How to know your EGG is half boiled

medium_negg31.jpg

The eggs are marked with logos in "thermochromic" invisible ink, which turns dark when it reaches a certain temperature.

Inks have been created to appear after three minutes to indicate a soft-boiled egg, after four minutes for medium and after seven minutes for a hard-boiled egg.

Shoppers will be able to buy the eggs of their choice in cartons marked "soft", "medium" or "hard".

The project was launched by the quality assurance scheme Lion Quality Eggs in response to thousands of people asking how to boil eggs properly.

Nano Technology

Paint-on semiconductor outperforms chips from PhysOrg.com
Researchers at the University of Toronto have created a semiconductor device that outperforms today's conventional chips -- and they made it simply by painting a liquid onto a piece of glass. The finding, which represents the first time a so-called "wet" semiconductor device has bested traditional, more costly grown-crystal semiconductor devices, is reported in the July 13 issue of the journal Nature.

The magic spoon

What is a spoon and not a spoon? A MIT design project to put sensors to a spoon, a traditional untensil, to measure temperature, acidity, salinity and viscosity through a cable to a computer. So a single scoop of the spoon will tell what are the properties of it immediately.

Hey wait, put a wireless chip in it and let it detect posion, unhealty food, too hot food etc., like in ancient times using a silver needle to test for posion in food.

George Margolin

An Inventor Never Grows Up By "Curious George" Margolin

Edison said that nine words are the keys to invention, the key to youth, and the key to a happy and productive life. He said, "If you never grow up - you'll never grow old." To some of us, they may be the most important words in the English language.

 .

But the worst thing we do to our young minds, is that we teach them FACTS! And here I'm not talking about the "fact" that ignoring the dangers of gravity when you're standing too close to the edge of a cliff can kill you, or that fire can hurt you if you get too close. I'm talking about the "fact" that we teach our children that "facts" are irrefutable, unchangeable, unchanging and unquestionable. This leads many of us to a belief system that puts US in the box.

Read this at America's Inventor.

Bendable Clock

 

 E Ink announced the demonstration of the world's first flexible clock using an electronic paper display (EPD). This unique clock offers a thin, lightweight, fully flexible form factor combined with substantially lower power consumption over traditional displays through its use of E Ink Imaging FilmTM.

With a thickness of 3.0 mm, a weight of 1.5 kg and a battery life that is 20 times longer than conventional digital clocks, this revolutionary clock also can be bent significantly while operating. Furthermore, the use of electronic ink in the clock display enables a wide viewing angle of approximately 180 degrees with a bright, high contrast look, allowing for high visibility in either a dim room or under direct sunlight. These benefits allow the clock to be installed in locations that would otherwise be difficult with other technologies.

1. Identify the Problem

  • The Environment
  • Resoure requirements
  • Primary functions
  • Harmful effects
  • Ideal Result.

2. Formulate the Problem

  • State the problem in Physical contradictions
  • Identify new problem when solution is introduce
  • Techical conflicts that forces a trade off

3. Search for previously Well-Solved Problem

  • Use the 39 contradiction matrix

4. Look for Analogous Solutions and Adapt to problem solution

Eli Whitney

Eli Whitney - the inventor of the cotton gin

As Eli Whitney left New England and headed South in 1792, he had no idea that within the next seven months he would invent a machine that would profoundly alter the course of American history. A recent graduate of Yale, Whitney had given some thought to becoming a lawyer. But, like many college graduates of today, he had debts to repay first and needed a job. Reluctantly, he left his native Massachusetts to assume the position of private tutor on a plantation in Georgia. ......

Paper Money Invention

Paper Money:

China, Ninth Century AD. Its original name was 'flying money' because it was so light it could blow out of one's hand. As 'exchange certificates' used by merchants, paper money was quickly adopted by the government for forwarding tax payments. Real paper money, used as a medium of exchange and backed by deposited cash (a Chinese term for metal coins), apparently came into use in the tenth century. The first Western money was issued in Sweden in 1661. America followed in 1690, France in 1720, England in 1797, and Germany not until 1806.

BAD Innovation


..........................


A gun with no sound, no heat, no explosive gunpowder, no jams, a gun that fire metal balls(projectiles) up to 8000 feet per second at a rate of 120,000 rounds per minute. Such powerful weapon should not be invented.
