1. Keep up with the readings, lectures, and assignments. Think of school as a race. If you rest, you end up being behind. But if you know how to pace yourself, you can end up at the desired goal. Even better is if you are ahead, you won’t have to worry….
A US company has developed a new device that can be used with a hot cup of coffee or a cold beer mug to charge your cell phone battery. The company claims that the two-sided Epiphany onE Puckconverts the warmth of your hot cocoa or iced beverage into power for your phone. The device is also very lightweight and portable that you ca store it in your purse or bag in case of emergencies.
Gizmag reported that the device works using a Stirling engine powered solely by heat disparities to generate the electricity to keep your cell phone running. In 1816 Stirling engines were actually invented for steam engine but its use was limited to low-power applications for a long time.
Epiphany Labs is using latest and modern materials to use the same technology in a different way because as you see in the picture the size is very small where as before it was larger than we imagined. The working prototype of the Epiphany onE Puck is not much larger than the bottom of a cup, so it’s small enough to carry around easily.
Feature Of Epiphany onE Puck
Device has two side blue side for cold drinks and a red side for hot drinks.
USB port that can charge any device that draws 1000 mA or less.
iPhones, Androids, iPods and other USB-based devices.
Epiphany Labs claims that this device will charge your cell phone at the same speed as you would charge using electricity. It will also work in less-than-ideal conditions, but if you are not placing a fresh hot drink on the Puck, you will have to wait a little longer for your device to receive a full charge. Currently the company has a prototype of this device but will soon be on production.
What did 2012 look like on New York City’s subways? From video journalist Rebecca Davis’s perspective, it was a mix of loneliness, intimacy, exhaustion, and, of course, smart phone-gazing. Davis’s video Commuters 2012 is a voyeuristic glimpse of life in New York’s connective tissue, the subway—hundreds of snapshots of regular people living their lives underground, selected from more than 3,000 photos she took last year.
