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 See It Rain Inside An Airport?

Kinetic Rain is an amazing and mesmerizing moving sculpture that has been set up in Terminal 1 of Singapore's Changi Airport. The sculpture was created for and was installed as a part of the terminal's refurbishment by the German design firm Art+Com.

Want Honey From Bees Being Raised On New York City Rooftops?

The interest in home farming, or urban farming, has been spreading across the country. In New York City rooftops are becoming gardens, chicken coops -- and even the home of thriving bee hives. The bees gather nectar from blossoms and plants around the city and transform it into liquid gold with their alchemy. You can try some of this precious product with this Manhattan Rooftop Honey Flight.

Want To Serve Your Tea On A Topographical Tray?

There are all sorts of serving trays out there, but none are quite as unusual as the Confluence Tray. This tray takes me back to 8th grade science class when we learned how to make a topographical map. In that case it was the fictional Mount Blobberdink. In this case you can name all of the mountains and valleys yourself. Perhaps the plateau upon which you rest your tea pot could be Mount Darjeeling.

There are times when it would be handy to be able to warn your coworkers or boss away -- especially before you've had your coffee.

Want A Red Nose Handy Just In Case?

An Emergency Clown Nose -- it is the sort of thing that everyone should have on hand in their medicine cabinet for those times when nothing else will do. Seriously. After all laughter is said to be the best medicine and it is. This rosy little ball, when placed on the caregiver's nose and used according to directions is very likely to cause waves of laughter especially in small children.

Want A Spring Toy That Moves Like Magic But Doesn't Slink?

We have all known the joy of playing with a simple spring through the Slinky, but that isn't the only spring out there that is amazing and magical to goof around with. There is also the Toroflex Kinetic Spring Toy. While this spring can't walk downstairs alone or in pairs, it can do a bit of moving and climbing under the right conditions, When not in use it even stores flat.

Want To Keep A Bit Of Your "Health Tonic" In A Steampunk Flask?

When you are out to take the old airship for a spin it is nice to have a little something something on hand to nip at once in awhile. So when you do strap on the goggles and get ready to go you may want to make sure you fill up this way cool Capt. Jules' Everlasting Steampunk Flask. That way you will be well packed and stay well hydrated throughout your sojourn.

Want An Instruction Manual For When You Become A Zombie?

There are some great books out there with plenty of advice on how to stay safe during a zombie apocalypse, but what about the worst case scenario. That would mean that you have also become a zombie now -- but what is it that zombies do besides lumbering about? That is why you need help like the kind you can get from So Now You're a Zombie: A Handbook for the Newly Undead.

Want To Scrub Your Nails With An Actual "Nail" Brush?

Being very literal can lead to some great puns and if there is one thing I love it is pun a goo pun. That is why I was immediately drawn to this Nail Brush made from an actual nail. It is just the sort of cool design that is just right for the macho tool guy who feels out of place using one of the dainty little plastic brushes that women buy for the family.

Want Your Grog Of Choice In A Cool Beer Stein?

There are just times you want to channel your inner German -- or at least pretend you are one of the guys on Hogan's Heroes slipping into the Hoffbrau in Hammelburg to trade information with the Resistance. Either way having a stein for quenching your thirst with your favorite canned beverage is a great idea. Why a can? Because this particular stein is Das Can-in-Stein -- not a real stein, but an incredible simulation.
