New Material Can Convert Waste Heat Directly Into Electricity

New Material Can Convert Waste Heat Directly Into Electricity

For decades, physicists have toyed with ways to convert heat into electricity directly. Materials known as thermoelectrics use temperature differences to drive electrons from one end to another. The displaced electrons create a voltage that can in turn be used to power other things, like a battery. But, existing technologies can turn only 5–7% of heat energy into electricity. So, building a better thermoelectric totally depends on finding materials that conduct electricity, but not heat. Recently, some scientists at Northwestern University have created a new material from lead telluride and believes that the material is able to convert waste heat to electricity.

Multitasking Diminish Focus And Productivity, Research Shows

Multitasking Diminish Focus And Productivity, Research Shows

Today’s corporate snobs are always busy doing multiple things simultaneously, aka multitasking. But, are we really that productive by taking on multiple things at the same time? Research says, no. Human brain can divide resources easily and equally for two tasks, but it faces difficulty while doing more than two tasks at a time. That means, the more we delve into multitasking, the less productive we become. The human brain is incapable of performing numerous tasks without memory and productivity loss.

Hopeless Baby Comprehends Life’s Realities Within Six Days

Hopeless Baby Comprehends Life’s Realities Within Six Days

We have been told, times and again, of the rapid technological development and the affects it has on our lives. With everything speeding up, thanks to the dual and quad culture, it seems that the newborn babies are also being influenced. This is manifest in a singular newborn infant who has been able to conclude that we, as a race, are hopeless, within the first six days of his life.

Researchers Unearthed World’s First Color Film Footage

Researchers of UK’s National Media Museum have claimed that they have found world’s first color moving pictures footage. According to the BBC, Edward Raymond Turner first made this footage as a test purpose in 1902, where he shot images of marching soldiers, birds and his children in the garden of their home in Hounslow. The film discovered by Michael Harvey, Curator of Cinematography at the National Media Museum from a tin. The film was stain in the tin for 110 years.

Full Result Of Higgs Boson Experiments Have Been Published : Have You Read?

On July 4, 2012, scientists/physicists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) announced that they have discovered Higgs Boson, the ‘God particle’. It’s being called ‘God Particle’ because the particle is believed to be the key to unifying the standard and quantum models of physics. After that, many experiments were done in August to be more sure. Recently, full result of Higgs Boson has been published officially.

Breakthrough Face Paint Protects Soldiers’ Skin From Bomb Blasts

Breakthrough Face Paint Protects Soldiers’ Skin From Bomb Blasts

For soldiers’ in a battlefield, one of the hardest things to protect, without restricting vision or breathing, is the face. Regular camouflage face paint, with its oil and wax base layers, makes things worse. So, scientists at the University of Southern Mississippi have developed a new version of face paint which can protect soldiers’ skin from explosions and heat of up to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit.

Scientists Hack Into Human Brain To Obtain Personal Data With A $299 Device

Scientists Hack Into Human Brain To Obtain Personal Data With A $299 Device

Scientists have been working on ways through which the thoughts of a person can be accurately ‘read’ with the help of brain-computer interfaces. Until now, they have had little success. But now, scientists have successfully been able to read the subject’s thoughts and even retrieve important data simply with help of signals from his brain.
