15 Genius New Inventions That Make the World a Better Place

Changing lives in brilliant ways


Genius new inventions from around the world

They say necessity is the mother of invention - that the primary driving force for all new creations is some sort of need. Each of these 15 brilliant new inventions answers a different human need - such as clean water or sanitation - or an environmental necessity. To make them, gifted designers identified an important issue, came up with an innovative solution - and then put the wheels in motion to create some truly inspirational inventions. 

1. THE DINING SET FOR DEMENTIA PATIENTS

Eatwell is an 8-piece dining set that fosters mealtime independence for sufferers of dementia. The bowls have slanted bottoms for easy scooping and bright blue interiors to help users easily identify food. The spoons hug the side of the dinnerware making collecting food easier and preventing spillage, and all handles allow for easy gripping and stability.

4. THE PATCH THAT MAKES YOU INVISIBLE TO MOSQUITOES

5. THE DRINKABLE BOOK

This book is genius: along with providing basic information on clean water, each page of the Drinkable Book is coated with silver nanoparticles, which kill 99.9% of bacteria when water passes through. The result: clean, safe drinking water. Once a page of the book has been torn out, it can be used multiple times as a filter, providing up to 30 days of clean water for one person.
