Green building: Consume less energy and absorb pollution.
Green building: Consume less energy and absorb pollution. Within the world of design and architecture, for several years it has sought to find the key that achieves buildings bring us truly "smart", where its function is not only consume less energy and recycle the existing, but also to add value the environment within the image that they bring to the landscape as well as an active tool in cleaning up the air we breathe. In mid-2015, it was presented at the World's Fair of Milan a building concept that thanks to the materials with which it is built, would be able to "eat the smog", the first building of its kind to be made of concrete designed to clear the air. A few days ago, he called Palazzo Italia has finally opened its doors. The magic of this building is its facade of 9,000 square meters covering the windows and the structure, which is made of a material that mixes cement and titanium dioxide, which upon contact with light, capturing the various oxide compounds nitrogen from the air and becomes a kind of salt that is isolated in the surface. When it rains, the salt dissolves and the facade is cleaned. But that's not all, the building is designed to consume up to 40% less energy than a conventional building of the same size, it does not produce emissions because their windows make use of photovoltaic glass, which is able to feed just over 11,000 LED bulbs. In addition to its structure it was constructed of photocatalytic cement that can be cleaned only with sunlight. #greenbuilding #LEED #sustainability #green #sustainable #eco #architecture #news #renewableenergy #in #construction

Oticon Opn: This instrument evolves IoT device with internet access and support IFTTT.
Oticon Opn: This instrument evolves IoT device with internet access and support IFTTT. For several decades the endaural or-ear hearing instrument is a device widely used by people with hearing weaknesses and even deafness, but it's funny how over the years the design and operation has remained almost intact, with slight improvements to a decrease in size and better sound amplification, but it is basically the same device. Now the London-based company Oticon has taken this design and adapted it new elements to make it all a connected device, a device that not only help with hearing people, but also alert to possible dangers through recipes based on IFTTT thanks to your Internet connection. OPN is a hearing aid equipped with technology TwinLink, developed by Oticon, which will have the same battery life without sacrificing size, but with WiFi connectivity, which will serve to set up alerts and notifications easily automated using recipes Steam's summer or connections direct IoT devices. By making this setting, the user can know when someone is ringing the bell, detect movements from a security camera, if the baby monitor is activated when a smoke alarm is ringing, when you get a notification to the smartphone, and even may answer calls right from the headset, as well as many other tasks depending on the needs. Another important in this hearing OPN improvement is that it has an electronic microphone capable of analyzing the sound up to 100 times per second according to its creators, which allow the person to identify the sources of sound, eliminating background noise so you can continue conversations between several people even in noisy places. Oticon has not mentioned so far price or availability, nor the full specifications of this hearing are known, something that could help us understand how all tasks that promises to work, so I just stayed with what he says the company expects to have more information. #OticonOpn #OpenSoundNavigator #audpeeps #oticon #hearingaids #Toronto #timeforabeer #SpeechGuardE #pluspower #NewHorizons #medicine #Louisvillehearingcenters #kundeogco #IoT

China An-225: not only wants to resurrect the biggest plane, but think of a whole fleet.
China An-225: not only wants to resurrect the biggest plane, but think of a whole fleet. The An-225 was the largest aircraft built according to the records (talking-not military and civilians not dealt with a project), as recalled in Popular Science where echoes the intention of resurrecting the project are made, or more well renew it and give it more importance. The title of course it beats talking pulse measures 84 meters in length (from nose to tail) and 88 meters from wing to wing. A beast of 640 tons and six engines. Besides the record size, the An-225 also carries the heaviest load, 250 tons (253,820 kilograms) and the heaviest single element loaded generator 189,980 kilograms. Although we saw her last flight a few months ago as we remembered the beginning, the first was in 1988 a space aircraft carrying 105 tons. the idea that the Chinese have is to create a transport network with these aircraft so that they can be moved from one side to another very heavy loads or large elements (such as generator we were saying, machinery, construction elements, etc.). A project whose first phase consists in having a second An-225 in 2019 and later cover a second in which takes China technology engines, namely engines Progress D-18T (or Lotarev D-18T), designed to large aircraft (also of Ukrainian origin). The new An-225 is already something other than above, since the cargo door is on the back (and we saw that in the An-225 nose opened to introduce the charge, being something quite striking). At present construction it is around the 60-70%, so it is plausible goal three years (nearly two) view, with the intention that the first flights were already made in 2020. Here the military use is also contemplated, although not per se a military plane. AICC for the An-225 is a very suitable option for transporting military equipment, as can load helicopters, weapons and even tanks. He is under construction at the moment the second plane to transport large, long-term we will see if manage to create this fleet for large intercontinental transport. #ChinaAn225 #China #An225 #an225 #Antonov #kul #Antonov225 #avgeek #Perth #hyperlapse #Mriya #plane #MYairportsaircraft #KLIA #Abantech

IBM artificial brain: neurons create the first artificial phase change.
IBM artificial brain: neurons create the first artificial phase change. IBM has managed to implement a system of 500 artificial neurons with phase change technology they want to simulate the performance of organic brains. In a way that never before had gotten. For years, scientists have tried to imitate the versatile computing capabilities of neurons. Today, it seems that is the only way to take a step beyond artificial intelligence projects that are underway and that promise to change the world. They have been taking small steps. IBM recently managed to create memory chips to a phase change similar to the current RAM price. The phase shift is a technology that we've been talking a long time that stores data in non-volatile, ie not disappear when you turn off the device that reside in the structure and in its relational pattern. The information resides in different firing patterns of neurons and new connections are developed. Therefore, the challenge is to combine very complex nanostructures with an acceptable energy consumption, common materials and stochastic behavior. IBM new neurons try to imitate not only the operation of natural cells, but its structure. Like them, have dendrites entrance, membrane, soma and axon output. To replace the membrane, artificial neurons use a GST cells, so named because they are made of antimony, germanium and tellurium. This material turns out to be the main active component of rewritable optical disks and is what allows the phase change. #artificialbrain #NeuralNetworks #ArtificialIntelligence #tech #DataScience #nanotechnology #Healthcare #science #technology #artificial #neurons #AbanTech #research #brain #neuroscience #theory #TACTT #physics #new #culture #conspiracy

Toshiba creates a battery: for cars that offers 320km of autonomy in 6 minutes of charge
Toshiba creates a battery: for cars that offers 320km of autonomy in 6 minutes of charge. One of the biggest problems of electric cars could be history thanks to a new Toshiba battery. The Japanese company has just presented a battery for electric cars that in only 6 minutes of loading offers 320 kilometers of use. The new generation of Toshiba car batteries, based on Ion-Lithium, is focused on changing one of the most well-known drawbacks of electric cars, charging times. Although companies like Tesla have managed to improve the speed of charge of their batteries, it still takes about an hour to have most of the battery charged. Depending on the type of electric car or even the type of battery that is selected, these vehicles could take several hours to charge. This is not an option for most people who come from a combustion car. Suzuki Solio Hybrid, one of the few electric cars that uses Toshiba batteries. Photo: Suzuki Motors. The new Toshiba battery offers high energy density and reduced charge time due to the use of titanium oxide doped with niobium. This element is also used in solar panels or even in superconducting images, such as those used in particle accelerators. After 5,000 charge / discharge cycles it maintains 90% of its original capacity. The battery is not yet in production, has been tested a prototype with a capacity of 50Ah, hence has extrapolated the results to what may be the future of this technology charging. Perhaps one of the most important details for the future of this battery is that after 5,000 charge / discharge cycles, it maintains 90% of its original capacity. This will result in an electric car would not have to change battery after a few years of use, even end up with rental programs. Toshiba hopes to start mass-producing this battery in 2019. For now only the electric cars of Suzuki and Mitsubishi use their batteries, also some brands of buses. Toshiba faces companies like Panasonic, associated with Tesla, which is nowadays one of the most important vehicle companies in the world.

