  • Why not use electromagnets in place of motors in performance driven EVs
    by /u/cool_jazzz on October 1, 2022 at 10:53 am

    People are always complaining about EVs not having the character and feel of an IC engine. Well to solve it can’t there be an arrangement for an engine block with pistons and crankshaft. Piston heads are set with permanent magnets say for example with the positive pole facing upwards and the cylinder head is an electromagnet connected to a relay to convert the polarity, now just like an IC engine’s working but instead of working on combustion it works on the normal repelling and attracting forces of magnets. To get the car going (say if the arrangement is as of inline 6 engine) 3 of the alternate pistons are repelled by turning on the electromagnets which sends them down making the crankshaft rotate and the remaining 3 are attracted upwards towards the cylinder head(electromagnet). If not more efficient than a motor at least it should be as efficient as a motor because the coil of the motor needs a continuous supply of current but here you need that just for a fraction of a second. submitted by /u/cool_jazzz [link] [comments]

  • What Is Innovation Strategy?
    by Josh Noorily on September 30, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Innovating doesn’t just happen when inspiration strikes. In order to ensure forward progress, a business has to create a structure that stimulates innovation regularly. This structure will determine the rate and efficacy of overall innovation and is commonly known as an innovation strategy. This article will define innovation strategy, discuss how to create one, […] The post What Is Innovation Strategy? appeared first on InnovationManagement.

They promise to free up human soldiers for more critical tasks. Where each truck in a supply convoy had to have several driving crews, a convoy of autonomous ones may need only one crewed vehicle. In addition, such robotic conveyances can be self-deploying, which frees up human soldiers. The goal is to produce autonomous vehicles that can act as part of combat teams, which means they have to be able to drive as fast and turn as nimbly while negotiating rugged terrain as ones driven by humans. https://www.darpa.mil/news-events/2022-09-16 ​ Imperial College London and Empa https://preview.redd.it/lfbvciy400r91.jpg?width=780&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=2a0fe6510aeea34c28ecd7e1907859ad9f9480e6 Structures built by swarms of flying drones. Researchers in Switzerland and the UK have developed flying 3D printing robots that can build structures while flying as bees and wasps do. They say the technology could be used to erect or repair buildings in difficult spots like disaster zones or in the upper reaches of skyscrapers. The drones cooperate to deposit layers of material guided by a digital design, adapting their movements as they go. They are fully autonomous while flying but are monitored by a human controller. https://www.imperial.ac.uk/news/239973/3d-printing-drones-work-like-bees/ ​ Penn State University and U.S. Air Force https://preview.redd.it/vqyr0j0400r91.jpg?width=1024&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=4f5b9a7bc4666b45e810e22b542bb5cb99ce1d22 A novel material that can think and sense. Engineers have created a soft material that acts like a brain, simultaneously sensing, thinking, and acting upon mechanical stress. The discovery revealed the opportunity for nearly any material around us to act like its own integrated circuit: being able to ‘think’ about what’s happening around it. This could make things around us optimize and adjust in real-time. The research team is now trying to process visual information as it does with physical signals. https://www.psu.edu/news/engineering/story/researchers-engineer-novel-material-capable-thinking/#:~:text=Penn%20State%20engineers%2C%20in%20collaboration,circuits%20to%20process%20these%20signals. ​ Saildrone https://preview.redd.it/5ih1gy6200r91.png?width=1038&format=png&auto=webp&s=d7a3cf81eaf81cbb0662d210323384ecaa968bd2 https://preview.redd.it/g7hij0m700r91.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c8192b7208781d87c97d75b261a5385a17420367 Incredible video from inside Category 4 Hurricane Fiona. Saildrone, a California-based company released video footage gathered by their uncrewed surface vehicle from inside hurricane Fiona. The ocean drone battled 50-foot waves and winds measuring over 100 mph to collect critical scientific data. At one moment, it reached a peak speed of 40 mph while surfing down a massive wave. It is one of seven hurricane sail drones deployed in the Atlantic Ocean to gather data that will help forecasters better understand the physical processes of hurricanes and give people living in the coastal communities more time to prepare. https://www.saildrone.com/ ​ Innovafeed https://preview.redd.it/17hq9pda00r91.jpg?width=3928&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8bb29bc3b91d5618ee01224a0dad32fbe2c4981c https://preview.redd.it/yujeb35b00r91.jpg?width=1350&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=eaae2698fa37384414a4adc842a62f3977232178 InnovaFeed is a vertical insect farm company that harnesses insects to create nutrients for animals, including fish, poultry, and pet food. They also create organic fertilizers out of insect poop. They actually run two farms and plan on expanding into the U.S with a new production in Illinois. InnovaFeed isn’t alone in its endeavor to use insects for animal protein. Another notable player in the space is Better Origin, a UK-based company that is all about transforming food waste into insect feed. This could replace the cultivation of soybean or even other animals being grown just to feed bigger ones. https://innovafeed.com/en/ ​ Instacart https://preview.redd.it/g0wkvvxb00r91.jpg?width=2400&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=2c4f49cb31afc89176a5c4757434f701b8c8bb0f Instacart recently bought Caper, a company making a smart cart that can detect what items are placed in it based on computer vision and weight. It has a touchscreen and an attached payment terminal. This sort of goes against Instacart’s delivery service goal: to remove the inconvenience of needing to go to the grocery store yourself. But as the pandemic wanes, demand for online delivery services is dropping and hurting companies like Instacart, Uber, and DoorDash. That’s what Instacart has been working on: building a white label smart shopping ecosystem that it claims can give any store a digital storefront. But also improve customer experience that can easily skip the lines. https://www.caper.ai/ ​ Oregon State University & Agility Robotics https://preview.redd.it/v1l2ct8d00r91.jpg?width=420&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a72505d3d27669e89bd3b1746e62b81af0b0fba1 Running robot achieves Guinness World Record in the 100-meter dash. The bipedal droid, who goes by “Cassie”, was created by Agility Robotics at Oregon State University. It just ran the fastest 100 meters by a bipedal robot. It operated with no cameras or external sensors, meaning Cassie ran blindly. While paling in comparison to a Usain Bolt, who holds the human world record at 9.58 seconds, Cassie’s time of 24 seconds is impressive considering it’s the first robot to use machine learning to control it. https://agilityrobotics.com/ submitted by /u/Dalembert [link] [comments]

