Innovation is when someone takes an idea that already exists and creates a different version. This can be anything from complex machinery to simple everyday objects. This list of innovative ideas stand out to us as they help improve everyday life. Some of them already exist in certain parts of the world whereas others are concept ideas hoping to go into production. A few of them are even available right here on Awesome Inventions! Our favorite has got to be the giant slide!
