Inventions are special skills and items not available from the beginning of the game. These skills require exp points to unlock. The amount of exp points needed for each upgrade increases exponentially as you go through the game and as you research more and more inventions.
Some inventions require you to have unlocked certain items before being able to research them, ex: You must research scythe before being able to get mycology and farming.
The EXP bottle at the bottom left of the screen shows how close you are to getting your next upgrade. When it fills up, the inventions bar will appear. Some inventions, like items, will move to the right or left side of the screen. Other thing like inventions won't show any visual change to the screen but will affect gameplay.
Once the improvement bottle says "Max", you can't get upgrades anymore. You are limited to a certain number of upgrades, so choose wisely.
