 Inventions to Look Forward to in 2010 Include Viagra Sheets
Some of the most awaited inventions of 2010 include viagra sheets, 3D TV and mind reading computer games.

The Sun has compiled a list of such revolutionising inventions that one could look forward to in the New Year, and few of them are:

Viagra Sheets

Spanish genius Pep Torres, 44, has used nanotechnology to infuse the sex drug's arousing ingredient into the fibres of a bed sheet.

When people get into bed the viagra soaks into their skin and gets into the bloodstream.

"It started as a joke after we saw a German study that said businessmen get little sex because they are too tired from work," the Sun quoted Pep as saying.

"But we got so many calls after launching it that we're going into production.

"The people we got to test them said they felt their heads pumping, and so was another thing. And they couldn't concentrate on anything except...well, you know," he added.

He unveiled the invention at the 9th British Invention Show at London's Alexandra Palace last July.

Mind reading computer game controllers

Very soon shoppers will be able to snap up a headset that reads electrical signals in their brain and allows them to play computer games just with the power of their mind.

Emotiv's Epoc headset (available in US for 299 dollars) could make fantasy gamers cast a spell just by thinking of it.

The technology could also have applications in space travel, flight and education - imagine learning about World War One by playing a soldier in the trenches.

Already, people with disabilities are using Epoc to control their wheelchairs.

3D Telly

Several big name brands are planning to release 3D tellies next year.

ESPN is even test-recording some sporting events in 3D using cameras with two sets of lenses.

Sony, Phillips and Panasonic are among the top names expected to bring out 3D TV next year and the cost would be same as a High Definition set.

So watt, big deal

In summer 2009 a conglomerate of 20 German companies including E.ON - agreed a deal which will see plants spring up across northern Africa which will evetually produce 100 gigawatts of clean energy.

According to initial plans, the power will be transported to Europe along high-voltage DC lines across the Med - but could one day be transported wirelessly.

Two weeks ago the World Bank agreed to pay 5.5billion pounds for another project to build 11 solar units, which will produce one gigawatt by 2015. This will benefit North African states like Tunisia, Algeria, Egypt as well as the Middle East.

The excess heat from the solar panels will also be used to convert seawater into drinkable water for people and use in farming.

One size fits all phone charger

A deal signed between ten major phone companies will see them make a charger that wills work on 90 per cent of mobiles from Blackberrys and iPhones to Nokias and Samsungs.

The new standard charger will replace more than 30 different kinds of charger that are currently in use across Europe - where there are 400million mobiles.
