Hey Product Hunt! For the past two months I've been designing and creating Unnecessary Inventions to take ridiculous product ideas and turn them into a 1 of 1 fake physical item. None of the products are for sale, and it has been an outlet to expand my creativity, explore methods of prototyping, and simply make fun of the stupid products you actually see for sale online. What would be your idea for an Unnecessary Invention?1

Love this. Really funny. I sure do need some furry toilet paper, a coffee cup holder holder and a new pair of moonglasses. How about adding them?

After seeing dozens of products here, for better and for worse, I must say - this is the funniest thing I've ever seen on the internet. Shut up and take my money!
