|10 Amazing Tech Inventions Of 2016 by daamazing(m): 3:21am On Dec 09, 2016|
1. Shoes That Tie Themselves( Nike HyperAdapt 1.0)
When wearers press a button near the tongue, the HyperAdapt 1.0s automatically tighten and loosen around their foot. And although this technology may sound frivolous, it’s not just for kicks: simplified shoe fastening could give athletes an edge during competition, and it’s especially useful for people with impaired motor function. “We’re already seeing powerful feedback” from the disabled community, says Tinker Hat, head of Nike's design team!
2. Self Balancing Scooter( Hoverboard)
The electric hoverboard is not a new invention, it was first used during mid 2014 and was launched 2015, but many people didn't get to know of till the year 2016 and except you've been living under a rock lately, you have most likely seen these cool new toys that have become extremely popular with celebrities and everyday people. It is able to go at a speed around 8km/h – 20km/h (depending on the model), it is also lightweight, smart and easy to move, and fun to ride. Some nice features of this amazing tech invention are;
It runs on batteries(1)
Easy to maintain(3)
3. Tires That Spin In Any Direction
Goodyear is reinventing their wheels. Its spherical concept tire, which debuted in March, allows cars to move in many new directions, including sideways into a parallel parking space and at specific angles and speeds to counteract slippery surfaces. The key, says Sebastien Fontaine, an industrial designer at Goodyear, is magnetic levitation: whereas traditional tires are bolted to cars, the Eagle 360s hover beneath them, free from “the limits of [traditional] steering.” To be sure, these tires won’t hit pavement anytime soon: they’re meant for self-driving cars that are likely at least five years away. In order to shift the status quo, says Fontaine, “we need different companies working with us, together.”

4. China's Heavenly Space Station
When China’s newest astronauts, Jing Haipeng and Chen Dong, arrived in orbit earlier this year, they docked at some impressive digs. Specifically: the orbital laboratory Tiangong-2 (Heavenly Palace 2), which is more than 34 ft. long and nearly 14 ft. wide and includes an exercise area and a medical-experiment bay. Yes, that’s all modest compared with the multimodule International Space Station (ISS), which is roughly the size of a football field, but it’s a remarkable machine all the same. China, after all, built Tiangong-2 on its own, just over a decade after launching its first man into space; the ISS is a collaboration among 15 nations, including space veterans like the U.S. and Russia. China’s next move: launching the core module for a much bigger space station, set to happen sometime in 2018.
