Our favorite airship is due to take to the skies once again and with a spotted test history its being closely watch by many! After a rather unfortunate nosedive in august last year the Airlander has yet to grace the skies since.
Don't you always hate it when you have a machine designed with wear-parts that cost a fortune to replace? Well Sunshine Sugar sure do. They have a machine that removes unwanted packaging from sugar products up to 100,000 times a day, only the arms that remove the packaging need replacing regularly, and the OEM supplier is charging a cool $1400 ($1000 US) for the privilege.
Solar Roadways, is it doable?
An Idaho based company has come up with a novel product to make our roads safer; the solar roadway. This takes the standard solar panel and re-engineers it to become a durable, truck proof, self-illuminated paving block capable of replacing the standard asphalt we see everywhere.
The solar roads are designed with benefits over traditional concrete and asphalt, such as in-built LEDs for safety, pot-hole free (that one’s a big plus!), easy maintenance, protects wildlife and of course due to the generated electricity, a return on investment.
