Techology & Fluidification | Ferox Advanced Vehicles
Some sort of new hydraulic drive/transmission system, using 95% water and at a lot lower pressure than conventional hydraulics.

Coming Soon
Uses a closed loop ICE of sorts, using input hydrogen/methane and oxygen along with working fluid argon. Burn in a piston, condense out the water, membrane filter the CO2, and recycle the argon back to the cylinder.

株式会社Waris | 企業×ワーキングマザー 新しいワークスタイル | Just another WordPress site
Not quite crowdsourcing or a jobs site, but a matchmaker between companies and part-time/freelance women, particularly women coming back from childbirth. Well suited for startup support/enhancement where you need a pro some of the time. Seems more for project work, more on marketing and PR.

Focus / Start Your Head with transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS)
Shocking your brain to work better, apparently. Which sorta works (applies to focus, learning, and working memory and possibly raising pain thresholds and non-dominant hand usability), but long term usage effects are still unknown. Also, it uses saline soaked sponges for the contacts to keep your skin from burning!

Using alumina particle solid media in a gas working fluid thermal energy storage setup with cyclical counter current heat exchangers. Sounds like the Isentropic Energy guys with their gravel heat store.

Leaving Yahoo! Japan | Thejonbackup's Blog
Surprise, surprise, Yahoo! Japan is approaching mediocrity and stagnating due to being the number one web portal business for the last decade. Best Practices = doing what everyone else does = being mediocre.

Enel Inaugerates Molten Salt Thermal Energy Storage System for Archimede Solar Thermal Power Plant « Solar Thermal Magazine
Apparently this is a parabolic trough type solar thermal plant with molten salt in the collector tubes, which is a first apparently. I wonder how they keep the salt from freezing in the tubes at night? Do they drain it, or accept the losses associated with keeping it molten directly in the tube at night? They mention a combined cycle plant, so maybe they vampire heat from the plant to keep the salt hot?

july 2010 by asteroza - IEEE, conference drive smart grids
IEEE working group P2030 is working on standards for smart grids, and their interoperability. Hopefully they will embrace and enforce open standards without significant hurdles (such as patent licensing, and certain types of regulatory body certification which can not be achieved normally with opensource software/hardware though considering these are potentially considered life critical systems some of that may be inescapable). Making the barriers to entry for for smart grid products and interfaces is critical.
