5 Innovative Inventions Of 2K14

Solar-panel windows

A breakthrough in quantum dot research by scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory paved the way for windows that double as solar panels.Quantum dots - nano-crystals made of a semiconductor - were embedded in a transparent polymer in order to capture the sun's energy and harvest it as power.


Smart contact lenses

A smart contact lens that can monitor the glucose levels of diabetes sufferers was developed by Google in January.Coming out of the company's Google X skunk works division, best known for developing Google Glass, the contact lenses use chips and sensors the size of glitter to offer an early warning to the wearer by analysing tears.

SolePower 

Each thud of a hiker’s heel releases enough energy to illuminate a light bulb. Rather than waste that power, Matt Stanton, an engineer and avid backpacker, created a shoe insole that stores it as electricity.


XStat

To save more lives, a group of veterans, scientists, and engineers known as RevMedx has created a pocket-sized device called XStat : a faster, more effective way to plug wounds. The poly-carbonate syringe slides deep into a wound, such as a bullet track. When a user pushes down on the handle, it deposits dozens of pill-size sponges that expand to stem bleeding. Meanwhile, a substance in the sponges fights infection while clotting blood.

Smart expiry label

A London-based student developed a bio-reactive expiry label that decays at the same rate as food, potentially making a massive dent on the millions of tonnes of food wasted around the world each year.
