How goTenna will enable smart-phone off-line direct messaging by radio transmission

How goTenna will enable smart-phone off-line direct messaging by radio transmission | cool tech tools | Scoop.it

goTenna enables you to communicate without any need for central connectivity whatsoever—no cell towers, no wifi, no satellites—so when you're off-grid you can remain connected. In fact, goTenna will even work if your smartphone is in “Airplane Mode”! How does this magic work?

 

Pair your smartphone to your goTenna device wirelessly, using Bluetooth-LE. Your goTenna needs to be within 20 feet of your phone, so that the two can communicate with each other.

 

Use free app to type out a text message or share a location. Your smartphone will send the message to your goTenna, which will then shoot it out, via long-range radio waves (151-154 MHz), to the intended goTenna(s).

 

At the other end, the exact same thing happens, in reverse: the recipient goTenna sends your message over Bluetooth-LE to the smartphone app it's paired with. All of this happens in a matter of milliseconds.

Your goTenna will be able to transmit to any goTenna within range...

For those who venture into areas that have scarce cell pone coverage ... goTenna will enable direct p2p messaging beyond the reach of a cell tower (and when communications are down for any reason).


Expected to be available later this year. Can be pre-ordered at half price.

Richard Platt's curator insight, September 4, 2015 11:11 PM

Filed March 16 and published September 3, the patent describes a fuel cell system used to charge a “portable electronic device”, which is effectively defined in the patent as any computer with a display, a processor, and memory.   Chances are, you said “battery life”. Be it on a smartphone, tablet, notebook or even just a TV remote, it’s something which we can’t get our mind away from, because deep down inside we secretly know that the battery will eventually give up the ghost, leaving us absolutely stranded in between what we were doing.   There is, of course, no such thing as a free lunch, and fuel cell systems require the fuel to be replenished once it is exhausted, which the patent addresses by referencing removable cartridges. The patent drops the term “MagSafe connector”, which could mean that AAPL is looking to use the batteries in its MacBooks.  With longer battery life the Holy Grail for most hardware manufacturers, Apple could soon be turning to fuel cells to help its devices last for weeks between charges.   It details a “portable and cost-effective fuel cell system for a portable computing device”, which could use several different energy sources to provide power. Simply put, this would be an internal power system that could run a laptop for “days or even weeks without refueling”, according to the application.  As far as patent applications go, this one seems pretty broad; for example, it mentions many possible fuel sources, ranging from lithium hydride and water mix to liquid hydrogen.   It is also worth mentioning that only a tiny portion of Apple’s patents make it into actual products, and majority are patented in order to stop the competing companies from getting their hands on certain technologies.

IBM Solar Collector Magnifies Sun By 2000X – These Could Provide Power To The Entire Planet | The Unbounded Spirit

IBM Solar Collector Magnifies Sun By 2000X – These Could Provide Power To The Entire Planet | The Unbounded Spirit | cool tech tools | Scoop.it

A team at IBM recently developed what they call a High Concentration Photo Voltaic Thermal (HCPVT) system that is capable of concentrating the power of 2,000 suns, they are even claiming to be able to concentrate energy safely up to 5,000X, that’s huge.


The process of  trapping the sunlight produces water that can be used to produce filtered drinkable water, or used for other things like air conditioning etc. Scientists envision that the HCPVT system could provide sustainable energy and fresh water to communities all around the world.

 

“Each 1cmX1cm chip can convert 200-250 watts, on average, over a typical eight-hour day in a sunny region.


In the HCPVT system, instead of heating a building, the 90 degree Celsius water will pass through a porous membrane distillation system where it is then vaporized and desalinated.


Such a system could provide 30-40 liters of drinkable water per square meter of receiver area per day, while still generating electricity with a more than 25 percent yield or two kilowatts hours per day.

Solar energy is one of the most promising natural resources that can be used for energy. If the technology is further developed with the ability to contain the energy of sunlight, this will be the standard energy source used around the world.
