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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

The so-called “right-sized” prefab design comes in at a comfortable 760 square feet, with smart home trimmings from head to toe. Flex House, presented by Green Builder Media, is the second and newest concept from California-based modular housing company Shelter Dynamics. From the outset, the curved roofline suggests that this efficiency-focused design doesn’t skimp on the architectural details that might charm buyers of traditional houses. Inside, pale floors and walls are garnished by arched doorways, recessed lighting, plus built-in seating and storage. Upon entry, you’ll find two living areas: a main living room to the left, and a nook to the right, which leads to a bonus “niche” space before you get to the kitchen. In the kitchen, two windows bring in light, while 24’’ Bosch appliances make the most of the space. All the cabinets in the model home are from Ikea. Of course, the Flex House wouldn’t be the Flex House without its full suite of smart home integrations and sustainability-minded fixtures. These include: a Nexus eWater greywater recycling system, Rachio WaterSense smart irrigation controller that optimizes water use based on weather data, Sylvania smart lighting, Lutron smart shades, Wemo smart plugs, Sensi smart thermostat, and Kwikset smart lock. And all of this is integrated with the smart assistant Amazon Alexa, which can be controlled by voice or app.

After showing three models at the 2017 Detroit Motor Show, China's GAC Motor will return to the heart of the US automotive industry for the second year in a row. GAC - which sells cars in China under the Trumpchi and Gonow brands - will show a new electric car concept and two of its existing models, all as a preamble to its entry into the US market in 2019. One of the cars that GAC brings to the Detroit Motor Show 2018 is expected to be its GA8 luxury sedan. It's almost as long as a Genesis G80 or a Volvo S90, although the only available engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit that produces only 198 horsepower. It is likely that the GAC needs a more powerful option to compete in the US. On the other hand, the GA8 comes with a refrigerator between its rear seats, something you would normally expect to find in a Rolls-Royce or Bentley. It is also expected that GAC will bring its GM8 minivan to Detroit. With only four minivans on the US market-the Chrysler Pacifica, the Honda Odyssey, the Kia Sedona and the Toyota Sienna-the segment could benefit from the arrival of a new competitor. The third vehicle to be shown in Detroit would be an electric car concept, about which GAC has not elaborated. GAC announced in November that it would begin exporting Trumpchi brand cars to the United States in 2019, although it could change its name due to its similarity to President Trump's surname, according to The New York Times. The first GAC vehicle sold in the US it will be the GS8, a large SUV that the manufacturer already showed at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. If GAC fulfills its plans, it will be the first Chinese automotive brand to sell its cars in the United States. The cars that are manufactured in China, including Buick Envision and Cadillac CT6 Plug-In Hybrid, are currently sold in the US, but are products of non-Chinese manufacturers. GAC and other Chinese firms have tried to enter the US market. UU for years, but skepticism about the quality of their models and other factors have always prevented that from happening.

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

Iceland massive holes causes by violent volcanic eruption open up in glacier. Giant holes, some as much as 1,300 feet wide, have opened up in Iceland’s largest glacier, the result of geothermal heat waves caused by volcanic eruptions. Following fierce activity near the Vatnajökull glacier between 2014 and 2015, seismic eruptions have changed the landscape of the region in its entirety, leading to increased temperatures from the earth. Geologist Magnús Tumi Gudmundsson told the Icelandic news agency RUV that the waves of heat energy emanating from the volcanic rock below had melted through ice hundreds of feet thick, forming the remarkable holes known as calderas. The creation of the giant holes means that the ground beneath the glacier has been left exposed for the first time in hundreds or thousands of years, since the glacier itself was formed. In the wake of the recent volcanic eruptions in the area, known as Bárdarbunga, Gudmundsson has warned authorities and researchers of the need to be vigilant against the creation of any more calderas, which raise the likelihood of a glacial flood. These floods, known by their Icelandic name (jökulhlaup), occur when the dam that contains a glacial lake fails. They can occur simply as the result of a buildup in pressure but are more likely to be caused by a volcanic eruption or earthquake. In 2010, the second eruption of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull from a glacier-covered vent caused the emergency evacuation of 800 people living in the flood zone. The glacial melt raised local river levels by as much as 10 feet and caused the closure of major roads. The Vatnajökull icecap is the second largest glacier in Europe. It covers some 8 percent of Iceland, running over the top of several volcanos. Over the years, seismic activity has led to a series of glacial floods in the area. Calderas, when they do not appear through melted glacial ice, form from collapsed volcanoes. The massive craters are created when huge volcanic explosions blow out the sides of the volcano, or the surface rock falls into an empty magma chamber. The eruption of a supervolcano in Yellowstone National Park formed a caldera about 50 miles across that lies beneath most of the park itself. Yellowstone is a hot spot for geothermal and seismic activity.

