Most useless inventions ever
Portable Chin Rest
. A chinrest is a shaped piece of wood (or plastic) attached to the body of a violin or a viola to aid in the positioning of the player jaw or chin on the instrument.The chinrest may be made of ebony, rosewood, boxwood, or plastic.It was invented by Louis Spohr in the early 19th century historically, this has been explained as a response to increasingly difficult repertoire which demanded freer left hand techniques than had previously been used however, Spohr intended his small block attached to the bout to protect the tailpiece, which he reportedly broke with his vigorous playing.However, after being promoted by prominent violinists of the day, such as Pierre Baillot and Giovanni Battista Viotti, it gained quick acceptance among most violists violinists and is today considered a standard part of the viola and violin.
Control Alt Delete Wand
. If you were using Windows in the 90 like this dude seems to be, a tool like this could have dramatically increased your productivity.
Wind Powered Clothes Dryer
. The cost of building the device is but a small fraction of the price of even a used clothes dryer.Even more money will be saved over the long term because the SPCD uses no electricity or gas.The energy is free actually a combination of solar and wind power.The most important item is rope.Wire can also be used, as long as it is protected from rust or other corrosion.You may also need some sturdy hooks or nails.Ideally the SPCD should be outdoors in an area where the sun shines.Survey the area for sturdy vertical objects at least 6 feet high.You need a least two of them.Trees, poles, and buildings work well.The illustration shows a typical installation.
. The Baby Mop was inspired by a Japanese ad spoof, according to Mike Parker, director of operations at BetterThanPants.com, which makes the outfit.I think was in the late 90s and the photograph has been floating around the internet for years, he tells NewsFeed.Since the Baby Mop went on sale on their site, sales have grown exponentially.At first it was two or three a day, and we were like, oh wow people are actually buying these.Then it just kind of took off.All of a sudden they were like crazy double digits, he says.As far as anything thats not tshirt related, nothing has taken off like this.
Solar Powered Cigarette
. Smokers, prepare to look even cooler than normal when youre smoking.Instead of lighting your smoke with a nambypamby Bic or a holierthanthou Zippo, you could be harnessing the power of the sun! Imagine its rays streaking toward Earth like a comet trying to catch a bus, collecting in a momentous joyfulness on a small, reflective dish that dish attached to a weird springy, coily thing that itself is attached to your unlit cigarette.
Car Exhaust Grill
. Mmmm, cancer never tasted so good! This invention allows users to make nice savory burgers with car exhaust.The makers say the fumes stay away from the burger, but really, is it worth the risk.Plus, if you do not have the time to make a burger, but you do have the time to use an ignorant device like this, you need to reprioritize your life.
Air Conditioned Shoes
. Air Conditioned Shoes provide extra fresh air in your soles, however, it just a pair of shoes with holes in them.Not only is it not an upgraded shoe, it an incomplete product they are trying to pass as a luxurious item.They claim the product has unique filter technology.Yeah, we can put holes in our own shoes and not pay doller75 for it.We will admit though that the guy smile in the photo almost had us sold.His grin is freaking huge.
. The CTA Digital iPotty is meant to make potty training less of a chore for kids however, the whole idea is nasty and unnecessary.You know your kids are going to get crap on your technology this way.What kid needs to be entertained even when on the crapper.
. The Shoe Umbrella helps your feet stay dry from the rain.It also takes waterproofing way too far.The shoes look ridiculous, and they are not worth it.You will get soaked by the jokes that will undoubtedly shower you on the street by gawking strangers
USB Pet Rock
. The USB Pet Rock plugs into your computer and guess what it does.Nothing.The makers claim it is good for entertainment, because you can make up stories when people ask you.However, we think it a complete waste of money.There no fooling us.Sorry bro.
. Do your fish ask you on a daily basis to take them for a walk.Well now you can with this Goldfish Walker.Like you would a dog, you can keep your goldfish on a leash and tote them around the neighborhood.Although we would not buy one of these, we did pay to see someone lugging one of these around a neighborhood.
