Self-adjusting Automated Smart Homes

MIT researchers have built a system that takes a step toward fully automated smart home by identifying occupants, even when they’re not carrying mobile devices. The system, called Duet, uses reflected wireless signals to localize individuals. But it also incorporates algorithms that ping nearby mobile devices to predict the individuals’ identities, based on who last … Continue reading “Self-adjusting Automated Smart Homes”

15 Latest inventions in solar energy technology

Solar Energy: Solar energy is the energy that is produced by the sun in the form of heat and light. It is one of the most renewable and readily available source of energy on planet Earth. The fact that it is available in plenty and free and does not belong to anybody makes it one … Continue reading “15 Latest inventions in solar energy technology”

Integrated Solar Flow Battery acts as both Solar Cell and Battery

Scientists in the United States and Saudi Arabia have harnessed the abilities of both a solar cell and a battery in one device a “solar flow battery” that soaks up sunlight and efficiently stores it as chemical energy for later on-demand use. While sunlight has increasingly gained appeal as a clean and abundant energy source, … Continue reading “Integrated Solar Flow Battery acts as both Solar Cell and Battery”

Part-organic invention can be used in bendable mobile phones

Engineers at the Australian National University (ANU) have invented a semiconductor with organic and inorganic materials that can convert electricity into light very efficiently, and it is thin and flexible enough to help make devices such as mobile phones bendable. The invention also opens the door to a new generation of high-performance electronic devices made with … Continue reading “Part-organic invention can be used in bendable mobile phones”

Top 10 Wearable Device Inventions

1. Wearable Artificial Kidney (WAK) may replace Dialysis for Patients with End-Stage Renal Disease: The technology may become an alternative to conventional hemodialysis for people with end-stage kidney disease. Present-day treatment generally requires three sessions a week on a stationary machine that restricts patients’ ability to walk around while it is attached and running. In … Continue reading “Top 10 Wearable Device Inventions”
