Hyperion a striking vertical city: a solution to the environmental problem and housing. now comes a new and interesting project focused on India, where in addition to being sustainable, seeks to be a single ecosystem. Created by the architectural firm Vincent Callebaut Belgian, Hyperion's, named in homage to the world's tallest living tree, it is a project of sustainable agro-ecosystem can withstand environmental changes caused by climate change. The format presented is a vertical city garden created by six towers, each with a wooden structure, which is thought to obtain forest Delhi. Each tower has 36 floors to a height of 116 meters, the project objective is to create a city that combines urban nature and farming on a small scale, this to protect the environment and diversity. And decentralize energy and food deindustrialization. Each tower will be connected by suspended bridges, they will be equipped with high vegetation, collection systems rain, areas composting areas for fish, individual for each family maintains a vegetable balconies, specialized gases, in addition to small farms with livestock in the bases of the towers. Of course it will recycling systems, solar cells and the design of the corridors will allow wind flow to drive turbines. The foundations of the city will be in concrete and steel to strengthen it, will have apartments of various sizes and furniture will be made from natural and recycled materials. The project has already been approved by the city and the study is scheduled to complete construction in 2022, ready for an opening near 2025.

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.

Pyramid House: Pyramid-shaped glazed roof lets home owners enjoy 360 degree views
It may not hold a candle to its forbears in Egypt, but the Pyramid House, by VOID Architecture, does boast some additions that even the most powerful pharaoh couldn't dream of. The home is topped by a glazed conservatory that offers excellent views of the landscape, while internet-connected systems provide remote control of heating and lighting. The Pyramid House has a total floorspace of 125 sq m (1,345 sq ft), spread over three floors. The idea for its unusual shape came about when the owner requested a unique home that would make the most out of their plot of land, which is situated between a forest and lake in Finland. It comprises a prefabricated timber frame and is clad in spruce planks. Inside, the decor is simple and clean, with plain wood throughout. The home includes a kitchen, two bedrooms, a sauna, and two bathrooms. The living room is double-height and its glazed wall faces the lake, while a terraced area surrounds the perimeter to offer a flexible outdoor space. The most notable area, though, is a glazed observatory on the uppermost floor, which the firm says offers 360 degree views and allows lots of natural light inside. "The main feature of the house is the fully glazed observatory at the top of the building," explains the firm. "From here, elevated and unobstructed views of the beautiful surroundings can be enjoyed. This space is conceived to appreciate the peace and quiet offered by the views, but also as a mountain top from where to dominate the internal spaces of the house as a whole." In addition to a stone-lined wood burner, the Pyramid House has underfloor heating joined to an efficient ground-source heat system. The lighting and heating systems are also automated and connected to the internet, ensuring the home is kept warm and allowing the owners to control it from afar (most likely with an iOS or Android app, though we've no word on the exact tech used). The Pyramid House began construction in 2015 and was just completed recently.

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

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

Neuroprotetic interface spinal brain: brain implants.
Neuroprotetic interface spinal brain: brain implants. Spinal cord injuries are undoubtedly the most dangerous that we can face, since the nerves in this area do not have the capacity for regeneration as happens in the rest of the body, so an injury in this area could represent from the loss of Mobility in one limb, to a joint paralysis of the four limbs. Now for the first time in history it seems that we are facing an opportunity to heal spinal cord injuries, as a group of researchers from China, Europe and the United States have developed a technique that has already been successfully tested on two monkeys with paralysis , This by means of a system that has been christened the neuroproteic interface of the spinal brain. For years, we have been working on finding an efficient method to connect the brain to spinal nerves that control muscle movement after injury, but attempts have been made in complex solutions that require large connected computers and even prostheses with one Lots of cables, but in the end no solution has managed to restore the independent movement that the patient had before the injury. This new development consists of a small brain implant wireless brain-computer interface or BCI capable of receiving all the signals that originate in the cerebral cortex, and that are responsible for sending orders for muscle movement. The interesting thing about this solution is that the implant is able to transmit the signals wirelessly to implants installed in the spine and that are paired with the BCI. The first tests were carried out on two monkeys with lesions that did not allow mobility in one of the hind legs, where the BCI was installed by means of electrodes in the motor cortex of the animals, making it protrude a little over their heads. Here the BCI was able to record the basic signals of the brain to send them to the spinal implants, a task that was done practically without any delay and without the need for cables. One of the monkeys regained mobility within six days, while the other did so within two weeks. #BrainImplants #Brain #mobility #Health #Abantech #SpinalCord #MedicineHealth #NeuroproteticInterface #SpinalBrain #science #technology #EfficientMethod #patient #MuscleMovement #ComputerInterfaceBCI

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

Podbike: recumbent tricycle surrounded by an aerodynamic body Dual-motor
Developed by the Norwegian company Elpedal, the Podbike has pedals, but are directly connected to a generator. As the pilot pedals, the power they generate is electrically transferred to a pair of hub engines, one on each of the rear wheels. A removable battery pack adds some extra power, which enables a maximum electronically limited speed of 25 km / h (16 mph). The range of the battery is approximately 60 km (37 miles), although additional packages can be added in parallel to increase that figure. That said, adding more batteries will increase the weight, which is meant to be in the environment of 40 to 50 kg (88 to 110 lb) with a single battery. Currently, the Podbike exists as a prototype rolling chassis. The final product will also include a complete thermoplastic cover for better aerodynamics and weather protection, along with a full LED lighting system, and can accommodate an adult plus a child (or other load) on the back. It should even be possible to tilt the vehicle up on its backside, so it takes up less space when parking. Plans for the first full test units to be ready early next year, with a Norwegian launch that takes place in early 2019, and a European release planned for 2020. The price is estimated at NOK 50,000 (around of US $ 6,143) in Norway - including VAT and local sales tax, and € 4,600 ($ 5,361) plus taxes and shipping in other European markets.

