses on a point on a 2D graphene network, which radiates that part of the structure and causes it to swell. The 3D pyramid that the team created is only 60 nm high (small enough to fit into a single strand of human hair), but is still 200 times higher than a graphene sheet. "This changes the electronic and optical properties of graphene, opening up a new way of adapting them with a very simple method," Professor Mika Pettersson, who led the research team at the Nanoscience Center at Jyvaskyla University, told Digital Trends. "This changes how graphene devices can be designed and manufactured. As an important aspect, the properties can be adapted locally, but still maintain the integrity of the carbon network. Ultimately, the vision is to manufacture functional devices with the method of laser writing.

LiFi: The new Internet connection, safer networks and dizzying speeds. LiFi is the latest commercial name of an optical communications technology that has been investigating for more than 100 years and consists of transmitting data at frequencies between 400 and 800 THz. It aims to be able to transmit information with conventional lighting elements such as light bulbs and LEDs at the same time as it illuminates, or not, a room, and adding only a few cheap and easy to manufacture elements to the current bulbs. It requires a modulator in the transmitting part that will turn off and on the light source very quickly imperceptibly for the users, thus creating the zeros and binaries, and a photodiode in the reception part, for example in the mobile, tablet or laptop Which picks up the changes of light and passes them back to the electric domain. The first versions used fluorescent lamps that reached speeds of a few Kbps. Later LEDs were started, capable of being turned off and on faster, with more power, multiplying the final speeds. In 2011 Professor Harald Haas of the University of Edinburgh showed the first device he called LiFi transmitting at 10 Mbps. Later he began to speculate with speeds of up to 500 Mbps and later the Fraunhofer Institute of Berlin showed his advances indicating that they could reach 800 Mbps. Finally, the research continues with proposals that want to reach the 15 Gbps 1.88 GBps as they optimize the operation of both the sending and the receiving. #Bulbs #LiFi #wifi #Internet #IoT #tech #iphone #AbanTech #fotboltinet #Communications # MWC2017 #LiFi #LocalNetworks #evolution #technology #OpticalCommunications #LiFiNetworksSpeeds #LED #Modulator #home #connectivity #FraunhoferInstituteOfBerlin #BarcelonaCongress #HaraldBurchardt #PureLiFi #USB #LiFiXSystem #networking

Forest city: China is building the first "forest city" of 40,000 trees to combat air pollution. The country has been leading the way in "green living" in recent years, with the government announcing that it had completed the construction of the world's largest floating solar farm. Now, in an attempt to curb the production of toxic gases, the country continues to pave the way so to speak) with the construction of one of the first forest cities in the world. Designed by Stefano Boeri, which you might remember also designed two "vertical skyscraper forests", the city is currently being built in Liuzhou, Guangxi province. Once completed, the new city will receive 30,000 people and, thanks to the abundance of trees and plants, will absorb almost 10,000 tons of CO2, 57 tons of pollutants per year and produce approximately 900 tons of oxygen per year. The city will reach these figures quite impressive thanks to approximately one million plants of more than 100 species, as well as 40,000 trees planted in facades on almost every imaginable surface. The new Liuzhou Forest City will connect to the existing Liuzhou through a series of services of fast train and electric cars; There will also be several schools and two hospitals. There are also plans to make the city self-sustainable in terms of power, thanks to geothermal and solar energy resources. #Forestcity #ForestcityChina #greenliving #verticalskyscraperforests #Abantech #LiuzhouForestcity

New York metro WiFi: as it prepares for its new metro WiFi, USB ports and digital displays. Discretely New York is becoming a state with smart cities when nobody expected it, because the last couple of years have launched aggressive initiatives to modernize the metropolis, this through the implementation of "smart" buildings, free public WiFi modules with gigabit speed, future dumpsters with WiFi as well as the adoption of e-books for schools statewide. Following this trend, the government of New York is announcing an exciting new plan to modernize the city subway, covering both stations and carriages, which means a deserved upgrade to one of the transport systems most commonly used in the world, which in turn, is also one of the most neglected. Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York, has announced that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) will receive a budget of 27,000 million dollars, which will serve to start up a plan of five years for the renewal of the system city ​​subway. This renovation consists of 1,025 new cars, digital displays with mobile connections that will inform details of the routes in real time, better safety features, illuminated by LEDs and deploying WiFi and USB connection for this both new cars and for seasons. These new wagons equating real-time locating system, which will report its location via a mobile application to any person, or will be available through the screens of the seasons; you are also screens will be placed inside the car, which will be used to implement a new system of mobile advertising, plus it will be informative. The cars will also feature a new design with wider doors to allow people in and out in less time, plus they have a "free" design from start to finish so that users can be distributed throughout the car. In the coming days will start with the renovation of three seasons in Manhattan, where the plan is to modernize 31 stations in the metropolitan area before the end of the year, from 2017 start with upgrading the remaining 170 stations will have a new standard unified design, where the architectural legacy of each is respected. This project joins the city initiative to update and make safer transportation systems, which together with the recent launch of the new generation of buses with WiFi in Queens, the plan is that by 2020 the entire system transportation has a new face. #NewYorkMetroWiFi #NewYork #MetroWiFi #SuperfastWireless #CityCentreWiFi #WiFi #metro #LEDlights #SmartCity #PublicTransportation #Vehicles

Dinosaur-era shark with 300 teeth, dating back 80 million years, caught off the coast of Portugal
 
