Copenhagen Wheel: The Invention That Will Change Biking

Copenhagen Wheel: The Invention That Will  Change Biking | Tech | Scoop.it
The most common reason why people don’t bike is the amount of energy needed to do it. Developed by researchers at MIT, this device snaps onto your bike and helps you conserve energy. And it does it in an ingenuous, remarkable way. It’s called the Copenhagen Wheel, and it stores the energy that you already use, and saves it for when you need it most. Hills become flat, and you no longer have to expel loads of energy to get around. Curious? Watch the video for more information.

Innovative Wind Turbine Smaller Than a Penny Could Power Your Smartphone | EcoWatch | Tech | Scoop.it
The micro-windmills designed by electrical engineering professor Dr. J.-C. Chiao and research associate Smitha Rao are so tiny that a single grain of rice could hold about 10 of them, according to a news release from the university. The duo envision embedding hundreds of micro-windmills in a sleeve for a cell phone. Users could generate electricity for the phone’s battery by waving it in the air or by holding it up to an open window on a windy day. Thousands of turbines could be mounted on home or building walls to produce the energy needed for lighting, security, wireless communication and more.

Australia: New Plastic Means Almost Anything Can Be Made From Hemp

Australia: New Plastic Means Almost Anything Can Be Made From Hemp | Tech | Scoop.it
Today's plastics are made from petroleum, which means we are polluting the atmosphere and putting products that cannot biodegrade into our environment. But Zeoform, a new company based in Australia has created a new kind of plastic made only from water and cellulose taken from hemp plants -- meaning the plastic is not only eco-friendly but biodegradable. The company's patented process converts the cellulose fibers found in hemp into a super-strong, high tech molding material capable of being formed into 100 percent nontoxic and biodegradable products... The company says their product relies only upon the natural process of hydrogen bonding that takes place when cellulose fibers are mixed with water. No glue or other bonding material is necessary, because the bond already created is so strong. The final material can be turned into almost anything, and can be cut, routed, machined, drilled, screwed, nailed and glued in the same way wood can be.

Artificial leg operated by thought

Artificial leg operated by thought | Tech | Scoop.it

The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) have published a long-time case study on the world’s first thought operated artificial leg. While there are several different thought operated arm prosthesis being developed in the world, the RIC’s leg is the first of it’s kind.


Via Szabolcs Kósa
Mark's insight:

My first leg in 1968, was basicly a large dolls leg with a rubber foot on the bottom. An unpadded  hard bucket, the hole you put your stump in, with a hole in the bottem of the bucket that went down the length of the inside and came out down near the ankle. The hole had a marble sized plastic ball that went back and forth so that it would create a sort of vacume seal. Blowing down and releasing the vacume when I took a step and my foot hit the ground. It would suck up and make a seal to hold it on. Development of prostetic gear has changed at an amazing pace in the last 45 years

How To Look Good On a Webcam

How To Look Good On a Webcam | Tech | Scoop.it
“Here’s a little something many of us dread – webcam meetings. It’s one thing to chat with friends and family using Skype or Google Hangouts, but it’s another thing completely to try to look good and maintain a professional image for a webcam meeting. The same sense of dread can apply to anyone who has to record video for a presentation or for a show they’re hosting. Even if you’re really confident, you might not look that great on the webcam, which completely ruins the whole take. ”So, how does one look good for a webcam? Well, it’s two-parts this, one part that and a shake of something undefinable, really. But, no matter how elusive the goal seems, there’s always a few good tips anyone can follow which will at least get us looking our best for the camera.

Journalists Implore FCC to Preserve Wireless Mic Spectrum | TVTechnology

Journalists Implore FCC to Preserve Wireless Mic Spectrum | TVTechnology | Tech | Scoop.it
A consortium of news organizations is imploring regulators to protect spectrum set aside for wireless microphones. “Although we compete fiercely with one another rin the field to be the best at what we do, we share one common reality: All electronic newsgatherers rely extensively on wireless microphones to communicate vital information to Americans,” they said in a letter addressed to Federal Communications Commission Acting Chairwoman Mignon Clyburn. “We urge you to preserve the two channels set aside for wireless microphone use in each market…” Designated wireless mic frequencies were created in the commission’s order opening up TV white spaces to unlicensed devices. The fate of both wireless mic spectrum and white spaces remains uncertain as the FCC hammers out its incentive auction rules and TV band repacking plan. The commission, for example, has proposed using 6 MHz guard bands between TV and wireless services for unlicensed devices. House Republicans, whose primary concern is raising as much money as possible from the auction, question whether 6 MHz guard bands are necessary. Wireless mics long operated as unlicensed devices in unoccupied TV frequencies with no issues. When those frequencies were opened up for other types of devices in 2010, wireless mic users lobbied and received interference protection in the form of designated channels.Click headline to read more--
