It’s Time to Cool Down Your Electronics!

Most of the electronic parts in present days generate a huge amount of heat. To be honest, the excessive heat might risk your laptops or other devices out of function. In order to get the rid of this problem, the manufacturers are mostly equipping them with metal plates to discharge the heat. Well, in this case, the brand new composite can do this even better. As we know that, most electronic components generate radiant heat. It becomes harder to dissipate the heat, if they’re more components are packed into a limited space! Since the electronic components can only withstand temperatures from 90 to 130 degree Celsius, the manufacturers have no choice, but to mount a small copper or aluminium plate underneath them. This act is to conduct the heat away from the components. For your information, the metal plate is normally soldered to ceramic components or silicon. If the system…

The Incredible Steel Melting Solar Mirror – You’re better watch out for your Backyard Trees!

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.