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.

Modular domes: low cost "DIY" houses for nature lovers.
Modular domes: low cost "DIY" houses for nature lovers.  It is about hemispheres or domes (dome in English), and it is the same as the company it has come up with. The idea: that they be simple construction and transport modules, that can be expanded and structured to the user's liking and that are also energy efficient. The building materials are mainly metal, wood and polycarbonate. There are different models according to the environment that we choose and the design that we like more, but the basic structure consists of a base of 24.9 square meters per module (about 6 meters in diameter) based on galvanized steel, a wooden structure ( Resistant) and transparent or opaque modules (made of thermoformed polycarbonate or PMMA with a layer of mineral wool or aluminum) 23 mm thick and resistant to ultraviolet radiation. Modules of one type or another can be combined at the whim of the future inhabitant, so that the dome is to a greater or lesser extent a window to the exterior, in addition to comply with the European insulation standard (SIST EN 13162) and be safe before A fire, according to explain in the web of the project. And the base also serves as a gardener, being able to plant plants, and to collect water from the rain. At the moment there are four types of Smartdome: Skydome (with some elevation), Aquadome (for waterways), Treedome (incorporating vegetation) and Snowdome (for colder environments in which it snows or snow). In fact the company aims to lead the production of thermal houses in environments such as the Alps, something that would certainly test thermal insulation. With respect to energy efficiency, Željko Hočevar (from Smartdome) explains in Inhabitat that technical efficiency is combined with not having an impact on the environment, as well as taking advantage of resources (such as rainwater). The energy aspect lies in the materials, since the insulation helps to reduce the energy consumption (as they point). #ModularDomes #Abantech #ModularDomesDIY

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

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

Ecocapsule: This egg-shaped capsule is a place to live able to generate its own energy. Update: The Ecocapsule has finally gone on sale in a special edition of only 50 units with a price of 79,900 euros. At the end of these 50 units may be purchased at a lower price (unspecified) during 2017, which already can be booked with 300 euros. 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

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

DARPA: a new propulsion technology capable of operating up to hypersonic speeds
The contract awards are part of the agency's Advanced Full Range Engine (AFRE) program launched several years ago to develop reusable aircraft capable of hypersonic speeds of about Mach 5 (about 3,300 miles per hour). The program seeks to develop a propulsion system capable of exceeding the top speed of traditional jet-turbine engines that top out at about Mach 2.5 while developing a reusable capability required for sustained flight at Mach 5. Achieving hypersonic flight is currently achieved using expendable rockets. The current capability gap "means that any air-breathing hypersonic vehicles developed today would use disposable rockets for one-time boosts up to operating speed, limiting the vehicles’ usefulness," program officials noted. AFRE seeks to move beyond scramjet propulsion to demonstrate a reusable propulsion system using new kinds of hydrocarbon-based propellants to achieve subsonic, supersonic and hypersonic speeds. The result would be a propulsion system that operates from takeoff all the way though hypersonic cruising speed. "Instead of designing an entirely new kind of engine, we’re envisioning an inventive hybrid system that would combine and improve upon the best of off-the-shelf turbine and ramjet/scramjet technologies," noted Christopher Clay, DARPA's program manager for AFRE. Over the last month, DARPA has awarded contracts to Aerojet Rocketdyne Inc. and Orbital ATK to develop and conduct ground tests of a prototype engine. The Orbital ATK contract was valued at $21.4 million. The amount of the Rocketdyne deal was not disclosed. The contractors will seek to demonstrate a new engine concept called "turbine-based combine cycle" (TBCC) which uses a turbine engine for lower speeds along with a dual-mode ramjet/scramjet to achieve supersonic speeds. AFRE aims to advance a TBCC engine concept, which would use a turbine engine for low-speed operations and a dual-mode ramjet—which would work efficiently whether the air flowing through it is subsonic (as in a ramjet) or supersonic (as in a scramjet)—for high-speed operations.The two components of the hybrid engine would share a common forward-facing air intake and rear-facing exhaust nozzle to release thrust, DARPA said.

City of Champions Stadium: City of Los Angeles will have spectacular new stadium in 2019.
City of Champions Stadium: City of Los Angeles will have spectacular new stadium in 2019. Finally after many proposals, debates, insults and rumors, it's official, the winning proposal for the new stadium in the city of Los Angeles, will be proposed by the Rams team in 2014 for the area of ​​Inglewood, beating the proposal Raiders Carson. The stadium, known so far under the provisional name "City of Champions Stadium ', will be located in Inglewood in the southwest of Los Angeles, which is located old Hollywood Park Racetrack until 2013. The stadium will be part of a large entertainment and shopping complex of more than 121 hectares, which will include hotels, residential spaces, shops, restaurants, theaters, entertainment venues for children and youth, as well as the new headquarters of the NFL and TV studios NFL Networks. The complex will be equipped with the latest technology, such as charging stations for electric cars, rain collection stations, recycling plants and waste water treatment, as well as solar cells located throughout the complex, which is responsible for obtaining all the energy needed to light overnight, since the idea is that the whole complex is operated at 85% renewable energy ... Of course it will be equipped with free WiFi connection to gigabit speeds, using similar devices released in New York. The ability to regular season games will be 70,000 spectators, but may be extended postseason to 80,000. It is also intended for mass events such as concerts and Super Bowls, where the maximum capacity will be 100,000 spectators, this thanks to its modular design. The roof of the stadium will feature colorful LED lights, which provide the ability to display images and information abroad. Inside the stadium is planned to install a circular double-sided OLED, where rumor has it that LG will be in charge of developing a big screen.