Micra pacemaker: the smallest pacemaker in the world has been approved for mass sale.
Micra pacemaker: the smallest pacemaker in the world has been approved for mass sale. In late 2013, the company Medtronic showed a device that could revolutionize the lives of patients with heart rhythm disorders. The device was known as Micra and was listed as "the world's smallest pacemaker," which among its benefits, besides being extremely small, did not require surgery for implantation. Now just over two years after announcing Micra has been approved by the FDA in the United States, so its sales will begin in the coming weeks for all patients requiring a pacemaker, but certainly the most important, is which it will be covered by most health insurance plans in the country. Micra is an amazing solution using transcatheter technology, so no surgery, open for implantation heart, this is done by injecting a tube 105cm in the vein of the patient's groin and installing the device will stay in the right ventricle. This will prevent the use of cables and possible infections in the surrounding tissue, because Micra has only 24 millimeters long and remains hooked by heart small teeth, emitting at all times electrical impulses to keep the heart beating, besides being able to adjust these depending on patient activity impulses. Its battery offers a range of up to 10 years and the first tests made to a group of 719 patients, 98% underwent right heart rate and only 7% had major complications after a few months, and it is thanks to these good results , which it received FDA approval. Because Micra is implanted near the lower chamber of the heart, it can not be used in patients who need stimulation in both the lower chamber and the upper, plus they can not be used in people who already have implanted another device, or well, have problems of obesity. #chipEpileptic #epileptic #marijuana #epilepsy #cannabis #cbd #seizures #MME #Missing #HelpDaisy #Clophill #Bedfordshire

Bike Washing Machine: stationary bike washing clothes.
Bike Washing Machine: stationary bike washing clothes. Under a project of industrial design and engineering, a group of students from the University Dalian Nationalities in China have created an interesting device that links the sometimes tedious task of washing clothes and doing exercise using a stationary bike. The project is called BWM Bike Washing Machine, and combines two seemingly unrelated activities in a single device. This bike instead of front wheel have a small drum washing machine, which has a capacity of up to five kilograms of clothing complete with drainage system, the only detail is that we have to carry clothes, water and detergent addition softener. The idea is EXTREMELY simple, as the drum rotates while pedaling the bike, but also has an additional feature, since pedaling, the movement will generate energy, which can be used to charge devices, feeding a screen that shows our progress in bike, or store it for later. This is just a student project and so far there are no plans to create a commercial product, but its creators are convinced that some companies may be interested in developing it as well as improve and integrate new elements and features. #BikeWashingMachine #BWM #車椅子 #派遣 #武蔵小杉 #横浜 #川崎 #ベンツ #データセンター #WFG #SQL #IPv6

Prefab Flex House: presents a more elegant vision of sustainable compact living
The so-called “right-sized” prefab design comes in at a comfortable 760 square feet, with smart home trimmings from head to toe. Flex House, presented by Green Builder Media, is the second and newest concept from California-based modular housing company Shelter Dynamics. From the outset, the curved roofline suggests that this efficiency-focused design doesn’t skimp on the architectural details that might charm buyers of traditional houses. Inside, pale floors and walls are garnished by arched doorways, recessed lighting, plus built-in seating and storage. Upon entry, you’ll find two living areas: a main living room to the left, and a nook to the right, which leads to a bonus “niche” space before you get to the kitchen. In the kitchen, two windows bring in light, while 24’’ Bosch appliances make the most of the space. All the cabinets in the model home are from Ikea. Of course, the Flex House wouldn’t be the Flex House without its full suite of smart home integrations and sustainability-minded fixtures. These include: a Nexus eWater greywater recycling system, Rachio WaterSense smart irrigation controller that optimizes water use based on weather data, Sylvania smart lighting, Lutron smart shades, Wemo smart plugs, Sensi smart thermostat, and Kwikset smart lock. And all of this is integrated with the smart assistant Amazon Alexa, which can be controlled by voice or app.

Taiwan Tao Zhu Yin Yuan: Building that reduces excess carbon dioxide by feeding on it.
Taiwan Tao Zhu Yin Yuan: Building that reduces excess carbon dioxide by feeding on it.  The city where it is rising is Taipei, in the XinYin district, and the tower is called Tao Zhu Yin Yuan. The building, in fact, will end up being rather low, with about 92 meters of height, especially considering that shares city with one of the highest of the world, the tower Taipei 101 of about 508 meters of height. But what makes the building special is its design and structure, given that in addition to presenting a helical design between the walls and floors of its 40 apartments will house some 23,000 trees and shrubs. These plants will be the ones that do the cleaning function that is planned, that is, the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. In Business Insider talk with Callebut and detail that the double-helix design is inspired by a DNA strand is a double helix and it is estimated that the plants will absorb 130 tons of carbon dioxide a year, which according to the architect is equivalent to 27 Cars. As for the design and arrangement of elements, the building will have glazed floors and there will also be plants inside the tower, as well as swimming pool and gymnasium and multi-level underground parking. In addition, as explained in CTBUH will integrate a rainwater recycling system, energy-efficient lifts, solar panels and a system that according to the climate can save energy. This initiative is novel, but not the only one in terms of buildings that eat pollution. A few months ago we talked about a building that did not resort to plants to eat the smog, but to the materials themselves. Thus, the facade of 9,000 meters of the Palazzo Italia is made of a mixture of cement and titanium dioxide that on contact with the light captures the different nitrogen oxides in the air resulting in a type of salt that is isolated on the surface and when it rains it dissolves. Regarding the tower Tao Zhu Yin Yuan, the date of completion of the moment remains unchanged and the plan is to see this tower completed in September of this year. We do not know if it will be possible to reduce the concentration of carbon dioxide up to that point, but the initiative is at least an extra dose of oxygen and without requiring the latest technologies or depending on their efficiency. #Taiwan #TaoZhuYInYuan #Pollution #HelicalDesign #AbanTech #architecture #ecology #nature #TaiwanTaoZhuYinYuan #Taipei #design #structure #technolog #GlazedFloors #SwimmingPool #gym #UndergroundParking #SolarPanels #EnergySavingSystem #building #OxidesNitrogen

Graphene: amazing material and with a laser can now create objects in 3D
Graphene amazing material and with a laser can now create objects in 3D. This is a great year for graphene researchers, who continue to identify amazing new applications for this material. And now, a new laser technique could help unlock the full potential for real-world application, using it to create 3D objects. Graphene is an impressively versatile material, with applications ranging from cancer detection to conducting electricity and creating smart sensors. However, for these applications to be practical in the real world, it is necessary for scientists to find a way to convert graphene to a three-dimensional shape. Researchers from Finland and Taiwan have discovered a way to "forge" graphene into three-dimensional objects, using a focused laser beam. As proof of concept, they showed how lasers could create a 3D pyramid of graphene. To achieve this result, a laser focuses on a point on a 2D graphene network, which radiates that part of the structure and causes it to swell. The 3D pyramid that the team created is only 60 nm high (small enough to fit into a single strand of human hair), but is still 200 times higher than a graphene sheet. "This changes the electronic and optical properties of graphene, opening up a new way of adapting them with a very simple method," Professor Mika Pettersson, who led the research team at the Nanoscience Center at Jyvaskyla University, told Digital Trends. "This changes how graphene devices can be designed and manufactured. As an important aspect, the properties can be adapted locally, but still maintain the integrity of the carbon network. Ultimately, the vision is to manufacture functional devices with the method of laser writing.

3D solar towers: would be the solution to the low efficiency solar panels.
3D solar towers: would be the solution to the low efficiency solar panels. Developments around the use of renewable energy continues, the reduction in the cost of photovoltaic cells, allowing more users to adopt the use of solar panels for home and thus reduce the electricity bill. Solar panels, despite being one of the most viable for the average user options are not the most efficient, as its flat design limits its efficiency at times of peak intensity of sunlight, but this could change in the future thanks to a new project at MIT that eliminates panels and 3D transforms towers. MIT researchers have developed the first 3D solar towers with a housing made of a 3D printer, which have adapted small solar panels on two of its faces structure, this with the idea of ​​adapting to the path of the sun and thus have greater efficiency, its creators state that would be an increase of up to 20 times more solar energy, since practically be receiving sunlight throughout the day. An attractive point within these towers, is that it is printed 3D structures at the nanoscale that could be behind the panels, so there would be an obstruction and receiving sunlight is better spent. On the other hand, to solve the orientation of the towers that are always pointing in the right direction, the base would have a motor connected to a system of algorithms, which will make the tower rotate depending on the latitude and season of the year where it has been installed... #3DsolarTowers #SolarTowers #WaveEnergy2015 #renewableenergy

