If you’re one of the Harry Potter fans, you’ll know that the Harry has an invisible cloak, which it will make the body disappear, once the person put on it. Believe it or not, a group of researcher from the University of California at Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have been created a material that can bend visible light in three dimensions and the sizes is in the Nanoscale, which it can be measured in billionths of meter! Although this is really a shocking and advanced breakthrough in the metamaterials field, however it still has two severe limitations. Firstly, it will only work on the microwave range of the light spectrum and secondly, it will only work on thin, two-dimensional systems!
Are you already bored with your plain and ordinary printer, and would like to have some changes on it? Well, then you must hang out and discover how the creative VUW students managed to develop the innovative 3D printers, which it’s bring more excitement and spice up your life. The genius senior Victoria University of Wellington Design students have successfully created the 3D printers in just three weeks! The main goal for this design is to develop a “green” 3D printer in less than 4 weeks with only limited budget. A group of creative students practicing the “3R” concept and had applied it into the new 3D printers design. Below here are some of the unique and eco-friendly 3D printer’s prototypes: Stack The students have cleverly used the waste paper from generated by a bank and a â€˜steampunk’ sewing machine. They used the smart concept to create layered forms, which based on an interpretation of the banks statistical data. This design is simply the finest combination of the past and present (Brilliant idea!).
The development of science and technology grows in leaps and boundaries phase, especially in this 21st century, when everything seems to change in rapid speed. Many of the scientists and astronomers have discovered that the universe was formed 14 billion years ago, while our mother planet, The Earth just a measly 4.55 billion years old. For this purpose, a newly and high-tech nano-sized electronic device has been developed, which it can be used to see the 98% invisible light dating that emitted since the first universe “bing bang”. This diminutive nano-sized electronic device is the fine project cooperation in between the physicsts at Rutgers University, the State University of New York at Buffalo and the NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. It is an ultra sensitive to track the light in the far-infrared spectrum (the longest wave in the infrared wavelengths) and the size of this device is 100 times smaller than the thickness of your hair!
Will you believe it; you actually can vaporize wood and even melt down the steel, by only focusing sunlight with mirrors? It sounds crazy to be true, but a few geniuses MIT students have successfully prove themselves and transform this idea into a reality. The main objective for this project is based on super-efficiency solar energy and environmental friendly concept. The steel-melting solar mirror is a 12-foot by 12-foot parabolic mirror, or you’re also can considered it as a solar concentrator; that is primarily made from the off-the-shelf metal framing which fitted the bent mirrors to enable the sunlight to be focused in a single point.
What can you do with a ball pen? You probably will say, “We use the ball pen for the writing purpose and what are you expecting with it?” OK, this is the common sense. If you can transform the ordinary ball pen into a small Pen Solder Dispenser, would you want to try it? You need the following things before starting this project: One ball pen (prefer the one with metal tip) Silver bearing solder for electronic work Razor blade (for cutting the solder or pen) Ok, let’s started the party now…
Did you have the hard time before, which you’ve lost your cell phone and upset for several day? Well, if you’re not a trend worshipper or stylish follower, then this Hop-On 1800 GSM Cell Phone might be a good alternative for you. The Hop-On company had been recognized as one of the cell phone manufacturer, which focusing more in the Eco-friendly matter. This new release of 1800 series also put Hop-On as one of the pioneer in the 3R concept. The 1800 series available in al-band: 850/1900 MHz (US version) 900/1800 MHz (Europe and Asia version) Both of the phones feature a minimum talk time that up to four hours and with 150 hours of standby time. The length of the cell phone is about 9.7 cm and weight 77 gram, makes this 1800 series a petite and cute cell phone. Another great feature for this 1800 series is we cannot trash it away whenever we want. However, the manufacturer will offers the cell phone users a $5 rebate on each returned phone. This also means this 1800 GSM cell phone cost you a measly $5 to own it! [Source]