The ozone layer: Thirty years later is recovering, barrier against ultraviolet rays of the sun.
The ozone layer: Thirty years later is recovering, barrier against ultraviolet rays of the sun. We get good news from Antarctica. The ozone layer, the main barrier against ultraviolet rays of the sun begins to recover. After decades of weakness, the Antarctic hole is down 4 million square kilometers since 2000. That is eight times the size of Spain. Early in the century the ozone layer reached its maximum area of ​​25 million km2. Almost a decade after the entry into force of the Protocol of Montreal, the largest international effort to save the ozone layer, the trend has reversed. The ozone layer is a layer of gas that filters the sun waves arriving protecting the surface of the earth much of the ultraviolet rays that the sun sends us. In 1985 it was discovered that the layer was disappearing and was forming a hole over Antarctica. Now scientists have noted not only the shrinking of the hole, but have confirmed that the improvement is due to the ban on chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) was agreed in Montreal in 1987. CFCs, which until a few years ago found in aerosols, refrigerants and dry cleaning products, they have played a key role in the erosion of the ozone layer. So we can only recognize that is excellent news. Especially after discovering last October that the ozone depletion returned to a record size for those dates. Now researchers claim that the eruption of Calbuco, a volcano in southern Chile, contributed to the cyclical growth of the hole but the trend is to reduction. "It is expected that the ozone layer recovers, although very slowly. Today we can be confident that the measures we take at the time have put the earth on the road to recovery," according to MIT Professor Susan Solomon, one of the greatest experts in the world on this subject and director of research. And although his team estimated that with this pace of recovery the atmosphere will not be in perfect condition until 2050, Solomon results remind us of the importance of international cooperation to stop climate change. #ozone #ozonelayer #ozonehole #atmosphere16 #preservation #ozone #environment #September16 #pollution #InternationalDay #Antarctic #ViennaConvention #turnup #skincancer #Science #OzoneLayer

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.

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

Angel Particle: could lead to 100 MILLION times faster computers.
Angel Particle: could lead to 100 MILLION times faster computers. The discovery could have huge implications in the world of technology, especially in quantum computers that have the potential to be hundreds of millions of times more powerful than a normal computer. Google's initial tests and the D-Wave Nasa's quantum computer system proved to be astonishing a hundred million times faster than a traditional desktop. Hartmut Nevan, director of engineering at Google, said: "What a D-Wave does in a second would take a conventional computer 10,000 years to do." However, progress in a quantum computer has affected a kind of obstacle - in simple terms the bits carrying the information must be isolated from the noise that has so far been difficult to achieve. But in what is described as "a milestone in the field," physicists have discovered a particle known as Majorana's fermion, which is both matter and anti-matter and could make such computers available to the public in the future next. This is because the information could theoretically be separated into Majorana fermion, which means it could always be kept safe by driving incredibly fast computers. This discovery concludes one of the most intensive searches in fundamental physics, which lasted exactly 80 years. #AngelParticle #AngelParticleComputers #Computers #DWaveNasa #Abantech

Scientists create an inexpensive method to produce methanol with air
Scientists create an inexpensive method to produce methanol with air. Methanol is a molecule that is used as a raw material for many chemical compounds and is considered as a future source of fuel. The problem is that at present it is produced from natural gas and through a process that consumes a lot of energy and is therefore very expensive. This Thursday, a team of scientists at the University of Cardiff, UK, has published an article in the journal Science that have shown that they are able to create methanol in a much cheaper way. They have used methane, hydrogen peroxide and a cheap and very easy to get: oxygen from the air. The key of his method is in some catalysts, some elements that accelerate and facilitate the chemical reactions, made of gold and palladium. "The race to find a more efficient way to produce methanol is already 100 years old," study co-author Graham Hutchings, director of the Cardiff Institute of Catalysis, said in a statement. "Our process uses oxygen, a product that is free and that is around us, and combines it with oxygenated water at moderate temperatures that require a lower energy expenditure." The process takes place around nanoparticles of gold and palladium that float without dissolving (in the form of colloids), in a solution of hydrogen peroxide. Then, researchers simply need to inject methane under pressure and gaseous oxygen. Thanks to this it is possible to oxidize the methane and convert it into methanol. "Marketing will take time, but our method has major implications for the preservation of natural gas reserves as they decline," Hutchings explained. Scientists at Cardiff University believe they could use the surplus natural gas that is often burned in the process of extracting shale oil to produce methanol. This would reduce carbon dioxide emissions, as this waste gas would not burn, and would allow it to be converted into a liquid fuel that is easy to transport or in a new source to feed chemical synthesis routes. "The new approach we've come up with is a step closer to making the direct conversion of methane to methanol a viable option in practice," said Christopher J. Kiley, co-author of the study.

ATV Shaman: Russian mastodon 8x8 has everything you need to drive in the most severe conditions.
ATV Shaman: Russian mastodon 8x8 has everything you need to drive in the most severe conditions. The simply known as ATV Shaman is designed to be driven in the most severe conditions, both meteorological and terrain, where it even has the ability to float and move in the water. Of course, due to its capabilities, size and weight, it is not intended to be used on a city's streets, so you will not be able to walk in it when you leave the house. The Shaman ATV has dimensions of 5.7 meters long, 2 meters wide and 1.9 meters high, making it considerably larger than a Chevrolet Suburban 4X4. It has eight wheels equipped with low pressure tires, each independent in both suspension and movement. One of its strengths is that each wheel can rotate in opposite directions allowing a turning radius of just 7.6 meters. It has several driving modes like 'Crab' and 'Thruster', the latter being the one that gives it the ability to become a watercraft. While in the water, the four rear wheels are the ones that propel the vehicle forward and the four front ones give the direction, in this way also it is supported in a propeller screw that increases the speed of displacement, a additive that is sold separately . The maximum speed of the Shaman ATV on land is 70 km / h, while in the water it travels at 2 km / h or 7 km / h if we have the propeller. The lower part of the vehicle has a hermetically sealed frame that makes it able to face the water without fear, besides that it allows it to float. In case the water enters the cabin we can lean on a pump that will draw the water at a speed of up to 200 liters per minute. ATV Sherman has a 146 hp diesel engine with a tank with capacity for 261 liters, which will give us a performance of up to 650 kilometers.

