EELUME the ‘snake robot’ can fix pipelines on the ocean floor

The deep-sea oil and gas industry has a vast and costly infrastructure to maintain. Wells, other equipment, and thousands of kilometers of the pipeline must be installed, inspected, and repaired. Now, cutting-edge underwater drones and robots are being developed that could make the work safer, cheaper, and less polluting.

Among them is Eelume, a six-meter-long, snake-like robot kitted out with #sensors and a camera at each end. It can be kept at a docking station at depths up to 500 meters (547 yards) for six months, without being brought back to the surface. The self-propelling robot can travel up to 20 kilometers before needing to return to its station to recharge and can swap out parts for different tasks, including tools to operate subsea valves, and cleaning brushes to remove marine growth and sediments.

Maintenance work at many deep-water wells and pipeline systems is already carried out by unmanned vehicles. But these vehicles typically need to be transported to the offshore site on a fully crewed ship and then remotely operated from onboard the surface vessel. That can cost up to $100,000 per day, according to Pål Liljebäck, chief technology officer with Eelume Subsea Intervention, which developed the robot.

#Eelume can work autonomously on tasks assigned from a control room onshore, and send back video and data. Its snake-like design allows it to work in confined spaces and wriggle its body to stay in place in strong currents. By docking under the sea, it can be deployed whatever the conditions on the surface of the ocean.

Apple files patent for ‘light-absorbing’ matt black finish for MacBooks

If you’ve always found Apple’s products too shiny, or insufficiently shadowy, you’ll be pleased by the company’s latest patent activity. A new patent application, Anodized Part Having A Matte Black Appearance, describes a new type of anodizing that can “absorb” light to make a matt black color look even darker, MacRumors reports. By etching small pores in the top layer, more light will be absorbed by the metal, giving a darker black that doesn’t reflect light.

The concept is in many ways reminiscent of the color #Vantablack, which absorbs 99.965% of all light and is one of the darkest substances known to man.

Apple doesn’t specify in the patent that this would be used on a laptop, and indeed pictures of a phone, tablet, and smartwatch appear alongside a laptop in the related images. But the MacBook range is the most obvious application for such technology.

As usual, a patent application is not proof that a matt black MacBook is on the way – we wouldn’t, for example, bet money on such a color finish being offered for the new 14in MacBook Pro – but it certainly points us towards the development areas Apple currently finds interesting.

The global rise of 3D printing during the COVID-19 pandemic

3D printing enables on-demand solutions for a wide spectrum of needs ranging from personal protection equipment to medical devices and isolation wards. This versatile technology is suited to address supply-demand imbalances caused by socio-economic trends and disruptions in supply chains.

The digital versatility and quick prototyping of 3D printing empowers a swift mobilization of the technology and hence a rapid response to emergencies. Even during severe
disruptions in supply chains, critical parts can be manufactured on-demand by any decentralized 3D-printing facility in the world by leveraging designs shared online. Moreover, the addictive nature of 3D printing enables product customization and complex designs. The broad spectrum of 3D-printing applications in the fight against COVID-19.

3D printing is also being used to provide training and visualization aids for healthcare workers to cope with the limited pool of trained personnel. Digitization will continue to transform 3D-printing machines into key parts of the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 environments in the post-pandemic, cyber-physical age

Facts About Patents:Everything you need to know

What Are some Interesting Facts About Patents?

Interesting facts about patents abound but while many people are familiar with the term, they do not know what a patent is and why someone needs it. Interesting facts cover a variety of issues such as why you should hire a patent attorney and when a patent expires. 

FAQS

Q. How long have patents been in existence?

A. Patents date back to the ancient Greeks. In 1474, the first patent law was put into effect in the Venetian Republic. 

Q. When was the first U.S. patent issued?

A. The first U.S. patent was assigned to Joseph Winslow in 1633.

Q. I have an invention, but some might feel it’s not useful or silly. Can I still get a patent?

A. Since patents have been issued, there have been inventions that are considered silly such as a bicycle with its own sail, a face-mask that prohibits the wearer from eating, even a shirt for gerbils. None of these inventions were disqualified for a patent. 

Q. I have an interesting invention for that could be used by major retailers. Should I approach the company directly?

A. Probably not. An example of what can happen dates to 1963 when a big box department store was approached by an individual offering the patent for their invention. The company rejected the invention noting it had no value but paid the individual $10,000 for the research. The company then proceeded to manufacture the invention that ultimately earned the business over $40 million in sales. 

Q. Is the polio vaccine patented?

A. No. Jonas Salk did not patent the vaccine. It’s estimated the worth of the vaccine would have netted Salk around $7 billion. 

Q. What about insulin? Was that patented?

A. No. The researchers involved in discovering insulin made the decision not to apply for a patent. They did this so the treatment of diabetes would remain inexpensive. 

Q. Did Benjamin Franklin patent his many inventions?

A. No. He felt it was important to give back to those whose inventions he had had access to and that anything he invented should be shared with the world.

Q. I realize there are a lot of questionable patents that make no sense. Is there one that stands out?

A. Yes. One that didn’t stand a chance was when the Halliburton Company attempted to get a patent for patenting.

The World’s First Rollable smartphone is coming in 2021

By CNET

LG’s tease of its Rollable smartphone at its CES 2021 press conference isn’t just for show. The Korean company will release the phone later this year, according to people familiar with LG’s plans. 

The brief glimpse of the phone was the second tease of the Rollable, which has a display that extends upward to create a larger, more tablet-like screen. Presumably, the bottom of the phone, when it’s in landscape mode, has a mechanism that furls and unfurls the display, similar to how its rollable OLED televisions work — but on a smaller scale. 

The LG Rollable only showed up in two videos bookending the press conference and the executives on stage didn’t mention the device. That led to speculation that it was only a concept device, not ready for prime time. TCL later Monday showed off two concepts for rollable phones, including a larger 17-inch tablet that unfurled from both ends, like a treasure map, but those appear to be far away from an actual product.

LG Rollable is the rollable smartphone from LG and could be the first commercially available rollable smartphone. Oppo has also showcased the rollable smartphone but it’s a concept and LG Rollable looks like will be a mass-produced device that people can actually buy. LG could unveil the LG Rollable in March 2021
