18 Inventions That Are Nothing Short Of Brilliant

I'm always on the lookout for cool inventions, especially when they make my life easier. After all, isn't that what we're all after, huh?

So if you're like me, I bet you're going to love what I'm about to show you here. Check it out, and let me know which one is your favorite. Go!

1. These Glow-In-The-Dark Stickers

I don't know if you've ever had the power go out in your house, but it can be a surprise. So these glow-in-the-dark stickers that you can put on your door handles can guide you around. What a great idea, huh?

2. These Empanadas

Isn't it annoying when you order a bunch of empanadas only you don't know which one is which? Shops have now started putting stamps on them, so you don't eat a meat one when you're a vegetarian, for example. Right on!

3. This Skateboard Rack

Bike racks are all cool and whatnot, but what do you do when you're a skateboarder and want to visit a library? Well, this one here set up a rack where you can lock your skateboard up, and I think it's super neat.

4. These Winter Boots

Winter presents all sorts of challenges, especially when it comes to walking on snow or ice. So it's cool to see that a company invented these boots that come with cleats to facilitate walking in icy conditions.

5. This Dishwasher Feature

If you eat a lot of noodles, I bet your chopsticks get quite dirty, no? So wouldn't it be great if you could wash them in the dishwasher without them rolling around everywhere? This one has a special slot just for chopsticks.

6. This Pop-Up In Gmail

Have you ever written an email in Gmail and forgotten to attach something? Well, now you will get a pop-up that will remind you that something is missing before you send it. That's a neat feature, eh?

7. This Plastic Pizza Bag

It's always awkward to carry that pizza box, especially when traveling far. So, this company provided a bag that can accommodate the odd shape of the box, and I totally dig that. All pizza places should do this.

8. This Toaster Feature

This toaster looks quite typical, no? Well, except for one cool feature. Notice that button that says "a bit more?" That's so cute, hee-hee. I don't know about you, but I usually need just a bit more toasting time, too.

9. This Speedbump Bike Bypass

Check this out. What do you see on the road here? Well, it's an actual speedbump bypass that people on the bikes can use, so they don't ride over the bump. Don't you think that's useful, huh?

10. These Childproof Batteries

Kids are very curious, and they often like to lick things or put them in their mouths. So this battery company put a coating on their product that tastes bitter. That way, kids won't like it when they try to lick it.

11. This Avocado Station

Some people have a hard time figuring out the ripeness of avocados. I've become a master at that. But if you're not, then this supermarket sorts them according to the ripeness, and I really like that idea.

12. This Restaurant Bill

I don't know about you, but I'm not that great at math, ha, ha. So when it comes to dividing a restaurant bill with friends, I really do appreciate this bill breakdown here. I wish all establishments did this, too.

13. This Stadium Scoreboard

If you've ever been to a big game and had a hard time watching the screen on the sides, you'll appreciate this. Now, everybody can enjoy watching the play no matter where they sit. Bravo! I love this.

14. This Shopping Cart

What's different about this shopping cart? As it turns out, it's some sort of "Pay-as-You-Fill" idea. As soon as you put an item inside, it charges your card. Then all you need to do is walk out of the store and take stuff to your car. Wow!

15. This USB Plug

Wouldn't it be awesome if all USB plugs were designed to fit any way you insert them? Oh, yeah! Some companies are already making them that way, and I like what I see here. Why can't they all be like that?

16. This Upside Down Plug

Speaking of plugs, check out this one here. Somebody very cleverly designed it in a way where you can plug things in upside down so as not to damage the cord. Now, isn't this a genius design?

17. This Lipstick

This one is for the ladies out there who love their lipsticks, hee-hee. Check out this one here. It comes with a secret compartment that contains some lip gloss to go along with the lip shade. I love this idea here.

18. This Mustard Jar

Most condiments that we buy in a jar end up getting thrown out. So this mustard company packaged theirs in a cool mug that you can reuse after you finish the mustard. Oh, how sweet is that?

It's cool to see that companies are taking into account what people really want.

I don't know about you, but I wish we would see more user-friendly inventions like these ones here. Have you stumbled upon something lately that really impressed you? Share it with us below.
