  • Group logo of Methods - Methodological tools for designers
    active 2 years, 7 months ago

    One of the hallmarks of a new discipline is the development of methodological tools as a basis for further analysis. This group will be devoted to discussions on those tools.

  • Group logo of Prototyping generators
    active 2 years, 7 months ago

    What would it take to prototype a generator? Hauser and Droscher have suggested some requirements within their publications. Those requirements are discussed here. Perhaps you will be the one to first build a […]

  • Group logo of Membrane fields - Containment
    active 2 years, 7 months ago

    Membrane Fields – static attractive “containing” force acting as a bubble. Containing field allowing containment of inert atmospheres for specialty welding or virtual fishbowls are suggested. Small membrane fie […]

  • Group logo of Push fields – Transportation
    active 2 years, 7 months ago

    Push fields – this symbol suggests a stationary pushing force suggests the potential for pushing against surfaces and other objects.  If a force is sufficient it should be able to lift the weight of the g […]

  • Group logo of Pull fields – Tractor beams
    active 2 years, 7 months ago

    Pull fields – a dynamically deployed attractive force capable of being shaped to act upon objects at a distance could act as a ”tractor” beam to draw closely any objects with mass.  Traction fields put […]

  • Group logo of Thrust fields – Propellantess propulsion
    active 2 years, 7 months ago

    Thrust fields – Propulsive acceleration of a mass without fuel. Propellantless propulsion was originally envisioned for long distance space travel, but may be used also for putting objects into near Earth orbit […]

  • Group logo of Suppression fields – Transport
    active 2 years, 7 months ago

    Suppression fields  – such fields would provide a constraining” force for containing liquids and the motion of particles. Suitable for suppressing motion on a molecular and granular scale for constraining the sh […]

  • Group logo of Lensing fields – Optical effects
    active 2 years, 7 months ago

    Lensing fields – Gravity lensing is normally seen on a galactic scale. It is used by astronomers to describe gravity’s bending of light near astronomical bodies. Shaping paths of light for optoelectronics and […]

  • Group logo of Shear fields – Industrial-Manuf
    active 2 years, 7 months ago

    Shear fields – though this icon represents the potential for shaped gravity-like fields to shear thin materials such as foils and gels without being touched by actual tooling materials, there is also the […]

  • Group logo of Barrier fields – Shields
    active 2 years, 7 months ago

    Barrier fields – a stationary repulsive gravity-like field would repel particles and droplets, making it a potential mechanism for material-less windows, dust barriers and rain shields at low intensities. […]

  • Group logo of Intersecting fields – Shaping gravity
    active 2 years, 7 months ago

    Intersecting fields – what would be the result of intersecting gravity-like fields? Could portions of fields intersecting with other fields cancel or reinforce them? It is possible to create data models for […]
