10. Vibrating Toilet Seat

So here is another absolutely useless invention. It’s the vibrating toilet seat made by Johnny Henry of Laurel, Mississippi. “This invention is designed to stimulate,” he told the Laurel Leader Call newspaper. “It’s to make you feel good while you are there.” Stimulate what? Laughter.

7. Fish Training Kit

For the sad, lonely and eternally bored, at last here is a gadget to help you teach your goldfish to perform tricks. The trouble is you need friends to show off the tricks to and if you own this, you probably don’t have any.

6. Remote Headband

It’s a sad fact of life these days that we have too many TV remotes to keep track of. And who really has the space to keep more them all on the arm of a chair, or a table? With Remote Headband, you can keep your living room de-cluttered and your remotes handily accessible – AND you’ll look cool doing it.

Bloggers live and die by the keyboard, so you can imagine how many meals we eat in front of our glowing monitors. You may not know this, but your keyboard is probably the dirtiest part of your desk. So instead of placing that turkey sandwich on that clacker, place it on the keyboard food tray.

This ridiculous gadget is supposed to be ‘perfect for reading papers in the loo’. Available in broadsheet or tabloid versions, it seems you can also use it to ‘do puzzles or apply your make-up’. It ‘provides a platform for almost anything’.

The Useless Box Kit – the silliest science kit we’ve ever fallen in love with.
