A simple, affordable sticker that tests if water is safe to drink

The 2018 Young Australian of the Year in NSW won the prestigious Stockholm Junior Water Prize last week. Ms Butson’s SODIS ultraviolet radiation sticker accurately measures the solar UV exposure required to sanitise drinking water. Costing less than one US cent to produce, it has the potential to revolutionise the way some of the world’s poorest people can be certain that the water they are drinking is safe. https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/this-will-stick-in-our-minds-for-a-long-time-macinley-s-invention-could-change-lives-for-one-cent-20190831-p52mm4.html

A weighted blanket that grows from 7-28 pounds!

SERA is the world’s first adjustable weighted blanket, fully washable and can be configured to weigh from 7 to 28 pounds. My vision was to create an adjustable totally customizable weighted blanket for people who suffer from sleep and anxiety disorders. Our blankets have also been used by children with ADD, PTSD, Aspergers and Autism as well as seniors with Parkinsons, Dementia, and Alzheimer’s. Measuring 40” x 70”, the blanket’s weight is sewn into strips which then get pulled into the channels of the cover with a custom Sera tool. The weighted strips come in different weight increments. Currently, we’re crowdfunding through Kickstarter, our campaign ends September 19, 2019 with a goal of $10,000 USD. Perks include a Sera 7-14 pound blanket for $249 saving $50 off the MSRP and delivery to the US only. Our ongoing campaign is at: https://bit.ly/SeraOnKickstarter

Increasing tree cover may be like a ‘superfood’ for community mental health

A recent Australian study suggests, that ‘green space’ especially trees, enhances mental health. Adults with 30% or more of their neighbourhood covered in some form of tree canopy had 31% lower odds of developing psychological distress. The same amount of tree cover was linked to 33% lower odds of developing fair to poor general health.https://theconversation.com/increasing-tree-cover-may-be-like-a-superfood-for-community-mental-health-119930

Attaching Fitbits to Port Jackson Sharks to observe their behaviour

A group of scientists has just discovered how modern technology can be used to study sharks out in the open. The researchers wanted to gain an understanding of shark behaviour and their whereabouts in order to reduce the amount and risk of human-shark interactions. Now, Macquarie scientist Julianna Kadar has just found the best method of using tagging technology to do just that. The researchers gathered Port Jackson sharks from the wild and attached a Fitbit like device – acoustic accelerometers – on the sharks to monitor their movements. The data collected by this new technology has since confirmed new information about the breed. https://lighthouse.mq.edu.au/article/august-2019/fitbits-throw-light-on-secret-lives-of-sharks

A more comfortable middle seat on a plane

The S1 design moves the middle seat a few inches lower than, and back from, the aisle and window seat. It also widens the seat by about three inches. This allows your arms, shoulders, thighs, and elbows to spread just a bit more than they otherwise could, without giving the seat more legroom or reducing a plane’s seating capacity. It also features a two-level armrest design to eliminate elbow fights. The aisle and window passengers end up using the front ledge of the rest, and the middle passenger uses the rear portion. https://www.fastcompany.com/90377949/airlines-are-finally-fixing-the-middle-seat?

Poop bags for horses

In Vienna horses drawing carriages around the old inner city have individually designed poop bags attached. They are required by law in cities such as Vienna, NewYork and Dresden. Apparently one of the reasons cars became popular in the early 1900’s was the problem with horse poop, particularly in rapidly growing cities like New York. If this idea had been thought of then cars may not have become so popular so quickly.
