2019 has come and is almost gone. We are getting ready to begin a new decade. 20 years into the new millennium, but we still don’t have flying cars or teleportation. Although, we do have cars that drive themselves and mini hovercrafts (aka drones).
Here are some of our favorite inventions that have come about in 2019:
- A talking hearing aid
- WeWalk smart cane that pairs with apps for navigation.
- Virtual Surgery for medical students with Osso VR.
- Fully Recyclable sneakers courtesy of ADIDAS.
- Impossible Burger.
- Oru’s foldable kayak.
- Scotch Flex & Seal Shipping Roll by 3M.
- Draper/Sprout Microplastics-Sensing Autonomous Underwater Vehicle.
- PureCycle Technologies and their innovations on repurposing plastic.

Innovations aside, it’s been an amazing year at Mid County Lanes. To thank you for making 2019 unforgettable, we’re giving our loyal customers a little holiday present. We will be hosting a New Year’s Eve Blast Off Party and we would love to see you there!
There are two types of people: the people that always have extravagant plans for New Years and the ones that never have plans for the holiday until the last minute. If you already have New Year’s Eve plans, then stop in early and join our family celebration from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. Want to ring in the year with an awesome time? We have our Rock ‘n’ Late Night party from 9 p.m. until 1 a.m. Both events will have a buffet and champagne toast. The bar will be open for the entire party. Additionally, each guest will receive a gift card for a free game of bowling or laser tag. You can call ahead to reserve a lane for either party. The price per lane includes lane reservation, shoe rental, glow bowling, music, party favors, and more.
Whether you are the family that lounges around or the family that typically travels, try something new and come celebrate with us. We promise it will be a fun and safe environment that everyone will remember for years to come. Spots are filling up fast, so make sure to contact us at 302-378-0677 to make your reservation now.
We hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season!
