A memorable day in the history of home improvement. 1860: Li-noleum. 1938: Teflon. 1945: Tup-perware.
2001: floating furnace-ture.
History is advancing.
Human beings seem to have an endless desire for invention.
Ten years ago, it was almost impossible to predict that fax machines and mobile phones would be part of everyday life by 1991.
According to a new book, they may be joined by voice by 2001
Automatic microwave, floating furniture, robot bartender and remote control
Vacuum cleaner. Dr. Myun W.
Li, a human factor engineer and director of the Institute of Engineering Science at Seoul National University in South Korea, believes that the world will become better thanks to his mushroomsshaped, remote-
Control vacuum cleaners are now being produced.
It works like a toy robot with a snapshot
Connect to the off control box on the handle.
\"If you are in the mood to exercise, go to the aerobics club,\" he said in a telephone interview . \". \"Don\'t vacuum.
\"Advertising\" more things for the future: malcolm Abrams and Harriet Bernstein will publish more than 250 inventions by Penguin Books next month, which will change your outer limits of exploring human ingenuity by 2001.
High speed from Gitzo-
This book records designs that are actually on the drawing board or in production.
Many ideas about advertising come from personal experiences.
\"We all have creativity,\" said Gerald Udel, a marketing professor at Southwest Missouri State University, who evaluated inventions for individuals and companies.
\"The question is, do we accept that creativity and what do we do with it?
\"Intelligence and intelligence need to match initiative.
If the operator of a Swiss machine store is not obsessed with burrs, there will be no Velcro.
If Oregon\'s track and field coach doesn\'t cram a piece of rubber into his wife\'s waffle iron, the world will be a better place without the Nike Waffle Sole.
According to Harold Liversey, a professor of business and economic history at Texas A & M University.
Despite the thriving startup culture, there is a tendency now to think that inventors are fools.
Compared to the days of Thomas Edison, he said, \"We have become very homogeneous.
\"There are risks for inventors.
He added.
\"Somewhere in the early 20 th century, we moved from risk --
Risk it-
Minimize society
So you see the risk-
Absent person
A professor of thought, an ordinary person with extraordinary thought.
Time will tell us which of their concepts will be future microwave ovens and which will be manual garbage comp machines (A new invention).
\"A robot bartender may not be able to change the world . \"Abrams.
But if we don\'t believe it anymore, we will stand still.
Here are some new inventions.
Vacuum cleaner. Myun W.
Li\'s motto is \"let your fingers clean up \".
\"Remote advertising-
The control vacuum cleaner, called the power brush, is a line \"high\"
\"Touch\" products are made by Daewoo Electronics in Seoul, South Korea.
When developing designs that are currently being produced but are being revised, Dr.
In Li Xin, there are \"disabled people, elderly people and elegant monks \"(
Estimated cost of $500).
To operate the brush, connect the control box to the base and take a seat.
To empty, lift the Fliptop lid. Most high-
Technology products force consumers
\"Ordinary people have to learn too much short-lived things,\" he added . \"\"Among Dr.
Li\'s invention is a voice.
Microwave and personalized TV.
After hearing the verbal order, the oven opens and delivers the tray.
Its database contains over 200 recipes to tell the chef when to \"prepare onions \";
This rather bold device will also have a personalized salt and sugar detector. Dr.
Li\'s TV adjusts the color according to the program.
\"If you are watching sports, you may want to emphasize red, blue and yellow,\" he explained . \".
\"Indicate \'drama\' and the color will be soft.
\"Babies exercise once a day, Drs.
Daniel and husband Louis fermaglishand-
Danville\'s wife, pediatrician. J.
Three babies were treated who were seriously injured in the Pacers.
\"Children move 5 feet per second in walkers,\" Lois Fermaglich said . \".
\"People will continue to use them if we don\'t come up with alternatives.
\"Fermaglichs accepted the challenge.
They have not yet found the manufacturer\'s stationary baby trainer to use the treadmill to allow the baby to exercise his legs without mischief.
The ad baby sits on a rotating seat in the middle of the round tray.
The device \"lets the baby use the first developed upper arm muscles and sit, stand, turn, look around the room and play,\" Dr.
Said fridges.
A long-term parenting problem is where the baby is. Dr.
Fermaglich says babies like fixed walkers.

She advised her parents to remove the Walker\'s wheel.
\"Frustration is the concept of parents,\" she said . \"
In Boston, Elise King, a architect, began dreaming of new ways to bring sunshine into buildings.
She and three colleagues, Hendrick.
Donald Thornton and David pitcher are developing holographic windows.
Their \"holographic diffraction structure\", a ridge-like plastic film that will fit into the window and bend the sun in a new way.
\"Instead of hitting the floor, it will hit the ceiling . \"King said.
\"The room was full of soft light, just like a large skylight with no holes.
\"Partner of advanced environmental research group
R in Providence. I.
A massive invention has not yet been made.
But full confidence in its feasibility and its impact on home design.
\"It usually takes a lot of glass to shine beautiful sunlight into buildings,\" she said . \".
\"This will bring better light to the small area.
You can even project the sun to where the plants are.
\"Floating furniture.
William Calderwood, a family opening doctor in Ariz Peoria.
There is a pretty Disney idea.
\"Space is so expensive,\" he said . \"
\"Wouldn\'t it be great, I suppose, if the bed could stand up solemnly from the floor?
\"The advertising doctor is quite serious about his patented invention, which is subject to his 6-year-
Adam, the old son of spinal muscle atrophy.
Working with Silver Rainbow in Hayward, California, Dr.
Calderwood developed a prototype helium.
The stuffed floating bed \"prevents pressure sore\", he said \".
Unlike the water bed, it is lighter than air.
BartenderStephen Grevan, president of bee robotics in Manhattan, said his robot was \"the first step towards a more fully automated home \". \"Mr.

There are three test units in the field: an atmospheric research laboratory 12,000 feet metres from the Rocky Mountains, a NASA laboratory in Mississippi, and a Biosphere 2 in Arizona.
We want to bring sustainable energy.
\"Efficient creatures are comfortable to remote areas,\" he said . \".
The cost of an \"eco-sensitive\" habitat is between $50 and $150 per square foot.
The idea, he said, was to \"combine the convenience and freedom of the RV with the size and comfort of the traditional building.
\"The future bicycle wheels are already on the market, and the design of these wheels is inspired by the wings of NASA.
They were designed by Mark W.
Hopkins is an avid cyclist and a senior research engineer in DuPont\'s senior composite division, as is his colleague Frank prencie.
The wheel has three thick high spokes instead of the blade spokes
Performance spokes like a large peace symbol configuration.
The wing shape allows the air to pass with minimal resistance, thereby reducing the resistance.
The wheels are made of aluminum rings and spokes made of carbon, epoxy, glass, and keffra fibers, enabling a serious motorcyclist to travel at a speed of one mile per hour.
$750 per round, that\'s what they want--
Although \"some people buy them because they look neat\"Hopkins said. Roll-

He finally succeeded in developing a prototype.
It has four flexible legs and rolls into a cylindrical container in one way-
A clever delaying device that stops cleaning before you go home (

French inventor Henry massennett has built a manual junk comp machine for post-90 s products that have already been sold on the market.
It is now distributed by Compac manufacturing company in Virginia Beach.
The retail price of the Comp machine is $39.
