We live in the age of technology. So, we're bound to make some cool stuff that is kind of unnecessary, right? I mean, this stuff is totally not stuff we NEED but boy do we WANT them! Well... most of them.


1. Built-in wall extension cord

undefined

No more stupid huge orange wire running across the house.

4. Drunk person's keyhole

undefined

The designer of this keyhole would probably tell you it was made for "the convenience of a society that's always on the go" or some other bs. We all know why this keyhole was really invented though -- $2 shot night at The Drunken Scotsman.

7. Ferris wheel bike rack 

undefined

I gotta admit, this thing is pretty cool looking and I've always wanted to send my bike on a fun carnival ride. I just envision it breaking and my bike being stuck at the top, OR somebody hooking a bunch of babies onto it to make a baby ferris wheel. Yeah, it's only a matter of time before a baby ferris wheel incident happens.

What...?

9. Sleep-grading alarm clock

undefined

This wearable alarm clock tracks your sleep cycle. It doesn't really do anything to improve your sleep, but you will have the piece of mind knowing that you only got 4 hours and 19 minutes of actual sleep because of your Halo addiction and can look forward to feeling like shit at work all day.

10. Solar powered rocking chair

undefined

undefined

I'm sure these are already on the front lawn of Google, but just when exactly will your company be getting them? Never. You'll never get to use these.

11. Traffic signal hour glass timer

undefined

undefined

Wow, does this seem like a horrible idea. People already speed up at yellow and gun it at green lights, do we really need to turn traffic lights into a countdown clock for the Indy 500?

12. Wearable umbrella dome

undefined

Umbrellas have remained largely unchanged for centuries, and this umbrella pod looks only slightly less stupid than the umbrella hat. Still, the chances of wearing this and not being rejected from all social circles is minimal. Ten buck says that girl is talking to an imaginary friend on her phone because she lost all her real friends for wearing this umbrella pod.