01:36
In an incredible finding, scientists have caught the rare frilled shark, which dates back 80 million years to the ‘age of the dinosaurs’ and is one of the oldest living species today. Scientists from the Institute for the Sea and Atmosphere captured the male fish while working on a project to minimise unwanted catches in commercial fishing. According to the researchers, the frilled shark measured 1.5 metres long, and was caught at a depth of 700 metres. It was captured at a depth of 2,300 feet off the resort of Portimao in Portugal. The prehistoric predator has a long, snake-like body and around 300 teeth. According to the scientists, the specie is “little known in terms of its biology or environment” because of the fact that it lives at depths that are rarely ventured to by humans. Speaking to Sic Noticias, Professor Margarida Castro, a researcher form the University of the Algarve explained that the shark gets its name from the frilled arrangement of its 300 teeth, 'which allows it to trap squid, fish and other sharks in sudden lunges'. These sharks are members of the some of the most ancient groups of sharks that are known for having extra grills, eyes on the side of their heads and spineless backfins. This isn't the first time that a frilled shark has been caught. Last December, a fisherman called Roman Fedortsov uploaded a picture to Twitter of a frilled shark he caught in Russia.

3D solar towers: would be the solution to the low efficiency solar panels. Developments around the use of renewable energy continues, the reduction in the cost of photovoltaic cells, allowing more users to adopt the use of solar panels for home and thus reduce the electricity bill. Solar panels, despite being one of the most viable for the average user options are not the most efficient, as its flat design limits its efficiency at times of peak intensity of sunlight, but this could change in the future thanks to a new project at MIT that eliminates panels and 3D transforms towers. MIT researchers have developed the first 3D solar towers with a housing made of a 3D printer, which have adapted small solar panels on two of its faces structure, this with the idea of ​​adapting to the path of the sun and thus have greater efficiency, its creators state that would be an increase of up to 20 times more solar energy, since practically be receiving sunlight throughout the day. An attractive point within these towers, is that it is printed 3D structures at the nanoscale that could be behind the panels, so there would be an obstruction and receiving sunlight is better spent. On the other hand, to solve the orientation of the towers that are always pointing in the right direction, the base would have a motor connected to a system of algorithms, which will make the tower rotate depending on the latitude and season of the year where it has been installed... #3DsolarTowers #SolarTowers #WaveEnergy2015 #renewableenergy

Giant marine reptile: lived in Antarctic 150 million years ago
 
01:36
Scientists in Argentina have found the remains of a giant carnivorous marine reptile, or plesiosaur, that lived 150 million years ago in Antarctica. The four-finned reptile, which measured up to 12m long, dates from the late Jurassic period and is the most ancient creature ever discovered on the continent. Soledad Cavalli, a paleontologist at Argentina's National Scientific and Technical Research Council, said: "At this site, you can find a great diversity of fish, ammonites, some bivalves, but we did not expect to find such an ancient plesiosaur." The "surprising" discovery has never been documented, according to a statement from the National University of La Matanza, near Buenos Aires. "The discovery is pretty extraordinary, because the rock types at the site weren't thought conducive to the preservation of bones, like the vertebrae of this marine reptile," Cavalli said. The discovery site was a two-hour helicopter journey from Argentina's Marambio Base on the tip of Antarctica, with the researchers set to continue their work in January, during the southern hemisphere's summer. Marcelo Reguero of the Argentine Antarctic Institute (IAA) added that Antarctica was at the time part of the Gondwana continent, which also included Australia, New Zealand, India, Madagascar, Africa and South America, before continental drift pushed them apart.

The lightweight LMX 161-H is an electric motorcycle styled after downhill bicycles, fusing elements from both worlds. Initially designed for extreme off-road use, the two-wheeler is now the subject of crowdfunding campaign in search of the resources required to homologate it for the street. Built in France by two young engineers, the LMX 161-H is described as an ultra-light electric freeride motorcycle. Built around an aluminum 6061 frame, it manages to cram 8 kW (10.7 hp) of power into a compact body that weighs in total just 42 kg (92.6 lb). The LMX bike is outfitted with mostly high-end mountain bike gear, such as RST Killah Coil RC front forks, a DNM RCP2 rear shock and TRP Zurich brakes with 203 mm rotors. Motorcycle parts, like the motocross-type footpegs and Domino hand controls, complete the build. Even the wheels are mixed; a 26-in downhill tire guides the front, while a 19-in motorcycle tire puts the power down at the rear through a chain and sprocket. The powertrain is an electric brushless DC motor with a Kelly controller, equipped with regenerative braking and fed by a compact 1.7 kWh (57 V / 30 Ah) Samsung battery. The combo is rated for 3 kW of continuous power, which is available by running the motor in Eco mode, but selecting the Boost mode will make a significant jump up to the peak of 8 kW. In both cases, the rider enjoys a steady 300 Nm (221.3 lb-ft) of torque, enough to tackle inclines up to 45 degrees, according to LMX.

