There are some inventions that we as humans cannot live without. Imagine a life without electricity, the wheel, airplanes and computers. Difficult right? On the other hand, there are some that simply fade into oblivion.
Here are some inventions that might be a little quirky, but could prove useful. Why not take a look and decide for yourselves.
Wake Up Pillow
It vibrates when it's time to wake up. What can be worse than that? Imagine waking up to the sensation of your whole world shaking. Did we tell you had has a snooze system as well? Check it out.
Beef Jerky Business Card
OK- this one is just weird, very weird; but it does serve a dual purpose.
A company by the name of Meat Cards makes them out of beef jerky and prints your information on them with a laser. Bonus: edible for up to a year.
Yeah, these finger tongs have got a lot going for them. Made of heat resistant; nonstick; dishware safesilicone, this invention is well intentioned, we can grant it that, but nothing more. Clearly the inventor of this contraption never cooked on a regular basis.
Here’s one way to make sure that you never get out of your apartment on time for anything. God forbid if there is an emergency. The Defendius Labyrinth Security Lock is designed by Art Lebedev Studio, who have gone to the trouble of constructing it out ‘of 100% titanium alloy, nothing less than a level forty-two spell of ultimate cutting will break this lock open. ‘
If interested, you can get it for a good fifty bucks.
So the day of the bedside clock is history now. But there still are watches and cell phones that can easily tell time. Who wants a LED clock in the pillow and who would sleep on one? Apparently Ian Walton did and not only worked on the idea but found an ally in the form of Eoin McNally, who helped him to come up with this invention. The pillow gently awakes you with its light that increases intensity over a 40-minute period. Once you are awake and lift your head from the pillow, it displays the time for you on the pillowcase.
Impressive indeed, but sorry, no takers here.
Beer Bottom Anyone?
Really? Doesn’t it make you want to hunt the inventor of this ‘thing’ down and shake them till their teeth rattle? What made them come up with that? And if he did, did he really have to go ahead with it?
Now this is rocking, literally. The Drumberella is a whacky invention by Dong Min Park. The ‘drums’ that make up the umbrella are made of five different sized wax-cloth made ‘shades’, with different elasticity. Depending on the elasticity and size of the ‘shades’, the frequency of sound emitted differs accordingly. So while it rains away around you, you can enjoy your own nature-made music- a natural symphony even. But thank goodness this invention didn’t become popular. Imagine the cacophony a thousand people odd people’s Drumbellas would create.