Alaska volcano Erupts: The flights may be disrupted, raising the aviation alert level to red.
Alaska volcano Erupts: The flights may be disrupted, raising the aviation alert level to red. A volcano in Alaska that has been active for the past six months has erupted again, raising the aviation alert level to red. According to Bloomberg, the Alaska Volcano Observatory detected an eruption of the Bogoslof Volcano in the Aleutian Islands at approximately 2:16 p.m. on Sunday. The eruption lasted for 55 minutes and sent an ash plume at least 35,000 feet into the air. In response to the eruption, the Aviation Color Code has been raised to red, the highest possible level. Airborne volcanic ash can interfere with and even destroy jet engines above 20,000 feet. Flights between North America and Asia are likely to be grounded, potentially for several days. Bogoslof Volcano is a submarine stratovolcano, a conical volcano built up over many layers. Its absolute summit forms Bogoslof Island, located on the southern edge of the Bering Sea, 35 miles northwest of Unalaska Island, 850 miles southwest of Anchorage. Over the last six months, according to U.S. News & World Report, the island has more than tripled in size as a result of frequent eruptions. The last eruption occurred on May 17, sending ash clouds 34,000 feet high; Sunday’s eruption marks the most significant to date. Starting in December, the volcano erupted almost daily. As of March 11, 2017, Bogoslof Island had grown to 242 acres in size and is expected to continue to grow. The first known emergence of Bogoslof above sea level was in 1796, during an underwater eruption; another island about 2,000 feet northwest of Bogoslof, called Castle Rock, represents another cone of the same volcano which erupted later that year. Before December, 2016, Bogoslof’s last known eruption was in 1992, and Bogoslof’s current period of activity has come as a surprise to scientists. Scientists still have a lot to learn about both the location and activity of underwater volcanoes; many modern techniques for identifying submarine volcano eruption rely entirely on sound. According to the AVO, the ash cloud may reach as high as 45,000 feet, and while seismic and infrared detectors on neighboring islands, as well as satellite imagery, show all-quiet at Bogoslof, the volcano is “unpredictable” and AVO has issued a warning that “Bogoslof volcano remains at a heightened state of unrest and in an unpredictable condition. Additional explosions producing high-altitude volcanic clouds could occur at any time.” They also warned that low-level explosions occurring below their detection threshold may be ongoing and that approaching the island is unwise. The National Weather Service Alaska Aviation Weather Unit also issued an alert that the ash cloud may climb as high as 50,000 feet. #nature #AlaskaVolcano #Flights #VolcanoBogoslof #AbanTech #technology #tech #SubmarineStratovolcano #Bogoslof #Scientists #SeismicDetectors #SatelliteImages #MeteorologicService #alaska #AshCloud #eruption #volcano #publishe

OPod Tube House: concrete micro house is a pipe dream
Is a micro house made from concrete water piping that measures just 2.5 m (8.2 ft) in diameter. Its snug interior features an apartment-style layout suitable for one or two people. Resembling Mexico's Tubohotel, which we covered back in 2011, the OPod was designed with a view to mitigating Hong Kong's housing shortages, which have given rise to the area's infamous "coffin cubicles." Access is gained by a glazed door and inside it comprises a total floorspace of just 100 sq ft (9.29 sq m). A second section of concrete pipe is connected at the rear to provide a kitchenette and small bathroom with shower and toilet. James Law Cybertecture envisions the OPod being installed in urban areas unsuitable for standard construction, such as narrow alleyways between buildings, for example. Multiple units could be stacked atop each other, with simple metal stairways providing access. The firm has made some mockups showing how such a development may take shape. The South China Morning Post reports that each OPod will cost around US$15,000 (not including the cost of land, presumably) and be used to house people temporarily while they await larger longterm accommodation.

The self-elevating, off-grid, luxury floating home
Floating houses are popular ways of living in some parts of the world, reads the Arkup press release, "in particular the Netherlands, US West Coast cities and South-East Asia." I can't say I've visited the first two examples, but I've spent some time in the latter, and it seems a little tasteless to compare the humble bamboo houseboats of Cambodia to the floating luxury apartments these guys are selling. Still, the concept seems neat for those who can pay to play. A self-contained, electric, double decker houseboat that can put down hydraulic legs to elevate itself out of the swells in water up to 20 feet deep. A liveable yacht that won't make anyone seasick, and that harvests its own rainwater from a roof that doubles as a 30-kilowatt solar array, feeding up to 1,000 kilowatt-hours worth of lithium batteries onboard. It's got a built-in communications suite, with 4G, Satellite TV, Wi-Fi and VHF radio ready to rock, and its twin 136-horsepower electric azimuth thrusters can rotate 360 degrees to manoeuvre about the place or chug along at a sedate 7 knot top speed. The deck retracts when you're on the move, there's a boat lift to get your tender out of the water, and the sun deck can be fully immersed in water to become a protected sea-pool. Arkup sees it as a way to have a future-proof luxury getaway you can park at a marina or anchor in a river or lake to give yourself a beautiful view no matter how high sea levels might rise. Oh, and it's ready to withstand the 155 mph winds of a category 4 hurricane, if recent events have got you thinking life on the coast might be a bit rough. The 4,350 square foot interior design is sleek, modern and high end, and can be tailored to become a home, a vacation home, an event/party venue, a restaurant, a gym, a day spa or whatever else you can build a business case for. That might be where this kind of design shines, as a kind of aquatic, self contained pop-up business.

Microsoft just put a data center under water.
Microsoft just put a data center under water. Microsoft just finished a three-month experiment operating an underwater data center. A server rack with the power of about 300 PCs was placed into a water-tight steel cylinder and lowered into the ocean off the coast of central California. The wacky experiment was launched because current data centers are woefully inefficient. They're built where energy and land are cheap (not close to where people actually live). And they waste so much energy cooling their massive computers. The ocean can solve those problems. Ocean currents can produce enough energy to power the sub-sea data centers. The cold ocean floor sufficiently cools the computing components inside the pod. And since most people live near the ocean, placing data centers under water could potentially increase the speed at which customers could access the information stored in Microsoft's cloud. The experiment was so successful that Microsoft operated the underwater data center for 75 days longer than it had planned to. It even began running actual customers' workloads on it, according to Peter Lee, corporate vice president of Microsoft Research NExT. Microsoft has since fished the experimental data center out of the water for analysis. The next step is to get a larger pod, with about four times the computing power, under the ocean for testing. Unlike the first experiment, the next pod will also be equipped with turbines, which will convert the ocean's currents into electricity. It's not clear when, if ever, underwater data centers will become a viable product. But Microsoft is determined to try by taking small, incremental steps forward. "Our first experiment was like dipping our pinkie toe in the water, and now we're going for the big toe," Lee said... #Microsoft #tech #Windows #Windows10 #WindowsPhone #Xbox #Apps #Technology #XboxOne #Apple #WindowsOS

Funny how some technological advances come to bring us a bit of comfort and convenience to activities we do every day, this with the intention of having more free time to use it in other activities, but in turn, these same advances can serve for other circumstances. Such is the case of Ecocapsule, which is practically a house capable of withstanding any weather condition as it has the ability to generate their own energy and in turn, give us everything you need to survive if we are in a secluded place or just go out hiking. The study design and Slovak Nice Architects architecture are those behind the Ecocapsule, which has attracted the attention of several people and governments because of the variety of uses that can be given, either from a simple tent, to shelter for victims in tragedies such as earthquakes or floods. The Ecocapsule has everything you need to live and survive indefinitely, for example, has its own folding bed, windows, bathroom with shower including two small wineries (internal and external) for storing food, small kitchen, table and two chairs to work or sit down to eat. What makes independent is your energy collection system with its 2.6 square meters of solar cells on the entire roof of the capsule, and a folding pole with wind turbine 750W, all this energy is stored in a battery 9744Wh integrated capacity. But also has a system for collecting rainwater that causes leaking and stored in a tank under the capsule so it can be used for drinking, while for the use of the bathroom, shower and kitchen use is a recycling system that uses the same amount of water. The measurements are Ecocapsule 445 x 225 x 260 cm and weighing 1500 kg. Its creators are to present the first functional prototype on 28 May during the Festival of the Pioneers in Vienna, and have said they are ready to put on sale by the end of the year, even expect 2016 to make these capsules under design or special requirements. Unfortunately it is not yet disclosed the price that will have every Ecocapsule, but their manufacturers mentioned that it will be possible to send it to anywhere in the world, of course, paying the shipping and the necessary conditions for the trip capsule without problems and arrive at your destination without mishaps. #Ecocapsule #design #architecture #renewableenergy #solar #wind #sustainable #SolarPower #vienna2016 #stupidDOPE #solarenergy #Bits

Graphene patches: to treat diabetes, goodbye to needles.
Graphene patches: to treat diabetes, goodbye to needles. Approximately 9% of adults worldwide have diabetes. That is, 9% of the world population has to be punctured finger several times a day to measure their glucose levels. Doing so is painful, tired and often logistically difficult; It does not have major health consequences in the long term (more than one and a half million diabetics die each year from such complications). This has meant that, for years, researchers have been looking for better techniques for controlling glucose. A South Korean group led by Kim Dae-Hyeong, just published in Nature Nanotechnology have created a patch of graphene that can not only monitor the blood sugar level, but administering treatment as necessary. Finally, graphene gives us good news. Although we all know because graphene is the 'material of the future' (strong and flexible as none), the truth is that certain properties have made use features to detect changes in glucose levels difficult. Therefore, the device of Korean researchers also uses a gold mesh surrounding the star material. Once set, the device captures the sweat on the skin and sensors in real time studying changes in the pH and temperature of sweat; things that indicate a high level of sugar. These readings are transmitted wirelessly to the mobile device to allow permanent control. By detecting high levels of sugar, the patch exposes a microneedles that release metformin (a drug used antidiabetic) in the skin. According to initial tests, the enforcement mechanism is so subtle that users are not even to notice. Unquestionably, these devices radically change our way of treating diabetes. We must not forget that chronic diseases are baited with those who have less resources and opportunities (80% of deaths are concentrated in poor countries and lower classes). Simplifying the process control and treatment of these diseases perhaps we can prevent diabetes by 2030 is the seventh leading cause of death in the world, such as WHO predicts. #GraphenePatches #diabetes #Medicine #Health #glucose #South #Nanotechnology #sugarLevel #graphene #PHsweat #WHO #OMS,#temperatureSweat #mobileDevice #Korean #transmitted #wirelessly

