The idea is to develop a motion-tracking heating system that will synchronize a building's climate control as individuals walk by. The WiFi-based system will be mounted on the ceiling, where its panels of infrared bulbs will work with an array of mirrors and motors to project heat directly onto the individuals--instead of needing to heat the entire building.

The vest will combine the technology of driverless cars with the natural skills of bats and pit vipers to help the visually impaired navigate. The system will feature a vest equipped with sensors and emitters that will be arranged to provide 360 degrees of detection. The system will include a LiDAR laser, which is used in driverless cars; ultrasound, used by bats for echo-location; and infrared, used by pit vipers for thermal location, which combine to deliver extremely effective...

The idea is to take smartphone technology on the road with a new smart bike concept, which will even feature a rear view camera. The technology will be centered around a smartphone that will attach to the handlebars with a magnetic mount. The phone will control the bike's components, which will include a WiFi/Bluetooth module and four laser projectors that will delineate a bike lane, and also display the real-time video stream from the camera mounted on the rear of bike.

An implanted device that will electrically stimulate the spinal cord could allow people paralyzed by spinal injuries to learn to walk again. The device will be made up of thin, flexible microelectrodes that will be implanted in the spinal cord to stimulate its nerve pathways with electrical impulses. This stimulation will trigger the nerve roots to "provoke motion sequences of movements and support the motor function," potentially allowing the patient to learn to walk again. ...

The idea is to have a lighting system that will mimic the sun's movement and the temperature of sunlight to provide some sun-drenched relief to office workers and apartment dwellers. The surface of the system will be enhanced by nano-technology to replicate the same light-scattering process as the atmosphere (which creates our blue sky). When LED lights are placed behind these panels, the result will be a realistic 'skylight' that can add natural light to hard-to-reach interior...

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 sensor is designed to reduce respiratory-related flareups by making it easier for COPD and asthma sufferers to keep track of their medication use, symptoms and triggers. A small sensor device will be attached to the top of the user's current inhaler, where it will pair with a smartphone to keep a record of when and where the inhaler was used. The data will be used to help monitor symptoms and find trigger patterns, which will help to reduce the number of exacerbations.

A dual-frequency ultrasound device will be able to determine when arterial plaque is in danger of breaking off, providing an earlier diagnosis of people at a high risk of stroke or heart attack. Current methods of detecting this vulnerable plaque rely on the use of a contrast agent, which is drawn to the areas of vulnerable plaque and highlights them in ultrasound images. However, the intravascular ultrasound devices used in this method are not very good at detecting the contrast...

The world's smallest 3D printing pen will let users draw complex designs in mid-air. Designed to be comfortable to hold and easy to use, the pen will be powered by a USB port and take only a moment to heat up. The plastic filament used to create the 3D object will be inserted into the pen's upper end, where it will move through a special mechanism to reach the hot-end nozzle. The nozzle will both melt the filament and cool it down, allowing the user to draw complicated, 3D...

The Rain house will be made of a special bio-concrete that will allow it to filter rain water. The concrete will be both PH neutral and bio-compatible with water, which will enable it produce sun-distilled water naturally. Rain water is believed to be the purest source of freshwater, and bio-concrete technology could democratize fresh water supplies by providing access to affordable clean water for small and big scale users, from families to big companies, leaving the...