  • An online platform for sharing creative ideas
    by /u/Gustavo-Manaka on September 26, 2022 at 2:57 pm

    Hey guys, I made a website that I think you might be interested in. Human inventions are the product of a series of ideas turned concrete thanks to human labor, expertise and technology. While many people can be involved in their implementation, the ideas themselves usually come from only a few individuals. This is a pity because the invention will eventually be constrained by the creative capacity of these individuals. I believe we see this everywhere. Most human inventions (businesses, movies, policies, etc.) are not very innovative, they seem to take a lot of inspiration from something already existing. The problem lies in the small set of people involved in the creative process. Because every human being is creative by nature (to different degrees), brainstorming with ten people instead of five will, on average, yield more good ideas. This is the reasoning that led me to create a website: ideaseeds.co. It is meant to be a platform for sharing creative ideas, so that innovators can rely on a whole community’s creative potential. My hope is that IdeaSeeds will become a freely available library of ideas that people can use in their lives. Please let me know what you think. Thank you! submitted by /u/Gustavo-Manaka [link] [comments]

This company has created a new construction technique that involves inflating buildings, then pumping concrete into them. A rolled-up PVC fabric form is laid in place, and air pumps are used to inflate it. Wet concrete is pumped into the form, resulting in a solid concrete building shell. The buildings go up quickly and cost $20 per square foot. This could also be used for rapid-deploy military structures and perhaps even one day skyscrapers, or structures on Mars for use by astronauts. https://automatic-construction.com/ ​ Bridgestone https://preview.redd.it/pgdoywu93mp91.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=6b06db12557abf522430c4b393f569a79414fe2a A New type of tire made from a Mexican plant. To make tire production more sustainable, Bridgestone is turning to a desert shrub called guayule as a source of natural rubber. Native to northern Mexico and the southwestern United States, guayule is a heat-tolerant source of natural rubber that can be used to make tires. Natural rubber can be extracted from guayule’s branches and roots. All the rubbers made today are made with synthetic rubber that originates from oil. The company aims to make tires from 100% renewable materials by 2050. https://www.bridgestone.com/technology_innovation/natural_rubber/ ​ Lockheed Martin https://preview.redd.it/qrhmf7c93mp91.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=470836ff1ad96edbbdcc39514ce14759a7be22de A 300-kilowatt laser weapon. Lockheed Martin has just delivered its most powerful laser to date to the US military. Laser weapons are rapidly evolving from a promising concept to practical battlefield weapons. Each of these subsystems includes power units, laser generators, beam combiners, targeting systems, and more. This will be used to protect military personnel and installations from aerial threats, including short-range air defense, and against drones, rockets, mortar, and artillery. https://www.lockheedmartin.com/en-us/capabilities/directed-energy/laser-weapon-systems.html ​ Anton Guzhov, Anton Brousseau & André Taylforth https://preview.redd.it/xqvkadp83mp91.jpg?width=818&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=2fca0269c6ee939620b4139a50b3f75a383dc884 A super futuristic bike. A trio of Designers recently created ‘Hydra,’ a concept e-bike. While traditional electric motorcycles run on lithium-ion batteries, this