Montres design : En bois ou béton à vous de choisir ! | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Le temps c’est le luxe. Que l’on décide de prendre le temps d’en profiter ou de le consommer à 100 à l’heure on aime le faire avec une montre au poignet.
Une montre oui, mais une belle montre et pourquoi pas réalisée à partir de matériaux nobles autres que les métaux précieux habituels. Je pense au bois et aussi au béton qui est utilisé par certains créateurs.

“CHIUSO PER SPRECO vs APERTO PER CREATIVITÀ” | SIGNORI ROSSI – Corretti non corrotti | scatol8® | Scoop.it

 Le serrande abbassate in un quartiere di Torino non sono il segno sofferente della crisi, ma rappresentano l’inefficienza e la propensione, spesso inconsapevole e talvolta incompetente, delle Istituzioni. L’Inps chiede 1 milione e mezzo di euro di cauzione per allestire una mostra della durata di pochi giorni in 5 locali di 30 mq circa l’uno (circa 10mila euro al metro quadro), per di più sfitti e trascurati da anni.
Gli organizzatori dell’evento artistico Paratissima, insieme ai Signori Rossi, lanciano una campagna di sensibilizzazione per “invitare” le Istituzioni a cogliere le opportunità di valorizzazione, specie quando queste provengono dai cittadini e non richiedono “costi pubblici”

Key test for re-healable concrete

Key test for re-healable concrete | scatol8® | Scoop.it
Experimental concrete that patches up cracks by itself is to undergo outdoor testing.

 

What amazing potential this material has! It is exciting to see that innovations in building materials can come from such surprising fields as microbiology. Of course, when you consider how much of our building materials are naturally occuring, perhaps we should expect more advances for building from the scientists working with microbes!

 

The implications of this advancement could be incredible. Imagine the savings on maintenance and the reduction in traffic disruptions in major urban areas that would result from the successful commercialization of this concrete! Beyond streets, this material would be highly desirable in other structures as well!

Circuit Board Recycling: Just Add Water

Circuit Board Recycling: Just Add Water | scatol8® | Scoop.it

The National Physical Laboratory, with partners In2Tec and Gwent Electronic Materials, have developed a printed circuit board whose components can be easily disassembled by immersing them in hot water.

 

The technology is reported to allow 90% of the original structure to be used, which can be compared with less than 2% from traditional printed circuit boards.

IF This Than That | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Posted on sept. 19 2011 (!!!!)

 

The idea behind the site is to create simple connections based on if A occurred then B should result.

 

For example I created one that says if I post a tweet with a link in it than send that link to Pinboard.

 

Another one I created is at 4 PM I get an SMS reminder that it is time to start dinner.

 

These are just two examples of hundreds of if this then that connections that can be created.

The Future of Solar? software modeling fluctuations in solar radiation caused by weather changes

The Future of Solar? software modeling fluctuations in solar radiation caused by weather changes | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Solar power is notorious for being one of the most fluctuating sources of renewable energy. Predicting how much solar energy will be available just for the next couple of hours is hard. However, having the ability to do so has several benefits, the major one being better stability on the power grid – including data centers, as well as every other appliance that relies on it.

A small team of engineers at the University of California in San Diego has now released software that is capable of easily modeling fluctuations in solar radiation caused by weather changes. The software only needs input from one sensor, called a pyranometer, and data from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration models to work. In other words, the software will be able to foresee fluctuations at low costs.

The software is based on the solar variability law that was developed by graduate student Matthew Lave at the Jacobs School of Engineering at UC San Diego.

The code is already in high demand for the development in solar power plants – especially those that operate under requirements set by the Puerto Rico Power Electric Power Authority – new utility-scale power plants has to commit to limiting changes in power output to 10 percent per minute.

This is potentially a problem for solar power plants where fluctuations might be significantly higher – a change in output of more than 70% in per second is possible.

Having the ability to predict solar radiation and the output of our solar panels will give us enough time to do something about incoming fluctuations and smoothen out rapid changes. It will be interesting to see how successful the software will be in making solar power less of a fluctuating source.

The capacity of renewable energy on the grid is increasing every single day. It is clear that something needs to be done about stability, as our old base-load energy sources are becoming more and more obsolete.

What is zero waste?

The Future of Waste will look a lot like a zero waste future. Candice sets out the "seven essential elements" to zero waste in this blog, and explores them further in the blog. It is well worth a look:

 

1. Waste is anything unusable, unwanted and unrecyclable
2. Zero waste is a visionary goal
3. Waste must be avoided, not minimized or reduced
4. Waste is evidence of poor design
5. Utilize the precautionary principle to eliminate potential toxins
6. Adhere to the principle of highest and best use
7. Recognize and address institutional and ideological barriers

Windmill Street Art Raises Alternative Energy Awareness

Windmill Street Art Raises Alternative Energy Awareness | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Visitors to downtown Ann Arbor have been treated to a striking display of night time colored lights this summer, as wind-powered Whirlydoodleshave appeared on light poles, and in parks and parking structures around the city.Created by local inventor Timothy R. Jones, the Whirlydoodle is a fully functional miniature wind powered generator that produces beautiful spinning colors in response to the wind. With no batteries or cords, the resulting color show provides a striking and memorable visual display of prevailing wind patterns, while demonstrating the power and potential of alternative wind energy.

Wind causes the Whirlydoodle’s blades to rotate, powering a generator that produces electricity for the multicolored LEDs (light emitting diodes) mounted on the blades. At low speeds, only individual colors appear on the Whirlydoodle, which are followed by alternating colors at higher speeds. Still higher wind speeds cause additional colors to appear and the lights to become brighter, up to a maximum of about 30 MPH wind speed. An effect called persistence of vision creates the visual perception of colors that appear to change and blend.

Inventor Timothy Jones originally installed several Whirlydoodles on light poles in downtown Ann Arbor as a “guerilla” street art project to raise awareness of alternative energy. A QR code attached to the windmills led to an online survey where viewers could vote on whether they liked the Whirlydoodles. The public survey response was over 95% positive, and merchants were vocal in their appreciation of the mysterious Whirlydoodles in front of their stores. In response, the Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority has now officially sanctioned their presence, and the Whirlydoodles have appeared in several other locations with official municipal blessings...
