Top 100 Inventions Trends of 2012
From $9 Paper Bikes to Beer Cup-Creating Tools

It takes a special kind of mind to be able to come up with a great concept for an invention out of thin air, but as these inventions trends show, 2012 was a year full of this kind of innovation. The difficult thing about inventing something is not just coming up with an idea, but getting it off the ground—luckily, digital natives have resources like Kickstarter available to help.

These resources have made it so that even the most obscure invention gets a chance. This is seen in such oddball pieces as the Cardboard Bicycle, which costs all of $9, but holds up to 485 pounds. Other noteworthy invention microtrends from 2012 include private work pods, Game Boy-made robots and the “why didn’t I think of that”-inducing scoop-knife.

Check out our Inventions Trend Report if you’re looking to sift through the sea of random, yet interesting invention microtrends.
