20 gadgets that make life simpler
Every day, we come up against annoying things that no one has ever found a way to resolve which works all the time. But in some cases, thanks to human ingenuity we are moving towards this. Here are 20 inventions which are guaranteed to make your life a little bit more simple.
The pre-heated knife
The Wi-Fi pen
The notice board without pins
Steel cooling tablets
These tablets are made of solid stainless steel, which is the same material used to make most medical and dental tools as well as kitchen utensils. They therefore don’t deposit anything in the water as you cool it down.
The jelly cloth for cleaning hard-to-reach places
The socket cover shaped like a cat for your phone
Like plasticine, this stuff takes any shape. Then it dries, hardens and remains stuck to any surface. It can therefore help to fix or improve a whole number of objects used around the house.
Designers Roberto de Luca and Antonio Scarponi have developed a suitcase design which turns into a ’personal space’ with an area of 4 metres squared, which includes a bed, table, chair, cupboard, light and privacy screen.
A rocking chair for charging your iPhone or iPad
Swiss company Micasa Lab has come up with an environmentally friendly way to charge your iPhone: the movement of this rocking chair generates energy which charges your telephone. You have to rock back and forth in the seat for around three hours to charge your device.
The Moveo fold-out electric scooter
The magnetic egg which makes a nest from paper clips
The device which sorts sweets by colour
The mask which controls dreams
Inside the mask there are light emitting diodes. The light up in a defined order, creating patterns before your eyes. This can help to determine the nature of your rest.
The cup which squeezes tea bags itself
This cheerful plastic shape for cooking a fried egg
The five-tipped pen for writing music
The plastic box with a timer
This will help you combat habits — it doesn’t open for a defined amount of time typed in to the timer on the lid.
The flower pot which never falls over
The multi-function cooking utensil
