Project Mainstream is global project targeting areas of sustainability thwarted by complexities such as e-waste, using a circular economy model.One example, IBM is working to keep industrial products in continuous loops to maximize residual value and ensure that end-of-lease and client-owned IT equipment is refurbished, resold, disassembled or sold as parts, to be used for repair and maintenance work.The fishermen, many of whom are unable to read or write, are being trained to use the smartphones and are being provided with local charging facilities.The research is being led by CSIRO and aims to improve honey bee pollination and productivity on farms, as well as help understand the drivers of bee Colony Collapse Disorder CCD , a condition decimating honey bee populations worldwide.Using proprietary algorithms, TreeTAG generates a one-time code that captures precise data on the potential maximum yield of each tree, as well as the species, time, date, and exact location where each tree is felled.In Italy, researchers at SUNRISE are also working to enable seas, lakes and rivers to be digital highways for data transfer from sensors, robots, and underwater vehicles capable of performing tasks too dangerous for humans.
The company says it will grant benefits packages amounting to $500,000, including its design tools, engineering experts, prototype services, manufacturing support and supply chain management.The company says it will also provide qualifying campaigners with discounts on bills of materials and technology design software, as well as consultations with design engineers to solve complex issues through the process of bringing their projects to life.The initiative could certainly help more campaigns fulfill their rewards promises and actually make it to store shelves.And earlier this month, a $1 million campaign to build the world s thinnest watch also flopped.Arrow, which boasts sales of more than $23 billion last year from industrial products and services and made the news in 2014 by developing a car for quadriplegic racer Sam Schmidt that he could drive by tilting his his head, might be just the thing the crowdfunding community needs to become more legitimate.Of course, we ll have to wait and see how it propels projects from ideas to finished products in the coming months.
BlackBerry Ltd. BBRY 2.54 % unveiled a second Android-powered phone on Tuesday, doubling down on efforts to revive its struggling handset business even as its first bet on the popular operating system is yet to pay off.The new device, along with BlackBerry s broader handset effort, face an uphill battle as the Canadian company s smartphone sales have shrunk to a fraction of former levels amid competition from rivals such as Apple Inc. and Samsung Electronics.That is pushing some analysts to call on BlackBerry to give up on handsets, as the device maker accounts for less than 1% of global smartphone market, and to focus only on higher-margin mobile-security software and related services.For the quarter ended May 31, BlackBerry s handset business had an operating loss of $21 million.The once-dominant smartphone maker covets a profitable handset business to augment sales of its growing, but still relatively small, software and patent licensing division.Achieving profitability would also afford BlackBerry more time to develop new secure devices that connect consumer and industrial products to the web.
In its first year, Amazon Business has generated more than $1 billion in sales from more than 400,000 business customers, the company said during its earnings report released on Thursday.Amazon Business wasn't exactly a started-from-scratch new unit, as Venture Beat reported at the time.It launched at the end of April, 2015 and replaced a service called AmazonSupply that had been around since 2012.AmazonSuppy was a marketplace that focused more on industrial products and office supplies.It was Amazon's first attempt to get into the market occupied by warehouse retailers.Amazon Business is run by Prentis Wilson who also ran AmazonSuppy.Wilson came to Amazon after working as a buyer for Cisco.The revised Amazon Business expanded the scope of the stuff for sale.As Amazon describes it, it offers "hundreds of millions of products – everything from IT and lab equipment to education and food service supplies" that businesses can buy for special prices.It also enlisted manufacturers and distributors to sell their stuff directly to Amazon customers.Amazon said that 30,000 third-party sellers have participated and have fulfilled over half of the Amazon Business orders.All this to say that Amazon Business may have had a bit of head start in reaching $1 billion in its first year but, even so, it looks like Amazon has another hit on its hands.Disclosure: Jeff Bezos is an investor in Business Insider through his personal investment company Bezos Expeditions.NOW WATCH: The first major heat wave of the summer is about to slam the East Coast — here's what you can expectLoading video...
On this screen, the software is tracking current conditions on a wind turbine and comparing actual energy production against a forecast.As the internet of things starts to generate data from far-flung sensors and automate remote equipment, it doesn t always make sense to house all the intelligence for these systems in data centers.Edge computing components like gateways can shorten response times or just filter out sensor readings that don t matter so they won t burden the network.But how to build edge computing systems and write their software, like so much else in IoT, is still a work in progress.On Tuesday, Silicon Valley startup FogHorn Systems introduced the Lightning software platform, which is designed to bring real-time analytics and machine learning down to edge devices, including IoT gateways and even very low-powered processing components built into industrial products.Lightning has been used in proof-of-concept implementations in things like pumps, wind turbines, buses and locomotives.

