Brilliant inventions that will make my life better

Will Pearson


Think you have everything you need in life? You may change your mind once you check out Delphion's Gallery of Obscure Patents.

There are a handful of these things I now realize I really really need (first three pictured above):

  • Apparatus for simulating a 'high five' - and as the patent description explains, "providing the user with a convenient outlet for the release of excitement."
  • The anti-eating face mask
  • Self containing enclosure for protection from killer bees
  • Fly swatter with sound effects
  • Gravity powered shoe air conditioner

And if the images above aren't moving, click on the title of this post to see the permalink page and you'll be blown away. Just watch that sandwich try to get into that guy's mouth. Denied!
