Sometimes when I see cool inventions, I think (as many do) “why didn’t I think of that?!”. These weird inventions from Japan are very cool , but never really took off (cool — yes, necessary or practical — no). Upon looking at these inventions, I didn’t think “why didn’t I think of that?!”, I thought “WTF! Who thinks of that?!”. Seriously though, how weird would you have to walk to wear those umbrella shoes? Here’s an idea… don’t wear shoes that can be ruined in the rain.
Here are some pretty cool, but weird and impractical inventions from Japan that confuse and bewilder me.

Seems to me at some point Japanese inventors were really into head accessories. Wanna keep your hands free all day, but your nose is runny and you need a tissue? Strap that shit to your head and go on about your day.
What do you think about these inventions?
