With so many trials and tribulations in the world today with cancer, paralysis, kidney disease, poverty and more, everyone continues praying for big ideas to come on how to fix our many problems. Here is a list of some ideas I recently came across on AOL Small Business that are sure to change the world!
- Lifestraw is a wondrous device that can turn the worlds dirteist water into clean drinking water. Imagine all the emergency situations where this would come in handy for someone.
- Acuset provides a cheap and precise alternative to the $2,000 microprocessor-controlled syringe pumps that are used to ensure accurate and safe medicine and re-hydration fluid delivery by intravenous infusion in the first world. Because about 2.5 billion IV sets are used annually throughout the developing world -- and when administering potent drugs even a 3mm mistake can be fatal -- the $6 controller could save millions of lives.
- Restoring sight to the blind. Imagine being born blind and in your 20's or 30's undergoing an operation where a camera is fitted to you and wires strung to the right parts of your brain in order to restore sight! Imagine seeing EVERYTHING for the first time ever.
- Printing skin. Even the best plastic surgeons have a hard time repairing severely damaged disfigurements and burn victims. But the University of Manchester may be able to change that someday with their technology in printing skin. Using 3D images in order to create an exact replica of skin tissue in order to grow the skin cells perfectly.
