Meet the Aerium: An algae air purifier created by IMET PhD candidates

Last week, Baltimore-based AlgenAir released the Aerium, an air purifier that uses algae to clean the air in a home or office. Algae is responsible for 40% of the world’s carbon fixation, due to the capacity for individual algae cells to capture CO2. Most of this carbon capture occurs in the vast ocean, but AlgenAir is looking to bring it to the living room. Cofounders Kelsey Abernathy and Dan Fucich are leading this charge to bring the capabilities and benefits of algae to the public. Abernathy and Fucich met through the PhD program at the University of Maryland’s Baltimore-based Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology studying aquaculture and algae carbon capture, respectively. During their third year of graduate school, they then went through the IMET REEF program, where young scientists cultivate leadership and business skills to help commercialize their research. This program sparked the entrepreneurial spirit in both Abernathy and Fucich, and they soon applied to The GRID Pitch competition, so named for the University of Maryland, Baltimore space where it’s held, to develop potential product ideas. When their pitch received a flood of positive feedback, they decid...

Wallet cases for iPhone serve two useful purposes. They both protect your handset and give you

Wallet cases for iPhone serve two useful purposes. They both protect your handset and give you a place to store your bank and ID cards. Our favorite wallet case, the BookBook vol. 2 from Twelve South, also has room for some cash. We’ve included other cases here that may better match your needs. Twelve South’s BookBook case lineup has been around for many years, and with each new release, a tweak here and there make them even better. The BookBook vol. 2 case for the iPhone 11 Pro Max makes your handset look like a mini leather book. Inside, you’ll find room for bank cards, IDs, and cash.

Biomimetic composites with enhanced toughening using silk-inspired triblock proteins and aligned nanocellulose reinforcements

Silk and cellulose are biopolymers that show strong potential as future sustainable materials. They also have complementary properties, suitable for combination in composite materials where cellulose would form the reinforcing component and silk the tough matrix. A major challenge concerns balancing structure and functional properties in the assembly process. We used recombinant proteins with triblock architecture, combining structurally modified spider silk with terminal cellulose affinity modules. Flow alignment of cellulose nanofibrils and triblock protein allowed continuous fiber production. Protein assembly involved phase separation into concentrated coacervates, with subsequent conformational switching from disordered structures into β sheets. This process gave the matrix a tough adhesiveness, forming a new composite material with high strength and stiffness combined with increased toughness. We show that versatile design possibilities in protein engineering enable new fully biological materials and emphasize the key role of controlled assembly at multiple length scales for realization. Biological materials and concepts have attracted growing interest among materials scien...

Blades have mattered to us for a couple of million years, the point from which the first worked Stone Age cutting implements and points have been dated. Which is to say, well before Neolithic man evolved into homo sapiens. That’s a long time for a tool to have served. In the meantime, we’ve slogged through the Bronze and Iron ages to arrive at a bewildering array of carbon- and stainless-steel alloys to craft the finest field knives. With few exceptions, the best hunting knives will be fixed blades with full tangs, meaning, the slab of steel from which the blade is fashioned will extend inside the length of the handle to add stability. These days, the blade-composition decision for the discerning hunter will be between carbon steel, which will corrode without care, and stainless steel, which can hold a blade longer but is far harder to sharpen. This little boy packs a punch. Benchma...

Imagine being confronted with half a tonne or more of metal and composite structures, electronics boxes

Imagine being confronted with half a tonne or more of metal and composite structures, electronics boxes and solar panels – an unwanted satellite. And then being handed a blowtorch and told to melt it into vapour. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1449240174198-2′); }); In real life, our atmosphere does just that for some satellites as their missions end. Satellites circling below 600 km are gradually pulled down by air drag, and then consumed in the furnace of reentry. The bad news is that some satellite parts survive this fiery plunge. Dozens of examples have been recovered over the years – some of them alarmingly large. In 1997, for instance, Texans Steve and Verona Gutowski were woken by the impact of what looked like a “dead rhinoceros” just 50 m from their farmhouse. It turned out to be a 250 kg fuel tank from a rocket stage. Modern space debris regulations demand that such incidents should not happen. Uncontrolled reentries should have a less than 1 in 10 000 chance of injuring anyone on the ground. As part of a larger effort called CleanSat, ESA is developing technologies and techniques to ensure future low-orbiting sat...

RFID stands for Radio-Frequency Identification. This acronym refers to small electronic devices that consist of a small chip and an antenna. Just as the barcode or a magnetic strip provides a unique identification to an object, RFID device retrieves information by scanning through the RFID label/tag. RFID serves the same purpose as the magnetic strip on the back of a credit card or bar codes on merchandise. RFID works better than barcodes as they need not be positioned precisely relative to the scanner. In fact, RFID Device can work effectively within a few feet of the scanner, precisely, 20 feet. Though RFID technology has been around for the last 50 years, it is only recently that RFID tags are gaining momentum. RFID Tags/Labels are also called RF tags and use a non-contact automatic identification technology. All RFID Tags/Labels have a unique electronic code, which is attached to the object to identify the target object. They are commonly known as RFID tags or smart labels. More RFID tag manufacturer is the best professional manufacturer. We are your most reliable and affordable RFID Tags/Labels supplier. These RFID tags/labels can be either passive RFID tags, semi-passive (...

Asus’ ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card reviewed

Back in October, Nvidia launched the GeForce RTX 2070 to bring the power of the Turing architecture to more gamers. The RTX 2070 was the first card to use TU106, Nvidia’s smallest Turing GPU so far. In its fully fledged form on the RTX 2070, TU106 offers 2304 shader ALUs spread across 36 Turing streaming multiprocessors, or SMs. Those SMs are further organized into three graphics processing clusters, or “GPCs” in Nvidia parlance. Turing chips are some of the largest GPUs around, and TU106 is no different despite its place at the base of the Turing lineup. At 445 mm², this chip’s die size closes in on the Vega 10 GPU that powers the Radeon RX Vega 56 and RX Vega 64. Area aside, however, the two teams’ most modern graphics processors couldn’t be more different. For gamers, Turing introduced Nvidia’s RT cores for acceleration of certain ray-tracing operations, along with tensor cores for neural-network processing. Even as the smallest of the Turing siblings, TU106 boasts a diverse bench of compute resources. The RTX 2070 has 36 SMs; each SM has eight tensor cores (288 total) and one RT core. Here’s how TU106 stacks up with some well-known cards from AMD and Nvidia alike: We’re look...

Indian cooking is known for its traditional ways of using spices. Be it dry spices or

Indian cooking is known for its traditional ways of using spices. Be it dry spices or pastes, almost every Indian dish uses the spices in some form. But it’s 2019 and no one simply has the time to use the traditional mortar and pestle to grind spices. In every kitchen today, one is sure to come across a mixer grinder. This multipurpose appliance is used for grinding spices, making pastes, mincing, making milkshakes and smoothies.  But how are you to choose the best product with a plethora of brands in the market? That’s exactly why we have prepared this list! A mixer grinder is an indispensable appliance in every Indian household today. Be it for grinding spices or for making healthy milkshakes, a mixer grinder is an appliance that can do it all.  Most mixers require between 550 watts to 750 watts of power to run. The higher the wattage, the quicker it will grind. Pick the mixer that suits your needs. It may be confusing to choose one mixer because several brands are making products that are essentially the same.  The Zodiac has a very capable 750 W motor that performs very well. The Vega V5 motor is very efficient. Preethi has put it through over 215 hours of endurance testing...
