- Things you wish had really been invented
A incredibly complex system of inter-vehicle telemetry where people can ‘ding’ a bad driver. Three dings in a day and he’s restricted to 30mph for the rest of the day. Having lights on the roof to show how many dings you have allocated in any particular day would make it a lot more fun and would make solving traffic accidents a lot easier. Each individual can only ding others say, three times in one day and can only ding another person once. Cyclists get an infinate number of dings to allocate.Posted 9 years agouser-removedMember
Driving invention – please feel free to nick this idea and good luck with the H&S nazis.
A dash mounted button which ‘unlocks’ or disengages the seatbelt ratchet. You know when you get to a T junction at the bottom of a steep hill, and you need to lean forward to see what’s coming – but you can’t, because the bl00dy seatbelt locks up?
I would say steering wheel mounted, but you might accidentally press it during a crash….
Driving invention 2.
No more airbags. Instead, if you crash, a foot long metal spike shoots out of the steering column. Everyone drives slowly, accidents a thing of the past. Genius.Posted 9 years agoStonerSubscriber
A netbook with a slide out slim smart phone like a razr (but less rubbish). The phone can piggy back the battery when docked and provides a HDSPA internet connection to the netbook either docked or in the pocket via BT, seamless skype video calling from phone or netbook webcam, uses just one sim card.Posted 9 years agomolgripsSubscriber
A machine that makes sandiwches. You load it with bread, butter, cheese, ham, chocolate spread etc which it keeps refrigerated. Then you just come down, select a filling and out pops a sandwich.
Stoner – that really neccessary? Your phone can stay in your pocket/jacket unobtrusively anyway when you are using it connected to your laptop, so what advantage would there be being able to stuff the phone in the laptop?Posted 9 years agomolgripsSubscriber
a Millenium Falcon will do; that seemed quite nippy.
That only travelled at light speed. Still pathetic for interstellar distances. It’d still take five years to get to the very nearest star at that rate, never mind cross the Galaxy (as he suggests in the film 🙂 )Posted 9 years ago
Looks like it can do nowhere near the speed of light, but it can travel through hyperspace faster than other shipos because of it’s space/time warping properties.Posted 9 years ago
Harry Potter. I wish I’d thought of wizard kid novels
there were wizard kid novels around long before Harry potter and there were childrens books around that are way better than Harry Potter long before JK was even born, it’s just she went to a publisher with a magnificent marketing team.Posted 9 years agostumpy01Member
HOVERBOARD – I always wanted one. Well, after I saw BTTF II.
While at uni I thought up a hand drying system that used air knives to dry your hands (while on work placement at a place that used air knives to dry cans)…..kept meaning to build some prototypes etc. but was always to busy/lazy/forgot about it…….then a couple of years ago was reading the times and see that Dyson has made one and he reckons the globabl market for hand dryers is £65M……oh bugger.Posted 9 years ago
