New Invention Ideas

I love solving problems and the more innovative the solution the better. Whether it is something to help a difficult medical condition, a way to help with the issues associated with aging, or a way to extend or enhance the use of electronics (along with many other things), I am on the trail.

So what will science, technology, and creativity be bringing out next? I'll be on the lookout for the new, the innovative, and the cutting-edge. If you are looking for smart products that solve everyday problems, stay tuned to this blog and I'll keep you updated.

Want To Feel Like You Are Showering Outdoors? The Rain Soft Shower Will Do the Job

Want To Make Your Snacking Less Noticeable? Try "Glass" Potato Chips

When you see a bag of Lay's Mango Salsa Flavored Potato Chips you may think that you've seen just about everything when it comes to chips. But you may not have seen Glass Potato Chips. While they look like they might be some glass design concept they are actually made of potatoes -- well, sort of. These chips are more derived from potatoes rather than made of thinly sliced potatoes.

Want To Have Plates That Really Rock? Lava Should Do It

Two designers, Caterina Moretti and Ana Saldana, at the design firm Peca in Guadalajara, Mexico, have come up with LAVA, a set of plates hand carved from volcanic rock. While the style has a decidedly contemporary look, they are meant to harken back to ancient times when making items from cooled lava was just a part of life. Back then the results of a lava flow were used for everything from simple utensils and dishes, to the heads for arrows and spears.

Want Your Eggs To Be Out Of This World? Egg 51 Has Arrived

Want A Better Way To Wash Dishes? The DualWash Is Showing The Way

If there is one thing that most of us would like, aside from finding a genie in a bottle, it is a way to make household chores easier. A group of Turkish designers in association with Bosch and Siemens Hausgeräte GmbH came up with a new kind of dishwasher that they dubbed the dualWash. It is mounted on the wall and doubles as a kitchen cabinet. The really innovative part of the design is that it washes the dishes without water.

Want Some Ice Cream For The Road? Try Pothole Ice Cream

Spring has arrived and for many of us in the northern latitudes that mean one thing -- pothole season has also arrived. Those chasms in the street can mean serious tire damage for some.
