We decided to focus your attention on the ten innovations that have caused the greatest public interest.
1. A safe truck
Korean engineers have developed an interesting technology, which should reduce the number of accidents on the roads. They came up with a safe truck, whose semitrailer is equipped with a large screen. The monitor shows in real time what is happening in front of the truck. Drivers of the cars going behind the truck will now be able to look “through the truck.” This should keep them from reckless overtaking.
2. A condom test for infection
Specialists from London’s Isaac Newton Academy have developed a special condom that can run an express test for the presence of sexually transmitted diseases in the partner. Depending on the detected infection, the condom changes its color. Green means chlamydia, yellow means herpes, purple is papilloma, and blue signifies syphilis.
3. An innovative method of treating Alzheimer’s disease
In 2015, medicine made a big step forward not only in the field of detection of infections, but also in the treatment of many diseases. Australian scientists have made a breakthrough in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. Moreover, this method is not based on the use of drugs. Microscopic gas bubbles are injected into the patient’s blood, which absorb amyloid plaques in the brain under the influence of ultrasonic radiation. Thus, the patient’s memory recovers, and the brain activity improves significantly.
4. Floating vegetable farms
Scientists are concerned not only about the health of the people, but also about their nutrition. As the world’s population is growing rapidly, there is a fear that there may not be enough food for everyone. The earth simply does not have such a large area of soil suitable for farming! Therefore, scientists have developed a project of floating farms, which can compete with traditional agriculture in the future.
5. A floating complex for cleaning the ocean from debris
Among other things, nobody forgets about ecology. The waters of the world ocean are incredibly polluted with plastic. Therefore, a team of scientists led by Boyan Slat has developed a special floating complex, which should relieve the ocean waters of debris. This concept has already been approved and put into production. Next year, the unit will be put into operation near Tsushima Island.
6. A headset without headphones
Household stuff is not deprived of the developers’ attention as well. A unique headset that uses the bone conduction effect to transmit sounds has gone into production. This device does not include traditional headphones. The sound is transmitted directly to the inner ear.
7. Flexible displays
South Korean experts have surprised the audience with ultrathin displays, which can be bent easily.
8. A transforming suitcase with a stand for a laptop
Those who like to travel will admire an innovative model of a suitcase. It can be folded to the size of an ordinary document folder, so it takes very little place in the apartment. But when unfolded, the miracle-suitcase boasts not only a large capacity, but also some useful “tricks”. For example, it has a pull out stand for a laptop and its charger.
9. The project of a hypersonic aircraft
In the near future, it will be possible to travel much faster. The world famous Airbus Company has patented the concept of a hyper-reactive aircraft, which will be able to overcome the distance from London to New York in just one hour.
10. A jetpack
If the hypersonic aircraft is a project of tomorrow, a jetpack has already been tested successfully. This invention can hover above the land like a superhero.
