The principle of electroaerodynamic thrust aka ionic wind was discovered in the 1920s but it was not explored as a form of propulsion until 4 years ago. Fast forward to 2022, a man took it further by designing the next-gen ionic thruster for flight.
Japanese company Matssura Kogyo has a solution to hot flashes: IceBattery Fresh. For the uninitiated, hot flashes are a sudden flare of heat, sweating, and discomfort and are common symptoms of menopause. It is a palm-cooling device that will help quell hot flashes.
Mojo Vision, the maker of the smart contact lens with smart glasses functionality, has made huge progress in recent months. Not only the company has revealed its advanced prototype but the CEO, Drew Perkins, wears it for real. That’s right. Folks, science fiction has gotten real! This absolutely bonkers, in a good way, of course.
Japan’s construction materials company Kuwataka Construction Co., Ltd. has developed an easy-to-assemble disaster shelter called ERRY. The company noted that current disaster shelters do not offer privacy for evacuees, who are suffering from mental and physical stress.
Remember Kubota Glass, a new non-invasive cure for myopia, that was in development? Well, the Japanese version of the Kubota Glass will go on sale in Japan starting on August 1.
Ford has recently revealed that it is trialing a geofencing speed limit control system. The geofencing speed limit control system, as the name implies, uses geofencing technology to automatically reduce the speed of vehicles instead of relying on drivers to do so. To crudely put, it is a tech that will enforce a speed limit …
Sound absorbing panel is usually made of materials like mineral wool, open cell foam et cetera. Sometimes the panel has a jagged surface too. Whatever materials or surfaces it has, the panel is always opaque. But not this sound-absorbing panel called iwasemi HX-α from Japanese tech company Pixie Dust Technologies (PxDT), though.
There are many drone makers that make drones that can carry out industrial inspections. The Cleo Robotics Dronut K1 we saw recently is one such example. That said industrial inspection, indoor or outdoor, is nothing new. However, what Skypersonic pulled off recently is a groundbreaking achievement in commercial unmanned drone operations.
Four years ago, MIT made history with a real-life ion drive model plane. It was a major breakthrough in aircraft propulsion. Fast forward to today, a Florida startup has unveiled the new design of its silent eVTOL drone powered by ion propulsion.
You know how in some sci-fi animes/movies, the supervillain wears a giant exoskeleton suit so he or she can wreak havoc and possibly, take over the world? Well that, my friends, is sci-fi no more.