LMX 161-H: is an electric motorcycle with designed  ultra-light
The lightweight LMX 161-H is an electric motorcycle styled after downhill bicycles, fusing elements from both worlds. Initially designed for extreme off-road use, the two-wheeler is now the subject of crowdfunding campaign in search of the resources required to homologate it for the street. Built in France by two young engineers, the LMX 161-H is described as an ultra-light electric freeride motorcycle. Built around an aluminum 6061 frame, it manages to cram 8 kW (10.7 hp) of power into a compact body that weighs in total just 42 kg (92.6 lb). The LMX bike is outfitted with mostly high-end mountain bike gear, such as RST Killah Coil RC front forks, a DNM RCP2 rear shock and TRP Zurich brakes with 203 mm rotors. Motorcycle parts, like the motocross-type footpegs and Domino hand controls, complete the build. Even the wheels are mixed; a 26-in downhill tire guides the front, while a 19-in motorcycle tire puts the power down at the rear through a chain and sprocket. The powertrain is an electric brushless DC motor with a Kelly controller, equipped with regenerative braking and fed by a compact 1.7 kWh (57 V / 30 Ah) Samsung battery. The combo is rated for 3 kW of continuous power, which is available by running the motor in Eco mode, but selecting the Boost mode will make a significant jump up to the peak of 8 kW. In both cases, the rider enjoys a steady 300 Nm (221.3 lb-ft) of torque, enough to tackle inclines up to 45 degrees, according to LMX.

Nobe 100: beautiful three-wheeled electric "car" with retro soul
Nobe 100: beautiful three-wheeled electric "car" with retro soul Nobe, a company that was born in Estonia with the aim of creating an electric "car" aimed at an unexploited niche: fans of classic cars and lovers of renewable energy. This is how the Nobe 100 was born, a car that besides being electric, has only three wheels and an extremely careful design that pays homage to those jewels of yesteryear. The Nobe 100 is inspired by the Fiat 500, the Saab 96 and the Messerschmitt KR175, as well as the Mercedes 300SL of the 1950s. And the first thing that comes to mind is its design that comes out of what we have today. day, betting on nostalgia but with its own personality. The tricycle design makes it not subject to the rigorous safety standards that conventional cars face. According to the company, the Nobe 100 has three-wheel drive, is able to reach a speed of up to 110 km / h and its range is 218 km. A curious aspect is that the Nobe 100 includes a removable battery pack located under the dash, whose appearance simulates an old leather suitcase that makes it in tune with the design of the car. There in the interior, we will find a thin white steering wheel and two meters: one will act as a speedometer, which includes a smaller one that will show the amps and the autonomy; while the other is a large clock. We also have two slide settings in the center of the board for temperature and fan speed. Here we must remember that we are facing a car with a retro spirit, so the windows are raised and lowered manually.

Forest city: China is building the first "forest city" of 40,000 trees to combat air pollution.
Forest city: China is building the first "forest city" of 40,000 trees to combat air pollution. The country has been leading the way in "green living" in recent years, with the government announcing that it had completed the construction of the world's largest floating solar farm. Now, in an attempt to curb the production of toxic gases, the country continues to pave the way so to speak) with the construction of one of the first forest cities in the world. Designed by Stefano Boeri, which you might remember also designed two "vertical skyscraper forests", the city is currently being built in Liuzhou, Guangxi province. Once completed, the new city will receive 30,000 people and, thanks to the abundance of trees and plants, will absorb almost 10,000 tons of CO2, 57 tons of pollutants per year and produce approximately 900 tons of oxygen per year. The city will reach these figures quite impressive thanks to approximately one million plants of more than 100 species, as well as 40,000 trees planted in facades on almost every imaginable surface. The new Liuzhou Forest City will connect to the existing Liuzhou through a series of services of fast train and electric cars; There will also be several schools and two hospitals. There are also plans to make the city self-sustainable in terms of power, thanks to geothermal and solar energy resources. #Forestcity #ForestcityChina #greenliving #verticalskyscraperforests #Abantech #LiuzhouForestcity

Cyberdyne HAL: the exoskeleton that is controlled with the mind, is finally ready to go on sale
Cyberdyne HAL: the exoskeleton that is controlled with the mind, is finally ready to go on sale It is a Japanese company that in 2011 unveiled HAL (Hybrid Assistive Limb), an exoskeleton controlled by the mind and that would help walk those patients with a spinal cord injury. Well, this company says to have the final version of their project ready and they are ready to put it on sale. The news about exoskeletons are not new, in fact on a regular basis we find developments that seek to help either patients or people who need help to move. But the idea behind HAL is quite interesting, since it is an exoskeleton that does not need to be controlled by means of joysticks or other controls, since, according to its creators, it will only be necessary to connect it to the patient's mind to an operation "as natural as possible". Cyberdyne Inc. is known for its developments in the field of medicine, where they have created robots that help in care tasks within some nursing homes. As mentioned, in 2011 they presented HAL, an exoskeleton that initially was designed to help in tasks where the use of force is a priority, but that approach changed over time to see that it could be useful in patients with spinal cord injuries. HAL fits around the legs and abdomen to provide support either to stand or walk. The advantage is that this robotic suit has electroencephalography sensors, which, according to the company, are able to capture nerve signals from the brain through the skin, which would allow the patient to move naturally without additional help. It should be noted that the company emphasizes that to use HAL it is necessary that the patient has had previous mobility and has lost it for some reason, since otherwise it will not work, because it would be necessary for the patient's brain to know in what way. consists of the process of the movement of the legs.

