Technology is anything that helps a human being to do a certain piece of work. There are some technologies, innovations, and inventions that though exist, but aren’t that popular among the masses. In this post, you will know such five existing mind-blowing technologies that most people don’t know about them.
Here are the five existing mind-blowing technologies that most people don’t know about them:
1: WiTricity -wireless electricity
WiTricity is an American engineering company that manufactures devices for wireless energy transfer using resonant energy transfer based on oscillating magnetic fields. Moving on to the new era of wireless electricity, WiTricity delivers wireless power at a distance to any device enabling new experiences with products that transform the way we live, work and move. They deliver seamless convenience of wireless power at the same power level as plugging in. Not trickle charging, not twice as long to charge, no tradeoffs. At WiTricity, they aim to make charging just a natural act in the course of typical usage. Freedom from wires has no boundaries.
2: Gravity Light
This is the light that doesn’t require any type of hydroelectricity energy or solar energy to glow. It simply runs from gravitational energy. GravityLight is powered by the lift of a weight. As the weight falls it turns a gear train, driving the motor that powers the LEDs. GravityLight doesn’t need batteries or sunlight and costs nothing to run. It takes seconds to lift the weight that powers GravityLight, creating 20 minutes of light on its descent. Some researchers even say that Gravitational energy can power the whole world if resources are utilized properly.
3: The Noise Blocking Device
Noise pollution is one of the biggest flaws of modern life, especially in big cities. Transport, drilling machines or the children yelling just below your window are just a few examples of the daily torment. Innovator Rudolf Stefanich and his device Sono could be a solution. You just place it on the glass window, turn on and wait a few moments so it can collect vibrations of the sounds from outside. Then the device produces anti-vibrations which cancel noises from outside. Soon we could get windows that come with built-in technology, which works on the same principle as Sono.
4: Holo portation
With the new holo portation, a person can be present at a location without actually being there. The technology requires 3D cameras and a virtual reality headset. This allows users wearing virtual or augmented reality displays to see, hear and interact with remote participants in 3D, almost as if they were present in the same physical space. Using 3D Cameras, Microsoft has developed an innovative technology that can “Virtually Holoport” an individual in real time, thus allowing face-to-face interaction for individuals thousands of miles apart. A HoloLens user on the receiving end can put on the device and not only see the user but see the space they are in, as well.
5: Bone conduction headphones
Bone conduction was discovered by Ludwig van Beethoven, the famous 18th-century composer who was almost deaf. Beethoven found a way to hear music through his jawbone by biting a rod attached to his piano.
Bone Conduction bypasses the eardrums. In bone conduction listening, the headphones perform the role of your eardrums. Bone conduction headphones decode sound waves and convert them into vibrations that can be received directly by the Cochlea – so the eardrum is never involved. Early attempts at bone conduction resulted in fairly poor sound quality. But new technology has improved the listening quality by decoding the sound waves into high fidelity, stereo quality sound.
Bone conduction headphones don’t go inside the ear canal but instead, rest on your temple or behind the ear. They work by conducting audio waves into vibrations. You can use bone conduction headphones for making or receiving phone calls or if you want to listen to music and still be aware of your surrounding. Bone conduction headphones are a breakthrough in listening technology that allows you to hear stereo music without blocking your ears.
Bone conduction headphones transmit music through your bones directly to your inner ear so you can still hear everything around you. Bone conduction is a safer way to listen. Bone conduction does not use your eardrums, so there is less stress on your ears.
