16 Cool Inventions You Didn’t Know You Wanted.

Inventors are always coming up with the latest thing, which eventually becomes obsolete when the next great thing comes along. But have you ever seen something on a commercial, a Fingerhut catalog, or at a store that knocked your socks off? Then you asked yourself why this amazing new thing wasn't invented long ago? As designers and inventors continue to find ways to improve the quality of our lives, we take a look at this collection of complex inventions that offer us a solution to everyday hassles. But before we do that, let's try to imagine what life would be like without any inventions. Yikes! That mental image was awful. Okay, so let's push that thought out of our minds and enjoy this list.

#1. Wouldn't it be cool if you could swim underwater without having to worry about drowning?

The H20 Ninja mask actually lets you breathe underwater! We're serious! It's awesome! Now every girl in the world can get to feel like "The Little Mermaid" and check out what's under the sea without running out of air.

#2. Someone invented a rocking bed to turn our mundane room into the bedroom we always dreamed of.

Who needs a rocking chair when you can have a rocking bed? We've been looking for something like this our whole lives.

#3. The automatic shoe cover is such a life saver for people who are constantly stepping on nasty things.

Not only does this machine add a cover to keep your shoes safe from the elements like rain, but you also don't have to worry about things like stepping on a puddle of mud, dog poop, or who knows what else while you're walking down the street.

#4. This levitating glass will be the ultimate conversation starter at any house party you throw.

If anyone asks how you managed to keep the glass from falling down, you can just wink at them and tell them that the force is with you. Only you'll know the truth behind this nifty invention that's so futuristic.

#5. Read any good books lately? Well, you don't have to walk over to your public library or bookstore.

Now you can head on over to the nearest subway car in Seoul, South Korea. This allows people to read while they commute to work. Sadly, this probably wouldn't last a day in places like New York.
