We know that Japan has been at the forefront of technology for years. It has been the number one power, although it now rivals Korea. A story of overcoming and hard work that has not always shown everything behind the inventions and advances made. And it is that, along the way, there have been many crazy ideas and prototypes that are, to say the least, surprising. Products that we do not know if they really served their purpose, but that will offer us a good time in this article.
The solar lighter
Not suitable for nervous and impatient people. If you only have five minutes to go out for a cigarette, this solar lighter is not your best friend. Of course, it does not run out of fuel either. Of course, it is necessary to have good rays of sunlight to concentrate enough heat and achieve lighting the cigarette. Useful? No. Flashy? Quite.
If you are tired of destroying toast bread trying to spread the butter all over the surface, here is the solution. Butter stick, but glue stick. A more or less crazy invention but that can be ideal for trips and excursions. Neither stain knives nor do you have to suffer to spread it. All are advantages.
Only an Asian mind could have created such a product. There would be no more tongue and lip burns with this invention. It is true that its design is not very successful, but the idea of attaching a mini fan to a toothpick makes sense.
Okay, there is not much technology here. This is a finger condom or a thimble and the head of a toothbrush. Let's analyze its strengths and weaknesses: It's comfortable, it takes up less than a normal toothbrush and you can use it anywhere, but it has a downside. Don't wear it in public if you don't want to be looked at weird.
Telescopic slippers for walking around the house
We declare ourselves absolute fans of this product on tuexperto.com and we hope that a new version will hit the market shortly, although it surely will not. Apparently, its purpose is to kill insects from the home at a more than prudent distance thanks to its command. It occurs to us that it can be the ultimate discipline tool. Mothers of the world no longer have to pick up their espadrille after throwing it like a boomerang to correct bad behavior.
The first impression of this product is that it is really ridiculous. The second thought leads us to a more than interesting approach to save money and natural resources. If you have to leave the house on a rainy day, at least it helps you collect a few liters to drink or cook. Of course, the problem is in transporting the container with the collected water.
We don't even know how to title it
Do you have Godzilla in your ear? So much earwax to build a candle? Well, you no longer need anyone to look at you in the lateral cavities of your head. With this device it is possible to poke around the ear, seeing at all times what you are doing and what you are encountering. We are left between surprised and disgusted, without knowing very well where the balance leans the most.
Slippers for the perfect lazy householder
Bending over to pick up crumbs is a thing of the past. Although this photo could well be from the 80s or 90s, the Japanese were already thinking of new formulas to do household chores much more comfortably. Of course, instead of bending the hinge and bending over, you have to develop a whole technique of gestures between knees and ankles to be able to sweep with these utensils. Now, the next problem is to get the dust and crumbs to the bin without dropping everything there.
If you can currently carry the office on your mobile to work anywhere, this Japanese tie from a couple of decades ago did the same way back in the 90s. Although more literally. Scissors, paper clips, post-its, pens, cards ”¦ Of course, forget about passing the security control of an airport with such a complement tied around your neck.
Antilloro glasses for cutting onions
Their mechanism is so simple and practical that it is hard to believe that they are not marketed globally. We know that the torn molecules that go into reaction and cause a sulfur-based gas is what makes us cry, something that normal glasses with glasses would not prevent. However, if two small fans are coupled to remove said gas ”¦ One of two, or they achieve the effect for which they were built or they fly off.
