The end of 2021 is approaching, which means that little by little everyone is starting to sum up its results. For example, Time magazine published an annual rating of the best inventions of the past 12 months.
In total, the list includes the 100 best projects. In 2021, it includes developments in the categories “Productivity”, “Robots”, “Toys and Games”, “Education”, “Consumer Electronics”, etc.
So, for example, among the projects that have a positive effect on productivity, there was a place for the search engine Neeva. Its distinctive feature is a subscription model, which, in turn, relieves users of the need to face intrusive ads. The issue price is $ 4.95 (359 rubles) per month. There is a trial period of three months.
Another interesting find of Time in 2021 is the “smart” system for quality sleep Moona. It is based on a column that comes with a pillowcase. With the help of the latter, you can regulate the temperature of the pillow right at night, thereby improving the sleep itself. There is also the ability to track different phases of a user’s sleep. The whole set costs 399 dollars (28.9 thousand rubles).
Another “hero” of the rating was a robot for teaching children to program. This is all done through solving puzzles and building labyrinths. It costs $ 99.99 (7.2 thousand rubles) per set.
