2012′s Most Beautiful Inventions — So Far
Toshiba’s 55 Inch, No Glasses Necessary, 3D Television. As far as television sets go, this is one of the most stunning creations ever. It is large in size, capable of clear, gorgeous picture, and delivers three-dimensional imagery without the burden of wearing glasses. As far as combining visual satisfaction with advanced technology, this 3D television sets the bar high.
Leap Motion Control. Tired of the whole mouse and keyboard business? Coming very soon, there’ll be an alternative choice. This Leap Motion creation allows us to control our computers in three dimensions, using natural hand and finger movements. It’s remarkable to see a sleek, small-sized device that fits into the USB port providing full control of a computer in such high-tech fashion. Stuff like this makes us feel like The Jetsons isn’t too farfetched. The potential art and visual creations that are possible through this method are an exciting thought.
A Colloidal Display. What’s a colloidal display, you ask? Aside from looking like something from your favorite sci-fi flick, it’s a state-of-the-art solution that alters a soap film into the world’s thinnest screen. The transparency of the screen is controlled by using ultra sonic sound waves. The unique physics of this creation allows objects to pass through it. This is a huge step for the creation of flexible displays.
The Lytro light-field Camera is one of the most unique looking and capable photo-taking devices out there. In addition to being a great conversation starter, based purely off of its looks — the Lytro takes stunning photos that can be altered post-snap. This perk means no shutter lag, no flash and none of those confusing modes. After the photo’s been shot, you have the option of focusing and refocusing in any spot on the image. Aside from its one-of-a-kind look, it delivers a very aesthetically pleasing performance.
The Nao Robot is an adorable combination of wires, cameras, microphones and plastic. If you’re a lonely soul in need of a friend, this stunningly designed robot can recognize your face and voice, dance, play music and fulfill your entertainment needs. If smaller sized devices such as this one are capable of that many actions, it’s exciting to picture the future as technology continues to evolve.
