The 10 Best Inventions of 2014
Have you ever tried the Hoverboard?
If you ever seen the flying skateboards in Back to the Future then you will appreciate this. These boards actually hover one inch above the ground. It must hover over certain metals such as copper or Aluminum in order to work. It can hold up to a 300 pound human being and it maintains balance with your body shifts.
Who would have thought it . A flying skateboard without wheels. Back to the Future is now. Marty McFly would be proud. One day Hoverboarding will become a sport and be watched during X Games, mark my words.
This Indian Spacecraft was built to circle Mars and gather facts and other information about the Red Planet. The Manglyaan means Mars Craft. It was built to orbit and monitor Mars and it is the first ship to reach Mars on it's first attempt.
The spacecraft has five unique instruments used for Mars study. Anytime a country succeeds in the space program it's a great thing. India is proving to be a force in this field by making a shuttle and successfully flying it around Mars for cheaper than it takes to make a movie. The sky or should I say outer-space is the limit.

The Apple Smart Watch has many functions that were thought to be impossible a few year ago. Among the watches' many uses it can tell time, surf the web, read e mails and double as a cell phone. It is fully compatible with the I Phones and I personally love it. It is fast and seamless. Much easier to use and more fast and friendly than Google Glass.
The watch has many other uses such as App related uses and it can control the Apple TV. One of the coolest features is the Walkie Talkie connection which seems like James Bond or Michael Knight talking with Kit on Knight Rider.

Your playing on the I Pad 2 and the Osmo Toy helps bring people and objects to life before your eyes. You attach the Osmo onto the screen of the IPad and it turns the screen and in front of it as well to an interactive studio for learning and fun for kids and to be honest adults. Personally, It has some mind blowing effects but for me I like the I Pad for web surfing and Facetime.
Please tell me your favorite invention from 2014 whether it is on this list or not. Leave your opinions in the comments box at the bottom of this page.
Osmo (I Pad Extra)
Copenhagen Wheels on Amazon
The Copenhagen Wheel hooks on the back wheel of a bike. It is powered by a battery and an electric motor. The motor kicks in on steep heels or when it feels the bicycle rider needs the boost. This is just the beginning. I can recall many times as a child that having this device would have proven useful.

Witricity is a device that transfers wireless energy to everyday items. This technology will allow for wireless and cordless microwaves, toasters, etc. The drawback is the device has to be in close range to the cordless item. It is like a main power plug in sourse that can allow other devices to draw from its energy source to connect instead of it's own outlet. The future has arrived.
The great thing about this concept is that we are finally moving away from cords and power outlets. We have a ways to go but we are on our way world so watch out.
