The foundation addresses the world's Grand Challenges by creating and managing large-scale, high-profile, incentivized prize competitions that stimulate investment in research and development worth far more than the prize itself. It motivates and inspires brilliant innovators from all disciplines to leverage their intellectual and financial capital.According to Dr. Doug Engelbart, the most surprising – yet delightful – change which will ensue is an intelligence amplification process he refers to as ‘bootstrapping.’ Engelbart describes this process as follows: An investment that boosts A Capability provides a one-shot boost.

This increased collaboration and rich exchange would culminate in what Dr. Engelbart calls the collective IQ, the corporate knowledge product of groups of individuals working on shared issues, problems, and concerns. These groups of individuals would be considered improvement communities, and their efforts could be enhanced through networking with other like-minded or similarly situated communities in what Dr. Engelbart calls Networked Improvement Communities ( NICs). The archiving of the knowledge products of these organizations would be Dynamic Knowledge Repositories (DKRs). These dynamic repositories would be ever-evolving, interactive electronic environments designed to allow for the co-evolution of human capabilities and tools. The result of this co-evolution would be a continuous cycle of improvement, culminating in a better understanding of improvement, and resulting in the improvement of the improvement process itself.

YOU-GEN.com JouleBox™ video on how it works (11:50 min.) 

Five Proven Technologies have been combined to generate electricity:

1.Solar Panels and DC Generators to constantly charge the batteries.

2.Lithium Ion Battery Brick with patented Serial and Parallel wiring to Charge and Discharge. By not using the 15,000 charge/discharge life cycles, the batteries will last 20 years plus.

3.Vortex Reduction Chamber (VRC). High Pressure Manufactured Wind is sent through a VRC to increase Force with reduced energy to turn the Power Turbine. The Power Turbine turns an AC Generator.

4.High Efficiency Speed Control DC Motors and DC Blower Motors and controllers for greater durability and reliability. We use electronic controllers to maximize efficiency. Our motors use less than 1/3rd the energy of conventional motors. (Recycle back EMF.)

5. Power Q – controls the power quality output to sync with the grid and maintain proper harmonics. Clean sine waves, stable Hz and harmonics, no power surges.

Our financial partners are prepared to invest and build Micro Grid Distributed Generation Power Facilities Next to the sub-stations:

* Where the energy is needed!
* Clusters of 60 kW units –from 3 MW to 50 MW plants or more
* Makes the Grid Safer and more Secure
* Scalable in size: Dependable “Firm Power”
* We will lease/buy “Right-of-Way” land under transmission lines next to the sub-station where power is needed.

Built-in obsolescence is so passé. Tesla is working to develop a new motor that could help people keep their luxury electric cars even longer, without expensive mechanic bills. CEO Elon Musk announced in the most recent investor update that Tesla engineers are working on a new version of its electric drive unit that could have a lifespan of one million miles.

Aug. 18, 2014 - Self-Teaching AI Can Respond to Any Request - Viv Labs is working on AI technology that makes Apple's Siri look like child's play. http://tinyurl.com/oxycky7

[ ...] "Many other Siri-like technologies do exist, such as Google Now. However, like Siri, they are all limited by responding only to requests they have been programmed to. Viv generates its own code as it goes, without the help of programers. This means it can respond to complicated requests by generating a program that links together third-party information sources. And it does so in less than a second.

Viv has very few limitations, including needing a training period (which sometimes only requires a few minutes). This is used to learn specific jargon, but as Viv grows, it will becoming more knowledgable and gain a better understanding of certain topics. The founders created Viv on three principles -- Viv will be taught by the world, Viv will know more than what it is taught, and Viv will learn something new every day. And, as more people use it, the smarter it gets.

Viv is still in the development stages, but the technology could potentially be linked to just about everything, including your TV, smartphone and even your car.

 Patriots Jet Team Foundation www.PJTF.org - a new, all-volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring the youth of America with a love of aviation and aerospace. We believe students today need and deserve every encouragement to learn and apply STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) along their educational paths. Our Foundation is developing innovative educational programs that combine the high energy of our Patriots Jet Team partners with exciting, hands-on STEM-based curricula that will provide students with learning skills and experiences of a lifetime.

"At 20% efficiency a 35 story office building with all semi-transparent Perovskite solar cells would get 60% of its power from the windows."

This breakthrough news reminds me of discovery of the Honda-Fujishima effect - a novel TiO2 nanotechnology when irradiated with visible or UV light has been developed for self-cleaning glass and anti-fogging coatings on mirrors. http://www.u-tokyo.ac.jp/en/utokyo-research/feature-stories/the-world-of-titanium-dioxide/

June 10, 2014 - TiO2 Research progress while aiming for the market http://www.u-tokyo.ac.jp/.../the-world-of-titanium-dioxide/ 

Japan discovered a new iron- or copper-ion co-catalyst (photocatalyst) to the surface of the TiO2 largely inactivates pathogenic viruses even when irradiated with fluorescent bulbs emitting no ultraviolet light. Trials are already being conducted at airports and hospitals, and its superior anti-bacterial and deodorant properties have been confirmed.

These new photocatalysts are expected to find indoor uses on wallpapers and floorings, air purifiers and other appliances that can remove volatile organic compounds and allergens in the future. During 2014 film, paint, glass, and other products using this new photocatalyst are scheduled for market debut.
