Have You?

Have you ever tried the Hoverboard?

See results

Hendo 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.

Invention Ranking

3.7 out of 5 stars from 3 ratings of Mangalyaan

Mangalyaan

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.

Apple Watch

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.

Apple Watch (18 K Gold Trim)

The Apple Watch can tell time, surf the web, read emails, send texts and also it can be used as a phone.

Six Aouto inventions that have taken off.

BMW i3

The BMW i3 is an electric car that is equipped with an extra two cylinder emergency engine which kicks in when the electric battery begins to die. BMW is setting the stage for some major changes in the auto industry with this gas saver. It still has get up and go and of course some luxury options too. This car averages 120 MPG when in electric use. Wow. Nothing more to say.

Osmo

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)

Connect the Osmo toy to an Ipad and watch the interactive experience come to life in the form of objects and the world in front of the screen.

Copenhagen Wheel

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.

Ringly

Hi- Tech jewelry for women. Smart Jewelry if you will. These rings can alert with sounds and color changes that an email has came in and many other alerts. Vibrations and lighting control this ring. Laugh at the concept if you will but soon braclets and earings will have functions.

This invention along with the Apple Watch just goes to show how far we are gonna go with these wearable smart devices. Who knows what is coming next in this department.

Lumo Lift

The Lumo Lift is a great device that has several functions including the ability to recognize when someone is slouching or slumping then warn you to correct your posture. It is a tiny gadget that vibrates like a phone to let you know to straighten up. It also can be used to track miles walked, steps taken and calories burned during the course of a day as long as it is attached to you properly.

Coolest Cooler

Coolest Cooler can store hot food, ice, drinks, keys and your cell phone. Not to mention it can blend mixed drinks. Some even have speakers to play IPod music and they also come in all kinds of different colors. This idea has really taken off and they plan to expand to other cooler hookups so get ready for a do it all cooler.

Coolest Cooler Has it All

The Coolest Cooler has many uses including holding ice and making mixed drinks. Also, it can play music which is awesome to say the least.

Witricity

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.
