New hangers to hang your clothes in no space at all

November 27, 2014

Inside Out Hanger looks like your run-of-the-mill hanger, but it actually conceals an innovative design that lets you transform it into two hangers in one, so that you can take full advantage of the space in your closet.

A brilliant, and very practical, idea.

A life-saver for your keys: don’t let them drown!

November 25, 2014

Imagen Firebox

The idea I bring you is specifically dedicated to all those who live near the sea or in contact with water.

Raise your hand if you’ve never lost a set of keys in the water. Well, this idea is the perfect solution to that problem: a small inflatable life-saver is automatically activated to keep the keys from sinking.

A drone for maritime rescue operations

November 18, 2014

Among the many, many uses we are discovering for drones, today we bring you one of our favorites: the smart lifesaver drone, Pars.

Pars is a quadcopter maritime rescue drone that can arrive more quickly to aid people who need assistance in the water. It can also reach areas with difficult access, where traditional rescue operations might be close to impossible.

The drone is piloted remotely from shore or a boat. It can carry up to three lifesavers and detects people in water at night thanks to its thermal imaging camera. Its route is plotted with a GPS device so that it can retrace its path back to its point of origin.

Now we just need to see it in beaches around the world. Its creators, Iranian laboratories RTS Labs, are looking for funding.

Watch the video to see all its potential.

Take your glasses off in front of the monitor

November 12, 2014

The innovation proposed by i-Free would be the best investment for anyone who needs to wear glasses in front of the computer monitor. After hours in front of the computer, eyes become irritated and glasses end being a bother.

This digital lens is placed over the monitor and adjusts to your eyesight so that you won’t need to wear glasses while you look at the screen.

This idea won the iF Design Award 2013.

Two original protectors for cooks

October 28, 2014

The person who had this idea probably cut his or her fingers with a knife more than once.

The first idea is a simple but useful cutting protector that covers your fingers when you are using a knife and sets the size of the pieces of food you are cutting.

The second idea, Quirky Glide, is the perfect way to clean all remaining bits of food off your knife.

Safe fingers for all you cooks out there!

Transparent solar panels to replace glass

October 22, 2014

Researchers in Michigan State University have developed a solar collector that is completely transparent, so much so that it could become a perfect replacement for the traditional glass we use in so many appliances: windows, building roofs, gadget screens, etc.

While traditional photovoltaic modules, commonly known as solar panels, are made up of a group of photovoltaic cells that produce electricity from light in direct contact with them, this new system uses microscopic, organic molecules that absorb specific light wavelengths that are invisible to the human eye. The photovoltaic solar cells are placed on the ends of these transparent collectors, which is where light captured is transformed into electricity that we can use.

This innovative development is a great step forward that could change the way we obtain solar power, helping us to make the most of this energy source on almost any surface.

Three innovative ideas for your car

October 9, 2014

A programmable heater for the car that allows you to increase the temperature and defrost the windshield before you step in the car.

It works with a rechargeable battery and can be programmed to activate up to 20 minutes before you enter the car, thanks to a remote controller.

Pioneer Corporation has presented NavGate, an augmented reality GPS that is projected onto the windshield and measures approx. 70cm, allowing drivers to follow navigation indications more comfortably.

A portable tire pump – simple and useful, it will mean not having to stop at the service station to pump your tires. At some point in time, we’ve all wanted to have one of these in the car.

The chair you can “take with you” anywhere you go

September 25, 2014

What if you can’t sit down for long hours? This is the question that inspired the creator of Chairless Chair: the long hours he had to spend standing up, even during breaks, while working for a courier company.

Its design seeks to make life easier for people who need to spend long hours standing up, something that causes physical and even mental exhaustion. Chairless Chair’s structure is made of aluminum and carbon fiber with a total weight of 2kg, so you won’t even know you are wearing it while you move.

In order to sit down, all you need to do is press a button that will fix the structure’s position, capable of bearing a weight of 100kg in each leg.

Innovative light grid to avoid falling off your bike at night

September 23, 2014

Lumigrids is a fantastic idea to protect cyclists from falling off their bikes in low visibility conditions.

This time the idea isn’t to warn other vehicles of the proximity of a bicycle, as was the case with LightLane, which created your very own bike lane. The idea here is a projected grid in front of the bike that shows any possible uneven parts on the road surface, which might cause a fall. If the surface is uneven, the grid loses its shape and warns the rider, as can be seen in the picture.
