Inventions make the world better, smarter and even a little bit more fun. Last year, in November, Time magazine published “2018 Top 50 inventions”. Here, TEENS has selected three of the most interesting inventions for you. Let’s take a look.
新发明让世界变得更美好,更智能,甚至更有趣。去年11月,《时代周刊》选出了“2018年50项最佳发明”。本报在此为你选出了3项最有趣的发明。让我们一睹为快。

Lifepack Carry-on Closet
自带衣柜的旅行箱

In many cases, traveling is fun, but packing can be quite annoying. No matter how neatly you pack your clothes, you always end up having to pull out everything in order to find what you need.
在多数情况下,出门旅行是件乐事,但打包行李却也十分烦人。不论将衣物打包得多么整齐,最终,你还是不得不把所有东西都从箱子里掏出来,才能找到所需的物品。

Well, the Lifepack Carry-on Closet designed by the Danish startup Solgaard Design might change that for good.
那么,由丹麦初创公司Solgaard Design所设计的这款“自带衣柜的旅行箱”或许能一劳永逸地改善这种情况。

From the outside, the Lifepack looks like an ordinary suitcase. But inside, it contains a set of retractable shelves to keep clothes in good order and maximize the space. Its shelf system has many extra pockets and is removable.
从外观上看,这个旅行箱和普通的行李箱没什么两样。但箱子里却装有一套伸缩自如的隔板,能够让衣物分门别类、整整齐齐,并且最大化地利用空间。这套可装卸的衣架系统中还有不少额外可摘下来的口袋。

So when you get to your destination, you just need to take out the shelf system and hang it in your hotel closet.
所以,当你到达目的地时,只需取出这套衣架,将其挂在酒店的衣柜里即可。

LynQ
指向亲友的指南针

Becoming separated from friends in crowds or losing contact with your family in a strange place can be a nightmare.
在人群中与朋友走散,或者在陌生的地方与家人失联,都是一场噩梦。

But now, LynQ, a new location tracker has a fix.
而如今,定位追踪器LynQ有办法解决这一问题。

When you wear LynQ, you use a combination of GPS technology and long-range radio frequencies to find other LynQs to a distance of up to 5 kilometers from you.
佩戴上LynQ指南针后,你能够使用其GPS定位技术以及远程无线电频率,来找到5公里以内的其他LynQ指南针。

In addition, an onscreen dot points each user in the right direction, like a compass.
此外,屏幕上还会出现一个亮点,指出每个用户所在的正确方向,就像指南针一样。

As Time notes, “LynQ solves the three Ws: No more worrying, wandering or waiting around.”
正如《时代周刊》所言:“LynQ解决了三大问题:让人们不再担心、无目的地乱找或者在原地等待。”

Gravity jet suit
钢铁侠飞行服

If you’re a big fan of Iron Man, you must have been impressed by his amazing jet suit. Now, there is a real gravity jet suit for us to try.
如果你是钢铁侠的忠实粉丝,你一定对他那件超赞的飞行战衣印象深刻。现在,我们也能穿上一件真正的飞行服了。

Developed by London-based technology company Gravity Industries, the flying suit is equipped with five power engines – four are built into units close to the hands and one is built into a backpack.
这套飞行服由伦敦科技公司Gravity Industries 研发,其上装有5个喷气发动机 —— 4个安装在靠近手部的装置中,1个装在背部装置中。

If these engines fuel together, they can provide 1,050 horsepower to make the wearer move at speeds of up to 51 kilometers per hour. So, for people who can balance with the suit on, it’s easy to fly.
如果这5个发动机同时运转,系统能够提供1050马力,令穿戴者的飞行时速可达51公里。因此,只要人们穿上飞行服之后能够保持平衡,飞行便不是件难事。
