The pure towel concept will dry towels where they hang, helping to save energy while combating damp, germy towels. The concept will feature a ring-shaped scanner fitted with a '360 degree UV ray' and a circular fan. The device's smart hanger will be able to recognize the recently-hung towel and send a signal to the UV-equipped ring, which would then begin to scan the towel up and down--drying it completely within ten seconds. The device will not only help save the energy...

The skier airbag will be able to detect a crash and inflate to protect the skier from injury. It will be necessary to create an algorithm that will allow the system to differentiate between the normal forces of ski racing, such as a jump or hard turn, and an actual fall. The airbag will only inflate when the data received from at least seven sensors exceeds a designated threshold. Once the signals of a fall have been detected, the 8-liter airbag will inflate using a cold gas...

The device will alert ice-anglers via smartphone when a fish has taken the bait. The device will be a wireless transmitter that will attach to the ice fishing tip-up, a spring-loaded metal arm that pop up a flag when a fish is on the line. Although the flag will signal a bite, ice fishers must constantly check the holes to see if a flag is up, and too much delay could allow the fish to escape. The device will eliminate the need for visual checks by sending a smartphone alert when a...

The foldable helmet will be able to expand in order to accommodate different head sizes. The helmet will feature a lateral middle section bracketed by two side sections. The side sections can be pulled out and locked in place to create the best fit while still meeting the ski helmet safety standards. As an added bonus, the expandable design will provide good ventilation and allow the helmet to pack down more compactly for transport.

The heating knee pad will store the energy generated during exercise and release it as heat to help soothe muscles once the workout is complete. Made of 'electro-thermal isolation yarn', the concept device will absorb the heat generated by the body during exercise. A coil and magnet electricity generator will store the heat, and then release it into the pad after the workout-creating a soothing warmth. The knee pad's energy storing feature can be switched off or on, and the built-in...

A new wetsuit for surfers and swimmers will help prevent shark attacks by making the wearer invisible and seemingly less tasty to sharks. The will be two wetsuit styles that will help deter attacks in two different ways. One, designed for swimmers and divers, will use a Cryptic Pattern that will cause the wearer to blend into the background, making them difficult for sharks to see. The other, for surfers, will feature a Warning Pattern that will mimic the patterns of untasty fish,...

Designed for swimmers, the device will attach to a set of goggles to let athletes check their heartbeat without breaking stride. The device will attach to one side of the goggles, where an optical sensor will measure the heart rate from the temporal artery. As an onboard microprocessor will track the heart rate in real time, color-coded LEDs will illuminate to let the user know if they are currently on their chosen heart rate (Fat Burning, Fitness or Maximum Performance). The device...

The practice basketball will be equipped with an array of sensors to provide specific feedback to players to help them perfect their game. Sensors inside the ball will measure aspects of play such as the speed of a dribble or the quality and release of a backspin. The information will be communicated via Bluetooth to a smartphone app that will focus on four different areas: Workout, QuickTraining, Compete and Challenge, which will let players interact with each other around the world....
