Every day we unintentionally struggle with daily tasks or chores but don’t give a second thought to them. Things like getting the last bit of toothpaste out of the tube or getting the curtains to properly close.
Thanks to people with inventive minds, they analyze everything and try to find efficient ways of dealing with a problem. Here are 15 of the best new inventions that will have you scratching your head and asking, “why didn’t I think of that?”
1) Buckle-free belt
Get the comfort of wearing a belt without the annoying buckle digging into your skin when sitting down. It’s also made from elastic so it stretches and expands when needed. Check it out on Amazon.
2) Digital counting coin bank
Add coins to your bank and always have a running tally of your change. This is also great for kids to learn the value of money and help them watch their savings grow. Check it out on Amazon.
3) Automatic unfolding sunglasses
With the flick of a wrist, these sunglasses fold and unfold automatically and are easy to carry and store.
4) Nightlight with portable glowing balls
This GLO nightlight has glow in the dark balls that children can hold while sleeping or even carry with them.
5) Heat-sensitive illuminated showerhead
Never enter a cold or overly hot shower again. This heat-sensitive showerhead changes color depending on the water temperature. It also doesn’t need batteries and is powered by the water flow.
6) Jibo the social robot
Unlike other electronic assistants like Google Home or Amazon Alexa, Jibo is the first social robot with expressive movements and responses.
7) Double-sided lamp
A hotel offers double-sided lamps for guests that want to do some reading while others sleep.
When you think about it, keyboards really haven’t changed since the days of typewriters. The first typewriter with a QUERTY keyboard was invented in 1873 and even today’s computer keyboards still have the same linear design. This butterfly designed keyboard allows easier reach and an ergonomic design.
9) Mini smartphone charger
Do you have only 5% left on your smartphone and need to make an important phone call? While only a concept product, the ability to recharge your phone using disposable Mini Power rechargers in 2, 4, and 6-hour configurations would be a product many people would purchase.
10) Overlapping curtains
While it’s possible to properly close curtains, it often takes some effort to ensure no sunlight passes through. These curtains have overlapping tracks to ensure curtains are always properly closed.
11) Smart bed
The Sleep Number 360 Smart Bed senses how you sleep throughout the night and consistently makes changes to the firmness, comfort, and support of the mattress. It even heats your bed if needed to give you a perfect night’s sleep.
12) Heated mirrors
While most cars have heated outside mirrors, this heated mirror prevents your bathroom mirrors from fogging up after a shower.
13) Two-way toothpaste
Some people are obsessed with getting the last bit of toothpaste out of the tube. This concept product may look odd but makes perfect sense. New inventions like this one would definitely ensure any remaining toothpaste is squeezed out.
14) Electric portable mini iron
We expect hotel rooms to have steam irons but sometimes they’re missing or don’t even work. This mini iron is so tiny, it can fit nearly anywhere.
15) Multifunctional bed
This is one bed you may never want to get up from. It has an audio player, USB chargers, laptop stand, and even a massage chair. If you have the means, I highly recommend it.
It’s amazing how many of these products you never thought you needed until now! Please share these new inventions with your friends and family.
