The 9 Most Important Inventions of 2012

Indoor Cloud

Price: Priceless


Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde, has created the first indoor cloud. It appears only for a moment, but is described in TIME Magazine as "dramatic and strangely moving... [evoking] both the surrealism of Magritte and the classical beauty of the old masters while reminding us of the ephemerality of art and nature."


25 cents a bottle (estimated)

5 MIT students have created a material from which anything slides off effortlessly. From ketchup out of bottles, to ice off airplane wings, surfaces just got a whole lot cleaner (and safer).

OraQuick Home HIV Test

Price: $40

For the first time, there's a DIY HIV test. It uses the same technology that medical professionals use when conducting the test. The kit includes a 24-hour help line and resources for dealing with a positive result.

Enable Talk Gloves

Price: $75

Thanks to the work of four Ukrainian students, deaf and mute people can now communicate with those who don't know sign-language while still signing. The sensors within the gloves translate recognize the signs, translate theme into text messages and then turn the messages into spoken words. Unbelievable.

Nike Fly-Knit Racer

Price: $150

The new Nike shoe will fit your feet better what with it being made of a single layer of thread. It grips and gives despite the absence of layered materials--often the method of engineering in most shoes. To boot, it's eco-friendly, leaving less wasted material on factory floors.

Body Armor for Women

Price: $550

Having realized women are not small men, the US military has begun testing body armor suited for female bodies. The 101st Airborne Division’s 1st Brigade will test the new armor during an upcoming deployment to Afghanistan.

Google Glass

Price: $1,500

Google glass is basically Google in your glasses. Situated at the top corner of the right frame is a mini computer screen, which will come into focus when looked at. No doubt this one raises a controversial subject: should augmented reality become part of our reality constantly? Regardless, it's an impressive and important step in technology.


Price: $22,000

A factory-line worker that requires no hourly-wage. That is, until it develops a soul and takes revenge on its human oppressors. I'm not sayin... I'm just sayin.

The Curiosity Rover

$2.5 billion

Not only does Curiosity look like the gigantic, 1-ton offspring of the beloved Number 5 from Short Circut, it brought the U.S. to Mars in a way it had never done before. TIME points out that what might be the most "sublime" part of this creation is how it landed on mars: the rover was lowered to the ground on cables by a hovering capsule, touching down balletically in preparation for two years of exploration."
