The world is an ever-changing place filled with ideas so great, it’s hard to fathom. Inventions around us continue to simplify our lives (or make them more fun, or more complex, or more exciting) every single day. While we have yet to find the cure for cancer or an end-all solution for poverty, and somehow no one has discovered how to make three hours of sleep feel like eight, but there are all kinds of things happening around us that remind us that there are little bursts of brilliance everywhere. Here are 20 products, designs and signs that make our lives just a little bit better:
