20+ Things We Could Only Dream of, and Now They’ve Been Invented

Sometimes you think that it would be nice to have something new/useful/unbelievable and then you find out that this thing has actually already been invented. For example, a jacket that is good for a cool fall day and the freezing cold. And how happy drivers would be if there were speed bumps that they could cross without shaking. All of these things already exist.

We at Bright Side found 24 cool doodads which will make you say only one word, “WOW!”

1. A jacket for all seasons by Xiaomi. It can heat up to 122°F and would be very handy in the freezing cold.

2. This traffic light on the sidewalk is for pedestrians on their cell phones.

3. A sofa with a built-in charging spot

4. A device to dry umbrellas before going inside

5. 2-sided screen

6. Sunlight activated color-changing boots

7. A robot that keeps a plant alive

This is a robot that walks around and moves to the appropriate lighting for its plant. It also does a little “I need water!” dance when it senses the plant is low on water.

8. This gaming PC with an integrated coffee machine

9. This TV set blends with the interior.

10. These batteries have a USB port so you can charge them.

11. A fire exit elevator on the outside of a building

12. This lemon came with a mesh wrap so the seeds don’t fall into your food when you squeeze it.

13. This airport waiting area has a slide.

14. An automatic protector on a door (no scratches anymore)

15. This pen has a built-in periodic table.

16. This stop sign can be folded and locked.

17. Filled with non-Newtonian fluid, these speed bumps behave like a fluid when a car is under the speed limit, and the driver perceives barely a bump. If the vehicle exceeds the speed limit, the fluid hardens and become a speed bump.

18. A chair in an elevator in Japan doubles as a toilet in case you’re trapped during a power outage.

19. A third arm for very busy people

20. This Graphene Jacket is made of an innovative material that will protect you from cold and heat.

21. These wheels move sideways and can be very helpful for those who have problems with parking.

22. These are contact lenses with telescopic enlargement which triples your vision sharpness. You can see the surface of the Moon with them.

23. These metro seats can change direction.

24. This is a pill camera that needs to be swallowed for a digital endoscopy.
