Here at Dharma we frequently get customers from different niches. One such niche is IT and others specializing in technology. We wish to create blogs relatable for our clients. Listed below are 40 new technologies and inventions. Enjoy reading. 🙂
Back in 1989 the world witnessed Marty McFly flying around on a futuristic hoverboard in 2015. It’s 2015 now and the company Hendo has officially made a real hoverboard. Using breakthrough air technology made this possible. Although, not as mobile as the one in the movie, this is a big step to reaching that point. Skating legend Tony Hawk even gave it a try.
Fusion is the Holy Grail for science, technology, and energy. Fusion outputs exponentially more power than any fusion reactor on Earth. The trouble is how much energy goes into creating a fusion reaction. The other issue is how big these reactors must be. Lockheed Martin claims he has the ability to not only create a fusion reactor, but make it portable. Scientists are very skeptical of this since he hasn’t shown much evidence to his claim. If he really has made a breakthrough though, fossil fuel technology is soon to be obsolete.
Wireless charging technology has been invented through the use of pads. The pads themselves are not wireless however. So how does someone create a completely wireless charger? With the use of coupled resonators. Soon this technology will turn wires into ancient relics of the past.
There are thousands of people who are been infected with HIV and other viral pathogens. Finally, these people have a solution through a new invention. The Hemopurifier helps filter out pathogens. These devices hook up to dialysis machines and assist in filtering and cleaning blood. This goes to prove that science will heal millions of people.
The need for green energy technology increases daily. Unfortunately most technologies that help produce energy are expensive. Altaeros Energie found the solution. A buoyant wind turbine that literally floats in mid air. These balloons are filled with helium and tethered down to a portable trailer. The tethers lift or lower the turbine, positioning it where the wind currents are.
6. Titan Arm
The military has taken a keen interest in Bionic Armor. The movie “Iron Man” has helped inspire surely. Now that interest is becoming a reality. The Titan Arm is the first step to achieving this technology. The Titan Arm allows for the wearer to lift 40 pounds. 40 pounds is certainly not superhuman. However, soon the Iron Man suit may actually be reality.
While on the battlefield every second counts. Especially for wounded troops. It’s difficult to tend awound efficiently. Even more so when the area can’t be tourniquet. RevMedx created the technology of a syringe that injects miniature foam pieces into wounds. These pieces help clotting and preventing infection. Giving the wounded victim a dramatically better chance of recovery.
In the past 10 years technology has advanced quickly. Sadly, it’s still very inefficient and bulky. Companies still don’t get complete visibility of a location even after paying hundreds of dollars for security systems. There are constantly blind spots. With the thermal radar that’s no longer a problem. The thermal radar gives 360 degree field of vision.
The Dearman Engine Company created their engine to address the inefficiency of delivery trucks’ cooling systems. These systems require immense amounts of energy to operate. Thus they consume a large quantity of gas. The Dearman Engine is a cleaner and efficient way to keep a truck cool.
10. Gravity Light
The Gravity Light company is a nonprofit organization illuminating the world using green power. Gravity is everywhere, it’s constant, it makes sense to utilize it. Martin Riddiford and Jim Reeves invented Gravity Light technology. Martin and Jim created the Gravity Light to address the ever-precedent problem of harmful kerosene lanterns in less developed countries.
People’s curiosity leads them to wondering exactly what happens in the brain concerning memory and thought . Now, neuroscientist Donald Marks begins the path to accomplish and understanding this with MRI technology. His mind-reading and memory recording techniques are powered through MRI scans. The scans record patterns events associated with them. This technology will allow people to revisit lost memories, feel other’s feelings, and maybe implement these patterns into AI programs.
Google and Novartis teamed up to create technologies that benefit the quality of life. They designed smart contact lens technology for people with diabetes. The lens measure tear fluids on the surface of a person’s eye. The information gets transferred back to a phone. Letting the wearer know their blood sugar level. In the future, smart contact lens technology will measure other metrics for healthy livining.
“Harry Potter” sparked the imagination of many in numerous ways. This curiosity leads people to wonder what if no one could see them. Wanting to own Harry’s invisibility cloak, inventors now embark towards creating a real one. Backyard scientist and military researchers alike. The resulting technology is astounding but expensive and difficult.
Multiple use for nanotechnology is emerging with the potential to be incorporated into plant life. Like something from a Sci-Fi movie, bionic plants are being developed. These plant have the potential to identify pollutants in the air and their volume, as well as, recognize explosive chemicals. The imagination is the limit in this emerging field.
Creativity, curiosity, and efficiency inspire people daily to develop everyday items into something useful. Ubiquitous Energy, a MIT startup company, researched and created a transparent solar-panel window. These windows work by absorbing infrared light and transporting it through the transparent glass to a solar strip at the edge of the window. If every building implemented this technology the world would potentially have all the green energy it needed.
