ENTER - Misc Avatar Contest - Inventions

Ok, so I think I've managed to come up with a good idea with a lot of potential. Don't think it's been done before.

Let's see your favourite inventions. Maybe it's the wheel, maybe it's sliced bread. But whatever it is, it should be something that has made a significant impact into our daily lives, whether we realize it or not.


Standard rules apply. Avatar size of 150x150.

Here's mine. Wouldn't be here without it

Hmm, the invention I am thinking of (and without I wouldn't be here either) would violate the "keep Misc PG13" rule