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

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

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

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. Inside the stadium is planned to install a circular double-sided OLED, where rumor has it that LG will be in charge of developing a big screen.

Alaska volcano Erupts: The flights may be disrupted, raising the aviation alert level to red. A volcano in Alaska that has been active for the past six months has erupted again, raising the aviation alert level to red. According to Bloomberg, the Alaska Volcano Observatory detected an eruption of the Bogoslof Volcano in the Aleutian Islands at approximately 2:16 p.m. on Sunday. The eruption lasted for 55 minutes and sent an ash plume at least 35,000 feet into the air. In response to the eruption, the Aviation Color Code has been raised to red, the highest possible level. Airborne volcanic ash can interfere with and even destroy jet engines above 20,000 feet. Flights between North America and Asia are likely to be grounded, potentially for several days. Bogoslof Volcano is a submarine stratovolcano, a conical volcano built up over many layers. Its absolute summit forms Bogoslof Island, located on the southern edge of the Bering Sea, 35 miles northwest of Unalaska Island, 850 miles southwest of Anchorage. Over the last six months, according to U.S. News & World Report, the island has more than tripled in size as a result of frequent eruptions. The last eruption occurred on May 17, sending ash clouds 34,000 feet high; Sunday’s eruption marks the most significant to date. Starting in December, the volcano erupted almost daily. As of March 11, 2017, Bogoslof Island had grown to 242 acres in size and is expected to continue to grow. The first known emergence of Bogoslof above sea level was in 1796, during an underwater eruption; another island about 2,000 feet northwest of Bogoslof, called Castle Rock, represents another cone of the same volcano which erupted later that year. Before December, 2016, Bogoslof’s last known eruption was in 1992, and Bogoslof’s current period of activity has come as a surprise to scientists. Scientists still have a lot to learn about both the location and activity of underwater volcanoes; many modern techniques for identifying submarine volcano eruption rely entirely on sound. According to the AVO, the ash cloud may reach as high as 45,000 feet, and while seismic and infrared detectors on neighboring islands, as well as satellite imagery, show all-quiet at Bogoslof, the volcano is “unpredictable” and AVO has issued a warning that “Bogoslof volcano remains at a heightened state of unrest and in an unpredictable condition. Additional explosions producing high-altitude volcanic clouds could occur at any time.” They also warned that low-level explosions occurring below their detection threshold may be ongoing and that approaching the island is unwise. The National Weather Service Alaska Aviation Weather Unit also issued an alert that the ash cloud may climb as high as 50,000 feet. #nature #AlaskaVolcano #Flights #VolcanoBogoslof #AbanTech #technology #tech #SubmarineStratovolcano #Bogoslof #Scientists #SeismicDetectors #SatelliteImages #MeteorologicService #alaska #AshCloud #eruption #volcano #publishe

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

Most of us are aware of the volcanic eruptions taking on land. Scientists constantly monitor the volcanic activities of these easy to observe volcanoes. But they don’t have much data about the underwater volcanoes. That is why they missed a big underwater volcano that erupted within 100 years. Scientists say that it is difficult to monitor volcanic activities occurring at the bottom of the sea because it is quite challenging to reach the spot of the activity, as well as the visibility of such volcanoes, is quite low. But as per the latest reports, researchers have got hold of the largest underwater volcanic eruption called as Havre Volcano. In 2012, when the scientists got reports of massive debris or raft floating near New Zealand, they speculated that something strange might have happened. With the passage of time, the raft grew larger and reached almost 241 square kilometers. This made scientists suspect that something massive is happening underwater. A group of researchers from New Zealand, Australia and the U.S. led by Rebecca Carey at the University of Tasmania in Australia sent Sentry, an autonomous vehicle, to map the raft area. Then they sent a remotely operated vehicle Jason to identify and collect the volcanic material. At first, the researchers thought the site to be a violent one, but they were completely surprised when they analyzed the data collected by those vehicles. The found out that the volcanic eruption was happening pretty calmly and lava flows were moving slowly. The molten rock released from the eruption resulted in the formation of a huge cone of cooled rock around the site of the eruption. The less explosive eruption would have been possible due high pressures at the bottom of the ocean. So, it can be said that the largest underwater volcano was a less violent one. The researchers felt that poor understanding and lack of information about the oceanic volcanoes resulted made this massive underwater volcanic eruption get unnoticed in 100 years. Study author Adam Soule from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute said that this issue often happens with work in deep oceans. “We had preconceived notions of what we’d find, but not until we got out there did we get a sense of what had happened, he said.” As per the study, there are plenty of data about the oceanic volcanoes that are still unknown, and these oceanic volcanoes make up 70 percent of the magma that Earth spits out.

