Hydrogel Adhesive: Healing Wounds

2020-04-01T11:01:38-07:00

Cuts, scrapes, blisters, burns, splinters, and punctures there are a number of ways broken skin happens, Hydrogel Adhesive helps. Most treatments for skin wounds involve simply placing a barrier over them (usually an adhesive gauze bandage). This keeps it moist, limit pain, and reduces exposure to infectious microbes. A new, scalable approach to speeding up wound healing, developed based on heat-responsive hydrogels. Mechanically active, stretchy, tough, highly adhesive, and antimicrobial, active adhesive dressings (AADs). To close wounds significantly faster than other methods and prevent bacterial growth without additional apparatus or stimuli. https://glewengineering.com/engineers-add-new-updates-to-medical-advances-2019/ [...]

Engineers Develop Personal Robots – New Age

2019-09-13T15:16:02-07:00

Engineers Say Personal Robotics Will Become an Important New Category in Family Lives  I have the idea of a “sociable” robot—one that people can have relatively natural interactions with—has been the lore of science fiction for decades. From Lost in Space to Star Wars to WallE and beyond, interactive robotic machines have been the stuff of our creative imagination for some time. In 2019, however, I believe we will start to see more practical implementations of personal robotics devices from several major tech vendors. While several companies have tried, and failed to [...]

Part 1: Mechanical Engineers Say Driverless Cars are the “New Talk of the Town”

2019-09-13T15:16:56-07:00

Major giants inside the automobile industry have already show cased few of their self-driving car technology and many car companies aim to roll out production vehicles with driverless capabilities by 2020. In just a few years, industry experts expect fully autonomous vehicles to follow the trendThe implications autonomous driving will have on insurance matters and legal outcomes of accidents is just one grey area to be explored as we move towards a more automated future. Experts are making some big claims about the future impacts of driverless cars. Before they arrive, [...]

Mechanical Engineers Design Smart Homes

2019-09-13T15:20:38-07:00

What is a Connected Smart Home? A connected Smart Home brings devices and services together for an integrated, autonomous experience that improves a consumer’s life.  Connected home experiences include everything from voice-controlled lights, house-cleaning robots, machine learning-enabled security cameras, and WiFi routers that troubleshoot for you. Thanks to decreasing costs and increasing options for connectivity, these smart home devices, sensors, and tools can be interlinked to create real-time, contextual, and smart experiences for consumers. Both Mechanical Engineers and Electrical Engineers design these products for more convenient and enhanced experiences.

Material Engineers : A Pipedream?  Solar-powered cars have been thought of by many as an impossible pipedream. But the innovators behind, a fully solar-powered vehicle to be released in 2019.  GOING FULLY SOLAR A Car whose ability to use solar power has been thought of as an impossible feat.  Designed by the Dutch startup Lightyear, the “car that charges itself” can supposedly drive for months without charging and has a 400 – 800 km range. But is a solar-powered car feasible?Up until now fully solar-powered cars were not considered a realistic prospect, [...]

Engineers Test “CHP” – Combined Heat and Power

2019-09-13T14:48:52-07:00

Figure 1. Self Sufficient Home with Combined Heat and Power Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Engineers combined heat and power (CHP) systems, also known as cogeneration, generate electricity and useful thermal energy in a single, integrated system. CHP is not a technology, but an approach to applying technologies. Heat that is normally wasted in conventional power generation is recovered as useful energy, which avoids the losses that would otherwise be incurred from separate generation of heat and power. While the conventional method of producing usable heat and power separately has [...]
