Should Your Old Wood Windows Be Saved?

first_imgOld wood windows are as charming as they are maddening. While they offer appealing craftsmanship and an authentic sense of home, they typically leak like a sieve. With rising fuel costs, an unstable economy, and a catatonic housing market, it’s simply becoming more and more difficult to look at those old units with pride.If you live in a historic district, you may not have the option of installing replacement windows. If you live elsewhere, however, you may be tempted to ditch the whole preservationist mentality and hop on the vinyl replacement train in hopes of reaping all the green rewards and cash savings of a modern home. Don’t—not without carefully considering your options first.By assessing your existing wood windows and making the right upgrades, you might be able to restore them to rival the performance of a standard replacement—at a fraction of the cost. Consider the potential of your existing windows You might make a window-replacement contractor’s head spin if you tell him that you’re going to repair rather than replace an old, drafty wood window. After all, thanks to progress in building technology, tight windows with astonishingly high insulating values — Serious Windows, for example — are now available. But not every advanced building solution or product makes sense for everyone. For many, repair work is a desirable alternative to replacement.In a collaborative effort, the Vermont Energy Investment Corporation, the University of Vermont’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and the U.S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory set out to test the value in wood-window repair. In their 1996 paper, “Testing the Energy Performance of Wood Windows in Cold Climates,” they assessed the performance gains accrued through various wood-window upgrades, including the… Start Free Trial Already a member?

Local Motors greenlights self-driving 3D-printed car

first_img5 Industries Destined for Technological Disruption Related Posts David Curry Your car of the future might be built in a 3D printing microfactory while you choose customization options in virtual reality, or at least, that’s what the folks at Local Motors hope to deliver one day.In the present day, the team just finished the Essence of Autonomy challenge, which called on designers around the world to built a prototype of the self-driving car of the future, based on the company’s Strati car.See Also: Is this pen your next 3D printer?FLY-MODE, created by Rhode Island designer Finn Yonkers, won the competition with 17 votes. Yonkers previously won the ‘cargo prize’ for the Airbus Cargo Drone challenge, also hosted by Local Motors.Yonkers’ prototype features a retractable steering wheel, a tablet-sized screen in the center for navigation, and a drone that projects the view onto a front window projector. A joystick is placed where the clutch would be, which functions as steering for the drone.Connectivity to the internet would provide FLY-MODE drivers with the ability to watch Netflix, play video games, and even connect a virtual reality headset. As I’ve said in a previous article, ride-hailing services could use this free time as a way to advertise their service, offering free NFL games or Spotify premium to riders.Yonkers will be invited to Local Motors microfactory in Phoenix, Arizona to participate in the final build. Mouser Electronics, the company that organized the challenge with Local Motors, will send Grant Imahara of Mythbusters fame to unveil the prototype vehicle.Local Motors have built one road ready car so far, called the Swim, and the company is hoping to get the Strati approved soon. We doubt the FLY-MODE will be approved or manufactured outside of the initial prototype, but that might be enough to spur more engineers and automakers to look into 3D printing as near reality, rather than fiction.
