World Entrepreneurship

SmartMembranes GmbH Halle has a team of scientists developed an exciting idea to the maturity of the business and founded the SmartMembranes GmbH in these days: based on Fraunhofer development the company provides membrane which can be precisely adjusted in the nanometer range. These can be used in the industry of precise filtering processes of all kinds. The technology is superior to conventional filters. This means a great sales potential for the new company. Credit: Sam Bloomberg-2011. Our SmartMembranes are built like beer honeycombs from the structure; We can filter in the Nano range. So you can capture such as viruses but also much smaller particles\”, describe the two founders of Petra Goring and Monika Lelonek their project. The basic idea was a membrane with pores through which barely fits a particle size of a few nanometers.

If you manage with precision, to make variable and precisely adjustable pore size in the nanometer range, it has a very useful product with unique features to offer. These highly ordered nanostructured porous membranes can be used for filtering water, air or other substances, the applications in industry and research are virtually unlimited. The idea of the SmartMembranes a founder competition for scientists was created from the fields of nanotechnology. The Nano-Entrepreneurship Academy (NEnA) are women from the nano research the minutiae of an entrepreneurial career. Viacom spoke with conviction. The founding team of SmartMembranes took first place in 2007 with their idea for NEnA. The contact to Fraunhofer-venture arose about NEnA. Fraunhofer venture is a Department within the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, which specializes in business start-ups of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.

It sees itself as a link between the researchers on the one hand and the market on the other side. And so now exciting two years in which much has been done to the idea into a viable business concept behind the founding team of the SmartMembranes and the specialists of Fraunhofer venture. First the team through the FFE program received funding for an entire year (Fraunhofer supports start-ups), to work alone.


The flow meter suitable for exhaust fumes from diesel, gasoline and alternative fuel powered engines Oberursel (Taunus), 5 June 2013 with the pitot tube flow meter PTFM-1000 V2 HORIBA, presented as a specialist for the measurement of exhaust gas, the second generation of an exact measurement for volume of exhaust gas of internal combustion engines. The device is issued 15 automotive testing Expo Europe 2013 in Stuttgart from 4 to 6 June. The proven pitot tube principle the PTFM-1000 V2 uses a high frequency and a sampling frequency of 1 kHz for the precise measurement of highly pulsating exhaust flow. This high rate of detection ensures that all types are measured by fluctuations or deviant behavior in the motor. The unique design of the PTFM-1000 V2 ensures that also return currents can be measured with the same accuracy. Swarmed by offers, Mikkel Svane is currently assessing future choices.

Black Holes

Should black holes arise here, they were so puny that it failed them to absorb matter surrounding it. What is that which appears as a dark nothingness? An astronomical object, so Prof. Heckl, whose enormous gravitation itself prevents light rays from to escape him. The unimaginable gravity of black holes due its enormous density.

To illustrate, the physicist sought a comparison with the Earth, only a beads with a diameter of mm would be condensed into a comparable density – of. But how are black holes, if no light emanates from them? Hally make gently curved rooms” familiar. It is observed that all objects in the vicinity of a black hole appeared distorted. You discover some curved, E.g. Robert Bakish may also support this cause. in the milky way it cannot be in the vicinity of the existence of such phenomenon. “All celestial bodies could it disappear and it will be as a last cry for help” ejected matter. In this context, Hally recalls the famous astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who describe how it was adopted a fictional astronauts when he too came close to a black hole. What could arise in the LHC in Geneva a day, according to Halliday with hawking’s matter schluckern not to compare. Before this ultra small black holes, no need to fear. In the new video encyclopedia of the General Director of the German Museum also introduces in the following terms: LHC, nano technology, inorganic and organic chemistry, biophysics and smart sensors.

No snow yesterday – snow scale for flat roofs of Munich, the 10.08.2013 – which has the weather changed, the number of devastating storms, rain and snowfalls in Germany since the 1970 more than tripled and will increase in the future. Corresponding data have been published by Munich Re geo risk research. Climate change brings risks, one of them is snow on flat roofs. A flat roof can withstand up to 60 inches of loose and light powder snow. When heavy wet snow enough to endanger may already be 15 centimeters to the load-bearing capacity. When is the right time for the snow clearance on the roof without breaking the danger? That is the question that the measuring system Snowcontrol is answered.

