NASA Z-1 Spacesuit

NASA has changed the way space suits are made. The suit is lighter and less bulky which lets the astronaut to put on and take off the suit lots faster plus the astronaut can exit and enter his spacecrasft far quicker than ever before.

The arms and legs of this flexible spacesuit have neon green stripes which have made it become known as "Buzz Lightyear" from Toy Story. Basically, The old walking on the moon hardened suits are a thing of the past. Instead of all hard parts which greatly limit movement you have around have the suit made of hard twined fabric.

Location of Bounce Imaging Invention (Cambridge, MA)

Bounce Imaging

This technology is a big deal for police and firefighters the most. This orb is the size of a softball and it has six cameras attached to it at all angles. The cameras take pictures while high tech sensors show the temperature, radiation and other possible problems.

Being able to see ahead of time will help emergency crews in fires and even during bomb threats or hostage situations. All the recorded data will transmit to a smart phone for easy reading. Safety is number one and this device focuses on saving lives.

Form 1 - 3D Printer

The 3D Printer is a very innovative idea and it is actually considered an industrial robotic machine. 3D rendered printable objects can be created and printed with the use of a digital camera or a 3D scanner along with the proper software.

This invention is complex to say the least and it is an amazing invention if you really think about it. We went from printing sheets of paper with words on it to printing 3D objects of all types. The future is bright for film, television and of course for printing in general with this wicked creation.

Mind- Controlled Magnetic Limbs

These arms and legs are able to be moved by the person using his mind to make them perform. Thinking along with some computer usage allows prosthetic body parts to function freely.

Even though this is a new technology it is still important for the future especially in paralyzed people around the world. This is the first step toward improving the quality of life for those missing limbs.
