The World’s Most Useless Gadgets
There are some inventions that have been created to better the lives of people. Gadgets like the fire alarm device for homes, door bells, mobile phones etc. Then there are these utterly useless gadgets:
The AC T-shirt: This T-shirt comes with an Air Conditioner for those trips across the Kalahari Desert.
The Flying Alarm Clock: As if we don’t spend enough energy trying to find the snooze button on our normal clocks, this clock will buzz around like a fly that you just want to swat. Buying a new one isn’t cheap so swat gently!
The Electric Paper Airplane Launcher: Just put your paper plane between the two rotating discs and launch at 30mph. Wonder if you can launch other things like rotten tomatoes.
The TV in the Armpit: Missing out on your latest soap opera or want to know what is going on at the Cricket World Cup, just switch on the TV conveniently located in your armpit. Hmmm… well you might not be able to watch, you will act like that antenna guy, holding up your arms while your friends can watch.
Nothing: The perfect gift for anyone. The gift is a perfect orb that comes in a great packaging that does absolutely nothing but just look pretty. Won’t your friend be pleased with his ‘Nothing’.
The Message Toaster: This is a great gift to give your special someone before you plan on dumping or divorcing them. Just write a message on the top of the toaster and switch it on, when the toast comes out it has the message written on it. Perfect way to break up over breakfast.
The Nordic Bearded Cap: This is just plain silly. When will someone ever want to put on a cap and pretend to be a Viking named Olaf. This cap comes in four amazing colors with two beard lengths.
The USB Fragrance Burner for Laptops: This probably was created to help people relax while they work. Available for just $8, I hope the boss doesn’t mind when you get so relaxed that you start snoozing at the job.
USB Toothbrush: Who in the world would want to brush their teeth by the laptop. I mean cleaning up spilled drinks and food crumbs is hassle enough, can you imagine trying to clean up toothpaste.
The two-sided shoes: These very unpractical shoes have been designed so that when you sit on the bed or sofa, you don’t have to turn the shoes around. Just insert your feet and you’re off.
