Comments Off on Harvard Team to Convert Earth’s Unused Infrared Energy into Clean Electricity

Harvard Scientists are working on a new renewable energy system that can harvest the power of infrared energy from the Earth. Our own planet is constantly releasing hundreds of millions gigawatts of infrared radiation (which combines with our atmosphere to produce heat) into space and now physicists at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) envision two devices to capture it all. The research team proposed a pair of devices akin to a photovoltaic power system . But instead of capturing incoming visible light, the device would generate direct current electrical power by emitting infrared light.

Comments Off on Nylon Bike Made Using Satellite Technology is as Strong as Steel!

Spotted at the  London Design Festival earlier this week, this awesome bike really blew us away when we found out it was made entirely of nylon but is as strong as steel! Launched this year by a team of development engineers, the bike is made up of successive layers of fused nylon powder that are each just one-tenth of a millimeter thick. Designed by Andy Hawkins and Chris Turner at the Aerospace Innovation Centre in Bristol, UK, the bike is constructed from a manufacturing process known as additive layer manufacturing (ALM), which is also used in the manufacturing of satellites.
