It emerged this week that Samsung has come up with a new invention to reduce the amount of car accidents that occur when drivers try to overtake lorries. The company is introducing a line of safety trucks which will have wireless cameras in the front that project a live picture to a large television built into the back of the truck. Take a look at this video for a preview of how they will look and be used on the road.

We love the idea behind these trucks and set out this week to find our top five inventions that you need in your life!
