A tile and an app that helps you find your keys or items with the tile
The future is now. As we race light years forward in technology, one may think the best innovation or the shinning light of creativity are reserved for high priced items like cars, computers, tablets or toys. However, it seems cutting edge design and high-end gadgetry is within our reach.
It also seems the coolest inventions are those that perfectly marry technology with practicality. In the series of photos below, some inventions are deceptively simple we may think, “why didn’t I think of that?”
Other creations push the limits of convention and tradition and go so far as to improve the lives of people in impoverished nations. Take for instance the Eliodomestico a solar distiller, designed to produced fresh drinkable water without the use of filters and electricity. Creations like these are necessary as they will save lives and ensure the most disadvantaged people are not left behind as we race into the future.
