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 The World's Most Expensive Scoop Of Ice Cream? Take Out A Loan!

There are many people out there to whom ice cream is the ultimate in culinary enjoyment. They are able to discuss the difference between vanilla and French vanilla in exquisite detail. It is these people (and the very rich) who might actually go for the most expensive scoop of ice cream in the world. The first part of the expense is buying a plane ticket to Dubai.

Want An Alternative To A Tie? How About An Unusual Collar Clip?

There are those who say that a button-down collar is the sign of a buttoned-down mind. The tie being similar to a noose around the neck doesn't help that either. Even a cute bolo tie doesn't change the image much. However, Dapper and Swag's Collar Clips can give you an alternative that can seem both casual and dressy at the same time. The designs can range from antlers and cow skulls to anchors and owls.

Want Wine To Be in Your Stars? Try An Astrologically Produced White

If you are looking for the perfect white -- say a nice Sauvignon Blanc -- you want to know that every possible step was taken to ensure the quality and taste. With Loxarel's Cora you can. Biodynamics have been employed in the making of this wine from planting to the finished product. That includes making sure that even the stars and planets were consulted astrologically at each stage in the process.

Want Your Water To Do New Tricks? Get A Swirl Tap

When you turn on the faucet in the bathroom water comes out. It is hard to imagine that the water would ever look any different, but one designer did have that much imagination. Simin Qiu, a product designer in London, was able to envision a water faucet that delivers the goods in a cool lattice pattern by swirling the water in two different directions. So he created the Swirl Faucet.

Want Shoes From The Stars? Wear Meteorites

Some women are totally obsessed with shoes and end up with huge collections of them in every shape and style. How many of them would go for these odd-looking high heels which were designed to resemble meteorites -- or space debris that has fallen to Earth. The idea behind these shoes came from the recent landing of the Philae lander on Comet 67P.

Want To Be Able To Pee Standing Up, Ladies? With Pee Pocket You Can

There is little that women envy men for. But when we are out in the wilderness or faced with disgustingly dirty toilets we really wish we could pee standing up. Sure there are devices out there that we can use, but they tend to be bulky and potentially messy. With The Pee Pocket we can carry it easily and discreetly and dispose of it neatly afterwards. It is the perfect tool to make potty breaks a little less stressful.

Want Cool Multifunctional Furniture? Get A Book

There are times when it would be so handy to have a few extra tables or chairs around the house to use while entertaining or for special occasions. The problem is that all that extra furniture takes up room -- a lot of room. Sure, you can buy stackables, but what if you could just store them on a shelf with your books? With Bookniture the possibility is nearly here.

Want A Pool For Your Home? You Could Hide One In Plain Sight

So you want to install a pool. And you want to install a nice patio for entertaining. The problem is that you only have space for one. Wait! That really isn't a problem with Hidden Water Pools. With a cool bit of tech sleight of hand your pool can be cleverly concealed beneath that dream patio. Sure, it is going to cost you more but there are ways that a pool like this will save you money to help offset the additional costs.

Want To Have Honey On Tap? With The Flow Hive You Can

It is the sort of thing that you would think would be in a cartoon -- a tap in a beehive that you can turn on to get some honey out of it. It isn't a cartoon, nor is it a dream. It is a new invention from Stuart and Cedar Anderson, a father and son team of beekeepers from Australia. The hive is barely inconvenienced by this new spigot that collects the honey without all the expensive equipment and time consuming work currently used.

Want To Enjoy Your Food More? Get A Dog Nose

Woof! It is well known that dogs have a far superior sense of smell to that of humans. There is now a product coming on the market that will help you have more of a canine sense of smell so that you can taste your food more fully. It is called the Olfactic Dog Nose. You soak it in warm water and wear it for about ten minutes before eating, which is fine if you don't mind looking like some strange Goth clown in the restaurant while waiting for your meal.
