The forehead thermometer will let parents check their child's temperature from their forehead, eliminating the hassles of oral and ear thermometers. The forehead thermometer will be equipped with infrared technology that will allow it to measure the temperature of the skin above the head's temporal artery. To use, the thermometer will be placed on the forehead and then swept back and forth toward the temple while pressing gently on the skin. The multiple readings will then be...

The water-recycling shower will purify water while you wash, cutting water use by up to 90 percent. The shower will feature a closed-loop system that will filter the soapy, used water, purify it and then send it directly back into the flow. The water will retain most of its heat during the process as well, and the filtration process will leave the water even cleaner than typical tap water.

The body dryer will be designed to make towels a thing of the past, replacing bacteria-laden terrycloth with a hot air wand. Inspired by the hair drier, the body dryer concept will include three different settings that will allow the user to choose the intensity and heat of the air by turning the device. After stepping from the shower or bath, the user will simply wave the device over their skin to evaporate the excess moisture. A built-in HEPA and humidity filter will help keep...

The idea is to develop a technology that will pair a microphone tattoo on the throat with mobile devices, eliminating background noise for clearer phone calls. The tattoo, which will actually simply adhere to the larynx of the user, will be equipped with its own power supply, antenna receiver and optional display. It will pair with mobile devices via Bluetooth, NFC and ZigBee network, transmitting the vibrations form the larynx directly to the devices.

A tooth-embedded sensor could help people with low will-power break the habits of smoking, drinking or overeating. The device will consist of a tiny circuit board that will be embedded inside a tooth, dentures or dental brace. The sensor will be able to recognize a variety of jaw motions, including those that indicate chewing, smoking or drinking. An accelerometer on the device will allow it to send the data to a smartphone. The device will be powered by an external battery...

The brush will count brushing strokes, monitoring how long and when you brush your teeth and displaying the information in an easy to read graph. The app can be also be used as a quadrant indicator, ensuring all areas of the mouth are properly covered, and as a two minute timer. Information about brushing habits can be sent to...

It has been discovered that a compound derived from Douglas fir needles can be used sterilize surgical devices and medical implants. The idea is to develop a self-sterilizing composite material derived from the needles of the Douglas fir. The extract from the needles will be combined with a silver nitrate solution, where the extract will function as a natural chemical reducing agent and convert the silver ions in the nitrate solution to nanoscopic silver metal particles. This will...

Now it is possible to keep fruits and vegetables fresh longer with the paper, which uses a blend of spices to extend the life of produce by up to four times. The paper contains a proprietary blend of spices that help to inhibit mold or bacteria growth. One sheet of the paper placed with the produce, whether in a bowl, carton or fridge crisper, will keep the foods fresh for two to four times longer than produce stored alone. The handcrafted paper has a distinctive maple-like scent,...

The Aeroball concept takes air-purifying devices to a new level, filtering the air in the home with small glowing balls that float around the room. The Aeroballs float around the room using helium, where they filter and add fragrance to the air in the room and sink to the ground when they need re-charging. The balls also absorb light during the day, allowing them to create a soft illumination at night that adds to the over-all sensory experience.
