We stay in places and countries most people can only dream about, so while on the road we tell you what it’s like. If we’re not travelling for a while, we live like locals, observe our surroundings and check out the news. We also take the piss- A LOT...
Kids want very few things in life. They want to be invisible and have a cool treehouse. Now envision the Invisible Tree Hotel. Swedish firm Tham & Videgard Hansson conceptualized and created this amazing (almost) invisible tree house for a hotel in northern Sweden. It's a breath-taking illusion.
3. Broom Groomer: For All The Annoying Dust Bunnies
Sweeping just isn't very efficient after the bristles get tangled with hairs and dust bunnies. That's why the Broom Groomer (envisioned by the people at Quirky) is a terrific invention that helps you clean the bristles right on your dustpan.
Admit it. You've dropped crumbs into your keyboard way too many times to remember. And every time you spill a drink? You hope and pray your computer keyboard doesn't get wet. This washable keyboard is the probably the best friend of anyone who works at an office, or any recluse who lives on the Internet all day. (They need keyboards too.)
If you've ever walked in the streets of NYC, you know that dog droppings are a problem. This brilliant invention would totally help with doggy clean up. Nobody wants to carry Fido's droppings on their walk, so why not make it easier for dog owners?
It's amazing how new this invention is (patented in 2011)! People with long hair can attest that washing your hair in the winter is no fun! Going outside with wet hair is uncomfortable and very cold. So inventing a device that is like a towel and hairbrush in one? Amazing.
Have you ever wished that you could lock and unlock your apartment door with your cellphone? The future is now.

You'd give this invention to your little brother, but it's really a gift for dad. Now he doesn't have to mow the lawn, and the rambunctious kids mow the grass while playing outside. You kill two birds with one stone.
You may laugh at the idea at first glance, but how cool would this be? Imagine you're out camping in the wilderness, and you need to get something outside your tent. Not a problem. You're nice and cozy with the sleeping bag pants.
