It’s fun to imagine how inventions and gadgets that are currently being developed could alter the course of an average day. Let’s start with an imaginary bike ride to get coffee. But there’s something new about the design of the bike. After parking the bike, there’s no need to worry about anyone stealing these wheels because the bike can safely be wrapped around a pole for storage. Once that coffee order is in, you may realize that iPhone needs a charge but the charger is at home on your desk. No problem. You can stick this iPhone to the window for a quick solar boost. Want to write yourself a note? Use the pen with ink that changes color. Spill coffee on your favorite t-shirt? Again, not a problem. Your clothes are chemically designed to resist stains and can easily be wiped clean. When it’s time to throw that empty coffee cup in the trash, you won’t need expert pitching skills. The trashcan is programmed to move to where you are. Instant home run.
