Revolutionary Israeli-Developed Paint Can Absorb Sun’s Hot Rays and Cool Buildings Down

But an Israeli high-tech paint doesn’t just protect surfaces from the sun. SolCold actually uses the sun’s power to activate a cooling mechanism, effectively providing air conditioning without electricity. You read that right: This double-layered coating absorbs the hot rays of the sun and re-emits that energy in the form of cold. The hotter the solar radiation the more the coating cools down, making SolCold’s paint a potentially game-changing electricity-free solution for intensely sunny climates such as Africa and Central and South America. The Herzliya-based startup is raising funds and plans to begin trials within 18 months of closing the Series A round in the first quarter of 2018.

SolCold’s product is generating interest for coating anything from chicken coops to cargo ships, malls to stadiums, cars to planes, satellites to hothouses, military equipment to apartment houses.

Chicago learns from other cities' experiences to develop CityKey

But Chicago is joining a number of cities in introducing an all-in-one municipal ID card — dubbed CityKey — that will allow residents to leave many of their existing cards at home. New Haven, CT sparked the municipal ID trend more than a decade ago when it took the controversial step of offering undocumented immigrants an identification card that would allow them to take advantage of certain city services such as using the library, opening a utility account or opening a bank account. The concept has evolved substantially since that time, but cities often fight the misconception that the cards are only for undocumented immigrants; they’re actually for everyone, especially populations that have difficulty obtaining ID cards.

So came the idea of a card that offers every citizen the same benefits and access to what the city offers. Buoy is a whole-home water monitoring and alert system. Enlarge Image Your home's water supply is serious business.

Elon Musk is terrified of this supercomputer - Video - Technology. Thinnest, lightest, solar cells ever created outperform their bulky glass brethren. Using gossamer-like layers of flexible polymers, researchers at MIT have created the thinnest and lightest solar cells ever made.

Thinnest, lightest, solar cells ever created outperform their bulky glass brethren

Just one-fiftieth the thickness of a human hair, and capable of producing up to 6 watts of power per gram, these cells are so thin and light that they can be supported on the surface of a soap bubble without breaking it. With such impressive credentials, the prototype cells have the potential to add solar power to everything from paper-based electronics through to all manner of mobile devices and exceptionally lightweight wearables.

Though flexible solar cells are hardly a new innovation, even being produced experimentally in everything from continuously printed rolls to spray on panels, the power-to-weight ratio is where these new cells come into their own. With a demonstrated output of 6 watts per gram, they produce an output some 400 times greater than standard glass-covered solar cells that generate about 15 watts of power per kilogram on average. Source: 3D solar towers offer up to 20 times more power output than traditional flat solar panels. While we’ve looked at the development of solar cell technologies that employ nanoscale 3D structures to trap light and increase the amount of solar energy absorbed, MIT researchers have now used 3D on the macro scale to achieve power output that is up to 20 times greater than traditional fixed flat solar panels with the same base area.

The approach developed by the researchers involves extending the solar cells upwards in a three-dimensional tower or cube configuration to enable them to better capture the sun's rays when it is lower on the horizon. Solar panels placed flat on a rooftop are most effective at harnessing solar energy when the sun is close to directly overhead, but quickly lose their efficiency as the angle of the sun’s rays hitting the panel increases – during the mornings, evenings, in the cooler months and in locations far from the equator.

It is exactly in these situations that the researcher’s vertical solar modules provided the biggest boosts in power output. Every Time You Shower, This Gadget Makes Energy From The Extra Heat. A few years ago, an engineer was taking a shower and started looking at the water going down the drain and wondering how much energy was going with it. The answer, it turned out, was pretty large: after heating and cooling, hot water uses more energy than anything else in the typical home, and 80-90% of that energy is wasted seconds after the water flows out of the showerhead. What if the heat could be recaptured to keep the shower hot? After working with a team on 4,700 different experiments and iterations, engineer David Velan had a new design that worked–a device that pulls heat from water as it flows out and transfers it back into the clean water to warm it up.

Since the product is double-walled, the dirty water is fully separated; only the heat is transferred, helping recover about 45% of the energy that would have otherwise gone down the drain.

So called because its panels are thing enough to slot between the pages of a notebook, and touted as the "world's thinnest and lightest solar charger" by its creators, Yolk, Solar Paper measures 9 x 19 x 1.1 cm (3.5 x 7.5 x 0.4 in) and weighs 120 g (4.2 oz), while the actual solar panels are only 1.5 mm thick.

But Solar Paper has more going for it than just its form factor. Unlike most solar chargers on the market, it features modular panels that connect via embedded magnets.

Researchers Can Spot Earthquakes Using Fiber Optic Cables. Earthquakes are some of our planet's most devastating natural disasters. With almost no warning, an earthquake can level entire cities in a matter of minutes. For the millions of people living on or near fault lines, a few extra minutes of warning can mean the difference between life and death, so it's crucial that we're able to see major earthquakes coming as soon as possible.