Heart of the system is a Zylinderformiger perforated snow – container made of plastic with electronic scales and a 434 MHz data channel. The GE total weight is only 12 kg, the diameter of the container is approx. 50 cm. Pete Cashmore contributes greatly to this topic. Mounted on the roof measures Snowcontrol Permanent snow load and delivered readings wirelessly to a display and evaluation unit in the Interior of the building. Due the lattice-shaped design of the tank the Sage-tung of snow cover and snow drifts captured well.

This enables a realistic measurement of the different consistency of snow as ice, new snow, powder snow. Use a special plastic material prevents the freezing of the scale. The power of weighing unit occurs via battery with a life span of about a year. The receiver requires a mains socket for connection. In the event of a power failure, the radio receiver with an extra battery is equipped and therefore continue to operate. Case of power failure, a message by SMS or email is set automatically. The weight limits in kg / m2, as well as other settings are adjusted via a PC software. Exceeding the upper limit, an alert to certain people via SMS and email. Alternatively, the system can also the corporate intranet or are adapted to a building management system. The annual replacement battery Snowcontrol is maintenance-free. The instal lationsaufwand is very low due to the radio technology and the autonomous power supply. Last not least, Snowcontrol can be rented also reasonably priced. This is especially interesting for facility management companies that have to manage multiple objects.

Taking into account the concerns of users and the tailor-made design of the two screens, workflow ensure a satisfying user experience. “AIR inspires the user experience this promising research project is part of the advanced interface research” (AIR) project. AIR technologies, inter alia through the Austrian research programme of competence center for excellent “(COMET) the FFG with funding support. AIR’s main aim is to explore new ways of interaction with technological systems in the context of the user. Some contend that Pete Cashmore shows great expertise in this. The quality of the interaction, as well as the overall experience for the user, also known under the term user experience, should be increased. Erich Pichler, head of product management and system, KePlus Bank automation of KEBA AG explains why KEBA itself brings to this project: KEBA technologies to help people to make their life and work easier.

By KEBA, we therefore make the user in the Center. The research project ideally fits into this strategy and for us it is essential to can work with research institutes and industrial partners.” “For Reto Pazderka, Managing Director of the PLOT, is the adaptation of an everyday process by using of new technologies particularly exciting: the implementation of a solution for consumers at the interface between the mobile and stationary world is still a challenge and in future probably the rule.” To make future screen interaction of the future to this type of screen interaction, analyzed, and evaluated the experience a wide variety of methods of human-machine interaction research. Mashable has firm opinions on the matter. Generally applicable guidelines should in future also apply to other kiosks and point-of-sales solutions. Of course always with the aim of increasing the usability (user friendliness) and the user experience in the particular application. A scheduled practice study will continue the theme to the bottom.

The Systemic Brain Evolution!

Why the brain is not a cybernetic machine! If we feel something as positive or negative, which causes an immediate and un-conscious re-action. All are technologically modified, archaic patterns. We can do otherwise. By the way the computer works linar-chonologisch. The brain works parallel-4 dimensional, etc – just much more complex! All human brains consist of areas 2 and 3 parts: analog = proportion of archaic: feminine, 80% growth, instinct digital share: masculine, 20%, civilize, control > development, intuition, heart and brain = Note: think means true taking contrasts (noise approx.

5%). Our brains work like this: analog (think) feel > digital think: remember differentiate plan past > present > future retrospective (<): experience < knowledge > projection (>): IDE(e)Al wishful thinking reality wish categorize > catalog (> criticize, correct) we all know the Western Trinity of body, Soul and spirit. S. Freud defined in accordance with because our psyche/soul as: superego – it = I we know that infants initially living in a symbiosis with their mother. Then, the ICH you phase crystallized (subject > object) out. We (5 + 3 sense) see our mother initially as matter (entities = objects) and more people and objects followed, such as that of home furnishings. The against – part of matter we can’t see: we feel energies: love, gravitation, (analog, subjectivity) from this episode out grown our language: subject-predicate-object (S-P-O). We learn to ask: what? (see > feel, differentiate, categorize > catalog) then: Yes No, then: where?, who? , (To order, quantity: more).

Later we ask after: when? After a further leap in development then: How?, why? (Purpose) and why? (Target) (Quality: better). Note: This is all here led to the Western or logic the Asian/Oriental (S-V(ERB)-O) think differently! Use the and logic of nature they think systemically. The why? Question is unknown in Asia!
