- A kettle which monitors blood pressure
- TV ‘buddies’ to allow people to remotely share the experience of watching a programme
- A ‘cuddle cushion’ which would allow relatives being able to send each other cuddles
- A smart water bottle which would prompt people to drink more to prevent dehydration
- Accessible and modern ‘Boris Scooters’ (or Segways) in towns and cities to help people with mild mobility impairments get around
- The development of national ‘trusted information’ systems for online and telephone transactions to reduce the risk of scams
