The world is full of opportunities. It’s budding with ideas that have the potential to change the world we inhabit. We are literally living in a hotbed of progress that’s merging human intelligence with technology like we have never witnessed before. With inventions like edible water bubbles and helium balloons that transport us to near space, our future looks very promising.
Come, let’s fast forward to the future with these Inventions.
1. Edible water blobs
Plastic water bottles may soon become a thing of the past if they are replaced by edible water blobs called the Ooho!. Water bubbles come encased in an edible membrane made of a natural seaweed extract that decomposes if not consumed in 4 to 6 weeks. Wow!
This invention is one we can get behind if we want plastic to stop degrading our environment.
2. Autonomous cars
Whether it’s Google or Tesla, autonomous vehicles are getting closer to reality to change the way we commute. Because cars that can pilot themselves with minimum human input are the way forward in a world that’s plagued with traffic and accidents.
And it’s not only Google and Tesla that are showing off their technology. BMW announced a research-and-development project and Delphi put all its brains behind the wonder that is autonomous driving.
If things pan out as, we would soon be embracing fully-automated driving that lets us work on the run and reduces congestion.
3. Carpet alarm clocks
An alarm clock that allows you to trample on it whenever it goes off. Okay, not exactly trampling but firmly standing on the carpeted clock will do the trick.
This pressure-sensitive invention eliminates the act of hitting snooze every time your very boring and very regular alarm clock goes off, deafening you in the process.
But the beauty of this Winson Tam invention is that it forces you out of bed which is precisely what the aim is always.
4. Pod taxis
An invention closer to home, pod taxis will be India’s next big thing. This Rs. The 4,000-crore project will soon ferry people via ropeway connected driverless pods in Gurgaon.

7. Wireless electricity
What started out as an experiment – a light bulb came to life in the middle of the room without any wires attached to it – is being realized into reality.
Transferring power without wires sounds impossible but it’s WiTricity is developing what is known as wireless ‘resonance’ technology that can do just that.
8. Levitating Desk Lamp
Flyte is a wireless light bulb floating in the air above a small wooden base in which magnets are embedded. This lamp is already actively used because it takes surprisingly little energy: if it’s on for 6 hours per day, the lamp can work for as long as 22 years.
