Cloaking a UAV in Flight
If you will recall the Klingon Space Craft and Warship cloaked it's self as it attacked the USS Enterprise under Captain James T. Kirk. We know when we study nature, this is a tactic that predator and prey both use in survival. Cloaking, concealing and camouflage have always been methods of operation for offensive and defensive endeavors of achieving victory. Our lives and the lives of our ancestors depended on it. In war time we paint our planes, tanks and even battles ships colors, which mimic the natural surroundings adding an element of safety from enemy detection. Today we are uses Stealth Aircraft and designing uniforms, which blend into the scenery and even change colors as the surrounding background changes. It therefore stands to reason that we would want to protect our new robotic fighting machines is such ways. The simpler the technique the less chances it will fail to provide that extra security of cover. The more real it blends into the surrounding environment the less likely it will be detected and tracked as a target by the enemy.
Using very simple technology we can cloak a Predator UAV. First we paint the bottom of the aircraft with a coating, which makes it into a movie screen, yet still absorbs the enemy's radar. Next we allow a thin strip of carbon fiber material to drop from the center of the aircraft downward. The thin strip will be shaped like a sward to allow for laminar airflow and the least amount of parasite drag to help in performance and to minimize radar signature when flying to or from the enemy.
The strip will fall under gravity and if it fails to retract the aircraft can still land and it will drag on the runway with a very tiny skid plate. Inside the strip will be a wire running thru it and to the top of the aircraft. A video camera on top of the aircraft will constantly take a picture of the sky above. There will be small projector on the bottom of the skid plate facing up which will project the image of the sky above on the surface of the bottom of the Loitering Predator UAV. Anyone looking up at the drone will see only the sky and the projected sky and not the aircraft. You cannot shoot down what you cannot see, with small arm fire or shoulder launched SAM. Chances are they will not even know it is there anyway. You win, good guys 1, Enemy Zero (gone).
To cloak the aircraft from the top from enemy aircraft you would do the opposite, video the ground directly below and then project it on the aircraft above. This is the most simplest way to do it without expensive cost, re-design or making the entire skin of the aircraft a plasma screen TV. Think about it.

Sound From Transmission Power Lines Should Never Be Wasted
High Tension Power lines and transmission line towers make noise, we have all heard this. But Sound can be a source of energy in that it can be harvested to make steam in my humble opinion.
A Tuned Bio-Field and a New Definition of Consciousness: Part 1
I rarely hear about the role of the Heart or the power of Love as relevant determinants of human health or spirituality. This was particularly highlighted at a recent energy psychology conference in which a keynote presentation on the topic of Enlightenment seemed to focus almost entirely on achieving altered states of consciousness.
Servicing Missions to the Hubble Space Telescope
The Hubble Space Telescope received its first Service Mission in December 1993. The missions most important objective was to install two devices to fix the Hubble Telescope's vision problem .

Mini UAV and MAV Power Plants
A set up of harnessed Lithium Polymer Cells can be the answer to mini-UAVs. When we compare the voltage output and capacity of wire harness systems and compare the weight of LiPoly cells to NiCd or NiMH cells you can achieve extremely better results than the average fuel and output on a ounce per ounce basis.
UAVs and The Future Enhancements of Tele-Robotics
Today we have already available UAVs, which will soon have the capacity of operating together in swarms, controlled from another nearby aircraft. We have UAVs, which can be flown by a pilot sitting at a desk more than 1000 miles away.
Movin On: Taking Transhumanism in Stride
Back in the seventies, we watched "The Six Million Dollar Man", a popular television show about a trained agent who was critically injured and given the gift of technology--bionic legs and super vision.Lee Majors portrayed a man capable of leaping tall buildings and scanning the landscape at night.
Increasing Human Brain Power, Concept
Is it possible to increase the human brainpower? Not just become smarter, but actually more power and energy? Some say yes and NASA is working on ways to do just that, the applications are endless; from boosting the immune system to higher cognitive processing.The human brain if it were run at a higher RPM at night by use of noise could increase the bio-systems abilities while sleeping? Music, has enough energy to power up a light bulb? If when you slept a machine insured you slept at 85 pulse rate like truck drivers are said to when idling their engines all night for lets say 4 hours.
Lighter Than Air Tubular Flight
I propose a lighter than air tubular unmanned mini blimp be designed. Such a craft would have many great applications.
Three Types of Telescopes - What are the Advantages
Refractors, Newtonian reflectors and Catadioptrics are the three main types of telescopes. All these different types have the same purpose, but each telescope design does it differently.
747 Onboard Laser Might Cause Mistake and Identity
Remember when the Russians shot down a Korean Airlines 747 accidentally, which was 4 degrees off it's course and flew over Russian Airspace. Migs shot it down with two missiles, one hitting the tail and one hitting the left wing, everyone on board died.
Energy Aware and Waste Wise
Constantly bombarded with negative information about the environment, finances and natural resources? Feeling overwhelmed? Each and every one of us can do something to help our world - starting right where we are, right now. Though not everyone can afford to donate cash or time to a cause, there are endless tactics that will decrease an individual's contribution to the landfill and their resource consumption.

Avoiding cameras? Gotcha, what are you trying to hide from. Cameras in Subways and airports often do not get a face shot good enough for face recognition software.
Atlantis through Science
ICE AGES: - The impact of the ice ages and inter-glacial effects on the rise and fall of ocean levels and the earth readjustments to the departure of the ice cap cannot be over-looked in the human historical picture. Research in the area is far greater than in the recent past and we can learn what might have happened to earlier civilizations on earth.
Ground Targets Via Space Laser Weapons
It is now possible to overwhelm our enemy from space or near space (ultra high-altitude) Blimp weapons. Right now we watch as 11 Western States have massive wild fires, most caused by lightning, but they could just as easily be caused by laser weaponry.
Aerodynamics and Hydrodynamics of the Marine Life and Uses for AI, UAVs, Robotics, and the Future
Air has 750 times less density as the oceans, yet so many of the same principles apply there as well. We are quite familiar with marine life and the performance abilities of sharks, dolphins, penguins, fish, alligators, etc.
Energy and America
America is entering into a time of Energy crisis. It could easily be the greatest crisis that human-kind is to face.
Dream Therapy and Learning thru Human Hibernation
Want to learn a new language? Would you like to earn a PhD in Physics; perfect your backstroke tennis swing, golf finesse or fly-fishing techniques, while you sleep? While, your immune system catches your body back up on your lack of exercise, fitness and proper diet? How about if I told you, that you most likely will shed about 20-25 lbs of extra weight while all this is going on? Well, if we further develop our sleep research, human hibernation studies and mind or brain advances we will be able to do all this and more in the near future, perhaps less than 5-years.Let me tell you about a few of the latest new rapidly approaching and potentially converging technologies, which will make all this possible.

And as I was typing this, I stopped for a while to watch the news and saw that what I wrote just a while ago in terms of human evolution has already become the likely scenario according to the media because of a new skull found in Kenya. A 3.
