Craziest Japanese Inventions

The Japs have proved it time and again with their fascinating (and err…absurd) inventions! They are creative, they hate to imitate others’ work and they are fast.
Yet not every invention needs to be a piece of genius. Let’s take a look at what’s hot and what’s not:

1. Subway Chin Rest

Taking a long ride back home and no place to sit n take a power-nap? The Japs got that fixed with the Subway Chin Rest. What's it, you ask? It's a tripod with a cushion on the other end, and well, you rest your chin on it and pray that your weight doesn't topple yourself!

2. Subway Hat

The only time we see people use plunger in places other than a sink or a barfing poop-station is in cartoons, or gore movies. The Japanese on the other hand innovated it to a whole new level. Attach it to a hard-hat and you are sorted for your well-deserved Subway sleep. Oh, and it also comes with a notifier to let fellow passengers notify you when your station comes.

3. Butter Stick

This is the work of a genius! Pointless in our beloved country, for it may melt in your pocket and make you feel buttery inside, yet, it is one awesome invention! The simplicity of a gluestick combined with the awesomeness of butter completely eliminates a butter-knife, and for real butter aficionados, they can apply it as lip balm and have buttery lips for life!

4. Umbrella Tie

We have no idea how anyone could come up with that, but then again, they're Japs. A tie which doubles up as an umbrella, or an umbrella which doubles up as a tie. No need to keep your hands tied down by carrying one everywhere, just hang it around your neck, use it, and hang the completely wet umbrella back around. Sheer brilliance!

We love Bacon, we love barbequing, and we love everything USB. Someone heard our prayers and made just the right thing! Albeit, in a gravely wrong way. A USB BBQ sounds brilliant, and should work the way it sounds. Unfortunately it fails at few million levels. For starters, it needs "30" USB ports, for which you would need 5 USB PCI cards. It will still keep the computer running, thankfully, but the size of the grill will allow a user to barbeque 10 grams of meat! Overkill, isn't it?

6. Ear Cleaning Device With Video Camera

Our creativity pushes us beyond the realm of a person's reach, and takes us to places undiscovered. This device does just that. Yes, at last we can all peek into our earholes and see how the wax is getting lovingly scrubbed from the insides, and maybe take a look at our spaghetti brain too! Just a tip for the users, it can also be implemented for nasal cavity servicing as well! Rejoice!

7. Girlfriend Pillow

We've seen the boyfriend pillow, and it's adorable in its own cheesy way. This time around the Japs pushed their luck a bit too far and came up with this genius of an invention aptly titled the 'Girlfriend Pillow'. This is creepy, and now we leave you with the absurd thought-pattern of Japanese men and scar you for life.
