The world’s largest offshore wind farm

The world’s largest offshore wind farm, the Hornsea Project One project located off the coast of the UK, is to start generating this month, helping to fill the gap left open by the UK’s failing nuclear industry. When the project reaches full operation in 2020, it is expected to generate enough power to supply the needs of well over 1 million UK homes. https://reneweconomy.com.au/worlds-largest-wind-farm-to-begin-production-this-week-in-uk-78677/

A machine that extracts carbon from the atmosphere

Climeworks is a Swiss company whose goal is to make it possible to capture CO₂ from the air for below $100 per ton. They believe that by 2030 there will be a global average price on carbon in the range of $100 to $150 a ton. Currently only a few European countries have made progress in assessing a high price on carbon however Climeworks believe more countries will price carbon. Then a company that sells a product or uses a process that creates high emissions (an airline, for instance, or a steel maker) could be required to pay carbon-removal companies $100 per metric ton or more to offset their CO₂ output. Or a government might use carbon-tax proceeds to directly pay businesses to collect and bury CO₂. www.nytimes.com/2019/02/12/magazine/climeworks-business-climate-change.html

A solar powered tent for the homeless

This solar powered tent folds up into a rollaway backpack and was produced by girls who hope that one day, their tent will improve the lives of people experiencing homelessness in their community. The teens, none of whom had coded, soldered, sewn, or 3D-printed before they joined forces, won a $10,000 grant from the Lemelson-MIT Program to develop the invention. They were recruited by DIY Girls, a nonprofit that teaches girls from low-income communities about engineering, maths and science, to go after the grant. https://www.buildingandinteriors.com/10205/

A necklace that protects women from assault

The Women’s Safety XPRIZE of $1 million was awarded to Leaf Wearables. The official challenge was to create a device costing less than $40 that can “autonomously and inconspicuously trigger an emergency alert while transmitting information to a network of community responders, all within 90 seconds.” Leaf had the advantage of having already shipped a product along these lines, the Safer pendant. https://safety.xprize.org/prizes/womens-safety/teams/leaf_wearables

A clever way to take revenge on thieves

An engineer has designed a Apple HomePod box that is “enticing” for any thief. It’s GPS-enabled, so its journey can be tracked once it leaves his home perimeter. It records video with embedded mobile phones, no matter how the thief picked up the parcel. And, once triggered, it sprays half a kilo of glitter. To add insult to injury it includes a can of “fart spray,” programmed to automatically spray after the glitter explosion is triggered. Reactions by the thieves are captured on the video. www.smh.com.au/world/north-america/thieves-stole-a-package-from-an-engineer-so-he-created-a-trap-using-glitter-and-fart-spray-20181219-p50n57.html

A groundbreaking solution to flood-prone slums

Dutch architectural firm Waterstudio has engineered flood-resistant City Apps, which use available space on water to convert slum dwellings into useful structures. These waterborne structures built from standard sea-freight containers with solar panels on the roof and floating foundations of recycled plastic bottles are suitable for installing and upgrading sanitation, electricity, water filtration, medical clinics, community kitchens, workshops, classrooms, housing and communication. They can quickly add essential services to adapt to cities’ changing needs and can be moved easily to where they are needed most. http://www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/architects-worldwide-invent-groundbreaking-waterborne-solutions-to-climate-change-part-4?slumsutm_campaign=2018-12-15&utm_medium=morning-edition&utm_source=inkl