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

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.

Samsung smart contact lenses: with built-in camera is at this point the new Samsung patent. It has come to light interesting patent That tells of a lens with built-in camera That would be developed by Samsung. This week, the patent office in South Korea will just give Samsung a patent That is called "method of manufacture and operation of smart contact lenses for augmented reality" Which Summarized is a pair of lenses That Would Have a screen, a camera, antenna and various sensors. The sensors would be responsible for detecting movement of the eye and eyelid, This would serve as an input method for activating features, for example, only take pictures flashing Could or activate the screen to see what They are related to our eyes seeing content. Although the screen of the lens would project images Directly into the eye, we need to be connected to another device That would serve as a platform for content That is transmitted to the lens, In This case a smartphone, Which would be responsible to process all the information. Interestingly this is not something new, it has-been Reported That Samsung has-been working on This project since 2014, so it Might even match the trademark "Gear Blink" presented the same year, a brand That Is Currently registered in Korea and the United States. So far it is unknown When We Could See These lenses on the market, or if it ever will see, and to remember That a patent does not guarantee That we will see a product With These características, however, is very attractive to Have a accessory Such as it would be an interesting evolution to the notion That Google filed with glass. #Samsung #SamsungSmartContactLenses #sunglasses #contacts #circlelenses##SamsungContactLenses #SmartContactLenses #contactlenses #freshlook #Halloween #eyecare #circlelens #glasses #eyes #vision

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

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

Jelly and sponges: first animals what appeared on Earth. A new paper published in Nature Ecology and Evolution suggests that old jellies, not sponges, represent the oldest branch of the family tree of animals. Researchers at Vanderbilt University and the University of Wisconsin Madison who conducted the study are not the first to make this claim, but used an emerging technique to analyze literally hundreds of thousands of genes, showing that comb jellies have The oldest genome of any animal. The researchers say the method could be used to solve other long-standing problems in evolutionary biology, but given the highly interpretive nature of their findings, it is likely that the sponge gelatine debate will continue to infuriate. Scientists noted animals on the so-called tree of life through ocular organisms, designating those who appeared simple as more primitive in terms of their evolutionary position. Things changed with the advent of genomics, when scientists gained the ability to read and compare the DNA of organisms and classify them accordingly. This new field, called phylogenetics, has revolutionized the way we define evolutionary relationships, but there are many gaps between the many branches of the tree of life-including the first trunk at the base of the animal tree. Traditional phylogenetic techniques have resolved about 95 percent of all evolutionary relationships, but five percent of the cases remain irresistible, leading to controversy. To understand why certain relationships in the tree of life continue to be controversial, the authors of the new study examined preexisting datasets and compared the individual genes of jellies and sponges to finally arrive at what they believe to be the first Animal of the world. #Earth #NewArticle #NatureEcology #AbanTech #technology #Evolution #FamilyAnimals #Traditional #PhylogeneticTechniques #Researchers #DescendedJellies #evolution #phylogenomics #genetics #AnimalEvolutio #AncientAnimals #CombJellies #MarineJellies #Sponges #biology #taxonomy #science #Gizmodo

