Hybrid Solar and Wind Energy Harvesting
This is an old project I had started about a year ago that has since been discontinued. However I am more than happy to share information to the public. The circuit schematics are all available for download from the OSHPark site https://oshpark.com/profiles...

A basic video showing the concept of using a clear perspex pipe as a "light-pipe" to create decorative lighting. In this case showcasing a mini Vertical Axis Wind Turbine project I was working on, one with a solar panel included and the other with IR remote-controlled LEDS.

This is part of a few ongoing tests I had to test energy harvesting circuitry I had designed and developed.

Who Truly Benefits from Science?
Science is often portrayed in media as a self-evidently benevolent enterprise. Moreover, it is constantly portrayed in mainstream media, both in news and popular documentaries, as a continuously and eternally progressing enterprise where each new developmen...

A demonstration video showcasing how a small energy harvester circuit (using an LTC3108) can be used to harvest low levels of heat energy from a thermoelectric generator (TEG).

The TEG can be heated on one side with a low to medium heat source (i.e from body heat or waste heat from an appliance) and cooled on the other side using an aluminium heat sink.

Using magnets on the side of the heat sink we can hold the TEG module and circuit onto a metal appliance for energy harvesting, such as a steel central heating boiler, radiator or piping.

In this demonstration, the energy harvester circuit is used to power a colour cycling RGB LED.

It is hoped that small energy harvesters will soon be universally incorporated within microelectronics such as IOT devices, sensor stations, WiFi routers, drones and wearable electronics.

Incorporating energy harvesting helps devices become more autonomous as by including the ability to charge and power themselves using the environment and waste energy sources such as waste heat produced by machines.

A demonstration video showcasing how a small energy harvester circuit (using an LTC3105) can be used to harvest light energy indoors from a small flexible thin film silicon solar panel enclosed in a picture frame. The circuit is used to power a blue CREE LED.

It is hoped that small energy harvesters will soon be universally incorporated within microelectronics such as IOT devices, sensor stations, WiFi routers, drones and wearable electronics. Incorporating energy harvesting helps devices become more autonomous as by including the ability to charge and power themselves using the environment.

The Possibility of "Warp Drive" in the Context of General Relativity
After 36 years of travel, the Voyager 1 spacecraft had officially been announced by NASA to have entered interstellar space, the vast void of the galaxy that separates the stars. Pioneer 10, travelling in the opposite direction to Voyager 1, is the second m...

Viewing Meta-Heuristic Synchronization using the Path Integral Interpretation
We can investigate and compare the probabilistic representation
of the path integral theory with the description of a metaheuristic signalling
algorithm as a system of discontinuous pas-coupling. Discontinuous pas coupling can occur in a variety of
system. ...
