These designs are cool, and not just because of their aesthetics. They're actually designed to make life easier in some way or another.
Ever get stuck behind a big truck at a stoplight, and you're annoyed because you can't see when the light changes? Well, this would change that. So cool!
This is great because it shows you exactly what's in each kind of drink, which is something I feel like a lot of people (including myself!) don't know. It's so simple, yet so effective.
I love the way places like Denmark have designs that make their cities as bike-friendly as possible. We definitely need to be following suit. Bikes are awesome, after all.
I love this so much, because so many things you charge don't do this already. Sure, your phone will tell you how long it'll take to fully charge, but a pair of headphones or a video game controller won't!
Yeah, that's pretty awesome. It's also awesome that dishwashers are finally realizing that plenty of people use reusable chopsticks, like, all the time. I really wish my dishwasher was like this...
One thing that always bugged me about coloring when I was a kid was how there was always only one "nude" crayon, and it didn't look like my skin at all! I'm glad kids will finally be able to color pictures of themselves.
Owning an alarm clock in general is seriously underrated. Like, not having to rely on your phone for the time (or an alarm) is pretty nice.
But what's even nicer, is this clock, that lets you see the time from your bed without having to turn the whole thing. I think I'm in love...
Living in a city has plenty of pros, but the biggest con is probably all the light pollution. I kind of wish we could take this idea and bring it everywhere, because I hate not being able to see stars!
I'm amazed that no one's thought of this sooner. Or, maybe they have, but no one's bothered to make these kinds of picnic tables widely available. Let's see more of these, please!
This is such a great idea for an airport! Charge your phone quickly and easily, and then just go to your next flight. No cords, no mess, no stress. Love it.
I love this because it makes the dishwasher both fashionable and functional. It doesn't look like a dishwasher, and yet it still shows you when the cycle is done. So genius!
Now this is a public restroom! No cracks in the doors means no one's awkwardly trying to look and see if someone's in there, while the lights show you which stalls are occupied! The person who designed this deserves a raise.
Hopefully, those exit signs will never need to be used. But, the fact that they exist in the first place is pretty awesome. Since smoke rises, people will be down low when looking for a safe way out. I can't believe no one thought to do this sooner!
Now that's what I'm talking about! It takes all the guesswork out of trying to figure out when to eat a mango. I wonder if it would be a good idea for other fruits, too.
I have to say, that's pretty clever. I wonder if all tires do this, or just certain ones (I never look at my tires, so I'd literally never know). Either way, it's pretty handy.
If I were driving a large truck, I'd definitely rather hit that sign than be stuck under that bridge. I almost feel like signs like this should be in more places, because they could really help people out.
I can't get over how subtly genius this is. To be honest, wearing a dress can sometimes suck because the straps never line up with your bra straps. But not if you're wearing this one!
Finally, an elevator that doesn't force you to put your boxes on the floor! It can be pretty tough to put stuff on the ground to press a button, and then try to pick it up again. This elevator knows where it's at, though.
You know how sometimes you want to shop without the employees bothering you, but other times you actually need help and they aren't around? Well, this might actually help with that. Nice.
I love the way this space flows. And the fact that the box office can be straight up hidden from view is so cool! This feels like something straight out of the year 3022.
