For me one of my favourite inventions is the humble Paper-clip - such a simple idea but it works so well

I really like those locking devices you get on supermarket trolleys where you put a £1 coin to release the trolley - it's such a simple idea but it totally changes the way people behave. If you go to any supermarket without those locks you will find trolleys all over the car park, but by giving people a simple incentive of getting their £1 back you encourage them to put back their trolley nice and neatly.

Some of my favorite inventions are simple things that we take for granted, and only realize their importance when they become critical or when we don't have them. For example, the road lines on a highway are life-saving when you drive in a crazy rain, the electricity enables so many other things, innovative packaging solutions allow us to take our food and drinks anywhere and enjoy them when we want and how we want. In fact, product packaging is probably one of the most innovative industries these days.

Funnily enough I was thinking about road markings recently - as I've been watching several videos made by Tesla Car owners and the Telsa self driving system relies on camera to read the road markings so it's probably going to be even more important that councils, etc maintain those road markings. Where I live a lot of road markings are worn out and faded - I wonder how that will affect self driving cars that rely on those markings.
