Technology keeps advancing at an astounding rate as new electronic devices and gadgets seemingly arrive in stores on a daily basis. Today, with the rapid acceleration of computer and mobile technology, the way we live our lives has dramatically changed since the end of the 20th century.
If you have purchased a valuable electronic device or gadget, then you can protect that investment by having gadget insurance. Protecting your electronic devices in this manner means faster replacement or repair with less out of pocket expense.
Here are the five greatest electronic inventions since 2010. Each of these devices were chosen based on their usefulness, practicality and ability to serve the needs of everyone.
Essentially, this is an all-in-one crime fighting glove that is armored and contains a camera and wrist-mounted stunner for additional protection. Invented by David Brown who came up with the idea while talking to actor Kevin Costner (hence the name), the BodyGuard is sleek, easy to use and contains enough room for future improvements. It is certainly an impressive non-lethal, self-defense weapon.
Bed Bug Device (2011)
This is a remarkably simple device that mimics the function of a dog’s nose to sniff out the presence of bedbugs. Normally, bedbugs are difficult to see and most people do not detect them until they have been bitten. This device can detect bedbugs very quickly and inventor Chris Goggin plans to build similar devices for other types of pests.
Designed by Gabriele Diamanti, this creative combination of electronics and solar power has created a water distiller that can be used for coastal areas that have no sources of fresh water. It’s simple design and robust features means it is far more efficient than similar devices while costing only half as much. This simple product may change the lives of millions of people for the better in the next few years.
Enable Talk Gloves (2012)
Now you can literally “talk to the hand” in a positive way. Developed by Ukrainian students as a way to allow the speech and hearing impaired to communicate with those who don’t understand sign language, The gloves have sensors which recognize sign language and translates it into text on a smart phone which in turn speaks those words to the person. This wonderful device helps bridge the gap between the speech and hearing impaired to the rest of the world.
By using sensors found in Nintendo’s Wii controller and smart phones, Black & Decker has made a cordless motorized drill that uses the motion of your hand to either tighten or loosen screws. This labor-saving device doesn’t just cut the time necessary to make the adjustments manually, it also saves energy along with wear and tear on the user as well. This is a remarkably brilliant invention for carpenters and other professionals.
These five electronic inventions may help change the lives of millions of people in both small and large ways. It will be interesting to see what the future brings in terms of new inventions that may help everyone.