Giant marine reptile: lived in Antarctic 150 million years ago
Scientists in Argentina have found the remains of a giant carnivorous marine reptile, or plesiosaur, that lived 150 million years ago in Antarctica. The four-finned reptile, which measured up to 12m long, dates from the late Jurassic period and is the most ancient creature ever discovered on the continent. Soledad Cavalli, a paleontologist at Argentina's National Scientific and Technical Research Council, said: "At this site, you can find a great diversity of fish, ammonites, some bivalves, but we did not expect to find such an ancient plesiosaur." The "surprising" discovery has never been documented, according to a statement from the National University of La Matanza, near Buenos Aires. "The discovery is pretty extraordinary, because the rock types at the site weren't thought conducive to the preservation of bones, like the vertebrae of this marine reptile," Cavalli said. The discovery site was a two-hour helicopter journey from Argentina's Marambio Base on the tip of Antarctica, with the researchers set to continue their work in January, during the southern hemisphere's summer. Marcelo Reguero of the Argentine Antarctic Institute (IAA) added that Antarctica was at the time part of the Gondwana continent, which also included Australia, New Zealand, India, Madagascar, Africa and South America, before continental drift pushed them apart.

Air Clip capsules: play with different capsules for passengers and goods.
Air Clip capsules: play with different capsules for passengers and goods. Clip Air wants to take the concept to the world of transport of people and goods. We find something like modular aircraft. In principle four different models with the same philosophy project: there is a main module that is the cockpit with their wings, landing gear and engines. The rumen is empty for placing the other part of the equation which cabins are loaded with different designs. Not long ago we present the Airbus people had patented a similar idea. "Clip Air" is a concept of the "Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne". The Swiss believe that the same people trip reports regardless of medium, I mean, the modules or cabins could well be interchangeable between trains, boats and planes. Imagine change from "vehicle" along a journey with stops, without actually changing cabin or container. From the point of view of the goods, which normally make a more complex route in different scales and transport, it can make more sense. From the point of view of passenger may also be changes in the way we travel, for example, the entrance to the capsule would not have to be on track, they could put in a more comfortable place and then take it to the plane. competition between different operators also includes flight, which would each have a capsule of a plane (150 each). We give a rather simple view of the matter, without many technical details, but I think we can get an idea with recreations. As can be seen in them, it is possible that more than one of those cabins up to three hang onto the same plane. The most striking design concepts part is definitely lives up to its undercarriage, a structure is formed with two feet on each side of the space reserved for the capsules. Although the wheels themselves are placed in them shrink, the structure is fixed. About its feasibility, as there are all kinds of opinions: Addison Schonland specialized consultants as brilliant consider it from the point of view of engineering, but very difficult to implement. It is very difficult to compete with established and profitable technologies, introducing such a radical change. #AirClipCapsules #AirClip #capsulesPassengers #capsules #Passengers #goods #Technology

Bicycle Bottle System: This amazing bottle becomes moist air into drinking water.
Bicycle Bottle System: This amazing bottle becomes moist air into drinking water. Retezár Kristof is a designer who has created a unique bottle: exploiting the principle of condensation of moisture from the air to produce drinking water in any environment. Of course the amount of water produced depends on factors such as humidity or temperature water. The device is powered by solar energy and comprises a capacitor which functions as a refrigerator-connected to a series of hydrophobic surfaces water repellent. This bottle can produce half a liter of water in an hour under ideal conditions. According Retezár if ila temperature is between 30 and 40 degrees Celsius and the humidity is between 80 and 90 percent will be in the best position to generate drinking water, but in reality there is always a certain percentage of moisture in the atmosphere as well the bottle might work even in the desert. The prototype includes a filter to prevent dust or insects in the water, but so far no pollutants are filtered. In this sense Retezár is already posing a version with a filter that will avoid that problem ... #bicycle #bike #cycling #sougofollow #photography #mtb #photo #travel #cycle #BicycleBottleSystem #BicycleBottle #System

Scientists discover the largest underwater volcanic eruption that went unnoticed in last 100 years
Most of us are aware of the volcanic eruptions taking on land. Scientists constantly monitor the volcanic activities of these easy to observe volcanoes. But they don’t have much data about the underwater volcanoes. That is why they missed a big underwater volcano that erupted within 100 years. Scientists say that it is difficult to monitor volcanic activities occurring at the bottom of the sea because it is quite challenging to reach the spot of the activity, as well as the visibility of such volcanoes, is quite low. But as per the latest reports, researchers have got hold of the largest underwater volcanic eruption called as Havre Volcano. In 2012, when the scientists got reports of massive debris or raft floating near New Zealand, they speculated that something strange might have happened. With the passage of time, the raft grew larger and reached almost 241 square kilometers. This made scientists suspect that something massive is happening underwater. A group of researchers from New Zealand, Australia and the U.S. led by Rebecca Carey at the University of Tasmania in Australia sent Sentry, an autonomous vehicle, to map the raft area. Then they sent a remotely operated vehicle Jason to identify and collect the volcanic material. At first, the researchers thought the site to be a violent one, but they were completely surprised when they analyzed the data collected by those vehicles. The found out that the volcanic eruption was happening pretty calmly and lava flows were moving slowly. The molten rock released from the eruption resulted in the formation of a huge cone of cooled rock around the site of the eruption. The less explosive eruption would have been possible due high pressures at the bottom of the ocean. So, it can be said that the largest underwater volcano was a less violent one. The researchers felt that poor understanding and lack of information about the oceanic volcanoes resulted made this massive underwater volcanic eruption get unnoticed in 100 years. Study author Adam Soule from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute said that this issue often happens with work in deep oceans. “We had preconceived notions of what we’d find, but not until we got out there did we get a sense of what had happened, he said.” As per the study, there are plenty of data about the oceanic volcanoes that are still unknown, and these oceanic volcanoes make up 70 percent of the magma that Earth spits out.

Europe Artificial islands: this is how you want to make the most of the wind for energy.
Europe Artificial islands: this is how you want to make the most of the wind for energy. The creation of artificial islands is not very common but is not new, and we have seen different uses as the basis of gigantic bridges. This time the objective is to achieve a site dedicated to renewable energies, with the construction of artificial energy islands in northern Europe. Although Energinet communicates now, the project has already been made public by TenneT in June 2016. The idea is to connect Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and Belgium with more than 10,000 turbines, and although in principle it is about an island Power Link does not rule out that there is more in the future, in fact specifies that the idea is that there are more participants in the project and that extends beyond the North Sea. Thus, one of the keys to the project is the location, the so-called Dogger Bank, which obviously has not been chosen at random. In addition to being geographically the most favorable point for the countries involved at the moment (and the proximity makes possible the wiring network, etc.), the wind conditions of this place are optimal according to the companies, besides there is not much Depth (greater depth, higher cost of construction). The goal is to reach 70,000-100,000 megawatts and the project will be signed on 23rd June in Brussels by these three companies with a long-term goal (in 2050): to meet the Paris Summit (COP21) requirements in the Which was agreed: Keep the average global temperature rise well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. Limit the increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius (which is expected to greatly reduce the risks and impact of climate change). That the global emissions reach their maximum level as soon as possible. With this idea, beyond the business objectives, it is tried to take advantage of the wind with a view to that in the future there are more similar projects. Another idea that adds to the objectives of each country is to achieve both wind and solar energy and that we have mentioned for some time, such as the Netherlands and 100% of its trains running on wind energy , Denmark breaking records in this energy. #EuropeArtificialIslands #Abantech #Europe #USA #UK #news #France #EU #world #Russia #Turkey #Islam #ArtificialIslands #RenewableEnergies #planet #WW3 #PhD #oil #fellowship #Africa #windenergy #wef #trade #SolarImpulse

