      Brain Computer Interface

      A brain computer interface (BCI) is an external devices that communicate directly to the brain of humans or animals through neuron silicon interfaces. These external devices can either transmit or receive signals to and from the brain which can then be used to restore function or movement to sensory organs or limbs. Furthermore, these external

    • Rheometer

      Rheometer

      A rheometer is a device that was developed to measure how a liquid’s suspensions or slurries flow when force is applied to it. Many fluids can be tested with a rheometer when a single numerical viscosity value cannot determine them due to their components. A rheometer can also be used to discover the additional parameters

    • Liquid Armor

      Liquid Armor

      Liquid armor is a new development in the body armor field. It is a material that makes lightweight, flexible and tough body armors possible. Body Armor Body armor is a protective clothing designed to stop bullets or bomb fragments and shrapnel from penetrating the human body. They are descended from leather or metal armor designed

    • U.S. Drones

      U.S. Drones

      The U.S. drone program has seen significant press since the first Gulf War when the defenders of Faylaka Island surrendered to the Pioneer drone, or Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), flying spotting services for the USS Wisconsin (BB 64). Since that time, the technology powering U.S. drones has steadily improved now allowing the MQ-1B Predator and

    • How Fast Does the Earth Spin?

      How Fast Does the Earth Spin?

      One of the basic questions regarding the earth is, how fast does it spin? The earth is constantly spinning; it spins around its axis. An axis in this case is an imaginary line running through the center of the earth from the North Pole to the South Pole. To calculate how fast the earth spins,

    • Hydronic Air Handlers

      Hydronic Air Handlers

      Hydronic air handlers have become a popular installation for home owners who build a new home or are replacing the HVAC system in an existing one. A hydronic air handler is significantly more fuel efficient, runs quieter, and produces more comfortable heating than a traditional furnace. It does this by providing uniformly heated air, thereby

    • What is an Ultrasonic Pest Repeller?

      What is an Ultrasonic Pest Repeller?

      An Ultrasonic Pest Repeller is an electronic device that uses ultrasonic sound waves to repel insects, rodents, and other pests. Though humans are incapable of hearing these sounds, many animals, insects, and rodents can. There is much debate concerning the ultrasonic pest repeller’s ability to actually get rid of pests. While some people claim that

    • Zettabyte

      Zettabyte

      A zettabyte describes a unit of data or information that is equal to 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes. The term is equal to a billion terabytes and the symbol ZB represents it. Zebibyte (ZiB) describes a measurement of data using the power of 1024. A single zettabyte is equivalent to 1,024 exabytes and is used prior to the

    • How Does an Ultrasonic Nebulizer Work?

      How Does an Ultrasonic Nebulizer Work?

      An ultrasonic nebulizer is a small, portable device that uses ultrasonic sound waves to break liquid particles down into a fog so that they can be inhaled easily. Patients who have asthma, COPD, pneumonia, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or other chronic conditions, most often use them for medicinal purposes. While other devices can deliver the medicine

    • Linear Actuator

      Linear Actuator

      A linear actuator is a mechanical device that makes a linear motion, usually via a hydraulic pump or electromagnetic gear. Other forces can be used to create linear motion. The different types of linear actuators include screw, wheel and axle, cam, hydraulic pump, pneumatic, piezoelectric, and electro-mechanical. Linear motors, wax motors, and telescoping linear actuators
