by | Dec 10, 2015 | Inventions and Inventors

We talk a lot about intellectual property in general terms, because it can take the form of so many products and ideas across industry sectors. Today, however, we take a look at some specific inventions that made headlines this year.
As a small business owner or an emerging businessleader, you know that innovation is a key to your business growth and success, and perhaps this list of new innovations will inspire your own new ideas for the coming year.
Hackaball
This ball combines physical activity and STEM skills by allowing children, ages 6-10, to learn basic programming using an iPad or iPhone app.
Nima
For people who have celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity, it can be a shot in the dark to order in a restaurant. This portable sensor helps detect foods that contain gluten.
Eko Core
This stethoscope takes listening to a heartbeat or breathing to the next level: It records and transmits data to a physician’s smartphone.
Braigo
This braille printer, still in development, was created by its inventor using a Lego robotics kit.

The Shoe That Grows
This innovative shoe is adjustable and can be worn by the same, growing child for up to five years.
This diverse list of interesting new inventions highlights a truth that every inventor already knows: If you can identify an unmet need in the marketplace, you can create a product to meet that need. Whether you are tweaking an old idea or generating something completely new, innovation can help you tap into consumer or business demand and help your business grow.
As you close out this year and look toward a new one, we wish you happy inventing and successful innovating.
