NASA InSight Mars Lander Safely Touches Down

NASA has been busy at work engineering a robot assigned with the task of journeying to the Red Planet. It is different from the Mars rovers, such as Spirit and Opportunity, as it has a totally different task at hand. This NASA robot named InSight is a lander, with a specific duty to explore what lies below the planet’s surface. It has been busy at work since it touched down in late 2018.

How Thermoelectric Technology is Used in World’s First Air Conditioned Helmet

The term, “safety first” has always been a golden rule that we remind ourselves and teach our children, but what about “comfort second”? Feher Helmets has taken that idea to the next level by turning a typical motorcycle helmet into one equipped with a self-contained air conditioning system for a more comfortable ride.

Thermoelectric Nanogenerator Could Allow For Infrared Light Energy Harvesting

Energy harvesting has been a hot topic lately and has attracted interest for developing clean and sustainable energy technologies. While there are many different aspects of thermoelectrics that are being researched and engineered for improvements, one is significant thermal difference (ΔT). In a past blog, we talked about a newly developed TEG that can operate with a 5 degree C thermal difference, but today we will talk about a flexible photo-thermoelectric nanogenerator.

Japanese Researchers Created a Flexible Thermoelectric Generator

Over time, scientists and engineers have found ways to integrate new technologies into our everyday lives. We have fitness watches, smartphones, sleep trackers, and more, but these devices aren’t attached to us at all times. People get sick of fitness watches, forget to track each night of sleep, and although we typically keep our smartphone within arm’s length, they are not as essential to us as the clothes we wear. Think about it, your clothes are the one thing you could never function in society without.

Scientists Successfully Developed a Thermoelectric Generator with 5° C Thermal Difference

The world as we know it is getting closer and closer to becoming a completely IoT-based society. For those unfamiliar with the Internet of Things, we wrote all about it in our last blog post! It is essentially a system of integrated computing devices or sensors that transmit data over a network. Think about all the devices in your home that have WiFi capabilities. Your phone, smartwatch, television, heating and air conditioning, and the list goes on.
