American inventor launches music gear company with revolutionary goals

No comments

A start-up music gear company from Missouri says the launch of their first product will begin a transformation for the music industry that is akin to the switch from landlines to smartphones. cameron eaton and the rockdolly inventionTheir big aspirations include manufacturing not just their all-in-one wireless speaker systems for bands and DJs, but also a host of unique instruments that have integrated wireless connectivity.

Their all-in-one solution for musicians is the RockDolly. The RockDolly acts as the guitar amplifier, bass amplifier, pa-system, wireless mic and instrument hub, and mixer for live music production. As the name suggests, all of this equipment is arranged neatly in brightly colored boxes and has recessed casters and handles much like a dolly or hand cart.

Cameron Eaton, the inventor and designer behind RockDolly Equipment, says he has other inventions in the fields of energy and transportation that can not yet be discussed. Right now he is devoting most of his efforts to launching the RockDolly. He thinks that he can leverage this commercially popular product, and the revenue from it, into a research and development company that can pursue the other projects. Right now, that means all efforts are going towards this musical endeavor.

He says that his company isn’t just looking into wireless guitars and basses though. They have plans to build wireless chime drums, theremins, even a never before conceived electric hurdy-gurdy. His vision for the company involves what some consider to be a re-invention of the wheel, drawing criticism from competitors who say that no revolution is necessary. Right now, the company is far from those lofty goals. Their first product launch is expected next month through a Kickstarter campaign where they will unveil their latest design and plan to sell a limited number of units.

When asked about the relatively low number of units (200) available for a product launch, Eaton said that his small team of carpenters and circuit-builders can only handle so many orders each month, and will need time to scale up. He wants to manufacture all of the RockDolly units and instruments in the United States, a tricky proposal, even while the climate is starting to lean towards American manufacturing.

Eaton patented his design and believes his company can raise enough capital in their Kickstarter launch to both scale up manufacturing, and begin hiring the engineers he says he needs to bring the company to the next level. Will the company attain their goal of “music industry revolution”? Until we see how well their Kickstarter performs, your guess is as good as ours. More information at www.rockdollyequipment.com

Rainwater’s Engine

1 comment

According to Lefigaro magazine, Laurent Baltazar who sells his system for five years now,  said that the rainwater’s engine actually brings water in spray form to improve engine efficiency. The combustion process is more efficient because the combustion temperature is reduced.  The kit, which costs about 300 EUR, is to install a system for storing water in a tank and frost resistant under the hood and then inject water into the engine. The device allows a motorist to reduce from 20% to 50% fuel consumption.

The effectiveness of the system depends on “the legality of the conduct and the load of the vehicle,” the creator of the device said”. Fuel economy will thus be greater on agricultural machinery, trucks or boats because the load is heavy and steady pace.

Regarding cars, traffic on highway permit greater efficiency in town for example. The car model can also play. Thus, an owner of 306 indicates that the vehicle autonomy gain is about 300 kilometers on a full, says the motorist to 1200 km with the device where it was 900 km previously. Fill the rainwater tank every 1000 km.

Another advantage, carbon emissions are reduced with this system. “On at least 20%,” says the inventor. But again the benefits of the system depends on the vehicle. “On a car, we could measure the CO2 emissions into the atmosphere has been reduced by 70% after installing the kit.” The effectiveness of the device is greater on the most dilapidated vehicles.

Only constraint, says Laurent Baltazar, users of this system should fill the tank kit every 1000 km with rain water or demineralized water.
Moreover, term users of the system may need to replace parts inside the device, says Baltazar who explained that still the lack of hindsight to know the rate of degradation of the kit. The latter however, that “the life of the system is around 150,000 kilometers, the life of an engine.” He added that his system is legal and does not damage engines. “We have never heard that the fog damages the engines, says Baltazar.

