In Japan, earlier this year before the earthquake and tsunami hit, a new product was released that would enable those who ride bicycles to purify contaminated water sources making them palatable for drinking. Little did the Nippon Basic Company realize how important such achievements might become in the days and weeks ahead. Dubbed the Cycloclean, the bicycle can purify as much as five liters of water a minute. All a user has to do is put the bike on its stand and pedal in order to bring water up through the filters and turn it into clean drinking water. Innovations are always being made to mobile water purification systems, and it’s interesting to consider what the future might bring.
More research and development is put into military technology and innovation then any other industry or field. The evolution of the battlefield has occurred right in front of us, yet many people are unaware of how advanced the weaponry of the United States army and its allies has become. The battlefields our troops currently fight on are occupied by drones known as MQ-9 reapers and Predators, as well as a variety of unmanned land vehicles such as the SWORDS weapon system. Also we can’t forget about the advances in Fighter technology with the F-22 Raptor being on the forefront of aviation innovation.
