Scientists develop solar-powered light-emitting cement with a life of 100 years

WASHINGTON: Scientists have created a new light-emitting cement that could last a hundred years and illuminate roads, highways or bicycle lanes at night by absorbing solar energy during the day.Currently, the cement exists in blue or green colour, and the light intensity can be regulated to avoid dazzling drivers. INGREDIENTS : Sand, dust or clay have been used to make the material which has turned into the gel and the material is made out of sand, dust or clay that becomes the gel and the only residue of its production is water vapour, researchers said. “The main issue was that cement is an opaque […]

Futuristic ‘Cyber Garden’ Can Roll Itself Around to Keep Plants Alive

On the off chance that you experience difficulty keeping plants alive, you might be gladdened by the presence of this independent moving Cyber garder sphere (not its actually name) from the Interactive Architecture Lab. The “urban cyber-gardener,” as its makers have alluded to it, contains 12 garden modules that can contain diverse plants, and can conform themselves keeping in mind the end goal to get pretty much daylight, and it is encompassed by an exoskeleton that can move itself around to discover ideal plant-developing conditions. To the extent robots go, we really trust this one gets to be aware and […]

MAKING OF AN ENGINEERING MARBLE – BANDRA WORLI SEA LINK

The Bandra-Worli Sea Link (BWSL) is a civil engineering marvel spanning an arc of the Mumbai coastline. With its cable-stayed towers soaring gracefully skywards, the sea link is a reflection of the modern infrastructure that Mumbai is adding in its progress towards becoming a world-class city. The BWSL project is a part of the Western Freeway Sea Project. The Bandra-Worli Sea Link is primarily meant to provide an alternative to the Mahim Causeway route that is presently the only connection between South Mumbai and the Western and Central suburbs. The project has been commissioned by the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation Ltd […]

You can change the color of your clothes instantly by using ‘Smart threads’

The technology is called Ebb and it looks like we are not only able to instantly be able to change the colour of our shirt, but it even seems possible that we could change the logo on it. Ever gone out and instantly lamented your choice of pastel shirt? All things considered, another shading changing string created by Scientists in the US could soon make that feeling a thing of the past- and could likewise open up the likelihood of utilizing our articles of clothing as material presentations we wear on our bodies.  Not just might you be able to change […]

World’s tiniest Programmable DNA Thermometer

University of Montreal’s Scientists has developed a programmable DNA thermometer which  is 20,000x smaller than a human hair.  Past one decades, scientists discovered that the DNA molecules which is used to encode a genetic information.”In a few years, biochemists also discovered that biomolecules such as proteins or RNA (a molecule similar to DNA) are employed as nanothermometers in living organisms and report temperature variation by folding or unfolding,” this said by senior author Prof. Alexis Vallée-Bélisle.”Inspired by those natural nanothermometers, which are typically 20,000x smaller than a human hair, we have created various DNA structures that can fold and unfold at specifically defined temperatures.” One […]
