Energy efficient technologies are the trend these days. Being eco-friendly is the primary focus of all the new innovations being released in the market, and sometimes the cost of the product is compromised because of this.

Luckily, for those who plan to build their dream houses or those who just are opting to renovate homes, there’s a new product that may pique your interest.

The product is a roof and attic insulation system. It’s packed to promote the reduction of electric consumption in a household by a significant amount. Not only is it able to reduce electric bills, it is also a very high-tech system which can regulate the temperature of the household.

Here’s the link!

    Here’s another fascinating read about new innovations in technology: http://www.ivanhoe.com/science/story/2010/08/747a.html

    Dubbed the Green Wheel, I was surprised to read about this new and unique way of transportation– being able to bike to work and not break a sweat! It should be much less costly than driving a car or even commuting to work. Since the amount of money the consumer needs to shell out for is almost exclusively for purchasing the motor’s battery, it should be worth it to purchase this specialized bicycle. Saving cash, exercise, and helping Mother Nature are just some of the really important benefits of the product.

    An engineer’s task is to find practical solutions to problems. Luckily for most of the time, he prevails.

    Take this article I read as an example: http://www.ivanhoe.com/science/story/2010/04/697a.html

    The technological marvel is called the Thermal Leak Detector. It spots different areas in the house where energy is lost or wasted, so that homeowners can fix or renovate that specific area to better preserve energy. It’s a very important product because of its capability to save money, most especially because of the current poor economic situations around the world.

    It’s common knowledge that there is no part of a coconut palm tree which is thrown or wasted. We can make a wide range of items from it; from juices and oils to candies and mats and ornaments, the ways in which we utilize the coconut is unbelievable.

    But, did it even occur to you to consider it possible for coconuts to be used in the production of automobile parts?

    Yes, car parts can be made out of coconuts!

    Apparently, engineers figured out that the fibers inside coconut husks can be used for the manufacture of trunk liners, car ceilings, dashboards, door panels, and floorboards. The process helps save precious metal resources and equates to additional income for farmers as well.

    Fossil fuels will eventually be exhausted; this is inevitable. When this happens, how can oil-dependent sectors of society be able to cope? More importantly, how would we humans be moving about without gasoline-powered cars?

    A possible scenario would be to build cars which depend on another source of energy. For example, take this very technical article about the possibility of hydrogen-powered cars in the near future: http://www.nanowerk.com/news/newsid=1567.php

    Here’s a really thrilling story: http://www.prunderground.com/nanotechnology-and-engineering-breakthroughs-revolutionize-metal-cladding-market/002991/

    The article I posted tells about an innovation in the metal cladding market, and how this new product will affect the stocks of the company behind it. I just thought that the article relates to what we are focusing in on CE 22, and so I’d like to share it.

    I checked about the proclamations of the stock analyst in the said article, and his prediction about the stock prices of Abakan Corporation was incorrect. As of January 21, it was trading at $1.195. (Source: http://quotes.nasdaq.com/asp/SummaryQuote.asp?symbol=ABKI&selected=ABKI)

    I guess this is what they say regarding the volatility of the stock market, and how sometimes your best predictions just do not come true.

    Driving accidents occur everyday and most of the time, the accident is caused by the driver’s recklessness and irresponsibility in driving. Luckily, there’s a technology being developed that can avoid and minimize these kinds of mishaps.

    The technology is called skin stretch feedback; it works with GPS so that when the device is directing the driver to turn left but is distracted, the driver will feel a nudge on his/her left hand reminding to turn the car left at that moment.

    To read more about this technology, here’s the link: http://www.ivanhoe.com/science/story/2010/12/800a.html

    Here’s an interesting read: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/01/110105121131.htm

    The article, which promptly reminds us of the significance of environmental engineering, shows a new discovery regarding the possible conversion of sewage water into useful potential energy.

    If the said process is properly studied and utilized, it will most likely create an impact on the availability of energy all over the world.

    Tired of light bulbs that just do not last long?

    Luckily, there is a new product being developed. It’s called the Electron Stimulated Luminescence bulb, or ESL for short.

    Made of inexpensive, easy-to-find, and recyclable materials, its price should undoubtedly be cheaper than the current light bulbs. On top of that, the ESL bulb is a more energy-efficient alternative to the traditional bulbs being used nowadays.
