More Inventions

In July I posted pictures of some inventions [1] that showed great creativity. Today's post is the next installment of inventions. Some of these may make you wonder why anyone would even think of making something like that, but some may find you saying, "I've gotta have one of those!"

We'll start off with something that Lego fans may find irresistible — Lego earrings.

Have you ever been at a reception or gathering where almost everyone has to stand around, holding both food and beverage? If you have, you know that that balancing act makes it very difficult to eat. The Go Plate is the perfect solution.

The Go Plate allows you to nest your soda can or bottle in the middle of the plate from the bottom whereby you can hold both in one hand, freeing up the other hand for eating.

They cost a little over $1.00 each, but they look as though they may be washable for reuse at the next get-together.

I wonder if it would work with a non-roll Coke can.

Beverage containers with interesting shapes seem to be something on the minds of several inventors.

This past summer I did a post on toasters [2]. Here's a toaster I would love to have.

Continuing with the food theme, here's a sandwich that looks as if it would be as much a challenge as the toy that inspired it. It's called a Rubik's Cubewich.

That verson of the "sandwich" is made of pastrami, kielbasa, pork fat, salami, and two types of cheese.

You can grow pears in the shape of little Buddhas, though I'm not sure why anyone would want to.

The next two inventions, though inedible, are inspired by food.

These "Cookeys" would probably remain crisp and chewy no matter how much they're dunked.

I wonder how you would smell after using this soap.

Here's an interesting piece of baby clothing.

When a crawling baby wears that outfit, the child becomes a Baby Dust Mop.

What the following item is may not be immediately evident.

It's a neat design, but I cannot imagine anyone finding them comfortable or keeping them on while walking.

Speaking of cool designs, here are several pictures of a "ribbon staircase" I'm not sure I would like to use, especially in the dark.

That staircase is apparently of Czech design [3].

There are a number of kinds of toilet paper available with the pictures of various politicians who consider themselves worthy of being in a throne room.

Do any of these inventions grab you? I look forward to reading your comments on some of them.

I haven't posted a picture of our grandson Drew recently. The other day, our daughter Megan did a blog post about her family's first pumpkin carving experience. Here's a picture of Drew enjoying the process.

Did you ever go into an antique shop and ask, "What's new?"
