through the exposure of vibrating water patterns onto photosensitive paper, turczan explores the visual and sonic dimensions of the element. The post lachlan turczan transforms water patterns into liquid sculptures with cymatic watergrams appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
While we've seen quite a few filtration systems for making polluted water drinkable, many are quite complex, or utilize costly materials. By contrast, an experimental new setup simply requires users to inject dirty water through a layer of cellulose.Continue ReadingCategory: Good Thinking, LifestyleTags: University of Texas, Water, Filters, Purification, cellulose, Hydrogels
Electric powersport startup Searider looks to combine the sharp, nimble handling of a motorcycle with the instant acceleration of an all-electric jet ski. Weighing a fraction of even the lightest ICE-driven PWC, its Searacer is a sleek electro-machine capable of flirting with 50 mph (80 km/h) as it zips around the water for close to an hour per charge. A removable battery pack makes it easy to re
Data from ESA's Mars Express indicates that there may be subterranean ice deposits at the Martian equator that are up to 2.3 miles (3.7 km) thick. With enough water to fill the Red Sea, this could be a tremendous resource for future Mars colonies.Continue ReadingCategory: Space, ScienceTags: ESA, Mars Express, Mars
Water striders are fascinating to watch, as they scoot across the water while supported by surface tension. Scientists have now built a tiny robotic version of the insect, which utilizes a record-breaking actuator to get a move on.Continue ReadingCategory: Robotics, TechnologyTags: Washington State University, Insect, Biomimicry, locomotion, Shape Memory Alloys
the battery and motor in the e-jetcycle allow the electric paddle boat, equipped with carbon-fiber hydrofoils, to cruise for up to 3 hours without requiring pedaling effort. The post electric jetcycle adds carbon-fiber hydrofoils to boat so riders can pedal above the water appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
One of the coolest human-powered water toys we had the fortune to look at in 2022, the French-developed Jetcycle is a recumbent hydrofoil water bike that soars over top the water via human leg power. Jetcycle seems to have realized not every potential water-cyclist is up for the task of vigorously pedaling over the water's surface. It's now adding a second model that kicks in some electric assist
Using advanced imaging technology, researchers have ascertained the number of nanoplastics – bits of plastic smaller than a micrometer – in bottled water, finding that, on average, a liter contains 240,000 detectable fragments. The study provides invaluable information to address rising concerns about micro- and nanoplastic toxicity.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Plastics, Plastic waste,
pininfarina partners with AC future to design the electric transformer house, an RV and moving office with modular interior, now showcased at CES 2024. The post pininfarina’s new electric RV can expand its solar roof and produce water from moisture appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
To address the prospect of parched astronauts on Mars, NASA is considering a new proposal. The agency may develop a method of using synthetic biology to remove toxic perchlorates from Martian ice deposits, thus making water from those deposits suitable for drinking by humans.Continue ReadingCategory: Space, ScienceTags: NASA, Mars, Water is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
