NASA is Using Space-age Materials to Make Shelters that Could Help Save Firefighters

NASA is Using Space-age Materials to Make Shelters that Could Help Save Firefighters

00 NASA is collaborating with Forest Fire services and testing to see if their space age material could help save firefighters lives. Space is extremely hostile- most certainly not a place for human life- that is, if it weren’t for some clever engineering. After years of studying NASA has developed an array of technology suited to provide a hospitable environment inside of a deadly one. Spacecraft must be able to withstand immense pressure, extreme heat,…

This 20,000 W Lightbulb will Most Definitely Blind You

This 20,000 W Lightbulb will Most Definitely Blind You

00 Your house lights are probably somewhere in the range of 40 to 60 watts, but try and imagine what exactly a 20,000W light bulb would look like. If you are picturing pure whiteness, then you would be pretty close. YouTuber Photonic induction specializes in testing incredibly high-powered electric equipment, and his test of this 20KW light is nothing short of incredible. You wouldn’t use this light to light up a room, even a building,…

Smart Auto-Cancelling Turn Signal Could Save Motorcyclists’ Lives

00 [Image Source: Smart Turn System] Riding a motorcycle is a fun and affordable way to get around, but it is also quite dangerous. No matter how much protective gear you wear, there is always a risk that a high-speed accident could end your life. A lot of time and energy has been focused on refining motorcycle helmets and protective bodywear, but one company is hoping to help protect motorcyclers from a fatal error. Leaving…

Japanese Building Demolition Method Generates Electricity

Japanese Building Demolition Method Generates Electricity

00 The fast paced construction industry often means that some buildings are destroyed to make way for new structures. The most common demolition technique has always been to hit the building with a giant heavy thing or simply pack it with explosives to strategically bring it down. While this method works well, it can often malfunction and is quite the waste of materials. A new demolition technique being used in Tokyo brings down skyscrapers slowly,…

Flying Machine Uses Electric Jets to Hover

Flying Machine Uses Electric Jets to Hover

00 [Image Source: ETH Zurich] Traditionally, drones use a set of propellers directed upwards like a helicopter to provide lift. However, a team of students designed a new drone that uses ducted fans instead. A ducted fan is essentially a jet engine that uses electricity instead of jet fuel to power a turbine. Similar to the real thing, a ducted fan uses a compressor to send a stream of air towards a turbine which then…

Algae Canopy Generates 4 Hectares Equivalent of Oxygen

00 While you are out enjoying the town on a sunny day, finding shade can be a necessary task to keep cool. One England-based design studio has created a shade canopy that functions by pumping algae through clear plates, which alters the shade in the area and generates quite a bit of oxygen. As the sun becomes more present in an area, more algae will grow in the pumping liquid making the shade platform much…

Russian Robots will Soon Replace Human Soldiers

00 The forefront of Russian military technology looks a lot like the Terminator movies, with future soldiers being replaced by humanoid machines. Replacing humans with robots in warfare isn’t a new idea, but this is the first time the principle has actually been employed to design warfighting robots. Russian military officials believe that the human warfighter’s days are numbered, and robotics will soon take over the field, according to Russia Today. The above video was…

Scientists Develop Regenerative Fillings from Stem Cells

00 [Image Source: Wikimedia] New research in the field of stem cells has yielded regenerative dental fillings that could keep working after they are put in. This effectively would eliminate the need for root canals as the stem cells encourage dentin growth, which basically means the teeth start healing themselves. A breakthrough in allowing teeth to regenerate is one of the biggest breakthroughs in dental technology ever. Teeth damaged through dental disease or any other…

Company Unveils Plans to Grow War Drones from Chemicals

00 [Image Source: BAE Systems] If you thought military drones were already advanced, be prepared for fleets of drones to be chemically grown in giant vats. You read that right. BAE System, a UK defense company has announced that it plans to develop the technologies necessary to grow drones in tubes of chemicals using a proprietary chemical process. As the company claims, it will be like 3D printing but on the molecular level and increase…
