Creators never stop surprising us with their new, out-of-the-box designs and projects. From smart sleep and relaxation devices to innovative gadgets that can stop menstrual cramps — it seems like the super high-tech future is closer than we might think — and we’re pretty excited about it.
Engineering Insider wants to keep our readers up to date, which is why we can’t wait to share our latest findings with you. They’re all so cool, we want each and every one of them.
1. A smart bed for cozy movie nights
This bed has a retractable 70-inch screen with a 4k projector. It also has a built-in light system that creates a pleasant atmosphere. In addition to this, users are provided with an app that allows the smart bed to analyze their sleep, temperature, weight, and the air quality in the room. All in all, it can easily become a place no one ever wants to leave.
2. An alarm that can brew fresh coffee for you
This compact and stylish machine serves 2 purposes — to wake you up in the morning and to serve you a warm drink. Depending on your mood and personal preferences, it can make either coffee or tea. This can serve as a good present for anyone who appreciates their special morning routine and wants a kick start to the new day.
3. A portable gadget that can stop menstrual pain
A group of creators decided to help women during their painful time of the month, and this is a drug-free solution. The way it works is rather interesting: the device stimulates the nerves and then blocks the pain from passing to the brain. Users just need to attach the device to their lower abdomen area so they can enjoy pain-free days.

As people become more aware of plastic pollution, a lot of us are attempting to switch to more sustainable products like reusable water bottles, straws, shopping bags, and more. But reusable drinking bottles can take some extra space in our bags, especially when they’re empty. This Difold product decided to solve this issue — it can be folded in seconds!
5. A hairdryer that doesn’t require a socket
Wireless devices and earbuds don’t surprise us these days. But as technology advances, more manufacturers are getting rid of the cords, like those who make hairdryers, for example. This product gives you the flexibility and freedom to bring it anywhere and use it anytime to make sure you look just perfect!

If you enjoy gardening and love adding fresh greens to your dishes, then you might find this machine interesting. Not only does it allow year-long cultivation, but it also has learning technology built in. It optimizes the growing process, takes care of your plants, and has software to monitor the whole process.
7. A smart device that makes you fall asleep faster
If you have problems with falling asleep and relaxing at night, this device might be very useful to you. It projects light onto the ceiling that changes and indicates a breathing pattern. All you need to do is inhale and exhale according to the light pattern, which eventually slows down your breathing, calms your mind, and makes you feel drowsy.
