What if elevators could move sideways, instead of just up and down

The elevator cars can travel in multiple directions and even pass each other within a shaft—features that could not only reduce wait times, but also fundamentally “change how buildings are constructed,”. Will be launched in Berlin by 2021

Michelin Airless Tires


3D printed airless tire made from recycled materials, which can be swapped in and out without changing the tire itself. Michelin estimates that a tire this advanced may still be as far as 20 years away. But some of its features, like airless designs and sensors that flag driv­ers when treads are wearing down, could become soon.

A Wi-Fi Router That Safeguards Your Smart Home

The Norton Core is designed to detect abnormalities; if one device is showing signs of a virus, the Core cuts it off it from the rest of your home network, much like a hospital would quarantine a sick patient. It also regularly updates its software to stay on top of new threats and “keep homeowners safe and secure.

GreenWave 3D Ocean Farm


The GreenWave’s crops offer compelling advantages: they’re protein-­rich, self­-sufficient (no fertilizer needed) and they even help combat climate change (by sequestering carbon as they grow).
