JFE Quick Charging Station for electric car

Posted by surfingall on May 9, 2010


When it comes to saving the nature from natural and man made calamities, electric cars will play a huge role in it, at least one day. Because the electric cars will provide zero harm to the environment but they have one small problem and that is “recharging”.

Recharging has always been a problem with all our portable devices and gadgets like mobiles. The recharging process can take some time with ordinary devices, like just think how much time does it take to fully recharge a single electric car? It takes a lot more time than charging your cell phone, that’s for sure. This is the main reason for not using electric cars instead of ordinary cars. Electric cars could be used for smaller distances, such as going to the shop but not for a long hour drive.

Well people from JFE Engineering Corp might have solution to this recharging problem, and that solution is called charging station. This Charging station should put an end to long recharge time of your car by allowing it to be recharged to 50% in only three minutes. With this speed of charging you’ll save a lot of your time and money with these super charger stations. But to use these chargers, you’ll have to make certain modifications to your cars software and system.

One more thing to be noted is, these stations are not cheap and one of these could cost $63,000, so they aren’t going to be widely used, at least not yet.

Posted by surfingall on May 4, 2010


The Sony Ericsson Satio was created to bring the best and most popular features of Sony Ericsson phones, ie the Walkman and Cybershot series.

Mobile 3-D

Posted by surfingall on May 3, 2010


The Samsung B710 phone looks like a typical smart phone, but something unexpected happens when the screen is moved from a vertical to a horizontal orientation: the image jumps from 2-D to 3-D.

The technology that produces this perception of depth is the work of Julien Flack, CTO of Dynamic Digital Depth, who has spent more than a decade perfecting software that can convert 2-D content to 3-D in real time. It could help solve the biggest problem with 3-D: the need for special glasses that deliver a separate image to each eye. Flack’s software synthesizes 3-D scenes from existing 2-D video by estimating the depth of objects using various cues; a band of sky at the top of a frame probably belongs in the far background, for example.

Diamonds So Hot They Produce Electricity!

Posted by surfingall on May 1, 2010


Diamonds are getting hot enough to generate electricity! Bristol lab physicist Neil Fox spends his day manipulating delicate films of diamonds as thin as a human hair. Fox aims to turn these diamond films into a new kind of solar cell, one that generates electricity by absorbing heat rather than visible-light wavelengths. He is exploiting “thermionic emission”, the propensity of some materials to spit out electrons when heated, and it turns out that ultra thin diamond is better at this than most, reports New Scientist.
