We need artificially intelligent video surveillance systems, which can spot and detect packages, which are left unattended at airports, train stations and on buses. How would such a system work? Well it would identify packages, suitcases and backpacks, which were left without a human next to them and trigger a sensor and warning and thus that information would show up immediately on a screen for the security personal viewing the close circuit TV systems. But how could this specifically work? ...more
There has sure been a lot of research on Locust Plagues throughout the world and there is a good reason too. Locust Plagues can wipe out an entire crop in minutes and devastate hundreds and thousands of square miles of agricultural lands.
The problems created by these massive locust swarms has been recorded thru writings in ancient and religious history. But some are now asking how do they do it? How do locust swarms fly hundreds and hundreds of miles over water without stopping, landin ...more
The robotic future involves many aspects, some good and others not so pleasant, but isn't that in keeping with the history of mankind? Humans are always having wars and conflicts over various things. In the future many of our battles of political will over another civilization will be fought not by human soldiers but rather by robots. Which some would say might be a good thing although the robots will be killing other people in foreign lands.
Of course on the good side of things we will ...more
The chaos and order debate came up again recently in an online think tank and this time is was nothing like the regular debates, no, this time it was with regards to locust plagues and the question was is the locust swarm a chaotic mess or is their a method to this highly evolved creatures madness? One researcher who is an expert in Locust Swarms; Mr Warren Powers thinks that there is a remote possibility that in the locust swarm there might actually be more going on than we assume and so he ...more
The Locust Plagues threaten to devastate crops in Africa, but can we use modern technology, namely acoustic directional sound waves, to defeat them? One research believes it is possible and announced his plans to do so in an online think tank recently. Warren Powers has a plan and has done research which leads him to believe it is now possible to beat these locust plagues once and for all.
An acoustical sound wave beam will be blasted at the Locust Swarm while they fly over the lake cau ...more
At least a couple of researchers on the Locust Plagues which threaten to cause crop failures have stated that they believe the answer to stopping these massive swarms are to use acoustic weapons and directed sound waves. The waves will have to be high powered and directed toward the locust swarm in mid-flight. Researcher Warren Powers believes it is all possible.
Can we hit these locusts over Lake Victoria where they swarm every year? Well, regarding this target intercept point for a de ...more
You know when you are driving your car and all of a sudden you have to let off the gas and even hit your brake sometimes? Well, you just wasted energy, kinetic energy and we should never waste energy especially for fuel economy reasons. As let us face it with Hurricane Season coming and seventy dollar per barrel oil prices on the horizon we need better fuel economy and well, we need it like now.
On many hybrid cars the cars actually charge the battery when braking and deceleration using ...more
There will be times when an anchored ship in the US Military needs to move fast and go after a rapidly increasing situation and task which must be accomplished immediately. If the anchors are deployed then they need a capacity to drop the rest of the chain and leave the anchor there. With a backup anchor on-board.
The anchor, which is left will be fitted with an RFID homing tracking device and it can be retrieved at a later date by specially fitted UUV underwater unmanned vehicle. The U ...more
One of the problems most municipalities encounter is abandoned automobiles. And if something is not done they pile up all over the place. Even if they are taken away under contract from a towing company, usually the tow company cannot get more than $150.00 for them, even for scrap and thus they do not want them either. Every city needs and abandoned automobile action plan and it needs to be known by the citizenry and dealt with to the satisfaction of all. If such an action plan is not in plac ...more
Is it possible to use ELF Extremely Low Frequencies to lower the jet stream and blow away locust plagues in North America? Indeed it is possible for jet streams to touch the ground although rare and it is possible that 200 plus mile an hour winds would certainly take care of a swarm of insects.
Perhaps such an ability to lower the jet stream could sway migratory birds with human stains of bird flu to pick another route or be blown off course? We could do this although it might take a l ...more
