The 10 Best Inventions of 2015
What is your favorite invention of 2015?
The self-balancing scooter is similar to a Hover Board even though it is wheeled. This scooter runs on a rechargeable battery. Riders control the boards movement by using their feet which is detected by built in sensors on the board. When you lean forward, it moves forward. When you lean left or right, you go in that direction.
The scooter goes up to 12mph. This ride is like a skateboard and Segway mixed together. The ride is smooth and very easy to control. It only takes a few minutes to master this scooter but, having said that, always wear a helmet for safety. You may think that wearing a helmet is not cool but, a helmet and a slightly hurt head would be better than a severe brain injury.
Amazon Echo is a 9.5 inch tall wireless speaker system that answers to voice commands, similar to Siri but, far more advanced. This system sticks out, in that it is wireless and can stop what it is doing and go on to the next command right away.
Seven microphones are built in to the cylinder and it can provided information as it unfolds.
I think it is cool that even if music is playing loud Echo can still hear voice commands with ease. We are very fortunate to have this technology these days. There is no telling what is to come, in the near future.
Bionic Ears are actually Earbuds that filter out noises that you do not want to hear. You actually sync the buds to a smart phone app to control the noise frequency. You can increase the volume or decrease the volume depending on the situation.
With this unique device you can lower the volume on noises you do not wish to hear and increase the volume for sounds that you want to hear.
The Superior Stethoscope
The Superior Stethoscope is equipped with a smart adapter that works like a cloud and sends data to a smart phone for the doctor or nurse. This will really make healthcare run "real time", instead of having to wait for data to be transferred from place to place, they have what they need automatically. This will aid in helping the physician make his or her diagnosis and decide what type of treatment the patient will need, faster or real time. The downside to this is that if the internet decides to malfunction that day.
What a breakthrough in technology as we know it today. The only problem that I would see right off would be the protection of the patient's health information.

Cogni Toys Dino
Dino is made by Cogni Toys and it can talk and teach kids using IBM technology and a Wi-Fi connection. This mini (A.I.) artificial intelligence machine learns from kids and young adults and adapts that into their questions and answers.
A mini toy version of Artificial Intelligence at work. Just think about it....We all thought it was amazing when the Furby came out. Since then, there have been several different items patented and invented that contain some form of artificial intelligence, that you do not realize.
An airport for drones if you will, the Drone Port is a home for Drones and it has lots of uses including speeding up processes such as medical supplies or food supplies.
This are is used storing the drones while they are not in use, and working on them when they have something mechanically wrong with them.
It is amazing what the drones are capable of. Different uses and more uses are becoming available everyday. Each day, someone has a twist on how the already invented drones can be used.

Juno is like a mini DNA lab at your fingertips. This device is special because it takes around three hours to break down DNA strains. Previously this took around twenty hours to accomplish. New technologies have allowed lab workers and scientists to work faster and get the results they are looking for much faster then twenty years ago.
This machine is great for the medical field and with its speed it is a breakthrough for the healthcare sector. Which in the long run, will be better care for the patient, as in, more time spent at the bedside. If the family has questions, the nurse is right there to put information in the computer to send and/or confirm orders with the physician.
This technology is used during an autopsy, check the father of a child, match DNA between patients.
