Chewing gum for charging gadgets

Wireless charging technology is not new, but it has not been widely adopted. Designer by the name of Lin Ping hopes that his invention – an electric sticker for charging gadgets, Chewing Gum Battery – waiting to a better future. Packaging such batteries should be sold whole package in street vending machines. Power of one label from the pack enough to charge mp3-player, two label – smartphone or will be able to charge the camera, well, four – small laptop.

The Chewing Gum Battery concept involves paper-based batteries that are kept in a public outdoor dispenser attached to a solar charger. When someone needs a quick boost of battery power, they buy a pack of the fully-charged batteries, peel off the protective backing, and stick the sticky backs of the batteries to the device that needs charging.

Different devices will need different quantities of the little batteries. Each battery transmits its power to the device via RFID, although exactly how this would work is not discussed in the designer’s information. When the batteries are drained, users can recycle them at any Chewing Gum Battery dispenser

and one more the Nokia and WhatsApp got Q&A function check out some of those

Updates from the Q&A, with Nokia’s Broadley and Neeraj Arora, business development, at WhatsApp:

On whose idea the WhatsApp hard key was, Nokia’s or WhatsApp’s… Broadley: “We have an ongoing relationship with WhatsApp that spans a range of Nokia Asha and other Nokia products. We are both really excited about this opportunity.”

On whether the WhatsApp hard key will be exclusive to Nokia devices… Arora & Broadley: “We are very excited to bring a dedicated WhatsApp button to Asha 210 and we will take consumer feedback for future consideration.”

On whether Nokia will bundle WhatsApp’s software with all Asha devices… Broadley: “We already bundle WhatsApp with many Nokia Asha family devices and are working on extending it to as many Nokia phones as possible.”

On what evidence there is consumers want social messaging hard keys on phones, or whether they just want easy access to lots of apps & services… Broadley: “With the Nokia Asha 210 we’ve worked hard to give people the best of both worlds. People have access to a dedicated hardware button, preloaded social networks ready to go right out of the box, and access to the Nokia Store to download and install more.”

On WhatsApp’s support for dual SIM devices… Arora: “The launch of Asha 210 does signify WhatsApp’s availability on Dual SIM devices. We are working on extending it to other Dual SIM devices.”

On the differences between the Asha 210 and Nokia’s earlier Facebook button phone, the Asha 205…  Arora & Broadley: “There is WhatsApp deep linking into social share gallery and there is more to come.”

On the Asha 210′s battery performance… Broadley: “We have a really high quality Nokia 1200 mAh battery in the Nokia Asha 210. The software really helps get great battery life — for example we have something called Nokia Notifications which works in the cloud to check for your social network updates, then pushes them to the phone. This stops the individual apps having to continually check for updates — saving battery.”

On Nokia’s approach to phone design… Broadley: ”Starting with the Nokia 206 announced just before Christmas we’ve been progressively uniting the Nokia portfolio under a single, coherent design language… We have one stunning design approach across the Nokia range.”

On whether Nokia could introduce a Lumia product with a physical Qwerty to differentiate its smartphones from rivals’…  Broadley: “We don’t comment on future plans.”

Solar Powered Stadium by 2015

Solar Powered Stadium by 2015 in France this the good news Lots of Power saving idea, Normally in the Sport game Stadium consuming lots of power now according to the Green Technology  System Union of European Football Association plans to create a  stadium. So day by day all other electronic device combine with solar and algae to produce electronics. Nowadays the world move in to the green tech from that we can control the power wasted. In Germany  they build an Algae power producer this can be Stone Age for the Green Tech. Day by Day it has to improve alot and day by day lost of companies what to move to this tech, Once Huge Companies to these sort of green tech the cost going to come down so after some year easy buy and adopt to this technology. but one thing we are started to produce Algae power system , Meanwhile we should save the Algae in the sea. so we can save nature and produce power also.

stade_2

It’s a good week for renewable energy around the globe, with the world’s first algae-powered building opening in Germany, and the official opening of the largest wind farm in the southern hemisphere. Now, France is getting in on the action, with construction officially beginning on the Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux, by Swiss design firm Herzog & de Meuron.

