The Most Bizarre And Unnecessary Tech Innovations
It is an undeniable fact that tech innovations usually change our lives for good, to the point in which we ended up getting used to so far that we remember how was everything before like something prehistoric. However, even when most of these new products are incredible, there are many others that are so strange that ended up being something funny and weird instead of amazing. Here are the most bizarre and unnecessary that you can find right now.
A Bluetooth-Equipped Tampon That You Will Have To Tie To Your Waist
This is literally a tampon that will be anchored to your waist with some kind of electrical cord every single minute. As you might see, the product my.Flow is totally pointed to feminine customers and provided one of the most bizarre, craziest and unnecessary tech inventions in the history.
This is not a joke, the 6 to 12-inch cord is used for connecting the tampon to a Bluetooth device, which is actually the upgraded version of what it was originally meant to be, which was a tampon that already had the Bluetooth inside it, but most women didn't want to wear because most than obvious reasons that don't need it to be explained.
The goal of this product was to provide how full the tampon is once you´re using it, by an app already connected to the Bluetooth that would show this awkward information on your smartphone. There´s no need to say why this was something that hasn't meet expectations and everyone sees as something extremely weird.
A Bottle Opener That Sends A Message To Your Friends Each Time You´re Having A Drink
There´s no way to start with a preamble on such weirdness, so let´s say that this subtitle is basically the reason why this tech innovation was created, even if it seems as some weird joke from Family Guy. This device called BOx was developed by Kickstarter and consists of a metal and wood design that has some kind of smart board that uses Wi-Fi so you can connect with your pals, so once you open a bottle of beer, your friends will get a message.
The most bizarre aspect of this rare innovation is that Kickstarter also offers the option of getting this device without the Wi-Fi, but you will have to pay $19 if you want to have it in order to never show never show your drinking problems to your bros. Also, another weird aspect about BOx is that it will give you points and unlock levels based on drinking more than your pals. Oh, but of course, it also tells you not to drive once you have opened enough bottles.
The Most Bizarre Fake Tongue For Licking A Cat
This is not a lie, there´s a product that consists of a pacifier that at its end have a giant weird-looking rubber tongue, with which you can caress the cat´s body. Yes, an adult human doing this with a product called LICKI Brush that looks like ugly sex toys came out from Silent Hill 2 to a poor animal that would probably feel like there´s something extremely wrong happening in its life.
This disturbing innovation was also created by Kickstarter, which for some unknown wanted to make a product that mimics a cat´slick so you can give this little animal the same love gesture that he usually does. Don´t worry, there´s an official reason: to offer a meditative practice, soothing not only for the cat but also for you. It is a product that was apparently designed to feel pleasurable to the cat´s sensitive skin.
Probably the worst detail about LICKI Brush is that Kickstarter actually stated that the best way to use the product is by slowly approaching to your cat when she is sleeping, which makes the whole situation officially creepy and extremely wrong. But there´s more: it also stated in a very happy way that you can invite your families and friends and their cats over for a cute LICKI party. Far from saying something about it, I just invite you to think about that situation, since you would know by yourself why this is the most bizarre tech innovation right now.
