There are obviously a lot of cool things in this world, but there are still some ideas for inventions that should have been made, like, yesterday. I mean, sure, we’ve come a long way even from just when I was younger, but there are still a lot of things out there that can be improved upon, am I right?
As an example: charging our phones. Who has the time to let their dead phone charge for an hour when it dies in the middle of the day? Um, no one. Which is exactly why I’m obsessed with this invention that came from the coolest 18-year-old girl I haven’t met yet. Eesha Khare from Saratoga, California invented a supercapacitor that could possibly one day charge your phone battery in 20 to 30 seconds. Sorry, let me repeat that – 20 to 30 seconds. I need this invention in my life because honestly Candy Crush and Instagram are way too addicting for their own good. Eesha won $50,000 at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair and while her invention isn’t being used for phone batteries yet, it certainly has a lot of potential.
While we’re waiting for this amazing invention to be created, let’s talk about the other ideas for inventions that should be made. Come on, scientists… it’s 2013. Get yourselves together.
Nail Polish That Doesn't Need To DryI love doing my nails. I don't love waiting for my nail polish to dry. Seriously, this needs to be a thing ASAP. Source: ShutterStock
Clothes That Don't Wrinkle Or Get DirtyI can't count the amount of times I've conjured up the perfect outfit in my head, only to find out that all of the clothes I was going to use are either wrinkled beyond belief or need to be washed. This shows me that a) I am a messy person and b) clothes that don't wrinkle or need to be washed need to be invented. Source: ShutterStock
Laptops That Don't Need WIFI To Go On The InternetI would like to be able to get on the Internet without having to connect to WIFI, please. I think everyone would, so, let's get on this. Source: ShutterStock
Hair Product That Makes Your Hair Straight InstantlyWhen I'm not embracing my naturally wavy/curly hair, I'm going against nature to make it straight and silky. This takes forever and is always messed up by the end of the day anyway. Can we just skip the hair straightners and just make a product we can spray into our hair that will instantly make it straight and frizz-free? Thanks. Source: ShutterStock
Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream That Has No Calories Or Sugar, Yet Is Still DeliciousIce cream is hands down the best treat ever (please agree) and so it sucks that the best kind - Ben & Jerry's - comes along with about 1,000 calories (because who really eats only one 1/2 cup?). Can we just get calorie and sugar free ice cream that won't hurt my body and still tastes just as yummy? Source: ShutterStock
The Food Machine From The JetsonsHow much easier would your life be if you could press a button and have the food you want ready in an instant? SO MUCH EASIER. Not to mention happier.
Pens That Don't Run Out Of InkFew things are annoying than reaching for a pen when you really need one, only to find out that it's out of ink. Or running out. Ugh. Never-ending ink needs to be a thing. Source: ShutterStock
Remote Controls That Don't Require BatteriesPicture this: you grab some snacks, get nice and comfy in your bed with your pillows arranged just so and grab the remote to have a TV marathon... and then you realize the remote needs new batteries. Only you don't have any. Night ruined. Can we just have remotes that don't need batteries? Much appreciated. Source: ShutterStock
Instant Crush-Finder-OuterWant to know if your crush likes you back? Use this device and you won't even have to ask! Can you imagine how much better life would be? Source: ShutterStock
The Transporter From Star TrekMy commute involves an hour-long train ride into NYC. I would pay any amount of money to have this transporter be real so I could just magically appear places. Who's with me?
Which of these inventions do you wish were real the most? What other ideas for inventions do you have? What do you think about Eesha’s invention? Tell me in the comments!