DARPA’s New Brain Device Increases Learning Speed by 40%
New research funded by the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) has successfully demonstrated how a non-invasive method of stimulating the brain can boost cognitive performance. Working under DARPA’s Restoring Active Memory (RAM) program, scientists from HRL Laboratories in California, McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and Soterix Medical in New York tested their brain device on macaques and observed a substantial increase in the monkeys’ ability to quickly perform certain tasks. In their study published, which has been published in the journal Current Biology, the HRL team describes how they used non-invasive transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to stimulate the prefrontal cortex in the macaques. They then prompted the animals to perform a task based on associative learning — learning associations between visual cues and a location — in order to get a reward. The macaques that wore the tDCS brain device significantly outperformed the control group. The former needed only 12 trials to learn how to immediately get the reward, while the latter needed 21 trials, with the tDCS device accounting for the 40 percent increase in learning speed, according to the researchers. “In this experiment, we targeted the prefrontal cortex with individualized non-invasive stimulation montages,” lead HRL researcher Praveen Pilly said in a statement. “That is the region that controls many executive functions, including decision-making, cognitive control, and contextual memory retrieval. It is connected to almost all the other cortical areas of the brain, and stimulating it has widespread effects.” Based on the results of their study, the researchers say the increased learning speed was caused by the modulated connectivity between brain areas and not the rate at which neurons fired.

LiFi: The new Internet connection, safer networks and dizzying speeds.
LiFi: The new Internet connection, safer networks and dizzying speeds. LiFi is the latest commercial name of an optical communications technology that has been investigating for more than 100 years and consists of transmitting data at frequencies between 400 and 800 THz. It aims to be able to transmit information with conventional lighting elements such as light bulbs and LEDs at the same time as it illuminates, or not, a room, and adding only a few cheap and easy to manufacture elements to the current bulbs. It requires a modulator in the transmitting part that will turn off and on the light source very quickly imperceptibly for the users, thus creating the zeros and binaries, and a photodiode in the reception part, for example in the mobile, tablet or laptop Which picks up the changes of light and passes them back to the electric domain. The first versions used fluorescent lamps that reached speeds of a few Kbps. Later LEDs were started, capable of being turned off and on faster, with more power, multiplying the final speeds. In 2011 Professor Harald Haas of the University of Edinburgh showed the first device he called LiFi transmitting at 10 Mbps. Later he began to speculate with speeds of up to 500 Mbps and later the Fraunhofer Institute of Berlin showed his advances indicating that they could reach 800 Mbps. Finally, the research continues with proposals that want to reach the 15 Gbps 1.88 GBps as they optimize the operation of both the sending and the receiving. #Bulbs #LiFi #wifi #Internet #IoT #tech #iphone #AbanTech #fotboltinet #Communications # MWC2017 #LiFi #LocalNetworks #evolution #technology #OpticalCommunications #LiFiNetworksSpeeds #LED #Modulator #home #connectivity #FraunhoferInstituteOfBerlin #BarcelonaCongress #HaraldBurchardt #PureLiFi #USB #LiFiXSystem #networking

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

Comcast Gigabit Internet: offering its gigabit Internet service in the Atlanta area.
Comcast Gigabit Internet: offering its gigabit Internet service in the Atlanta area with Google Fiber. Comcast is now offering its gigabit Internet service in the Atlanta area to compete with Google Fiber, but in reality, it’s unfortunately not really much competition at all. For starters, Comcast is offering the service at $70 per month, which matches the Internet-only Google Fiber package, but you must signup for a restrictive three-year contract to secure that pricing. But the hits don’t stop there if you forgo the three-year contract, you’ll pay a more princely $139.95 per month AND face monthly 300GB data caps. We hate to say it, but gigabit Internet service with a relatively low 300GB data cap (or any data cap at all for that matter) seems incredibly harsh when you’re paying $140 a month for Internet-only service. Comcast will remove that bandwidth cap if you pay an additional $35 per month. So if you don’t want to be tied down for three years, and want a really comparable service to Google Fiber, you’re looking at $175 per month, which may be a tough pill to swallow for potential customers. We should also mention that since Comcast’s gigabit Internet service is based on DOCSIS 3.1, its upload speeds are limited to just 35Mbps, whereas Google Fiber is symmetrical 1Gbps. "Our Atlanta customers will be among the first in the world to enjoy this new Gigabit technology, and we’re looking forward to learning more from these early adopters about how they take advantage of these ultra-fast speeds," said Comcast Central Division President Bill Connors. "The capabilities of DOCSIS 3.1 are incredibly exciting, and we are the first to market with a Gigabit offering that runs over our existing cable infrastructure." We should point out that Comcast considers its $70/month for 36 months package a “promotional price” that is part of a customer trial. The company goes on to state, “Once this advanced consumer trial is complete, Comcast plans to roll Gigabit service out at additional price points in other markets to gauge consumer interest in Gigabit speeds.” Let’s hope that when the gigabit service launches in additional markets that it’s priced more competitively and with fewer restrictions. #Comcast #xfinity #ComcastSucks #Florida #RETWEET #scams #scam #socialmedia #fraud #comcastcares #uverse