Project Sundrop: a revolutionary and futuristic system of agriculture. It is located in the desert of southern Australia, an inhospitable, dry and hot area that until now was considered sterile for any type of agriculture. Then came the draft of the Sundrop Farms, with only solar energy and seawater have managed to produce up to 17,000 tons of tomatoes a year. This farming system is unique in its kind, as it requires no soil, pesticides, fossil fuels and fresh water. The project began in 2010 with an experimental greenhouse near the city of Port Augusta, and after the good results in 2014 began construction of another greenhouse of 20 hectares in the same area which was completed in 2016. The same greenhouse It has a system that brings seawater Spencer Gulf, two kilometers away. Water passes a desalination plant powered by solar energy, and where fresh enough water to irrigate produced 180,000 tomato plants located inside the greenhouse after removing the salt. Solar energy produces a modern tower 150 meters high, with 23,000 mirrors pointing it to direct sunlight. On a sunny day, they can produce up to 39 megawatts of power, enough to power the desalination plant and electrical systems to maintain the temperature in the greenhouse. The area is warm, so that the greenhouse is filled with salt water wet cartons that maintain enough fresh plants to allow them grow. In winter, however, a solar heater is responsible for maintaining a comfortable temperature. Sea water also helps to clean and sterilize the air in the greenhouse, making no need for any type of pesticide. Produced tomatoes have begun to be sold in local markets. The infrastructure has cost some 200 million dollars, which is a small impediment to expand the idea. In addition, because winter has not yet managed to always get enough to keep the whole system energy, solar greenhouse still it has some dependence on fossil fuels. In any case, these are two problems waiting to remedy the medium term. #Sundrop #Cora #Marketing #Abantech #investing #branding #concentrated #SolarEnergy #RenewableEnergy #Agriculture #EcologyNature #SundropProject #FarmingSystem #Sundrop #Farms #water #sun #desalination #ElectricalSystems #SaltWater #SolarHeating #greenhouse #Sundrop #ClimateChange #DesertAreas

Nanomaterial: promises to take your electric car farther and faster. A group of researchers at Northwestern University have developed a material that could accelerate significantly to charge batteries in electric cars, and also help increase their autonomy for these batteries hold off more and more kilometers. In the current electric cars use a complex system of batteries and supercapacitors to provide the necessary power to the vehicle is done, but this new nanomaterial is capable of both, combining these functions in a simple and promising solution. William Dichtel, leader of this research group, explained that the nanomaterial has the ability to store large amounts of electrical energy or charge, like a battery, and also the ability to be loaded and unloaded quickly, as a supercapacitor. The development is based on a relatively new field of research: Covalent Organic Frameworks called, a family of highly resistant polymers having a series of tiny pores that can store energy. They have combined the polymer with a highly conductive material to achieve an alternative to the porous carbon-based electrodes that previously used. The COFs are impressive and very promising structures, but its conductivity is limited. That's the problem we are trying to solve. To modify and add this attribute lacking COFs can use in practice. #nanomaterial #science #nanotechnology #AbanTech #IEEE #Battery #security #organic #CarBatteries #Vehicles #COFs #conductivity #ElectricCars #technology

Modular domes: low cost "DIY" houses for nature lovers.  It is about hemispheres or domes (dome in English), and it is the same as the company it has come up with. The idea: that they be simple construction and transport modules, that can be expanded and structured to the user's liking and that are also energy efficient. The building materials are mainly metal, wood and polycarbonate. There are different models according to the environment that we choose and the design that we like more, but the basic structure consists of a base of 24.9 square meters per module (about 6 meters in diameter) based on galvanized steel, a wooden structure ( Resistant) and transparent or opaque modules (made of thermoformed polycarbonate or PMMA with a layer of mineral wool or aluminum) 23 mm thick and resistant to ultraviolet radiation. Modules of one type or another can be combined at the whim of the future inhabitant, so that the dome is to a greater or lesser extent a window to the exterior, in addition to comply with the European insulation standard (SIST EN 13162) and be safe before A fire, according to explain in the web of the project. And the base also serves as a gardener, being able to plant plants, and to collect water from the rain. At the moment there are four types of Smartdome: Skydome (with some elevation), Aquadome (for waterways), Treedome (incorporating vegetation) and Snowdome (for colder environments in which it snows or snow). In fact the company aims to lead the production of thermal houses in environments such as the Alps, something that would certainly test thermal insulation. With respect to energy efficiency, Željko Hočevar (from Smartdome) explains in Inhabitat that technical efficiency is combined with not having an impact on the environment, as well as taking advantage of resources (such as rainwater). The energy aspect lies in the materials, since the insulation helps to reduce the energy consumption (as they point). #ModularDomes #Abantech #ModularDomesDIY

Sunway TaihuLight: The new world's fastest supercomputer is Chinese. Today is the thing of special computers, if a few minutes ago we taught them the micro with more cores inside, now it is the turn to more powerful system, created in China to dethrone countryman as Tianhe-2. The new supercomputer by the name of Sunway TaihuLight, and is the most capable on the planet, if we pay attention to the list of TOP500 people mounted. The most striking aspect may be that it is 100% 'Made in China', with what this means in a war that practically just arrived. It is also important to know that the United States vetoed the export of high-performance processors to China. Yes, the whole system has been built using processors designed and created in the country, they have decided not select anything that was conceived in the United States, or elsewhere on the planet. The architecture is not based on anything previously known. With its artillery get offer processing power of 93 petaflops, which is five times more than the US most powerful model - more powerful third -, and two to three times more efficient than Tianhe-2 (based on Intel processors). Sunway has 10,650,600 TaihuLight cores within 40,960 processors. In the main American machine there are 560,000 chips. Chinese supercomputer uses SW26010 processors that have been created by the Shanghai High Performance IC Design Centre. It is not only the most powerful, also helps increase the number of systems of this type are installed in China: 167. The United States is nearly tied that number with 165, so there is also an important race to qualify as the nation with more units. Most striking, according to the University of Tennessee, it is that there was a single supercomputer in 2001 on Chinese soil and in just over a decade have given back to the tortilla. The initial idea seems that it was upgrading the Tianhe-2, but with blocking export from the United States, decided it had to accelerate its '863', which promotes the development of systems with technology developed in China. It is crucial to have control over systems that will work on national security, or very important scientific research. #computer #TaihuLight #supercomputer #tech #Sunway

