With a gravity jet suit, flying around in the sky is easy. TIME
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.

Lifepack Carry-on Closet

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.

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.

So when you get to your destination, you just need to take out the shelf system and hang it in your hotel closet.


Becoming separated from friends in crowds or losing contact with your family in a strange place can be a nightmare.

But now, LynQ, a new location tracker has a fix.

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.

In addition, an onscreen dot points each user in the right direction, like a compass.

As Time notes, “LynQ solves the three Ws: No more worrying, wandering or waiting around.”

Gravity jet suit

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.

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.
