Visa Europe makes investment in Emue Technologies
Emue has been working closely with Visa Europe over the past 18 months to develop the Visa CodeSure solution which provides authentication and transaction security through a unique payment card with embedded display, microprocessor and numeric keypad. With multiple banks already piloting Visa CodeSure in the UK, Switzerland, Italy and Israel, today’s announcement that Visa Europe has taken a stake in Emue Technologies confirms the significant interest in this product by Visa’s member banks in the UK and other European markets.

John Kanzius Inventor – Water Fuel Cell – Cancer Treatment

John Kanzius Water Fuel Cell/Cancer Treatment

John Kanzius, while researching a way to treat cancer & other diseases, stumbled a across the same principal as Stan Meyer’s Water Fuel Cell. Unlike Meyer’s device, which uses submerged stainless steel electrodes in a common feed stock of water, Mr. Kanzius’ device doesn’t make contact with the water — it pulses relatively low energy across an area, such as the human body, which is made of mostly water, or across a test tube of salt water. The salt in the water helps catalyze the process (by increasing the conductivity of the water).

The device can also be looked at as a water capacitor. Water is the feed stock and the pulses (electrical & radio waves) disassociate the hydrogen & oxygen atoms by magnetically stretching apart the atoms through constant magnetic excitation. Parallel plates, or circular or spiral electrodes or transducers all have the ability to tap energy from the quantum flux field. When these devices are used with water such as John Kanzius’ device, the energy from the quantum flux field is tapped into, then trapped by the water, turning it into a charged gas of diatomic & monatomic hydrogen & oxygen atoms, in a mixture of hydrated electrons. When combusted, the plasma implosion/explosion forms back into pure water. The plasma gas is a stoichiometric blend that is perfect for combustion applications.

This device behaves very similarly to Stan Meyer’s Electron Extraction Circuit (which uses lasers), and is the key electronic mechanism which makes his device a true water fuel cell, because the EEC produces an electrical current. The transducers, which face each other, vibrate a high radio frequency (in the ~20KHZ-200KHZ region). The power is low enough not to cause bodily harm, so is perhaps less than 200 watts. Since there is little if any heat build up between the working transducers, the excess energy exhibited with the Brown’s gas can not be traced, thus pointing to the quantum vacuum as the source of free energy.

John Kanzius’ device may be the same explanation for the technology behind the Segway inventor, Dean Kaman’s newest invention, the WATER PURIFIER.

Narrow track vehicles – the convergence of the car and the motorcycle

narrow track vehicles

.

Sitting in Nissan’s Landglider was an experience, I’d been looking forward to it since I first spied the pre-show imagery – this truly is near the point where the motorcycle and automobile meet. It’s a two passenger vehicle, one behind the other, it’s half the width of a conventional car and it leans through corners like a motorcycle.

Being fully enclosed and with impact absorption zones and a composite protection tub, the Land Glider’s pilot is a lot less vulnerable than a motorcycle rider, yet the Land Glider’s light weight and the punchy electric motors mean a motorcycle-like torque to weight ratio for quick acceleration and the steer-by-wire system leans the Land Glider up to 17 degrees – it may not be the 45 degree plus of a sports motorcycle, and the proof-of-concept will surely be in the driving experience as to how drive-by-wire feels in comparison to the mechanical systems we’re all accustomed to, but it’s more than enough to have safe, low-speed fun commuting to the office.

The Land Glider is one of a wave of new single track concept vehicles being shown by auto makers this year as they begin preparing for yet another looming crisis for the auto industry – Global Traffic Congestion!

Red lights count down to green

eko light  Red lights count down to green

eko light

We’ve got the stoplights in our neighborhood timed pretty well, but it’s pretty painful when you’re at a foreign intersection and have absolutely no idea when the light will turn green. We shift our vehicle into Neutral and give our left foot a break at a stoplight that we know is long, but at uncharted lights, we occasionally keep our clutch foot to the floor.

One designer by the name of Damjan Stankovic decided we should wait no longer, so he designed an innovative-looking “Eko” stoplight that offers an easy to read indicator that shows how much time the light has until it turns green. The idea has some merit. If you want to conserve fuel and reduce CO2 emissions, you could turn off your engine during truly long lights. (We wouldn’t, but you could). If drivers were able to see the light from far away, they could also let off the accelerator early and save a little strain on the brakes. We can think of one big issue, though: drivers trying to time the turn from red to green.

Open your Mercedes with your iphone mbrace app

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.

High Tech oil spill solution oil busting robots

oil capture how it works

There are some new bots called OSP on the drawing board. Using advance robotics, these guys autonomously work together to contain an oil spill by surrounding it with an inflatable barrier. Once contained, clean-up crews can jump in and suck the oil out. After reading this, my Roomba just quit.  The faster a spill can be dealt with – the better the outcome.