Tesla makes quick work of Puerto Rico hospital solar power relief project
 
01:50
Tesla CEO Elon Musk noted on Twitter that Tesla’s solar team could indeed outfit Puerto Rico with power facilities that could be used to generate and store power reserves when the existing grid isn’t available, as it has been after the U.S. territory faced the devastation of hurricane Maria. Now, Tesla is showing that it’s making good on its promise of help, with significant progress being made on one solar generation/storage facility on the island. The facility in question will provide power to Children's Hospital, with a combination of solar cells and Tesla's Powerpack commercial energy storage batteries. That should mean it can not only generate power from the sun's rays in times of need, but also store up to be used to provide power around the clock and throughout varying weather conditions, even when the sun is not shining. Tesla noted on Twitter that this is just the “first of many solar+storage projects going live,” after the company discussed how it might help with Puerto Rico’s ongoing recovery efforts with PR Governor Ricardo Rossello following an exchange between the Governor and Musk on Twitter. Rossello and Puerto Rican Chief Innovation Officer Glorimar Ripoli proposed turning the territory into a flagship example of what Tesla’s solar technologies can do for the world. Tesla has also been shipping its home Powerwall battery storage units to the island for help restoring the grid, and Musk himself donated $250,000 of his personal money to support relief efforts. Tesla also postponed its electric semi truck reveal event to November in order to focus on helping establish facilities like this one in Puerto Rico.

Its creators requested approval from the Food and Administration (FDA) in 2012, and have finally received a positive response. After some modifications and additional applications, the exoskeleton Indego has received approval from the FDA, which puts it as an endorsed for clinical and personal use device, allowing it goes on sale in the United States and some countries supported the FDA standards. This exoskeleton is second in the world to have the FDA approval, however everything indicates that this will be the first to be marketed. Its functions provides a rigid support attached to the hips, knees and feet, all through a medium that is placed around the torso. Has a pair of programmed computer and powered by rechargeable batteries electric motors, which allow the user to be displaceable as a kind of Segway, that is, if the person bends forward or backward, the exoskeleton forward or Step back, just as if the person leans back for a while, the device will help you sit. Indego has a weight of just 11.79 kilograms, one of the most currently light, its creators think put on sale in the coming weeks for an estimated retail price of $ 80,000. But that's not all, because thanks to FDA approval, are fighting for insurance companies to cover the total cost of the exoskeleton so that more people can access it, marking a new milestone in this type of device. #mobility #exoskeletons #Health #Technology #RoboticsArtificial #Intelligence #Indego #IndegoExoskeleton #FDA #exoskeletonFDA #UnitedStates #Segway #device

Wikkelhouse: sustainable house can be made of cardboard. It is an idea of ​​the firm Fiction Factory which has shaped in reality an idea so striking as novel that responds to the name of Wikkelhouse. We distinguish house next to the Dutch word wikkel which comes to mean wrapping. In short it would be something like house wrapped. And with these two terms we can already guess where the shots go. And it is that we are before a house created with ecological materials carton of which they affirm is up to one third more sustainable than a traditional dwelling. Its creators affirm that yes, that it is an ecologically efficient solution and also solid, since it has a useful life of up to 100 years. For the construction of the Wikkelhouse has used a process that brings together different modules created from carton layers 24 layers in total that are pasted between them to provide consistency and resistance using an ecological adhesive. These layers are coated to achieve an insulation of the elements water, cold, sun of a compound based on a vegetable oil and are mounted on a base of wood that elevates and insets the terrain to avoid contact with the surface. These are models with a weight of about 6 tons that are easily installable and offers dimensions of almost 1.5 meters deep, 3.5 meters high and 4.6 meters wide, modules that as units Can be grouped together to form larger structures. This is a house designed for those places where either can not build or require fast and easily removable facilities that in turn can be integrated into the environment. #Wikkelhouse #AbanTech #technology #Design #architecture #ecology #art #VegetableOil #TraditionalDwelling #EcologicalSticker #sustainability #design

Ben Tippett: US scientist has developed model for viable time machine, Using math and physics. A US scientist has developed a mathematical model for a viable time machine - an advance that could bring stuff of popular science-fiction closer to reality. Using math and physics, Ben Tippett, from University of British Columbia in Canada, has created a formula that describes a method for time travel. In 1915, German scientist Albert Einstein announced his theory of general relativity, stating that gravitational fields are caused by distortions in the fabric of space and time. Using Einstein's theory, Tippett said that the curvature of space-time accounts for the curved orbits of the planets. In "flat" space-time, planets and stars would move in straight lines. In the vicinity of a massive star, space-time geometry becomes curved and the straight trajectories of nearby planets will follow the curvature and bend around star. "The time direction of the space-time surface also shows curvature. There is evidence showing the closer to a black hole we get, time moves slower," said Tippett. "My model of a time machine uses the curved space-time to bend time into a circle for the passengers, not in a straight line. That circle takes us back in time," he said. While it is possible to describe this type of time travel using a mathematical equation, Tippett doubts that anyone will ever build a machine to make it work. "HG Wells popularised the term 'time machine' and he left people with the thought that an explorer would need a 'machine or special box' to actually accomplish time travel," Tippett said. "While is it mathematically feasible, it is not yet possible to build a space-time machine because we need materials - which we call exotic matter - to bend space-time in these impossible ways, but they have yet to be discovered," he said. #BenTippett #timeMachine #Abantech #timemachine #timetravel #ProfessorWatts #9luglio2006 #throwback #Grok #MysticRambler #time #ITA #WC2006 #DJSTEVEBi #AlbertEinstein

