Freezing lithium batteries may make them safer and bendable
    The world's first all-electric VTOL jet

    This is a versatile turbine that can work in the water,  wind or hand cranked


    Waterlily is being developed by a Canadian start-up company, based in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, that designs and manufactures power harvesting systems for the ocean monitoring industry. They have miniaturized the technology so that hikers, campers, paddlers and cyclists can utilize our patent-pending, low-speed turbine while enjoying the outdoors. The four founders of the company are engineers who developed the technology as part of a 6 year multi-disciplinary engineering research project at Memorial University.

    The technology was designed to work for long periods of time in the harsh ocean environment and our prototypes have been successfully tested for over 1400 days in real world subsea environments. For more information visit the webpage at or the links at the bottom of this story
