Thermoelectric Power Generation
Posted in Tech & Gadgets

Thermoelectric power generation using a Tellurex Z-Max Thermoelectric Module. By applying heat, they create a temperature difference across the two surfaces of the thermoelectric module, resulting in enough power to energize a connected light.

Plasma Speaker
Posted in Tech & Gadgets

This is an example of a (musical) solid state Tesla coil. Instead of relying on speakers to create vibrations in the air, the sound comes directly from the arcing electricity itself. Although the sound is much clearer, there is a chance of major injury.

(Just in time for the holidays, the Hubble Space Telescope has snapped a spectacular view of a star-forming region in our Milky Way galaxy that looks like a snow angel in deep space. A newly-formed star called S106 IR is shrouded in dust at the center of the image, and is responsible for the surrounding gas cloud’s hourglass-like shape and the turbulence visible within. Light from glowing hydrogen is colored blue in this image. )
