Necessity is the mother of invention, but when do you feel necessity? I always jot down something when I feel necessity or inconvenience and try to think of a fun way to solve it, which is kind of my hobby. And here are the ideas I found for some situations.
Almost every time I have a “It’d-be-much-better-if-there-were-…” moment, I find myself pretty lazy. For example: when I have to clean up the books on my desk, I don’t want to stand up from the chair to carry the books all the way to the bookshelf. So I thought of a way to put the books on the shelf by staying seated on my chair.
Put this bookshelf right next to your desk. By sliding the colored tag, you can specify which room a book goes into. Just slide a book down the slope after you read a book.
Black or White or Mixed
When I wanted white and black pepper mixed on my dish at dinner I came up with a pepper mill to grind only once for the mixed pepper. You can use this pepper mill with one hand and choose black, white or mixed by choosing the colors of the handles. You can also save some space for a little salt container you can put on top of the mill.
When I’m sleeping I don’t want to open my eyes just to check out how much more time is left till the alarm goes off. Here’s an alarm clock with ears that move closer to each other with time. Touch the triangles and it tells you how much time there is left until the set time. Although you cannot know the exact time, you can feel how much more you can sleep.