The success of its system is growing. If fitted to around 1,000 vehicles in the first year, it aims this year around 10,000 systems sold. And a large group would have passed him a major order for catalysts of series production. Laurent Baltazar, who says to fill orders, indicates rethink its organization to fill satisfy demands.

Vaccinations have the merit of saving millions of life. The idea of the vaccinations lies in the concept of raising the immunity of the person by getting a very small and harmful amount of the virus or the microbe. The first scientist to reach a vaccine was the English physician Edward Jenner (1749-1823) and the first vaccine was smallpox vaccine. The other most important vaccinations are Polio vaccine that was discovered by the American virologist Jonas Salk’s (1914-1995), Measles vaccine which was discovered by the American microbiologist Maurice Hilleman (1919-2005) and the Tetanus vaccine was discovered by the French veterinarian and microbiologist Edmond Nocard (1850-1903).

The Swedish inventor Nils Bohlin, was born in the year 1920, is a man who we can call a lifesaver as he saved millions of lives by his invention the car seatbelt.

Adding fluoride to the water and toothpaste saved thousands of people from dying due to teeth abscess, as it would cause horrible pains that will lead to the starvation of the patient. United States of America was the first country to add fluoride to water.

Pasteurization is another life saver, pasteurization is the a method to keep foods and drinks healthy by heating it then cooling it immediately. Pasteurization kills a number of the micro-organisms that causes diseases.

Pacemakers that was first invented in the year 1950 by a Canadian engineer John Alexander Hopps (1919-1998) is one of the life savers. The pacemaker nowadays has become totally different from the first one, it became much smaller and more effective in regulating the heart beats.

Lifestraw is a water filter invention for the people who have problems in getting a supply of clean drinking water. Lifestraw is a plastic tube which filter the water, it can be described as a mobile filter as it can be used to filter any water no matter how unclean it is. Lifestraw was invented by the Danish inventor Torben Vestergaard.

The microwave oven

Visiting a laboratory, Percy Spencer, an American scientist , discovered in 1945 a strange phenomenon. He noticed that the chocolate bar he kept in his pocket began to melt quickly. He was not the first to notice this, but he was the first to investigate. He did an experiment with an egg:

He placed the egg in in a tea kettle, and the magnetron was placed directly above it (Magnetron is An electron tube for amplifying or generating microwaves, with the flow of electrons controlled by an external magnetic field).

The result was the egg exploding in the face of one of his co-workers, who was looking in the kettle to observe. Spencer then created the first true microwave oven by attaching a high density electromagnetic field generator to an enclosed metal box. The magnetron emitted microwaves into the metal box blocking any escape, allowing for controlled and safe experimentation. He then placed various food items in the box, while observing effects and monitoring temperatures. He then repeated the experiment with corn grain. He got popcorn in seconds.

velcro 300x272Velcro
Discovered by Georges De Mestral. Walking in the woods, the Swiss engineer observes that burdock clings to his corduroy trousers. Intrigued, he looked more closely at the form of the plant hooks and loops of the fabric of his pants. So he invented Velcro which is the shortcut to mean velvet hook.

Potato Chips
During the summer of 1853 the restaurant ‘ Moon Lake Lodge’ in Saratoga Springs, New York , the United States, a client accused the cook of bringing him too thick fries . A new service was presented to him with more fried thinly sliced ​​. But they met with the disapproval of this devious client. The chief decided then to prepare a very thin sliced of chips, crunchy and hard. The following day, the restaurant was surprised of the increasing strong demands of chips lovers in the restaurant.


Coca -Cola
Styth John Pemberton, a pharmacist in Atlanta (Georgia), wanted to create a new drug, a kind of refreshing syrup. He developed a mixture of kola nut extract, sugar, caffeine, coca leaves and plant extracts. The beverage is sold at the ‘soda -fountain ‘ of Jacob ‘s Pharmacy. Then he got the idea to dilute the syrup with carbonated water, and that’s when Coca- Cola was being invented.

