People have a lot to thank the modern scientists for. With their inventions making lives better, there’s really no amount of monetary grant can compensate their efforts. However, there are science inventions that can be classified as downright pointless, ridiculous and funny. Read on and be amused.
10. Magnetically Attached Templeless Eyewear
The inventor of this special eyewear believes that it is important to skip the temples altogether when wearing eyeglasses. Because he believes that the eyewear against the temple may cause facial creases and discomfort, he found a way to attach the eyeglasses through a magnetic device to be placed near the wear’s ears. That way, both the ears and the temples were placed out of the harm’s way. No more worries about wearing eyeglasses all the time. Come to think of it, I think he just complicated the otherwise very simple eyewear setup.
9. Curved Barrel Machine Gun
If you’re in a war, you might think owning a curved barrel machine gun is cool. For one, it allows you to shoot around the corners. But then again, you need full mind presence to realize that your gun isn’t intended for shooting straight or you might hit something else. That means you also have to bring the traditional straight weapon with you too. Maybe this gun is better used in a movie set than in a real war scenario.

6. Illuminated Tires
Goodyear actually developed these tires for the show. Invented in 1961, this premiere tire company created a special type of synthetic rubber that can be illuminated by brightly lit bulbs mounted inside the wheel rims. This is a very stylish invention indeed, although completely pointless.
5. Hair Hat
