The Best Inventions Of 2012

November 7, 2012 in Daily Bulletin

Time released a list of the best inventions of 2012. Some of the more interesting ones included:

  • Artificial clouds. An artist has found a way to create, in certain conditions, an indoor cloud that lasts a few moments before vanishing.
  • Natural fish farming. A Hawaiian company is building massive cages with baby fish which it then releases into the wild ocean. The fish are free to swim about, and the cages are tracked through GPS. When it’s time to harvest the catch, the cage is located and recovered. Not only is this method of fishing environmentally friendly, it leads to better fish.
  • Self-inflating tires. Goodyear has developed a product which will mean that you’ll never have to test the pressure in your tires again.
  • Talking Gloves. They convert sign language into speech so that those who rely on sign language can communicate with those who don’t understand it.

Read more about why you’ll never have to worry about ketchup stains in the future, revolutions in drones, NASA’s contribution, and what exactly ‘wing suit racing’ is over here.
