In this episode, we talk about Charm Industrial’s novel approach for carbon offsetting, a concept fitness drone from Hongik University that could be the first to commercialize, and a joint effort between MIT and the US Navy to understand how sound waves are altered by water conditions in the North Pole. As always, you can find these and other interesting & impactful engineering articles on Wevolver.com. 

EPISODE NOTES

(0:50) - A Charming Response To The Carbon Offsetting Controversy

Approximately 85% of all carbon offsetting efforts do not actually remove any additional carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and Charm wants to change that by injecting bio oil into wells that stored crude oil at one point.

(8:10) - Drones As Personal Fitness Instructors:

Drones are finally making their debut in the fitness scene with a concept design from Hongik University that could serve as the first commercially viable fitness drone and pave the way for the future of the industry. 

(14:20) - MIT & ONR’s Trip To The North Pole:

Acoustic signals get distorted in regions of the ocean where warm water meets cold water - especially in the Beaufort Sea - so MIT has collaborated with ONR to understand these distortions in hopes of allowing exploration in these regions without risking loss of communication.