Phonograph

It was invented by Thomas Edison involuntarily seeking in 1877 to record telegraph messages. He recorded it for the first time in the history of humanity, a human voice, his voice.

inkjet printer 300x257
Inkjet printer

A Canon engineer discovered it accidentally. He had left a hot soldering iron next to his pen, The pen has responded by spitting ink moments later. Thus, this is how the Inkjet Printer was invented and developed.

Dynamite

Alfred Nobel had a nitroglycerin plant. He was working on a formula to make the nitroglycerin more stable, because it is known to jump randomly. He accidentally dropped a bottle of nitro that slipped in sawdust, and did not explode. Later, he refined his recipe and this explosive paper wrapped in stick form is called “dynamite” and patented in 1867.

vaseline

Vaseline

In 1859, Robert Chesebrough wanted to get rich thanks to oil in Pennsylvania. Finally he did not really find the famous black and gold, but a yellow viscous substance. Back to his laboratory in New York, he found (after oil insulation) that is a good balm for healing cuts and scrapes (first applications found). Chesebrough ate a spoonful of vaseline every day until his death.

viagra

Viagra

Originally researchers Pfizer wanted to develop a treatment for angina pectoris (heart disease). In clinical trials, the treatment did not have the desired effect. However, they were surprised to see that it caused an erection. They decided to reposition the treatment and viagra arrived in the U.S. in 1998 and Europe in 1999.

A Bionic Eye For The Blind – Israeli Invention

Israeli Scientists have developed a technology that allows blind people to see with the help of a bionic lens contact.

The new technology, developed by a team from the Bar-llan University, has yet to receive the approval of clinical trials, but its feasibility is currently being tested using a model simulating the bionic lens.

The technology consists of a small camera that received visual information from the environment and transmits signals to a bionic lens contact. the lens passes the signals via the electrodes to the cornea and from there to the sensory brain areas, generating a stimulus that simulates the visual information.

Professor Zeev Zalevsky, head of electrical engineering and nano-photonics at Bar-llan University and leader of research team said:”This technology is a god news for humanity, especially to give sight to the blind without surgery or damage to other vital organs or sense”.

The first Smartphone for the blind waiting for the end of 2013

A young Indian inventor is trying to develop a unique smartphone, for the blind which are about 20 million in India.

Read his messages, reply, listen to music or just surf the web with your smartphone. Many daily actions that you now seem completely banal, but who are not blind. While many applications allow them to use smartphones, but none of these smart phones is really adapted to their disability.

Not for long: a young inventor Indian Sumit Dagar, has devised a smartphone accessible to blind, has a touch screen that can read Braille, tactile writing system used by the blind people can be read on the website of Indian Times. Better, the same prototype give the opportunity to guess the fingertips of photos or maps.

An introductory price estimated at $ 185

In terms of technology,  Short development, this smartphone could hit the market by the end of 2013, with an introductory price estimated at 185 dollars (142 euros), according to several specialized sites.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 285 million people are visually impaired worldwide: 39 million are blind and 246 million are visually impaired. A niche market, in fact.

Expiring Medication Packaging to announce not to take the medicine

Instead of the usual Medication Packaging that we are used to and can see in the image, a lot of people have problems with seeing the expiry dates printed on the back of the Medication Packaging. The new invention is to have marks on the back of Medication Packaging that is obviously spotted. The gadget will prevent people to take the medications that are expired as they will not benefit from the medications.
The new packaging would use a multi-layered material featuring the standard label layer on top, and a sub-layer with the expiration warning message. In between these layers would be a diffusible material that lets the ink from the bottom layer seep through over time, eventually revealing when the meds were expired.
The approach not only helps prevent consumers from taking expired medication, in theory it would also make it very difficult for shady retailers to sell medicine that’s past its prime.

