Here is the annual award nominees People's Design Award, which is part of a larger event National Design Awards, held each year by the Smithsonian National Design Museum Cooper-Hewitt.
 
Nine most interesting projects this year, you can see below:
 
Epidermal Electronics - adhesive on the skin fitness tracker
4384049_1 (700x466, 39Kb)
 
Designed in the form of tiny adhesive on the skin of the PCB, this fitness tracker monitors parameters such as heart rate, and can pass them directly to your doctor via a wireless connection. It also monitors other parameters by which to identify at an early stage of the disease such as Parkinson's disease.
DEKA Arm - tech bionic arm
 
This new bionic arm boasts the most sophisticated technologies available today. Embedded in muscle electrodes may interact with the computer that sends signals to the prosthesis. An unprecedented level of accuracy allows the hand, for example, to keep the fingers in a grape without crushing it.
 
Spor - charger that uses the sun's energy
 
 
This attractive charger runs on solar energy and takes up less space compared to other adapters.
 
Lumio Lamp - LED lamp-book

Silic Shirt - T-shirt waterproof

Fungal building blocks
 
 
The invention of "mushroom architect" Philip Ross, these building blocks created from mycelial fibers were surprisingly resistant to water, fire and mold. The result is a structural element that can replace more toxic components in concrete, or a heater.
 
Drift Light - «smart» light
 
 
This conceptual lamp can be used for normal lighting - but it can also switch to night mode. Then during the 37 minutes it will gradually reduce the level of lighting in the room. Such a smooth transition will help your body to better prepare for bed.
