Given the knowledge and skills, I would definitely invent a "Clothes-Folding Machine". I am thankful that washers and dryers were invented to make doing the laundry easier. But there is none yet in the market that I know of, of a machine that can fold the clothes right after the drying part. And folding clothes really takes a lot of your time especially if you have a mountain-pile of washed clothes! How about you, what would you invent? Be it an appliance, a tool, or something that you think would be a great help to you and the mankind!:p C'mmon, I know there's an idea brewing up inside your head. Share it! Thanks!:p

That is a great idea: the Clothes Folding Machine! I do laundry just about every day and it all piles up on a chair until the weekend when I can fold it. I hate folding clothes. I would invent a mind reading machine so I can tell what other people are thinking. I know this is kind of unreal but it would be fun!

Thanks Dana! I am sure you'll be one of the first buyers if I introduce that machine to the public. And then I'd also try your mind reading machine. It would be interesting to read peoples' minds. :p

What abnbout ironing art you left that out. Did you knew my mom. she used to say exactly th same thing. I asked her to buy washing machine which is fully auotmatic and she pointed at our maid and told me that shealready has one who washes and dries the on line and even takes them off and folds them, lol. She is now no more but I do think you two must have met somewhere. I am in if you invent one tell me about it I would like to buy from you. So now you do have one potential customer.

Amielletherese, Everybody knows health is wealth. I will not discuss any more here.Simply I can say if you're healthy, you can do everything in your life without help of any machine. So, my invention will be based upon human health. We are being dragged to the world of fatal disease and everyday people are being diagonalized for fatal diseases viz cancer, AIDS, diabetes, heart problem. Our life is becoming miserable day by day due to such disease. I have planned such a machine that can cure people from any sort of disease whenever they are suffered with. And the machine can be affordable to every person and they can run it without the help of a doctor. Of course, there will not be need of physicians.

I am not sure if there is already something like this out there...but if there is, I havent heard of it..and I want one. Anyways, if I was to invent something...it would be a portable potty for training toddlers. With this I mean that the potty would some how fold up making it compact enough to carry by a handle or in a diaper bag. My son is currently training and taking him out is an absolute nightmare...just in case he has to pee. He WILL not go on a normal sized toilet..for some reason he is scared. So whats a Mother to do... pull out her portable potty from a diaper bag...and there you go son..lol Just sounded like it would make life a wee bit easier when out with your little toddlers

I would invent a machine that actually does the laundry, folds it and puts it away. I am just so far behind on my laundry, partly because there are 6 people here to do laundry for and only one machine, and partly because at night instead of going to bed early, or DOING MY LAUNDRY I am here..lol!

Well... I'm not exactly sure what I'd invent. I wouldn't mind inventing something to help clean fish tanks. I have three, my partner has one large one and my roomie has two. It takes forever to clean them sometimes. I wouldn't mind inventing something that cleans and disinfects them without spilling water every where. That would be heaven!

Oh yeah, that would be as like what you said, heaven! I remember when we had one before, my sisters and I would pretend to be busy cleaning the house whenever our mom asked us to clean the fish tank! Thanks k1tten! :p

hi amielle, thats a good idea u have presented. if i were to invent something, then it would be a "Communication system" in cars operated by a computer. when a car comes closer to another by some dangerous distance, the communication system would indicate the other's system and warn both the drivers to keep away. then many accidents can be prevented. those who drink and drive have no consciousness and drive eccentrically, this system would help a lot by constantly would warn and make them keep straight.
