An all-electric vehicle that never needs to be plugged in

Electric cars carrying receiving coils could charge themselves with embedded transmitting coils in the roadways.

When you think of an all-electric car you may picture it cruising down the highway, emitting little noise and no noxious fumes. It’s such an improvement that you have to wonder why only a handful of all-electric vehicles are now available on the mass market.

New device captures ambient energy from the air to power small electronic devices

Energy3

Professor Manos Tentzeris displays an inkjet-printed rectifying antenna used to convert microwave energy to DC power.

Researchers have found a way to capture and harness energy transmitted by such sources as radio and television transmitters, cell phone networks and satellite communications systems. By getting this ambient energy from the air around us, the technique could provide a new way to power networks of wireless sensors, microprocessors and communications chips.

Study Finds Cellphone Use Tied to Changes in Brain Activity

cell phone and the brain

Researchers from the National Institutes of Health have found that less than an hour of cellphone use can speed up brain activity in the area closest to the phone antenna, raising new questions about the health effects of low levels of radiation emitted from cellphones.

Massive Solar Flare Could Cause Global Chaos in 2013

solar flare

The sun’s solar flares could endanger human life by interfering with high-tech systems such as satellites and power grids.

A massive solar flare could paralyze Earth in 2013, causing blackouts and wrecking satellite communications, a conference heard yesterday. Nasa has warned that a peak in the sun’s magnetic energy cycle and the number of sun spots or flares around 2013 could generate huge radiation levels.

Your Boxspring Could Be Giving You Cancer By Acting As A Giant, Radiation-Emitting Antenna

Radiation-box-spring

Breast cancer is more likely to occur on the left side than on the right.

A Swedish study is trying to nail down the reason that cancer is 10% more likely to occur in the left breast over the right, on top of the steadily increasing risk of cancer over last 30 years. One theory? Your box spring could be a giant, radiation-emitting antenna.

Electro-pulse cannon stops cars in their tracks

Today’s cars are so full of computerized electronics, one serious electromagnetic pulse could stop any car built after the mid-’70s in an instant. Canadian company Eureka Aerospace might be able to do that with its High-Powered Electromagnetic System (HPEMS). It’s a suitcase-sized electromagnetic pulse (EMP) cannon that immediately disables a car or truck from 656 feet away without hurting the driver or innocent bystanders. (Video)

Microwaves May Be Harmful During Pregnancy

Microwaves harmful to unborn baby 

It is hard to believe but true that the microwave oven you use to make food could be harmful to your unborn child, especially when the device is old or is wrongly used. Tests have shown that microwaves emit harmful electromagnetic radiation which could harm embryos and could lead to miscarriage.
