1 - Camera Iris/aperture Mechanism
2 - Wooden Air Raid Siren
3 - Mini Tesla Turbine with magnetic Bearings
4 - 2D/3D Hybrid Printing
"Digital 3D enhancement resides between 2D digital printing and 3D fabrication, aka Additive Manufacturing (AM). Like 2D printing, its primary task is graphic, albeit offering the potential for enhancing substrate structure and function. Like 3D fabrication, it is typically printed in multiple layers, but unlike it, 3D enhancement does not aim to produce objects thicker than a fraction of a millimeter."

6 - DIY Lifesized BB-8 Droid
7 - "Transparent Wood"
8 - Non-penetrating solar roof mount
9 - "Second Skin" Polymer
Scientists at MIT, Massachusetts General Hospital, Living Proof, and Olivo Labs have developed a new material that can temporarily protect and tighten skin, and smooth wrinkles. With further development, it could also be used to deliver drugs to help treat skin conditions such as eczema and other types of dermatitis.
10 - Magnetic Hyperloop
A startup called Hyperloop One (formerly Hyperloop Technologies) built the first full-scale test track for the transportation system in the desert outside Las Vegas and tested its propulsion system for the first time. Meanwhile, another startup called Hyperloop Transportation Technologies announced that it had licensed a promising technology known as Inductrack from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory for its own Hyperloop design.
11 - Ingestible origami robot
Researchers at MIT, the University of Sheffield, and the Tokyo Institute of Technology have demonstrated a tiny origami robot that can unfold itself from a swallowed capsule and, steered by external magnetic fields, crawl across the stomach wall to remove a swallowed button battery or patch a wound.
