Warmth of Human Bodies Waiting Below Ground for Paris Metro Will Heat New Apartment Complex

Leave it to the French to do something that's undeniably awesome yet leaves us feeling somewhat uncomfortable at the same time. An experimental heating system, being installed in a public housing project in Paris, will use the warmth generated by human bodies in a nearby Metro station to heat the building.

Switch' liquid cooled LED light bulbs, here in equivalent, combine analog and digital technology to offer a new lighting solution, providing the same quality of light as Ordinary incandescents but with highly increased energy efficiency and recyclability.

SWITCH60 Review: The First Liquid-Cooled LED Bulb Will Light Up Your House Like Edison

The ice cream cone-shaped fluorescent light bulb was supposed to be the lamp of the future, producing just as much light as the century-old Edison incandescent at a fraction of the energy. But CFLs look terrible, enveloping rooms in an unfriendly bluish hue. LED lamps are the next future of lighting, but they have their own obstacles to overcome, including sensitive electronics that can burn out when they get warm. SWITCH, the first liquid-cooled light bulb, aims to solve that issue and…

This new method could help researchers to design better lithium-air batteries with potentially enhanced round-trip efficiency (energy retention between charge and discharge) and cycle life (the ability to charge and discharge a battery many times).

New startup uses robot to reposition solar panels (w/ Video)

(Phys.org)—As prices for solar panels continue to fall, those looking to make money selling large arrays have increasingly been turning their attention to the physical infrastructure that supports the panels. To keep the panels pointing at the sun, engineers typically install motors, gears and electronic controllers on each one, all of which tend to cost a lot of money. Buyers on the other hand must make decisions on whether to install arrays with no moving capabilities or to choose from…

Israeli designer, Izhar Gafni cycles as a hobby. While buying parts for his bike, he heard about someone who had built a canoe out of cardboard. At that was it. The idea was in his head.

MIT’s New Battery-Free Chip Captures Energy From Light, Heat And Vibrations at the Same Time by Timon Singh, Clean Technology, Science And Technology, Energy Harvesting, Heat Energy, Geothermal Energy, Gadgets, Eco Architecture, Simple Minds, Power Generator

MIT Energy Scavenger Harvests Power from Light, Vibrations, and Heat

Small power generators that can harvest energy from ambient sources like heat, vibrations, and light hold a lot of promise across a range of applications, particularly in things like remote monitoring. They can harvest the vibrations imparted by vehicles passing over a bridge to power sensors that monitor the bridge's structural integrity, for instance, or keep a network of wildfire-detecting sensors working in the remote wilderness, no batteries necessary.
