Gigafactory: A Dream Come True for Many

The future is here now, with a lithium-ion battery factory being constructed in the deserts of Nevada. This is an electric revolution which is like a dream come true for Elon Musk. This creation of electric cars is much needed and Gigfaactory is worth the hype it has received in the recent years. The true name of this factory is Tesla Gigafactory, it is a $5 billion factory of stupendous proportions. This is going to be the largest building in the world after its completion in 2020. Under construction in an area of 5.8 million square feet, the entire concept blows me away every time I read about it. Musk has already unveiled a Tesla Model 3 car costing around $35,000 and it received more than 325,000 pre-orders already. The car is yet to be out for sale but the demand of the customers has raised the pressure amongst the producers and they are currently hoping to produce half a million cars per year. These cars use electric batteries which are charged by various charging stations developed by Tesla. However, Tesla is also up for producing electric trucks and buses too.   Why Gigafactory? During the unveiling of the product, Elon was asked questions such as how will they manage to produce batteries as per the demand? Well, this is the time when the Gigafactory will help. This factory has the power to double the world’s production of lithium ion batteries. These batteries would produce 35GWh of power which would probably be higher as 150GWh. Musk also revealed that they are planning to construct these Gigafactories in countries between Europe to China. This is an automotive revolution and is going to make Tesla a worldwide phenomenon. Current Scenario: Currently, only 20 percent of the Gigafactory is accomplished with parts such as the building site and assembling section ready for use. The entire setup will be 100 percent sustainable as it would be running on solar power, thus making it environment-friendly. The Gigafactory has more than 1000 people working round the clock to make the project a success. The very first battery from the factory is expected to be out by next year. This place is going to be a revolution for the future where most of the work is done by autonomous machines and humans just keep an eye on the happenings and check whether the machines are responding well or not. You will be delighted to hear that the Gigafactory is already two years ahead of its schedule and is going to start making serious money very soon. The project was started back in 2014 and has been...

Myth Buster about the iPhone 8 is for all the Apple Addicts there

The most interesting chit-chat topic for all the Steve Job’s fan these days might be the release and features of the most awaited iPhone 8. Well, there is no denying the fact this phone is going to be the next big thing in the world of smartphones. Apple has never let us down. But the biggest buzz is the launch of the phone on the. The 10th anniversary of the launch of original iPhone. There is a prodigious number of rumors stating that the on the launch in around September, this phone will have impressive features such as wireless charging, fingerprint scanning and face detection abilities. However, many rumors are there across the world, here are some of the most interesting ones:  Design: Looks of a phone are the most talked about topic before its launch. As per the rumors, this phone will be a tribute to the iPhone 4 and somehow resemble it. It will have glass panels on the front and the back will have polished stainless steel in the mild frame. It will use top notch 2.5D glass which will merge with the mid frame on both the ends. It has also been said that it will come in two sizes 5 and 5.8 inches with edge-to-edge OLED displays. Facial Recognition: This has been hinted through a patent filed by Apple to bring facial recognition camera in the next iPhone. As per the studies, Apple has been testing the 3D face recognition system for a while and this new phone will be powered by a brand new 3D sensor which will even work when the phone is kept on the table and will not always require a close up of the face. The main idea behind this concept is to replace the touch ID fingerprint scanner which is there in the pre-existing phones. Expensive: The current cost of an iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus is between $649 and $969 for the high-end models.

A Battery Powered by Human Spit: Here is all you should know about this Advent of Technology

The technological advancements have already astonished a range of people from all walks of life. It is a virtue that has brought the worlds closer and has helped solve some of the major challenges of the people across the nations. These advancements are ever-growing and have now reached to the next level with inventions such as a battery which is activated by a very easily available resource which is beyond the imagination of a common man; human saliva. Yes, you read it right human spit can power these batteries developed by the researchers from the Binghamton University, New York. Isn’t it incredible?  Let’s know more about these batteries which are powered from human spit The Basic Idea behind the Startling Concept The researchers had been working on micro-power generation when they generated this concept of a paper-based bacteria powered battery which can be activated by just one drop of saliva and produce as much energy to power an LED light for 20 minutes. This notion is best suitable to be used in extreme conditions where normal batteries fail to work. Furthermore, this technology can be used for the application which calls for the hint of microwatt-level power for several minutes and the commercial batteries or other energy reaping technologies prove to be expensive and a threat to the environment.   A Sneak Peak to its Working The battery is made up specially designed bacterial cells known as exoelectrogens, which possess the capability to produce electrons externally to the outside electrode. These bacterial cells are freeze-dried to make able for long term storage and can be used in challenging situations where you just need your spit to rehydrate it and trigger the freeze-dried cells.  The saliva serves as a stimulator for the exoelectrogens, which initiates within minutes of spitting and churns out power used by the battery.   The Wonder Materials Behind the Make of the Batteries To add a cherry to the top, this battery is extremely environment-friendly and has a long shelf life. Moreover, it does not require any high-tech or expensive materials to be made up. It merely includes paper, carbon and printing wax and can be disposed of easily as compared to the expensive conventional batteries which are hard to be scraped due to the materials used. Likewise, this gadget can be of huge help in powering the medical devices and can be used to influence the pregnancy tests as well as HIV tests and other glucose sensors. However, it can be an enormous help to the developing countries where buying conventional batteries is not possible by some due to the costs associated with it. The...
