INVENTION FOR SALE

Gas Actuated Thermometer

It is a medical thermometer that uses gas instead of liquid to measure the temperature. Because of its high heat sensitivity, gas is a faster and better medium to measure the temperature with. The gas-actuated thermometer includes a bulb or reservoir at one end and an indicator tube hermetically sealed thereto and extending therefrom. The bulb and indicator portions are preferably formed as a single, unitary structure of monolithic construction, using a strong, break-resistant glass.

Hyperloop Competition Winner Breaks Speed Record
SpaceX, USA
One way the development of Hyperloop transport is being supported is through Space X's Hyperloop Pod Challenge. Participants are challenged to design and build the best high-speed pod they can. They are judged according to one criterion which is pods reaching maximum speeds under their own propulsion with successful deceleration, i.e., no crashing. Three teams made it to the final of the 2018 installment, but WARR Hyperloop was the ultimate winner.

Why Data is the Future of Self-Driving Cars

By Steve Jones

Big data will help ensure the future of self-driving cars, while the continued development of the IoT will form a necessary part of creating a world fit for autonomous transportation. Do not believe what you hear about AI or the importance of "smart cars" – the real future of self-driving cars is big data, which stands to totally upend our modern understandings of transportation.
