Game-Changer Smartphones start replacing alarm clocks with apps to help jumpstart the day and eliminate the need for one more device, saving space and money.
A Look Back at Game-Changing Technologies
Humanity is developing innovations based upon existing technologies and mannerisms, answering today’s demands with the future in mind.
See how past practices have laid the groundwork for future innovations in our homes.
Light Bulb Moment Incandescent light bulbs are invented in the 19th century by Thomas Edison and are the second-most common form of lighting behind fluorescent lights today.
Let There Be LED Light The new hue light products by Philips adjust brightness from a smartphone app to match ideal light settings for reading, relaxing, concentrating, and energizing based on the pigment of the LEDs.
Good Morning, Sunshine In the early 1990s, digital analog alarm clocks with AM/FM radio enter the market and wake up sleepyheads around the world.
Up and App 'em! A plethora of smartphone apps are available for any sleeper persona. The FreakyAlarm iOS app has an alarm that can only be silenced by solving a series of games or scanning objects around your house.
Game-Changer LED, or light-emitting diode, technology is more efficient and better for the environment than incandescent bulbs, which use a higher percentage of electricity and give off heat.
New Technologies Are Changing the Name of the Game
Relying on past innovations and adopting new technological
breakthroughs early on will reshape what’s ahead.
Powerful discoveries like Energizer
batteries lead the way to a bright future.
Recycled battery materials have
limited use, having been
predominantly used in the
creation of road beds. Energizer
begins to explore a new battery
manufacturing process requiring
less mining of virgin materials
while maintaining the product
The Future of
vision is that by 2025,
40 percent of the battery will be
made with recycled battery
developing plans to expand the use
of recycled battery materials across
proprietary partnerships and an
innovative approach that refines and
transforms recycled battery material
into a high-performance active
ingredient. And as a result,
the world’s first AA battery made with
4% recycled batteries and their
longest-lasting alkaline battery.
Keep Your Floors Tidy After getting frustrated with dust clogs in 1978, James Dyson sets out to invent a new vacuum that could capture small particles of dust without a bag.
The Rise of Robot Vacuums More than 10 million home vacuum robots have been sold worldwide, making it easier for busy families to maintain clean floors with less hassle.
Game-Changer In 1990, roboticists from Massachusetts Institute of Technology invent the iRobot Roomba and begin revolutionizing the way people clean floors.
As Seen On TV In June 1951, CBS broadcasts the first commercial color television program. The public slowly adopts color programming, and by 1970 more color TV sets are sold versus black-and-white sets.
What Should I Binge-Watch Next? HBO Now, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Netflix offer video streaming services. Netflix has 60 million international subscribers with users spending a combined total of 10 billion hours a month
Game-Changer On-demand television allows the viewer to control the content they want to see when they want to see it. This new model of television makes nearly every show readily available and welcomes new media companies.
