China's severe winter air pollution problems may be worsened by changes in atmospheric circulation prompted by Arctic sea ice loss and increased Eurasian snowfall – both caused by global climate change.
CPR+ is a CPR mask with LED lights that offers user feedback throughout the resuscitation process. The device is one of six inventions is competing for Georgia Tech’s 2017 InVenture Prize.
The other inventors are: Dave Ehrlich, a computer engineering major; Samuel Clarke, a mechanical engineering and computer science major; and Ryan Williams, a computer engineering major.
Gaitway is a set of transportable parallel bars designed for children who need ambulatory physical therapy. The bars, which fold up to the size of a large suitcase with wheels, are designed to accommodate children as young as 15 months and as old as 10. Industrial design majors Veronica Young and Nora Johnson invented the device.
The invention is one of six competing for Georgia Tech’s 2017 InVenture Prize.
InternBlitz finds internships for students; automatically fills in their personal contact information and resume; and then sends applicants the extra, company-specific questions. It is similar to the online Common App students use to apply for colleges. The inventors are Murtaza Bambot, an industrial engineering major, and Nathan Dass, a computer science major.
The invention is one of six competing for the 2017 Georgia Tech InVenture Prize.
The CauteryGuard is a safer electrocautery device, which is used by doctors, veterinarians and other medical personnel to remove unwanted tissue and to stop bleeding. The CauteryGaurd automatically retracts when not in use, and the inventors said this removes any chance of accidental injury caused by the device during procedures.
The invention won the 2017 InVenture Prize.
The inventors are four biomedical engineering majors – Jack Corelli from Philadelphia; Hunter Hatcher from Marietta, Ga.; Devin Li from Corning, N.Y.; and Dev Mandavia, from Duluth, Ga.
Georgia Tech researchers are studying how toroidal droplets – which initially take the shape of a donut – evolve into spherical droplets by collapsing into themselves or breaking up into smaller droplets.
Triboelectric nanogenerators convert mechanical energy harvested from the environment to electricity for powering small devices such as sensors or for recharging consumer electronics. Now, researchers have harnessed these devices to improve the charging of molecules in a way that dramatically boosts the sensitivity of a widely-used chemical analysis technique. Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have shown that replacing conventional power supplies with TENG devices for charging the molecules being analyzed can boost the sensitivity of mass spectrometers to unprecedented levels.
