14 New Technologies Few People Know About

Posted on

A device for instant translation into the desired language, biofuel charging for gadgets and 12 more little-known technologies from around the world.

In some ways humanity has gone far ahead, while in some things it still remains at the level of the early 20th century.  Every day, scientists and researchers are creating mind-boggling new technologies that could change our world. And although we hear about some technologies, many remain unnoticed and little known. We offer you 14 such technologies that few people have heard of.

Great travel gear that you can use anytime, anywhere, like when you go camping.

The filter can remove 99.9999% of parasites and bacteria in the water. Thanks to this filter, you will not be afraid that you have run out of water on a hike. After all, you can drink water from lakes, rivers and even puddles.

The Space Shuttle was one of NASA’s greatest engineering achievements. The space agency had to solve innumerable small problems when creating the spacecraft in order to safely deliver the shuttle into space. Moreover, engineers have never encountered a number of problems before, in particular, the problem of strong heating of the case. Therefore, they needed to design the outer part of the shuttle to be resistant to heat.

NASA experimented with numerous thermal insulation materials to develop exterior tiles for the spacecraft’s hull. As a result, engineers and scientists developed the LI-900 insulation tile. The tiles are mainly composed of quartz glass (94% quartz sand + air). The outer tiles of the shuttle were made with LI-900 and were covered with white or black insulation to handle different temperatures.  This makes them excellent insulators and as such they have been used to produce Shuttle Insulation Tiles.

During the experiment, during tests of LI-900 tiles, which took place at the Kennedy Space Center, USA, they were heated to 1200 degrees in an oven. But as soon as the tiles were removed from the oven, they cooled instantly, resulting in the material being handled with bare hands in just a few seconds. All this is due to the fact that the LI-900 material dissipates heat very quickly.

By the way, similar insulating materials made of silicon oxide were also used on the hull of the Russian Buran spacecraft, which was created during the Soviet era.

Just use the little branches or leaves you find anywhere in the woods and you can create a fire that this tech gadget will use to generate the electricity you need to charge your electronic devices while camping.  Iolite Camp Stove cooks food and charges gadgets using only sticks and twigs, without the use of traditional combustible energy sources.

They were designed by Gravity Industries founder Richard Browning.  After the suit is fastened, it can fly at speeds up to 50-51 km per hour. It can also lift a person to a height of 3600 meters. The only drawback of the suit is its price tag. The Gravity Industries flying suit costs $443,000.Richard Browning says it wasn’t Iron Man that inspired him to create the suit, but the desire to prove that a man can fly.

The costumes are sold by Gravity Industries through a London department store. If people don’t want to buy, but only want to try it, they can learn to fly it for as little as $39,000.  I hope Browning comes up with a way to keep the suit in the air longer.

But the most amazing thing is that after the mushrooms recycle the plastic, they can be eaten without any danger.

Designer Katharina Unger partnered with Julia Keisinger and the University of Utrecht to create a system that will grow and breed plastic-absorbing mushrooms.  Next, the fungus slowly begins to absorb the plastic.

No, this is not a concept or lines from a fantasy novel. You can already buy this device. Imagine that you are planning a trip to another country but don’t have time to learn a difficult language.

The principle of operation of the device is simple: it hears words, recognizes the language, translates them and transmits them to the ear using computer speech.

Invisibility cloaks can now be found not only in the Harry Potter novel. The device then switches back the frequency of the light as the light beams leave the object.

Researchers from Carnegie Mellon, in collaboration with the University of Minnesota, USA, have developed an amazing technology. In principle, this technology does not use invasive procedures so that a person can control a robot arm with the power of thought.

The hand could track the cursor on the computer screen.
