3. 3D Pen
Need to sharpen your artistic skills? 3D Pen is an innovative gift for you by the techies. Similar to 3D printing, this gadget can be used to draw various 3D designs either on a piece of paper or on a surface. Unlike ordinary pens which contain ink, a 3D pen consists of a plastic filament. When this plastic element melts, it helps you draw different 3D shapes and styles.
4. Social Humanoid Robot
With the implementation of Artificial Intelligence, scientists are ready to develop robots having facial expressions and behavior as humans. We all are familiar with ‘Sophia’, the first humanoid robot who can think and perform actions like humans. Moreover, it is the first robot that has got the citizenship of a country (Saudi Arabia). It is estimated that by 2025, robots will replace humans in every sector of the commercial industry. Scientists are working day and night to make robots as smart as humans.
5. Robotic Suitcase
A suitcase that will always be by your side! Have you lost your luggage in a crowded airport or carrying your luggage seems a burden to you? If yes, then this robotic suitcase, developed by ForwardX, a Chinese robot manufacturing company, will never abandon you. This traveling gadget uses Artificial Intelligence to track your location and will follow you wherever you go. It uses the ‘Obstacle Avoidance Algorithm’ to analyze the environment and figure out its path by avoiding physical obstructions. This gadget also comes with a wrist band that will alert you if the distance between you and the suitcase exceeds 6 feet.
6. Bio Refrigerator
Refrigerators are the most common household devices. New preservation methods have always motivated scientists to come out with innovative ideas. One such futuristic idea is ‘Bio Refrigerator’ that uses biopolymer gel to keep your food cold. All you need to do is place your food into the gel which is odorless and non-sticky. The gel contains “bio-robots” that help in keeping your food preserved by using luminescence i.e., light generated in cold temperatures. Using energy significantly, this amazing device will attract many customers after its launch.
7. Fingers That Measure
This new gadget is ready to blow your mind and change your fingers into rulers. ‘Smart Fingers’ is all set to reduce the gap between accuracy and approximations. Let’s just agree to the fact that we all have used our hand or arm’s length to describe the measurement of a thing. But, this gadget is ready to change our measuring experience. This device consists of a pair of silicone caps that fit into the fingers. The measurement is displayed on an LED (you can choose the displaying unit) by calculating the time taken by the signal to travel from one fingertip to another.
8. Pain Relieving Devices
Gone are the days when we used to rush to the doctor in case of any minor pain. Today, people are opting for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), a pain-relieving method that is drug-free; all thanks to science & technology. Devices implementing TENS methods send electrical pulses that stimulate the nerves and blocks the pain signal from reaching the brain. Whether you are suffering from back pain or arthritis, this gadget can become your personal doctor.
9. Modular TV Sets
Thinking to buy a new TV set? Consider taking “The Wall.” Samsung has come up with an innovative idea that lets you re-size the screen of your television set according to your taste.
