Technology Production Outline Summary


Technology Production

Technology Production

Innovation hubs is a project to establish national, community-based, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to work in the fields related to technology; human; and economic development.  It shall be professional groups to make use of the potentials of the following sectors in each community, in the world to achieve optimal efficiency in using the national human, natural, and financial resources, namely:

  1. Inventors, experts and artisans;
  2. Financial institutions and businessmen;
  3. Universities, research and training institutions;
  4. Businesses and entrepreneurs in production and services;
  5. Government departments and authorities

Innovation hubs shall conduct and promote innovation, development and dissemination of compatible technologies by practical application of inventions and research findings. Simply, it shall be integrated workshops plus a number of specialized assisting units. It shall bring together pioneers and investors and facilitate the cooperation between them and the society to discover new and better horizons for investment, employment, and production.

Innovation hubs shall create the kernels for investments in the form of pilot project, models, and prototype.  It shall execute these activities along with economic, social and environmental assessments.  It aims to facilitate and promote the dissemination process, which will be carried out by groups of investors and pioneers in its final economical form for operation.

Innovation hubs shall provide the following:

  1. Integrated technical backup from national and international experts.
  2. Documentation and information.
  3. Funding for the pilot project stage as no-profit loans or securities.
  4. Assistance Integrated technical assistance in legal and intellectual property protection.

The idea to establish Innovation hubs came as a result to the clear need to ease the difficulties that face any pioneering projects and innovations in dealing with the existing institutions, i.e.:

  1. Commercial and specialized banks.
  2. Government departments.
  3. Private sectors establishments.
  4. Universities and research centers.

It is clear that despite each of these institutions have appreciated roles in the economy but, unfortunately, and for sensible reasons they are not originally prepared and equipped administratively, financially or/and technically for the role required to bridge the widening gap between science and research at one hand and production and technology at the other. This situation requires a call for establishing a number of organizations to cooperate and compete in this field. There is a great need and necessity to move the geared potentials and reform the traditional practices and institutions to achieve appropriate total development and social welfare.  The great achievements and services to the development of humanity by the works of Nicola Tesla are appropriate examples.

In summary, Innovation hubs shall contribute to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Mobilization of economic and investment environment.
  2. Contribute in problem-solving and production advances.
  3. Reformation & integration of traditional businesses, practices and institutions.
  4. Ensuring optimal utilization of national and international resources.
  5. Promotion of jobs creation, employment quality, business opportunities, and fighting poverty.
  6. Enhancing national and international cooperation and understanding.

There are huge amounts of knowledge, markets & capital at any local & international levels. Innovation hubs shall bring people together to access these resources safely and efficiently.

Innovation hubs shall:

  1. Be independent expert forum for discussing and sharing opinions about all issues related to socio-economic development & ethical professionalism.
  2. Support the production of testing models, prototypes & pilot projects.
  3. Provide excellent national & international expert technical assistance & backup.
  4. Facilitate and protect the exchange of ideas, data & information; as well as the interests of innovators, investors & societies.
  5. Organize and secure low-profit loans and insurances to fund innovation.
  6. Provide full & balanced legal protection & assistance for new businesses & ideas.
  7. Transform the life of communities from technology consumption to technology production.

There is even more productive way than inviting innovators & entrepreneurs. That is the “Proactive” or the “Push” approach. With this method innovation hubs can make the needed initiatives and create businesses, then select potential entrepreneurs and sell the complete businesses to them, not just only the technology.

Even during a period of incubation innovation hubs maintain or outsource the consultancy services to strengthen the chances of success and productivity. So, innovation hubs must consider beside technology production, transfer, and adaptation creating a parallel division for business production, transfer, and adaptation.

New Design Concept for Sailing Ship Mast

Boxed Ship Mast

A new design concept for sailing masts. I called it “Boxed Mast”. It is structurally and economically more sound than the conventional mast design; and it is also much better than the tripod design and the one used in The Maltese Falcon.
It also provides better energy saving and safety from sinking and weight and materials reduction.

Costa Concordia Wreck Removal Alternative Proposal

Costa Concordia Wreck Removal Alternative Proposal

Costa Concordia Wreck Removal Alternative Proposal

I think the idea of moving the wreck of Costa Concordia to upright position on a newly erected sub-sea platform before floating is not the best solution. It is time-consuming and materials-consuming and it is by far more expensive. And definitely it will be impossible to keep it upright during the towing phase.

