The ridiculous products for the people who simply cannot be bothered
Ever wondered just how much energy you could save in a day if you didn't have to stir your cup of tea or pull up your socks in the morning?
Well now you can find out with this range of bizarre gadgets designed with the super idle in mind, which have been unleashed on the U.S. market.
From Refrigerators that pour your beer for you, to slippers that mop the floor as you walk inventors with too much time on their hands have come up with ways to save even more.
Mechanical cones twist your ice cream to save on drips, while a tea bag dunker protects the wrists from repetitive strain injury.
And if going to the gym is getting you down you can always just fake it with an odd metal contraption, designed to be worn under the shirt to push flab through in a grid pattern. And voila, fake abs!
What do you get the guy who has everything? Or just doesn't like getting his hands dirty? slippers that dust the floor as you walk, of course! Just watch out for broken glass...
You know life is going downhill when you can't even be bothered to stir your own mug of tea or coffee. And what happens when you want to take a slurp? This self stirring mug is surely one of the most useless products around
Now this is just baffling. Surely all the abhancer does is imprint painful red lines on your torso? And imagine the shame if you were discovered wearing one! Nonetheless, 'Chicks dig it,' apparently...
You mean you actually hold your own book when you read, dahhhling? I'm far too important for that! The automatic book reading chair puts the reader at the perfect angle, but does it turn the page for you?
Isn't your tongue supposed to do the work of the motorized ice cream cone? Eating a scoop will never be the same again, nor as enjoyable. And what's an ice cream without a waffle cone? You might as well just have it in a bowl
This is just plain ridiculous. Surely the effort to put the sock on this weird foot-dressing device would be about equal to what it would take to just pull it on yourself? The sock buddy is one to miss
Ok this one could actually be pretty useful: How often do you ruin a banana by squiding the end when you don't quite get the right angle to open it? This one peels itself. The only hitch being that it takes 10 minutes to work
Alright so the penguin tea timer really is pretty lazy, but for the forgettful it's ideal. There's nothing more disapointing than an over brewed cuppa and this little fellow will make sure that doesn't happen to you
Uhhh... bed making. The black sheep of chores, enjoyed by nobody. But with this self-making double what would you have to moan about?
The twirling spaghetti fork looks quite frankly downright dangerous. With all that sauce-covered pasta whipping round at high speed it is surely a receipe for disaster. On the other hand no spoon equals less washing up!
This pancake machine could actually be a hidden gem among some of the more useless products, saving on mess in making what is a staple part of the all-American diet. And they stack themselves - genius!
If you're so lazy you can't face boiling an egg you deserve the solid crumbly yolk that it will inevitably yield, unlike the cooked-to-perfection innards shown on the packet
The only way this might serve a semi useful purpose is if it is programmed to pour the perfect pint. But isn't drinking out the can part of the fun anyway? Fail! Looks kind of cute though...
