Your fridge and freezer run more efficiently when they’re full. D. intends to keep track of people by using biometrics (iris scan, fingerprint, voiceprint, photos, and other bio identification features) that will be encoded on cards (or implants.) DNA databanks are already giving computers an enormous ability to identify millions of americans via their DNA. The smartbox, similar to a black box for airplanes, records details about how your car is driven, which can result in cheap car insurance for responsible drivers.

Radiational cooling occurs when infrared radiation is emitted from an object’s surface, causing its temperature to decrease. Why don’t we use the resources being put towards alternate energies and push them towards making fossil fuels more efficient and clean? Philips designed a wooden Breakfast Tray that provides a secure surface for a leisurely breakfast in bed. During class, you'll have access to computer labs, microwaves, and robotics - and your instructors will show you how they work, how to take them apart, and how to put them back together.

But candles are warm, mellow, and create a sense of intimacy that cannot be reproduced by a light bulb. Unfortunately, all of this evidence doesn’t provide the gut intuition required to reject seductive rhetoric. The site’s great tools on energy resources are great, but the “Energy and You” page provides great perspective from which to see how energy use affects us all. And when electrons are "lost" from an atom, the free movement of these electrons constitutes an electric current.

He's also an avid mountain biker and laments that he didn't get to try out the electricity-producing exercise bicycles he describes in “Turning Sweat Into Watts.” “But I did take apart my wife's StairMaster to see how typical exercise machines work,” he says. Appropriately, Nikola Labs launched its product in the very building Tesla himself lived and eventually died in.
