30+ Borderline Genius Inventions That Will Actually Make Your Life Easier
New inventions get put out into the world every day, but sometimes, they’re kind of pointless. Thankfully, there are also plenty of awesome inventions that could potentially make our lives infinitely more awesome. Below, we’ve compiled 33 of them.
Some of these gadget are still in the early phases of design (or simply exist as concepts in the inventor’s head), but we’re hoping they’ll all be for sale as soon as possible Especially #30- I would totally buy an entire set of those.
1. A clear kayak so you can see the ocean floor.
Why take a glass-bottomed boat ride when you’ve got your own? With a boat like this, you’d never miss a thing going on around you while you’re paddling through the waves.
2. A new way to wheel.
Though we’re certain that these look easier than they actually are, the concept behind these individual foot wheels is pretty awesome. Just make sure to wear a helmet.
3. The ultimate work station.
Perfect for those who are perpetually unorganized, this work station takes everything you need and puts it right in front of you. The best part? It charges your devices.
4. An iPad holder for when you’re lying down.
Because we’ve all experienced the pain of dropping a device on our faces when we were just trying to read or watch TV in bed.
5. The computer that sees for you.
This technology is amazing, and one can only hope that some day, it can be used for TVs and smartphones as well.

8. Sit outside, no matter what the weather.
This comfy glass orb allows you to sit outside while not having to deal with rain, snow, or summertime bugs. However, you will have to deal with a lot of people staring at you.
9. A solar-powered purifier.
On a small scale, this could be used to help campers get their daily supply of H2O while in the wilderness. In the big picture, this could be a game-changer for those who live in impoverished communities without access to fresh water.
10. The heel-stopper.
Never sink into the grass in your stilettos with these awesome little stoppers. They also might help make your sky-high pumps a little more comfortable.

This hose attachment is activated by a sensor that releases water whenever your dog comes by for a drink. Say goodbye to that outdoor water bowl – this looks more fun, anyways.
13. The drone camera that sits on your wrist.
Though it’s only in its conceptual stages, this camera could detach itself from your wrist and use propellers to fly a few feet away to take a picture. In other words, if this actually gets made, we will know the future has truly arrived.
14. The scuba gear of the future.
The Triton is a way for divers to breath easily underwater, without all the pesky nuisance of having to carry around a tank. We wouldn’t want to be the person that had to test this out for the first time.

Shoes piled up on the floor always looks messy, and these shoe hangers utilize the open space in your front hallways quite well.

Because you want to use your kitchen island for your appliances, but you don’t want the entire thing to be covered in ugly outlets.
23. The rugged wheelchair that gets you places.
This wheelchair has an amazing front set of wheels that extends to allow people to get down the stairs safely.
