Amongst the flood of cool devices these 10 inventions really captured our attention this year. Check out the crazy and useful ideas below! Kraftwerk An external battery pack isn’t exactly what we would call exciting. A pocket-sized power plant based on fuel-cell technology however is! Kraftwerk uses a mini-SOFC (solid oxide fuel cell) and standard LPG gas to produce energy – enough to charge your smartphone more than 10 times with just one fill. Nuimo Nuimo from the Berlin-based startup Senic is by far the coolest smart home, IoT and remote controllerRead More

Don’t worry we’re not going to list a bunch of wearables you can find in every magazine and blog on the planet. We rather introduce you to 7 really unique ideas that stand out and do more than tracking your activity. The Dash Ok, so our first device actually does track your activity but the way it does it and what else it can do are genius. The Dash are in-ear headphones, which consist out of two independent ear-plugs with no physical connection. The smart headphones come with a bunchRead More
Forgetting stuff is easy. Finding missing things isn’t. Searching for lost items actually takes up an average of one year during our life.

There are quite some lost-and-found tags out there on the market already, however the product from My Oops seems to have an edge over them with some cool additional features. Quick overview on the helpful features of MyRead More

Just a few months back Freescale announced a disruptive new concept in order to replace your old magnetron-based kitchen microwave with a new solution: Solid state RF cooking. The idea is not completely new as similar concepts were introduced a couple years ago; however we might see such devices in mass production soon. Reason enough to take a closer look at the technology. The smart concept is using a mesh of RF transistors to transmit energy and heat up food. This new design offers significant advantages over traditional microwaves including lowerRead More
Ok, this is probably not the first wearable for sports that you read about. However PIQ, a small technology-packed clip, offers some incredible new features which lift sport trackers to a new level. The evolution doesn’t come with a ton of new stuff never seen in a wearable before; which is good. Instead PIQ takes the best and most essential electronic components of mobile sports devices and combines them in a redefined and efficient way. The small multi-sport sensor weighs only 9.8 grams, measures 44 x 38 mm and is 5.4Read More
Wireless power transfer has the potential to free us from cables and untie our smartphones from low-sitting wall plugs. However there is one big issue with this cable-eliminating technology: It is comparably complicated and cost consuming to implement and therefore it crawls towards the mass market slowly rather than flooding the store shelves. Now furniture makers want to boost the arrival of wireless power by offering furniture with integrated wireless charging fields – some big names try to fill them but there are only a few compliant devices on the market andRead More
The recipe for a successful start-up? If there is one it might be something like this: Take a challenging idea like creating super-small wireless ear buds and then think about what other features you could add. For our example let’s say the headphones should be able to track sports including time, distance steps, speed, rotation, performance, g-force and more. Further it would be great to get information about key vital body data like heart rate, oxygen saturation, body temperature and calories burned. In order to make the project completely crazy you wantRead More
