This idea will get you out of your chair: the smart cushion that corrects your posture

January 29, 2015

We spend an estimated average of 9.6 hours a day sitting down, and our posture affects at least 13 areas of our body, leading to 8 out of 10 people suffering from back pains and aches at some moment in their lives. This kind of information might have sparked the imagination of the creators of Darma, the smart cushion that monitors your posture and sitting habits.

It registers movement and warns you when your posture is incorrect, which will later cause your back pains. It also reminds you when you need to get out of the chair for a moment, by sending a message to your phone.

Any problem has a solution; it’s just a matter of thinking creatively.

The must-have gadget for anglers

January 26, 2015

If you know nothing about fishing, or even if you are an expert angler, it’s hard to imagine all the advantages provided by new angling gadgets. Today, you can access the same technology used in large fishing boats at a fraction of the cost.

One example is this gadget called Deeper: it allows anglers to geo-locate fish in the surrounding area thanks to its small incorporated sonar and a mobile app that receives the information. .

The future of elevators without cables: Magnetic levitation

January 20, 2015

Creating buildings or skyscrapers using far with more complex structures and architectural designs than what we are currently used to has probably been hampered, on more than one occasion, by the difficulty of finding where to position the elevators, an indispensable element inside these buildings.

Elevators are, or at least have been until now, systems for vertical transport. But now, German group ThyssenKrupp has found a way to eliminate the “limitation” of vertical movement.

Magnetic levitation will soon do without cables in elevators as we know them. This is “a method by which an object can be kept floating exclusively thanks to a magnetic field. In other words, the magnetic pressure counteracts gravity.”

Thanks to this new system, elevators will be able to move vertically but also horizontally, opening the door to many possible designs for buildings.

The best way to understand this tremendous breakthrough is to watch the video.

Travel smartly with the smart suitcase

January 13, 2015

The creators of this suitcase thought quite rightly, if there are smart watches, shoes, bracelets… why not a smart suitcase? After all, it might be one of the objects some people use most frequently.

Bluesmart is the smart hand luggage created to make our travels more comfortable and safe, protecting what you carry and showing you its position along the route.

It can be blocked and unblocked remotely through a Smartphone, where you can also see its weight and location at all times thanks to its integrated GPS system. You are alerted whenever the suitcase moves, thus avoiding thefts.

It also has an extra charger in case you run out of battery in your phone or any other gadget, and can’t find a plug in the airport or station you are using for your travels.

Thanks to crowdfunding, they have managed to raise over half a million dollars in funding. Clearly, we are all looking to travel more safely.
