Ski Company Wins Patent for Vibration Dampening Design System

A twenty-six-year-old engineering student’s company, Renoun, just won a patent for his Vibration dampening design system (no one is in anyway suggesting that engineering students, or any kind of student, drop out of any kind learning program, be it during the formal years or at any time thereafter. In fact, it’s the opposite – Stay in school!). Cyrus Schenk, founder of Renoun, claims it’s only the first of many.

High Density Polyethylene Art

In South Korea, a German and Korean–based architecture firm used 1,500 semi-transparent plastic baskets and covered a vacant building. A Korean factory manufactured the baskets with high-density polyethylene and UV coated them to ensure durability

Hyunje Joo, the artist-architect, indicated that he wanted to create a cost-effective, adaptable, recyclable architectural element. He said, “The surface minimizes the separation between the inside and outside, as light and silhouettes beyond the space show through. Over the course of the day, changes show on the surface of the wall due to the diffusion and reflection of the material. The passage of time is more actively sensed from both inside and outside, as these light effects stimulate our senses.”

High Density Polymers To Turn Parking Lot into an Ice Skating Rink

For two weeks in December, Auburn, Alabama will transform a downtown section a winter wonderland. Using high density polymers that look and feel like actual ice, the town will turn a parking lot into 1,200 x 1,800 square foot ice rink that’s suitable for skating.

The high density polymer is slippery, just like actual ice, and skaters will be able to wear skates and glide along the surface as if it’s standard ice. In fact, the city doesn’t expect anyone to know the difference.

Thermoplastic Composite Implemented For Car Engine Undertrays

Vehicle underbodies are exposed to rough conditions in sub standard road surface areas. Stones get tossed up from the surface and, sometimes, the underbody actually hits the ground. GSI Deutschland GmbH, a major German car producer, in collaboration with Lanxess, is now equipping vehicles that are destined to end up in countries with poor road infrastructure with an engine under tray composed of tough thermoplastic composite construction.
