In near future there will be no need to regularly visit Doctors, there are some gadgets which can help Humankind to live life to the fullest. We are in fast changing world where new technology is emerging like rainfall. Every Day we hear about new innovations and up-gradation of previously evolved technology.
Here are some of the Modern Gadgets which will eventually change the world we live in, some of them are due in very near future but most of them are already in its testing phase.
Billboard shown is located in Lima, Peru where it produces around 100 litres of Drinkable water in a day. The idea behind this innovation comes from Mayo Draftfcb and University of Engineering and Technology (UTEC). Lima which is largest city in Peru located in the valleys of the Chillon, Rimac and Lurin rivers near Pacific Ocean. Due to Lima’s location it receives 100% humid air during mornings and around 80-90% during day time.
Billboard above requires little electric to run its reverse osmosis filtration system. Water from Humid air traps in the billboard and goes through various stages to a tap at bottom of the billboard. It caters water need for huge population of Lima.
What if all billboards in humid area are replaced with this latest innovation, then half of the World’s water scarcity problem is solved since drinking water is a major concern over various places.

5. Tooth Sensor
Tooth Sensor is a small tattoo like sensor which alerts you when ever it detects bacteria which can cause cavities, plaque and other bacterial disease. This sensor will help to avoid any problem related to tooth and thus no need to visit any dentist. Tooth sensor which is developed by Engineers at Princeton University and Tufts University. Above picture shows the prototype of the sensor placed in cow’s tooth. I am not sure when this sensor will be available but it must withstand brushing strokes.
Glove Tricorder will allow patients to diagnose their own sickness by capturing various information through different types of sensors inbuilt in the device. It includes accelerometers, temperature, force, sound, and vibration sensor along with a data transfer protocol which is used to transfer and analyse data wirelessly.
In near future people with Glove Tricorder can self diagnose on their own without any assistance, this includes robotic breast examination for cancer thus saving millions of lives World-Wide.
Argus II is World’s First bionic eye which restores some vision for people suffering from blindness. Argus II consists of two devices one is surgically implanted on eye and other is Video processing unit (VPU) which includes Glass with a camera in the centre. Video camera attached to a pair of Oakley Glasses captures an image and this image is then transferred to the Video processing unit. VPU than process and converts this image into instruction and sends to the implant antenna wirelessly. These instruction are passed to electrode array which emits small pulses of electricity and thus this information is passed to the brain through optic nerve.
This device gives basic form of visual ability to the people suffering from blindness, In some cases user can read letters and distinguish between black and white.
Scientist from EPFL has developed a tiny blood testing laboratory which will provide immediate analysis of substance in the blood and sends this valuable result to a Doctor over cellular network. This device can be enormous achievement in the field of medical technology.This tiny blood laboratory prototype has already detected five different substances in the blood and it is reliable as traditional testing methods.
A tiny device is implanted just below the skin and it detects substances in the blood and transmits the results to doctor’s computer. Device can alert even before the symptoms emerges and it is useful in chemotherapy applications.
