Happy Creativity and Innovation month (it’s truly only one day, on April 21st, but lets just say the month)! We should all be proud of what we have in front of us today and what to look forward to in the future! We’ve went from having a gas-powered car with three wheels to having an electronic car that can self-park. From sending letters in the mail or messenger people by foot to sending text messages or facetime! I know that today is Tech Thursday, but I believe that ALL innovations should be celebrated. Even though some of the old methods we have are still utilized, we now have the option to pick a method then being told it can only be done one way! So, I would like to take a little time to give some insight to a few the new innovations from 2018!
1. Gravity Industries has made everyone’s dream come true with an IRONMAN replica suit! Although IRONMAN wasn’t the thing they were going for, they definitely nailed giving “a suite of patent pending technology to enable unparalleled human flight”. The Jet Suit can currently fly for 5-10 minutes at 32mph! Richard Browning, founder of Gravity Industries, just started this organization in 2017. Just image what the future has in store for them!
2. Some may think that all drones are all the same drone but that is not the case with MAVIC 2 Pro by DIJI. This drone is every photographer’s ‘gotta have’. The MAVIC 2 Pro is equipped with 1-inch CMOS Sensor, 10-bit Dlog-M Color Profile, HDR video, and adjustable aperture. This drone “embodies all of DJI's advanced, signature technologies, and is able to redefine what is possible for the world of aerial photography”.
3. We’ve all heard of Gorilla Glue. Well lets meet Gorilla Glass! Corning Gorilla Glass 6 was designed with the end user in mind! “Corning scientists engineered tougher and more durable Corning® Gorilla® Glass 6. Subjected to a new and rigorous test methodology in our labs, on average, Gorilla Glass 6 survived 15 consecutive drops from 1 meter onto rough surfaces and is up to 2x better than Gorilla® Glass 5. Under the same test conditions, competitive glass compositions didn’t even survive the first drop. Gorilla Glass 6 also survives at higher heights than Gorilla Glass 5. All good reasons to better ensure you’ll stay connected today, and all the days to come, with a device featuring tough, durable Corning Gorilla Glass 6”. Parents, or adults that always drop your phone, this may be the best investment needed in order to prevent a damaged screen!
The list of new innovations for 2018 and go on and on. From the newest smartphone technology to the creation of the fastest electric car! Creativity and Innovation Day (or month) in my mind should take place every day (or month) for all of the amazing things that mankind takes from a thought and make it into a reality! Feel free to let me know about some recent innovations or innovations that you are proud that we have today or may get in the future!
