Top 10 inventions you never knew existed – Part 2
Dear funny friends, we are back with our top 10 inventions you never knew existed. Let’s see what people more inventive and definitely out-of-the-box (any… box, really) have had in store for a life more colored if not necessarily more smart and accessible!
8. Cars have been a great part of over lives for about a century or so, though it does seem that they have been around forever (or at least for a much longer time than just a century). Anyway, soon after Ford’s T model became a household name, imaginative people started thinking of innovations. Some have actually come up with constructive ideas and put them to practice, while others inventions have got lost in the mists of the past. Poetic as this night sound, some ideas are best off left there… right? Well, I really don’t know what to say about this inventive aqua car prototype. And I’m not thinking of a hydrocar, the ones you see at the seaside, where people need to paddle in the water to propel the water car. Nope! The aqua cars as they were imagined about half a century or so were regular cars most of the time… well, up until they hit a mass of water, like a lake or an ocean. At this point, you would literally drive the car through the waters!
If you ask me, there are more practical car-related inventions you should know exist, such as car rental online options.
7. In 1876, a Virgil A. Gates (probably no relation with Bill Gates) patented an invention that would not make it to fame like the smashing Microsoft: the mustache shield. The purpose of this invention? To shield the gentleman’s facial hair under a textile cover to prevent it from getting soiled while eating or drinking.
