Not all inventions need to be the most technically advanced to be both useful and amazing, as these two products prove, helping make life easier with a simple fix.
1. Shop, lock, and roll
These charging stations (in some retails stores) let shoppers charge their phone while they shop, all in a safe place since the phones are locked away until the owners finished shopping and ready to leave.
2. Take me out to the ball game
Yes, that’s a bowl of fried chicken and fries sitting on top of a cup with a straw through the center. And, yes, it is absolutely amazing. It’s was created for America’s favorite pastime, baseball, but it could work for America’s other favorite pastime, which is smoking up.
3. Less mess
Some Starbucks stores use these clever paper bags with two pockets, one for the bagel and another for the cream cheese, meaning the latter won’t be a greasy mess.
4. Hot stuff
Not everyone likes the same amount of spice, which is why this bottle that allows you to choose the level of spiciness is perfect – especially when you consider that variety is the spice of life.
5. Just a spoonful
There’s nothing worse than forgetting a spoon (or any utensil needed to eat), as a screwdriver or finger isn’t ideal, which is why some geniuses came up with a pop-out spoon that fits in the lid of the food. It is also biodegradable, too, which is the best part.
6. The game
Did you know that you don’t need to flat area to play chess or checkers? You also don’t need to sit, either, as a wall-mounted chess board could be the coolest thing to have on your wall.
We’ve all done it, but there’s no reason not to, especially if more hotels have such a checklists. Keys? Check. Wallet. Check? Genius? Check.
8. Where’s Waldo?
Of course, most people don’t like visiting the dentists, as it can be painful to your mouth and also your wallet. But there is a dentist out there who is trying to make it slightly more enjoyable, which comes in the form a Where’s Waldo? poster above the chair. Looking for Waldo will be even more fun if you’ve sucked on some gas, too.
9. Stub it out
Not only is cigarette smoking bad for you, it’s also pretty bad for the environment, too. The butts end up in everything from gardens to waterways, where the things take years to break down, all while poisoning the environment. That’s why this pouch is a good start to stopping.
10. Green Acres
“Did we park on level 2 or 3?” You’ll never forget where you’ve parked, thanks to parking garages that use name each level with a memorable title, making it easier to find your car.
