July 11, 2016 - Assuming Superman can fly for over eight (8) hours at constant altitude—and absorb energy from our yellow sun like a solar cell—the Man of Steel couldn’t possibly take in enough sunlight to power his flight while obeying the Law of Conservation of Energy, unless he were to have a “staggeringly impossible” solar cell efficiency of 656,000%.
July 11, 2016 - If you read our news Please pee on my socks... I need to make a call, then you already know urine can be transformed into electricity with the help of bacterial metabolism. Now researchers have upped the ante with a full-blown public urinal at the U.K.’s Glastonbury music festival.
July 11, 2016 - The just-published “New World Atlas of Artificial Night Sky Brightness” documents the degree to which the world is illuminated by artificial skyglow.
July 8, 2016 - From a distance, it looks like someone used giant rainbow Lego blocks to erect the building on Decarie Boulevard in Montreal: Glen Site, the newest addition to the sweeping McGill University Health Centre (MUHC). From a pneumatic tube system behind the walls to robotic dispensing machines, this high-tech facility goes well beyond its simple Lego-like appearance.
July 7, 2016 - Saint-Laurent, Quebec-based Standard Products provides lighting solutions to the commercial, industrial and residential markets through the professional electrical and lighting channel.
April 14, 2016 - Following an extensive lighting retrofit project, Players Paradise Indoor Sports Facility in Stoney Creek, Ont. is $20,782 richer thanks to a Horizon Utilities incentive.
April 9, 2016 - Experimental physicists at Saarland University say they have developed a cable security solution that—underpinned by the Earth’s magnetic field—issues warnings to, say, a smartphone, whenever it registers a change in field strength... as when a burglar sneaks onto your property.
March 31, 2016 - According to researchers, a “world’s first” 20kW wireless electric vehicle charging system demonstrated at Oak Ridge National Laboratory has achieved 90% efficiency at 3X the rate of the plug-in systems commonly used for electric vehicles today.
March 23, 2016 - A team of engineers from Saarland University are developing intelligent motor systems that reveal their health without requiring additional sensors by, essentially, transforming the motors themselves into sensors.
March 12, 2016 - Ice build-up on your car is a nuisance, but can be downright dangerous on a powerline or wind turbine, and removing it with current methods—usually chemical melting agents, or scrapers and hammers—is difficult and expensive work. But that may soon change.
March 10, 2016 - According to stakeholders, technological breakthroughs in the TREASORES project will lead to cheaper lighting and flexible solar cells.
February 12, 2016 - Seneca College and Siemens Canada say they are helping Canadian manufacturing take a positive step in addressing the technical skills gap with the opening of Ontario’s first Mechatronics Simulation & Demonstration Centre (MSDC), which was officially launched today.
February 1, 2016 - Pedestrians feel safer in streets illuminated with White light than in those illuminated with ‘Sodium-Yellow’’, even when the former may be more polluting in certain aspects.
January 24, 2016 - “Homeowners have indicated a strong preference for functionality, accessibility and sustainability over the last 10 years, and architects expect that to accelerate,” said Kermit Baker, chief economist with the American Institute of Architects.
January 22, 2016 - University of Nebraska-Lincoln professor of civil engineering Chris Tuan has added a pinch of steel shavings and a dash of carbon particles to a concrete slab to create self-melting concrete.
