Virtual Textures – Semseg’s E-Sense technology enables users to not just touch pictures on computer screens but actually feel them from dry and wet to rough and smooth using electrical fields and vibrations. Fire Extinguisher Wand – creates an electric field which produces a flow of charged particles that can subdue a flame. It could limit damage in a fire but also reduce damage from fire fighting water. LiFi – with wireless data hogs everywhere a novel new approach from Scotland puts electronics in lightbulbs and uses changes in light intensity to transmit data. The Possessed Hand – leave it to the Japanese, an armband with 28 electrodes sends electricity through your joints and muscles producing precise, involuntary finger movement. Essentially it controls your hand so you could can plug in and play guitar like a pro. Artificial Leaf – it splits H20 into H & O. MITs Professor Nocera made it from silicon with cheap catalytic materials on both sides; it’s a great new way to store solar energy, like nature does. Weightless – the world’s most relaxing song comes on a device the size of an iPod and is billed as the sleeping pill of the future. It’s proved to reduce anxiety by 65% and slow heart rates by 35%.
Holographic Map – no glasses required Zebra Images software shows buildings and terrain in full color and three dimensions. Lithium Water Battery – not only is lithium a great depression drug, it also makes the best cell phone and auto batteries. But it’s highly reactive with oxygen. HIGHLY, and it bursts into flame. PolyPlus has solved the riddle by enclosing the lithium in a membrane sealing it from water, preventing combustion. Combine Ultrasound and MRI – uses MRI pictures to guide multiple beams of acoustic energy into a concentrated hot spot deep inside the body to melt away tumors. Tests underway to treat Parkinson’s. Surveillance Hummingbird – Aerovironment has developed the NAV a tiny, two winged surveillance prototype that can hover and rotate clockwise and counterclockwise. Equipped with a video camera it runs on one AA battery. iPad holgraphic display technology and future 3d Hologram TV We bring the future to our visitors every day; first with a catalog that is 1000s of catalogs in one and second with the best software (Gift Professor) for narrowing this huge catalog down into a highly customized page of the most relevant gift ideas.
