Every now and then, we look at our home and try to figure out if anything’s missing. Technology is changing the way we live, and without some of those life changing innovations, your house is like a barren desert amid an oasis. That’s because we are living in a global age where the ideas have a short gestation period. So out of every thousand ideas, a dozen get to manifest themselves the same year.
Secondly, the internet has made youth an electrifying contributor to the entrepreneurship and they don’t have to throw proposals at multi-million dollar companies that won’t listen to them. Instead, young innovators are using platforms like KickStarter and Indiegogo where millions of supporters are available to back up their intelligent ideas.
This round of selection will be based on these futuristic projects that are expected to hit the markets in 2016. Now there are so many innovative things going on, but we are only including the truly life changing innovations that would practically enhance your living standard. These have to be the tech products that offer a world of promise and benefits.
Go through our list of top 5 life changing innovations of 2016 and tell us whether you agree with our selection or not. But we are confident that you would be thrilled, so brace yourselves. You can also check out Tech Products That Will Hold their Ground in 2016

Skarp Lazer Razer defines itself through its name and needs no explanation, thus is has to be part of our top life-changing innovations of 2016. This amazing technology has sadly received very little attention. That was a mistake because when we look at our current options we see so many ways it can be revolutionized for the better. Current razors, however advanced, continue to add to pollution, as we dispose of them, they become a liability to the world.
Furthermore, they are not very safe to use, they burn, can leave scars, damage our skin and not to mention, there is always a chance of infection. Skarp Lazer Razor can rid us off all these menaces. The accurate laser cutting tools have existed for ages, but no one ever thought about implementing the laser technology in-house machines like a razor.
Yes, there is one disadvantage of Lazer Razors… this life changing innovation, once popular, will completely shut down the factories that make shaving creams. But don’t worry about the unemployment rates because laser razor factories will take their place. For now just think about the skin conditions and disease that stem up from the notorious metallic blades.
Previous experiments showed that lasers can cut the black hair of the dogs, but there was no way to cut hairs of other colors and types, especially when it came to humans. However, that didn’t stop Skarp Technologies from digging into the big secret. The wavelength of laser light is the basic principle at work here, light waves resonate a specific material (determined by the size of the particle and wavelength of the light) and does so fast that chemical bonds break apart and the material is sliced off clean.
If lasers were to cut hair, there had to be some built-in protein molecule that naturally existed in all the hair. Tireless efforts finally yielded, they found a particular molecule that is present in everyone’s hair regardless of age and gender. Next step is implementation and Skarp is already working on prototypes. You can get more updates from its Indiegogo campaign.
Traditional metallic razors cut your hair from the raised shaft at an angle that causes a sensation of burning or itching. But Skarp’s Lazer Razor removes the hair directly from the part that is externally in contact with the skin and since the shaft breaks in its place, there is not pull so no burning. Skarp Lazer Razor is the smoothest shaving is ever going to get.
Nora is an anti-snoring aid device that reliably prevents you from snoring by momentarily activating the muscles of your throat. It comes with a beautifully designed interface and an expander that goes directly under your pillow. Just tap on the device when you go to sleep and your partner will never complain about your snoring ever again.
Nora is based on simple principle and presents an easy solution to the snoring problem. Snoring occurs when muscles surround the throat relax as we sleep, which narrows air passage and consequently the air you breathe in/out causes that ‘gurgling’ noise. When someone wakes you or moves your head even slightly, those muscles get re-energized and expand the air passage again, stopping the snoring.
Nora does the same without waking anybody and then them having to wake you up. When your snoring starts, Nora listens to your snore and pumps the air into the expander located under the pillow, which gently raises your head. This quickly stops you from snoring and the best part is that you won’t even notice. Moreover, you can sleep in any position; it won’t affect the performance of the device. Smart Nora is available for pre-orders at $239.
