Residual waste: A pathway to commercialize the Air Artifice


Have you ever considered to commercialize the air artifice? Well, it isn’t the air we breathe, but the air which we artificially generate and leave behind us as a waste.

What if you could make money when you travel, run or even when you cycle?

Over recent years, the energy economy has been exposed to huge price fluctuations as we can see the huge drop in fossil fuel price and the increase on clean energy spending.

This led to adverse effects on consumers and businesses. There is clearly, an energy risk, which is related to the lack of resources, high cost of extraction and maintenance which is currently thought by transiting into clean technologies.

ICDS ARCH LTD’s research in particle physics identified a pattern in storms that is currently under development to try to explain unusual particle behaviours for weather analysis.

We can look at our environment as a pool with ping-pong balls. Now hit one ball to see the domino reaction on other balls.

A rather complex picture to describe with one formula. When we travel with the car, often, we stick a hand outside, or, if you travel with the train, pay close attention when a trains approaches another train. This is visible, you can hear it and you can feel it and the amount of energy is enormous.


Let’s try to explain it first. Every particle has a mass(m) which travels a distance until it hits the other particle as in distance(d). The particle starts to travel at a point (u) until current time(t). When the mass travels, it produces friction in the environment which is defined by the viscosity of the environment(cf).

AEH = [ m*d / (u+t) ]*cf^2

Mankind generates huge amounts of aerodynamic friction, which is currently untapped by other technologies largely due to the lack of safe design.

Recently, the US Government produced a roadside wind turbine prototype that proved to be unsecure for people or animals walking past. Universities around the globe have researched designs on the same issue. Often, the design has proved too bulky for commercial use.

The company announced recently the development of MOION as in Motion Ions for the high speed rail network and plans to release its first prototype in 2017.


Moion intends to offer a secure and safe solution, compatible with many applications.

Moion uses the air friction (drag) to produce energy, without producing resistance.

The collected energy can be used as a power source for Lineside Operational Safety Signs, replacing the need to wire long portions of lineside from substations, thus reducing operational cost and increasing efficiency. This technology can also easily be transferred to road side applications, harvesting waste energy from cars, trucks, and busses.

If you are a manufacturer, distribuitor or and investor in clean technologies, we love to hear from you.

Is building sustainable homes which grow a reticulatum?


This could be the case if we think that nature is developing reticulated artifacts through the use of repletion these can be found in algae.

The heart of every design is the structure of it.

Through structure the shape of any object is defined and ultimately defines the outcome of the design. The design which we experience as individuals influences the way we move, plan and interact the society from urban planning to product design.

Nature teaches us that the circle is the perfect form which works well when it is considered in micro level such as molecules. The performance of inter-connection in nature, teaches us  that the perfect building form is the honeycomb.
We can make our structures flexible, which can allow them  to change from circle to honeycomb to accommodate rapid transition which can increase structural support in design.

Bio-morphed Environment
In this case study the ultimate goal is to provide a framework for structures that can be made flexible. The study interrogates the use of honeycomb structure which can make transitions from one form to the other, yet to maintain their structural support. With current technologies this can be achieved only at micron scale through cellular engineering and the aim of this case study is to maximize possibilities through defining a new strategy in building structures that can be bio-morphed to accommodate in any environment.

Biomimetics through the hydrodictyaceae algae
Honeycomb expresses beauty through its repetition of shape which engages the creation of stacks, while the water net express its beauty through connecting with other parts.
Water net has a system of 120 degrees interconnecting 3 branches and which expands through a nano tube.
In the case of Pediastrum cells, the structure ends abruptly and forms  little flagella like arms. To suggest a new structure it is essential to use the flagella like arms as joints.
These will enable designs to be disrupted into 3 pillars: length, force and dimension. If we get these pillars right, the quality of design can be improved through minimizing loss, weight and ultimately the volume of the structure.

We transit change to the creation of structures that are synthetic, yet, they follow simple rules in nature, which can connect seamlessly with other designs in its environment, using simple and effective connection points as in nature.

Strength vs Beauty
The finest and yet the strongest, crystal is the structure which makes strong materials.
With this in mind we have to create bonds that make the structure solid.
Also, it has to provide a framework that can multiply organic and can shape-shift its form while its structure design remains constraint and it connects realistically with form to define integrity.

