2) New Electricity-Generating Backpack Lightens the Load on Soldiers
Lighting Pack is able to generate electricity as soldiers walk and run through the field, eliminating the need for them to carry batteries.
3) Novel Reusable Sponge Could Revolutionize Ocean Oil Spill Cleanup
The technology can capture 90 times its own weight in oil from both above and below the water's surface and is reusable.
4) Ice Blaster Could Revolutionize Industrial Cleaning
The lceStorm90--an industrial cleaning machine that uses crushed ice cubes as a blast media--can clean using a tenth of the water required for pressure washers.
5) Digital Copilot Technology Makes Single-Pilot Flights Safer
Studies show that single-pilot flights are more dangerous than two-pilot flights, mainly due to an increased workload associated with flying solo.
6) NASA-Designed System Offers Environmentally-Friendly, Controlled Rock Splitting
The technology provides an environmentally-friendly method for splitting apart rock formations in a controlled manner without the use of explosives or hydraulics.
Last year's R&D 100 Award recipients were truly exceptional, but this group represented only a small fraction of the legacy of the R&D 100s family--which has grown to thousands during the program's 56 year history--and now also includes Special Recognition and Editor's Choice recipients, as well as the R&D 100 Award Finalists. Together they represent the bright past, present and future of science and innovation.
The legacy will continue again this fall, when the 2018 R&D 100 Awards takes place, Nov.16, 2018, in Orlando, FL. Applications for the 2018 R&D 100 Awards are still being accepted.
Apply today if you have an exceptional product or process that was first available for purchase or licensing between January 1, 2017 and March 31, 2018 for your chance to be recognized--and honored at the black-tie gala event. The extended deadline to submit is July 2, 2018. Visit https://www.rd100conference.com to apply.
