There are a lot of moments when you try to complete a task, looking for something. Most of the times this is boring or at least you’re not really aware of the moment. This moment could also be changed in something fun. Isn’t it the best way to find a situation where you wait for something while feeling excited/thrilled/interested. Here are some inventions trying to follow this course.

Car fireworks

Looking for your car parked somewhere in a parking lot can be fun. If you remember exactly where you parked your car, you’re lucky… but if you don’t, you’ll have a lot of trouble. Wouldn’t it be fun if your car projects an image of fireworks above your car so that you can locate it easily? 3.. 2.. 1.. fire! It’d be not only exciting to wait for it to happen, but also fun to see the fireworks for you and other people.

Fun way to avoid trouble
Or, what about finding an interesting trick that can help you avoid a lot of frustration? You are at a party and you look for your drink out of 20 paper cups. Most of the times you just decide to take a new cup. But you could also personalise your cup, so that it can stand out from others. What if a paper cup has lots of squared cut-off lines around its handle? You can customize your handle as you like. It’d be really fun when you make it with your creativity. I’m sure you won’t forget what you created this way.
