The strangest inventions of history

3 posts in this topic

They may not have caught on, but history's strangest inventions capture the incredible scope of human imagination.

A new collection showcases the wooden swimming costumes, photograph guns that shoot a victim whilst taking an image, and a piano you can play in bed that were dreamed up by amateurs.

The bizarre devices - which also include a mill that sends water uphill and bicycle tyres used as arm bands for swimming lessons - date as far back as the 1500s.

Some of those are beyond strange. Wooden bathing suits? I did like the powered unicycle.

The gun-camera is sensible as a training device: you can check where the gun was pointed. Use it with a live round and the hot gas leaking out of the cylinder gap would blow the camera off the gun.
