5 pointless inventions you might actually want.

Day after day we see some hilarious examples of technology, which never quite take-off and hit the big time, leaving depressed inventors putting their ideas back on the shelf. After watching television shows based on these adventurous entrepeneurs desperate for a taste of success who haven’t quite made it, I want to share with you 5 gadgets which have never been truly successful, but in reality… I’d quite like to own, and maybe you do too! 

  1. The iPod toilet roll dock

This piece of kit is a very exciting gadget in my eyes. I’m one of those awful people who find it essential to bring my smartphone into the bathroom when I’m having a shower and blasting out some awful tinny tunes. Now with this bad boy I could enjoy some decent sound quality, potentially good enough to drown out my own screaming rendition of I’m Every Woman…

2. Picnic PantsImage

I love having a snack in the park, and yes… These are some terrifyingly unhygienic jeans, but imagine being that person at the park who doesn’t have to play the game of resting a sandwich, drink and a packet of crisps all on one leg to avoid the terrifying “chicken and bacon with a side of park mud with grass” sandwich. These are the babies to fix that problem!

3. Noodle Mask

The noodle mask is an exciting little gadget that I think would go down well with not just noodles, but spaghetti… Something my family are a big fan of! The days of wearing a Bolognese colored tie would be banished to yesteryears with this nifty little piece of headwear… Something yourself or a friend may be in need of?

4. The one can USB fridgeImage

You’re probably thinking what I first thought seeing this… I only ever buy one can of drink… It doesn’t last that long to get cold… You are stupid, why would I want this? I don’t want to waste a USB port. Well you’re probably right. But when it comes to “deskorations” (desk + decorations=deskorations… yes it’s bad), this is probably one of my favorites! It’s certainly better than most USB gadgets I’ve seen, and when it comes to summer, you’re the one holding the cards with the option of an extra can holder!


Being a bit of a caveman there’s one thing I really do love when it comes to acting like an animal, steak. More importantly, cooking a steak, on a BBQ preferably. This is (to a number of apes like myself) a big deal amongst friends. What better way to mark your efforts with your own steak brander? The steak brander is a true product of excellence in the ego world if you ask me.  Name it after yourself, or for the guest you are cooking for. This could be a winner for you this summer!