To generate a structure which is feasible, yet it provides maximum structural support, the material should embed design catalysts that change the state of the structure. A change which reflects the shape of material through which the design of the structure is expressed.  If the structure accepts the design catalyst, then the material becomes economic without affecting its bonds, thus maintaining a strong structural support.
Now, the catalysts to change the state of materials depend upon the composition of materials alone, but when it comes to building bigger shapes that expand and contract significantly without too much change in the state of material is the ultimate state of design which we currently experience.

Morphing shapes through inter-connection
To generate design through a structure which changes its shape as it is being multiplied, yet it assembles beautifully in stacks vertically and horizontally. A design which can be altered, maintained and replaced at the fraction of the cost, of any conventional building.

Crystallum-reticulatumCrystal dependent designs
The structure created was named  ”Crystallum reticulatum” because the design of the structure has the shape of a crystal, the base of it is a honeycomb as in the graphene structure. The design can also be multiplied three dimensionally and has been designed to be scaled and to accommodate designs in bricks, wood and to be used as a structure for homes which can benefit property developers and other designers help them save cost to their clients.

Ballistic structure used to build organic home which grow



ICDS ARCH LTD is pioneering this technology which is based in London and expects to sell this product to high end users such as cocky homeowners or high-end home buyers. High advantage is a simple method for buildings which performs and feel like supercars. That’s correct.

Company CEO Andrei Toma claims to create a robotic arm around the technology which can collect from pool of components such as when a user configures the build online, the package gets delivered with all the components needed and the robotic arm assembles the build and the robot becomes part of the build under a column. This arm will be accessible at a later stage to disable the whole build, preferably if there is a need to be moved to another section or area.

The possibilities of using the technology are limitless. With this framework the system can be configured to deliver designs for projects the built environment but also for autonomous construction in no gravity environment.
Imagine an example in media or film related initiatives where this can be presented as a ‘transformers’ like structure in the future where the architect of the future assists the build of megacities on Mars where machines learn how to exploit raw material to create this self-learning spaceship to explore the Universe.

Once a planet is discovered, the system decomposes itself with the help of the arm which computes to harvest raw material to re-fuel to travel forward.

This becomes vision for a technology which is yet to be developed through an aggregator which will explore the limitless possibilities of this design.

Nonetheless an early stage technology that will be developed in stages to facilitate 3 factors such as customer education, marketing cycles and sales cycles.

For this stage the company is preparing a kickstarter campaign under the name of Homepod: World’s first structure for organic homes that grow.

To future develop the technology, the results from the first stages of development will be used to develop creative technologies that can be used in media or film related activities. For this particular space additional partnerships are required for the automation of the product itself. This in turn can have multiple advantages to create a better method for development of modular systems that can be automated to benefit large industrial developments.

Harvesting potential energy drag from one particle



Let’s begin the journey by visualizing the medium in which one particle exists. Like all objects or materials, the world of quantum is different from the visible environment. Best example where the world of quantum is more prominent is the space vacuum – we cannot see with our eyes, but we developed tools.

As you probably expect if you haven’t been to a spacewalk, space is a vacuum, frictionless – where everything exists purely on gravitational fields. However, after analyzing the world of quantum, my personal view is that space is a liquid which it’s viscosity is higher than the viscosity of our atmosphere. Like another type of water.

When a particle travels in this water at high speeds, it develops an energy around, which increases its heath. This heat, in most cases we associate it with the friction generated through motion.

Particles heath up because the friction between them creates an energy field around them which is released in heath because the particles change their state from particles to electrical charged particles and then when they go above a threshold which I could not measure it becomes a resistor which releases heath.

An example to visualize this is when a space capsule enters the earth atmosphere and increases friction with the thick air which has the mass lower than the capsule itself, making the capsule to enter the atmosphere.

For each mass of a particle accelerated to a distance it’s energy is divided by the velocity to which the particle accelerates in that dimension and the result is proportional with the viscosity of the environment squared.

Why squared? Because of the energy equivalent in 1 J = 1 kg-m^2/s^2 . For more information please read Einstein Special relativity.
