The Japanese are always ahead of the world when it comes to inventions. Mostly, these inventions are beneficial, but sometimes, they don’t make any sense. This is where Japanese Chindogu steps in. Since most of you won’t be familiar with this word, Chindogu is the Japanese art of inventing silly gadgets that help solve everyday problems. Some of these inventions aren’t entirely useless, but using them in public will definitely make you look silly. Take a look at some weird but brilliant inventions only Japan could have thought up.
No matter how big your umbrella is, raindrops always find a way to drench your shoes. Tired of this, the Japanese introduced a product that would get rid of this problem for good. They invented shoes with umbrellas attached to the toe. The umbrella shoes not only keep the rain away but also protect the shoes from dirt. Now, it may not be the most attractive shoe in the world, but everything works as long as you’re doing it in Japan.
Is it hard for you to spread butter on soft bread or warm bagels? Worry not! The Japanese have come up with a new invention that will make spreading butter as easy as pie. The roll-up butter stick not only makes the chore easy but also minimizes waste and keeps your fingers clean and protected from hot surfaces. So, ditch those butter knives and get your hands on this glue-stick-looking butter. It’ll surely get rid of all your buttering problems!
Rain is very unpredictable in Japan, and you always have to be prepared for it when going out. Carrying an umbrella along can be an actual hassle. You may even forget it at home in a hurry ending in impending doom. To overcome this problem, the Japanese came up with a genius idea. They introduced a tie that doubles up as an umbrella! You can wear the umbrella around your neck, so it goes everywhere you go. Utility aside, the invention looks pretty fashionable once you pair it with a nice suit.
