Don’t you love when a new product comes out that makes big money, and all you can think is “why didn’t I think of that?” Well, here’s 5 more gadgets to make you think that again. These 5 simple, yet amazing gadgets, were invented by engineers, moms, and even kids. It’s hard to believe that their simple ideas could turn into such big successes.
1. Coffee Joulies
This awesome product is a stainless steel bean(s) that you put in your coffee. The bean cools your drink down to just the right temperature, but also keeps it warm for up to 5 hours. How cool is that?! The beans were invented by two childhood friends, who are now mechanical engineers in their 20′s.
2. Jumbo Garden Hands
According to Yahoo! Finance, “Jumbo Garden Hands are essentially giant, serrated garbage can lids with handles that can help you pick up piles of leaves, twigs, grass… in half the time you would with your tiny hands.” I wish I’d known about this along time ago, then my mom wouldn’t have needed my help to do yard work.
3. Undercover Laptop Sleeve
I love this product! It appears to be a simple manila mailing envelope. It doesn’t look like something a laptop would go in; therefore, downplaying the fact that there’s something expensive in it for someone to steal. And, it’s also very durable and padded; giving your the laptop the protection it needs.
4. 10-Minute Zoku Popsicle Maker
This idea is perfect for anyone who wants a summer snack, but doesn’t want to take a long time to make it. It’s simple to use; your pour the juice in that you want, and you can add fruit or milk to make a creamsicle – then put in the freezer for 10 minutes and your popsicle is done. It’s a delicious, healthy treat.
5. S2H Replay Watch
This watch works like frequent flyer miles – only you don’t have to spend or fly more – you just have to exercise more. For every 60 minutes of exercise you complete, you get a reward code that you can redeem at a variety of stores; including Best Buy and Sears. What a great way to motivate people to exercise and stay in shape!
It just takes an idea; nothing to complicated. Just something people will want and use. That’s how these 5 great gadgets came about.
