I personally think these are a fucking waste of time. (Except for the segway, which is fucking awesome.)
Waste of time? THOSE GLASSES FOR READING ARE FUCKING geNIUS I WANT THEM!
oh my god what the fuck are these but i would admit those reading glasses while lying down are fucking awesome
Ok but also imagine hacking the spin the bottle to always land on your crush/never on the pervy guy like how awesome would that beNo one is going to even mention the fucking BEER ROBOTS?!?!?!
Okay, some of these are puzzling, but a lot of the rhetoric which surrounds inventions such as the glasses for reading while lying down pegs them as being the domain of the able-bodied who would rather not do unecessary… Sitting up… Rather than them being initially developed for other purposes and then adopted for a more casual usage.
Specifically, my grandad fell down a flight of stairs on his 80th birthday and broke his neck, and spent the better part of a year in traction. Glasses such as those shown allowed him to watch television, read newspapers, and generally see ANYTHING but the ceiling above his bed.
Developments with a legitimate use are too often farmed out into the Informercial market. The egg breaker that we liked to rag on? Designed for people who can only use one hand. The juice pourer? For those who can’t support heavy weight in one hand, or who have weak wrists, or any number of other aspects which make pouring from a bottle normally difficult.
But if you use the cooler scooter and carry the microwave you’re fucking set
