2238 ratings | 85356 views
What are the craziest inventions from the Past? Your smartphone alarm wakes you up every morning; you check all the latest news on your tablet and rush to work in your fancy new car. Can you imagine what your life would be without all those gadgets and electronics? The 20th century was full of inventions that shaped the modern world: television, computers, airplanes, to name just a few. However, for every revolutionary discovery there were countless bizarre ideas that for various reasons didn’t take root. Today Bright Side presents sixteen of the most weird, funny and downright crazy inventions from the past. Who knows, maybe it’s time to give some of them another chance? TIMESTAMPS: Blizzard Cones 0:33 Radio Hat 1:01 The teleyeglasses 1:30 Dimple-Maker 2:17 GoofyBike 2:51 Back brush with a rear-view mirror 3:36 Shower Hood 3:50 Motorized Surfboard 4:10 Motorized Roller Skate 4:33 Hamblin glasses 5:13 Bed for reading 5:44 Folding bridge 5:55 Sauna outfit 6:18 Anti-bandit bag 6:35 Baby Suspender 6:54 Scalp Polisher 7:13 #absurdinventions #weirdinventions #inventionsfromthepast Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Before waterproof mascara was invented, ladies were offered these special masks as a way to protect their makeup from the elements. - The Radio Hat enabled its owner to listen to music and read the news at the same time. It was successful, particularly in the US, but not for long. - The teleyeglasses, as they were called, were invented by Hugo Gernsback, a Luxembourgish-American genius, in 1963. - Dimple-Maker was an invention of Isabella Gilbert from Rochester, New York, who must have been seriously concerned about her lack of dimples. - The GoofyBike had two levels and was designed for four people. As a good inventor, Steinlauf tested the bike himself, along with his family. He was sitting on the top level and steered the bike, his son was pedaling on the bottom level, and his daughter was up on the front. - The best choice for those who want to try surfing but remain dry and keep it fancy is a motorized surfboard. It was invented in 1948 by a man called Joe Gilpin. - If you choose to stay on dry land, try these classy motorized roller skates. They were manufactured in 1956 by the Motorized Roller Skate Company in Detroit. - Hamblin glasses were invented in 1936. They were designed to make it easier for people to read in bed. - Folding bridge was invented in the Netherlands by L.Deth in 1926. We are not sure if it worked that well, but it was able to hold a large group of adults. - A guy named John Rinfret invented the Anti-Bandit Bag in 1963. It was, in fact, a spin-off, since the first Anti-Bandit Bag was invented in the 1950s in the UK and used smoke to scare and stain thieves. - Jack Milford, who played ice hockey for the Wembley Monarchs team, invented the Baby Suspender. Apparently, he wanted to make his kid love ice from a very early age, so he created this carrying device.

Some of these inventions became actual products because I remember seeing ads for them in big, full-color, mail-order catalogs my Mom left around the house in the early 70's from places like Fingerhut, Hanover House and some others I can't remember the names of anymore. The catalogs made gread bedtime reading for me for all the (often) outrageous products in them and the slickster ad copy for what they were (supposedly) good for. All usually for -something.99. Yeah, she occasionally would order something out of them too. This was entertainment--until the likes of cable channels like QVC and HSN took it video (and infomercials wiped-out Saturday Morning cartoons.

Hugo Gernsback, creator of the TelEye glasses, had previously been the publisher of the first science fiction magazine, Amazing Stories, beginning in 1926. He wrote many of the stories for this and several other magazines. He also had a reputation for paying very low rates - which were seldom on time, occasionally paid by bouncing checks and sometimes didn't pay at all. However he gave many science fiction authors their first exposure.
