Unique Project in London, Repair and Reuse your Broken Gadgets





Technicians, repairers, engineers and technology enthusiasts are volunteering to undertake repairs of broken gadgets in Primrose Hill District of London. These volunteers are part of the ‘Restart Project’, an innovative initiative by adoptive Londoners, Italian Ugo Vallauri and a British American Janet Gunter. These two concerned persons, on return to the West after working in the developing world, found the amount of waste being generated and decided to do something about it. Under the banner of ‘Restart Project’, with the slogan of “Don’t Despair, Repair”, volunteers gather for “Restart Parties”, as these meets are called, and help repair the broken gadget brought by the visitors.


The repair services are free for all broken gadgets except for large items. Along with the goal of reducing the environmental impact of the waste, the other objectives are to make people understand about how the everyday devices work, promoting the skilled local repairers’ work and re-adopt the tradition of ‘make do and mend’ philosophy. The organizers are also helping in providing guidance and answering queries to replicate the idea elsewhere in Britain and abroad.

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…