Australia: will build a solar farm with over 1.1 million batteries.
Australia: will build a solar farm with over 1.1 million batteries. Australia is raising its hand, and although it does not seek to compete in power generation, it will do so in storage capacity thanks to its more than 1.1 million batteries. Contrary to what many expected, this project is driven by private initiative and not by the government, which is run by Lyon Group, a company that is dedicated to the manufacture of batteries. This project has a budget of 1 billion dollars and is expected to start construction in the coming months. This farm will be located in Riverland, south of Australia, and the goal is to start operating by the end of the year. What makes this project important is that it will be the plant with the largest battery system in the world, which will be powered by 3.4 million solar panels. This will generate 330 MW of energy and store up to 100 MW, which in theory will be sufficient to supply energy to 100,000 average homes. This project comes at the same time as the Australian government is about to award a contract to manufacture a large battery, which would have a capacity of 100 MW, a project that would have a budget of 150 million dollars. However, the tender is still in progress without a definite date to announce the winning company. This is how Lyon Group has presented its project regardless of the outcome of the tender, because with this farm will be able to sell this energy to the government and obtain funding for future developments. #SolarEnergy, #Batteries #RenewableEnergy #AustraliaSolarFarm#RenewableEnergy #AbanTech #SolarPanels #Australia #Energy #project #LyonGroup #ManufactureBatteries #SolarFarm #BatterySystem #science #technology

CityHawk: the flying car you've been waiting for
The CityHawk will be capable of carrying four passengers, and will initially be flown by a human pilot. It will incorporate "a high degree of autonomy," however, with plans calling for it to conduct fully robotic flights once the necessary infrastructure is in place – the Cormorant already flies autonomously. Unlike the battery-electric Ehang 184 passenger drone, the CityHawk will at first be powered by jet fuel. That said, it will be possible to convert it to run on liquid hydrogen fuel and also 700-bar compressed hydrogen … again, this depends on waiting for the infrastructure and technology to mature. It may even employ a system in which hydrogen is fed directly into a specially-designed turboshaft engine, eliminating the need for fuel cells or electric motors. Whatever power source it ends up using, should the CityHawk conk out while in flight, a rocket-deployed parachute will bring it "safely down to the ground. "Don't go looking for one in the skies overhead just yet, though. According to Urban Aeronautics, development of the aircraft is expected to take at least five years. In the meantime, you'll have to settle for the following video of one of the Cormorant's latest test flights.

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

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

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

Samsung smart contact lenses: with built-in camera is at this point the new Samsung patent.
Samsung smart contact lenses: with built-in camera is at this point the new Samsung patent. It has come to light interesting patent That tells of a lens with built-in camera That would be developed by Samsung. This week, the patent office in South Korea will just give Samsung a patent That is called "method of manufacture and operation of smart contact lenses for augmented reality" Which Summarized is a pair of lenses That Would Have a screen, a camera, antenna and various sensors. The sensors would be responsible for detecting movement of the eye and eyelid, This would serve as an input method for activating features, for example, only take pictures flashing Could or activate the screen to see what They are related to our eyes seeing content. Although the screen of the lens would project images Directly into the eye, we need to be connected to another device That would serve as a platform for content That is transmitted to the lens, In This case a smartphone, Which would be responsible to process all the information. Interestingly this is not something new, it has-been Reported That Samsung has-been working on This project since 2014, so it Might even match the trademark "Gear Blink" presented the same year, a brand That Is Currently registered in Korea and the United States. So far it is unknown When We Could See These lenses on the market, or if it ever will see, and to remember That a patent does not guarantee That we will see a product With These características, however, is very attractive to Have a accessory Such as it would be an interesting evolution to the notion That Google filed with glass. #Samsung #SamsungSmartContactLenses #sunglasses #contacts #circlelenses##SamsungContactLenses #SmartContactLenses #contactlenses #freshlook #Halloween #eyecare #circlelens #glasses #eyes #vision

Slimbox: machine that creates perfect boxes for any product.
Slimbox: machine that creates perfect boxes for any product.   This unique printer creates the necessary pattern in a cardboard sheet that we can then cut and assemble in just a few seconds to obtain that little prodigy acartonado.La Slimbox also offers tools to measure the object and make sure that the carton we will create has the Dimensions, and there is also an option to create a reinforced box with double protection for heavier objects. The same thing happens with fragile objects that need an additional layer of protection, since the Slimbox is able to recycle the unused pieces of cardboard in the box to create a kind of padding if we do not have another material to protect the object to send . #slimbox #lastmile #ecommerce #Amazon #ecommerce #lastmile #Removals #design #design #printing #SlimboxMachine #box #protection #Carton #Accessories #machine #Tools #technology #innovation

