Most Useless Inventions Ever
Some inventions are just so pointless that they end up on our list.
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. Baby Mop
The Baby Mop was inspired by a Japanese ad spoof, according to Mike Parker, director of operations at, 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.
5. 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.
