Upena Wave Farm

ModuleIcon

The Upena Wave-Farm was intended to provide a modular, extensible zero emission design to facilitate the production of electrical power and Hydrogen fuel using a hybrid mix of wind, solar, thermal and wave power generation. Continue reading

Self-Powered Structures

Zero-point energy studies suggest Particle/Antiparticle rotation

vacuum_fluctuation_equation

Recent papers reminded me of my earlier studies on temporal propagation, allowing an alternative to Matter/Antimatter without requiring exotic particle opposites for each. Continue reading

Wing-In-Ground Effect (WIG) “Flying Sub”

WIGSubIcon

My students asked about the prop-less submarine propulsion system, so I explained the origin of its design as a flying submersible for maintenance of the floating power grid. Continue reading

Fixed propagation of Light through a Vacuum

Polarization

The 2-D representation of a photon’s existence carries its third dimension within its path orientation (accessible as polarization), while the fixed rate of C may be an artifact of the universe’s passage along the photon’s existence. Continue reading

Evolving Gas at Depth

ElectrolysisIcon

Under test, decomposition of water into oxyhydrogen gas (or HHO gas) yielded a slightly higher efficiency at greater pressure than in open atmospheric pressures. More testing is needed to identify the exact cause of this variation. Continue reading

Apparent wave/particle duality of photons.

time_dilationIcon

Energy propagates at a fixed velocity through a vacuum, designated as C. Experiments with light indicate the apparent duality of a photon’s state – light will act in a wave-like or a particle-like manner depending upon the conditions of the … Continue reading

Using BitCoin Mining to Teach Economics, Mathematics and More

BitCoin Icon

BitCoin mining chips are falling in price now they utility is reduced, but together with inexpensive Raspberry Pi computers, they provide excellent resources for classroom models and lessons in mathematics, economics, production, project management and entrepreneurial requirements for business.

Taking Part in Round 3 of the #SciFund Challenge

SciFund3Icon

STEMulate Learning is taking part in Round 3 of the #SciFund Challenge, trying to crowd-fund equipment for our research into K-12 STEM education. We are attempting to obtain support for a basic 3D scanner and a EEG neurocomputing headset to improve our student’s ability to control their robots by thought alone. If we exceed the initial funding goals, we will obtain a high-resolution 3D scanner suitable to museum artifact curation. All of our work will be shared openly through file sharing sites like Thing-i-Verse so that students and teachers around the world can take advantage of our results. Continue reading
