While some geniuses are trying to take people to Mars or transfer their minds into machines, others are developing ideas that focus on bettering our earthly everyday, mundane lives. But it doesn’t mean they’re less worthy, right?
Clever Ideas You’ll Be Wowed By!
Keep scrolling for a compiled list of awesome inventions and designs you didn’t know you needed. They’re as clever as they’re simple, yet effective.
1. A Swing Designed For A Parent & Child To Swing Together
As a parent I think this idea is absolutely ingenious! Putting a young child on a swing for that first time is always a slightly terrifying experience. The parents usually end up with mild palpitations whilst their child who can’t even walk yet is pushed just far enough out of reach that if they can’t catch them if they fall. I remember it well – Tell me where this device is so I can promote it to the masses!
2. Shopping Carts With Calculators Attached
How perfect is this? No more guesstimating your shopping total as you walk around the store – add it up accurately and know you can splash out on that extra pack of rolos in the checkout queue.
3. Conveniently Placed Elevator Call Buttons
Whilst I like this idea I just know it wouldn’t be that simple. Not my favourite item on this list but one I think many people will like.
4. Shops That Show Staff If You’d Like Help Or Not
In the UK I can’t imagine these being used very much – however in America or Japan I can imagine these being very popular with the masses.
5. Pill Bottle Tells You When You Last Opened It
Imagine how much this would help people with dementia or short term memory issues.
6. Mountain Finding Device In Switzerland
I wonder how effective this really was – a bit like these advertising fails
7. Traffic Lights In Ukraine
How brilliant are these! I imagine you would get complaints from the neighbours if you installed them in a residential area – but for motorway roundabouts these would be perfect!
8. Accessibility Matts On The Beach – For Wheelchair & Stroller Users
Making the beaches accessible for all (not just wheelchair users – prams and those who have difficulty walking on uneven surfaces will love this invention.
9. UPS Trucks use Natural Lighting
Simple but effective ideas like this are what will help save the planet – I’m convinced.
10. A Cone Of Silence So You Have Somewhere Silent To Take Phone Calls
