Frackers really must think the public are stupid. First, creating the petroleum gel is even more environmentally harmful than water. Second, it doesn't eradicate all the other pollutants, it doesn't stop the vast array of issues with well casings failing, it doesn't stop earthquakes.... ffs

Don't think Korean air traffic control will be best pleased with the invisible skyscraper!

EmergenSee, a world leader in mobile technology that turns your Smartphone or tablet into a personal safety system. EmergenSee’s patented technology allows users to stream detailed Live Video, Audio and GPS information (Location and Movements) to pre-selected contacts/responders when serious or potentially dangerous situations are encountered.  EmergenSee is discreet, fast and easy to use.   With just one tap of the app, contacts can immediately see, hear and follow the incident as it unfolds and effectively react to the situation.  Even if the user's phone is destroyed during an incident all the data transmitted to your contacts is stored and archived in EmergenSee's secured servers.

There ARE artificial pancreas' in test phases, but the one on this list is simply an insulin pump. You still have to calculate carbs, and change out insulin and caths every 3 days. It's painful still and not a simple process.

Great inventions always solve problems before they become epidemic. The amount of reception which general public gives to a new invention is also an important aspect of it.

The medtronic device in NOT an artificial pancreas. This bears a retraction/correction. It is an insulin pump tha will shut itself off if the wearers blood sugar drops below a set point. There is MUCH more to managing this disease than that. People with type I diabetes must MANUALLY MANAGE an autonomic function. This device does not change that. it is merely a step closer to an AP.

The Medtronic device is NOT an artificial pancreas. You've done an incredible dis-service to those suffering with Type 1 Diabetes by spreading this rubbish.

The fact that you put a Navy drone on this list is pathetic and shameful.

The Portuguese and Spanish researchers credited here for creating the alcoholic coffee may not be the first inventors of this novel coffee-based beverage. To my knowledge, a winemaker in southwestern China's Yunnan Province had already created and patented a coffee-based wine in 2012. The process this winemaker developed was basically the same as that described by the researchers cited here but with two key differences. One was that they used fresh ground coffee instead of used grounds. The other, perhaps more interesting feature, was that they fermented the mixture with tropical fruits, which gave the alcohol a nice fruity flavor. I tasted the wine during my visit to Yunnan in September 2012. It was aromatically stunning and unlike any wine I had ever tasted. 

If anyone is interested -- the coffee wine sold by this winemaker and its patent information can be seen here: http://detail.1688.com/offer/36084113407.html.   Here is a newspaper article (in Chinese) about the invention of this wine: http://www.ynsjx.com/html/2013/innews_0307/1532.html.

How about the Oculus Rift?  I'm not sure that came out in 2013 but it sure was cool.

The edible pill password? Umm, why? Just -- WHY? What's wrong with biometrics? Presumably someone could pilfer your pack of password pills and pillory all your privacy. Besides, presumably you'd have to pay for that pack of pills whereas thumbprints are free.

The U.S. is missing a huge opportunity to cultivate innovation by not using the petit patent system of Australia.   I do not fully understand it, but what I do understand is that petit patents for those things which are less industrial and more kitchen / toy  can receive some limited patent protection .     Go inventors !  Your success is my success !    W/O a special court system to resolve Patent disputes though we might as well not have patents.  It now costs about $1 million to prepare to defend your patent in court.  Getting the patent is only the tip of the expensive patent ownership scheme.

Misleading title... I still need to buy a time magazine in order to see 20 more inventions!

These are real innovative things which has helped all of us to realize that we can look at things with different perspective. people in the 18th century believed that whatever needed to be invented, has been invented. But in hindsight we all know answer to that. Human race has survived for thousands of years because we are hard-wired to better ourselves. We must salute these great inventors.

It’s an absolute joke as to what the patent office considers an invention.

Just combining two things does not create an invention. Joining a Teddy Bear to a MP3 player is not innovative. Even fools on the streets know if you join a Teddy and a MP3 player you get a musical Teddy Bear.

It is the combination of technologies in a specific way that solves a Technical Problem that creates an invention. Joining a bag and a fan gives a floating flag. Not really innovative, everyone knows this will happen. A bag and a fan in a specific configuration that produces a Vacuum was innovative at its time. The ordinary person on the street would not know how to do this. Today it is common knowledge to quite a few.

The Paten process is designed to help corporations recoup their skilful development of ideas.

The corporations that have ruined the patent process do not even have a single skilled employee. They would not recognise skill even if it was right in front of them. They patent just about everything since to idiots everything is innovative!

@khi.mah.uk "It is the combination of technologies in a specific way that solves a Technical Problem that creates an invention."

Rather than 'specific' I believe the term you are looking for is 'non-obvious'.

@PageMcMillanTaylor  I ordered the 530G and wore it for a month. An artificial pancreas it is not. The FDA has mandated that the pump have a non-silenceable alarm system, that makes the device completely unsuitable for certain individuals, especially those that have high profile positions and those that are extremely active.
