"Invisibility Wetsuits" for protection against shark attack while you swim.

Scientists from the University of Western Australia (UWA), with the help of designers Shark Attack Mitigation Systems (SAMS) has developed this wetsuits. It toked 2 years of research and development.

In tradition black wetsuits swimmer looks like a seal animal which food for shark and recent discovery that sharks are colour blind they came up with this idea of camouflage wetsuits.

According to UWA professor Shaun Collin told to Guardian that “Many animals in biology are repelled by noxious animals – prey that provide a signal that somehow says ‘Don't eat me’ and that has been manifest in a striped pattern. We are using a lot of nature's technology, based on high-contrast-based banding patterns. The wearer will be obvious, and the idea is the shark will see that as an unpalatable food item and swim right by.”

This Suites are available preorder on Radiator with a price tag of $495.

The AIR-igator collects the condensate water from air conditioners and stores it.

Air-igator consists of a 24” diameter reservoir with a latching cover, submersible pump, and a float control. The AIR-igator collects the condensate water from air conditioners and stores it, until is an adequate amount to run the low volume irrigation system. The float inside the reservoir will then start the pump, running until the tank is empty or signal a timer, allowing the system to run at a specified time. The 120V, 1200GPH pump and float are plugged into the nearest 120V outlet (within 15’) and the AIR-igator will run unattended.

Fire-proof coating that could give protecton against intense heat

There are many fire proof coating available in the market for building materials and structures but they are no good against intense heat they break down at between 150-250°C, but this is going to change as researchers at CSIRO Australia have come up with a new coating material called HIPS (‘hybrid inorganic polymer system’) it can withstand temperatures of over 1000°C.

HIPS coatings contain an inorganic geopolymer resin, and a small component of polymer additives, it can be applied as easily as paint, it has the potential to form thin fireproof coatings on timbers such as weatherboards, and on metals such as structural or galvanized steel. It can also protect brickwork, either as a thin coating or as a render. HIPS can be applied by spray equipment, roller or brush, and cures from ambient temperature to below 90°C, it can be cheaply made from industrial by-products.
