Proof that Some People Have Too Much Time on Their Hands


There are inventions that are life transforming: the wheel, the electric light, the telephone, the airplane, the internet. There are inventions that make life easier and better: iPods, laptops, microwave popcorn. And then there are inventions that are not so much proof of human ingenuity as they are evidence that given time, access to power tools and a dream, man can indeed build a better mousetrap.

Powered by batteries.

The following are a few products that might not be life transforming, but are certainly good for a chuckle or two:

  • Automatic Pancake Machine – This item from ChefStack can crank out 200 pancakes an hour. Great for a large brunch where you’re planning on serving–oh, a hundred or so–or if you want to open your very own IHOP.

  • Cruzin Cooler – You have your basic ice chest, then for convenience you have a cooler on wheels. But why settle for a dragging a wheeled cooler behind you when you can ride on TOP?

  • Grooler – Speaking of multi-purpose products, how about this one? It’s a grill, it’s a cooler, it’s a Grooler! The makers of Bud Light came up with the ultimate tailgating accessory. Beer and burgers not included.

  • PartyBike – Sorry Bud Light, but as far as multitasking goes Metrofiets has got you beat. According to Gizmodo:

“The bike features 2 kegs in the cargo bin along with 25 pounds of ice–but the beer also runs through a 50 foot cooling coil to ensure that it reaches your glass ice cold from the tap. It also features a rack designed to hold a stack of pizza boxes and a music system along side the rear tire.”

Bike, pizza transporter, beer keg and boombox all-in-one. Awesome!

    No cool ideas myself, but I do have a favorite invention. A few years ago, a lady patented putting pictures on toddler’s shoes…so that one half of the whole picture goes on the left shoe and the other half on the right shoe (so toddlers could stop putting their shoes on the wrong feet). Pretty smart.

    I have a pair of slippers that would be useful for. I’m always putting them on the wrong feet!
