"When superstorm Sandy hit the Brooklyn neighbourhood of Red Hook and the power went down, the OTI already had an experimental meshnet in place. The US Federal Emergency Management Agency managed to plug its high-bandwidth satellite uplink into it and instantly provided connectivity to the community and the Red Cross relief organisation."

Originally published on Planetsave. Drones are no longer known as mere weapons of war. At least, that's how Google, Facebook, and other online giants like Amazon appear to be thinking.

Conspiracy Theories  - 
 
YAAY MEE.! -_-

"And sometimes things that seem like conspiracy theories turn out to be true. (Hello, NSA.) As William S. Burroughs once said: “Sometimes paranoia’s just having all the facts.”

But, still.

"Their idea was that a portable, programmable chemistry kit could be used around the world to test water quality, provide affordable medical diagnostic tests, assess soil chemistry for agriculture or serve as a snake bite venom test kit. It could even be used in modern labs to carry out experiments on a very small scale."

With the prize money, Prakash and Korir hope to continue working toward a product that other groups, including researchers and citizen scientists, can then modify and program for a wide range of uses, both educational and scientific.
(Phys.org) —Manu Prakash won a contest to develop the 21st-century chemistry set. His version, based on a toy music box, is small, robust, programmable and costs $5. It can inspire young scientists and also address developing-world problems such as water quality and health.

Brusaw said they aim to launch an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign on Earth Day, April 22 to begin this process.

These glass panels have been tested by civil engineering labs for traction, durability and strength, and the data indicates they’re suitable as a safe walking or driving surface, Scott Brusaw said.
“All of the results were outstanding,” he added in an email. “That was a huge hurdle for us on this round of funding from the Federal Highway Administration.”

As for Solar Roadways, the next step is to start running their new parking lot through the wringer. The prototype is fully equipped with the solar cells, heat element LEDs and super-strong glass panels. Eventually, it will be time to ramp up production by hiring a team to streamline production and move into manufacturing.

Solar Roadways at last !

After so many years of waiting, here comes their first solar parking lot ! Congrats +Scott Brusaw and Julie Brusaw !
Hope this is only the very beginning of a giant and brilliant idea.

"While it's too early to predict what applications these materials are ideally suited for, other materials in this class of polar metals are superconducting —they are able to conduct electricity with zero resistance— so they could find use in a variety of advanced electronic and thermal devices."
