If you're not familiar with "chindōgu" or useless Japanese inventions rather, then you're in for a treat! Japan has been featuring highly specific products for years now and Redditors have recently discovered a selfie stick in a 1995 catalogue.
With the introduction of GoPro and it's multi functional mounts and accessories, the selfie stick has come back with a BANG with products such as the GoPole Evo, Reach and DS Monopod. We're just glad that people enjoyng these products today look a lot more impressed than the girl in this photo!
Since we know this enticed your curiousity, we've decided to collect a few "chindōgu" chems on the net to just show you what kind of cool gadgets are out there in Japanese catalogues. I don't know, I'm just super impressed with most of them, are you?
Why not put that baby to good use?
Never dose off and EMBARRASS yourself again
When a tissue packet in your purse just isn't enough
Cool down your food with a clip-on mini fan
Look good and survive when a Tsunami hits
Never cut fingers again - well, not your own at least
Be a hero and rip out that umbrella on rainy days
