The standard gadgets recommended in Christmas gift guides across the globe are boring, and they quickly become unused after the first few days of use 'just to show Grandma you're enjoying her present.' It's with this determination to do better, both for you and your loved ones, that we have compiled ten presents that will not only fascinate people upon first use; but stand the test of time.
Cooling electronics has always been a bit of a catch-22 as far as we're concerned. You go too far and the solution becomes far too noisy, not enough and things start to cook. Where water cooling offers the best of both, you have to leave system mobility at the door as once it’s up and running, it’s most certainly not moving. General Electric (GE) have taken a different approach. Using a method inspired by our own lungs, it's developed a miniature set of bellows they’re calling 'Dual Piezoelectric Cooling Jets' for the next-generation of gadgets.
While work continues to be carried out on material that could ‘bruise’ to signal levels of damage (posing a future where the iPhone distorts in colour as wear and tear occurs), chemists and engineers at Stanford say they are on their way to developing a new ‘e-skin’ synthetic material that is not only sensitive to the touch, but also self-healing.
Israeli designer Nitsan Debbi has cooked up several pieces of technology made of bread, baking the components into fresh loaves. This has to be one of the most strange-yet-tasty projects we have seen.
A team of scientists at the University of South Mississippi have presented research that indicates gadgets of the future could be made of a self-healing plastic material that is designed to ‘bruise’ when dropped or scratched in order to make damaged areas noticeable to the user. The device could theoretically then be placed in direct sunlight for a few minutes in order to the material to literally heal itself, repairing the damage and eventually causing the bruising to fade, bearing striking similarities to human skin.