Nasa Sky View: apps to explore the constellations and planets with your Android.
Nasa Sky View: apps to explore the constellations and planets with your Android. Apps for Android so you can explore the sky and know all the constellations and planets around us. Sky View: is one of the most popular apps to explore the sky, and also one of the most complete. It works by augmented reality to only have to point your phone at the sky and to learn more about the constellations or planets nearby. If you do not want to use the camera because you're not outdoors, you can also explore space moving mobile. It also has a mode of time machine to see what it was like heaven or how it will be on a specific date and has night mode to make it more comfortable for the eyes. Star Walk 2: is another option available on Google Play and as SkyView also allows you to locate constellations pointing the phone in the direction you want, but if you do not want to get dizzy can also move simply sliding the finger and zoom with habitual gesture. The advantage of Star Walk is offering a very polished interface and graphics three-dimensional Star Map lets you navigate through space through the screen of your mobile phone, it is much richer in features, although there are payment options like the map comets and even warns when meteor showers like the Perseides. NASA App: If you like everything about astronomy, the official NASA app can not miss on your smartphone. The interface needs a facelift, but the content does not disappoint and is also constantly updated, so every day you will see new images and news to read. Section image is one of the most consulted, especially the picture of the day from NASA, which also can be set as wallpaper. Night Sky: is another application that lets you know the name of all the stars and constellations by just moving your phone, but also Night Sky tells you when is the right time to look at the stars, not mobile, but with your own eyes . Night Sky Tools: If you're looking for is a more detailed application, Night Sky Tools is a very interesting option. Besides allowing us navigate the sky and the names of the stars, this app also offers plenty of technical data for experts. Not the best interface and its management could be more intuitive, but it compensates Tools Night Sky with a complete set of tools that provides information about the closest as in this case Perseids rain events. Meteor Shower Calendar: is an app for lovers of meteor showers. we've already said when the Perseids will reach its peak intensity but with this application you can know details of other phenomena. Meteor Shower Calendar: Meteors classified as intensity and displays them in a kind of timeline so you know which you can see. You can also be set notifications to alert you when there are meteor showers and can see the weather forecast. #apps #iphone #android #iOS #technology #Mobile #tech #SPACE #AbanTech #NASA #GooglePlay #applications #app #StarMap #NightSky

New York metro WiFi: as it prepares for its new metro WiFi, USB ports and digital displays.
New York metro WiFi: as it prepares for its new metro WiFi, USB ports and digital displays. Discretely New York is becoming a state with smart cities when nobody expected it, because the last couple of years have launched aggressive initiatives to modernize the metropolis, this through the implementation of "smart" buildings, free public WiFi modules with gigabit speed, future dumpsters with WiFi as well as the adoption of e-books for schools statewide. Following this trend, the government of New York is announcing an exciting new plan to modernize the city subway, covering both stations and carriages, which means a deserved upgrade to one of the transport systems most commonly used in the world, which in turn, is also one of the most neglected. Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York, has announced that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) will receive a budget of 27,000 million dollars, which will serve to start up a plan of five years for the renewal of the system city ​​subway. This renovation consists of 1,025 new cars, digital displays with mobile connections that will inform details of the routes in real time, better safety features, illuminated by LEDs and deploying WiFi and USB connection for this both new cars and for seasons. These new wagons equating real-time locating system, which will report its location via a mobile application to any person, or will be available through the screens of the seasons; you are also screens will be placed inside the car, which will be used to implement a new system of mobile advertising, plus it will be informative. The cars will also feature a new design with wider doors to allow people in and out in less time, plus they have a "free" design from start to finish so that users can be distributed throughout the car. In the coming days will start with the renovation of three seasons in Manhattan, where the plan is to modernize 31 stations in the metropolitan area before the end of the year, from 2017 start with upgrading the remaining 170 stations will have a new standard unified design, where the architectural legacy of each is respected. This project joins the city initiative to update and make safer transportation systems, which together with the recent launch of the new generation of buses with WiFi in Queens, the plan is that by 2020 the entire system transportation has a new face. #NewYorkMetroWiFi #NewYork #MetroWiFi #SuperfastWireless #CityCentreWiFi #WiFi #metro #LEDlights #SmartCity #PublicTransportation #Vehicles

A submarine and floating tunnel: The surprising proposal to reduce travel times.
A submarine and floating tunnel: The surprising proposal to reduce travel times. The National Roads Authority in Norway is presenting an ambitious project would be the first in the world, which would consist of installing two underwater tunnels that would be connected to pontoons located along the surface, these pontoons remain stable tunnels and not interfere with the passage of vessels also be considered that reinforce each tunnel at the bottom of the fjord to give greater stability. The tunnels would be submerged to about 30.5 meters from the surface and each would be the wide enough to accommodate two lanes, it is proposed to have two tunnels, one for traffic in each direction, and its leaders mentioned to drive through them would very similar experience to travel underwater tunnels where Norway has 35 of them. In theory, these tunnels will reduce the journey of 22 hours on the road in Sognefjord within 11 hours. To carry out this project has a budget of 25,000 million dollars and is estimated to have them ready for the year 2035, but not before making relevant analyzes showing the possible risks of having a structure of this type to streams, and to remember that it would be the first tunnel of this kind, however the money is designed to reduce trips between fjords, so if that is not practicable may be used for other proposals. #submarineFloating #submarine #Russia #Navy #Russian #Sweden #nuclear #SharkWeek #India #yellow #sea #ocean

Micro Camera: This camera fits into a syringe, it has also been printed in 3D. In recent decades we have seen the size reduction technology has become commonplace, devices that years ago were huge and heavy today are a fraction of what they were, and some have even gone to join another makes that task and many more. Today we have a new proof of this miniaturization thanks to the development of the University of Stuttgart in Germany, where they have created a micro-camera that fits inside a syringe, but has also been printed in 3D. Some components and the housing are manufactured in a 3D printer, you have placed three lenses that are installed in an optical fiber having 100 microns wide, that putting on the protective shell increases its size to 120 microns, ie, a little more than the thickness of two human hairs. This allows it to be injected into the body for endoscopic examinations, as it has the ability to focus on objects at a distance of 3 mm, which is ideal for studying human organs and even parts of the brain. The scientists responsible for the project created this camera in order to explore the interior of the human body without using more invasive methods, but its potential goes beyond because it can serve as a monitoring device, installed on drones, autonomous cars and up robots, since their small size will allow you to help a lot of tasks. This is just one project at a very early stage of development, so we have to wait several years before seeing it in medical or commercial applications, plus there are still factors that need to refine as the issue of autonomy and transmission data, however, may be the beginning of something big. #Microcamera #Worlds #drone #best #aerialphotography #UniversityofStuttgart #healthmonitoring #surveillance #health #tech #Endoscopy #InjectableCamera

Ecocapsule: A small egg-shaped house
The Slovak company has been developing its egg-shaped house and reports that the first unit is already complete. An initial streak of 50 is being sold this year and more are planned for 2019. The Ecocapsule measures 4.67 x 2.2 m (15 x 7.2 ft) and has a maximum height of 2.5 m (8.2 ft). The interior space is 8.2 square meters (88 square feet) and weighs 1,650 kg (3,637 pounds) when your water tanks are full. The micro-housing has a steel structure with fiberglass coating and polyurethane foam insulation and does not need foundations, just a piece of solid and flat floor. The access to the small house is obtained through a sliding door and the interior has a bed and a small camper style bathroom with shower and composting toilet. The kitchenette includes a sink and hot plate, while a mini fridge is optional. In other places you will find a small rest area, a closet, a desk and storage space. The Ecocapsule receives power from a standard network connection or can operate off the grid with a matrix of 880 W solar panels and a 750 W wind turbine mounted on a telescopic pole, although these small micro turbines are generally not considered very effective . Both are connected to batteries and water can come from an integrated rainwater collection system that stores water in tanks or is extracted from an external source. A heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC) keeps the temperature comfortable and the Eco capsule can be controlled with an iOS or Android device, which provides information on how much energy is used and how much water is in it. water tanks, in addition to offering control over lighting, ventilation and other systems.

