I was surfing the internet when I saw this crazy useless invention that hit the limelight a couple of weeks ago. Just so you know, that thing is discussed in this list and is actually at the top spot. I figured that if there are brains that can actually put this sort of a thing into production then there might be other geniuses out there with absolutely amazing inventions. So I researched and here I am with the list on ten of the most useless things you can actually buy. Enjoy the read!
10. CAT WIGS
I happen to be a cat person and this particular invention actually annoys the hell out of me. Cats are lovely creatures; they are beautiful, pretty and insanely cute. Why on earth would I want my cat dressed up in a wig? That’s exactly what a cat needs because they are so jealous of human hair. They have their own hair to worry about sir!
9. THE DOG SACK
I am sure most of our readers love dogs. I love them too but that’s not the point. You take a nice family trip and you bring your dog along. Now, if you care enough to take the dog along with you, I am sure it will not bother you if the dog actually sits inside the car right? This particular invention is all about installing a sack right outside the door of your car so your dog can have a seat of his own. Pretty genius, at least until you’re in a bumper to bumper traffic. Yeah, that ought to be fun.
8. PHONE FINGERS
We are living in a smart age where smart phones and other smart products are the thing. I am sure most of you own a smartphone, and probably the one with a touch screen. If you keep using the phone for a long time, you must have noticed that the screen gets a little smudgy with body oils and finger prints. Well, fear not because now you can wear these condom-like and so totally gay finger gloves to protect your screen. Your screen will never be smudgy again. Of course you can imagine how much of a hassle it will be to actually wear these and then take them off in emergencies. Hats off!
7. SUBWAY CHINREST
The last I heard, man was a social animal. I was unaware that that has changed to just ‘animal’. Are you aware that donkeys can actually sleep standing up? Well, don’t be jealous because on the subway, you can do the same thing and it is not limited to subways. You can very well have this pole in your house, because when is bed ever a comfortable place to sleep. Most of the times, people don’t get a seat on the subway so they have to stand, and the neck starts hurting if you keep standing for a long time, therefore, Subway Chinrest was born.
6. THE PIZZA FORK
You know how difficult it is to use both your hands while eating a pizza. You know, you hold a fork in one hand and a knife in the other one. Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could do everything with just one hand while the other hand rests? I think that’s what the inventor of this particular fork had in his mind. I mean, why, WHY would you install a pizza-cutter right on the fork? We can use two hands, and even if we are unfortunate enough to not use the other hand, we can manage. Thanks for your creativity, but no thanks.
5. THE PLOW GUN
This particular invention dates back to the year 1826. I am pretty sure you can understand by the name of this particular tool to understand exactly what it does. Suppose you are plowing your farm, and you have this sudden urge to shoot something. You cannot go inside to get your gun because you have a deadline. This particular plow comes with a built-in gun so you can satisfy that shooting urge you have while working on the farm. I know, it’s absolutely amazing. But what could’ve triggered this idea in the head of the farmer in the early nineteenth century is a question I can’t figure the answer to.
4. FORK ALARM
In the year 1995, eating was a huge deal and especially timed eating. Therefore, an alarmed fork was invented. Now, I am pretty sure you can guess as to what exactly this piece of garbage does, but I’ll help you out anyways. Let’s suppose you are eating something with this particular fork. You take a bite, you wait for the alarm to ring and that’s when you take the other bite. The whole concept revolves around timed eating. Why you ask? I have absolutely no idea. This particular idea was actually patented in 1995 so don’t go around copying this genius invention or the idea.
3. HELICOPTER EJECTION SEAT
I am sure you guys know what purpose an ejection seat serves and I am also sure that you might have seen a few in action in different videos on YouTube, or some movie or some game. All you need to do is pull a lever and the top of the jet flies off with the seat ejected vertically upwards. Now, imagine the same concept in a helicopter. It’s bad enough that your helicopter is actually crashing but to think that in order to save yourself, the seat will blow you right into the fans at the top; mind blasting. It takes just a little sense to figure how insanely stupid even considering the idea was.
2. THE PROSTATE GLAND WARMER
I wonder what people are thinking when they come up with these ideas. This particular device is basically a nine foot electric cord with a 4.5 inch butt plug on one end and a blue light on the other. The device made its debut in the year 1914. It apparently stimulates the abdominal brain and you will know it’s working if the bulb lights up. You can very well use your imagination when it comes to ‘how do we use this?’ question. This is plain weird.
1. THE USELESS BOX
This one seems to be the latest talk in the geek world and sure enough it took the number one spot on our list. The name of this particular box does absolute justice to what it actually does. I have absolutely no idea why it is priced the way it is priced because you will get it for over $ 30. It is a plain box with a on switch on one side. What you do is, you turn it on and the other half of the box opens up and from within comes this robotic lever sort of thing that turns the switch off and that is all it does. Watch the video on YouTube if you do not believe me.
