iMicro

Invented by: Antony Van Leeuwenhoek

iMicro is a small device clad in a semi-teardrop shape with a multi-aspherical lens on the wider end of the tool. According to the outfit, the lens’ dedicated design, in conjunction with the optical hardware already on the phone, achieves high magnification performance and low aberration, ensuring it produces a high resolution image with no discernible distortion even on the edges. When used, the device is able to achieve 100x full optical magnification, with the ability to achieve up to 800x magnification with digital zoom involved (exact maximum magnification depends on the phone model).

iMicro, also known as the Fingertip Microscope is a portable microscope that makesit possible for you to have a look at small things while on the go.This one of a kinddevice has a comparable optical performance that is quite to similar to those foundin a professional microscope. You will, therefore, get the same performance but at alesser cost since you are only using your smartphone.

Coffee power

Invented by: Arthur Kay

The residents of London are known for tea drinking, but in fact each of them consumes an average of 2.3 cups of coffee a day as well.  But now, it won’t just be commuters that are running on coffee in the morning.  London buses will in part run on oil produced from coffee grounds.

City authorities have mandated that buses be fueled by B20, a mixture of ordinary diesel and biofuels, typically made from products such as waste cooking oil and tallow from meat packing companies.  It requires no modifications to be made to bus engines.

But as of late November, the fuel mix now contains small amounts of the product of a start-up company called Bio-Bean.  Working in partnership with Royal Dutch Shell, the oil produced from coffee grounds now forms part of the fuel mix.  So far, the company has only produced about 1,600 gallons of the fuel, enough to power one bus for a year.  But they are working to make much more.

Londoners’ coffee habit produces about 200,000 tons of used grounds each year.  Bio-bean collects that waste from coffee shops and factories and processes the sludge into oil.  In case you are wondering, even though coffee-based oil has a strong coffee smell, by the time it is processed, distilled and blended into the other components of the B20 fuel, the smell is gone.

London still struggles with serious air pollution problems.  Its 9,500 buses are major contributors to the poor air quality.  About a sixth of the fleet are hybrids and the city wants to convert buses to run on electricity or hydrogen.  But meanwhile, at least to some extent, London buses now run on coffee.

Bio-bean is part of a growing trend of enterprises focused on creating a circular economy, where the end of a product can be recycle into a new product.