Sunway TaihuLight: The new world's fastest supercomputer is Chinese.
Sunway TaihuLight: The new world's fastest supercomputer is Chinese. Today is the thing of special computers, if a few minutes ago we taught them the micro with more cores inside, now it is the turn to more powerful system, created in China to dethrone countryman as Tianhe-2. The new supercomputer by the name of Sunway TaihuLight, and is the most capable on the planet, if we pay attention to the list of TOP500 people mounted. The most striking aspect may be that it is 100% 'Made in China', with what this means in a war that practically just arrived. It is also important to know that the United States vetoed the export of high-performance processors to China. Yes, the whole system has been built using processors designed and created in the country, they have decided not select anything that was conceived in the United States, or elsewhere on the planet. The architecture is not based on anything previously known. With its artillery get offer processing power of 93 petaflops, which is five times more than the US most powerful model - more powerful third -, and two to three times more efficient than Tianhe-2 (based on Intel processors). Sunway has 10,650,600 TaihuLight cores within 40,960 processors. In the main American machine there are 560,000 chips. Chinese supercomputer uses SW26010 processors that have been created by the Shanghai High Performance IC Design Centre. It is not only the most powerful, also helps increase the number of systems of this type are installed in China: 167. The United States is nearly tied that number with 165, so there is also an important race to qualify as the nation with more units. Most striking, according to the University of Tennessee, it is that there was a single supercomputer in 2001 on Chinese soil and in just over a decade have given back to the tortilla. The initial idea seems that it was upgrading the Tianhe-2, but with blocking export from the United States, decided it had to accelerate its '863', which promotes the development of systems with technology developed in China. It is crucial to have control over systems that will work on national security, or very important scientific research. #computer #TaihuLight #supercomputer #tech #Sunway

ARM: New chip design focuses on AI and auto-learning.
ARM: New chip design focuses on AI and auto-learning. RM has unveiled its next generation of processor designs, a new microarchitecture called Dynamiq. Tokens built using Dynamiq will be easier to configure, says ARM, allowing manufacturers to connect to each other a wider variety of CPUs. This should allow for more powerful systems on a chip, but also processors that better serve computing tasks of the future of artificial intelligence for auto-driving automobiles. It's a radical change in the way we build CPUs and the way we sew CPU together, "ARM's product marketing chief John Ronco told The Verge. It's going to be on smartphones and tablets, sure, but Also the creation of automotive networks and a whole range of other embedded devices.Anywhere a Cortex processor is used today, Dynamiq is going to be the next step forward Dynamiq based on the existing ARM approach "Big.little Dynamiq adds more variety to this system, the core support that are not only large or small, but a large group of powerful pairs, or processors, with a power-sucking, small, beloved. Anywhere in the middle, with the ability to connect up to eight different CPUs of any configuration an approach to the design of chips known as heterogeneous computing. One of the benefits of Big.little is that it adapts to the needs of the users. When a phone powered by Big.little is on hold, for example, you can call in the smaller, energy-efficient CPUs to keep things ticking more. However, when you have to boot an application or a game, you can rotate the most robust processors. Dynamiq will improve on this technique, says ARM, and make more flexible and powerful chipsets available at a lower price. "What Dynamiq allows is putting large CPUs on mid-range devices," Ronco says. "This has a clear real benefit, in terms of user experience. #Chips #Arm #Cpus #Computer #RM #NewGeneration #Custom #AbanTech #Processors #Dynamiq #ARM #CPUs #ArtificialIntelligenceCars #AutomaticDriving #CPU #marketing #ProductsARM #SmartPhones #Tablets #dispositives #learning #PowerfulProcessors #technology #IA #ChipDesign #Users #phone #MoreFlexiblePowerfulChipsets #NewChip

China Solar Power: doubled its capacity and is the largest producer in the world.
China Solar Power: doubled its capacity and is the largest producer in the world. According to the NEA, China closed 2016 with a photovoltaic capacity of 77.42 gigawatts, an increase of 34.54 gigawatts during the 12 months of last year. No doubt this is an impressive achievement, but we must bear in mind that we are talking about total capacity, something that may not sound so impressive if the relationship is made to the total population of the country. Today, photovoltaic solar energy represents only 1% of China's total energy production for China, while the renewable energy mix already occupies 11%, and plans to increase this to 20% % By 2030. For this, China will be investing $ 364 billion just for new renewable energy projects by 2020. Adding to this is the recent announcement that the Beijing government will reduce its use of coal by 30% by 2017, which has become a priority in the city in the face of alarming levels of pollution. To achieve this, four large coal-fired power plants will be closed down to be replaced by new solar farms this year, as well as new incentives for the sale of electric cars, as it is also contemplated to remove 300,000 old vehicles that contribute to the increase Of these levels. The reality is that China is betting very strongly to lead the adoption of clean energy, where despite the disadvantage of its large population, has large regions where it is feasible to install solar thermal and photovoltaic farms, as well as wind farms. #Energy #technology #SolarThermalFarms #AbanTech #photovoltaic #SolarEnergy #science #sun #EnvironmentalCare #pollution #CoalFired #PowerPlants #ElectricCars #CleanEnergy #WindFarms #GovernmentBeijing #CoalReduction #environment #ecology

Wikkelhouse: sustainable house can be made of cardboard.
Wikkelhouse: sustainable house can be made of cardboard. It is an idea of ​​the firm Fiction Factory which has shaped in reality an idea so striking as novel that responds to the name of Wikkelhouse. We distinguish house next to the Dutch word wikkel which comes to mean wrapping. In short it would be something like house wrapped. And with these two terms we can already guess where the shots go. And it is that we are before a house created with ecological materials carton of which they affirm is up to one third more sustainable than a traditional dwelling. Its creators affirm that yes, that it is an ecologically efficient solution and also solid, since it has a useful life of up to 100 years. For the construction of the Wikkelhouse has used a process that brings together different modules created from carton layers 24 layers in total that are pasted between them to provide consistency and resistance using an ecological adhesive. These layers are coated to achieve an insulation of the elements water, cold, sun of a compound based on a vegetable oil and are mounted on a base of wood that elevates and insets the terrain to avoid contact with the surface. These are models with a weight of about 6 tons that are easily installable and offers dimensions of almost 1.5 meters deep, 3.5 meters high and 4.6 meters wide, modules that as units Can be grouped together to form larger structures. This is a house designed for those places where either can not build or require fast and easily removable facilities that in turn can be integrated into the environment. #Wikkelhouse #AbanTech #technology #Design #architecture #ecology #art #VegetableOil #TraditionalDwelling #EcologicalSticker #sustainability #design

Jelly and sponges: first animals what appeared on Earth.
Jelly and sponges: first animals what appeared on Earth. A new paper published in Nature Ecology and Evolution suggests that old jellies, not sponges, represent the oldest branch of the family tree of animals. Researchers at Vanderbilt University and the University of Wisconsin Madison who conducted the study are not the first to make this claim, but used an emerging technique to analyze literally hundreds of thousands of genes, showing that comb jellies have The oldest genome of any animal. The researchers say the method could be used to solve other long-standing problems in evolutionary biology, but given the highly interpretive nature of their findings, it is likely that the sponge gelatine debate will continue to infuriate. Scientists noted animals on the so-called tree of life through ocular organisms, designating those who appeared simple as more primitive in terms of their evolutionary position. Things changed with the advent of genomics, when scientists gained the ability to read and compare the DNA of organisms and classify them accordingly. This new field, called phylogenetics, has revolutionized the way we define evolutionary relationships, but there are many gaps between the many branches of the tree of life-including the first trunk at the base of the animal tree. Traditional phylogenetic techniques have resolved about 95 percent of all evolutionary relationships, but five percent of the cases remain irresistible, leading to controversy. To understand why certain relationships in the tree of life continue to be controversial, the authors of the new study examined preexisting datasets and compared the individual genes of jellies and sponges to finally arrive at what they believe to be the first Animal of the world. #Earth #NewArticle #NatureEcology #AbanTech #technology #Evolution #FamilyAnimals #Traditional #PhylogeneticTechniques #Researchers #DescendedJellies #evolution #phylogenomics #genetics #AnimalEvolutio #AncientAnimals #CombJellies #MarineJellies #Sponges #biology #taxonomy #science #Gizmodo

Conservatory: Huge "horizontal skyscraper" rises in China
Conservatory: Huge "horizontal skyscraper" rises in China The reference of the developer CapitaLand to the skybridge as a horizontal skyscraper is an exaggeration. Called the Conservatory measures 300 m in length. Its curved structure is supported at a height of 250 m by four mixed-use towers, which include offices, apartments, commercial premises and hotels. An adjacent pair of 350 m towers are joined by a pair of smaller air bridges. In total, the project has eight planned towers. The interior of the Conservatory has an infinity pool, sky gardens and observation platforms. It includes a steel structure that weighs 12,000 tons and is enclosed with 3,200 pieces of glass and 4,800 aluminum panels. The engineering company Arup is lending its expertise to help the team navigate potential hazards such as high winds and seismic activity. To construct the steel structure it is first divided into nine segments: four segments that are built above the four towers, three segments of the medium suspended between the four towers that are prefabricated on the ground and lifted in place by hydraulic jacks; and two cantilevered segments that are assembled in short sections from the two ends of the towers. It is expected that the steel structure of the Conservatory will be fully operational by mid 2018. After this, the glazing will be installed along with the trees and plants for the gardens of heaven.

