In an extraordinary fusing of textiles and robotics, the Flutter functional garment was design to aid individuals with hearing impairments “feel” the sounds of the world around them. Within the cotton and polyester dress lies an inner framework of microphones and vibrating leaflets that detect the direction of sound. Leaflets nearest the sound are triggered to flutter in that direction, giving the wearer an alternative sensory awareness of their surroundings.

It seems there are more reports of earthquakes lately and that is some scary news. That's why the Emergency Door for Earthquake by Sung Young Um is a fabulous idea. The door collapses from the center forming a tent where you can crawl into and remain safe until the emergency subsides.

Love the simplicity of this door, which provides an emergency shelter during an earthquake. It collapses from the center to form a reinforced tent, under which you can huddle till the shockwaves subside. This door can be any door in the house and office. And if for a moment we keep aesthetics aside, just imagine how many people it can end up benefitting. Love it! 0 Designer: Sung Young Um

This Tower Can Save Lives. People in sub-Saharan Africa spend roughly 40 billion hours per year collecting water, and what they do find is often unsafe to drink. In some parts of Africa, finding potable water can be a six-hour endeavor. Roughly 3.4 million people die every year from water-related disease. WarkaWater is an inexpensive, easily-assembled structure that extracts gallons of fresh water from the air. Click through

Italian designer Arturo Vittori has unveiled the WarkaWater Tower, a revoluntionary new way to collect clean drinking water in Ethiopia and other parts of Africa from condensation in the air. The artist was inspired by a recent trip to a remote village in northeastern Ethiopia where water collection is often a dangerous and incredibly time-consuming process. http://calgary.isgreen.ca/
Warka Water towers are designed to take advantage of condensation by pulling Drinking Water Out of Thin Air Designer Arturo Vittori says his invention can provide remote villages with more than 25 gallons of clean drinking water per day. It costs about $500 to set up a tower & If the tower is mass produced, the price would be even lower. His team hopes to install two Warka Towers in Ethiopia by next year.

A solar grill that generates cooking temperatures of 450 F, and up to 25 hours of straight cooking time without any energy but the sun. It stores latent heat using a Fresnel lens to harness the sun’s energy to melt a container of Lithium Nitrate, which acts as a battery, storing thermal energy for 25 hours at a time. The heat is then released as convection for outdoor cooking. The lens allows light to enter, but once the light has turned into heat, the barrier traps the heat inside the grill.

#Quality1stHome #Solar #Power Wilson Solar Grill Stores the Sun’s Energy for Nighttime Fuel-Free Grilling - i want one
The Wilson Solar Grill is a proposed design reportedly being developed by MIT professor David Wilson with the help of MIT graduate students from differing disciplines in the Fall 2012. This grill is planned to collect thermal energy from the sun and store it to allow cooking times for up to twenty-five hours at temperatures above 450 degrees Fahrenheit. The study is being conducted by Derek Ham, Eric Uva, and Theodora Vardouli, all part of an entrepreneurship course called “iTeams.” I-Teams, (short for “Innovation Teams”) is a unique MIT course that assembles cross-disciplinary teams of students from across MIT. The goal of i-Teams is to teach students the process of science and technology commercialization focusing on how to judge a technology’s commercial potential. Each team has access to faculty, practitioners, business mentors, and fellow students throughout their project. “There are a lot of solar cookers out there,” says Wilson, “but surprisingly not many using latent-heat storage as an attribute to cook the food.” Wilson’s technology uses a Fresnel lens to harness the sun’s energy to melt down a container of Lithium Nitrate. The Lithium Nitrate serves as a solar battery. Due to its phase change reaction, the thermal energy is able to be stored at longer periods of time and at higher temperatures. Heat is then redistributed through convection, which allows for outdoor cooking. The students are currently taking a market survey on this technology via Survey Monkey. You can visit and take their survey at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GPNRXNJ While the goal of creating a solar grill with the latent heat storage capacity they are projecting is fascinating, the grill is still a ways from becoming a production reality. This is probably also not a solution for subsidized solar cooking programs aimed at developing countries due to the likely high manufacturing expense. If the grill makes it to production, there may well be a substantial market in more developed countries.
decellularized "Ghost" Heart The cells are removed by a chemical process, leaving only Extracellular matrix, so the new cells of the transplantee, which match the DNA, can be grown on this heart, so the rejection of the organ doesn't happen. It's still in the experimental stage, but it is promising.

I’ve seen this photograph very frequently on tumblr and Facebook, always with the simple caption, “Ghost Heart”. What exactly is a ghost heart? More than 3,200 people are on the waiting list for a heart transplant in the United States. Some won’t survive the wait. Last year, 340 died before a new heart was found. The solution: Take a pig heart, soak it in an ingredient commonly found in shampoo and wash away the cells until you’re left with a protein scaffold that is to a heart what two-by-four framing is to a house. Then inject that ghost heart, as it’s called, with hundreds of millions of blood or bone-marrow stem cells from a person who needs a heart transplant, place it in a bioreactor - a box with artificial lungs and tubes that pump oxygen and blood into it - and wait as the ghost heart begins to mature into a new, beating human heart. Doris Taylor, director of regenerative medicine research at the Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital in Houston, has been working on this– first using rat hearts, then pig hearts and human hearts - for years. The process is called decellularization and it is a tissue engineering technique designed to strip out the cells from a donor organ, leaving nothing but connective tissue that used to hold the cells in place. This scaffold of connective tissue - called a “ghost organ” for its pale and almost translucent appearance - can then be reseeded with a patient’s own cells, with the goal of regenerating an organ that can be transplanted into the patient without fear of tissue rejection. This ghost heart is ready to be injected with a transplant recipient’s stem cells so a new heart - one that won’t be rejected - can be grown.
Take a close-up look at a decellularized “ghost heart.” This heart can serve as a scaffold upon which to grow a working heart from human stem cells. Researchers at the Texas Heart Institute created it by stripping all the living cells from a pig heart with a soap solution, which bursts the cells and leaves only the protein structure behind. These scientists have successfully implanted tissue-engineered hearts into rats and pigs so far. Goal: relieve the shortage of donor organs.

TRUE SOLAR-POWERED WATER PURIFIER: the Eliodomestico works like an upside-down coffee percolator 2 desalinate salt water. It has 3 main pieces. The top black container is where the salt water is poured. As the sun heats the salt water and creates steam, the pressure that builds pushes the steam through a pipe in the middle section. The steam condenses against the lid of the basin at the bottom and then drips into the basin, where it is collected. Also, this thing only costs 50 dollars to build.
solar powered water filter
While ways to desalinize it exist, they mostly require a lot of energy and money. As Fast Company reports, “power plants and hundreds of millions of dollars are needed to run larger desalination plants.” But a new clay pot called Eliodomestico could change all that. Designed by Milan-based freelance industrial designer Gabriele Diamanti, Eliodomestico is a clay pot topped with a black metal basin. Diamanti’s site says that it purifies the water “like an upside down coffee maker.