On March 15 we will have information about Sony and their plans within virtual reality, but while we wait, continue to emerge clues of possible functions and accessories that come in the future, as in this case, that we have a patent for a curious glove that bring back memories to those who have more years in this video game. Forum users NeoGaf have released three applications for patents filed by Sony in the fall of 2014, ie a few months after the announcement of Project Morpheus, as it was known before the Playstation VR, in these applications can see a kind of glove allow us to hold objects and interact through gestures in virtual environments. The glove would use a very similar to the NES Power Glove, a fixture technology ahead of its time because for many it was difficult to use, in addition to its compatibility was limited to very few games. According to the patent, this glove would have a thumb controller plus a specified interface for virtual worlds, where we would receive feedback depending on the interaction we have with the various elements. According to information, the glove would be able to include sensors bending fingers and pressure sensors for the tips of the fingers and the palm of the hand, along with touch switches, all serve to expand the range of options games, thus bringing a dive that includes the sense of touch and not just the view. Of course Sony has not wanted to give statements on the matter and has only been limited to point to its next developer conference, where they will be released new details of Playstation VR. #SonyPlaystationVR #SonyPlaystation #PS4 #playstation #Sony #gaming #technology #Playstation4 #XboxOne #Techno #tech #PSP

Solar supercapacitor: creates electricity and hydrogen fuel on the cheap
 
02:40
New work out of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) could help lower the barrier to entry for consumers, with a device that uses sunlight to produce both hydrogen and electricity. The UCLA device is a hybrid unit that combines a supercapacitor with a hydrogen fuel cell, and runs the whole shebang on solar power. Along with the usual positive and negative electrodes, the device has a third electrode that can either store energy electrically or use it to split water into its constituent hydrogen and oxygen atoms – a process called water electrolysis. To make the electrodes as efficient as possible, the team maximized the amount of surface area that comes into contact with water, right down to the nanoscale. That increases the amount of hydrogen the system can produce, as well as how much energy the supercapacitor can store. "People need fuel to run their vehicles and electricity to run their devices," says Richard Kaner, senior author of the study. "Now you can make both fuel and electricity with a single device." Hydrogen itself may be clean, but producing it on a commercial scale might not be. It's often created by converting natural gas, which not only results in a lot of carbon dioxide emissions but can be costly. Using renewable sources like solar can help solve both of those problems at once. And it helps that the UCLA device uses materials like nickel, iron and cobalt, which are much more abundant than the precious metals like platinum that are currently used to produce hydrogen. "Hydrogen is a great fuel for vehicles: It is the cleanest fuel known, it's cheap and it puts no pollutants into the air – just water," says Kaner. "And this could dramatically lower the cost of hydrogen cars." The new system could also help solve some of the infrastructure woes as well. Hydrogen vehicles can't really take off until consumers can easily find places to fill up, and while strides are being made in that department, with the UCLA device users can hook into the sun almost anywhere to produce their own fuel, which could be particularly handy for those living in rural or remote areas.

Piton CPU: The chip with 25 cores wants to be the heart of a computer with 200,000 cores. Researchers at Princeton University have developed a chip based on Open Source SPARC architecture with 25 cores and has a very special feature: it is very scalable, which could destine in the future to a computer with 200,000 cores. The chip has been named Piton, and is designed with the goal of being particularly flexible and easily scalable so that the combination of many of these CPUs can take advantage from the first server where a high degree needed parallel processing using the SPARC architecture is unique: many current advances from architectures seem most promising, especially in the case of ARM. However this project OpenSparc decided based on the design, which in turn is a modified version of OpenSparc T1 processor Oracle. The developers of the chip have used a topology mesh 5x5 matrix cores, each of which operating at 1 GHz. This is one of the latest projects in the field of Open Source processors, but is especially interesting for that scalability also it appears when it is necessary to share the DRAM memory or storage available. A small router in each core enables all of them to communicate easily, and that makes this design one of the most interesting in the field Open Source. Princeton University point out that with 460 million transistors Piton is the CPU developed in academic environments with more transistors worldwide. There is still far from the nearly 8,000 million with the most powerful processors from Intel or NVIDIA, but their manufacturing processes with integration technologies 14 and 16 nm are also advanced than the one used by these researchers, who have made use of a scale of 32 nm. #opensource #Software #processor #CPU #AbanTech #processors #servers #components, #PrincetonUniversity #SPARC #architecture #Piton #chip #cores #DRAM #technology #computer

Bicycle Bottle System: This amazing bottle becomes moist air into drinking water. Retezár Kristof is a designer who has created a unique bottle: exploiting the principle of condensation of moisture from the air to produce drinking water in any environment. Of course the amount of water produced depends on factors such as humidity or temperature water. The device is powered by solar energy and comprises a capacitor which functions as a refrigerator-connected to a series of hydrophobic surfaces water repellent. This bottle can produce half a liter of water in an hour under ideal conditions. According Retezár if ila temperature is between 30 and 40 degrees Celsius and the humidity is between 80 and 90 percent will be in the best position to generate drinking water, but in reality there is always a certain percentage of moisture in the atmosphere as well the bottle might work even in the desert. The prototype includes a filter to prevent dust or insects in the water, but so far no pollutants are filtered. In this sense Retezár is already posing a version with a filter that will avoid that problem ... #bicycle #bike #cycling #sougofollow #photography #mtb #photo #travel #cycle #BicycleBottleSystem #BicycleBottle #System

