8 Of The Most Pointless Inventions Ever Invented

There are loads of inventions that have proven extremely useful and have changed lives, such as the wheel, the phone, the nail, the light bulb, the internet and penicillin, to name just a few. But for every invention that improves our way of living and makes our lives more comfortable, there are plenty that are so pointless they should never have been invented in the first place. Have a look at these 8 pointless inventions and see what you think.

Can you believe someone went and actually invented umbrellas for shoes? Though to be fair, a lot of people with prized shoe collections would probably want to protect their precious shoes from the horrible effects of the rain.

This one might come in handy for those who are inseparable and can’t stand being apart from each other. A problem arises when you’re wearing one of these with someone else while out and about and one of you needs the toilet…
