    According to the article referenced to on the slide, the self-healing properties of this 'new' self-healing cement are based on various natural phenomena: further hydration of un-reacted cement, expansion of the concrete in cracks, solid water impurities and crystallization of calcium carbonate.

    Memory serves it is not that different than what we use in modern-times. The issue is that there was an ingredient of a volcanic ash local to the area that allowed this to happen. I read about this a few years back. I believe it was some kind of volcanic lime-ash, as opposed to regular crushed limestone, but don't hold me to that. Just adding that element makes the cost more expensive, so we have the far less durable type right now.

  • Hi Gordon,
    Thank you for your thoughts. We believe both directions are valuable and can exist next to each other in most companies.

  5. #3 INDUCTION HEATING
  6. #3 INDUCTION HEATING Early in the 20th century engineers started to look for other ways of melting steel. By 1927 the first MF induction melting system had been installed by EFCO in Sheffield, England. h9p://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/InducDon_heater
  7. #4 TOUCH SCREENS
  8. In 1972 a new system PLATO IV was launched into operation with a very innovative terminal. It included Bitzer's orange plasma display invention which incorporated both memory and bitmapped graphics into one display. #4 TOUCH SCREENS h9p://history-­‐computer.com/ModernComputer/Basis/ touch_screen.html
  9. #5 SELF HEALING MATERIALS
  10. #5 SELF HEALING MATERIALS 20 centuries ago the Romans used a self-healing concrete (without knowing it). When a small crack appeared, moisture induced a chemical healing reaction. h9p://codingfuture.com/self-­‐healing-­‐concrete/
  11. #6 VIRTUAL REALITY
  12. Dr. Ivan Sutherland, University of Utah, invented this device in 1971. “Architects could use the device to draw buildings in three dimensions; realtors could use it to show buyers the interiors of homes without even leaving the office.” #6 VIRTUAL REALITY h9p://blog.modernmechanix.com/v-­‐r-­‐goggles-­‐3-­‐d-­‐trip-­‐inside-­‐a-­‐ drawing-­‐via-­‐computer-­‐graphics/