Electronic sensors graphene MWC 2016: this devices can detect our brain activity. Pavilion in Graphene, the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) just presented graphene sensors that takes advantage of all the capabilities of this material to develop devices capable of detecting our brain activity to completely change the interaction between people and computers. Graphene has spent many years as the "material of the future '. In 2013, the European Union funded a program to 2,000 million to research applications in the brain. They were not mistaken, it's a gem for neurosurgery: 150 times stronger than steel, very thin (the thinnest material on the planet), good conductor (250 times faster than silicon) and also biocompatible. few weeks, Fabbro, Scaini, Leon and Vazquez (2016) reported that they had been made capable of connecting electrodes graphene without damaging neurons. Although they are now at the stage of animal research, neurons retained their ability to transmit impulses without showing any side effects. This line of research would improve the quality of life of people suffering from disorders in the electrical conductivity of the brain such as epilepsy and Parkinson's. But we are not there yet. As we said at the MWC, just they presented a graphene-based electronic sensors to detect electrical activity in the brain. The key to these sensors is that they can be applied to a large area and have a very high resolution so you can completely change the way we interact with computers. The devices are based on a matrix of microsensors graphene (about 10 microns x 10 microns) to suit the specific form of the brain surface. Each sensor detects small changes of electrical activity around. #SensorsGraphene #MWC #Graphene #equipment #Medicine #Health #MWC2016 #ICN2 #neurons,

Comcast Gigabit Internet: offering its gigabit Internet service in the Atlanta area.
 
02:23
Comcast Gigabit Internet: offering its gigabit Internet service in the Atlanta area with Google Fiber. Comcast is now offering its gigabit Internet service in the Atlanta area to compete with Google Fiber, but in reality, it’s unfortunately not really much competition at all. For starters, Comcast is offering the service at $70 per month, which matches the Internet-only Google Fiber package, but you must signup for a restrictive three-year contract to secure that pricing. But the hits don’t stop there if you forgo the three-year contract, you’ll pay a more princely $139.95 per month AND face monthly 300GB data caps. We hate to say it, but gigabit Internet service with a relatively low 300GB data cap (or any data cap at all for that matter) seems incredibly harsh when you’re paying $140 a month for Internet-only service. Comcast will remove that bandwidth cap if you pay an additional $35 per month. So if you don’t want to be tied down for three years, and want a really comparable service to Google Fiber, you’re looking at $175 per month, which may be a tough pill to swallow for potential customers. We should also mention that since Comcast’s gigabit Internet service is based on DOCSIS 3.1, its upload speeds are limited to just 35Mbps, whereas Google Fiber is symmetrical 1Gbps. "Our Atlanta customers will be among the first in the world to enjoy this new Gigabit technology, and we’re looking forward to learning more from these early adopters about how they take advantage of these ultra-fast speeds," said Comcast Central Division President Bill Connors. "The capabilities of DOCSIS 3.1 are incredibly exciting, and we are the first to market with a Gigabit offering that runs over our existing cable infrastructure." We should point out that Comcast considers its $70/month for 36 months package a “promotional price” that is part of a customer trial. The company goes on to state, “Once this advanced consumer trial is complete, Comcast plans to roll Gigabit service out at additional price points in other markets to gauge consumer interest in Gigabit speeds.” Let’s hope that when the gigabit service launches in additional markets that it’s priced more competitively and with fewer restrictions. #Comcast #xfinity #ComcastSucks #Florida #RETWEET #scams #scam #socialmedia #fraud #comcastcares #uverse

Ecocapsule: This egg-shaped capsule is a place to live able to generate its own energy. Update: The Ecocapsule has finally gone on sale in a special edition of only 50 units with a price of 79,900 euros. At the end of these 50 units may be purchased at a lower price (unspecified) during 2017, which already can be booked with 300 euros. Funny how some technological advances come to bring us a bit of comfort and convenience to activities we do every day, this with the intention of having more free time to use it in other activities, but in turn, these same advances can serve for other circumstances. Such is the case of Ecocapsule, which is practically a house capable of withstanding any weather condition as it has the ability to generate their own energy and in turn, give us everything you need to survive if we are in a secluded place or just go out hiking. The study design and Slovak Nice Architects architecture are those behind the Ecocapsule, which has attracted the attention of several people and governments because of the variety of uses that can be given, either from a simple tent, to shelter for victims in tragedies such as earthquakes or floods. The Ecocapsule has everything you need to live and survive indefinitely, for example, has its own folding bed, windows, bathroom with shower including two small wineries (internal and external) for storing food, small kitchen, table and two chairs to work or sit down to eat. What makes independent is your energy collection system with its 2.6 square meters of solar cells on the entire roof of the capsule, and a folding pole with wind turbine 750W, all this energy is stored in a battery 9744Wh integrated capacity. But also has a system for collecting rainwater that causes leaking and stored in a tank under the capsule so it can be used for drinking, while for the use of the bathroom, shower and kitchen use is a recycling system that uses the same amount of water. The measurements are Ecocapsule 445 x 225 x 260 cm and weighing 1500 kg. Its creators are to present the first functional prototype on 28 May during the Festival of the Pioneers in Vienna, and have said they are ready to put on sale by the end of the year, even expect 2016 to make these capsules under design or special requirements. Unfortunately it is not yet disclosed the price that will have every Ecocapsule, but their manufacturers mentioned that it will be possible to send it to anywhere in the world, of course, paying the shipping and the necessary conditions for the trip capsule without problems and arrive at your destination without mishaps. #Ecocapsule #design #architecture #renewableenergy #solar #wind #sustainable #SolarPower #vienna2016 #stupidDOPE #solarenergy #Bits