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

Tipoon compact camper pod: grows to 3 times its size at the push of a button
Tipoon compact camper pod: grows to 3 times its size at the push of a button The French aren't the only ones building expandable camping trailers, but they do seem to do it at the highest level. A few years ago, we looked at the telescoping Beauer 3X, and last year it was the feature-packed sCarabane. Now French startup Tipoon has come up with an equally ingenious design, a compact "travel machine" that sits low and hauls gear on the ride and grows up and out at camp, providing standing headroom and space for up to four people. When you first see the Tipoon, it looks almost like an Airstream Basecamp smashed down to a lower height. You might think, you simply crawl inside and lie down, like a Japanese capsule hotel on wheels. But the Tipoon is no lying-room-only camper. It tows at roughly vehicle height, but the moment you get to camp, it expands out into a cozy tiny home. Simply hit the activation button on the remote control, and the large and small side slide-outs emerge like wings before the upper half rises over the entire base to a roof height of 8.4 feet (2.6 m). Inside, the ceiling measures in at 6.2 ft (1.9 m), meaning average-height campers will be able to stand up without crouching. The Tipoon's transformable flexibility doesn't stop when the shell is fully expanded. In the cabin, the raised bed block features a multi-use design with various slide-outs. You can slide out the 42 x 75-in (110 x 190-cm) lower bed to join the 47 x 75-in (120 x 190-cm) fixed upper bed for a four-sleeper interior. The dining table and benches also slide out of the bed block to create the dining area. Finally, you can place the cushions on the upper slide-outs to combine with the fixed upper bed into a 75 x 87-in (190 x 220-cm) oversized king. The small slide-out wall opposite the bed is occupied by a slimline kitchen area with sink, stove and worktop. Tipoon is still finalizing its options sheet but plans to offer a 50-L refrigerator and water heater options. The Tipoon's bathroom area has a shower, sink and a removable toilet stored below the sink. Interestingly, the Tipoon isn't actually a trailer but a pod that sits atop a utility trailer. Its creators recommend using a self-braking trailer with a gross vehicle weight rating of 2,425- or 2,866-lb (1,100- or 1,300-kg), with either a short or long drawbar. This way, when camping season is over, you can store the Tipoon in a garage and still have a trailer for hauling cargo. The Tipoon's length comes in at 13.5 or 14.8 ft (4.1 or 4.5 m), depending upon the size of the drawbar, and is the one measurement that is fixed and not dependent upon open/closed position. The width adjusts between 5.6 ft (1.7 m) when closed and 10.5 ft (3.2 m) when open, while the height adjusts between 5.6 and 8.4 ft (2.6 m). The trailer can also be opened partially for quick access inside, in which case the width is 8.2 ft (2.5 m) and the height is the same as fully open. In addition to the remote controlled expansion system, Tipoon includes a manual crank as backup. Tipoon describes its pod as having an insulated poly-composite monobloc shell construction with a galvanized subframe. It plans to offer the aluminum trim that appears in many of the photos as an option and will also offer other appearance customization options.

Exoskeleton Indego: robotic exoskeleton that provides mobility to people with disabilities.
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

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

CERN physicists claim that "the Universe should not exist"
One of the greatest mysteries of modern physics is to find out why antimatter did not destroy the Universe at the beginning of time. In fact, it seems clear that during the Big Bang, the great explosion from which the Universe was born in which we live, was generated as much matter as antimatter. Both are identical, but with opposite electrical charges, which means that to maintain symmetry, matter and antimatter are destroyed at the moment of contact (one minus one equals zero). However, the mere fact that we are here means that in the beginning, in some way, matter could be imposed on antimatter and give shape to everything we can see today. To explain this discrepancy, physicists assume that there must be some difference somewhere between ordinary matter and its image in the mirror (antimatter), something other than simple electric charge, and that it is so subtle that we have not yet been able to see it. That is why a team of scientists at CERN, the great European laboratory for particle physics, has carried out the most precise measurement of the magnetic moment of an antiproton (the proton antiparticle) so far, a number that measures how a particle before a magnetic force, and have found that it is exactly the same as that of the proton. Which only adds to the mystery. All our observations, "says Christian Smorra, CERN physicist in the BASE experiment (Baryon-Antibaryon Symmetry Experiment), have found complete symmetry between matter and antimatter, and that is why the Universe should not exist." However, adds the frustrated researcher, "there must be an asymmetry somewhere, but we simply can not find where the difference lies." The Standard Model of Physics predicts that the Big Bang produced the same amount of matter as antimatter, but both, being opposites, should have annihilated each other in a few moments, which would have left nothing to make galaxies, stars, planets or humans. To try to explain the mystery, physicists have been trying for decades to find the differences between matter and antimatter, some discrepancy that explains how matter, as we can see around us, was able to dominate. To this end, extremely precise measurements of all types of properties of particles and antiparticles have been carried out: mass, electric charge. One of these properties, however, the magnetic moment of the antiproton, was not known with the same precision as the others. And ten years ago, Stefan Elmer and his team from the BASE experiment set out to measure that property with unprecedented accuracy. For this, physicists had to develop completely new techniques and calculations, and to build instruments that did not yet exist. Once prepared, they first measured the magnetic moment of a proton, then do the same with an antiproton, something much more difficult, since the antiprotons were destroyed immediately when they came in contact with any kind of matter in their environment. In order to be able to do the measurements, scientists had to first produce the longest-lived antimatter particles ever created in a laboratory, something they achieved in 2015. For the first time, indeed, they were able to "store" antimatter for a whole year within a special container, a "trap" made of electric and magnetic fields. This was how they managed to measure the magnetic moment of antiprotons with a precision 350 times higher than what has been achieved so far. "Our results," says Elmer himself, "are the culmination of many years of continuous research and development, and one of the most difficult measurements ever made with this type of instrument." But in the Universe, the great game of difference continues. And failing to seek differences in the magnetic moment, hopes are now set in another experiment, ALPHA, in which scientists will study the effects of gravity on antimatter and will try to find out if they differ in anything that has on ordinary matter. If so, the great mystery will be solved once and for all. If not, we will have to keep looking for the reason why antimatter did not destroy us right after the Big Bang.

