Tower of Pisa:
Located in the Piazza Dei Miracoli, Pisa, Italy, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Minaret is a world-famous and tourist destination as it is tilted 17 feet (5 degrees). There are 296 steps inside. It is made of white marble, 184 feet, and 5 inches high. The construction of the Afaq Minar was started in 1174 by the Italian architect Pisano. Little did he know that one day it would become the center of the world? Nor did he know that one of his mistakes would be hidden in it. The height of the tower was 185 feet.
When construction began, and when the three floors were completed, it began to lean to one side. The soil beneath the tower was soft on one side, and the ten-foot base was not strong enough to support its weight, so he started building new floors on the side where the tower was smaller to prevent this inclination. ۔ But this process made it even more bent. So construction stopped for the next hundred years.
Construction resumed on it in 1275. To replace the center of gravity, two floors were built apart from the other two, so construction was completed in the fourteenth century. But it used to bend a quarter of an inch every year, and now it is bent five degrees or 17 feet. In 1934, the Italian government stopped pouring concrete into its foundations. But this inclination continued to grow. It is said that Galileo Galilei, an Italian physicist, performed experiments on the tower to determine the speed of falling objects.
Device Control Through The ‘Eyes.’
This technology is similar to the remote control. It can be used for computers, televisions, tablets, and other devices, but with the “eyes”… especially for people with various physical disabilities.
Using the eyes, the user can access the free website Xfinity’s. After registering here, the user can control various devices using the buttons visible on the screen with his eyes only. The creator of the invention says that through this technology, some people with physical disabilities will enjoy the experience of changing TV channels for the first time.
Foods Are Always Fresh.
A large amount of food is lost due to improper storage. To reduce food and food waste, Apeel Sciences has developed a way to keep vegetables, fruits, and herbs fresh for longer. The company has developed a plant-derived edible oil that can triple the lifespan of fruits and vegetables. According to the company, the artificial peel has extended the freshness of avocados and lemons, while experiments on bananas are currently underway.
One such “smart” chair has been designed in Berlin, Germany, which provides extreme comfort and convenience to the seated. The auto-harmonic tilt in the chair constantly adjusts to the style and manner of the user’s body seat. The lever under the chair does not need to be used for this purpose.
Ordinary traditional locks depend on numbers or keys, and both can be easily forgotten. However, now the new technology has introduced a smart lock that can be recharged. This lock can be unlocked with fingerprints or a key. The lock’s memory can accommodate up to 10 fingerprints—this way, multiple people from the same family can use this lock at the same time.
Preparation Of Drinking Water From The Air:
After air, water is the most important factor for the survival of human life. In this regard, an invention in the form of a water dispenser has come to light. The invention is called Watergen, and it traps moisture in the air and converts it into clean drinking water. This machine is capable of producing 7 gallons of water a day. It can be run on electricity or solar energy. This machine can produce clean drinking water even in areas with high air pollution.
