Sure, inventions like the light bulb and mobile phones have changed our lives for the better. But there are lesser-known inventions out there that might be just as revolutionary if we gave them half a chance. Over the last few decades, Japanese inventors have come up with some pretty outrageous ideas, including cat mops, the  just-for-men baby nurser and butter sticks. They call these inventions "chindogu," which roughly translates to "unusual inventions."  Unusual? Definitely. Unusable in any dignified society? Probably. Take a look at 19 inventions that might make your life easier — or harder, depending on how much you care what other people think.

Story

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde
