Is This the Future of Wireless Audio?
This set of conceptual earphones are the Aura PEBL, and they have been designed for a future that centers around both Augmented and Virtual Reality. Not only can they call themselves ‘truly wireless’, but they can also say that they are unique; rather than fitting snugly into the user’s ears, they instead comfortably fit around the outside. This not only allows for an attention-grabbing design element, but also makes them far less intrusive.
The most beautiful looking VR headset
The Mild VR headset is designed to look familiar. While it is a VR device, it looks like it was designed to look good while worn, and not like you strapped a toaster to your face. The Mild comes with a fabric overlay on a plastic body. Mimicking the design of eye masks, they fit comfortably over the eyes while making it look less obvious like you’re wearing a multimedia device on your head.
To QWERTY or not to QWERTY
Since we have wrists that act as pivot points for our hands, the XBows arrange their keys in a crossbow-style radial (rather than linear) pattern using the wrists as their center. This means your hands can stay put while typing with minimal movement.
Hybrid Inclusive Mobility?
The Volkswagen Roller is a new-age roller skate. It’s autonomous, and hands-free. The design comes with two main hubless wheels and two retractable rear wheels. Each roller comes with a hard-plastic shoe that you slide your feet into.
New silicon nanoparticles could finally make solar windows commercially viable
Researchers at the University of Minnesota and University of Milano-Bicocca have developed technology that could bring solar windows a step closer to reality -- a future with photovoltaic windows harvesting renewable energy from the sun.

LED Lights Make Augmented Vision a Reality. University of Washington researchers have figured out how to implant semitransparent red and blue LED lights in contact lenses, for the purpose of receiving and displaying data in sharp visual images and video. This means wearers will literally be able to watch TV or view photos that are projected directly onto their eyeballs. Once miniature green LEDs are developed (and they’re in the works, as of now), full color displays will be possible.
