Remi Radulescu from Timisoara, Romania has won a gold medal for his invention -a mechanical tool that turns off gas in case of an earthquake.
During his lifetime, the inventor has received over 40 awards for his inventions. The mechanical, tool he invented this year is cheap to produce and it is better than the old systems because it functions independently from an electrical source, which means it is functional during an earthquake, compared to the old systems which would stop functioning once earthquake started.
Radulescu’s first invention was in 2002 and it was a solar battery that heats up water. The battery was commercially popular and it still sells today. Radulescu has also invented a parabolic concentrator, a portable exhaust detector, a machine that cuts ice and a system that shakes trees.
