Here are eight of the most brilliant and fun inventions of 2015:
1. Furniture you can charge your smartphone on
2. Glowing headphones
The Glow Laser headphones glow in the dark, detecting the rhythm of the music you’re listening to, and can also measure your heartbeat. This is a very useful thing for those addicted to evening and night-time jogging — the headphones will make you more visible to cyclists and drivers.
3. The Easy Plug
Seungwoo Kim’s idea is meant to reduce the danger of using electrical appliances. This ergonomic plug, which is hollow in the middle, will remind you that it can be removed from the socket by glowing blue. It can also be used as a lamp.
4. The Moonlight Lamp
5. Lamps made out of old bottles
This LED Bottle Cork can help you turn old empty bottles into useful desk lamps. A cork-shaped accessory is made with an LED and integral battery charged from a USB. The gadget is waterproof, so it can be used outdoors.
6. Changeable shoes
Special designed for female drivers, Sheilas’ Wheels are like no other pair of shoes: the heels can not only be reduced in size, but can also be removed completely, turning them into comfortable ballet flats.
7. Bed sheets which you can draw on
The Doodle Bed Sheets by Stitch are a simple invention really — they’re just a set of white cloth which come with some coloured markers. The ink used in the markers is designed to allow you to get perfectly white sheets after you put them through the laundry.
8. Mountain Top Glasses