. Everyone thinking, Why ca not I take some shots with my 9 iron when I drop a number 2.Well now you can with Toilet Golf.Inventions like this one make you wonder who exactly came up with them.We wanna meet the guy who said to himself that this was a good idea, and that it needed to be spread throughout the world.
Walking Sleeping Bag
. This sleeping bag allows you to walk comfortably while still maintaining inside of sleeping bag status.The makers probably thought hopping looked silly, so they thought making a person look like a creature from a swamp would be more sensible.The bag would be great for freaking the crap out of people.
. Why would you need that much privacy when looking at your computer screen or your phone.Unless you have found images of OJ other glove, there no need to be this discreet.And let think about this wo not this only bring more attention to you.Wearing the privacy scarf will only make people more curious about what you are reading
. We will go out on a limb here and say this is one of the worst product ideas anyone has had.The Neckpro is meant to help ease neck problems by having users basically suspend themselves by a rope.And sorry we have to say it, the product has probably killed just as many people as it has helped.
. This is supposed to give men who are balding some extra hair on top.However this is not the way to go, the hat is not fooling anyone.Also, what man wants to have hair that looks like carpeting.It seems like being bald would be a better alternative.Besides, Michael Jordan, Tae Diggs, and Vin Diesel pull it off well.
Wine Glass Holder Necklace
. We have one question who drinks that much wine and does not have a table.It bad when your product competition in the market is virtually any flat surface around whatsoever.The Wine Glass Holder Necklace also has to make walking more difficult.We are all for booze but this seems highly impractical.
Female Lap Pillow
. Nobody will use this pillow, at least not in public.It creepy to imagine feeling comfortable nestled on the lap of torsoless legs.It freaky and we do not condone it.Plus the legs are on a slant and that can not be completely comfortable.Even if you are kinky and this is your kind of thing, it can not feel nice to lay your head on this odd pillow.
. The famed Banana Slicer is meant to make chopping bananas a breeze.Because people typically do not carry any other utensils capable of cutting bananas this is pretty nifty.Rather than using your gun or your rocket launcher to get perfectly cut slices of bananas, simply use this absolutely necessary device.
. The product is meant to make applying lipstick easier for ladies.However from the photo the oversized hole looks like it would give you a red mustache.But if you used the product, you would get the added benefit of looking like you are being restrained in a mental asylum.
. The Facial Flex is meant to provide an all natural facelift and it marketed towards women.All you have to do is flex the muscles around your mouth like you are performing a sexual act and eventually you will look 15 again.We are sure it may get a female lots of new male friends but years later she will just be a droopy faced elderly woman who has been around the block.
. It a problem we did not know about.So many people are getting billions of calories from water.The substance is loaded in fat and sugars that are bad for you.IT has to be true, why else would someone try to sell a diet version of something that does not have calories.
. The Remote Wrangler is basically a ski mask with velcro that you can stick your remote on so you never lose it.But really, this is an extreme solution to the problem.Nobody wants to wear their remotes.The look is completely ridiculous and the person who invented it has lost touch with reality.
TV Hat Personal Theater
. Sometimes you want to block out everything and enjoy a good movie, but sometimes that can be difficult on the go.Well, TV Hat Personal Theater claims to give buyers a motion picture experience anywhere.It also gives buyers the experience of being made fun of by anyone around.Would you like to look like Darth Vader just so you can watch a movie in public.
Cat Napkin Chain
. This device is made to hold your napkins in place.Yeah, most post people just use the neckline of their shirt, but why miss an opportunity to be THAT person at the table. Plus you get the added benefit of wasting the doller20 dollars the thing costs.It a winwin if you think about it.
Gas Powered Flashlight
. Forget about batteries.The GasolinePowered Flashlight will brighten all those dark places.This is obviously a better device to use as a flashlight because not only do you get the added bonus of looking like a tough gangster with the huge device, you also get to handle highly flammable and toxic chemicals.If you breathe it in enough, even your body will go lights out.
The DVD Rewinder
. How does this exist. Obviously it was a big pain in the old days to rewind VHS tapes, but what exactly does a DVD Rewinder do. There nothing to rewind, but you can see below there a site and they even have merchandise.It also says We have very few left in stock and we do not plan to continue production after 2009.We do not want to live on this planet anymore.
