Martin Jetpack Flying Machine

jetpack flying

Watch Video

Well, by both common usage and science it is a jet. We already have jet ski and jet boat. I do not believe that an aviation engineer will be able to convince all those owners to start calling their devices a ‘water pump propelled boats’.

In the end we found that 95% plus of people call it a jetpack when they see it, so why fight that ?

If you have a very narrow view of what a ‘true jetpack’ is (i.e. that it is a pure jet) then none have ever been built. The closest would have been the Bell jet belt, but again this was not a ‘true jet’, it was bypass ratio gas turbine powered. In fact I cannot think of any ‘true jets’ in the GA industry, most are Fanjets.

Perhaps now you see that the ‘correct answer’ is far more complicated and debatable, so much so that normally it is not worth even starting the discussion, because the ‘correct’ answer relates to opinion not fact.

Hydrofloors enable the client to exploit the surface area of a swimming pool

hydrofloor  Hydrofloors enable the client to exploit the surface area of a swimming pool

Hydrofloors® vertically movable floors enable the client to exploit the surface area of a swimming pool by converting the associated terrace or indoor pool room for other uses e.g. recreation, social events, for dining and dancing.

The system is near invisible, flexible, rapidly adaptable and safe, being in compliance with relevant national safety standards. The concept is that the floor height of the pool may be elevated to set at any pre-selected water depth such as wading depth for children or a depth suited to those with special needs. This makes the pool itself diverse and multifunctional

The highest elevated position of the floor is that of the pool surround, at which point the water is out of sight beneath the floor. When fully elevated, the entire area becomes totally safe and secure for children to use. Additionally, since the pool is fully closed, energy costs for heating are greatly reduced.

The central column telescopes out in three stages to take advantage of the wind and the feet and wire guys keep it nice and steady. The base of the central column stores the wires and the batteries and although it’s made of lightweight materials like carbon fiber and aluminum, it will take two or three people to move and set up.

Hoppa two legged dog

dog prostheses

Hoppa the dog was born four years ago without his two front two legs. He was lucky enough to be adopted by Avi Kozi, chairman of Israel’s Society for the Protection of Animals. “From the moment I took him to my house, I knew I had to build something that would help him to move.” Kozi said.

Though it’s not uncommon for dogs to lose the use of their hind legs, problems with the front legs are much more uncommon. This presented a special challenge for Nir Shalom, the art student and animal lover who kindly offered to take on Hoppa’s case.

And take it on he did. Once Hoppa gets the hang of his training wheels (shown in the video below), he will then transition into one of the most advanced dog prostheses around.

New Zealand’s home-made ‘hoverwing’ flies 5 feet above water

hoverwing

Look! Down on the lake … is it a boat, a plane … it’s neither. It’s the “hoverwing”, a hovercraft that flies. New Zealand mechanic Rudy Heeman spent more than 11 years of his spare time (and tens of thousands of dollars) building the hoverwing, a wing-in-ground-effect vehicle that flies on a cushion of pressurized air created between the wing and the water’s surface. Hoverwing can reach an optimum height is 1.5m (4-5ft) above the water and has a current top speed of 98kmh (61mph).

Heeman told the The Nelson Mail that the “hoverwing”, which is almost complete, has drawn local residents from their houses and cars to watch test flights over the Haven in the town of Nelson, at the northern tip of New Zealand’s south island.

Heeman is no stranger to hovercraft – he’s built and sold them for some time. But the hoverwing is his most ambitious project. So ambitious that an early test flight resulted in a crash landing. But it wasn’t enough to deter him from completing the project.

The hoverwing is powered by a modified Subaru car engine while the body comprises most fibreglass.

Ionator – turn your ordinary tap water into household cleaning juice

active ion cleaning

Watch Video

The Science Inside the ionator.

The ionator HOM™ and ionator EXP™ are virtually the only cleaning and sanitizing products in the world without chemical-related health warning labels. The technology driving the ionator products has been used for decades in food processing plants, four-star restaurants, and large hotels. We’ve simply taken this technology, miniaturized it, and made it affordable for everyday use.

1. Charging
A water cell applies a slight electrical charge to the tap water.

2. Transforming
The charged water passes through an ion exchange membrane, creating an oxygen-rich mixture of positive and negative nano-bubbles.

3. Cleaning
The ionized water now attracts dirt like a magnet and lifts it from the surface, enabling it to be easily wiped away.
