ELECTRONICS: The P100 gauge and Hand Held Pumps from E-Instruments is an instrument that offers pressure calibration in an easy to use design with ranges up to 1000 bar. The P100 gauge and Hand Held Pumps combine pressure generation into one unit that is able to display engineering units in bar, Mpa, Kpa, Psi, and mbar. It is idea for pneumatic vacuum and hydraulic pressure generation.
Accuracy: ±0.20 percent of Full Scale or: ±0.05 percent of Full Scale
The 2014 Ig Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Dr. Kiyoshi Mabuchi and his team members for their work measuring the slipperiness of banana peels. Turns out they're slipperier with the yellow side up.
Many scientists have been working battery-free ways to power wearable electronics that can replace bulky battery packs, particularly through the use of energy-harvesting materials. Now a team of researchers in China have upped the game by developing a lightweight and flexible solar cell that can be woven into two-way energy-harvesting fabric.
