You would think that with advancements that we have already made today, we would already see simple things that should have been invented long ago. We have some of the most advanced gadgets and we have already explored different planets, yet the most rudimentary things in our everyday life still need improvement! Take a look at some of the most basic things that should have been invented by now.
1. Tangle Free Headphones
Any way you put or fold your headphones in your pocket or bag, they will always come out tangled as if an expert on boating knots secretly sneaked into your bag and tied them up in the most complicated way possible. There is really no solution unless you psychically tie them yourself with a string every time you finished using them, but who has time for that? This problem is so ubiquitous that I am surprised that it’s still one of the things that should have been invented by now.
2. Air Conditioning on Subway Platforms
If you are from New York, you know how hot subway platforms can get, especially during the summer period. Sometimes it’s takes a while to wait for your train and it gets so hot that you feel like you are in a sauna. Although air conditioning may be a waste of energy, they should still install a couple of them and turn them on during the hottest days of the year.
3. Cure for Acne
I don’t suffer from a severe case of acne but I have always had bumps here and there, and ever since I got that first pimple I always prayed for a cure. That was years ago and there is still no such luck! Hopefully in a couple of years somebody comes up with a magical solution to the most hated skin condition.
4. Cellular Connection Everywhere
Just imagine how much easier it would be to meet up at a train station and not waste another fare just to come out and meet up with your friend, or when you are on a vacation with your family somewhere in the forest, you’ll feel safer knowing that you can always make a call. Just for practicality reasons widespread cellular connection should have been invented by now.
5. Gum That Never Loses Its Flavor
I am not sure if I am always buying the worst type of gum or it’s a problem with every gum product, but almost immediately after putting a brand new piece in my mouth it always loses its flavor. The longest it can hold its flavor is for couple of minutes and after that, it’s as if you are chewing on a piece of rubber. Anybody who succeeds at making long lasting gum will probably make a fortune.
6. Nail Polish That Never Chips
The only way to make sure that your nail polish goes without chipping for days is to get your nails done at a salon, but that could get pricey, which is why someone should invent a nail polish brand that never chips. Hopefully this invention is in the near future and our nail suffering will soon be over.
7. A Folder Machine
There is a washer and a dryer, but I am still waiting for the day companies will have advertisements for a folding machine. How easy and less time consuming would laundry be if we had that invention right now? You never know, it might even make the whole process more enjoyable.
There is always room for improvement and new inventions. If you could have one thing invented what would it be? Let me know in the comments!
