A new method of monitoring for sleep disorders via a standard smartphone could help reduce trips to sleeping labs--and make it more likely the disorder will be detected sooner. The potential method will include using an iPhone to record the sound of breathing while sleeping. When equipped with a pair of microphone-equipped earbuds placed on a bedside table, the smartphone will be able to monitor the users' breathing to within a half-breath per minute of what can be recorded by...

The polycarbonate lenses of the glasses will feature an optical coating that will remove the wavelengths of light between the colors red, green and blue. This will eliminate the overlap between the red and green cone cells and allow the colors that do get through to be amplified, reducing the effects of red/green color blindness. The sturdy polycarbonate lenses will also make the glasses safe for wearing during sports or other athletic activities.

The idea is to develop a way to produce synthetic fuels cleanly and efficiently - bringing us a step closer to weaning ourselves from coal and petroleum-based fuels. The process will convert carbon monoxide and hydrogen into liquid hydrocarbons using the Fischer-Tropsch process and solid oxide electrolyser cells. The machine will be powered by alternative energy and convert water to steam, from which oxygen will then removed to create hydrogen. The hydrogen will be used to...

The vision implants will let some people do away with reading glasses by automatically adjusting to bring near objects into focus. The vision implants will be implanted in just ten minutes using topical anesthesia. The key to the technology will be the inlay, an extremely thin ring with an opening in the center that will be placed beneath the surface of the cornea. The inlay will be able to adjust automatically to focus the light entering the eye - much like a camera's aperture - and...

The e-ink card will let users carry all their card information on one device and choose between them via the card's touchscreen. The card will be equipped with the standard magnetic swipe strip, so it can be used at any location that already accepts today's cards. It can carry up to 20 cards, which can be chosen via the e-ink strip at the bottom of the card - allowing the user to scroll through the cards, lock the card with a PIN or even generate QR codes. The card will also come with...

The idea is to develop a lithium-ion battery with an early warning system that will alert the user before bursting into flames. Lithium-ion batteries are becoming increasingly common in electronic devices as well as cars and airplanes, but they have the annoying risk of exploding if their electrodes accidentally touch. This accidental contact can happen when the lithium ions gather on the anode and pile up to form chains of lithium metal known as dendrites. When these dendrites...

The Eko attachment will attach to almost any standard stethoscope to add a plethora of new features that can be accessed via smartphone. While electronic stethoscopes have been available for some time, their use has not yet caught on. The Eko attachment will electronic stethoscopes more widely available by adding electronic capabilities to the analog devices. The Eko will attach to the stem of a standard stethoscope's chestpiece, where it pairs with a companion app to deliver...

A discrete new 'skin-like' health monitor could be used to monitor a range of conditions from dry skin to cardiovascular disease. The monitor will measure less than a square inch and will be designed to be worn continuously. It will be embedded with thousands of liquid crystals that will change color in response to heat, which could allow the wear to track blood flow rate--a sign of cardiovascular health--as well as when the skin has become dry (which is indicated by a change in...

A chinstrap that harvests energy from jaw movements could one day be used to power medical implants and wearable devices. Jaw motion is considered one of the best sources of generating electricity from body movements, with an average of 7 mW of power possible from simply chewing meals. The chinstrap could be made of piezoelectric composites that will generate an electric charge when stretched. I believe that 60 seconds of chewing could result in about 10 µW, which is far from enough...
