13 Unexpected Sources of Energy that Could Save the World

13 Unexpected Sources of Energy that Could Save the World | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it
If humans are going to keep living in the style to which we're accustomed, we need to find alternatives for fossil fuels. Partly that's because we need to reduce pollution -- and partly because those fossil fuels are going to run out. But alternative forms of energy may look a lot weirder than you think.

Scientists develop silicon cells capable of absorbing infrared radiation from the sun

Scientists develop silicon cells capable of absorbing infrared radiation from the sun | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it
Researchers have developed a silicon photovoltaic cell capable of turning infrared radiation into electricity. The sun is an inexhaustible source of energy which well-exploited, could solve many of the energy suply problems we have today. The photovoltaic cell, commonly known as solar cell, is a device capable of turning solar light into electricity. However, there are many obstacles that prevent a massive use, such as a relatively high cost (0.02 euros per watt generated) and the low efficiency of silicon based solar cells, around 17 per cent.

Joel Barker's curator insight, March 28, 8:19 PM

One of the most important attributes of new technology should be how long they last. Especially things like jet engines can benefit from this kind of "life extension." The implications, of course, are significant for the engine builders since these new engines could last three times longer.  JB

Unlocking the Internet of Things

Unlocking the Internet of Things | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

Storms of new data are growing bigger by the day, flowing in from social media, new internal corporate processes, retail and market transactions, electronic sensors and other machines. Especially machines.

 

The masses of new data follow technology innovation and by 2020 industry analysts predict there will be up to 30 billion devices connected to the Internet with unique IP addresses. This compares with 2009, when were a ‘mere’ 2.5 billion connected devices.

 

But what are we meant to do with the Things of the Internet? The amounts of data being created are so large that they are measured in quintillions of bytes – 2.5 quintillion bytes of new data are created every day.

Edurne Mugarza's curator insight, October 19, 2013 5:55 AM

Un claro ejemplo de cómo la biotecnología aporta avances útiles en la medicina. La impresión en 3D de órganos puede significar una gran mejoría en el mundo de los trasplantes, ya que se disminuirían los rechazos. Soy consciente de que todavía estamos muy lejos de poder "crear" órganos que puedan ser usados en un cuerpo humano, pero claramente éste es un primer paso. 

Trent Schaefer's curator insight, March 28, 8:39 AM

This article explains how technology is advancing to allow human organs to be printed on demand using stem-cells which can be obtained through harvesting amniotic fluids from pregnant women. It also talks about how it will revolutionalise the practice of medicine.