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

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

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

Samsung Blind Cap: cap with bluetooth that will revolutionize the Paralympic swimming. Samsung and Cheil Spain have spent months developing the Blind Cap. It is a simple swim cap that integrates a Bluetooth system vibration, so that the coach may warn the athlete when it reaches the end of the lane without touching it. The cap has been developed in collaboration with the Spanish Paralympic Committee, and all you have to do is press a button coach in a specific application. In doing so the athlete cap vibrate, warning that has reached the end of the lane and it is the right time to make the turn. The application will be available to watch Samsung Gear S2 and any type of mobile Android, and also record data for the year as the total rate or lap times, displaying them with graphs on the mobile for the coach to have a better view of how it is carrying out the exercise. Blind Cap not arrive in time for the next Paralympics, but already being tested. Samsung started talking about the project in May, and is using the framework of the Olympic Games in Rio for more impact. At the moment it is only a prototype, so there is still no date set for the sale, but aims to be an invention that, although simple, could help thousands of athletes. #samsung #BlindCap #paralympic #normalizar #AbanTech #Superhumans #technology #Mobile #android #tech #application #deportistas #prototipo #GorroBluetooth #CheilSpain #sportsmen, #prototype

Source solar panel: Generates drinking water instead of electricity. The shortage of potable water is today one of the most important problems on our planet, which affects mainly to remote areas and developing countries, which in turn causes bad conditions of hygiene and health, as well as a Significant impact on the quality of life of people. Source is a solar panel created by startup Zero Mass Water that aims to extract moisture from the air to condense it to provide drinking water. Cody Friesen, an engineering professor at Arizona State University, is the head of Zero Mass Water and responsible for the development of Souce, which is born from a very simple principle in nature, that we all own the air that We breathe, however, almost nobody is of the water that drinks. Friesen mentions that anyone with air conditioning is able to draw water from the air, so there is no magic. To understand the operation of Source just imagine a salt shaker with grains of rice, which are able to absorb moisture to keep the salt dry, and this consists of this solar panel. Source has a material that acts as if it were those grains of rice, only here the moisture is extracted from the air. All the extracted water is purified by filters, in addition to adding calcium and magnesium to match the taste and pH of the bottled water. This panel is capable of generating up to 5 liters of water each day, enough for a family of four according to the company. #Source #Air #water #solar #Abantech #panel #energy #HygieneHealth #electricity #family #SourceSolarPanel #technology #innovation #DrinkingWater #Health #pH #renewableenergy #greenenergy

McLaren F1 OX: van transport system. No attractive design and latest technology in any of its elements, what mattered here was to create a van that for pieces could be put in a box and send to Africa. In this project called OX are the hands of designer Gordon Murray, who has had as its mission to shape a vehicle that could well be sold in Ikea. One of the important premises when creating OX, while joining the sixty parties thereto should take no more than twelve hours at the three people in charge, they would not be specialists in these conflicts. Underdeveloped places in Africa could find a cheap and easy way to mount a transport system capable of carrying about 1,900 kilos. Gordon Murray is the head of boxy vehicle designer, best known for special automotive adventures as the spectacular McLaren F1 or the economic and supermini T.27. But it is not only in the project, accompanies Torquil Norman philanthropist, owner of Global Vehicle Trust, which is the company that gives life to the project. It all started about six years ago, and they are now in the final stages of testing. The system chosen is not to drive all four wheels, it contenpla with the front to get a lighter and affordable package, the cost would be 5% of a normal car. For its height and design is able to get into rivers with up to one meter high, or complicated ways, and that infrastructure is going to move where not invite a lot to think about comfort. Its creators say that no manufacturer is interested in creating an affordable and capable vehicle to areas as discussed, they made thoroughly lost without intention of being back nothing in return. They have already spent between 3 and 4 million in the design phase. As for the engine, not anything special, but well known to nourish and easily fix: diesel engine with 2.2 liter displacement Ford origin. #van #Africa #GordonMurray#AbanTech #Makers #Vehicles #ox #vehicle #automobile #technology #news #TransportSystem #GordonMurray #GlobalVehicleTrust #GVT #OxTruck #McLarenF1

China Solar Power: doubled its capacity and is the largest producer in the world. According to the NEA, China closed 2016 with a photovoltaic capacity of 77.42 gigawatts, an increase of 34.54 gigawatts during the 12 months of last year. No doubt this is an impressive achievement, but we must bear in mind that we are talking about total capacity, something that may not sound so impressive if the relationship is made to the total population of the country. Today, photovoltaic solar energy represents only 1% of China's total energy production for China, while the renewable energy mix already occupies 11%, and plans to increase this to 20% % By 2030. For this, China will be investing $ 364 billion just for new renewable energy projects by 2020. Adding to this is the recent announcement that the Beijing government will reduce its use of coal by 30% by 2017, which has become a priority in the city in the face of alarming levels of pollution. To achieve this, four large coal-fired power plants will be closed down to be replaced by new solar farms this year, as well as new incentives for the sale of electric cars, as it is also contemplated to remove 300,000 old vehicles that contribute to the increase Of these levels. The reality is that China is betting very strongly to lead the adoption of clean energy, where despite the disadvantage of its large population, has large regions where it is feasible to install solar thermal and photovoltaic farms, as well as wind farms. #Energy #technology #SolarThermalFarms #AbanTech #photovoltaic #SolarEnergy #science #sun #EnvironmentalCare #pollution #CoalFired #PowerPlants #ElectricCars #CleanEnergy #WindFarms #GovernmentBeijing #CoalReduction #environment #ecology

