It is truly incredible at what rate new technology is being designed. Just 30 years ago we had no idea what a cellphone was and now every kid has a smartphone that he can call, text, send emails with and basically do anything you can do on a regular computer. Smartphones are the norm these days, but there are some smart gadgets that you didn’t even know existed. These 9 devices are like something out of a sci-fi movies, but they actually exist!
1. Touch-Hear Dictionary
Scientists in Singapore created this incredible device in order to make reading easier. It’s a text recognition dictionary that consists of 2 parts. A sensor attached to your fingertip and a tiny speaker attached to your ear. With this incredible dictionary you can just touch the word you don’t understand in the book with your fingertip and the meaning of it will be immediately explained to you in your ear. The best thing about it, is that no one else can hear that speaker, only you.
2. Sonogram Belt

4. The Cicret
This little gadget is truly impressive. You know how in all the futuristic movies people don’t even have phones or tablets or laptops. Things are just projected onto thin air?

It’s a great solution for those who spend their evenings tossing and turning for hours, struggling to fall asleep.
7. Smart Bra
This is much more than a regular bra. It can actually help diagnose breast cancer! This smart bra called EVA was designed by a young Mexican boy after his mother almost died of cancer because of a wrong diagnosis. EVA works by monitoring the temperature and weight of the breasts. A change in those parameters means there’s something wrong, like increased blood flow in the breast could be feeding a tumor. You can monitor these changes through an app, downloaded to your smartphone.
8. Light Therapy Mask
Neutrogena came out with a light therapy mask that claims to brighten and overly improve the condition of your skin. Who knew you could do that without using old fashioned clay masks? All you have to do is wear this mask for 10 minutes a day and you should see improvement in a month. The mask is equipped with two types of LED lights: blue lights kill bacteria and red lights reduce inflammation.
