#MicroblogMondays 64: Best Invention Ever

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.


This hoodie is a portable back massager.  Granted, I have no clue what it looks like operating on your body.  Perhaps you perpetually look like you are doing a sitting up version of the worm, but I choose to believe that this hoodie will allow me to discreetly get a back massage all the ding-dong time.

I want.  I mean, I want as long as it doesn’t do odd things to my body on the cellular level.  It’s so brilliant that I can’t believe it hasn’t been done before this point — make a massage chair that can go with you.

What invention do you wish someone would make real?

Would it be too much to ask that space and/it time be bent? Because I can think of all sorts of entirely selfish uses.

If that is too big an ask, then how about silent packaging for snacks people purchase at the movies? There’s nothing like paying to see something you’ve looked forward to seeing in the big screen, getting engrossed. . .and then having it ruined by someone’s crinkly ice cream wrapping. Too petty?

2 Karen (River Run Dry) { 11.16.15 at 5:57 am }

Fantastic! I want.

I want someone to invent a heated pair of jeans and hoodie. Like my heated throw blankets, but wireless so I can walk around and stay warm. πŸ™‚

3 No Baby Ruth { 11.16.15 at 6:00 am }

A portkey, please.

4 Mali { 11.16.15 at 6:12 am }

Easy, a teleportation device. See to that, would you? πŸ˜‰

5 persnickety { 11.16.15 at 6:13 am }

A really good book scanner, so i can scan all of my physical books for my e-reader. because someone has already invented the gadget that lets me carry my library with me.
oh- no wait. an artificial uterus, so i can “get pregnant” without actually being so. i think its me that is the problem, so that would help.

6 35jupiterdrive { 11.16.15 at 6:28 am }

I want time travel, but only if you’re allowed to change things.

7 Jen { 11.16.15 at 6:53 am }

Fat-free fudge

8 Paradoxical Sprite { 11.16.15 at 7:11 am }

An invisibility cloak πŸ˜€

But if we’re being a little realistic today then I could really use a Rosie from the Jetsons. (Yes I know we have Siri but Rosie’s cooler.)

9 Charlotte { 11.16.15 at 7:49 am }

So many times I have been doing something and said oh I wish they would invent this but this morning I can’t think of any of them! So I am going to say a money tree for lack of anything more unique. Because… Money!

10 a { 11.16.15 at 8:21 am }

Well, in the practical sense, I want an app that keeps track of the movies I have seen or want to see – like a Good reads for movies. It should connect with IMDB, so I know what movies will be coming out. Someone, please create that app (or website) for me!

But a teleporter would also be nice.

11 anks { 11.16.15 at 8:23 am }

wouldnt I love one of these?

12 loribeth { 11.16.15 at 9:24 am }

I can’t think of anything at the moment — but you’ve reminded me of how my sister & I, walking to school as kids, used to wish that we could just step on the sidewalk & have it whisk us away to school, like a magic carpet. Imagine my delight when I first stepped off a plane at the vast Toronto airport in 1983 and discovered there actually was such a thing as MOVING SIDEWALKS. Where were these when we were wishing for them, 10-15 years earlier?? I still get a kick out of going on them, by the way. πŸ˜‰

13 Lindsay | Solo Mama { 11.16.15 at 9:25 am }

I echo some of the others – a teleportation device would be fantastic!

14 Stephanie (Travelcraft Journal) { 11.16.15 at 11:17 am }

It was fun reading the responses! Yes, I’d take a massaging hoodie. Also wouldn’t mind a teleporter, money tree, better-functioning organs, and quiet movie snacks. πŸ˜‰

15 Cristy { 11.16.15 at 11:42 am }

Mali and No Baby Ruth stole my idea.

16 Alexicographer { 11.16.15 at 12:09 pm }

@Loribeth, did you see this — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dslD9S8pkr8 ? Tremendously funny (and clever).

I’ll take a home that cleans itself, please. Mind you, I think this largely exists already in terms of functionality being available, but that because people who make decisions about home building/buying don’t value the time of those who clean houses, self-cleaning houses don’t get built.

17 Geochick { 11.16.15 at 12:21 pm }

I want Rosie from The Jetsons too!

did you go to the website to watch the video about the jacket? I WANT. So much that I signed up on their e-mail list. πŸ˜€

18 Catwoman73 { 11.16.15 at 1:12 pm }

I hate driving in the winter, so I wish someone would invent some kind of road surface that wouldn’t accumulate ice and snow- maybe a heated surface or something. Windshield wipers that actually work during the winter would be awesome, too.

19 nonsequiturchica { 11.16.15 at 2:24 pm }

I like Alexi’s idea of a house that would clean itself!

20 Laurel Regan { 11.16.15 at 2:31 pm }

Affordable teleportation. πŸ™‚

21 Traci York { 11.16.15 at 2:44 pm }

Oooo, so many inventions come to mind, but given the current state of my refrigerator – healthy (chocolate is healthy, right?) food that appears in my kitchen with just the touch of a button. πŸ˜€

22 loribeth { 11.16.15 at 3:15 pm }

@Alexicographer: I did, thanks! Cracked me up!

23 Lori Lavender Luz { 11.16.15 at 6:49 pm }

I’m with the Mali peeps.

24 Debbie D. { 11.16.15 at 7:44 pm }

What a great invention! My back gets sore a lot.
I would love that Star Trek computer. You order anything you want to eat and drink and it instantly delivers. No cooking or dirty dishes.

25 Jess { 11.16.15 at 8:14 pm }

Oh, wow… that sounds both really awesome and a little awkward. Because most massage chairs/massager thingies vibrate, and if you sat up against say a bench…would it vibrate? I would love one of those though, because I could just get a massage every day if it wasn’t hideously expensive. An invention I wish would come true? Invisibility cloak, hands down.

26 sharah { 11.16.15 at 11:10 pm }

I want a self-supporting bra that doesn’t just transfer the weight to my shoulders/back. Alas, I don’t think I’ll be getting that any time soon πŸ™

27 Parul { 11.17.15 at 3:22 am }

This sounds interesting! As a back patient, wearing this hoodie would mean a massage. Sounds like a fab idea πŸ˜›

28 Em { 11.17.15 at 4:39 am }

Ha! A teleportation device was the first thing I thought of as well! I have family in different countries so knowing I can see them at the drop of a hat would be amazing. The other one for me would be a housekeeping robot.

29 Valery Valentina { 11.17.15 at 2:50 pm }

As a kid i always ‘ invented’ the same thing when feeling so tired when going to bed: a tunnel to slide down through that removes your clothes, brushes your teeth and gives you pre heated-pyamas before ending in bed.