Wikkelhouse: a modular house is made of cardboard. The house we teach is not made of wood, brick or concrete nor is there in its structure, and is the main construction material is cardboard. The other striking thing Wikkelhouse project is its modularity. As a loaf of bread sliced ​​and modules presented this unique house. The segments are placed side by side resting on a chassis, and is expandable in size and options, but always longitudinally as the height and width is the same in each module. Each of these sections weighs around 500 kilos, and we are from kitchen to bathroom spaces through windows, and endings and beginnings of the work. Everything rests on a chassis, a kind of way that can move if we needed it this way: change orientation, move, etc. The system to create each section, is not so simple, each consists of 24 layers of corrugated cardboard or corrugated, and inside there is a thin layer of wood that makes the whole stronger and more durable. Finally we have a waterproof treatment abroad with a wood finish that makes it more attractive. The cardboard and paper products are becoming popular among designers, especially in projects focused on sustainability and costs. Its creators say the Wikkelhouse can have a life of 50 years and still in good condition. #Wikkelhouse #cardboard #sustainable #Wikkelhouse #CardboardHouse #Fiction #WikkelhouseModular #ModularHouse #modularity

China's Tiangong-1: station will crash into Earth in the next few months
 
01:59
China's 8.5-tonne Tiangong-1 space station, originally launched in 2011, has seen its orbit decay rapidly and is now expected to hit Earth in the coming months, The Guardian reported. Chinese officials told the UN in 2016 that they had lost the ability to correct the altitude of the station and expected it to fall to the ground between October 2017 and April 2018. But astrophysicist Jonathan McDowell of Harvard University told The Guardian which is now entering the atmosphere in a more even schedule faster, and probably see its disappearance in the first part of that range. Now that [its] perigee is below 300 kilometers [186 miles] and is in a denser atmosphere, the caries rate is increasing, "said McDowell." I hope it will be reduced in a few months from now, to late 2017 or early 2018. "He added that there is a small possibility that the station weighing up to 220 pounds (100 kilograms) could remain intact and hit the ground at high speed. Tiangong-1 is very small according to the standards of the space station, and can only accommodate a small crew of three taikonauts.Their main objective is to serve as a prototype for future generations of Chinese stations and support vessels.It is unlikely that scientists will have more than a few hours to face face on when and where Tiangong-1 will crash, but is unlikely to come down in a densely populated area where there would be appreciable probabilities of someone being injured or injured. rdian, on several occasions spacecraft such as the monstrously huge Skylab of the 77.5 tonne or the upper atmospheric research satellite have made uncontrolled descents towards Earth, but it has never been found that any of them have killed or injured anyone.

Australia: will build a solar farm with over 1.1 million batteries. Australia is raising its hand, and although it does not seek to compete in power generation, it will do so in storage capacity thanks to its more than 1.1 million batteries. Contrary to what many expected, this project is driven by private initiative and not by the government, which is run by Lyon Group, a company that is dedicated to the manufacture of batteries. This project has a budget of 1 billion dollars and is expected to start construction in the coming months. This farm will be located in Riverland, south of Australia, and the goal is to start operating by the end of the year. What makes this project important is that it will be the plant with the largest battery system in the world, which will be powered by 3.4 million solar panels. This will generate 330 MW of energy and store up to 100 MW, which in theory will be sufficient to supply energy to 100,000 average homes. This project comes at the same time as the Australian government is about to award a contract to manufacture a large battery, which would have a capacity of 100 MW, a project that would have a budget of 150 million dollars. However, the tender is still in progress without a definite date to announce the winning company. This is how Lyon Group has presented its project regardless of the outcome of the tender, because with this farm will be able to sell this energy to the government and obtain funding for future developments. #SolarEnergy, #Batteries #RenewableEnergy #AustraliaSolarFarm#RenewableEnergy #AbanTech #SolarPanels #Australia #Energy #project #LyonGroup #ManufactureBatteries #SolarFarm #BatterySystem #science #technology

WiFi Passive: new project needs 10,000 times less energy. This could change in the future thanks to a new project called WiFi Passive, which ensure that they need a minimum amount of energy to work. A group of researchers from the University of Washington have developed an interesting project funded by the National Science Foundation and Qualcomm, which seeks to make the WiFi connection more efficient, especially on mobile devices and in the Internet of Things. The new system known as Passive WiFi was introduced at the beginning of this 2016, but it is until now that they have been able to carry out the first tests with satisfactory results. They have been able to demonstrate that this connection consumes between 15 and 60 microvatios up to 10,000 times less energy than conventional methods, which means 1,000 times less energy than platforms like Bluetooth LR and Zigbee. One of the disadvantages is that decreasing the power consumption also decreases the bandwidth, at a maximum of 11 Mbps, falling below the capabilities offered by WiFi but above what we have with Bluetooth LE, The Passive WiFi is able to transmit information at a maximum distance of 30.5 meters. The current architecture of WiFi is based on digital and analog functions, the latter being the ones that consume more energy, such as being emitted a frequency signal. What makes this new system is that it separates the digital functions and relegates the analog to a single device connected to the electric current. On the other hand, devices that will use this connection, such as smartphones, will use an array of sensors that will serve to decode the data packets by means of a digital switch. According to its creators, this is compatible with the vast majority of mobile devices that exist in the market today. #Bluetooth #WiFi #PowerConsumption #Research #project #technology #NewSystem #BluetoothLR #Zigbee #connection #WiFiPassive #AbanTech

