The world is full of opportunities. It’s budding with ideas that have the potential to change the world we inhabit. We are literally living in a hotbed of progress that’s merging human intelligence with technology like we have never witnessed before. With inventions like edible water bubbles and helium balloons that transport us to near space, our future looks very promising.
Come, let’s fast forward to the future with these 13 inventions.
1. Edible water blobs
Plastic water bottles may soon become a thing of the past if they are replaced by edible water blobs called the Ooho!. Water bubbles come encased in an edible membrane made of a natural seaweed extract that decomposes if not consumed in 4 to 6 weeks. Wow!
The brainchild of Skipping Rocks Lab – a team of students from RCA and Imperial College London – this invention is one we can get behind if we want plastic to stop degrading our environment.
2. Helium balloons that travel to space
Forget space capsules, don’t you think it would be more thrilling to just hop on a giant-ass balloon that takes you to space? Well, not actual space but even touching the periphery would do the job, won’t it?
