From Rollable TV Screens to Glow-in-the-Dark Chickens

Calorie-burning vests, meditation nightclubs and alcohol that's been infused with the vibrations of music are just a few of the most unconventional ideas that make up the top 2015 invention trends.

Like many inventions, some of the most creative ones from this year simply set out to solve existing problems. Developed for use around the house, some of the most ingenious new products and concepts include alarm clocks that rouse people with scents rather than sounds, mint-scented trash bags to keep pests away, as well as closets that double as washing machines.

A storage closet that also cleans clothing is just one of the many hybrid ideas that crossover existing products. Other noteworthy examples includes Sengled's PULSE lightbulb-speakers or the handy Wrist Drink water bottle bracelet.
