The Best Inventions of 2021

When you sit down at your desk sometime in the near future, instead of turning on a monitor or opening your laptop, you may simply don a pair of Lenovo’s ThinkReality A3 Smart Glasses ($1,499). Connect the glasses to a computer or smartphone, and high-definition displays built into the lenses will show as many as five different virtual desktops. As you move your head to view the different desktops floating in front of you, you can continue multitasking between Excel spreadsheets or Word documents as you normally would using a standard keyboard, track pad or mouse, all while streaming a Spotify playlist through the headset’s built-in speakers. Connect the specs to the Moto G100 phone (it doesn’t yet support other products) to take the experience on the go, expanding their functionality. —Jason Cipriani
