5. Rollable TVs
LG has developed a prototype for a TV that can be rolled up like a sheet of paper.
In TVs we use OLED (organic light emitting diode) technology to decrease the thickness of the screen. The OLEDs have an organic electroluminescent compound that light up when electricity is passed through them. Apart from LG, almost all other major TV or electronic display manufacturers such as Samsung, Sony and Mitsubishi are working on making the screens more flexible and portable.(source)
6. Bionic Eye Lens
A doctor in Canada is about to begin clinical testing of “Bionic Lenses” that can correct vision to 3 times 20/20 vision with an 8 minute, pain-free surgery.
The new lens which, according to Dr Garth Webb, will be available by 2017 strengthen the eye’s natural lens, which are prone to decay and damage with time and disease. During the surgery, a syringe is used to flush the saline solution with the lens into the eye and after 10 seconds the folded lens opens up and moves over the natural lens correcting the sight completely.(source)
A fashion designer invented the world’s first clothes-spray. You can spray it on the body however you want and you can also remove it, wash it and wear it again.
The spray is made of special fibers that are mixed with polymers to give the fabric elasticity and durability. It was developed by designer Manel Torres and particle engineer Paul Luckham. The technique will allow designers to create unique garments with unique designs.(source)
8. “Artificial Leaves”
Scientists have developed a solar cells that can convert CO2 in the atmosphere and convert it into fuel using sunlight.
Though there have been many successful attempts at converting carbon dioxide into something useful, this is the first time a viable method has been developed. Unlike other techniques that require precious metals like silver, this method uses tungsten based material that is 20 times cheaper and works 1,000 times faster. These solar cells can use the carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to produce synthetic gas, a mixture of hydrogen gas and carbon monoxide, which can be directly burned or converted to hydrocarbon fuels.
