Technology never ceases to amaze us and it grows and develops at a pace we hardly can keep up with. In terms of gadgets and devices things are even more complex, as whatever we saw in old Sci-Fi movies, now we are using on a daily basis (except maybe teleportation) and people recall the old nineties cell phones and floppy disks only with nostalgia and a little bit of irony, while sliding their fingers over their smartphones, vape an electronic cigarette and plug their paper – clip sized USB flash drives into notebooks not much larger than an old palm pod.
Oh, the good old days! But nobody regrets them, as we are in the search of the next best thing. And luckily, technology is not only about computing, communication or driving, is about making our lives better, easier and happier. So a large part of today’s tech is focused on gadgets and devices that will not only improve our houses, but also our quality of life. Futuristic? Science – Fiction? Perhaps, but how about these beauties? Wouldn’t they make great companions for a home?
The Transparent TV
Probably the first choice of many tech aficionados out there, the transparent TV makes any living room look like the next century’s home to live in. It uses LCD technology combined with TOLED advancements and it is said to have no flaws in image display, color, contrast and resolution.
The Orbital Washing Machine
If the man of the house might fall in love with the transparent TV (and stay tuned, gentlemen, as we have another sci-fi toy for you in store), this one is for the ladies. The Orbital washing machine has an incorporated spherical basket that will help you keep the clothes together and not intertwined, messed up and on the brink of extinction (as humanity observed the socks’ tendency to mysteriously disappearing), and, much better, this particular washing machine’s spherical drum moves on two axes instead of one (as regular machines do), providing a better cleaning.
The Bio Robot Refrigerator
Not something to convince your parents to buy, but maybe future generations will keep one in their kitchens. This is a high – tech fridge that doesn’t cool, but envelops food in a biopolymer gel, creating an individual capsule for each product, no matter you stick an apple or a piece of cheese in it. It doesn’t smell and the gel doesn’t stick, the machine doesn’t need much energy to cool or freeze things, it’s small, can be used both vertically and horizontally and you can stick your food so it fits best the available space and needs.
The magical projector
Gentlemen, if you gave up the idea of having a transparent TV, then the Geist projector might be right for you. It looks like levitating, based on electromagnetic laws and will make your living room or multi – media room look like a deck from Star Trek.
The self – stirring mug
You think Alienware was mind-blowing in its time? How about a mug that stirs the coffee by itself? It is provided with a battery and a button on the handle and pressing that button will lead to a series of unexpected events: the warm liquid starts to move in a whirlpool, thus mixing your sugar with your tea just as you like it. Why not just using the regular spoon? What if you don’t find it? Or you need to walk around the house with the mug while you need the other hand free to talk over the phone? Or picking up the orbital basket out of the washing machine?
