Welcome to the water-fueled salad-spinner cake box. Here's a muscle-free salad spinner that works from the power of a sink faucet and rotates your salad greens faster than the manual version no matter how much muscle you put into it. Rick Crammond based his spinner on a design invented by Nikola Tesla using his CD Turbine. The turbine combines CDs or DVDs, their spindle case (or cake box as it's sometimes called) and a bunch of magnets. Using your faucet or garden hose, you can spin your greens at 1,000 rpm, giving you superbly dry greens in seconds.
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
