geeksugar sees its fair share of weird, wild, and wacky products — useless USB products come to mind — but do you ever think about its birth?
Somebody had to submit a patent for it, sketch it out, and someone else looked at it and approved it. Whether these inventions get made or not, Patently Silly has a compilation of patent submissions that may or may not be made.
I'm totally feeling like Seth and Amy's "Really?!" segment on SNL's Weekend Update for some of these— sketches for stuff like the Cross USB Drive, the hiccup-treatment device (pictured) and then there are the silly but sort of good ideas, like the weed-whacking golf club (which is all I can do with a golf club, by the way).
You know, I would so love to see the sketch of the patent for the USB humping dog.
