In 2010, the Bralorne Pioneer Museum uploaded a few images online. One of them immediately caught people’s attention and became a source of mystery. It was believed to be captured during the reopening of the South Fork Bridge in British Columbia circa 1941.
The picture displayed formally dressed men wearing coats and ties and elegantly dressed women wearing hats and sturdy overcoats.
Everything seemed normal, except for one guy: he was wearing a printed t-shirt and side shield sunglasses with a hand-held camera – all three things quite uncommon for that decade, let alone year.
Baffled by this, people believed he was from the future and dubbed him “the time-traveling hipster.” ðŸ˜¨
For many years, that photo was considered to be one of the very few solid proofs of time travel. Today, however, you’ll find plenty of examples – primarily in the technological industry – that proves we’re living in the future.
Don’t believe us?

Want to get weather updates without having to check your phone every time? Purchase “The Ambient Umbrella” for a rainy day (sorry, we couldn’t help). ðŸ˜œ
The umbrella has a built-in wireless radio that receives weather information and translates it into different light patterns. For instance, if there are chances of drizzle or thunderstorms, it gives out a soft pulse and quick flashes, respectively.
Considering the innovative feature, it’s no surprise that the umbrella costs around $125. ðŸ¤‘
Emptying the trash always feels like a burden, so why not let the garbage can do the work for you? Townew, a hi-tech US company, took this idea literally and invented a self-changing and self-sealing automatic trash can.
When the can detects motion, it opens the front lid, allowing you to throw garbage inside. Afterward, you have to long-press a button that will seal the bag, making it easier for you to remove it.
Oh, and the gadget also dispenses a new bag once you remove the old one. ðŸ¤¯
Need for Speed (or basically every other racing video game) allows players to change their vehicles’ colors. BMW is bringing this feature to real life with the help of E Ink technology. ðŸš—
The color-changing prototype car is called the iX Flow.
BMW reports that they were able to pull this off by applying an electrical stimulation that changes the vehicle’s color to black, white, or gray.
The German vehicle manufacturer hopes to add more colors in the future.
Here’s something for those in long-distance relationships. ðŸ’‘
LumiTouch has developed two interlinked frames. When a person comes near one of the frames, the other one’s background light glows. Likewise, when they touch a part of the frame, the other one’s area where it’s being touched glows.
The longer and harder you hold one of the frames, the other one’s color shifts in response. You could be miles away from each other, and the frames would still function perfectly.
LumiTouch claims that the frames are, in fact, inspired by long-distance couples. They’re like a virtual hug.
Darn it. Not even two years have passed since the world’s first foldable laptop was released, and it’s already becoming obsolete. ðŸ˜ª
Foldable-screen laptops are taking its place – yup, that’s right. The latest Asus device, 17 Fold OLED, works both as a 17-inch laptop and a 12.5-inch tablet.
It packs some pretty nice features, too, such as:
If you’re a parent of a newborn, your life probably revolves around ensuring your baby is sleeping fine. But checking the nursery every 5 minutes can get overwhelming.
Enter Mimo Smart Baby Monitor. ðŸ‘¶ðŸ»
The onesie is equipped with a sensor (machine washable) you can monitor in real life through your wi-fi network. From your little one’s body position to skin temperature, the gadget lets you know about many things.
And it’s available in multiple sizes: 0-3, 3-6, and 6-12 months.
There’s nothing new about robotic appliances. The last few years have witnessed a multitude of them. However, the Labrador Retriever, the latest invention of the technological industry, might be the best thing we’ve seen recently. ðŸ¤–
Simply put, the Labrador Retriever is a shelf on wheels. It can navigate around your house, help with laundry, set the dinner table, and more.
The robot was primarily developed for people with limited mobility. And those who have used it claim it’s like having a “third person” in the house.
Well, we’re not sure about you, but we can’t wait to get our hands on Wall-E. ðŸ˜‰
Considering how obsessed everyone is with their hair, it’s a little disappointing that it took this long for someone to come up with a hair coloring device. But if it saves us from a trip to the salon, then we’re not complaining. ðŸ¤©
We’re talking about none other than L’Oreal’s potentially life-changing gadget, Colorsonic. It’s meant to make dying your hair at home less messy and more convenient.
It looks pretty much like any other hair styling gadget: a top with a nozzle and bristles and a bottom from where you hold it. Using it is quite easy, too. Just select the desired shade, turn Colorsonic on, brush your hair, and voilà!
Get a color even Rapunzel would be jealous of. ðŸ’‡ðŸ»
Tired of losing and finding your remote batteries? ðŸ”‹
Well, you’re going to love Samsung’s latest offering, the Eco Remote. As evident from the name, the remote utilizes the radio waves from wi-fi routers to charge itself – no batteries required.
If the gadget makes its way into the mainstream audience, Samsung predicts it can help prevent 99 million AAA battering from being dumped in landfills over the next few years.
From smart devices to gaming headphones, showed us a lot of cool and futuristic gadgets. Although it’s good to see this progress in technology, we hope the human civilization doesn’t go too far.
Because we all know what happens when inventors get ahead of themselves, like in Terminator, Ex Machina, Avengers: Age of Ultron… you get the point.