Conservatory: Huge "horizontal skyscraper" rises in China The reference of the developer CapitaLand to the skybridge as a horizontal skyscraper is an exaggeration. Called the Conservatory measures 300 m in length. Its curved structure is supported at a height of 250 m by four mixed-use towers, which include offices, apartments, commercial premises and hotels. An adjacent pair of 350 m towers are joined by a pair of smaller air bridges. In total, the project has eight planned towers. The interior of the Conservatory has an infinity pool, sky gardens and observation platforms. It includes a steel structure that weighs 12,000 tons and is enclosed with 3,200 pieces of glass and 4,800 aluminum panels. The engineering company Arup is lending its expertise to help the team navigate potential hazards such as high winds and seismic activity. To construct the steel structure it is first divided into nine segments: four segments that are built above the four towers, three segments of the medium suspended between the four towers that are prefabricated on the ground and lifted in place by hydraulic jacks; and two cantilevered segments that are assembled in short sections from the two ends of the towers. It is expected that the steel structure of the Conservatory will be fully operational by mid 2018. After this, the glazing will be installed along with the trees and plants for the gardens of heaven.

Oak Ridge Summit: U.S. its powerful new supercomputer that will have a capacity of 200 petaflops. We live in amazing times, where the battle being waged United States and China for domination of the special high-powered computing is the clearest example. A few days ago just we met Sunway TaihuLight, the new supercomputer Chinese manufacturing that came to dethrone the Tianhe-2, also Chinese, with surprising speed of 93 petaflops. But the battle has just begun, since the United States has confirmed the creation of Summit, its powerful new supercomputer that will have a capacity of 200 petaflops bestial. The United States Department of Energy through the Oak Ridge National Laboratory has confirmed that they have started construction of Summit, the new supercomputer that will have a capacity of 200 petaflops (where a petaflop is the ability to perform trillion arithmetic operations per second) and it will be powered by a Power9 IBM and Nvidia GPUs Volta system. This announcement is clearly a response to Sunway TaihuLight, where Americans do not want to show they are at a disadvantage despite development in high-performance computing in China has grown dramatically since 2001, who today has 167 operating supercomputers while the United States has 165 operating more Summit and two other systems that arrive in 2018. In addition to Summit, United States prepares 'Sierra' also based on IBM system that is expected to have an output of 150 petaflops, will be located at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and will start operations in mid 2018. On the other hand we have 'Aurora' which it will be located at the Argonne National Laboratory by the end of 2018 which involved Cray systems Computing and Intel, estimated to have a capacity of 100 petaflops. But this does not end here, because you have to remember that in 2015 Barack Obama authorized the creation of the Strategic National Initiative Computing, with which began the development of the first exascale supercomputer that will operate at 1,000 petaflops, a beast that will be positioned as the most powerful computer ever created and will be designed to bring the operations of many of the government agencies in the country. So the battle is just beginning and it gets more and more interesting. #Summit #job #traffic #jobs #Hiring #mountain #Healthcare #hiking #Nursing #web #sun #RIP #hwpl #peace #summit #korea #press #warp

