This akogare will reduce the noise from the open window by 10 decibels

In the journal Scientific Reports, a description of the new device, which reduces the volume of the sounds passing through the open window. It can be installed in two-pane sliding Windows, and it will reduce the volume of the external noise by 10 decibels.

The device consists of 24 small speakers (each 4.5 cm in diameter) assembled in a lattice pattern, and one external sensor. When the sensor detects noise outside the window, the speakers emit a “corrosion control and antinoise” on the same frequency but with inverted sound waves. Thus, external corrosion control and antinoise dampens sound and reduces acoustic pollution that enters the room.

In numerous tests, the developers recorded the fact of reducing the volume passing through the open window the sounds by 10 DB. In the experiments we used acoustic waves with a frequency above 300 Hz, which corresponds to the noise of road traffic and passing trains. The authors hope that their device will hit the market and will be able to actively reduce the level of sound pollution in big cities.

Physicists have learned to turn plastic bottles in supercapacitors

Scientists from the University of California, riverside have developed a technology to produce components for supercapacitors from regular waste. We are talking about polyethylene terephthalate or PET, which is made most of plastic bottles. This material is from an economic point of view is significantly superior to high-tech raw materials, like graphene or carbon nanotubes. […]

Looks like a screwdriver of the XXI century

Recently Techcult wrote about the drill of the XXI century with a touchscreen and lasers. But the screwdriver is traditionally considered to be more simple, reliable and very straightforward tool. What similar high-tech screwdriver advanced Italian production? And it is similar to the Kinetic device Driver. Kinetic Driver designed by the Italian designer Giacomo Di […]

Our Solar system is most similar to space croissant

The sun emits powerful electromagnetic winds that envelop the planet in our solar system like a giant bubble. This magnetic bubble is called the heliosphere and protects the planet from dangerous space radiation. Scientists have long believed that the heliosphere is in the form of a comet – with a distinct nose and long flowing […]

Some homemade masks turned out to be more dangerous than no

Despite the fact that the industry has recovered from the shock of the first days of the pandemic COVID-19 and now produces enough facial masks of different types, most people in the world due to various reasons use homemade versions. Everyone understands that they are less effective than professional medical model, but the question is: […]