Europe Artificial islands: this is how you want to make the most of the wind for energy. The creation of artificial islands is not very common but is not new, and we have seen different uses as the basis of gigantic bridges. This time the objective is to achieve a site dedicated to renewable energies, with the construction of artificial energy islands in northern Europe. Although Energinet communicates now, the project has already been made public by TenneT in June 2016. The idea is to connect Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and Belgium with more than 10,000 turbines, and although in principle it is about an island Power Link does not rule out that there is more in the future, in fact specifies that the idea is that there are more participants in the project and that extends beyond the North Sea. Thus, one of the keys to the project is the location, the so-called Dogger Bank, which obviously has not been chosen at random. In addition to being geographically the most favorable point for the countries involved at the moment (and the proximity makes possible the wiring network, etc.), the wind conditions of this place are optimal according to the companies, besides there is not much Depth (greater depth, higher cost of construction). The goal is to reach 70,000-100,000 megawatts and the project will be signed on 23rd June in Brussels by these three companies with a long-term goal (in 2050): to meet the Paris Summit (COP21) requirements in the Which was agreed: Keep the average global temperature rise well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. Limit the increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius (which is expected to greatly reduce the risks and impact of climate change). That the global emissions reach their maximum level as soon as possible. With this idea, beyond the business objectives, it is tried to take advantage of the wind with a view to that in the future there are more similar projects. Another idea that adds to the objectives of each country is to achieve both wind and solar energy and that we have mentioned for some time, such as the Netherlands and 100% of its trains running on wind energy , Denmark breaking records in this energy. #EuropeArtificialIslands #Abantech #Europe #USA #UK #news #France #EU #world #Russia #Turkey #Islam #ArtificialIslands #RenewableEnergies #planet #WW3 #PhD #oil #fellowship #Africa #windenergy #wef #trade #SolarImpulse

Nasa Sky View: apps to explore the constellations and planets with your Android. Apps for Android so you can explore the sky and know all the constellations and planets around us. Sky View: is one of the most popular apps to explore the sky, and also one of the most complete. It works by augmented reality to only have to point your phone at the sky and to learn more about the constellations or planets nearby. If you do not want to use the camera because you're not outdoors, you can also explore space moving mobile. It also has a mode of time machine to see what it was like heaven or how it will be on a specific date and has night mode to make it more comfortable for the eyes. Star Walk 2: is another option available on Google Play and as SkyView also allows you to locate constellations pointing the phone in the direction you want, but if you do not want to get dizzy can also move simply sliding the finger and zoom with habitual gesture. The advantage of Star Walk is offering a very polished interface and graphics three-dimensional Star Map lets you navigate through space through the screen of your mobile phone, it is much richer in features, although there are payment options like the map comets and even warns when meteor showers like the Perseides. NASA App: If you like everything about astronomy, the official NASA app can not miss on your smartphone. The interface needs a facelift, but the content does not disappoint and is also constantly updated, so every day you will see new images and news to read. Section image is one of the most consulted, especially the picture of the day from NASA, which also can be set as wallpaper. Night Sky: is another application that lets you know the name of all the stars and constellations by just moving your phone, but also Night Sky tells you when is the right time to look at the stars, not mobile, but with your own eyes . Night Sky Tools: If you're looking for is a more detailed application, Night Sky Tools is a very interesting option. Besides allowing us navigate the sky and the names of the stars, this app also offers plenty of technical data for experts. Not the best interface and its management could be more intuitive, but it compensates Tools Night Sky with a complete set of tools that provides information about the closest as in this case Perseids rain events. Meteor Shower Calendar: is an app for lovers of meteor showers. we've already said when the Perseids will reach its peak intensity but with this application you can know details of other phenomena. Meteor Shower Calendar: Meteors classified as intensity and displays them in a kind of timeline so you know which you can see. You can also be set notifications to alert you when there are meteor showers and can see the weather forecast. #apps #iphone #android #iOS #technology #Mobile #tech #SPACE #AbanTech #NASA #GooglePlay #applications #app #StarMap #NightSky

MIT AI²: Creates an Artificial Intelligence system capable of detecting 85% of cyber attacks. The Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) at MIT have developed a system they have called AI² that is precisely designed to detect with high precision that are taking cyber-attacks in all kinds of scenarios, but also reduces the number of false positives considerably. Those responsible for the CSAIL explained how the current security systems usually have two modes of operation: or persons acting, or the performance of machines. Called "analysts led solutions" based on rules created by experts, and that makes those attacks that do not follow these rules are not detected. In machine-based systems the "anomaly detection" is used, but that makes many false positives occur. The solution combines both approaches MIT and makes the data detected by the machine are supervised by analysts that label and reviewed. This "system of active and continuous learning" can we refine the detection process that achieves remarkable results on the evidence of these experts. The team revealed how this system could detect 85% of cyber attacks, which is three times better detection than other systems, but also reduced the number of false positives in five times. The system was evaluated with 3.600 million "log lines" that were generated by millions of users over a period of three months. Kalyan Veeramachaneni, one of the main authors of the study, explained that "the more attacks detects the system, the information received by analysts, which in turn improve the accuracy of subsequent predictions. This interaction human-machine creates a fantastic waterfall effect. #AI² #MITAI² #CSAIL #MIT #Alzheimers #vuvuzela #Tor #SecurityRisks #security #science #robots #government #EC2Servers
