What does it take to design and build multi-purpose and multi-tasking devices? Report on “multitasking nanomachine” by https://scitechdaily.com: A multitasking nanomachine that can act as a heat engine and a refrigerator at the same time has been created by RIKEN engineers. The device is one of the first to test how quantum effects, which govern the behavior of particles on the smallest scale, might one … Continue reading Multitasking Devices!
A domino effect as demonstrated in the video above is produced when a linked series of events successively create a mechanical impact on the next item in the sequence to produce a chain reaction. Do not underestimate them as some harmless fun! Physicist Van Leeuwen has even presented a calculation to explore if a sequence of dominoes can topple a skyscraper-sized block at http://arxiv.org/abs/1301.0615. Each … Continue reading The Domino Effect – A Colorful Demo of a powerful mechanical phenomena that could topple a skyscraper!
