More Description

Back by popular demand Following the massive success of 101 Unuseless Japanese Inventions, 99 more specimens of the art of Chindogu to amaze, confuse, and entertain.

Chindogu is the Japanese word coined for the art of the unuseless idea -- weirdly logical designs for living that have taken an unsuspecting world by storm. Meant to solve the niggling problems of modern life, these bizarre and logic-defying gadgets and gizmos have a tendency to fail completely -- but also heroically, magnificently, and hilariously.

Addicts of the unuseless will love this collection of brand-new Chindogu, including the Eat 'n' Exercise (no one cares about calories when you exercise as you eat), the Drymobile (your laundry dries as you drive), the Solar-Powered Torch, and many, many more....

"Chindogu is the Chaos Theory put to everyday use. Funny but subversive. Ordinary but surreal. Brilliant but boneheaded.... Once word gets around, stand back". -- John Barry, Knight-Ridder
