It might seem like everything in the world has already been invented and there is no room for improvement. But designers can still amaze us by making the ordinary things we know, better or more comfortable. Thanks to these creative upgrades, our lives become easier and much nicer. For example, you don’t need to tape the web camera on your laptop and if your phone battery dies while you’re taking a walk, you can just find and use a special bench.
