4 of the Best Inventions of 2017

Time magazine recently released its "Best Inventions of 2017 List" and like years past, there's no part of our lives that won't be touched by these amazing creations. We picked some of our favorites from their list to share with you.

1. eSight

The device allowed a man to see for the first time in 20 years! It uses a headset with high speed HD cameras that zoom and focus giving the visually impaired the ability to see. Right now one these bad boys is $10,000, but the company expects the price to drop as the tech becomes mainstream.

2. Halo Top

A sweet invention that temps our taste buds, without the calories. Halo Top is a low sugar ice cream sweetened with all natural Stevia. It's about $5 a pint at your local grocery store and there are over 20 different flavors you can choose from.

3. Nintendo Switch

The game system allows you to play at home and on the go. The detachable controllers even lets you share the fun with friends! Jump to your nearby big box store where you can grab it for $300.

4. Ember Mug

 

It solves a very real first world problem, keeping your coffee at the right temperature! The cup comes in both a travel and a home ceramic version, both of which use a custom heating coaster. You can find one at a Starbucks starting at $79.95.
