All posts for the month February, 2015

For all you Android users, we have great news. The makers of the Neutrino Power Distribution block have come out with a free update to the Cockpit Controller app that will allow you to configure any combination of Neutrino Black Box circuits to automatically turn on (or off) based on ambient temperature. This update is available now on the Google Play site.

What this means is that you can now set your heated grips, gloves, liner, seat…whatever, automatically turn on when the temp drops to a level that you decide. Not only that, but can also specify the percent on (how hot) you want each item to be when turned on. Since this is individually set for each circuit, each item can deploy at different temps and with different heat settings.
You can also use this functionality to do things like turn an item off based on ambient temp. This might be useful if you go off roading with your truck/car and use a little refrigerator. Now, when the ambient temp drops below, say 70 degrees, the fridge can automatically shut down.
This is just the start of what will be a number of cool features that will be added to the Neutrino Black Box over time, and you can see it in action at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MTmbcBtuqY.
For all you iOS users out there, this update will also be available for Apple devices in a month or so.

CHICAGO (January 16, 2015) – Will or won’t “the sharks” bite? Andrea Sreshta and Anna Stork, co-founders of Chicago-based LuminAID will present their solar powered inflatable light invention to the distinguished panel of potential investors known as “the sharks” on ABC’s popular show, Shark Tank, on Friday, February 20. The show airs at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT on ABC and Chicago investors/supporters Clean Energy Trust, the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and Com Ed are hosting a Shark Tank viewing party to find out if the Chicago entrepreneurs make a deal… or not.

Originally designed to provide relief and safety at night in areas of the world hit by natural disasters, LuminAID has gone on to become a reliable resource of light for any nighttime occasion. When charged outside in direct sun for seven hours, the light can provide up to 16 hours of LED light and features two settings – low and high. LuminAID lanterns are 100 percent waterproof making them a safety tool, as much as an accessory for outdoor adventure or entertaining.
