TWQ: Great Inventions

This weekm we look at the world of inventions:

What wacky inventions would you like to create? Let your imaginations run riot here!

Here are some of my answers:

The Politician Truth Meter: The meter shoots up whenever a politician is lying. Needs to be a strong model as it may suffer from repeated use.

The Sports Commentator Anti-Trivia Silencer: Eliminates all useless drivel mentioned by a sports commentator.

The Anti-Salesman Forcefield: Keeps all salesmen well away from the shopper while looking around.

Now it's over to you...

But before I go...

Don't forget, that if you want to join my Federation Frappr Map, do so by clicking the map on the right side of my Journal. I'd love to have you there!

jude said...

the she-remote is a good one, also the supersonic dog bark silencer.

panthergirl said...

I want one of those punching bags on a spring to put on the back of my car, to punch the lights out of tailgaters!!!

I like your truth detector, but I'd extend that to celebrity wife-murderers and child molesters. ;)

Here via michele, but an official member of the fleet!

an automatic turn off for cars whose owners accidentally hit the horn button on their keychain (I hate that feature and am often the guilty party)

Pearl said...

An office chair ejection seat hooked up wirelessly to the buzzers and timers around the house.

kenju said...

I don't think I could come up with anything any better than your three. I would really love to see those in use!

Michele sent me.

Pearl said...

Always a pleasure to come here. Michele sent me this time. Other inventions, hm, how about a Jobifier

A database that searches for jobs within 1.5 km of home and notifies you whenever one comes up?

Over from the other Michele's on the fine Saturday morning.
At least its morning here..

Stationery Queen said...

The sports commentator device is just GENIOUS.

I'd like to invent the I'm-no-longer-a-bitch Sister-In-Law fixer. It would make her pleasant, nice, say my name correctly, and not try to hog my husband. Let him go, beyotch! He's all grown-up now!!!

:-)

Stationery Queen said...

that's genius, too. Too early in the day for me to be typing.

BarbaraFromCalifornia said...

I will like to create a machine that would bring my dog Astro back to life.

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator said...

I like your ideas, I would want to go a different direction with the The Sports Commentator Anti-Trivia Silencer device though. Trivia isn't always so bad, but when they make the innane comments like "The team that scores the most points is going to win today" or "See how it looks like an I, but the fullback is offset? That's why they call it the offset I." Yes, I've actually heard those.

Sometimes I wish that I had a device that would stop people from asking me for things that they can't have at work. "Hey, can you hook me up with a--" BZZZZT! "Hey, can you make it so I can put a picture of my kitties on my computer wallpaper?" BZZZZT! "This other guy has a [insert program or item here], can I have one, too?" BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZT!

The inflatable sandwich...

Lori said...

I would like to create something like....For them people that are going like 10mph in their car and not a care in the world.....It would be kinda like a dump truck....It's attacted to your car and you just pick them up and put them behind you....LOL

And something for telemarkers....When they call my number they get alittle
shock....LOL

Have a great day!!!

Professor Xavier said...

Since getting Tivo, I find that all of my needs have been met.

Vampirella said...

well after a certain comment here I would have to say a device that shocks bad comment makers :| grrrr


captian I really dont know what I would event I find I am out of ideas
so I will just use your inventions :P


by the way I hope you are enjoying your stay in our century... Hope Hot Stuff dont tire you too much LOL

Better Safe Than Sorry said...

i'd like a meter that keeps track of when my daughter comes in after curfew and later in the day, when she is trying to sleep, it will keep her awake.

Jabafatboy said...

A Volume / mute button for children, they have a way of saying the exact wrong thing at the worst possible time, or being extremely loud when a parent is Ill.

Not there fault , just happens

rashbre said...

Temporal remote control with jog would be handy. Short duration would be a good start.

Janet said...

I would invent a jacket that has built in warming. Just like the electric blanket, I believe this item would sell like hot cakes.:)

Jean-Luc Picard said...

You are coming up with sone great inventions! Put those patents in!

Nikki-ann said...

"The Anti-Salesman Forcefield" <--- That's definitely be a good one! :)

Hope you're having a good weekend.

Here via Michele's :)

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I love the way your mind works Jean-Luc...I wish I could come up with something but...No Dice! (LOL)
Here from Michele this early A.M. here in L.A.

Viamarie said...

Good morning! Hope you have a restful Sunday.

Here from Michele's.

JustSue said...

Love the politician idea ...or how about the telemarketer zapper ...extra high zaps for calling right in the middle of the dinner hour!

FRIDAY'S CHILD said...

The Politician Truth Meter is quite cool. Hope this would be true. Wouldn't it be nice if we really had this. Wouldn't it also be nice that when everytime a politician starts to open his mouth the meter shoots up.

The Mistress of the Dark said...

That Politician Truth Meter would be a great thing, especially in the US.

Here via Michele's.

utenzi said...

Michele sent me, Captain.

I would love the Anti-trivia Silencer. It'd be great for sports, as you point out, but also during business meetings!

The mute button for kids, mentioned above, would also be great. I'd also use that in meetings! I'd also like some kind of warning device, perhaps part of an alarm clock, that would just let you know which days to call in sick and just never get out of bed. Life would be a lot richer if we could avoid days when diaster after diaster occurs!

Suzanne said...

I'd like to have an alert button display on idiots heads...you know just to prepare me for the conversation about to follow. Why we're at it...can we make a personal home money making machine that makes valid money?

Raehan said...

Let's see...I would invent a laptop that morphs into a paperback book when I just want to sit back and read and then morphs into a machine that reads my mind so I don't have to type with my fingers and get sore wrists.

But mind wasn't as funny as yours. I really want this one.

Carmi said...

Great idea, JL! I would ismply modify the Anti-Salesman Forcefield to include obnoxious colleagues, members of one's extended family, and all other odious beings.

Im Chele In [dot] LA said...

...I am so with Suzanne and that idiot button...
Over from the other Michele's.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

My patents seem to be winners with you all!

TNChick said...

I want a truth meter but for everyone, not just politicians.

I want to invent a Dr. Pepper container that never ends... Hmm... a push button hairsytles so I can fix my hair at the push of a button and have no hassle. LOL!!

Ciera said...

I agree with Tnchick---the truth meter should be for everyone!!!!

I would invent something that would help me keep track of my nail clippers...I have 2 and can never find 1 of them!!!

Susan said...

Something to turn the volume down on stroppy teenagers :)
