Need of the hour ? : TEAM



By TEAM , I mean :  Technology Evaluation and Acquisition Minister



Whose job description will be :


Remain constantly on look-out for developing / developed technologies from around the World , evaluate their relevance to India’s myriad problems and acquire the same from the developers ( including patent rights / IP rights , to exploit it / improve upon it )


Make available these acquired technologies to Indian Companies ( both , in private and in public sectors ) / NGOs / Start-Ups etc , FREE of cost ( conditions apply in respect of production targets / pricing / time to implement / after-sales service etc ! )





Following are some such technologies :
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Problems : Unavailability of clean drinking water in 

drought / famine affected areas


              : Pollution thru Plastic Bottles / Mountains 

of Land Fills – Garbage Dumps


Tech from : Prof  Omar  Yaghi ( Uni of California ) / 

Skipping Rock Labs ( UK )

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Problem : Loss of Forest cover / Rampant 

Desertification



Tech from : Zhong Zhihua, Chinese Scientist 

(Chongqing Jiaotong University ).


Details at :



Problem : Millions sleeping in Streets / Slums, for 

want of affordable houses

Tech from : Chris Kelsey ( Cazza ) / WinSun ( China ) / Formwerkz ( Singapore )

Details at : 

·         Plastic Skyscrapers







·         Future Home is here !





·         From Waste to Wealth














Problem : Traffic Jams on City Roads / Hours to reach Office-Home


Tech from : Electric Front Wheel for Bicycle from Geo-Orbital ( Cambridge – USA )


Details at :







Problem : Charging of Batteries of Electric Vehicles takes hours !


Tech from : Flash Battery Charger from Stores-Dot ( Israel )


Details at : 

·         A Radical Radial Revolution





·         All Charged Up ?




Problem : No transmission lines for taking electricity to far-flung villages


Tech from : Bicycle Generated Power from Manoj Bhargava ( BillionsinChange )


Details at :








Problem :  No way to store ( for use at night ), billions of KWH of Solar Power


Tech from : PowerPack Batteries from Elon Musk ( TESLA )



Problem :  Fossil Fuel Power killing millions / Urgent need to generate Solar Power


Tech from :  All over the World


Details at :





Problem : Dependence on import for Li-ion batteries /

 Fast charging button batteries


Tech from :

 #  Venkataraman Thangadurai and colleagues ( University of Calgary / Canada )

     Thangadurai  says :

“ The technology we have developed would enable absolutely stable, robust, safe, high-powered, all solid state lithium batteries for future energy storage , which have many potential applications , including charging of electric vehicles 

--------------------------------------------

#  And then there is Israeli firm  Stores-Dot , which claims to be developing a car battery  that can be charged in 5 minutes and give a range of 300 miles !

--------------------------------

#  A research group at the University of California (UCR), Riverside’s Bourns College of Engineering has developed nano silicon anodes for high-performance lithium-ion batteries, by simply using a low-cost chemical process and waste glass bottles.

The batteries will not only extend the range of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and electric vehicles, but also provide extra power with fewer charges to laptops, cell phones, and similar personal electronics.



Problem :  High value currency notes facilitating generation of BLACK MONEY
Tech from : RFID technology from Sanjay Sarma ( MIT )
Details at :

Problem : Making available high speed Internet to entire India ( remotest corner )

Tech from : GoogleLoons  ( from Google ) / Drones ( from Facebook )



Problem :  Poor road construction methods resulting in perennial pot-holes

Tech from :  Cold Asphalt technology from COLAS ( France )
