You’ve probably heard the quote from poet Ralph Waldo Emerson, who said: “Build a better mousetrap, and the world will beat a path to your door”. That quote made me think about everyday objects that I use and how they can be improved. Take Post-it notes for example. I have a pad of them on my desk at work and home and rarely consider how they can be improved until I happened to see these Transparent Sticky Notes from Suck UK.
At first glance, you might think that Suck UK Transparent Sticky Notes are unique because they come in shapes like stars, arrows, lightning bolts, and more. But that’s not what makes them “better” than the regular sticky notes that most of us use.
Transparent Sticky Notes are made of transparent paper. That’s right, you can see through them while still being able to write on them with pen and pencil.
The fact that you can see through them makes them even more useful because you can place them over text in a book that you don’t want to ruin with notes. Just write your note on the sticky and place it over the text which you can still read through the transparent note. Nifty!
