Innovation is when someone takes an idea that already exists and creates a different version. This can be anything from complex machinery to simple everyday objects. This list of innovative ideas stand out to us as they help improve everyday life. Some of them already exist in certain parts of the world whereas others are concept ideas hoping to go into production. A few of them are even available right here on Awesome Inventions! Our favorite has got to be the giant slide!
Creative things That Improve Everyday Life
Banana skin caution wet floor signs
Fun caution signs shaped like slippery bananas. These signs certainly grab our attention more than the standard ones.
Basket ball hoop over trash can
Trash cans where you can slam dunk your trash. It’s amazing how if you turn something into a game or a challenge, people become much more interested. This small addition probably made a huge difference to how many people put their trash in the actual bin!
Create your own 6-pack machine
Machines where you can pick your own 6-pack. We love this clever idea! It’s great to see something that benefits the customer and was built with them in mind. This is so great for people with family or friends that like different drinks, or even just those who like a bit of variety in their life. This is a big yes from us!
Rechargeable USB batteries
Batteries you can charge via USB. We can’t believe that these aren’t more widely used!

Slides beside stairs
A huge slide instead of using the steps. Great for kids and adults alike! This is also a great place to work out. People can sprint to the top and then slide down and repeat without wasting time stepping down to the bottom!
Green and red parking lights
Car parks that show if a space is free or taken by using red and green lights. Every car park should have genius idea!
Mug coaster that converts cold/heat to charge your device
A coaster that uses hot or cold drinks to charge your device, innovation at its finest!
Earphones that will never tangle! We can’t believe this idea hasn’t taken over the world! Tangled headphones are unbelievably annoying!

Pizza vending machine
A vending machine that bakes fresh pizza. We are super curious to know what the quality of the pizza is actually like. That 2.5 minute cooking time is impressive!
Benches that you can rotate using the handle so you can sit on a dry area if it has rained. One of the best innovative ideas on this list! This is something that people could benefit from everywhere!
Folding bike helmet
A folding bike helmet. A great feature for storing when it’s not in use.
Outlet extension cable
An outlet that is also an extension cable. How handy is this?
USB wall sockets
An outlet that has USB sockets. Many people have these kinds of sockets in their home these days. Who can blame them? They’re so convenient!

Drip catching mug
A mug that catches drips with a simple groove in the middle. So simple yet so genius!
Movie screens in cinema bathrooms
Screens in the toilet cubicles so you don’t miss any of the action while at the movies. Awesome! However, we can imagine the screen gets dirty easily!
Removable silicone brush
A hairbrush with a removable piece to allow easy cleaning. We love simple ideas that take away small hassles in our lives.
Space-saving bike racks
Space saving bike racks that don’t take up any sidewalk when they’re not in use.
Backpack with built-in hoodie
A backpack with a built-in hoodie. What a great concept! It would be cool if it was a detachable hood so that you can decide if you need it based on the weather.
Segway vacuum cleaner
A segway vacuum cleaner to make life easier! This would be great for large spaces! However, we can see people getting carried away on these!
Potato chips lifter
A plastic device that will lift your Potato chips out of the tub.
Ticket machine that accepts plaster bottles as payment
A train ticket machine where you can pay with water bottles. Recycling at its finest! What a great incentive. Also, don’t you just love things where mutual benefits occur?

A water fountain that lets you fill up bottles too.
Solar powered window charger
A solar powered phone charger. Charge your device whilst using renewable energy.
Tile tracking device for keys
This Tile has a tracking device that you sync with an IOS app so if you ever lose your keys you can locate them. Brilliant! What a great way of offering that extra peace of mind that all is not lost if you misplace your keys. Also, if someone takes your keys, you have a chance of retrieving them.
Giant bean bag chairs for cinemas
A movie theater with giant bean bags for chairs. Who wouldn’t want to be super comfy when watching a movie? However, we would struggle to leave, we imagine!
