Pyramid Generator Runs 12W Fan

Austrian inventor Flavio Thomas (Trawoger) points out that the energy capture circuits are positioned in the geometric center of the pyramid. The materials that the pyramid is made from are less important for its function.

Newly Discovered Magnetic Material 18% Stronger Than Any Other Known Magnet

Jian-Ping Wang, a materials physicist from the University of Minnesota in Twin Cities, and his colleagues have produced a material that is 18% more magnetic than the most magnetic material known to this day. They have been able to produce a combination of eight parts iron, one part nitrogen. The resulted material has the formula Fe16N2 and its extremely high magnetism lies in its complicated crystalline structure.

NIST`s First Magnetic Refrigerator: Quieter, More Energy Efficient

As an addition to yesterday’s passive, solar powered air conditioning article, I found out today that NIST researchers (in collaboration with Chinese scientists) have a strong word to say in refrigeration technology that could revolutionize the inside components and operating cycle of that electricity guzzling, big, old fridge of yours. Well, ok, it may not be as old as I said, but the idea behind it surely is.
