Electricity Distribution System

Researchers from the University of Waterloo have designed a new distribution system that would lower electricity expenses by 5%. This design involves installation of two different electricity currents – direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) – powering industries and homes. This leads to increase services reliability as this distribution system delivers both kinds of currents. Current distribution system used globally can only deliver AC-type of the distribution systems. This

A New Study Developed a Fabric to Powering Wearable with Body Heat

Wearable biosensors and transmitters have features of the health monitoring. These devices are now ‘creatively miniaturized’, said Trisha Andrew from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Trish Andrew and one of her fellow Linden Allison reported that they have developed a fabric. This fabric can power these wearables such as activity tracker. Earlier, in an online version of the Advanced Materials Technologies, the Allison and Andrew explained the theory. They said

Rocking Chair

A new study reveals the benefits of rocking motion for sleep – one conducted in young adults and other one in mice. The result shows that the rocking chair leads to better sleep and boosts memory consolidation. Even if the volunteers are all good sleepers, when rocked they fall asleep more rapidly and experience deep sleep. This has also resulted in less arousal during the night, thus evincing rocking is

Joining Gun

A team of researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology have created a joining gun. This gun establishes a connection between metal and thermoplastic materials in a few seconds. It has a modular design and can be incorporated into the production process. For example, the production of the gun in the assembly replaces the spot welding gun if mounted on a robot arm. A scientist named Annett


An active YouTube user? Then, you are most likely to mirror the emotions of the YouTubers you follow. A study published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science has revealed this trend. Not just that, you are also bound to mingle with the crowd that reflects similar ideas. Correlation between the YouTuber and Audience’s Emotions The phenomenon of being influenced by other’s emotions is called as “contagion”. “Homophily” is