One of the greatest mysteries of modern physics is to find out why antimatter did not destroy the Universe at the beginning of time. In fact, it seems clear that during the Big Bang, the great explosion from which the Universe was born in which we live, was generated as much matter as antimatter. Both are identical, but with opposite electrical charges, which means that to maintain symmetry, matter and antimatter are destroyed at the moment of contact (one minus one equals zero). However, the mere fact that we are here means that in the beginning, in some way, matter could be imposed on antimatter and give shape to everything we can see today. To explain this discrepancy, physicists assume that there must be some difference somewhere between ordinary matter and its image in the mirror (antimatter), something other than simple electric charge, and that it is so subtle that we have not yet been able to see it. That is why a team of scientists at CERN, the great European laboratory for particle physics, has carried out the most precise measurement of the magnetic moment of an antiproton (the proton antiparticle) so far, a number that measures how a particle before a magnetic force, and have found that it is exactly the same as that of the proton. Which only adds to the mystery. All our observations, "says Christian Smorra, CERN physicist in the BASE experiment (Baryon-Antibaryon Symmetry Experiment), have found complete symmetry between matter and antimatter, and that is why the Universe should not exist." However, adds the frustrated researcher, "there must be an asymmetry somewhere, but we simply can not find where the difference lies." The Standard Model of Physics predicts that the Big Bang produced the same amount of matter as antimatter, but both, being opposites, should have annihilated each other in a few moments, which would have left nothing to make galaxies, stars, planets or humans. To try to explain the mystery, physicists have been trying for decades to find the differences between matter and antimatter, some discrepancy that explains how matter, as we can see around us, was able to dominate. To this end, extremely precise measurements of all types of properties of particles and antiparticles have been carried out: mass, electric charge. One of these properties, however, the magnetic moment of the antiproton, was not known with the same precision as the others. And ten years ago, Stefan Elmer and his team from the BASE experiment set out to measure that property with unprecedented accuracy. For this, physicists had to develop completely new techniques and calculations, and to build instruments that did not yet exist. Once prepared, they first measured the magnetic moment of a proton, then do the same with an antiproton, something much more difficult, since the antiprotons were destroyed immediately when they came in contact with any kind of matter in their environment. In order to be able to do the measurements, scientists had to first produce the longest-lived antimatter particles ever created in a laboratory, something they achieved in 2015. For the first time, indeed, they were able to "store" antimatter for a whole year within a special container, a "trap" made of electric and magnetic fields. This was how they managed to measure the magnetic moment of antiprotons with a precision 350 times higher than what has been achieved so far. "Our results," says Elmer himself, "are the culmination of many years of continuous research and development, and one of the most difficult measurements ever made with this type of instrument." But in the Universe, the great game of difference continues. And failing to seek differences in the magnetic moment, hopes are now set in another experiment, ALPHA, in which scientists will study the effects of gravity on antimatter and will try to find out if they differ in anything that has on ordinary matter. If so, the great mystery will be solved once and for all. If not, we will have to keep looking for the reason why antimatter did not destroy us right after the Big Bang.

ITOP 3D printer: Print bones, cartilage and muscles which can then be implanted. A group of researchers from the Institute for Regenerative Medicine, Wake Forest, United States, claims to have developed a 3D printer capable of printing large-scale human tissue. It does this using an "ink" in which a biodegradable plastic are mixed with human cells, and which may create organic tissue such as muscle, cartilage or bones. This printer has been presented in the journal Nature Biotechnology, and with it two major obstacles could have been overcome: getting tissues are able to survive and they can continue to grow once implanted. Now they are starting the necessary tools to start testing them on human research. Anthony Atala, chief research scientist, says this is the first bioprinter able to print large-scale tissue that could be implanted in humans. It also explains that once the structure have been printed, they can keep it alive for several weeks until it is finally implemented. Until now such printers were only capable of printing tissues sizes up to about 0.007 inches. This new model, called Integrated Printing System Organ and Tissue or ITOP, seems to have overcome these barriers by mixing the cells of muscle and cartilage, and even stem cells derived from amniotic fluid, with other biodegradable plastics. This plastic called polycaprolactone mission is to keep the ways in which the tissues are printed while the cells are growing and taking root in organisms. After it is degraded until only organic tissue. As its creators say in his article, the ITOP alternates plastic and organic material. This alternation between soft and hard seems to be the key for which say they are getting tissue to survive, grow and maintain the structural integrity necessary to be implanted with guarantees. In his first tests they have been implanted cartilage animal-shaped ear bone fragments created by mother and strips of muscle cells, and say they have verified that these tissues survive unless rejected by bodies that accept to grow blood vessels in them . After these first encouraging results, researchers are beginning to test the long-term security of their impressions. If all goes as planned, the intention is to soon develop implantable tissues in human bodies, and thus revolutionizing the world of prosthetics as we know it today. #iTop #Empleo #ICCP #Madrid #arquitecto #SinExperiencia #Alicante #XXL #Valencia #ucanhaveit #ubttm #3dprinter #3dprinting #3D #videogames #twitch #startup #3dprint #entrepreneur #socialmedia #livestream #SEO