hypothetical ride is powered by hydrogen fuel cells, meaning it emits heat and water instead of fumes. The motorcycle is heavenly influenced by cyberpunk aesthetics with its robot-inspired structure and bulky shell coated in carbon fiber. What particularly stands out is the boxy front where the hydrogen fuel cells are stored. But it remains to be seen whether this zero-emission bike can expand into a sellable product. ​ WZMH Architects https://preview.redd.it/xkfs2od73mp91.jpg?width=960&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=51dbe19dec6c1b7a7d2cc3c7ef022abf5c2632df Saving war-damaged buildings. An architect company developed a prefabricated-modular system for restoring thousands of buildings across Ukraine that have been partially or fully destroyed during the war. This system aims to integrate modular block, that works like lego, into destroyed buildings. The modular blocks are fabricated off-site and installed with a minimal workforce. The newly added parts are 100% complete once ‘plugged’, as mechanical, electrical, and IT systems are already integrated. https://www.wzmh.com/ ​ Colorado Teardrops https://preview.redd.it/2ay4um763mp91.png?width=961&format=png&auto=webp&s=a0d1006adb5f56b3eec152b2c47811bc30121a2c A trailer for electric car owners. This company created the world’s first camper trailer designed to extend the towing range of electric vehicles. While an electric vehicle might work perfectly fine for the vast majority of the year, the annual weeklong camping trip can be a deal-breaker. Some EV owners noticed a range cut in half while towing. With about 75 kwh of batteries mounted in its lower frame area the trailer is effectively carrying an extra battery pack along. https://coloradoteardrops.com/ submitted by /u/Dalembert [link] [comments]

  • Simple Game to Teach Innovation?
    by /u/Gef_1_Man_Army on September 17, 2022 at 2:20 pm

    I’m looking for a simple game (either electronic or mechanical) that can be displayed and interacted with on a wall to help teach people about the power of radical innovation and outside-the-box thinking. The idea is that when you first try the game you die very quickly/get a low score and when you continue to play it more times you gradually improve. But after a while there should be a realisation of a radical strategy that allows you to get a much higher score/survive way longer. Does anyone know a game like this or have any suggestions? submitted by /u/Gef_1_Man_Army [link] [comments]

It claims to be revolutionizing an industry plagued by colossal waste. They do so by compressing the coffee balls into a tasteless, colorless, seaweed-based layer that gives the coffee structure and protects it from flavor loss. https://www.migros.ch/en/content/coffeeb ​ University of Maryland https://preview.redd.it/x7azexmhv8o91.jpg?width=800&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=fd4aeffedc4b909bcc52e747f46f1556897c57b1 Chitin is a building material that strengthens the exoskeletons of crustaceans and insects. Over the years, scientists have mined chitin from crustacean shells for everything from tissue engineering to making biodegradable plastic. Engineers at the University of Maryland found a way to make zinc-based batteries more durable by incorporating chitosan a Chitin derivative.

The current iteration is a 25’x8′ wall with 25 axes. It makes it a great option for urban environments where space is limited. One of these walls should be enough to provide 10,000 kilowatts of electricity per year, enough to cover the needs of an average household. The inventor’s vision is to use larger-scale wind turbine walls on the side of buildings and along highways. It is easy to build a wind turbine wall on a larger scale.