Whill: the first electric wheelchair that may be prescribed as a medical device.
Whill: the first electric wheelchair that may be prescribed as a medical device. The wheelchair has been for several years a resource widely used and versatile because it serves both for people with disabilities or reduced mobility, and patients and subjects that need to be transported from one place to another in a simple way without complications. But curiously the wheelchair has maintained its design, with slight changes but nothing radical, except for some projects that seek to make that climb stairs. Whill is a Japanese startup that developed a wheelchair based on the design and functionality of a car as the chair must be a means of transportation that a support vehicle, hence they have shown few years ago the Type-A , a device that served to get investors and boost its real project, the chair Model M, which has now received approval from the Food and Administration (FDA), which makes it the first certified as a medical device chair. The chair is driven by an electric motor that provides a maximum speed of 9 kilometers per hour, plus it is able to advance on slopes up to 10 degrees; It has two 12V 50Ah batteries which offer a range of up to 20 kilometers, which are being recharged by 80% in about eight hours. The chair supports up to 100 kilograms, has adjustable backrest and is equipped with armrests with handles that fit the size of the arms, which can be adapted to them either a joystick or touch pad species to guide the chair, The aim of Satoshi Sugie, co-founder and CEO of Whill, was to create a wheelchair that would allow a good range mobility but following medical guidelines and controls required by the FDA, so they requested the review for a couple of years and has finally been approved for sale to the public as guaranteed medical device for clinical and personal use. It should be noted that thanks to the FDA approval, the total cost of the chair can be absorbed by any insurance company in the United States. #electricwheelchair #disability #accessible #mobility # disabled #wheelchairsports #disabilityfacts

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.

Tesla makes quick work of Puerto Rico hospital solar power relief project
Tesla CEO Elon Musk noted on Twitter that Tesla’s solar team could indeed outfit Puerto Rico with power facilities that could be used to generate and store power reserves when the existing grid isn’t available, as it has been after the U.S. territory faced the devastation of hurricane Maria. Now, Tesla is showing that it’s making good on its promise of help, with significant progress being made on one solar generation/storage facility on the island. The facility in question will provide power to Children's Hospital, with a combination of solar cells and Tesla's Powerpack commercial energy storage batteries. That should mean it can not only generate power from the sun's rays in times of need, but also store up to be used to provide power around the clock and throughout varying weather conditions, even when the sun is not shining. Tesla noted on Twitter that this is just the “first of many solar+storage projects going live,” after the company discussed how it might help with Puerto Rico’s ongoing recovery efforts with PR Governor Ricardo Rossello following an exchange between the Governor and Musk on Twitter. Rossello and Puerto Rican Chief Innovation Officer Glorimar Ripoli proposed turning the territory into a flagship example of what Tesla’s solar technologies can do for the world. Tesla has also been shipping its home Powerwall battery storage units to the island for help restoring the grid, and Musk himself donated $250,000 of his personal money to support relief efforts. Tesla also postponed its electric semi truck reveal event to November in order to focus on helping establish facilities like this one in Puerto Rico.

Lit Motors C 1: electric vehicle that works like a smartphone.
Lit Motors C 1: electric vehicle that works like a smartphone. The futuristic motorcycle works like a real smartphone mobile phone on wheels, Lit Motors created a concept of a motorcycle that looks more like a two-wheeled car capable of functioning also as a smartphone with varied resources. The electric vehicle christened as C-1 will have permanent connectivity with Internet and GPS networks. The vehicle is compact and lightweight, the C-1 can travel up to 320 kilometers in a single load and can reach speeds of up to 190 kilometers per hour. A negative point in its design is the interior space that will be able to place with very little comfort just a single passenger. Although it has only two wheels and being very different from conventional motorcycles, the C-1 vehicle can be stabilized by a set of gyroscopes responsible for calculating the oscillations in real time and balancing the vehicle with the use of ballasts. You can keep it balanced when standing still. In addition to working as a car, the C-1 will also function as a smartphone with more than interesting resources. Through the connectivity to the internet via mobile networks, the driver will have access, for example, to information on traffic, weather and possible traffic problems in specific places, as well as advice on Routes using the GPS navigator. The company Lit Motors guarantees that the C-1 will be manufactured and that this one will arrive at the production #FuturisticBike #ElectricVehicle #SmartMobilePhone #motorcycle #AbanTech #technology #car #ElectricVehicleC1 #Internet #GPS #networks #vehicle #design #VehicleC1 #LitMotorsC1 #Motorcycles #ElectricMotorcycle #motorcycles

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

Google artificial intelligence: continues to revolutionize medicine.
Google artificial intelligence: continues to revolutionize medicine. Google has just demonstrated that an artificial intelligence can improve the diagnosis of doctors. And in a problem that, right now, affects more than 415 million diabetic patients at risk of becoming blind. Literally blind. In fact, diabetic retinopathy is the cause of blindness that has grown the most in the last few years. A few weeks ago, we said that you can no longer practice medicine without artificial intelligence because the volume of medical information Available makes it very difficult to keep abreast of advances in the health sciences. But not only that, we forget that even relatively controlled diseases can be a challenge in many parts of the world and that technology can play a key role. A priori, these types of diseases can be very simple to identify. The problem is that neither such basic techniques nor the training necessary to understand them are available to all doctors in the world. In the end, although in many countries such controls are performed in primary care consultations, a specialist is required who is capable of identifying microaneurysms, haemorrhages or exudates, diagnosing the severity of the disease and prescribing adequate treatment. In the case of retinopathy, an early diagnosis allows it to be treated, but if it gets late it can lead to permanent blindness. Without going any further, diabetic macular edema white dots is one of the first chronic manifestations of diabetes itself and if identified, controlling diabetes, may not generate more problems than a small lack of sharpness. In such contexts, artificial intelligence can make a difference. A couple of days ago, JAMA published an article that developed an algorithm of automatic learning capable of helping doctors to detect retinopathy very accurately. #ArtificialIntelligence #AI #AbanTech #DataScience #technology #robotics #tech #Algorithm #Blind #Medicine #Health #Science #Technology #GoogleArtificialIntelligence #Diagnosis #Diabetic #Retinopathy #Diseases #Microaneurysms #Hemorrhages #Exudates #Early #Diagnosis #Retinopathy #Ophthalmologists #diabetes #blindness
