Make Your Surroundings More Convenient

How can you make something around you more convenient?

Early automobiles didn’t have many of the amenities of those today. When it rained, drivers had to deal with a rain-covered windshield or hang their heads out of an open side window. Mary Anderson decided to make things more convenient. In 1903, she invented the first hand-operated windshield wiper. By 1917, a Hawaiian dentist had invented the electric-powered windshield wiper, though he never marketed it. By 1924, electric windshield wipers were being manufactured and they have since become standard on all automobiles.