DARPA joins Musk’s Boring Co. initiative to advance tunneling technology
lon Musk’s tunneling venture, The Boring Company, would not be alone in its underground ventures for very long. Just recently, DARPA launched a competition aimed at creating an efficient, cost-effective and safe way to travel underground. The contest, dubbed by the US Department of Defense branch as the SubT Challenge, is open to interested teams of participants from all over the world, and it has a pretty hefty prize waiting for its lucky winners. As noted in a DARPA press release, the competition asks its participants to develop effective systems that can aid humans in navigating, mapping and exploring underground locations. Unlike Musk’s The Boring Company, which is primarily geared towards addressing “soul-destroying traffic” in densely populated areas, DARPA’s SubT Challenge is mostly focused on underground life-saving innovations. Timothy Chung, the program manager for DARPA’s Tactical Technology Office (TTO), described one of the most pertinent reasons behind the agency’s initiative. According to Chung, DARPA’s upcoming underground system would provide a massive benefit during emergency situations. The SubT Challenge will involve teams that would be competing side-by-side along two different research tracks. Each team would have the option to pursue the Systems track, which develops actual hardware that would be tested on a physical course, or the Virtual track, which requires teams to come up with software-based systems that would be tested on a simulated course. Rival teams from both Systems and Virtual tracks will be competing in three preliminary Circuit events, each one addressing different underground environments, as noted in a Live Science report. The first event simulates man-made tunnel systems, the second mass transit and municipal infrastructure, and the third naturally-occurring cave networks. As noted by DARPA, “One of the main limitations facing warfighters and emergency responders in subterranean environments is a lack of situational awareness; we often don’t know what lies beneath us. The DARPA Subterranean Challenge aims to provide previously unimaginable situational awareness capabilities for operations underground.” The SubT Challenge Finals, which will be held in 2021, will require competing teams to put their creations to the test using various challenges from all three underground environments. The winning team for the Systems track will receive $2 million, while the team that wins the Virtual track will take home $750,000. Interested groups who would like to take a crack at DARPA’s SubT Challenge can submit their applications by January 18, 2018. As DARPA starts its underground initiatives through the SubT Challenge, Elon Musk’s Boring Company continues to make significant progress with its operations. Early last month, Musk’s appropriately-named company published the first images of a proposed tunnel map for Los Angeles. The map included a Phase 1 tunnel that connects the SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne with Culver City, as well as a proposed Phase 2 route that extends further into the greater LA region. The Boring Company has seen a significant amount of support from many US cities as well, including Los Angeles, where Mayor Eric Garcetti welcomed the new underground initiative for the city’s transportation system. Furthermore, back in August, Hawthorne’s city council approved Musk’s tunneling project, with Mayor Alex Vargas expressing his full support for the underground initiative.

Scientists: discover how to turn any wood into a material as strong as steel
A group of scientists has discovered a new process to be able to transform any type of wood into a material stronger than steel, and even more than some titanium alloys. It is a new technique to densify the wood without softening it or returning it to its original state, which has been developed by the team of Liangbing Hu, a material scientist at the University of Maryland, and published in the journal Nature. With it, it could not only revolutionize industries such as construction, but also create resistant plates. They have achieved this with a "simple" two-step process. In the first, you just have to boil the wood in a solution of sodium hydroxide and sodium sulfite. With this process, according to the researchers, it is possible to partially eliminate lignin and hemicellulose, two natural polymers that participate in the hardening of the cell walls of plants, while leaving cellulose in wood almost intact. Then the resulting wood is pressed, and that compression is maintained while heating it. With this they apply a combination of pressure and heat that collapses their cell walls and encourages the formation of chemical bonds that strengthen the material on a nanoscale. Through this process, researchers have managed to create a compressed wood three times denser than the one that has not been treated. And what's more, the resulting wood is 10 times harder to break, 20 times stiffer and 50 times more resistant to compression. With this, a supermadera is obtained so versatile, moldable and resistant that it could compete with steel alloys. And the best part is that this material can be created in a much cheaper way than steel alloys, since wood is a raw material that literally grows from trees.

Samsung Blind Cap: cap with bluetooth that will revolutionize the Paralympic swimming.
Samsung Blind Cap: cap with bluetooth that will revolutionize the Paralympic swimming. Samsung and Cheil Spain have spent months developing the Blind Cap. It is a simple swim cap that integrates a Bluetooth system vibration, so that the coach may warn the athlete when it reaches the end of the lane without touching it. The cap has been developed in collaboration with the Spanish Paralympic Committee, and all you have to do is press a button coach in a specific application. In doing so the athlete cap vibrate, warning that has reached the end of the lane and it is the right time to make the turn. The application will be available to watch Samsung Gear S2 and any type of mobile Android, and also record data for the year as the total rate or lap times, displaying them with graphs on the mobile for the coach to have a better view of how it is carrying out the exercise. Blind Cap not arrive in time for the next Paralympics, but already being tested. Samsung started talking about the project in May, and is using the framework of the Olympic Games in Rio for more impact. At the moment it is only a prototype, so there is still no date set for the sale, but aims to be an invention that, although simple, could help thousands of athletes. #samsung #BlindCap #paralympic #normalizar #AbanTech #Superhumans #technology #Mobile #android #tech #application #deportistas #prototipo #GorroBluetooth #CheilSpain #sportsmen, #prototype

Source solar panel: Generates drinking water instead of electricity.
Source solar panel: Generates drinking water instead of electricity. The shortage of potable water is today one of the most important problems on our planet, which affects mainly to remote areas and developing countries, which in turn causes bad conditions of hygiene and health, as well as a Significant impact on the quality of life of people. Source is a solar panel created by startup Zero Mass Water that aims to extract moisture from the air to condense it to provide drinking water. Cody Friesen, an engineering professor at Arizona State University, is the head of Zero Mass Water and responsible for the development of Souce, which is born from a very simple principle in nature, that we all own the air that We breathe, however, almost nobody is of the water that drinks. Friesen mentions that anyone with air conditioning is able to draw water from the air, so there is no magic. To understand the operation of Source just imagine a salt shaker with grains of rice, which are able to absorb moisture to keep the salt dry, and this consists of this solar panel. Source has a material that acts as if it were those grains of rice, only here the moisture is extracted from the air. All the extracted water is purified by filters, in addition to adding calcium and magnesium to match the taste and pH of the bottled water. This panel is capable of generating up to 5 liters of water each day, enough for a family of four according to the company. #Source #Air #water #solar #Abantech #panel #energy #HygieneHealth #electricity #family #SourceSolarPanel #technology #innovation #DrinkingWater #Health #pH #renewableenergy #greenenergy

Extremely Large Telescope: The world's largest optical and infrared telescope.
Extremely Large Telescope: The world's largest optical and infrared telescope. Scientists are a step closer to understanding the inner-workings of the universe following the laying of the first stone, and construction starting on the world's largest optical and infrared telescope. With a main mirror 39 metres in diameter, the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT), is going to be, as its name suggests, enormous. Unlike any other before it, ELT is also designed to be an adaptive telescope and has the ability to correct atmospheric turbulence, taking telescope engineering to another level. To mark the construction's milestone, a ceremony was held at ESO's Paranal residencia in northern Chile, close to the site of the future giant telescope which will be on top of Cerro Armazones, a 3046-metre peak mountain. Among many other representatives from industry, the significance of the project was highlighted by the attendance of the Director General of ESO, Tim de Zeeuw, and President of the Republic of Chile, Michelle Bachelet Jeria. The ELT is being built by the European Southern Observatory (ESO), an international collaboration supported by the UK's Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC). Oxford University scientists are playing a key role in the project, and are responsible for the design and construction of its spectrograph; 'HARMONI', an instrument designed to simultaneously take 4000 images, each in a slightly different colour. The visible and near-infrared instrument will harness the telescope's adaptive optics to provide extremely sharp images. 'HARMONI' will enable scientists to form a more detailed picture of the formation and evolution of objects in the Universe. Supporting researchers to view everything from the planets in our own solar system and stars in our own and nearby galaxies with unprecedented depth and precision, to the formation and evolution of distant galaxies that have never been observed before. Niranjan Thatte, Principal Investigator for 'HARMONI' and Professor of Astrophysics at Oxford's Department of Physics, said: 'For me, the ELT represents a big leap forward in capability, and that means that we will use it to find many interesting things about the Universe that we have no knowledge of today. 'It is the element of 'exploring the unknown' that most excites me about the ELT. It will be an engineering feat, and its sheer size and light grasp will dwarf all other telescopes that we have built to date.' A time capsule, created by members of the ESO team and sealed at the event, will serve as a lasting memory of the research and the scale of ambition and commitment behind it. Contents include a copy of a book describing the original scientific aims of the telescope, images of the staff that have and will play a role in its construction and a poster of an ELT visualisation. The cover of the time capsule is engraved with a hexagon made of Zerodur, a one-fifth scale model of one of the ELT's primary mirror segments. Tim DE Zeeuw, Director General of ESO, said: 'The ELT will produce discoveries that we simply cannot imagine today, and it will surely inspire numerous people around the world to think about science, technology and our place in the Universe. This will bring great benefit to the ESO member states, to Chile, and to the rest of the world.' The ELT is set for completion in 2024, and as the visualisation images show, it is going to be 'out of this world.' #ExtremelyLargeTelescope #Abantech #TEFL #TESOL #grammar #sougofollow #yauc #CeaMaiMareOglindaConvexaDinLume #ExtremelyLargeTelescope #OglindaConvexa #ELT #ESO #HARMONI #TechnologyFacilitiesCouncil #STFC #ESL #learnenglish #EFL #English

