    drinking water conewater cone

    watercone drinking water

    Solar thermal desalination – front and forward technology to generate drinking water, based exclusively on salt water and solar energy.

    The Watercone® is a solar powered water desalinator that takes salt or brackish water and generates freshwater. It is simple to use, lightweight and mobile. The technology is simple in design and use and is discribed by simple pictograms. With up to 1,7 liters (nearly 2 quarts) in 24h the Watercone® is an ideal device to cover a child`s daily need of freshwater. UNICEF: “every day 5000 children die as a result of diarrhea coused by drinking unsafe water”

    Philosophy of the Watercone® concept:
    „Many peripheral, de-centralized small units will ensure a better supply of freshwater than one central big generator. If the big one fails, there is no water generation for anyone. If a small one fails, the other ones still keep on working.“

    8 Medical iPhone Apps You Should Prescribe to Your Health Care Professional

    iphonemonitor  8 Medical iPhone Apps You Should Prescribe to Your Health Care Professional

    It’s a safe bet that one of your doctors has an iPhone. But what you may not realize is that he or she is using it as part of your overall treatment. From reading APGAR scores to x-rays, there is a fascinating array of health-care tech available in app form. Some are created by savvy developers, while others are built out of necessity by the doctors. Currently, the FDA has no over-arching regulation in place for mobile medical apps, despite the fact that they have indicated in the past that under certain circumstances the iPhone may be considered a medical device and therefore regulated as one, according to a report by Brian Dolan on Mobihealthnews.

    “Many medical imaging software applications are considered medical devices and, as such, are regulated by the FDA,” says Justin Dearborn, CEO of Merge Healthcare. “FDA regulations mandate that rigorous processes must be followed during software development, productization, and maintenance.” Dedicated resources, domain knowledge and familiarity with standards allow companies such as Merge to speed up the submission process, but approval varies by product and the process to get an app to market, as outlined on the FDA’s Web site, is a rigorous one.

    Piano Stairs – Making it fun for people to use the stairs

    This site is dedicated to the thought that something as simple as fun is the easiest way to change people’s behaviour for the better. Be it for yourself, for the environment, or for something entirely different, the only thing that matters is that it’s change for the better.

    Take the stairs instead of the escalator or elevator and feel better is something we often hear or read in the Sunday papers. Few people actually follow that advice. Can we get more people to take the stairs over the escalator by making it fun to do?

    Open your Mercedes with your iphone mbrace app

    hughesmercedesdoorlock  Open your Mercedes with your iphone mbrace app

    hughes mercedes door lock

    Hughes Telematics recently announced its partnership with Mercedes-Benz on the automaker’s new line of “mbrace” mobile telematics solutions. The system, which connects mbrace-equipped vehicles with an app installed on the user’s Apple iPhone or RIM Blackberry, allows people to lock and unlock their doors, contact roadside assistance, get in touch with a local dealer or find their vehicle in a crowded parking lot. It’s a relatively trick technology that we spent some time with at the LA Auto Show, and there’s plenty of potential on the horizon.
    Although the functionality is pretty basic so far, it’s seamlessly integrated with the vehicle and covers the most essential elements of telematics setup.

    The user logs in and enters a pin (required every time you use the app for security and safety reasons) and then can choose between three tabs:

    • Vehicle: Lock and unlock doors, vehicle location and assistance
    • Dealer: Contact a local dealer or find one nearby
    • Account: Manage your account with M-B, make payments, etc.

    The interface on the iPhone is decidedly more sexy than the Blackberry – no surprise considering the age of RIM’s OS – but both systems work as advertised and the potential for expansion is easy to envision.

    Hughes representatives hinted at the possibility of diagnostic, maintenance reminders and a summary of daily driving information (mpg, fuel efficiency, miles traveled, etc.), along with integration with the vehicle’s navigation system to find preferred routes to and from a location based on traffic conditions. Nothing revolutionary, but that’s not what it’s about – it’s about integration. The rest will flow as the systems get more complex and assimilated into the vehicle’s internal systems. Naturally, there’s plenty of talk about lifestyle applications, covering music, messaging, note-taking and other seemingly simple programs currently available on most smartphones.
