Israeli startup Electroad has launched an experiment, where the road mounted electromagnetic induction coils to charge electric cars the car is in motion.the basic principle of the system is the same as, say, the smartphone wireless charging and electric toothbrushes, writes the Inhabitat.Electroadin model has already been tried successfully.Now it is becoming even wider test bus route in Tel Aviv.If such technologies become more common, electric cars will no longer need to download separately.Electroad promise more cost-effective, more efficient and cleaner ways to move.
Russian athletes are currently banned from international competition until they can satisfy "strict criteria" to prove to officials they are clean and more than 100 Olympic athletes who competed at the 2008 and 2012 events have been sanctioned.These bans relate to drug doping, but there are other forms of "doping".Femke Van den Driessche was said to have a concealed an electric motor in her bike during the Cyclocross World Championships and was fined £14,000 alongside her ban.Riders can activate the motors via Bluetooth by flipping tiny hidden switches in the handlebars.The system works by using tiny electromagnetic coils inside the structure of the wheel to propel the bike.Electromagnetic wheels can add up to 60 watts to pedalling power, and motors hidden inside water bottles or underneath seats can boost speed by up to 5kph.
Attendees at last week s Maker Faire Austin were in for a treat as ArcAttack, a musical act that harnesses the power of Tesla coils to make music, put on a live performance.Now, thanks to Make senior editor Caleb Kraft, you can watch their full set on YouTube… in 360 degrees.In addition to playing music and educating the crowd, ArcAttack even invited onlookers to dance inside a Faraday case as it is blasted with tens of thousands of volts.If you ve never seen a Tesla coil in action, they re certainly interesting and a bit terrifying.Video, even the 360-degree variety, doesn't do it justice.Found is a TechSpot feature where we share clever, funny or otherwise interesting stuff from around the web.
Not only are they beautiful to behold, they also are unique in how they stretch and move.Not surprisingly, scientists have been studying spider webs for years, hoping to uncover the mechanism that allows the material to stretch, yet remain tight.The sticky glue that encases the thread does more than capture prey; it also functions like a fishing reel that coils up the excess parts of the thread.The scientists were able to recreate this unique property using a plastic filament that was covered with tiny droplets of oil.Our bio-inspired hybrid threads could be manufactured from virtually any components.These new insights could lead to a wide range of applications, such as microfabrication of complex structures, reversible micro-motors, or self-tensioned stretchable systems, said Dr. Hervé Elettro, a doctoral researcher at Institut Jean Le Rond D Alembert, Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris.
GIFIf you re interested in melting metal, and you totally should be because it s basically the most fun way to recycle soda cans, The Art of Weapons details how to make an electric foundry for metal casting.Using charcoal to heat up a foundry can get a bit dirty so it makes much more sense to melt metal by running electric heat through coils.With a little bit of electricity know-how, you ll be on your way to torching things in no time.That orange glow from the hot hot heat of the coil is always so gnarly to see.

To contain this super-hot plasma, winding copper coils generate a magnetic field 20,000 times stronger than that of the Earth.Image: Elle Starkman/PPPL Office of Communications It almost sounds too good to be true: this concept that we re going to have a limitless, carbon-free energy source, Clayton Myers, a plasma physicist working on the NSTX-U, told me.No experiment to date has managed to achieve this.The NSTX-U will allow Princeton researchers to fill in some of the gaps between what is known of fusion plasma physics now, and what will be needed to build a pilot plant capable of reaching reaching that steady state burn and generating net electricity.Our view is that, if fusion is going to make a difference to global warming, we have to go faster.Fusion is really the ultimate energy source—it s the way we want to do things eventually, said Robert Rosner, a plasma physicist at the University of Chicago and co-founder of its Energy Policy Institute.

Photographer: Erik Abel In HSB Living Lab will low temperature heating water, which has already warmed up the other buildings, tested in the underfloor heating coils. - We use the same water much more efficiently, says Peter Hulten, development engineer at Göteborg Energi. The building also has a normal flow of high-temperature heating water that can be used in underfloor heating coils if required. Henrik Jönsson at consulting firm Bengt Dahlgren sees another advantage. Personal energy: How can individuals be encouraged to reduce their energy use? Thermal Inertia: Is it for short periods to refrain from adjusting the heating thanks to the building's thermal inertia?
GIFAs always, John Heisz can transform old, rusty blades into lovely works of art.This time, he turns a circular saw blade into a drawknife.A drawknife has two handles on each side and a blade that is meant for shaving down wood.Seeing a straight blade come out of a circular saw is pretty impressive, but what might be even cooler is how Heisz created the two handles: he bent the steel and burned it into the wooden knobs, and added copper coils at the end for style.
Blizzard adds support for Facebook in all their games. Soon you can view Facebook coils exactly how good you are at playing Overwatch. Besides already mentioned Overwatch you should therefore also be able to stream games like Diablo and Hearthstone through the new feature Go Live. Do not miss: Baking Overwatch finally here - and we're totally floored In connection with the announcement took Blizzard also to announce that they are adding the ability to log in via Facebook in their titles. No exact date for the Facebook integration is not, but updates are expected to roll out in June, 2016. Then they bought up e-sports league Mayor League Gaming and started pouring competitive games in the Call of Duty directly through Facebook.

London's popular Science Museum has an entire new fun wing under development, with the £6m Wonderlab set to open for business this October.It's much bigger than the existing Launchpad interactive science space, and will include Tesla coils, a 7m long Friction Slide, a fibreoptic orrery moving mechanical star array , vibrating sound pods and lots of new things designed to make science even more appealing to our digital native kids than it already is.The friction slide.Going down a slide is not an accurate depiction of the working life of a scientist.This is a big flappy-around thing, designed to show how sound waves work.The Science Museum, being all modern and all and popular with the kids, has put an animated GIF on its Twitter page showing how the actual device looks in action.

ThyssenkruppIf you have even the least bit trouble walking, city subway systems are bad news.The Multi, from German engineering outfit Thyssenkrupp, is a mag-lev elevator system that doesn t just go up and down—it goes sideways.It can help increasingly overcrowded public transit systems move people—and not just those with disabilities—into, around, and out of stations.First introduced as a concept in 2014, Multi uses magnetic levitation to propel multiple cabins through one loop-de-loop shaft at the same time.It s the same tech used in a few non-American rail systems: Magnetic coils on an elevator shaft track repel magnets on elevator cabins, floating rider-filled boxes to their destinations.Riders could call a cabin right to their office floor, and the system would organize riders making trips to the same subway platform together.
But the souped-up pads come with a lot more than coils and foam.The OHEA Smart Bed actually makes itself with the touch of a button.The Smarttress claims it can catch cheating bedfellows with sensors embedded on the mattress surface that can detect movement and alert you via text.And the Sleep Number Sleep IQ Kids lets kids check for supernatural creatures.The mattress that your neighbor raves about may not be the mattress you rave about, Terry Cralle, a certified clinical sleep educator and author of Sleeping Your Way To The Top, previously told The Huffington Post.Still — a bed that makes itself?