Exoskeleton Indego: robotic exoskeleton that provides mobility to people with disabilities. Indego is a project that has more than 10 years of development, which consists of a robotic exoskeleton that provides mobility to people with disabilities that prevent them from moving your legs. Its creators requested approval from the Food and Administration (FDA) in 2012, and have finally received a positive response. After some modifications and additional applications, the exoskeleton Indego has received approval from the FDA, which puts it as an endorsed for clinical and personal use device, allowing it goes on sale in the United States and some countries supported the FDA standards. This exoskeleton is second in the world to have the FDA approval, however everything indicates that this will be the first to be marketed. Its functions provides a rigid support attached to the hips, knees and feet, all through a medium that is placed around the torso. Has a pair of programmed computer and powered by rechargeable batteries electric motors, which allow the user to be displaceable as a kind of Segway, that is, if the person bends forward or backward, the exoskeleton forward or Step back, just as if the person leans back for a while, the device will help you sit. Indego has a weight of just 11.79 kilograms, one of the most currently light, its creators think put on sale in the coming weeks for an estimated retail price of $ 80,000. But that's not all, because thanks to FDA approval, are fighting for insurance companies to cover the total cost of the exoskeleton so that more people can access it, marking a new milestone in this type of device. #mobility #exoskeletons #Health #Technology #RoboticsArtificial #Intelligence #Indego #IndegoExoskeleton #FDA #exoskeletonFDA #UnitedStates #Segway #device

Memory RRAM Moneta: first memory intended for devices that do not use much information transmission.
Memory RRAM Moneta: first memory intended for devices that do not use much information transmission. A few days ago, the company based in California, Adesto Technologies showed a new member to its family of memories, is called Moneta and is the first memory RRAM (Resistive memory random-access) aimed at small devices that do not use much transmission of information, as the case of some quantifiers or devices that record biometric data, as well as those dedicated to activate items in homes or intelligent buildings. The development of memories RRAM is not new, many companies have been working for several years in the development of these modules, which today only offer capabilities Kb, but many manufacturers are convinced that they will achieve replace memory NAND Flash in the not too distant future. What is now doing Adesto is to exploit a niche little known in this technology, which is the so-called Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory (EEPROM), which allows read and write information specified with a very low power consumption, enabling create devices with specific tasks equally. According to Adesto, Moneta consumes only one-twentieth of energy than its closest competitor, and here the company puts us such a device that records biometric data at a rate of 128 bytes per minute, which is equipped with a RRAM module 256 Kilobytes and button cell 10 milliamps. If the device has a module of competence, autonomy would be approximately 4.5 months, but for the new module Adesto autonomy would be just over 25 years. This new family of memories RRAM operates at very low voltages and does not require independent modules load, is available in capacities of 32, 64, 128 and 256 Kb, the problem is that if any company wants to use any of these modules must make adjustments the chip designs, which are mostly configured to support Flash memories. #MemoryRRAMmoneta #MemoryRRAM #RRAMmoneta #MemoryMoneta #MemoryRAM #Technology #Device #RAM #RRAM

In this project called OX are the hands of designer Gordon Murray, who has had as its mission to shape a vehicle that could well be sold in Ikea. One of the important premises when creating OX, while joining the sixty parties thereto should take no more than twelve hours at the three people in charge, they would not be specialists in these conflicts. Underdeveloped places in Africa could find a cheap and easy way to mount a transport system capable of carrying about 1,900 kilos. Gordon Murray is the head of boxy vehicle designer, best known for special automotive adventures as the spectacular McLaren F1 or the economic and supermini T.27. But it is not only in the project, accompanies Torquil Norman philanthropist, owner of Global Vehicle Trust, which is the company that gives life to the project. It all started about six years ago, and they are now in the final stages of testing. The system chosen is not to drive all four wheels, it contenpla with the front to get a lighter and affordable package, the cost would be 5% of a normal car. For its height and design is able to get into rivers with up to one meter high, or complicated ways, and that infrastructure is going to move where not invite a lot to think about comfort. Its creators say that no manufacturer is interested in creating an affordable and capable vehicle to areas as discussed, they made thoroughly lost without intention of being back nothing in return. They have already spent between 3 and 4 million in the design phase. As for the engine, not anything special, but well known to nourish and easily fix: diesel engine with 2.2 liter displacement Ford origin. #van #Africa #GordonMurray#AbanTech #Makers #Vehicles #ox #vehicle #automobile #technology #news #TransportSystem #GordonMurray #GlobalVehicleTrust #GVT #OxTruck #McLarenF1

Australopithecus Afarensi Lucy: Our common ancestor fell from a tree and died.
Australopithecus Afarensi Lucy: Our common ancestor fell from a tree and died. Species to which Lucy belongs, discovered by the team of Donald Johanson, Yves Coppens and Tim White in 1974 at the site of Hadar, and that there does between 2.9 and 3.9 million years, is considered our common ancestor. According to a study by the University of Texas at Austin, and published in Nature, probably he died as a result of injuries sustained after falling from a tree. Since its discovery, there has been debate over whether he could climb trees as their own ancestors. In the study, after analyzing the 40 percent available skeleton Lucy to create a digital archive of more than 35,000 images in computed tomography, it was discovered that the right humerus was fractured in a way not seen in other fossils, presenting a series of sharp and clean breaks with small bone remnants still present. As he explained the study's lead author, anthropologist John Kappelman: It is ironic that the fossil in the center of this debate on the role of human evolution arboreismo possibly died from injuries sustained after falling from a tree. This is a result of a compressive fracture when the hand hit the ground after a crash impact shoulder elements together to cause a unique signature in the humerus. #Lucy #Australopithecus #Fossil #afarensis #Wikiwand #tree #Tesla #paleoant #Naledi #Kenya #johanson #fossils #Paleontology #human #science #species #AbanTech #HumanAncestor #Museum #EvolutionHuman #studio

Samsung Auto Connect MWC 2016: The dongle that turns your car into a WiFi and more.
Samsung Auto Connect MWC 2016: The dongle that turns your car into a WiFi and more. The Mobile World Congress is one of the three most important technology fairs of the year, and although it is mainly focused on the world of smartphones also find gems like this, the Samsung Auto Connect. Like almost all new devices being marketed Samsung, the Korean giant has backed Tizen OS as your operating system and search by price sneak wherever car makers are failing. The only caveat is that to use it shall need an OBD-II connection, used to connect to the onboard computer. Not all cars have a port as well but it takes several years on the market, from 1996 onwards, so compatibility is high and maybe have one without knowing it. It is located under the steering wheel and is used by the official workshops for readings car when he has to pass review. With the new Samsung Auto Connect we can not only create a WiFi network inside the car but also have real-time access to the onboard computer. Samsung is committed to creating applications for Android and iOS that will get the data directly from the Auto Connect or cloud, where they will be synchronized. The added features are many and very interesting, as a system "Find My Car" to send us the same location, or data access performance and maintenance of the vehicle. Knox always protected to prevent leakage of unwanted data. The best, of course, is that this is a device that can switch on and off at will, and will be compatible with any vehicle that has the OBD-II port (under the steering wheel), so we can take on the road while the vehicle where you go is not ours. Just we need a data contract with a carrier (AT & T for now) and driving. Having a WiFi, of course. The Samsung Auto Connect is launched in the second half of the year in the United States. For now, Samsung has announced an agreement with AT & T to market with data rates although it is possible that the offer will be extended as the release date approaches. For Europe and the rest of the world will have to wait some more. #autoconnect #privacy #Ubuntu #tech #opensource #HowTo #hackathon #ere2011 #DevOps #CS #CounterStrike #Samsung #Smartphone #UangTunai #Galaxy #android #iphone #tech #Apple #500ribu #GalaxyS6 #Mobile
