When it comes to inventions that nobody needs, there are plenty of items out there in the world. Some of these inventions are unique to the culture they service. There are some inventions that are uniquely American and other inventions that people only think of being German, or European or even Canadian. There are also some inventions that are known as being uniquely Japanese and it appears there are some of these inventions that stand out from the crowd as being incredibly strange. These items are meant to make a Japanese person’s day that much better but we have to wonder if these things ever sell and who in the world would really go looking for them. Check out our list of 10 of the most bizarre inventions that came out of Japan and let us know if you’d buy any of them.
The Liberation Wrapper
This little device is actually supposed to be used by Japanese women to hide the fact that they’re eating. This might be the creepiest thing, for a range of reasons, we’ve ever seen.
The Rage Bottle
This bottle is supposed to be used so Japanese people can yell and scream when they’re angry, without anyone hearing them.
Freddy Krueger Special
These are gloves that apparently take a swiss army knife to a new level. The gloves have all kinds of tools on them including utensils so you can eat your meals using them.
A Portable Lie Detector
We have a hard time believing this thing actually works. Apparently it’s supposed to light up if someone is lying.
This little invention is supposed to allow you to carry everything you need in your tie. We wonder just how heavy the tie actually becomes when you do this.
The Bed Desk
We’re not entirely sure how in the world that laptop is being held in place, but this desk is supposed to allow you to do your work while you’re laying in bed.
The Thumb Extender
This little device is apparently for people who have small hands and large smartphones. The extender is geared towards allowing people to use their large smartphones with one hand.
The Voice Trainer
One of the most sexist inventions you will ever come across, this thing is supposed to train Japanese women to have a quieter more pleasant voice. Just … wow.
The Face Muscle Wrap
This mask is supposed to actually build up the facial muscles. The woman in the photo isn’t surprised, she’s working her face muscles. Really.
Pillows Shaped Like Women’s Laps
If you’re one of those guys that naps best when you’re laying in the lap of your lady, then these pillows are for you. We have to give these guys some props for admitting they have this issue.
