The world is full of useful things: paper clips, staplers, the computer I’m typing this on. But human inventiveness has only taken us so far. Here’s a short list of items that would make my life, and perhaps yours, a whole lot better.
1. Self-folding laundry. My husband promises me he’s working on this but the R&D has been stalled for years.
2. A collapsible bike helmet that’s just as safe as the regular kind but would fit inside a purse or computer bag.
3. A Lovey Locator: a microchip or other tracking device that could be implanted in a stuffed teddy or other beloved toy and used to find said lovey whenever it goes missing (which, if your kids are like my kids, is often).
4.) A sunscreen shower: Step in, press a button, and you’re ready for the beach.
5. Decaf coffee that doesn’t make me miss the real thing.