The project consists of three parts: the stadium bowl, including the sports field and the seating; the concourse; and the aesthetic look of the stadium. Located in the Bordeaux Lac region on the banks of the Garonne in the city’s north, the stadium will be able to hold up to 42,000 spectators.

Herzog & de Meuron — which also designed the “bird’s nest” National Stadium for the Beijing 2008 Olympics — has designed the building to be elegantly light, with a rectangular roof sloping inward, supported by thin white poles.

Meanwhile, the nearby car park will be shaded from the element by a system of solar photovoltaic panels, which are to power the entire stadium. A solar plant on location will convert solar energy to electricity. The overall cost of the stadium is estimated to be around $223 million.

After the opening in 2015, the Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux will host one of the 2016 Union of European Football Associations‘ European Football Championship matches.

First building powered by algae

biq_1

There’s long been speculation and research about algae’s potential as a power source. The fast-growing plants waste three-quarters of the sunlight they absorb, so what if that energy could be captured and converted?

That’s the premise behind BIQ House, designed by architectural firm Splitterwerk. It’s a new algae-powered building that’s opening on April 25 as part of the International Building Exhibition (IBA) in Hamburg, Germany. The building’s east and south facades are covered in a system of louvres. Filled with microalgae, these louvres form 200 square meters of panels to power the building.

The algae-filled louvres(Credit: Splitterwerk)

Each of the 129 approximately 8×2-foot panels form a sort of greenhouse environment for the algae, continuously supplied with liquid nutrients and carbon dioxide via a circuit through the facades. With the addition of sunlight, the algae is expected to proliferate, performing a secondary function of providing shade for the building.

When the algae has grown, it will be harvested and transferred to BIQ’s technical room. There, it will be fermented and converted into the biogas that will power the apartment building, producing up to five times as much biomass per hectare as land plants.

Splitterwerk is hoping the building will be able to run on nothing but renewable energy. As the first of its kind, BIQ House will also be a subject of study into how well algae can realistically serve as a source of energy.

15 Sec Auto play ad on Facebook

Is that any good idea? who know this marketing way gonna boost the Market. 🙂 but we should wait and see how is gonna work because earlier  days we all sticking with old Facebook layout at once they changed then most of them commented that’s not gonna work. but now it developed up to graph search now people talks about the privacy, like that first bad comments and than once people got used that’s the best. But i want say that Facebook’s  15 Video ad good be but after some time we all going to used to that. but my opinion is better Facebook Ad team considering the volume controls and the sound because some sound gonna make user boring. And then how is gonna supports with smartphones if the ads is running with smart phones anyone using the net with out WiFi we looking the ad or now for loading the data going to use with the service provider.  Once Facebook team launched only we can tell how it gonna be. 🙂

According to Ad Age‘s unnamed sources, Facebook is preparing to launch a somewhat invasive ad program this summer through its news feed. Alongside the left and right spaces outside of the news feed, the company is reportedly planning four 15-second autoplay video ads that’ll target women over 30, women under 30, men over 30, and men under 30 (so, uh, expect lots of super general advertisers we’d guess — toilet paper and Coca-Cola, for example). While potentially invasive, the ads are also potentially extremely lucrative; Facebook is apparently seeking near $1 million per day, per advertiser. That’s a cool $4 million (roughly) per day, with the potential risk of pushing away the billions of people enabling such an incredibly high ad rate.

Facebook’s had a strange history with advertising, occasionally amending rulesthat angered the social network’s users (such as targeting marketing based on browsing history). The California-based internet company also outright paused its mobile ad network program last December, citing internal prioritization of other products. As you might’ve guessed, Facebook reps declined to comment on this report, so it’s probably best to reserve your outrage until there’s some solid confirmation.
