Top five most useless inventions ever


I’m a sucker for a new gadget – and I have the debris of half-used, long-discarded items all around me to prove it. Probably class most as disappointing rather than useless – especially in comparison to the list of most useless inventions ever that’s been compiled over at top bloke’s blog Brandish.

From the Butter Stick (pictured) to the Self Saluting Hat – not a redeeming factor between them. Check out the top five over at Brandish – and if you can think of anything to add to the list, let them know. There’s got to be a top 20 out there somewhere.
