Use the Ephemeral Roof Exchange For Hong Kong Boundary Crossing

The designers Steven Ma, Wendy Fok, and Dominik Strzelec have developed an Ephemeral roof exchange concept. It is not only used for creating functional crossing the boundary of Hong Kong and Zhuhai, but also used for a great aesthetics of the concept that makes it a symbol of the intermediary relation between sky and land. It is a three-point access system that is able to provide an entry diversion through stunning landscape to be experienced by the visitors when arriving into and departing from the Airport. The three different entry points are relevant to the sustainable technologies like Hydro, Solar and piezoelectrical energy concept. At the same time, the edges of the dynamic roof System of the concept makes the concept simply superb and unique from other concept. Look at the images given here.

The designers of the concept say:
Three point energy collection points are each representational to the location and orientation of the site. The Solar Photovoltaic Louvres with a South Orientation is designed for the Hong Kong/ Kowloon exchange entrance that dually uses the natural heat and sun light from the Hong Kong and supporting area as the secondary energy source that is collected into the system of the energy roof system. A Hydro Collective System designed with humidity and rain water collectors recycles hydro-energy to provide a cooling system for the waiting guests locates itself within HK/Macao/Zhuhai Terminal. While the Piezoelectrical system is a self sustainable energy system embedded into the asphalt and landscaping throughout the site that recycles and reuses the evanescent nature of sound and vibrational energy collected from the numerous passing vehicles during the border crossing as a cast-off form of energy.

Each energy system interrelates to a larger sphere which contributes and infiltrates throughout the site. Just like the iconic flower which grows from the soil of the motherland, the energy from the site harvests itself as a form innate energy that provides to the foundation of the site and future development of the exchange point. Essentially, energy would be collected from both roof and ground designed technologies.

The iconic nature of the design is developed hand-in-hand with a strong hold on sustainable concerns to strive into making this the most sustainable transportation exchange hub in the world.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications. The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou

Google Health Login Page is Ready!

Google's Marissa Mayer announced that the Google Health will be launched on 2008. The service of the Google Health Login Page is ready. It's only the first intro page is displayed and I didn't get passed to the next page. In the same page y0u can see the information displaying on the Google Health. If you point your mouse on the below link you can visit the Google Health Page With Google Health, you can: * Build online health profiles that belong to you * Download medical records from doctors and pharmacies * Get personalized health guidance and relevant news * Find qualified doctors and connect to time-saving services * Share selected information with family or caregivers This will be a nice development about caring health and this will helps in having some cautious about health.
