In this age of technology, smarties everywhere are inventing things to make our lives easier and more productive. A lot of these inventions either sound too good (or weird) to be true, and sometimes that's just what they are. Can you identify what's real and what's just concept? Take this quiz of our Real or Concept gadgets of the past to find out!
This is one ereader that would be even easier to transport than my Kindle! The eRoll features a rollable, flexible screen that, when not in use, rolls easily into a protective tube. It's a great idea, but is it real or fake?
These Orange Power Wellies, perfect for trudging around often-rain-soaked festival grounds, actually charge your phone by converting the heat from your feet into an electrical current. The only downside? It takes 12 hours of feet-heat for one hour of charging.
They're a great idea, but are these wellies real or fake?
This PC is sleek and ultraportable — at just 1.8 pounds and with two (one upper, one lower) multitouch screens, you can take this Windows 7 device anywhere to watch movies, hop on the Internet, and multitask like on a full-fledged laptop. This PC would come stocked with 2GB of RAM, a 62GB hard drive, along with Microsoft Office and Skype for easy Internet calling. Sounds great, but tell me — is it real or fake?
The Kodak Brownie was a camera introduced in the early 1900s but was made popular in the '60s to commemorate special events like the World's Fair. This new and reimagined design takes the classic Brownie's square shape and brings it to life with playful colors. It's said that this design was made to celebrate the 2012 Olympics, but tell me — is it real or fake?
The Power Line-Up is a power socket devoid of individual plugs; two long slots (three for international plugs) run the length of the strip, allowing for multiple plug-ins. Not only is it space-conscious, but it also easily accommodates awkwardly shaped plugs from cell phones, chargers, or other devices. Is this product real or fake?
One obvious shortcoming of the iPad is its lack of a camera, especially given one of the iPhone 4's coolest features, FaceTime video chatting. So check out the iPad Cam-Case, a protective iPad case that also includes — you guessed it — a camera. Located in the top corner of the case, the camera rotates to capture your face no matter what angle you're holding the iPad. A built-in port at the bottom of the case connects with your iPad.
Amazing idea, but is it ready to hit shelves or just a concept?
