Scientists at Brunel University London have engineered an innovative new method to build the next generation of freezers capable of reaching temperatures as low as - 180°C by using advanced cryogenically cooled heat pipe technology.
Explained Dr Hussam Jouhara, of Brunel’s Institute of Energy Futures: “At the heart of the new system is the concept that what we needed was to be able to efficiently transfer cold.
“The cold in our design comes from liquid nitrogen. But unlike conventional cold storage using the liquefied gas we don’t need to physically transfer the nitrogen. The cryogenic heat pipe is literally just moving the cold."
If the obesity epidemic can be reversed it will depend on the lessons our children learn from this generation, according to a panel of academic experts at Brunel University London’s third Big Question event.
Ageing simulation suits letting wearers walk in the shoes of someone 50 years older, are showing future care workers and designers how it feels to be old.
Wearable technology mimicking stroke and ageing is giving London students a powerful immersive experience of old age – cataracts, shakes and stumbles included.
Brunel University London uses a set of four gerontologic test suits, called GERT suits, a stroke suit and tremor simulators to recreate a spectrum of age-related conditions including Parkinson’s.
