DryMate – Tumble Dryer with New Energy-Efficient Vacuum Technology

DryMate

DryMate is a clothes dryer that uses a new vacuum technology to dry clothes at lower temperature. As a result lesser energy is consumed, and heat-related damage to the clothes is avoided. The dryer scores another brownie point for being easily accessible from a standing position. To aid its stand further, a 9 degree tilt and a wide-mouth drum has been incorporated to the design. The rounded exterior gives a refreshing new form to the redundant cuboids that we see at homes. (Pics)

Vacuum Cleaner Museum Opens

What a sucker selection!

Some people collect stamps, but James Brown of Nottingham collects vacuum cleaners. In fact, “Mr. Vacuum Cleaner” has so many of them that he opened a museum:

He was eight, and desperate for a cleaner of his own, when he spotted a red Goblin 800 lying on a rubbish dump. “I took it home, wiped all the muck off it, plugged it in, and it worked,” he sighs.

“That was one of the most fantastic moments of my life…”

Lunar Bricks Could Be Used To Build Bases On The Moon

Lunar Bricks Could Be Used To Build Bases On The Moon 

Most of the concepts for lunar bases we tend to see are dome-shaped, built locally here on Earth and then transported. The “Masons of Regolith,” a team of seven Virginia Tech students named for the rock that is present on the Earth, the Moon and asteroids, think that those domes could be built on the lunar surface instead, made from rock gathered on site.

Portable, Noninvasive Trauma Monitors

Portable, Noninvasive Trauma Monitors 

A portable, noninvasive monitor developed by researchers at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. 

Patients with severe injuries or serious infections run the risk of circulatory shock–a life-threatening condition in which the blood can’t supply tissues with enough oxygen and nutrients. If shock is recognized in time, the patient can be resuscitated with oxygen, intravenous fluids, and medications. But catching shock early is no simple matter. A small infrared sensor currently under development at the University of Massachusetts Medical School promises to detect impending shock earlier than any other noninvasive test.