Terumo’s Upwalk Toe Lifting Socks

The new socks prevent the elder people from falling, as the old people can have several diseases that can cause a lot of falling. The Huge German medical Terumo has announced about the new sock.
The Upwalk brand of socks features different stitching on top and the bottom so that there’s more give on the bottom and more pull on top, resulting in lifted toes. According to the video below, though Japanese folks like to walk around in their socks at home, the Upwalk socks do their magic even while wearing shoes.

Smart spoon for Parkinson’s tremors

People who suffers the Parkinson’s disease have alot of problems when eating, there has been many gadgets invented in the last years, but the new gadget might be the best.
The Liftware spoon constantly steadies itself thanks to an embedded computer that takes the motion signals detected by the sensors, identifies the user’s tremor, and then moves the spoon in the opposite direction of that tremor. The company reports that lab tests showed a more than 70 percent reduction in tremors.

Thomas Edison Fan of Renewable Energy

No comments

The inventor of the light bulb and avid promoter of electricity, Thomas Edison, warned that the world’s supply of coal and gas would someday run out. This warning came in 1931, earlier than those of any modern green activist. The inventor of most of our electric gadgets and certainly the man who brought electricity into every home, saw the far reaching potential of massive usage of the fuel required to create electricity. Naturally, he wanted to ensure that people would be able to continue using inventions such as,, the Thomas Edison light bulb, long after these fossil fuels run out.

To continue developing electricity for the average person, Edison experimented with alternative energies. He built a number of different gadgets designed to work off the grid. He even managed to build a home that contained a number of electric luxuries in 1912, all running off of batteries in the basement. This off the grid home had batteries powered by a gas generator. However, evidence indicated that the inventor eventually wanted to hook up this home to a wind powered turbine.

Edison was so into the idea of wind power that he mocked up ideas for a windmill to charge up batteries and tried to pitch the idea to several manufacturers to build a prototype. In the end, this particular invention was not to be created by Edison. He still advocated the exploration and use of renewable energy to help lead to a sustainable lifestyle.

One famous Thomas Edison quote shows how much he hoped we would explore these sources of energy:

‘We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature’s inexhaustible sources of energy – sun, wind, and tide. I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.’

Edison made this statement in 1931 just weeks before his death to friends, Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone, both men who also benefited from the world’s growing reliance on fossil fuels.

It seems that Edison’s fear did come true in part. We haven’t started using renewable energy in any significant manner until now, a time when the world is close to running out of that vital fuel. Luckily, we’re finding that he was right about it. Solar, wind, and water power all provide immense amounts of energy.

electric Eye Video

Image via Wikipedia

It gives the possibility of providing partial eyesight to blind people. The main component of this device is a chip encased in a titanium cover. The titanium prevents water from damaging the chip. The whole device comes in the form of eye glasses fitted with a camera. This camera is used in the transmission of captured images to the titanium covered chip. As the chip receives transmission from camera.
Many people with poor vision face the problem of swimming in a pool without glasses or contact lenses. The TYR Corrective Optical Performance Goggle is designed for all swimmers, who want to feel at ease, enjoy swimming and seeing everything clearly.
The goggles feature wide-angle optical grade polycarbonate lens that allows having wide vision. Polycarbonate is one of the best choices for sport lenses that is highly impact-resistant. Besides, they are thin and light and offer UV protection. It offers a wide variety of sizes. The goggles have comfortable fit that can be easily adjusted to everyone.
Those lenses are for people, who need eyeglasses with two different strengths. This effect is obtained with bifocals, eye wear with two lenses for near vision and far vision.
The lenses are covered with liquid crystal that changes their reflective index when the electrical charge pass through it. This technology allows changing focal length according to the direction a person is looking at. This happens almost immediately as you press the button manually at the sides of the eyeglasses.
It also adjust focal distance automatically. The eyeglasses have a wider range of settings than bifocal eyeglasses, including far, near and in-between.
Commonly used bifocals are meant for people who need correction to see clearly at different distances. Those lenses overcome the problems of  bifocals such as  headache and dizziness. With new eyeglasses those problems disappear.
