The Great Helper of Farmer is Now Available!

Agriculture and farming are two important fields in human beings life, either in the past or in present days. In order to cultivate and increase the productivity, many researchers have been trying their best to invent some robot that can become a helper in the farming industry. The Japanese researchers have successfully invented a robot suit, where it’s main purpose is to help reduce the heavy burden of harvesting. If you refer to the above figure, you can see that a student is wearing a prototype assistance machine that equipped with 8 motors and 16 sensors. This robot suit is weighs about 55 pounds and it can assist the elderly farmers who need support for their leg muscles and joints, especially when they keep a crouching position or lift their arms high. According to the researchers, they’re looking to use this type of robotic suit in two to three years at an initial price ranging from 500,000 to 1,000,000 yen (It’s equivalent to about $5,00 to $10,000 U.S. dollars). Although the cost is a little bit pricey, but this robot suit can be a perfect helper in the farming industry for sure.

Fuel Cell-Powered Devices is Going to Bring Down the World!

Ok, you’re now in the mood listening music with your iPod or cell phone, but it suddenly running out of charges! Yeah, aren’t you a little bit frustrated about this situation? For overcome the above matter, the tiny fuel cells that powered by combustible liquids or gasses have been looked forward as the permanent solution. The significant part about this fuel cell is it could power an iPod, cell phone, or laptop days! The concept of the fuel cell is a tiny amount of fuel flows into a small chip to generate electricity without combustion, and it would allow users to skip the wall plug. Hence, the users don’t have to worry about running out of charge anymore. The Liliputian System Inc. was planning to introduce a portable fuel cell late next year for any device, where a USB port can quickly charge it. The cigarette-pack-size charger will use a canister of butane, which it’s the same fuel that is used in cigarette lighters to power an iPod, GPS device, or even digital camera. The most exciting part about the fuel cell is each teaspoon of the fuel can provide 20 times the run time of Li-ion battery!

The Stirling cycle – technology beyond expectation

The key code of a Stirling engine is that a down right calculate of a gas is sealed within the engine. The Stirling cycle involves a cycle of check that mutation the hassle of the gas within the engine, causing it to do work. There are numerous properties of gasses that are risky to the venture of Stirling engines: If you have a rigid amount of gas in a rigid level of celestial and you hoist the temperature of that gas, the hassle will improve. If you have a rigid amount of gas and you compress it (decrease the level of its space), the temperature of that gas will improve. Let’s go through apiece part of the Stirling chain while looking at a simplified Stirling engine. One cylinder is heated by an outdoor heat bound (such as fire), and the other is cooled by an outdoor cooling bound. The gas chambers of the two cylinders are allied, and the pistons are allied to apiece other mechanically by a linkage that determines how they will move in relation to one another.

An inside and outside of an electric car

This emotional sedan began its life as a customary, gasoline-powered 1994 Geo Prism. Here are the modifications that twisted it into an emotional car: The gasoline engine with the muffler, catalytic converter, tailpipe and gas reservoir, were all severed. The existing legal transmission was left in place, and it was pinned in instant gear. A new AC emotional motor was bolted to the transmission using an adapter plate. An emotional controller was added to restrain the AC motor. A series tray was installed in the mystify of the car.

When the Old-fashioned Sewing Machine Meet New Technology

For those of you that born in 1970s or 1980s, you must be very familiar with the old type sewing machine, where your mom always used it to sew some beautiful clothes with it. Most of the sewing machine in that moment was mostly using our feet to step on it and it does require a lot of exercise indeed! If you look on the sewing machine closely, you might find that it’s really a wonderful and magnificent invention that ever created. What do you think, if you combine the old type sewing machine with the latest technology? Isn’t this sound fabulous to you here? Yep, what you’re about to learn today is to develop a sound visible sewing machine, where you can put all the high technology stuffs, such as equalizers and sub-titles inside the sound visible. By doing this, you’ll change the sewing sound into an awesome visible sound telegraph instantly! The visible sound sewing machine will take the sound input and convert it into a sound wave of thread on textile. The sewing machine is synonymous with producing products in industry. Hence, it served as a fitting analogy for the project.
