What were they thinking, pt. 2

Okay, this next one is a bit odd but a little fascinating too...

The Connection Glass was born out of two things product designer Priscilla Bernikowicz realized about bars: 1) that they're terrible places to meet people, because the noise prevents you from hearing what anyone is saying, and 2) that people clutch their glasses like security blankets. So the Connection Glass is kind of like Dodgeball except not on your cellphone, in that it tells you who is in your vicinity and lets you look at their profiles and send messages. You can exchange details with someone you find interesting by clinking your glasses together.


Now, this one is just one of those very unpractical inventions with no purpose whatsoever...



Who exactly needs a keyring with folds out to be a fully functional kite? And what if it flies away or gets stuck in a tree, as kites inevitably do???





Ever feel like you're being followed at the grocery store??? Well... now you are!

Let me introduce you guys to B. O. S. S. , Battery Operated Smart Servant, a shopping cart that not only follows you around the store, but keeps a steady pace while cruising and throws on the brakes before clipping someone's heels. How lazy have we gotten???





And, saving the best for last...


I mean seriously, people, what the hell is going on here? This is the Amazing New Pokemon DS Stylus. And, again, I must ask... What the hell where they thinking!






That's about all, folks. Enjoy.

come on. It's not like we want to ride around in the thing. Though.... :)

Look, that kite is cool. What if you're stranded by the side of the road with nothing better to do? What more refreshing a site to passers-by than a stranded motorist enjoying a lazy day flying a kite?

That stylus is just wrong.
