      site: http://ishow.inventionhome.com/newPortfolio.aspx?TFN=252R35173PT893186S1780&tif=


      Purpose & Benefits


      Allows electrical power to be transferred from one room to another despite obstruction from a door.

      Accepts both plugs and sockets on its extendable end via interchangeable plates.

      Adapts to fit any door with an adjustable design that can be raised or lowered.

      Eliminates the problem of an extension cord blocking a door from closing.

      Operates in multiple countries thanks to various interchangeable plug and outlet plates.

      Problems Solved
      A person may desire an electrical device to be operated in one room of a house or building but there may be no outlet into which the device may be plugged, or all sockets may already be occupied. The only alternative may be to not use the device, or to run an extension cord from one room to another. However, this process may eliminate the door's ability to fully close. Or the person simply may not own an extension cord that is long enough to be functionable.

      Detailed Description & Features
      Door Extension Cord is an adjustable extension cord which features a socket on one side and a reeled extension cord on the opposite end. The device is intended to fit underneath doorways, allowing a user to connect electrical devices in a home without the worry of cords interfering with the opening or closing of a door. This innovative product may be comprised of a flat piece of plastic capable of fitting underneath a doorway, an electrical plug-end, and an electrical socket end. There may be two adjustable fittings that extend vertically from either end of the flat piece which can be raised or lowered. One of the fittings may be a standard socket-outlet while the other end may contain an adapter with a reeled extension, stored internally, which allows the adapter to travel outward. The device may also retract should the reeled end be pulled tightly. The adapter may be designed to accommodate various interchangeable plug and outlet plates to suit the need of the user. Once connected, the device may act as an extension cord to carry electricity from a wall outlet to a device in another location without physical interference from a door.

      Door Extension Cord can be constructed using durable, long-lasting, and flexible materials such as plastic. The device’s internal wiring can be constructed with general electrical materials such as copper and other conductive metals. Exact size, measurement, and color specifications may vary upon manufacturing.

        Description

        Battery-powered LED Lamps are controlled by invisibly encoded information in a flashlight beam. Lamps can deliver full power for as long as needed, and only as needed.

        US patent 9,386,667 B2

        Banish the night with a flick of the wrist:
        ▬ turn on outdoor LED lights with a flashlight;
        ▬ lamp batteries draw power only as needed;
        ▬ lamps can provide full, useful illumination (unlike landscape lighting);
        ▬ they respond only to invisible information encoded in the flashlight;
        ▬ no false-tripping, the bane of motion detectors;
        ▬ useful any place without AC power: detached patio, car port, rural livestock pens, even inside unpowered buildings;
        ▬ lamps can be solar powered -- a four-inch square cell provides 60 Watts equivalent power for an hour each night;
        ▬ flashlights and lamps can be sold as sets, and individual units offered at a higher margin. Once deployed, expansion of lamp coverage becomes a natural progression (more units sold);

          EXTERNAL ELECTROMOTIVE DRIVE UNIT FOR MOTOR VEHICLES

          So far we have been familiar with different solutions of vehicles that have classic drive unit by fossil fuels, hybrid vehicles and purely electric vehicles.
          Our product is an electric vehicle, which connects to powered vehicle and by its motor power starts composition made of these two types of vehicles.
          To a classic vehicle, it provides abilities such as

          1) drive unit on electricity
          Significantly lower electrical energy price comparing the price of fossil fuels even up to 75%. This price is even lower if the consumer has its own electrical energy producer

          2) Carbon monoxide emission amounts 0%, the vehicle does not produce neither exhaust gases nor any other detrimental products.

          3) Level of noise is lower per 90% comparing vehicles with classic drive units.

          4) Vibrations made due to engine operations are also lower as comparing the piston engine it works with less motion of movable parts and less friction.

          5) Energy utilization of energy consumed is up to 90%. Energy consumed that motor converts into mechanical energy has high degree of utilization comparing the engine with internal combustion, which high percentage of energy made by derivatives combustion – thermal expansive energy, releases without the possibility to use it and that energy efficiency level in fossil fuel vehicles is maximum up to 35%.

          6) Vehicle has two driving axles that can work at the same time or by turning on only one of them at the time getting this way characteristic of vehicle for off-road driving.

          7) Vehicle can easily be connected with mechanical connection with other types of vehicles such as semi-trailer achieving its compatibility - same drive unit for different means of transportation.

          8) Vehicle provides higher vitality in traffic to a consumer as it has two separate drive units.

