We haven't seen a floating offshore wind turbine like this before. Touchwind claims its innovative single-blade turbines will solve several problems to drive down cost and downtime, using a single, huge blade with no fancy active pitch controls.Continue ReadingCategory: Energy, ScienceTags: Renewable Energy, Offshore Wind, Floating, Wind turbine, Wind Power, Floating offshore wind
The Orbit Drive promises an ebike transmission, built into the motor housing, that lasts for thousands of miles without maintenance, boosts efficiency and range, allows regenerative braking, and comes out lighter than most ebike drive systems.Continue ReadingCategory: Bicycles, TransportTags: ebikes, Transmission, CVT, Efficiency
Promises, promises. The prospect of an electric car that can hook up, recharge and get back on the highway in 10 minutes or less has been previewed, teased and explored for years now, including by some pretty big names. But charging times out on the street still aren't anywhere near that fast. Yet a new promise of sub-10-minute charging still gets the heart racing just a little bit faster. And ev
Longtime readers may recall the Blooming Bamboo flood-resistant home by H&P Architects. A decade later, the Vietnamese firm has produced a somewhat similar prototype bamboo floating dwelling envisioned for river-based populations under threat from climate change, especially those living on and around Vietnam's Mekong Delta.Continue ReadingCategory: Architecture, LifestyleTags: Building and Constr
We've been covering the exploration and development of silicon battery anodes for well over a decade, but most of the breakthroughs have come at laboratory level. The past few years have seen the technology moving toward commercialization, and Silicon Valley battery materials company Sila announced this month that its Titan Silicon anode is now available. The new anode is already set to feature i
Cultivated meat is shaping up as an eco-friendly, cruelty-free alternative to traditional meat production. However, it’s missing one element crucial to flavor: fat. But a team of researchers has developed a way of cultivating fat on a large scale with a texture and makeup similar to animal fat.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Lab grown meat
While metal detectors are useful for detecting land mines, they can be fooled by buried metallic debris … plus some mines don't contain any metal. A new system is claimed to work better, by reading the unique molecular signature of the explosives used in mines.Continue ReadingCategory: Good Thinking, LifestyleTags: CSIRO, Land Mines, Magnetic, Detection, Explosives
A new study has revealed the case for more extensive gene mapping in disease research, with whole genome sequencing offering an unprecedented look at the makeup and behavior of Hodgkin lymphoma that could lead to better understanding of this and other cancers' development and treatment.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Cancer, Genetics, Genome, DNA
One factor limiting the output of today's power stations is the metals used in the blades, bearings and seals of their steam turbines, which tend to soften and elongate well before their melting point. Solve these problems, and you could conceivably raise temperatures on anything that converts heat to electricity using a steam turbine, with a resulting boost in efficiency and a reduction in waste
Epson has flown into Barcelona this week to launch three business-focused PowerLite L Series laser projectors at ISE 2023 , each rocking 4K Enhancement technology for "a visibly smoother and sharper display"Continue ReadingCategory: Home Entertainment, TechnologyTags: Epson, Projectors, 4k is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
