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 Play Chess In The Round?

You and a couple of friends are hanging out together and you decide that you want to play a board game. All three of you are in the mood for a rousing (?) game of chess but who has to sit out on deck for a few hours? What to do? Well, odd as it seems all you need to do is get this intriguing Three Player Circular Chess set. The game play manages to retain all of the rules and strategies of classic chess.

Want To Pick Your Own Food In The City?

For some people food can be a scarce commodity. Yet even in the cities there is food all around us that goes uneaten every year. A new website called Falling Fruits has been set up to help map the places where these foods are in public places and can be legally picked and consumed. It started out as a venture by Ethan Welty, a University of Colorado graduate student, to keep track of these foods for locals in Boulder, Colorado, and is now worldwide.

Want A Natural Deodorant You Make Youself?

You know the drill -- checking your pits before you leave the house and if you don't pass out from the stench you figure you are probably good to go. Of course you plaster on some deodorant to prevent such blackouts, but how many chemicals are you getting into each time you do that? Worse -- what if you have a serious sensitivity to those chemicals. Well, you can get this cool Make Your Own Deodorant Kit.

Want A New Way To Know When Your Food Has Expired?

There are times when expiration dates can be confusing and inaccurate. Sometimes they say "sell by" but don't tell you how long you have left. Others give you just a date and no explanation of what it means. Many foods last beyond the date. So the time may have come for Bump Mark. It is a way of telling if your package of food is still fresh without having to decipher the date. This way a label changes and becomes bumpy as the food ages.

Want To Use A Bicycle As A Blood Centrifuge?

Using medical equipment that we consider standard in the Western World can be difficult in Third World Countries where things like electricity are in short supply. Designer Jack Trew has created a simple blood centrifuge that works by being attached to the spoke of a bicycle wheel -- something that can be found most of the world over. The Spokefuge is currently one of the finalists for the James Dyson Award and the prize of $45,000.

Want To Play With The Walking Dead This Halloween?

There are a number of reasons that you may choose to stay in this Halloween, from bad weather to a touch of a cold. You can still have a good time though. Just plan a simple buffet of body parts with barbecue sauce, some Klingon blood wine, and some pistachio pudding (pus). Put The Monster Mash on the stereo. With just the family or a few close friends you can get out The Walking Dead Monopoly and have a totally creepy and scary time. Winner gets the Gummy Cockroach.

Want To Swing Through A Waterfall?

For most of us one of the great joys of childhood was spending time in a swing. There was that feeling of flying as we swung forward and that moment of weightlessness as we reached the back of the arc that gave us thrills. We are older now and the swing is not quite the enchantment -- that is unless you add water. Enter the Waterfall Swing.

Want To Mark Wedding Anniversaries With Aging Wines?

When it comes to wedding presents, I like to get away from the bride's list and find something more unusual and creative to give the happy couple. I prefer to do the same sort of thing for anniversary gifts. This Anniversary Wine Box is just that sort of gift. It is fun, unique, and you can personalize it with your own messages of glad tidings. And the couple will remember you fondly on their anniversary for years.

Want To Turn Your Gift Wrap Into Animals?

There is something extra special about gifts that are wrapped so beautifully that you hesitate to tear into them. I have always envied people with the skill and talent to be able to do that. Now you can get a kit to help you turn your gifts into fun animals -- especially for the kids or your animal loving family and friends. This Animal Gift Wrap Kit we can all look amazingly talented and brilliant.

Want This Way Cool Cold Drip Coffee Maker?

If there is one thing that the people of this country are addicted to (legally) it is the brew of the bean -- coffee.

Search no more. This Yama Glass Cold Drip Coffee Maker not only makes an excellent, low-acid cuppa Joe, but is also a great way to dress up a special corner of your kitchen.