Things are looking a little brighter on the Dark Side with the debut of a delightfully over-the-top Darth Vader helmet crafted from solid gold.The hefty 33-pound (15 kilogram) sculpture comes from Japanese precious metals business Tanaka Kikinzoku Group, which specializes in industrial products and jewelry.The Japan Times reports the helmet could be yours for the low, low price of $1.4 million (£1.1 million, AU$1.9 million) when it goes on sale on May 4 (May the Fourth), a day marking global Star Wars celebrations.The bright and shiny work of sci-fi art is on display at a Tanaka Kikinzoku jewelry store in Tokyo.The Jiji Press wire service posted a video of the luxury item on display on Monday.It appears to be pretty close to life size.
p As any avid competitive or recreation mountain biker would attest, some terrain conditions limit the use of their bike, even if they possess a highly developed skill or physical ability.Established in 2010, the Rungu brand comes by way of Standard Bearer Machines, LLC – A family business based in San Clemente, California.Peter Godlewski and his dad started Standard Bearer Machines, LLC to develop new consumer and industrial products.One of their creations, the Rungu Trike, started out as an answer to a local problem of how best to transport surfboards to the beach and after the Juggernaut’s release in March 2016, it quickly became one of the most versatile electric bikes on the market.You can bicycle to the beach but you have to push your bike through soft sand for half a mile to get to the break.After a few prototypes, my dad and I came up with a three-wheel formula that can haul a board or other equipment well on road, sand, and snow.”
PULLMAN, Wash.--Jean-Sabin McEwen knocks out a web search for "North Dakota," "night sky" and "flaring," and quickly finds a picture from space showing a glowing cluster bigger than Minneapolis.It's from oil and gas fields burning off methane, producing as much greenhouse gas in a year as 1 million cars."So the question is: Is there something you can do better than that?"Ha and McEwen, a WSU assistant professor of chemical engineering, say they have a solution: a small reactor that inexpensively breaks water and methane into carbon monoxide and hydrogen, which can be used for energy and industrial products.It is also a greenhouse gas 34 times more potent than carbon dioxide over the course of a century.Piping it from remote areas is expensive, so energy companies burn off about one-third of the gas they produce in bright flares that can be seen from space.
For natural gas to be efficiently converted into useful industrial products requires the right catalytic process.Researchers from KAUST and the US combine state-of-the-art techniques for material characterization to demonstrate a unique reaction pathway that shows that molten catalysts based on sodium can provide all the chemical species required to optimize the process.Free radicals, molecules with an unpaired valence electron, such as the hydroxyl radical, play a crucial role in the industrially important conversion of natural gas, primarily methane, to ethylene: a vital organic compound that forms the building blocks of many commodities and polymers.The KAUST team -- led by Kazuhiro Takanabe and his student Abdulaziz Khan -- used in situ tools to measure the state of a catalyst under reaction conditions.They discovered that the active species in the catalytic reaction that exits on the molten surface of the sodium tungstate, a chemical necessary for the reaction, is sodium peroxide.This catalyst is unique in that instead of activating methane directly, it firsts activates water and then generates gaseous hydroxyl radicals.

In 2014, after growing industrial hemp in the U.S. became legal for the first time in almost five decades, organic farmer John Bell applied for a permit and planted a few acres on his 550-acre family farm in central Kentucky.As a result, the 48-year-old has faced a steep learning curve since he put the first seeds in the ground four seasons ago.Despite questions of legality, the market for hemp products—body-care products like soaps and lotions, edible items like hemp milk and shelled hemp seeds, and industrial products like building materials and auto parts—existed even before the 2014 legislation.Then after decades of prohibition, a provision in the 2014 Farm Bill legalized growing the crop under a strict set of circumstances, allowing farmers, for the first time in decades, to profit from the demand for hemp goods—and setting the long-dormant U.S. hemp industry in motion once again.During World War II, the government briefly reversed its stance and promoted hemp-fiber production—for necessities like parachutes, uniforms, tarps, and tents—but it sold off the mills and revoked the growing licenses after the war.Some attribute the post-war prohibition to lobbying pressure from the petrochemical industry, which was developing its own industrial alternatives, and the desire to maintain cheap trade in wood and textiles; others say hemp got caught up in the War on Drugs.
Researchers have learned to combine up to eight different metals in a single tiny, uniformly mixed nanoparticle.In the March 30 cover article of the journal Science, the researchers, from Johns Hopkins and three other universities, reported that their new technique enabled them to combine multiple metals, including those not usually considered capable of mixing.This process has created new, stable nanoparticles with useful applications in the chemical and energy industries, the researchers said.Many industrial products like fertilizers and plastics are made with the help of catalysts, substances that speed up chemical reactions.Metallic alloy nanoparticles -- particles ranging from about a billionth to 100 billionths of a meter in size -- are a critical ingredient in such processes.Until now, however, only a small set were available because of limitations that arise when combining extremely different metals to form homogeneous alloys, which are combinations of metals.
A unique collaborative project at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute seeks to provide a sustainable solution, while also considering the environment.After a disaster strikes, first responders and other aid organizations mobilize to send needed supplies such as water, food, and medicine.Bottled water is sent by the tons, but all too often, the empty plastic bottles end up in the trash stream.Students and faculty in the Schools of Engineering and Architecture are conducting a multifaceted research project that includes structural and architectural design, along with strength analysis, of revolutionary transitional shelter designs built using the patented plastic interlocking bottles of Friendship Products LLC, led by inventor Timothy Carlson.The aim is to foster dialogue on topics relating to recycling of industrial products as building materials and on sustainable building construction.The idea is to use the bottles as sturdy, low-cost, easily assembled building blocks.
