20 Insanely Efficient Gadgets Everyone Wishes Existed

There’s no stopping the human craving for shortcuts nor our desire to get things done in the easiest way possible. Our longing for things that make life easier than before knows no bounds.

Often, it’s said necessity is the mother of all inventions; however, throughout history, laziness has been a major driving factor behind plenty of inventions.

And, whenever some new invention garners widespread recognition, the possibility of the new invention encouraging laziness it always among the very first criticisms it draws. This has been the case from trams, cars, telephones to Internet and social media.

Well, there must be a very thin line between laziness and efficiency, provided laziness doesn’t stop you from getting things done. If you’re lazy, particularly if you’re a genius, you look for the easiest way to do things and that’s exactly what efficiency is all about.

Below are 20 insanely efficient gadgets everyone wishes they existed.

1. Drip-catcher Coffee Mug

    You’ve probably been annoyed countless times over coffee that drips on the table, leaving behind filthy and very hard-to-remove stains. This drip-catcher coffee mug is the perfect solution to this problem. The drops of coffee are collected at the gap just above the bottom, preventing them from staining the furniture.

    2. Pileup Toaster

      This toaster is definitely one for lazy folks. It toasts the slices of bread and as soon as they are toasted, they are gathered into a pile. You know longer have to worry about leaving the bread in your toaster for too long and and burning it!

      3. Disinfecting Towel Dryer

      1

        This idea for a towel is a brilliant one. It will give you a dry and bacteria-free towel. The towel is dried with heat and any lingering bacteria is disinfected with the use of UV technology.

        4. Color-Adapting Pen

        04

          The color-adopting pen is another cool technology everybody is sure to love, bringing the magic wand of Photoshop into real life. With this pen, you can scan any color you want. Then you can write in that color.

          5. Easy-To-Open Bag of Chips

          05

            You don’t need to go the traditional way—opening from the top—with this bag of chips. This bag is very easy to open. You can open it right in the middle and enjoy your chips.

            6. Water Sterilizer for Food

            2

              With this gadget, you are guaranteed absolutely clean and bacteria-free food. Water itself might not guarantee bacteria-free food sometimes. This gadget ensures the water is sterilized and in doing so, also ensures there’s no compromise in edibility of the food.

              7. Cake Cutter and Server

              07

                This cake cutter and server combo is another ingenious product to meet your needs. As the title itself implies, with this tool, you can cut and serve cake in a single stroke.

                8. Dissolvable Soap Package

                8

                  This dissolvable soap package may not be available as of yet on the market, but it’s another product many of us have been hoping for for a long time. You don’t need to open the soap from the package. The package dissolves itself when exposed to water.

                  9. Date Stapler

                  3

                    This one would be particularly handy for offices. You wouldn’t need to staple the pages and write down dates manually if this great tool existed.

                    10. Fountain-Converting Toothbrush

                    10

                      Doesn’t the above picture of toothbrush-fountain look amazing? This toothbrush-fountain isn’t just great to look at but also would be really handy for use as well. You can wash yourself without having to bend much.

                      11. Fry Holder With Ketchup Packet

                      11

                        This fry holder would come very handy particularly while you’re travelling. You can enjoy fries with ketchup wherever you are, whether you’re walking, travelling on a bus or reading at a library.

                        12. Floating Cloud Sofa

                        4

                          This sofa which floats and has the appearance of a cloud, certainly feels heavenly. However, it’s not completely hypothetical either. Giant magnets can be used to make the cloud-like sofa float.

                          13. Self-Opening Milk Container
                          13

                            With this self-opening milk container, you don’t even need to open or cut through the lid of the package. You can pour milk as soon as you’d you like. The weight of the milk opens the lid, and the lid closes automatically when the container is put down.

                            14. iChat

                            14

                              iPhones have never failed to dazzle us with their elegant body and attractive cases to smooth operation and provide ease of use.  This app called iChat, however, extends iPhone to a totally new level. You can do video conferencing with the front camera on iPhone, making communication much more effective.

                              15. Personalized Coffee Machine

                              5

                                This personalized coffee machine, as shown in the picture above, uses hand-print-recognition technology in order to make just the right coffee for each individual.

                                16. Yogurt Container With Lid Serving as Spoon

                                16

                                  You don’t need to search for a separate spoon with this type of yogurt packaging. The yogurt container has a lid which you can use as a spoon. Thus, you can open your yogurt container whenever you want and eat it with ease.

                                  17. Alarm That Needs Workout to Turn Off

                                  17

                                    This alarm would be extremely effective for those of us who set alarms and keep hitting snooze, causing us to wake up hours after the scheduled time. In order to turn off this alarm, you’ll need to do some workouts, which will wake you up more and provide you with some extra exercise. Sounds like an effective alarm to me!

                                    18. Non-Permanent Highlighter

                                    6

                                      This is another dream product many of us must have wished for at times. Highlighters are meant to highlight important things. However what is important can vary with time. With this non-permanent highlighter, you can edit your highlights freely.

                                      19. Printer That Uses Pencil Graphite Powder

                                      19

                                        This is very similar to a non-permanent highlighter. With non-permanent highlighters, you can erase highlights. Meanwhile with this kind of printer, you can even erase printed texts. This would make for a very ecofriendly and efficient printer.

                                        20. Extensible Socket Extensions

                                        7

                                          With all the different kinds of socket extensions, it’s hard to realize we haven’t had anything like pictured above in the market as of yet. These socket extensions allow you to add as many outlets as you need.
