Innovative Way of Changing Tiles Colors Ideal for Greener Environment

In Physics, we learned that white surface can be used to reflect heat whereas a dark surface is ideal to absorb heat and that is how it has been reflected on the tiles color design and implementation targeted for different seasons and environment conditions. While the white and shining tiles is suitable to reflect heat during summer season, and the dark color tiles are ideal to absorb heat to keep your house warmer during winter season, have you ever wonder how good it would be if the tiles color can be varied based on ambient temperature or environment seasonal change so that you get the best benefits out of them? Good news now with the innovative solution from a team of recent MIT graduates, the color changing tiles can be an ideal solution best fitted to seasonal and weather change based on ambient temperature and material reactions.

Panasonic Transforms Bed into Wheelchair

If Transformers can make lives better for the paralyzed, it will take the form of the Panasonic Robotic Bed. Much like Toyota’s thought-controlled wheelchair, the Hybrid Assistive Limb and Rodem, an ergonomic electric wheelchair, Panasonic’s robotic wheelchair provides a solution to mobility problems for the aged and handicapped. The upper half of the mattress of Panasonic’s Robotic Bed can rise while the lower half slides from under the bed through a motorized feature. Once it is transformed into a wheelchair, it is smart enough to avoid obstacles and people to avoid collisions.