          9) Vehicle provides additional trunk solving the problem of lack of conveying space in case of vehicles with small trunks.

          10) Greater maneuverability of vehicle when having difficulty with parking and traffic jams, as the wheels are steered by direction

          11) Better distribution of masses as external electromotive drive unit gives the role of stabilizer by its mass and prevents skidding by direction in case of sharp maneuvers.

          12) Greater passive security of passengers in case of blow from the backside of vehicle, as in this case electromotive drive unit has the role of amortization area, which will receive greater part of blow energy.

          13) Vehicle has the ability to produce electric energy and supply external consumers when it is in parking position.

          14) Additional self-charging of batteries by solar photovoltaic cells when it is in parking position that can be blinds like pulled out and cover the roof of the trunk of motor vehicle and upper surface of powered vehicle, making batteries self-charging and giving the vehicle protection from strong sun or other atmosphere changes that can damage the car.

          15) Three working modes:

           Electro mod when the vehicle is moved by power of electromotor, which is supplied by electric energy from battery cells.

           Hybrid mod, when electromotor of motor vehicle and motor of powered vehicle work together, vehicle in this situation has sum of power of these two motors, and also in this mod self-charging of batteries of motor vehicle over the electricity generator is realized.


           Mod when powered vehicle starts its own engine on fossil fuels and the engine of motor vehicle is not active; this the situation battery cells are also self-charging by electricity generator, which is placed in the last vehicle on the picture.

          16) Easy access to the components of vehicle in case of service or repair.

          17) The possibility for vehicle theft is difficult as beside the regular barriers against theft it is necessary to decode control interface from the back motor vehicle.

            Description

            Concentrating of solar energy is a highly important task in the field of development of solar energy systems. The main principle of concentration is the focusing of solar lights on a smaller area of receiver either semiconductor solar cell or thermal absorber. Thus, the application of concentrators allows to reduce the amount of expensive solar cells or thermal receivers and to reduce the price of the solar energy system.
            Existing solar energy concentrators, either mirror-reflection or lens-refraction based, have many disadvantages and economically are not effective.
            Completely new, low cost, high efficient flat planar concentrator of solar rays is proposed. Concentrator has several advantages in comparison with existing parabolic through or Fresnel lens type concentrators. The proposed concentrator has the simple planar panel structure and it does not require a significant focal distance. The solar rays are incident to the flat surface and concentrated on to the one edge of panel, where the receivers are placed. The efficiency of concentrator is 80%. The other advantages are simplified sun tracking, less wind loading and small maintenance costs.
            The proposed innovation is a cardinally new approach in solar technologies. The concentrator effectively can be used for concentration of solar rays and transformation of solar energy into electric or thermal energies.

                {OLDER PUBLICATION/INVITATION}
                A Hellenic (Greek) Laboratory, highly specialized in Pure Mechanical Systems, has developed an Innovative Transmission Mechanism with many significant Applications and is looking for license agreement and/or technical cooperation agreement and/or Partners involved in the production of the Mechanism and/or its Applications.
                This Transmission Mechanism (DOT: Distributive Oscillating Transmission) interconnects, in the most effective way, a plurality of Elements with a main Shaft, said Elements and Shaft rotating coaxially around a common axis with different but completely programmable angular velocities.
                This interconnection is achieved via planetary systems with some non-circular gears which have almost the same mechanical efficiency as the standard ones.
                The aforementioned Transmission Mechanism can perform literally any desired Cycle, Thermodynamic or not, even one with an odd number of asymmetrical strokes, with the greatest possible degree of mechanical efficiency in both directions.
                One major application of this Transmission Mechanism is an Advanced Internal Combustion Engine (THE: Toroidal Hermetic Engine) with Three Rotating Toroidal Pistons, performing in the simplest possible way an almost Ideal Thermodynamic Cycle:
                - Intake (of pure air-fuel mixture or mixed with exhaust gas, if necessary),
                - Compression (up to any desired Compression Ratio),
                - Combustion (Isochoric, for any desired Period, almost exactly or exactly, if necessary),
                - Expansion (for any desired Period,..

                    The solar tracker is a device to rotate solar panels as the sun moves from east to west throughout the day. Solar tracker increases the energy production up to 40% as compared to static solar panel installation but solar tracker costs more than the price of solar panels itself. By completely changing traditional methods and the technology used in the solar tracker, we have made a most inexpensive dual axis solar tracker that collects up to 40% more energy from the sun with a regular solar panel.
