A few weeks ago, during another unseasonably warm fall day, my husband, in a pensive tone,

A few weeks ago, during another unseasonably warm fall day, my husband, in a pensive tone, posed a question: “Will it be embarrassing for you, to put your coat on again this year?” This seemed like an odd query, but I understood immediately what he was saying because my winter coat has a capital “c” — it’s the Amazon Coat. Along with thousands of New Yorkers (or at least what feels like thousands), I bought a $100-ish puffy coat from Amazon last winter. Boxy, wide, with an unholy assemblage of zippers and giant pockets, the coat was not particularly stylish, but it was not not stylish. It kind of confused my eyes to look at it. Yet in a world where the other so-called viral winter parka sported a goose label and can cost more than $1,000, the Amazon Coat was, well, cheap. Remarkably cheap. One click away. By the time it arrived in my Twitter feed around early 2018, it was a quick jump to arriving in my apartment. In 2019, though, the coat seemed smaller, sadder and definitely dirtier, slumped in the corner of my closet. What happens when the moment for such a specific product passes? Who will be wearing the coat for another year, and who will be sending it to the great clothing ...

NFC Makes Smartphones the Key to Hyundai’s New Cars – 2019-03-06 – Page 1

This year, new Hyundai vehicle owners will be able to use Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) functionality in their smartphones to access and start their cars. The new digital car key solution, being rolled out first in the 2020 Hyundai Sonata, will consist of 13.56 MHz NFC RFID readers and antennas compliant with the ISO 14443 standard, as well as BLE beacons in the car and an app to operate the system. Hyundai Motor Co.’s automotive group in South Korea has released what it calls Digital Key technology, which is intended to eliminate the need for key fobs or remotes. Instead, the vehicles will enable drivers to use their phone to open the car doors, launch the ignition and personalize settings inside the vehicle, according to a driver’s personal preferences. To accomplish this goal, users of the Hyundai app can set up what is known as a Cloud Profile, which links a user’s phone to a vehicle, while also enabling him or her to customize preferences, such as how the driver’s seat is positioned. First, a car owner downloads the Digital Key app on his or her iOS- or Android-based device. The system can provide access to a total of ...

8 Cities That Show You What the Future Will Look Like

Cities used to grow by accident. Sure, the location usually made sense—someplace defensible, on a hill or an island, or somewhere near an extractable resource or the confluence of two transport routes. But what happened next was ad hoc. The people who worked in the fort or the mines or the port or the warehouses needed places to eat, to sleep, to worship. Infrastructure threaded through the hustle and bustle—water, sewage, roads, trolleys, gas, electricity—in vast networks of improvisation. You can find planned exceptions: Alexandria, Roman colonial towns, certain districts in major Chinese cities, Haussmann’s Paris. But for the most part it was happenstance, luck, and layering the new on top of the old. At least, that’s the way things worked for most of human history. But around the second decade of the 20th century, things changed. Cities started to happen on purpose. Beginning with New York City’s zoning laws in 1916, development began to occur by commission, not omission. Laws and regulations dictated the shape of the envelope. Functional decisions determined aesthetic outcomes—not always for the best. So let’s jump to now: A century, plus or minus, after human beings starte...

The BMW Active Hybrid 3 shouldnt be confused with hybrids such as the Honda Insight and

The BMW Active Hybrid 3 shouldnt be confused with hybrids such as the Honda Insight and Toyota Prius. Those cars are about being seen to be green as well as actually being green, whereas the Active Hybrid 3 looks like any other BMW 3 Series. Combining a 54bhp electric motor mounted in the eight-speed automatic gearbox with a turbocharged 3.0-litre petrol engine, the Hybrid 3 produces a total of 335bhp and 332lb ft of torque. Its one hybrid thats not short of performance. Whats the 2012 BMW Active Hybrid 3 like to drive?At speeds of up to 37mph, the Active Hybrid 3 can run for almost 2.4 miles on electric power alone. Of course, thats only as long as you dont encounter any steep inclines and if you’re gentle with the accelerator pedal. Put down your foot hard, and the electric motor assists the petrol engine, giving the car rapid acceleration the 0-62mph dash is dismissed in just 5.3 seconds and plenty of mid-range overtaking punch. The transition between pure electric power and petrol engine-assisted propulsion is especially smooth, partially thanks to the silky eight-speed automatic gearbox. Theres just the slightest increase in mechanical noise as the petrol engine crank...

Silicon lithium-ion could bring 10 times the battery capacity at lower cost

Researchers at the University of Alberta have published their findings on how to incorporate silicon into current lithium-ion technology to make batteries with ten times the charge capacity. Existing lithium batteries use high-purity percent-pure graphite — a form of carbon used as the lead in most pencils — as the electrode where lithium ions are stored in the battery’s charged state. However, graphite prices have been soaring as demand for batteries has surged — the general cost for 95 percent-pure graphite is around $10,000 per metric ton. So, why not use silicon instead? At about a third of the price, it’s abundant. Well, unlike graphite, it’s a poor conductor and lacks durability to take multiple charges in its natural state. But Alberta’s chemists decided to look into how to make silicon into a better fit for batteries. “We wanted to test how different sizes of silicon nanoparticles could affect fracturing inside these batteries,” said Jillian Buriak, study co-author and Canada Research Chair in Nanomaterials for Energy. “As the particles get smaller, we found they are better able to manage the strain that occurs as the silicon ‘breathes’ upon alloying and dealloying with ...

K 2019 Preview: Injection Molding Goes for the ‘Green’ : Plastics Technology

‘Circular Economy’ joins Industry 4.0 as common themes of injection molding exhibits in Düsseldorf. If you attended a major international plastics trade show in recent years, you were likely bombarded with messages that the future of plastics processing is “digitalization,” also known as Industry 4.0. That theme will continue in force at October’s K 2019 show, where numerous exhibitors will present their latest features and products for “smart machines, smart processes and smart service.”  But another overarching theme will claim pride of place at this year’s event—“Circular Economy,” which refers to the whole range of strategies for recycling and reuse of plastics waste, as well as design for recyclability. While this will be one of the dominant notes sounded at the show, other elements of sustainability, such as energy savings and lightweighting of plastics parts, will be heard frequently as well. How does injection molding relate to the idea of the Circular Economy? A number of exhibitors will endeavor to answer that question: •  Because variation in melt viscosity is one of the major challenges to molders of recycled plastics, Engel will show how its iQ weight control softwa...

Silicon as a semiconductor: Silicon carbide would be much more efficient

In power electronics, semiconductors are based on the element silicon—but the energy efficiency of silicon carbide would be much higher. Physicists of the University of Basel, the Paul Scherrer Institute and ABB explain what prevents the use of this combination of silicon and carbon in the scientific journal Applied Physics Letters. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1449240174198-2′); }); Energy consumption is growing across the globe, and sustainable energy supplies such as wind and solar power are becoming increasingly important. Electric power, however, is often generated a long distance away from the consumer. Efficient distribution and transport systems are thus just as crucial as transformer stations and power converters that turn the generated direct current into alternating current. Modern power electronics must be able to handle large currents and high voltages. Current transistors made of semiconductor materials for field-effect transistors are now mainly based on silicon technology. Significant physical and chemical advantages, however, arise from the use of SiC over silicon: in addition to a much higher heat resistance, this ma...
