The Most Innovative Inventions of the Last Decade

The most innovative inventions of the last decade have changed the way we live our lives. They have helped us solve problems, and they have even made the world a better place to live.

Inventions and Technology

Humans have been creating innovative inventions for centuries, but some of the most important advances have happened in the last decade. Whether it is the creation of self-driving cars, AI-enabled smart home devices, or robots that can perform surgeries, these innovations have made a huge impact on our everyday lives.

Some of these inventions have been a huge success, while others haven’t. We’ve listed a few of the most popular inventions of the past decade below, and have provided a brief overview of how they came to be.

Apple iPad

The iPad has gone down in history as one of the most revolutionary computer innovations ever created. It smashed the expectations of what a tablet computer should be, and people started using it for all sorts of new uses that they had never considered before. From point-of-sale terminals, to in-car entertainment, to sales presentations, the iPad revolutionized how businesses and consumers used computers.

Self-Driving Cars

While self-driving cars haven’t quite hit the market yet, they’re definitely on the horizon, and companies like Google, Tesla, and Uber are working hard to develop them into a reality. The idea of an autonomous vehicle has been around for years, but the emergence of mobile apps and GPS tracking have made it possible to make these vehicles practical for most users.


Digital imagining technology has come a long way in the last decade, and new TVs are far more energy efficient than clunky tube models from the past. They also have improved resolution, meaning you can get sharper visuals no matter what screen size you have.

MP3 Players

The ubiquity of MP3 players is proof that digital music has finally surpassed the vinyl and cassette tape formats. It’s a simple, convenient way to store music on your device and enjoy it whenever you want. It’s also more durable than CDs and vinyl, so you don’t have to worry about them breaking down over time.

Virtual Assistants

In the last decade, a number of big tech companies have introduced digital assistants to the marketplace, and now we can speak with them via our smartphones, computers, or even our home speakers. These digital assistants have become incredibly useful tools, and they can help you do almost anything - from ordering food to making sure your home’s lights stay on.

Augmented Reality

AR is a technology that overlays digital graphics over live video footage. It has been around for a while, but the advent of more powerful computers and an open source video tracking library has helped it take off in recent years.

Capsule Endoscopy

A breakthrough in light emitting electrodes, image sensors, and optical design in the '90s led to capsule endoscopy, which allows doctors to examine the gastrointestinal system without any cuts or scarring. Unlike traditional colonoscopies, which require the patient to lie down, capsule endoscopy can be performed by simply swallowing a small capsule that has a camera on the inside.
