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.

Smart shoes that vibrate to give you directions

September 18, 2014

Of all the wearables available in the market (watches, necklaces, rings, glasses, shirts…), shoes have been the last to join the bandwagon, and when they finally have, they have done so through Indian company Ducere Technologies, who have designed these smart sneakers called LeChal.

These smart shoes vibrate in the left or right foot depending on the direction we need to take to reach our destination. As simple as that. And thanks to its mobile app, which connects to the shoes via bluetooth, we can set our route before we start running.

Good ideas developed with augmented reality

September 16, 2014

Augmented reality is increasingly present in our everyday lives, as a way of making things easier for us. If you don’t quite know what augmented reality is, Wikipedia defines it as a “live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data”.

And if the theory seems a little too futuristic, you can appreciate its importance and uses with the following examples:

For instance, cosmetics company Sephora+ModiFace has launched the first mirror that puts make-up on without actually applying any make-up on your face.

Car manufacturer Land Rover has created an innovative system called Discovery Vision Concept that makes the car’s hood “transparent” to see where you are going when you go off road.

LEGO has brought its constructions to life thanks to applications designed to take playing with LEGO pieces to a whole new level.

If you own two dogs, this idea will save your walks

September 9, 2014

We already shared an idea for a dog leash that lets you walk your dog completely hands-free, a big advantage when you walk your pet. Now we bring you a very original idea that will make your walks far more comfortable if you own two dogs.

The “Tangle Free Dual Dog” leash is extensible for both dogs and either side can be blocked independently. It can also rotate 360º. Say goodbye to the terrible mess of entangled leashes.

Great idea!
