Transcript of Inventions of 2012-2013

2012-2013 Inventions Five MIT students and their professor Kripa Varanasi have come up with a way to make a surface that anything will slide off—from ketchup out of bottles to ice off airplane wings. The plant-based product adds a microscopic slippery coating to almost any material—glass, ceramic, metal or plastic. Ballast Bulb Riddiford knew a falling weight could produce enough energy to run a grandfather clock, so why not a light? To find out, he attached the crank of a wind-up flashlight to a bicycle wheel. He hung a weight from the wheel to cause it to spin; the wheel cranked the flashlight, and the device lit up.
Over the next four years, Riddiford, Reeves, and a small team spent their downtime between projects in a basement, refining the GravityLight. To use it, a person hangs the device and fills an attached fabric bag with up to 28 pounds of rocks, dirt, or other material. Lifting and releasing the bag steadily pulls a notched belt through GravityLight’s plastic hub; the belt spins a series of gears to drive a small motor, which continuously powers an LED for about 30 minutes. Bouncing Imaging Let's Get
Inventing! This is a useful handy, yet powerful invention which was built by MIT student and an Army Ranger to give firefighters and cops an image of the situation in the affected areas. It is built with six cameras pointing to every direction and sensors which measure the temperature, radiation, air quality or such other hazards. This ball has to be tossed into critical areas where it will grab the images and data from the surrounding situation and will immediately send it to the mobile devices. http://techozilla.com/top-10-most-amazing-inventions-of-year-2012/ 3D Printers This invention is no doubt never-heard until now, but yea that’s true – now you can print bones, jewelry, artistic structures, parts of engines in 3D! The main creators behind this type of printers are Formlabs who created a Desktop computer sized 3D printers which you cannot only carry, but also hopefully afford at the same time, these are called Form 1 printers.3D printers will allow designers and engineers to make 3D forms of objects in just one touch of button. http://techozilla.com/top-10-most-amazing-inventions-of-year-2012/ LiquiGlide http://techland.time.com/2012/11/01/best-inventions-of-the-year-2012/slide/liquiglide/ http://www.popsci.com/technology/article/2013-04/lighting-ballast-bulb
