Some inventions are a stroke of genius that make you sit back and say “why didn’t I think of that?” or “wow, that is brilliant.” Many things we now take for granted recreated life as the people of their time knew it when they were introduced. They could communicate easily with loved ones far away, travel great distances efficiently, or simply make a quick hot meal without touching the stove. Other inventions, don’t elicit quite the same reaction. These are just a few of those strokes of “genius.”

Air Conditioned Shoes
Japanese companies produce innumerable amounts of ingenious, extremely useful products every year. ‘Hydro-Tech’ has let us down on this particular offering though.

Yes, holes. Maybe it’s just me but I got rid of the last pair of shoes I had that got ‘innovative.’

For the man who has everything, and doesn’t spend quite enough time in the bathroom EZ Drinker brings you the product everyone’s been clamoring for: Toilet Golf! Now I’m not much of a golfer so I’m unsure of what the proper golf etiquette would be here. How do we determine who’s away? Is there a penalty for water damage? And for God’s sake, do not tell me what you use to mark your ball.

I…I don’t even know what they were going for here? Diet water? The Japanese company claims it contains specialized peptide bonds that — oh nevermind, it’s diet water. I’m not bothering.

Not only do I really, really doubt this would get the job done it also has emergency room visit written all over it.
I don’t quite see the advantage to having a bunch of remotes plastered to your face, but apparently designer Rodd Miller did. Personally, I’ll stick to putting the remote next to me on the couch like a normal, sane person.
