A tooth tattoo that detects teeth-eating bacteria. A bionic retina. A next-level virtual reality visor. These are among the 10 invetions CNN has gathered together for it’s list of 10 inventions that will change life as we know it. Some are in early stages yet, but they’re already leaps and bounds ahead. Think of these as early smartphones or luggage with wheels — inventions that have come a long way, but whose practical genius totally reinvented the way we do some very basic things. And let’s be honest: could we imagine life without them at this point?
And we would like to modestly (a-hem) point out that one of these future-forward thingamajigs is something we told you about many moons ago: the much-anticipated Oculus Rift virtual reality visor. Do we know the future or what?
