10 Absurd inventions
« on: May 07, 2014, 05:50 »
The Isolator



The Isolator, by Hugo Gernsback: a terrifying hood with an attached oxygen tank, for when you want to be really, really isolated. “Outside noises being eliminated, the worker can concentrate with ease upon the subject at hand.”

 Stroller Radio


This stroller, equipped with an antenna and loudspeaker, was intended to help soothe babies in public places.

 Motorized Surfboard


The motorized surfboard, pictured in 1948, was an ideal platform upon which to casually stand around in a suit, smoking a cigarette. On the water.

 Pedestrian Scoop


It was thought that this scoop, mounted onto a vehicle in 1924 Paris, would reduce pedestrian casualties.

 Radio Hat

Portable straw radio hat was made by an American inventor in 1931.

 Baby Suspenders



 Amphibious Bicycle


Buoys used as bicycle wheels do not make an amphibious vehicle, but this guy tried with ‘Cyclomer‘ in Paris, 1932.

 Shower Hood


The shower hood: for those times when you want to preserve your hair and makeup in the shower, while looking as ridiculous as possible.

 Gas-Resistant Stroller


England, 1938

 Hangover Mask
