|Successfully invent at least 100 items.|
Use the "U-Invent" machines to make 100 items. You do not have to pick them up. To get extra items for inventions, simply return to previous levels. The enemies will respawn and you will be able to kill them and loot them again.

It doesn't matter how many times I invent stuff this achievement won't unlock.
Is there some glitch here I'm not seeing?

god this achievement sucks. i collect pretty much from every single dead splicer i find, as well as corpses, trash can, ash trays, storage crates, lockers, etc. even using the two tonics that help with the u invent machine (one reduces the needed qty of items, the other doubles your items) i still can't get this. of course i am doing it in a single playthrough, but still...

Tip: If you go for the achievement near the end of the game (it has to be done before the final boss fight) you might have problems finding enough enemies with the required items. Therefore I suggest visiting Arcadia -> Farmer's Market where the bees are located. Activate the smoke in order to prevent the bees from attacking you and search the bee-crates. Everytime you press "A" on a bee-crate a Splicer will spawn, kill them until the smoke disappears and collect their items. Repeat until you have enough materials to create 100 items at an U-Invent-Station.
Make sure you have these tonics equipped:
- Clever Inventor (will reduce the number of all components required to invent an item by 1, down to a minimum of 1. )
- Scrounger (will enable the player to search a corpse again for new

I didn't get this one until right before I took the elevator to the last boss fight. Just keep inventing stuff even if you don't need it.

Just to let you know the tonic that gives you double of what you make at a inventing machine doesn't affect the achievement, You still need to make 100 items, not 50.

Just in case anyone hadn't noticed, this achievement does NOT stack up across multiple playthrough's. You MUST make all 100 inventions within a single playthrough. Also don't panic if you near the end of the game and still have not unlocked the achievement. as has been remarked above, you can always choose to go back to Arcadia/Farmer's Market or any of the previous areas to find the required items for the rest of your inventions. Splicers will often respwan and wander about places you've previously visited, so take that to your advantage by going back and killing/looting them for more items.
It's an easy achievement but requires some patience on your part. Chances are it won't pop until towards the end of your playthrough.

Finally got this thing. And so people don't have to replay 11 times like I did, WRITE DOWN HOW MANY THINGS YOU HAVE INVENTED. That thing you have to make in Arcadia that's part of a quest DOES count towards this. What I did was write in a text on my phone (not sending it to anyone just a draft) saying "U-Invent Items:
???/100" And replaced the ?'s depending on how much items I invented each time. So if I had 20/100 then made 11 U-Invent items I added 11 to 20 and got 31/100 (Just explaining in case people are confused). Got this a little bit after getting the Big Daddy helmet. My strategy to make a lot of items was just horde and use the "Scrounger" perk. If an enemy/crate didn't have what I needed I pressed RT and moved on. Once I found another U-Invent, I made stuff and repeated the pro

*CONTAINS SPOILER* This was really easy... I didn't even try I just invented what I needed and got it. (First play through, right after killing Andrew Ryan)

#6 and #14 had some good tips. I just finished this and had Scrounger equipped for most of the game. I also made sure I had Clever Inventor equipped and hacked the U-invent machine when it came time to craft.
I kept track of the number of items I had made so far, made sure to craft at least 1 of each thing to assist with other achievements, and crafted the items I had the most materials for, not necessarily the most useful items.
During the game, I crafted a few Hacking kits as needed, but left most of the crafting until towards the end. Keep an eye on your looting though, since you can only hold 50 of each crafting material, and will get a warning that you were unable to pick up more if that item is maxed. For this reason, stop by a U-Invent machine from time to time and check

If you get towards the end and still don't have the junk to get this achievement, you missed a lot of the game. Here are some hints, though:
Return to Arcadia. Enemies will infinitely respawn, and usually drop crafting supplies.
Equip scrounger, so you can re-search if a body/ container doesn't contain crafting supplies.
HACK the U-invent machines, and equip Clever Inventor (Olympus Heights) and Prolific Inventor (rescue all Little Sisters). You'll get a LOT more from the same number of supplies.
Pay attention to how much of each supply you have/ need and plan ahead what you'll invent accordingly.

Comment #18 has a lot of the same hints and some other helpful ones, so between that one and my comment you should have all the info you need to easily get this.
