Chindogu

12th Jan 2008

Chindōgu is the Japanese art of inventing ingenious everyday gadgets that, on the face of it, seem like an ideal solution to a particular problem but in reality create many new problems. PingMag has a great feature with lots of hilarious examples of Chindogu, including a toilet-paper hat for hayfever sufferers, a set of special handicap paddles for table tennis and shoe umbrellas for keeping your shoes dry in the rain.
