What happens in Reflex Actions? “Reflex” is a word we use very commonly when we talk about some sudden action in response to something in the environment. We say ‘I jumped out of the way of the bus reflexly’, or ‘I pulled my hand back from the flame reflexly’.
Daily Life Example

On 10th June 2012, the aircraft AI-9760, with 48 passengers had flown from Kumbhirgram airport in Silchar. But soon after take-off, the Air Traffic Control (ATC) of the Indian Air Force there noticed that something had fallen off the aircraft — it was one of the nose wheels! Even as fear and anxiety gripped inside the plane, the pilot captain Ms. Urmila Yadav and her team did not get agitated in these trying moments and made a safe landing by manipulating the controls of the aircraft, thus safeguarding the lives of all passengers and the crew.

Water Cooler That Runs Without Electricity!

Arvind Bhai Patel from Vanch, Gujarat, studied till class 10 and then dropped out of school due to financial constraints. But that did not stop his progress. Patel has made several inventions, including for a water cooler that runs without electricity. He has sold several hundred units of this cooler so far.

16 Year-Old’s Invention

16 year-old Arsh Shah Dilbagi from Delhi invented TALK, an Augmentative and Alternative Communication device that helps people with developmental disabilities and speech impairments to communicate in a normal form of speech. It is the only such device in the world that uses breath as the way of interaction. The technology uses variations in a person’s breath and helps him or her dictate letters. The device, which is so compact that it can fit into one’s pocket, has nine different voices for different genders and age groups. The user has to place the sensor under the nose and make shorter and longer exhales to send dots and dashes, which later get converted into words and phrases.

Dilbagi has pledged to give away one free device to someone in need for every 3 devices sold.
