I still don’t know how 12″ wafers become computer chips. Do they? If not, what are the discs used for? Industrial size computers? TSMC makes 68,000 per month and invests $9 billion US per year in their products. Nothing like this happening in Australia where we just dig holes in the ground and export the former contents. PS Not ‘my’ work, posted by someone else.

Vice President of Taiwan opened the show. Dancers and wireless translation devices for the foreigners. 1000 booths representing 25 countries. Some pictures from the first day.
EXHAUST heat from small petrol motors can be used to…..yes, generated electricity. Heat can’t exceed 200C so it’s not practical for car exhausts. OK for motor scooters – except these will all be battery-powered in the future. Small petrol motors up to one HP are the present target. The insides of how they figured this out are incredible. Metal sponge was one product being incorporated.
Fold-up bike is battery-powered. Not sure how much time a battery lasts. Seems a good idea. (At home in Australia there’s a couple of guys getting around on petrol-motor powered bikes that make a racket. Battery power would fix the noise problem. But are they both regarded as motor vehicles or not)?
RECHARGE your iPhone or similar device while riding a bike. The generator only cuts in to make power when the brake is being applied. A coil picks up the energy from being ‘near to’ but not actually touching the spokes. A small capacitor stores the power.

We’ve been to some of these fine shows in the past. (SEARCH will display pictures). Inventions show was enjoyable, Plastics and Rubber Show was not about wet suit neoprene as I’d hoped, it was more to do with huge machines made in Taiwan. Taiwan International Voltaic Exhibition was solar power panels – very interesting indeed. I’m not familiar with the others listed here. Computer and camera shows attract a huge audience when held earlier in the year. The travel expo was the busiest I’ve attended. The auto show is also huge.
Catch the MRT to Taipei City Hall station then a bus or taxi to the World Trade Centre next door to Taipei 101 building. Admission is usually quickly organized if you have a few business cards, (name cards) with you.
Events are usually promoted in the daily English language newspaper, Taipei Times, a day before the show.
