We are about to leave 2017 in the dust, and as we move on towards 2018, it is kind of fun to look back at what 2017 ended up bringing us, specifically in new, modern inventions. There were some truly ingenuity driven things created, but there were also some things that just leave you shaking your head saying "where the hell did these people come up with these ideas, and why do we need something like this?" Either way, we will let you be the judge.
1. F. Lashes
I am going to file this one under the "what the hell" category. These electronic eye lashes change tempo and color based on the movements of your body. Seriously, sometimes I can't help but wonder if we are just taking more and more steps towards living through the hunger games, or at least their fashion choices.
2. Ta-Ta Towels
As a man I have never had a need for something like this, but based off of talking to the women in my life, this is apparently up there with sliced bread. I heard the words comfy and relaxing used more than once, and when compared to a standard bra, apparently there is no comparison, the Ta-Ta Towel found its niche and filled a big need.
3. The Romphim
Sometimes I just don't think I know enough about fashion to comment on the choices that other people are making with what they wear. But when I saw these garments hit the mainstream market, I felt self-assured enough to say that these are just terrible. Honestly, who wears one of these? I feel like it was a joke or a prank that ended up taking on a life of its own.
Some of these just get stranger as your continue down the list.
