Invention Round Up 1
Ok, so we all know there are some dumb,crazy, or out there inventions(sometimes a combination of all 3). I’ve been stumbling across a few of these lately and thought I would take the time to share two them with you. I might start posting 2 a week or every few days, depending on how ridiculous, or ridiculously cool it is I may post more or less.
So lets begin shall we!
Yanko Design – The Carpet Alarm Clock
Now this invention here is a great concept! You know how it is first thing in the morning you mindlessly slam your hand down on the alarm and roll over and go back to sleep. Then you wake up 2 hours late for work and all you can do is scream fuck the whole time your falling out of bed as you have one leg in your pants hopping around think your panic mode will make you get ready faster…Yeah I’m talking about the alarm.
According to the company who makes these:
“In order to turn it off, you have to get up and step on it. If you really want to make it a challenge, place it far away from your bed. Of course it wouldn’t be a clock if it didn’t have and LCD screen to indicate time too.”
Which yes its a great idea! But, if your as lazy as i am you will find a way to throw something heavy enough down there to shut it off and be late 2 hours for the third day in a row. Plus I wonder if pets can turn it off?? Might be a new excuse sweeping offices I can see it now.
Boss:“Your LATE again!!! What happened this time??”
You:“Its not my fault my cat finds my alarm clock comfy to sleep on and turned off my alarm”
Ok someone please tell me that this is a joke! I mean honestly who would be ridiculous enough to wear this!
And if you think the picture is ridiculous here are some highlights from the website:
“The Multimedia Remote Control Wrangler (aka Remote Wrangler) has taken a novel approach to remote control storage that will be sure to take the world by storm, head first. It will certainly win the hearts (and heads) of those frustrated consumers who have had enough and are ready to regain control over their lives and remote controls.” – YES it will win hearts and take the world by storm if we all decide its fashionable to look like an utter retard!
“Keeping comfort and accessibility as the main focus, remote controls (and practically any small handheld device) can easily be attached (and detached) with a Velcro-like material. Made from a stretchable fabric, the headpiece comfortably conforms to the face and feels like a second skin, minus the acne. As an added benefit, a surprisingly quiet and effective battery powered and remote controlled temporal massager is built into the headpiece.”- Yes because you have to feel comfortable looking like a moron all day while you wear it! Plus the temporal massager is good for those who hit their head that would usually be covered by their “special ed” helmet if they weren’t wearing this contraption!
And sadly, it also states there is only 2 styles availble. Which they describe as:
“For the sports enthusiast, there is the red white and blue “Retro Sportsman” model, which has proven to be very popular in the Asian market. The demure “Antique Olive ” caters to the conservative crowd who may prefer a more discreet and formal appearance.” – Yes that looks very discreet and formal!!!
GIVE ME A BREAK!
So that’s it today for my invention round up. Mind you if I see something else I may be posting invention round up 2 soon!
~Yeah I’m a ranting, opinionated lunatic so what?!~
