Instant Dry Umbrella: Shake to Dry
As handy as umbrellas are, they have some drawbacks. After your umbrella has protected you from the elements, you have to put it away somewhere so it can dry. If you put it on your hardwood floor, it leaves a puddle, and if you just toss it on your rug, it might even stain it.

The lenses in prescription eyeglasses are usually tailored to the wearer’s vision. There are also multifocal or progressive lenses that provide different focal powers, but each power is confined to portions of the lens. That’s why a company called Deep Optics is working on a pair of electronic eyeglasses that automatically change the entire lens’ focal power based on where the wearer is looking. Deep Optics’ Omnifocals have a transparent sheet of liquid crystals on both of its lenses.

CowTech Ciclop 3D Scanner: The One-eyed Scan is Cheap
Three years ago I used one of my cooler puns on the Photon 3D scanner, which I called cheap because you could snag it from its crowdfunding campaign for $390 (USD). CowTech Engineering’s $99 Ciclop 3D scanner takes that crown in a lop-sided price war, and supposedly without sacrificing on quality. The CowTech Ciclop can scan at up to 0.5mm

Artem Dementyev, Hsin-Liu (Cindy) Kao and Joseph Paradiso’s Sensortape consists of sensors that communicate with each other to detect their position in 3D.

But makers can save even more money by tapping into Amazon’s Alexa voice service using a single board computer. This DIY solution is possible because Amazon allows registered developers to access its Alexa for free.