It would have been better to float and tow it in its tilted position because keeping a damaged ship upright after shifting and distorting its center of gravity and after its bottom cavity was destroyed is clearly huge task.

I suggest a much easier and cheaper approach, as follows:
1. Make many small light weight tanks
2. Sink equal numbers of these tanks on both sides along the length of the wreck
3. Tie each tank with at least three tanks on the opposite side of the wreck with steel cables passing underneath the wreck
4. Tighten the mesh of steel cables to bring the opposite tanks as close as possible
5. Start pumping the water out of the air-tight tanks simultaneously to make them float and lift the wreck
6. Add more connected tanks as much as needed on both sides of the wreck to raise the load substantially
7. While it is afloat and still on its tilted position it is possible to tow the wreck away to a ship dismantling yard

The current operation i as follows:

The Titan/Micoperi plan for the salvage of the Costa Concordia

1- The tieback chains prevent the wreck from sliding

2- Meanwhile fabrication and then installation of sub-sea platform to support the ship

3- Install the flotation tanks on the port side by welding to framework which was previously attacked to the hull

New All-in-One Desktop Computer Design

New All-in-One Desktop Computer Design

I propose to all entrepreneurs a new design for tower desktop; called “Top-Tower form”, (T.T.). The end product shall have all the performance of a versatile, upgradeable, powerful and affordable desktop together with many features of a compact laptop.

Desktop Workstation New AIO Design Details

Desktop Workstation New AIO Design Details

It is very efficient, practical, economical and attractive. It shall solve many issues at once and will become the best alternative to conventional desktop and laptop in business and personal uses.

Since all desktops are now using slim monitors (LCD or Plasma) then there is a chance to have a design whereby the monitor could be integrated and forms a removable part of tower case.

Not like Apple’s iMac computer models released from 2004, and other All-in-One designs, where all PC components are integrated behind an LCD screen. The new design shall do the opposite; by mounting a changeable slim monitor to one side of full-,mid- or mini-tower with a top handle.

The monitor shall act as a slightly tilting side cover to the case, or the case shall have a trapezoidal x-section. All the components of the front panel may be moved below the monitor which will transform the side panel to become the new front panel. You can make the conventional PSU slimmer and/or just fix it vertically to reduce case depth.

You can initiate a standard trend whereby new tower cases shall have the monitor as a customizable integral part. A separate fold-able or detachable keyboard with an additional touch pad may be added as optional, or just keep a conventional mouse.

Also, you can add a single-leaf or two-leaf sliding or hinged cover to the monitor; plus a single Y-shaped power cord.

An alternative to this design is to make the monitor fixed on adjustable mounts on the left- side of ordinary case. Both designs can be applied with the second as modification for the present models of tower cases.

Hard disks; expansion cards; and optical drives shall be mounted and ejected just from outside of the new front panel below the monitor without opening the case, with the same mechanism used with optical drives in laptops.

I expect these designs will be very attractive and useful for the majority of computer owners who cannot afford to buy a laptop or prefer using a desktop.

The new designs have the following features:
1- occupy less space;
2-shorter cables;
3- changeable monitor;
4- compact and portable;
5- maintain component flexibility;
6- lesser materials and total weight and
7- less expensive in transport and upgrading.
It can go together with manufacturing conventional Desktop Tower Cases.

Major companies realized that the conventional tower desktop needs new design to solve a number of important difficulties. So they came up with the AIO monitor concept but the concept behind the design was based on integrating the case components into the back of the monitor. By doing so, they sacrificed important elements as of upgradability and AIO became only a immobile laptop. It failed.

Now computer manufacturers reversed the concept of AIO monitor and integrated the monitor onto the desktop tower case to create AIO case; but did not solve the issues of expansion cards, monitor positioning and the access to the motherboard. This failed also.

I did not try to improve the AIO case but my design is independent fresh approach. My design offers a number of important advantages to the monitor, motherboard, hard disks, expansion cards, upgradability, maintenance, keyboard, weight, aesthetics and cost.

I am posting to hear form someone interested in manufacturing this deign under patent license.
