World's Worst & Most Stupid Inventions - What Are They?

Postby Adam on Sun Jun 29, 2008 6:25 am

You can either state which terrible inventions already exist in real life, exist fictionally (like in TV, Movies etc) or think up your own - Anything that we can have a laugh at! Try not to put in anything which exists that has it's extremely valuable uses, but people are only able to see the negative side, e.g. the mobile phone - yes they are annoying, but extremely useful and most people would be lost without it. Remember - we're trying to be as daft as possible here ;)

Ejector seat for a helicopter
Solar-Powered flashlight
Wind-Powered Fan
Inflatable Dart Board
Glow in the Dark Sunglasses.
Electric Windows for a Submarine.
Pedal-Powered Wheelchair
Simpsons - Hamburger Earmuffs!!! "Don't worry Frinky, these baby's will be in the store while he's still gabbling with the Pickle Matrix... GLOIVEN GLAYVEN!!!"


Also everyday inanimate stuff that doesn't require movement in the first place, which has automatic at the beginning generally tends to be quite funny. E.g. the Automatic Tree.

Damn I was caught - I found out the Solar Powered Flashlight actually exists. It works by charging up in the day or whenever there is light, and stores the charge for use later. Not too bad an idea really!

Automatic Toaster. This actually exists. It works by browning the toast to your liking, then it pops up :D Again, a pretty good idea ;)

So this toaster will get the bread from my cupboard, take it out of the package, put it in, brown it, butter it, and feed it to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D Now that would be pretty awesome, or very scary :?

No, women are the best inventions ever ;) I'm totally with you on the drink thing. I can't drink anything that has no sugar, it's just plain disgusting. What's the point of drinking something in the first place when it tastes horrible?!

A portable safe.

To save theives the time of gathering up your belongings, it's the portable safe! So they can take it back to their own house and figure out the combination at their leisure!

Why have I been oblivious to that cracking thread until now? Guys, you are geniuses and I'm in serious danger of a bladder accident. :rofl:

The ones that threw me off my chair: inflatable dart board and electricity-powered generator. Gotta love absurdity! :thumbup:
