The timer that controls how long you keep the tap open

December 9, 2014

Many of us forget the water tap open for far longer than necessary, in what is the most common way to waste water. Today’s idea is called Water & Time, and is an effective invention to help us save water by controlling how long we keep the tap open.

The idea is a very simple timer that is placed on the tap, we set the amount of time we wish to keep the tap open and when the time runs out, the tap will close automatically.

A drone for maritime rescue operations

November 18, 2014

Among the many, many uses we are discovering for drones, today we bring you one of our favorites: the smart lifesaver drone, Pars.

Pars is a quadcopter maritime rescue drone that can arrive more quickly to aid people who need assistance in the water. It can also reach areas with difficult access, where traditional rescue operations might be close to impossible.

The drone is piloted remotely from shore or a boat. It can carry up to three lifesavers and detects people in water at night thanks to its thermal imaging camera. Its route is plotted with a GPS device so that it can retrace its path back to its point of origin.

Now we just need to see it in beaches around the world. Its creators, Iranian laboratories RTS Labs, are looking for funding.

Watch the video to see all its potential.

Two original protectors for cooks

October 28, 2014

The person who had this idea probably cut his or her fingers with a knife more than once.

The first idea is a simple but useful cutting protector that covers your fingers when you are using a knife and sets the size of the pieces of food you are cutting.

The second idea, Quirky Glide, is the perfect way to clean all remaining bits of food off your knife.

Safe fingers for all you cooks out there!

Transparent solar panels to replace glass

October 22, 2014

Researchers in Michigan State University have developed a solar collector that is completely transparent, so much so that it could become a perfect replacement for the traditional glass we use in so many appliances: windows, building roofs, gadget screens, etc.

While traditional photovoltaic modules, commonly known as solar panels, are made up of a group of photovoltaic cells that produce electricity from light in direct contact with them, this new system uses microscopic, organic molecules that absorb specific light wavelengths that are invisible to the human eye. The photovoltaic solar cells are placed on the ends of these transparent collectors, which is where light captured is transformed into electricity that we can use.

This innovative development is a great step forward that could change the way we obtain solar power, helping us to make the most of this energy source on almost any surface.

Three innovative ideas for your car

October 9, 2014

A programmable heater for the car that allows you to increase the temperature and defrost the windshield before you step in the car.

It works with a rechargeable battery and can be programmed to activate up to 20 minutes before you enter the car, thanks to a remote controller.

Pioneer Corporation has presented NavGate, an augmented reality GPS that is projected onto the windshield and measures approx. 70cm, allowing drivers to follow navigation indications more comfortably.

A portable tire pump – simple and useful, it will mean not having to stop at the service station to pump your tires. At some point in time, we’ve all wanted to have one of these in the car.
