Number 8 Spring
Even today, in certain parts of the world, people use springs for their homes or property. The design for this invention most likely originated at some point during the 18th century. One notable example is the 1825 case of Bird v. Holbrook.
Number 7 Mousetrap
The 1882 patent belongs to James A. Williams of Fredonia, Texas. His idea was to build a new type of trap. When the target would come into contact with the bait, it would be set off. 12 years later William C. patented the classic mouse trap, as we know it today.
Number 6 Tesla’s Machine
Nikola Tesla is widely considered to be one of the most brilliant minds in history. Yet, when it comes to his electro-mechanical oscillator, some argue it produced more fiction than fact. Without going too much into detail, this steam-powered generator featured a piston that would vibrate up and down at high speeds, producing electricity. Tesla worked with many versions of the device to control the intensity of the piston’s oscillation. During a press meeting at his 79th birthday party, Tesla claimed that one version of his invention had caused powerful vibrations in structures in downtown New York. The inventor stated that he once worked with an oscillator that could fit in an overcoat pocket. It started to generate a resonance in several buildings, including his own. At the same party Tesla claimed that, with five pounds of air pressure in a mechanical oscillator attached to a support beam, he could destroy the Empire State Building. The MythBusters experimented with a version of Tesla’s oscillator. Their device wasn’t steam powered and they used it on a modern-built bridge.
Number 5 Sophia
Since she was first activated in 2016, Sophia, the robot, has been causing quite a stir in the scientific community and sparking debates on whether human beings are close to creating artificial general intelligence or AGI. Compared to previous robots, Sophia is known for her human-like appearance and behavior. She has several features which, by all accounts, are remarkable. Modelled after actress Audrey Hepburn, she is able to display over 50 facial expressions, imitate human gestures, follow faces, sustain eye contact and recognize individuals. As of January 2018, she has been fitted with robot legs and thus given the ability to walk. Sophia uses voice recognition and can hold conversations to some degree, with the information shared via cloud network and analyzed through blockchain technology. According to her creator, David Hanson, Sophia’s AI is designed to improve her responses over time. Sophia has been covered extensively in the media and has taken part in many high-profile interviews.
Number 4 Pet Cloning
It’s not the most talked about topic, but pet cloning has been going on for a while now. A cat named Little Nicky was the first commercially cloned pet. It was created in 2004 by Genetic Savings & Clone for a Texas woman, who paid $50,000 for it. Partnering companies Sooam Biotech and BioArts International initiated a limited commercial dog cloning service in 2007. The program was called Best Friends Again and it delivered the first successful cloning of a family dog, a border-collie and husky mix called Missy.
Number 3 Tread-Walk
At first glance the Tread-Walk may seem odd and unnecessary, but there might be something to it. It’s essentially a treadmill with wheels and a handle similar to that of a scooter. As the person walks on the treadmill surface, the Tread-Walk moves around. It detects the user’s walking speed and increases it from 1.5 to 3 as the driving velocity.
Number 2 Aspire Assist
The Aspire Assist features a tube that goes from a port on the side of the abdomen directly into the stomach. A pump is then attached to the port and it’s able to drain about one third of the stomach’s contents at a time. It does so before the food is digested. However, this doesn’t mean people can eat whatever they want as the food particles still have to be liquid enough and small enough to go through the tube.
Number 1 Highline Hammocks
The International Highline Meeting Festival is not a gathering for the faint of heart. The festival is held at Monte Piana, where the attendees extend their lines at dizzying heights across the Italian Alps. These lines vary in length and position, depending on which point of the mountain they were anchored in. Spectacular images from the festival show people lounging in hammocks that are suspended from the slacklines, high above ground.
