asteroza + conversion   217

Trying to put audiobook narrators out of business, by automating narration of e-books for conversion into audiobooks. Probably not better than real pro voice actors organized specifically for an audiobook, but for random small e-books, this is probably good enough (though that will put struggling unknown voice actors out of work...)

Hybrid Molecule–Nanocrystal Photon Upconversion Across the Visible and Near-Infrared - Nano Letters (ACS Publications)

Motorbike Generates Electricity Using Its Exhaust Gas -- Tech-On!
Bizarre hybrid device, that uses unburnt hydrocarbons in scooter exhaust gas to heat/run a SOFC fuelcell, which also has thermoelectric elements wrapped around the SOFC tubes to capture waste heat as well. Though my first question would be why use a crappy two/four stroke scooter engine in the first place? Why not a series hybrid powerplant, with a microturbine generator with fuelcell combustor? Though I suppose as an aftermarket mod, as long as it doesn't raise exhaust gas pressure losses too much, it might be an easy conversion...

Improving the light-harvesting of amorphous silicon solar cells with photochemical upconversion - Energy & Environmental Science (RSC Publishing)
New trick for solar cells, upconverting red/IR photons that are not captured in a PV cell and pass through by combining two photons and turning it into a single yellow photon, and sending that back into the solar cell for capture. Kind of like a frequency doubler crystal. But this seems to be a reflector architecture of sorts, so that means the red/IR that passed though probably heated the solar cell already before it even reaches the upconverter reflector, as opposed to a frequency doubler crystal which is on the front end usually.

SRI Research Identifies Environmentally Friendly Process to Make Coal-Based Liquid Fuel
They found a way to cut capital cost in half versus a FT CTL plant by using LNG/methane as a hydrogen and heat source rather than water/steam, but the $/gallon is higher than a FT CTL plant. I suppose it might make sense in water poor areas that have either coal or LNG access.
