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...

Future Food Deliveries : DoorDash Starship Robot Food Delivery in Redwood

Hey folks I’m starving, DoorDash comes up with a Starship Robot for food deliveries in Redwood City, California. Guess we born in best time because of technologies type writers to pamtops to cellphones, apps, electric cars like tesla in our age, moreover now people think to spend some years of life to red planet. Anyways, let heading towards main topic. Starship Robot speeds up to 10 mph, but is limited to 4 mph for safety. Once DoorDash delivery is placed, that little robot car navigates to restaurant where DoorDash handler puts the food inside, for protection 6 wheel car would be open by the recipient. Furthermore, for more protection Starship Robot have 9 camers, GPS, ultrasonic sensors obstacles detection for and alert...

Google Wind: Google all set to control the weather in Netherlands, Incredible!

Whenever we talk about Google concepts we are always curious to know about now what they did and our mind always thinks one step further like has done something completely unbelievable and extraordinary. This time they control the weather, without any cause to the environment. Google Mill is the latest concept which is announced by Google. By using Google Mill, they will change the routes of winds, keep a tab on rainfall and control the weather in the Netherlands.     As, the Netherlands is one of the best countries to live in, but the major problem is that it rains 145 days a year. That’s why the Google Cloud Platform team in the Netherlands is launching Google Wind this Spring. The Google Platform team upgraded some historical windmills and all controls are linked to the Google Cloud Platform and Google Wind then uses machine learning to identify cloud patterns and arrange the network of windmills when rain is approaching.

Google & Levi’s Commuter Smart Jacket

Google with Levi’s is ready to take IoT to the next level: Smart Commuter Jackets Today at Google’s I/O conference, Google’s ATAP (Advanced Technology and Projects) research unit announced an update on its upcoming interactive fabric or textiles product. Almost two years ago, Google and Levi’s announced that they would be come together in the market to introduce smart clothing. Smart clothing which enables the wearer to send instructions to their smartphones like answer call.   What technology is used? Last year, first announcement of Google’s partnership with Levi’s in the news. But these two companies hadn’t  yet divulge how the manufacturer of clothing would implement Project Jacquard’s technology. They use Google’s Jacquard technology to transform the jacket’s fabric into what’s basically a canvas that’s get instructions by body gestures. What is the use of this jacket? Google with Levi’s manufacture this Levi’s Commuter Trucker Jacket aimed at urban cyclists  and bike commuters that will allow wearers to do following things,       answer their phone calls.       control their music.       access navigation and more. This jacket looks very similar in terms of looks to other Levi’s commuter coats or jackets. The only different feature of this Commuter jacket is a small, screen less fabric touch interface of the left wrist. All these functionalities will be control by tapping and swiping on the jacket’s sleeve. Different Gestures: The touch interface on this jacket can recognize five gestures: Brushing Out Brushing In, Double Tapping, Full Palming, and making a Circular Motion. This commuter jacket will come with mobile application, in which users can set control of jacket with each gesture,such as stopping and starting music, checking the time, receiving directions, dismissing or accepting phone calls, and learning about new texts. How do we wash it? Now, we are thinking. If it is electronic jacket, how do we wash it? According ot Ars Technic, the tecnology that enables its smart capabilities is found in a removeable USB drive. It plugs in under the left wrist. To keep this commuter jacket in working, we can also charge this USB separately. What is launching date and price of it? This smart jacket is called commuter and these two companies have finally confirmed that it’s going to be launched later this year and price of it around...