Campi Flegrei: Europe's most destructive supervolcano could be about to erupt. Campi Flegrei is an extensive volcanic area that is located just 9 kilometers northwest of Naples, Italy. According to a study published now in Nature Communications, the area is entering a critical state of pressure, which could lead to an eruption. The team of volcanologists of the National Institute of Geophysics, led by Giovanni Chiodini, says that we must be expectant. It should be remembered that currently around half a million people live in the area. The supervolcano consists of 24 different craters and a whole series of large volcanic buildings, most of them submerged under the Mediterranean Sea. According to Chiodini, we should not necessarily begin to evacuate people already, since in the present situation it is practically impossible to predict what the behavior of the boiler will be in the future. Since its formation, Campi Flegrei has erupted twice, one 35,000 years ago and another 12,000, in addition to another smaller one happened in 1538, that lasted eight days. Also 200,000 years ago, long before the current boiler was formed, the whole area erupted in a huge eruption. A study published in 2010 by experts at the University of Chicago suggests that this event came to cause a nuclear winter, with ashes blocking sunlight for years. In order to measure the ferocity of a volcano eruption, the IEV volcanic explosivity index, a scale ranging from 0 to 8, is used, based on the volume of ejected material, the height of the eruptive cloud and other variables. In the last 10,000 years there has been no eruption with an IEV of 8. #Vesuvio #CampiFlegrei #protezionecivile #AbanTech #supervolcano #eruption #earthquake #ricercatori #Europa #protezionecivile #Italy #kilometers #caldera #geology #science, #volcano #formation #CampiFlegrei #volcanic #ExplosivityIEV

Most of the plans for the Mars bases make being a settler as desirable as installing a house on a barrel of oil, but an MIT team has devised a plan for a city on Mars based on the architecture of a tree. Taking the first place in the Architecture section of the 2017 Mars City Design competition, the Redwood Forest concept is intended to provide settlers not only protection from the harsh Martian environment, but open public spaces filled with plants and abundant water. As Sir Elton John said, Mars is not the kind of place to raise your children. Although the Red Planet is the most habitable of the planets, apart from ours, in the Solar System, it remains a terribly hostile place. The night temperatures shame Antarctica, the air is only one hundredth of the pressure of the Earth and is composed mainly of carbon dioxide, the deadly UV radiation falls during the day and the cosmic rays are present 24/7. It is also dry to the point where the soil is composed of corrosive substances with very unpleasant properties. Due to these drawbacks, it is difficult to create designs for manned outposts that do not look like a collection of cans that make the Amundsen-Scott South Pole station look like a luxury resort. To break with this stereotype, the team of nine MIT students led by MIT postdoc Valentina Sumini and assistant professor Caitlin Mueller adopted an interdisciplinary approach that uses the location and architecture of the system, as well as the water collected from the polar ice caps. Martians to supply as habitats, for a design capable of hosting 10,000 inhabitants in the comfort of the sleeve-shirt.

SolarStratos: solar plane could cross the stratosphere. The efficiency of solar energy is becoming more interesting. This learning curve shows the so-called Swanson effect in honor of its creator, Richard Swanson, founder of SunPower, which states that cost per watt drops by 20% each time global solar capacity doubles. Between 1975 and 2012, photovoltaic panels have gone from 2 to 45% of their conversion rate from solar to electricity. That's why we can see more impressive things as far as solar-powered vehicles are concerned. As is the case with SolarStratos, a solar airplane that could ascend to the stratosphere, that is, above 20,000 meters commercial aircraft usually fly at 10,000 meters. With 25 meters of wingspan and 450 kg, it aspires to be the first aircraft to ascend and fly for fifteen minutes to 25,000 meters. It is propelled by two electric motors that will produce 50 HP, and will need two and a half hours to ascend to 25,000 meters. This milestone is expected to be achieved in the middle of 2017. It will be piloted by Raphaël Domjan, but in principle it could accompany him Bertrand Piccard, the pilot who took the plane Solar Impulse up to 9420 meters altitude, and also managed to travel around the world in Balloon in 19 days, 21 hours and 55 minutes, back in 1999. #SolarStratos #space #solar #energy #Science #Solar #fly #technology #stratosphere #RichardSwanson #SunPower #electricity #SolarPoweredVehicles #CommercialAircraft #AbanTech #SolarAirplane #Plane
