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.

Need This New Invention? A Cup Holder For Your Umbrella

Whether you call them umbrellas, brollies, or bumbershoots, this canopy to protect us from the rain has one significant problem -- it uses up one of our hands. This means that you have to choose between holding on to your cuppa joe or your cell phone, or your glass of beer and your sweetie's hand. Worry not! The answer is on the way! It is called Morella and it is a cup holder that attaches to the handle of your umbrella.

Need This New Invention? Bloody Bath Mat

April Fool's Day is not far off and the time for preparing your practical jokes for the day is afoot. This way cool bathmat may be just the thing to freak out your significant other or houseguests. While they are in the shower you just sneak in and switch out that boring plain white bathmat with the Bloody Bathmat -- one covered with bloody footprints and directional blood spatter. Then you just wait for the screams.

Need This New Innovation? Eyelash Jewelry

Eyelash jewelry is kinds creepy and at the same time it is totally cool. It is a totally creative way to change standard false eyelashes into a major fashion statement. It isn't the sort of thing you would wear to work or church, but great for leisure time get-togethers and parties. They are bound to be a conversation starter and people won't be able to take their eyes off yours.

Need This New Innovation? Lace Packing Tape

Lace packing tape may not be an innovation that is ground-breaking or life-altering and we could go on very well without it, but it is one of those little innovations that make life just a little more beautiful and fun. Why keep sending plain brown paper packages when you can dress them up and add just a touch of sexy to them? And just because it is called packing tape why should you stop there?

Need This New Innovation? Toilet Paper Tree

For years the way everyone stored extra toilet paper by hiding it in one way or another. Who were we kidding? Why were we ever being modest in the least modest room in the house? Now you can not only store your extra loo rolls out in plain sight -- and even be making a design statement with them. The Toilet Paper Tree is a new way to store your extra tissue and hearkens back to the days of your misspent youth when you put toilet paper in trees for a different reason.

Need This New Invention? Shoes For Shoveling Snow

If there is one chore that most people really hate in the winter it is shoveling snow. If only there was a way to shovel the walks as easily as walking. Well, apparently some people think that there is! Enter the Shoe Shovel. Instead of breaking your back you can work out your thighs and glutes by shoving the snow out of the way.  So simple, so easy, so . . . unreal.

Need This New Innovation? A Cardboard Cathedral

Three years ago, on February 22, 2011, a devastating earthquake hit Christchurch, New Zealand, causing massive damage to the city center. The iconic Anglican church was designed to look like the Christ Church in Oxford, England and had survived 130 years and several other earthquakes. There was no way to have services in the remains. A new place had to be found while the old cathedral was rebuilt. The answer was a "temporary" structure made of cardboard.

Need This New Innovation? Sustainable Garden At The Airport

There are many places that you might expect to find a vegetable garden these days, from schools to rooftops. No longer are they limited to farms and backyards. Even with all of these new places opening up, it is still very odd to think of a garden at a busy airport. Not just a garden -- a vertical, aeroponic garden full of fresh vegetables that supply the restaurants inside Chicago O'Hare International Airport.

Need This New Invention? Fantasy Coffins As Art

The art of making special, beautiful coffins is many hundreds of years old -- from the sarcophagi of ancient Egyptians to the figurative caskets for the chiefs and priests of the Ga people in Africa. Over the past few decades this has evolved into an amazing art form practiced by artists in Ghana. You can be buried in pretty much any kind of coffin you choose -- from a Mercedes, to a Coke bottle, to a chicken.

Need This New Invention? T-Shirt Imprinted With Tide-Infused Ink

Manufacturers actually adding Tide to clothing ahead of time is not exactly a go-to thought. Since it is a gimmick aimed at the chronically laundry-challenged -- college students -- it makes a lot more sense. The t-shirts come with a variety of scenes of mothers crying over the enormous pile of laundry their kids have brought home for them to do was created by Leo Burnett, the company's ad agency in Poland.
