Dumb Inventions

Some absolute classic “inventions” from yesteryear on Life.  They were thought up (I use that term loosely) many, many years ago so we shouldn’t judge them too much.  Dubious at best, but generally amusing throughout.  Some personal highlights from the list:

Kanye wasn’t the first to look like an idiot with these venetian blind sunglasses (1950).

Phone answering robot (1964), answers the phone but cannot speak or record.  It just picks up the handset.

Shower Hood (1970), for the woman who likes to put makeup on her dirty face.


For when an indoor playpen becomes too safe and boring, the baby cage (1937) seems ideal.


Curved barrell machine gun (1953), can’t see any problems with this one!
