Every day we use gadgets that didn’t exist 5 years ago, and it seems that it’s impossible for anything to surprise us. However, some inventions are so unusual that it seems they came directly from the future.
Bright Side collected the most amazing gizmos that are about to change our lives completely.
19. A glass that turns water into wine

18. "Smart" glasses
There are many cool things about Vue glasses: they can make calls, transmit music, and be a navigator, pedometer, and calorie counter. The main thing is that they have a "Find my glasses" function, so you won’t need to spend hours looking for your glasses. Vue glasses look like regular glasses (there’s also an option for sunglasses), they are controlled by touch, and they have a special case with wireless charging.

Senstone can be attached to clothes or hung on one’s neck as a pendant. With just one click, the device starts transforming speech into text with 97% precision. It’s the dream of all students: now you don’t have to write down lecture notes! The pendant "understands" 12 languages.
15. A mat with a built-in alarm clock

It was initially created for those in emergency conditions and for people living in developing countries without enough fresh clean water.

It can be useful when you are not sure of the quality of the water you are drinking.
12. Packaging that changes color if the product inside is expired
A company named Braskem collaborated with American and Brazilian scientists to create a type of plastic that can change its color depending on рН levels. It can be used to produce packaging for perishable foods. Soon we will see for ourselves how fresh the milk in a supermarket really is.

Smart Parka is a dream for those who constantly lose their gloves because they are integrated into the "smart" coat along with a scarf and cap. The length of the coat can be altered, and there are numerous gadget pockets inside. There is also a geotag inside, which can be useful if the coat is lost or stolen. Of course, it’s very warm as it was specially created for cold Canadian winters.
9. A pocket cinema

There is also a holder for a ring, and the countdown stops when a ring is inserted. The bra also includes a holder for a seal and a pen — the inventor took good care of those who like to sign contracts and agreements before getting married.
