Anything you might find in a landfill that can be removed and reused is a source for urban miners. Around the world, a nascent industry has taken the world by storm. By reclaiming compounds and elements from products, buildings, and waste, we can preserve resources and limit our carbon footprint.
Deep learning technology has many applications and has already revolutionized the way we do many things. This article explores four areas where deep learning has made significant advancements: image classification, data processing, deepfake technology, and video games.
Is generating electricity from 100% renewable energy sources impractical and unattainable? The answer is clearly no since there are already several countries that generate 100% of the electricity they use from renewable sources of energy. Many others are approaching the 100% renewable threshold.
With the highest melting point of any metal, tungsten is strong at high temps. Its primary use is in the manufacture of alloys. Alloys made by melting and mixing two or more metals, and tungsten alloys are used in electrical devices and cutting tools when strength and heat resistance are imperative.
Multibeam antennas and multiband antennas are different types of RF hardware, though there is significant confusion on the matter. We'll explain the differences in the types of antennas and where they may overlap.
Learn about the influence of wind power on the stability of the power grid in this article.
We've all heard the popular belief that buying is usually better than renting, whether it be a home, a car, or otherwise. Could this apply to electricity as well? If so, how does a person "buy" electricity, and is it more cost-effective than "renting" it from power companies? Find out here.
Evaluating the impact of recycling metals can be little tricky. Keeping metal out of landfills cuts down on the speed with which we fill them up. It also prevents oxide seepage. Steel recycling saves on the amount of wood we use. It contributes to taxes, wages, and recycles evermore.
Drones have a wide number of uses, especially in the agriculture industry where they have some surprising benefits. These useful little machines can help farmers improve their yields, evaluate their crops and save time, among other advantages.
Drones are incredibly useful for to photographers, experienced or new, but the vast range of drones available can be bewildering to those who don't know what they are looking for. Here is a short list of the best drones for capturing amazing pictures.
Proposed in 2010, Matthias Loster proposed a simple idea: What if we were able to power the entire world with solar energy? What is the most optimal way we could accomplish this? How easy would it be? This article will cover his answer, as well as explore a bit into its integrity several years later
How many power grids does the United States have? One? 10? 50? What even is a power grid? What does it do, and how does it becoming damaged affect me? If you've got no idea, it may be time to become informed and see what steps you can take to be prepared for the worst-case scenario.
What type of antenna should you use for a drone controller? What are the best drone antennas for use inside the drone?
In the world of solar inverters, it's generally considered that you have three different options. Without knowing what they do, it can be tough to make a decision on which choice you'd like to go for. Is there a best option? What reason might you have to pick one over the other?
Weather and emergency radios are an essential part of a household, car, or office emergency kit or go-bag. These radios can keep you and your family informed during a potentially dangerous situation.
Many people believe that solar energy is simply too expensive for them, or not a cost-efficient option. In truth, that couldn't be farther from reality.
