Currently at just $13.50 on eBay, the Universal Invention of the Future “can inflate helium balloons when it detects hot lava, find gold floating in the sea, or let you know when a horse wakes up with the Swine Flu.” Auction page. Video after the break.

An invention so magnificent, so unknowable, that its discovery alone could “make you feel good all over the world” without even making a bid.
