Did you know that your biggest daily exposure to air pollutants comes while driving your car

Did you know that your biggest daily exposure to air pollutants comes while driving your car to work?  Until manufacturers start making intelligent vehicles that automatically keep the car cabin’s air clean, the ventilation settings on your car’s dashboard are the best way to protect your health. Fan speed, ventilation mode, and cabin air recirculation options can help protect your respiratory health, but how do you know what the best combinations are?  Cabin air filters were originally designed to remove relatively large particles like pollen and dust and are not very good at filtering out the much smaller, submicrometer particles from vehicle emissions. Gases like carbon dioxide, which is exhaled by passengers; and nitrogen oxide, which infiltrates the cabin from vehicle emissions, aren’t usually filtered and can impair decision making, make people sleepy, or exert adverse health effects. Cabin air quality can be affected by heavy or stop-and-go traffic, ventilation fan speed, vehicle speed, pollutants in outside air, and the number of passengers in the car.  Over the course of a long drive, your car’s cabin can accumulate levels of particulate matter and gases that are very u...

RC servos are a common component in many robotics projects, but [Giovanni Leal] needed linear motion

RC servos are a common component in many robotics projects, but [Giovanni Leal] needed linear motion instead of the rotary actuation that servos normally offer. The 3D Printed Mini Linear Actuator was developed as a way to turn a mini servo into a linear actuator, giving it more power in the process. A servo uses a potentiometer attached to the output shaft in order to sense position, and the internal electronics take care of driving the motor to move the shaft to the desired angle. [Giovanni] took apart an economical mini servo and after replacing the motor with a 100:1 gear motor and using it to power a compact 3D printed linear actuator, he used the servo’s potentiometer to read the linear actuator’s position. As a result, the linear actuator can exert considerably more force than the original servo while retaining exactly the same servo interface. You can see one being assembled and tested in the video embedded below, which is part of [Giovanni]’s entry for The 2018 Hackaday Prize. We’ve seen servos turned into linear actuators in the past but [Giovanni]’s method yields a power boost thanks to the new motor, and manages to have an outward resemblance similar to most other li...

The ultimate MacBook USB-C accessory just got better

I’m a huge fan of the 20-pin USB-C magnetic adapter that allows me to charge my MacBook Pro without the risk of damaging the port. Now these adapters have just got better. By Adrian Kingsley-Hughes for Hardware 2.0 | January 11, 2020 — 12:53 GMT (20:53 GMT+08:00) | Topic: Hardware If you own a USB-C MacBook, or for that matter any USB-C enabled laptop or tablet, then you really need to take a look at the 20-pin USB-C magnetic L-shaped breakaway connectors that are available. They replicate the old MagSafe connector, protecting the precious — and expensive to repair — USB-C port by, well, breaking away if too much stress is placed on the port. But some of you were wondering if there was a straight connector available instead of the L-shaped one. Here is it — a 20-pin USB-C magnetic adapter that comes in both the L-shaped design and a square straight version. The L-shaped version comes in silver and space grey, while the straight version currently only seems to be available in space grey. Being 20-pin, it means that this connector not only carried up to 100W of power, but can also carry 4K video and 10Gbps of data. Both styles of connector feature a ...

A few snow showers scattered about the area this morning, otherwise a good deal of clouds. High 17F. Winds light and variable. Chance of snow 30%.. Light snow this evening will transition to snow showers late. Low 14F. Winds light and variable. Chance of snow 70%. About one inch of snow expected. Christmas at home with my niece and nephew was wonderful as always, but now that the twins are 10, it’s not quite like it used to be. Sure, we spent a few hours leaning big sticks up against in a tree in a sort of teepee fort, and Kylee is still small enough for piggy back rides, but I miss the old days. I thought you all might like to reminisce with me. So here’s an account of Christmas break in 2016 when they were enthusiastic six-year-olds! “When can we go on a hike with you, Auntie Em?” asked a six-year-old in a shark costume after all the Christmas presents were opened. Those may be the sweetest words I’ve e...

Gas cooktops have several benefits, being able to deliver heat near-instantly, while also being highly responsive

Gas cooktops have several benefits, being able to deliver heat near-instantly, while also being highly responsive when changing temperature. However, there are risks involved with both open flames and the potential of leaving the gas on with the burner unlit. After a couple of close calls, [Bob] developed a simple solution to this safety issue. Most commercial products in this space work by detecting the heat from the cooktop, however this does not help in the case of an unlit burner being left on. [Bob]’s solution was to develop a small round PCB that sits behind the oven knobs. Magnets are placed on the knobs, which hold a reed switch open when the knob is in the off position. When the knob is turned on, the reed switch closes, powering a small microcontroller which beeps at regular intervals to indicate the burner is on. It’s a tidy solution to a common problem, which could help many people – especially the elderly or the forgetful. It integrates neatly into existing cooktops without requiring major modification, and [Bob] has made the plans available if you wish to roll your own. I love this! I have an electric stovetop, and I’m incredibly forgetful. I’ve ruined numerous pan...

In a PC, fittings are what hold all your tubes together and connect water blocks to

In a PC, fittings are what hold all your tubes together and connect water blocks to pumps and radiators. It’s not enough to simply attach a soft or hard tube to a block and call it a day. You need to add a fitting to create a water-tight seal. When working with electronics and liquids, you need to be double (and triple) certain no leaks will occur. There are a number of fitting types available, as well as sizing and materials. Much like other parts of a water-cooling loop inside a PC, choosing fittings for your system is a simple process. But you need to bear in mind the materials used to make said fittings. It’s not recommended to mix material types. If you have a copper radiator and water block but nickel fittings, you’ll be fine. Copper and nickel are usually OK to use together, but when you throw aluminum or silver into the mix, things can get messy with galvanic corrosion. The second consideration is size, which needs to match your tubing. Both tubing and fittings can be purchased at the following sizes. ID and OD stand for inner diameter and outer diameter, respectively. For soft tubing, you have two choices. The first is the barb, which simply allows the...

Innovations in Construction: Researchers 3D Print Foamed Concrete Panels

Bound Metal Additive Manufacturing Market Outlook – Metal Binder Jetting and Bound Metal Deposition In the recently published ‘Fiber-reinforced lightweight foamed concrete panels suitable for 3D printing applications,’ the authors present us with experimental results regarding a set of fiber-reinforced innovative lightweight panels (FRIL-panels) with a thickness of 12mm, created with a ‘peculiar’ foamed concrete featuring both high viscosity and cohesion. While environmentally friendly solutions are sought after in many industries today, that is especially so within the 3D printing realm; however, it is difficult to have it all, and often it is hard to bring together both suitable mechanical properties and performance. Foamed concrete may be one of the answers as air bubbles act as a replacement for conventional cement, producing a more lightweight material—and reducing waste, ultimately. Microstructural air-voids are also extremely beneficial in comparison to concrete. The ‘cementitious matrix’ also includes good thermal insulation, acoustic absorption, and fire resistance. Lightweight foamed concrete (LWFC) can be used to create foundation slabs, act as filler, and can also bo...
