- Things that really do need to be invented.
Well, I’ve already had the idea but not invented it as such… But when I had to drive round the Crook area of Sheffield when my GF was living there, I frequently found I’d get to the bottom of a steep hill, hit a T-junction and be unable to lean forward to see round walls / pedestrians etc, due to the seatbelt locking up.
So please feel free to nick the idea and invent a button which over-rides the pendulum, seatbelt locking system, ta.Posted 6 years agosamuriMember
Proper auto cars.
In fact, my idea is better than that. The roads would essentially become a rail type link. You’d drive to the end of your street and then when you join the main carriageway, the master computer takes over your car, you’ve already told it where you’re going. Once you reach another car, you form a type of chain, nose to tail. Cars can be removed and added at the appropriate places but ultimately, you just sit there reading a book or more likely, watching some bilge on TV while the master computer gets you all to your place of work.
From the day the system is activated there will be no road deaths. Cyberdyne systems 101 drive with a perfect record.
On August 22nd, 2024, Cyberdyne system 101 becomes self aware and drives everyone into the sea.Posted 6 years ago
Dwarf cows (maybe, say, labrador sized, so that each home could have one in their garden, keeping the grass short and providing about a pint of milk a day or so)
Great idea, it would eat the grass and provide milk,for your porridge for example. We could name it after some combination of ‘grass’ and ‘oats’.!Posted 6 years agooliverd1981Member

Side facing cameras in the front bumper?

How about clean efficient integrated public transport, more working from home, flexible hours and all the other things that would stop us being a nation of 1 to a car bumper to bumper commuters?
How about some kind of electronic system to enable everybody to vote on the running of the country rendering political parties and MP’s obsoletePosted 6 years agomolgripsSubscriber
A way of sending video and audio of yourself to meetings or a workplace so you don’t have to actually schlep across the country to attend.
Wait, what? It already exists? Then why don’t people use it?! Imagine the hassle it’d save, and the CO2 emissions too!

I posted this the other day. A very good idea, but a very dangerous one.Posted 6 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
Paint rollers – grrrrr!
I hate that so much that I don’t clean them. Wrap them in cling film after use and they stay fresh, so if you have a big decorating job on you can keep going back to them and only clean once. Or frankly, if you’ve spent a week decorating using one white roller the whole time, then just bin it. The cost is nothing compared to the cost of the paint and the pita factor of cleaning them.Posted 6 years ago
