Let's use this thread to post inventions we would really like to see - -but may or may not be practical...

I'll start...

I would like to invent a sign that is part of my cars windows (side and back) ... It would normally be 'off' and not obstruct my vision, but when 'provoked' would allow me to flash a sign at the offending vehicle... It would have stored messages that could be flashed with a single button like:

#1 - "Hey stupid! Hang up and drive!"
#2 - "Your turn signals are still on dumby"
#3 - "Get the heck off my bumper or I'll jamb on my brakes!"
#4 - "I would say 'learn how to drive stupid' but it looks like you already learned how to drive stupid!"

What's your 'invention'?

I'd invent a tool for taking wrinkles and creases out of clothes.

Or invent a female companion.

They're called irons.

:lol:

How many young people today have actually used an iron?... A much lesser percentage than my age group I would bet...

I'm not a young person but I still try to avoid ironing wherever possible - I'll live with the creases!

Once this morning.. I forgot to have Becky's school uniform ironed  and left out last night  like I usually do.. So I had to iron it this morning


Things I would like to  see invented....

Rosie from The Jetsons.. A robot to do all the chores, programmed the way you like it and you do not have to pay her  lol

The device  that goes on to a dog to stop him from barking...well I would love one for a cat.. because my tom cat is  very annoying..

A transporter,  cut out the travelling for hours  ..

A pillow cooler.. I am tired of flipping it over and over.. I wish it would just stay cool

Airline food that actually tasted  like........food !!

The opposite of a microwave...   like say you had just purchased  a  6 pack  or some drinks   that were not exactly cold..  You could place them into this machine and set it for 30 seconds, they come out  ice cold  just as you like it...  

A stupid person zapper ... Like a ray gun.. the second they open their mouth and come out with dumb sentences and trash talk.. you zap them with it, and it drowns out their annoying voices..  They will be too dumb to notice you have done  lol

Windows..... One that doesn't keep doing updates and causing problems

Cures  for diseases that do not hurt or make the patient feel worse..

I'd need to invent my female companion with a male sense of humour methinks.


I'd also invent a door answering/phone-answering robot who can stand/sit talking to people that I can't be bothered talking to..... and they'll think it's me!  Ha! Ha!

BM, there are already cool/chilled pillows, a device to train a dog not to be so barking, and even an "instant" beverage chiller- not by the six pack but rather by the individual drink :) My hubby says there is indeed already a "directional" silencer too- it sends out a disrupting wave to cancel out sound waves- that might work for stupid people :)

Edit- he said it's called a "speech jammer gun".

Your ad hominem connotes your sciolism. Now that is some funny commentary.

years ago (back in the old US ARMY green 'fatigue' uniform days) we were standing in morning formation... The Platoon SGT decided to conduct a surprise inspection... Fatigue uniforms were expected to be starched, with 'sharp creases'

When he came to the guy next to me he saw that the soldiers uniform was absolutely dreadful! nothing but wrinkles - it looked like he had wadded it up while damp and let it dry...

The outraged SGT said: "What the heck is this? What kind of creases are these?"
The soldier replied, "These are summer creases Sgt."
"What the **** are summer creases?"
The soldier shrugged, "Some 'er creases... Some 'er wrinkles"

I would love an invention like this... though mine would be a lot more vulgar. :blush:

Inconsiderate drivers really piss me off.  Why, on a three lane freeway, do people group up and drive the same speed in every lane?  Insanity...

Well... I considered being a bit more 'colorful' in the language... but decided to try and cut down a bit on the road rage, and drive by flipping offs...

Ha ha  @ some er creases  


I cannot stand creases in clothes though..  My husband  would  attempt to leave the house with created Jeans  now and again   ...The odd time if he is rushing our daughter out  to a party or some place,  he would stick creased clothes on here and not think anything of it.. well,  until he passes me in the hall and I spot it  ..And then its  get back  up there and get those ironed.. she is not going out looking like  something that got pulled out of the washer  !!
