  感谢发明家,让我们的生活如此便利,但是并不是每一项发明都值得庆祝,比如下面的发明。

  Creative types often dream of coming up with the next must-have gadget that will earn them a fortune.

  爱创造的人总是梦想着发明出能够让自己大赚一笔的必备神器。

  But innovation isn't always something to be celebrated, if these ridiculous inventions are anything to go by.

  但是发明并不总是值得庆祝,如果以下这些令人哭笑不得的发明也算发明的话。

  People have been sharing examples of the most preposterous devices online, from a machine that pets your dog so you can save yourself the trouble to shoes with ready-painted toenails for when you're feeling lazy.

  人们在网上分享了最荒谬的发明,从爱抚狗狗的机器到让你偷懒的“涂好指甲油”的鞋子。

  Others have tried to revolutionise trusty kitchen gadgets such as the pizza cutter with very dubious results, while someone invented a fan that attaches to your chopsticks or cutlery to cool down food that's too hot.

  其他人还试图彻底改变可靠的厨房用具,比如效果可疑的披萨切割刀,以及固定在筷子或刀叉上的扇子,用来吹凉太烫的食物。

  Fashion isn't safe either with the invention of a tape measure belt that shows how trim or otherwise your waistline is and 'underpants' for your hands.

  连时尚也不能幸免。有人发明出了显示腰围的腰带,还有人给双手发明了“内裤”。

  Who wants a pet that you can't pet? Apparently thought there's a market for a device aimed at people who can't be bothered to stroke their dogs

  如果你不能爱抚自己的宠物,那养宠物做什么?显然,发明者认为有这样一群人连自己的狗狗都懒得抚摸。

  If it ain't broke! Most have a pizza cutter in their drawer for a very good reason and those that don't can just use a knife

  如果厂家不破产的话,多数人都很有理由在自己的抽屉里备上一把披萨切割刀,如果没有的话,你可以直接用一把普通的刀来切披萨。

  Gained at Weight Watchers this week? Why not advertise your disappointment to the world with a belt that keeps track of your waistline

  Phones can now play music, take photos, run countless apps and apparently give you a shave in the mornings
