They say necessity is the mother of invention, which was certainly true for the wheel, but in many of the case below I’d say it’s a cross between laziness and convenience or downright boredom. For instance, what makes one invent a pear shaped Buddha mould, is that necessity? In what particular situation is that something that is called for? On the other hand GPS shoes is extremely innovative – I get that!
So while it may be a mixed bag this list offers some of the more abstract rather than innovative inventions. Although I’d give my left ear lobe for a go on Number 24.
