2004

Adidas 1 are the thinking shoes with a built in microprocessor that decides how soft or firm support the wearer needs. Chosen by Popular Science magazine as the best recreation invention of 2004.

Translucent Concrete developed by Hungarian architect Aron Losonczi and called LitraCon and is based on a matrix of parallel optical glass fibers embedded into the concrete that can transmit light and color from the outside. However, this is not the only translucent concrete out there. Inventor Bill Price has been developing another variety.

Ka-on or Flower Sound are plants that play music invented by the Japanese based Let's Corporation. Flowers bouquets will act as loudspeakers when placed in a special vase that has electronics hidden in the base.

Intel Express Chipsets - Grantsdale and Alderwood are the code names of Intel's newest chips that will provide superior and inexpensive built-in sound and video capacities for the PC including the ability to do high definition video editing without additional computer cards.

SonoPrep invented by bioengineer Robert Langer, is a device that will deliver medication by sound waves rather than injection. According to the Sontra Medical Corporation, SonoPrep's manufacturer: The small, battery-powered device applies low-frequency ultrasonic energy to the skin for 15 seconds. The ultrasound temporarily rearranges lipids in the skin, opening channels that let fluids be delivered or extracted. After about 24 hours, the skin returns to normal.



2005


The online video sharing and viewing community - was invented in 2005 by Steve Chen, Chad Hurley and Jawed Karim. YouTube was named Time Magazines Invention of the year in 2006.


2008

Smog-earing cement, high altitude flying windmills, bionic contacts, pig-urine plastic.


2009

A new computer interface called the sixth sense, and a retinal implant for the blind.



2011

Fabrics made from raw milk, a new kind of photography, an electronic bloodhound, the world's smallest ink jet printer.




2012

Enable Talk Gloves
The project of Ukrainian students won the first prize at the Microsoft Imagine Cup competition in 2012. This wonderful device consists of a pair of sensored gloves , a microcontroller and a Bluetooth transmitter. The sensors can recognize sign language and translate it into text on a smart phone, which is turned into the corresponding spoken words. Most non-deaf people don`t know sign language. That`s why Enable Talk Gloves can help to solve the most common problem with which deaf people often come across.

3D Google Earth
This year Google announced the latest developments for its Google Earth and Google Street View products. With the "3D Buildings" layer in Google Earth, anyone can view photorealistic interactive maps of entire cities and get 3D models of buildings, monuments and much more. The 3D models are created by users all over the globe and anyone can easily add models to it. These new developments are available not only for computers, but also for smart phones.


2013

Lion Lights:
A 13-year-old Kenyan boy came up with an ingenious solution to keep lions from feasting on his family’s cattle. Young Richard Turere, who lives near Nairobi National Park, noticed that the lions shied away from the family farm if someone was walking around with a flashlight. So he rigged up a system of flashing LED bulbs on poles. Turere came up with his “Lion Lights” despite lacking any formal electronics or engineering training.

Bladeless Windmill:
Wind power without spinning blades? Impossible, you might say -- but you’d be wrong. The Dutch architecture firm Mecanoo installed this powerful, curious-looking contraption at the Delft University of Technology in March. Instead of translating the mechanical energy derived from the movement of large blades rotated by the wind, the bladeless turbine lets wind move electrically charged water droplets against the direction of an electric field, increasing the potential energy of the particle. A collecting system then harvests that excess energy. The lack of large moving parts means the turbine is quieter and creates much less vibration, making it much better-suited to urban environments.

Charged In 30 Seconds:
High school student Eesha Khare created a new kind of super-capacitor energy-storing device that could eventually lead to superfast battery charging for phones and other devices (including car batteries). Khare’s device (which netted her a $50,000 scholarship from the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair) has a special nanostructure that makes it last longer than the average battery and charge up quicker -- though at present, it stores less energy than a comparable battery. But the Harvard-bound teen will have plenty of time to perfect her invention in the years ahead.


2014

XStat
Originally the idea of military veterans who saw the need for such an innovation first-hand and engineers at a Portland-based startup company called RevMedx, this simple pocket-sized invention has the potential to save lives on the battlefield as well as many other situations. The XStat is a syringe filled with sponges that are covered in chitosan. Chitosan is a substance that fights infection and clots blood to stop bleeding more effectively. When someone is in need of the XStat, medics are instructed to insert the syringe deep into the wound and inject the sponges to quickly stop the bleeding. It is estimated that between 2001 and 2009, up to 80 percent of deaths on the battlefield were caused by excessive blood loss. The XStat could drastically decrease that percentage.


GravityLight
The GravityLight is a cool little invention that produces light with no outside energy source. The original idea was driven by a slightly different need: Solar Aid was looking for an alternative to kerosene. However GravityLight was created by a company called Deciwatt and designed by Jim Reeves. While the GravityLight is great for camping, it's other applications are more far-reaching. In third world countries, kerosene is often used to produce light but it isn't a clean fuel. GravityLight is an energy-efficient way to produce light, and it also can be used to charge other things, such as batteries. It works by attaching a weight to a pulley system that generates power through a set of gears. Once the light is set, it lasts for up to 25 minutes before it needs to be reset.


Dearman Engine
The Dearman Engine is a remarkable new invention. It is an engine that runs off air ... liquid air, that is. This is an eco-friendly alternative to fossil fuels, and because the liquid air is kept at a temperature of about minus 200 degrees Celsius, it provides free air conditioning. The Dearman Engine was born in a garden shed in the United Kingdom, created by Peter Dearman. His idea has since attracted a lot of attention from sponsors who are interested in seeing these kinds of engines on the road. The engine is expected to be ready for testing this summer.


Solepower
Imagine not worrying about losing the charge on your phone, and being able to go anywhere without a charger. Well with Solepower tech's new invention, the Solepower, that's possible. The Solepower is a small device that fits into your shoe and gets its energy from you as you walk. Solepower charges a small battery, and you can use that energy to charge your phone. Solepower is perfect for many purposes including hiking, traveling, and for people in less advantaged countries who may not have consistent access to electricity.




Corky
Another cool eco-friendly invention this year is Corky. Corky, created by Adele Peters, is a computer mouse that is made of 100-percent recycled materials. On top of that, it produces all of its own energy by harnessing the kinetic energy that is exerted on it during its normal functions.

Scio
Dror Sharon and Damian Goldring, co-founders of Consumer Physics, Inc., created a device that fits in the palm of your hand and let's you know the molecular composition of anything in front of you at a moment's notice. They call this device Scio. With Scio you can tell which fruit is ripest, which is sweeter, and how many calories are in your favorite beverage. It's made for scanning food, medicines, plants, and many other things, and there is more to come as the team behind Scio advances this technology.



Stay Blessed
All the people rushing by,
Looking for the meanings of this life!
