Chindogu is the Japanese art of inventing silly and useless gadgets to solve an everyday problem. Translated literally, ‘Chindogu’ means valuable or priceless tool. Yes, these inventions are genius, but you would probably look pretty silly using them out in public. Actually, there are a few inventions here that I would actually use. No shame.


Here are 17 hilariously crazy and brilliant inventions only Japan could have thought up:
