Useless inventions

I just came across some funny, yet totally useless inventions.
Any weird stuff you might want to share?

The useless box


and my absolute favorite "Pet Butt Cover"

Re: Useless inventions

In totally the other direction, one of the best, simple inventions we have at home is a pineapple corer:



It works perfectly and one day I'm going to take the hollowed out shell, fill it with dark rum and put it in the fridge for a couple of hours .

Re: Useless inventions

The box is cool. Similar (but more complex these days) to the stuff we had to make in our Control Technology projects.

Re: Useless inventions

For all you curious people...a bit freakish if you ask me...


Funny creative coffin periscope patent time: 1908; when coffin buried, itís hard to know if the dead resurrect. American inventor Veles designed coffin periscope, in order to satisfy the curiosity of the family, the invention is for people of the outside world to peep whether the deceased rest in eternal peace. It is said that this product has not yet been come into the market.

You could combine this with a coffin bell, whereby the deceased, or not as the case may be, can indicate their continued existence to the living.
