Beat the heat with the new concept of solar shirt

The scientists developed a concept of staying cool in the hot summer days.  They invented the concept of “solar shirt” for summer that keep the body cool with solar cells and fans to protect from the heat.  A photovoltaic specialist in engineering and design systems, Santpada Gon Chaudhury said, “We are trying to develop technology to fix small solar cells either into the fiber of a shirt or in its pocket”.   The scientist claims that the solar cells of 2.5 to 3 inches will generate approx. 400 watts of power, which means the energy equivalent to the powerful energy used to charge mobile phones and other electronic devices.

They explained that the fans instilled inside the shirt will be smaller to the fans in a computer.  The energy is powered by the solar cells once the person is outside in the sun.  Hence 400 watts of power is enough to charge the fans.  This shirt will be of benefit in the sun for short periods of time.  Questioning about the price, Gon Chaudhury said the cost factor will be a bare minimum, with the shirt costing around Rs 1600.  He dismissed any harm caused to the human body by the solar cells.

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…

How to Automatically Convert any RSS Feed to an iPhone Web app!

For iPhone users this is another web app which converts any well formed XML RSS feed to an iPhone version. It is possible because it is worked with the typical sliding style interface to suit the iPhone optimized version. For instance if you had the iPhone right now here is the Google News Feed

Jim Liddle, one of the creators of the service, told iPhone Atlas “You can book mark the generated site and use it to host your own content and reference it from your own. It seems that these feed on your iPhone is quiet usable.
