Inventions that turned out to be pointless or just plain dangerous.

From Ben Franklin to Bill Gates, the world is filled with all sorts of geniuses and creative minds who have produced more than a few inventions. Often, inventions like the lightbulb and computer operating system really do improve our lives. We think of these as good inventions. However, for every good invention you can guarantee that there are a bunch of absolutely awful creations. Some of these don’t make it past the prototype stage – thankfully. Every now and then, however, one slips through and unleashes itself upon the unwitting public. More often than not, these bad inventions are merely nuisances or totally pointless. For instance, there are medications that are merely ‘snake oil’ or toys that people spent a lot on and turned out to be pretty bad. Yet, there can be the odd creation that is actually a major health and safety concern. Disturbingly, as you’ll see, some of these terrible and unsafe inventions can stay on the market for years, or even decades, before they are eventually pulled by the authorities. See how many of these you agree with.

    thanks for your interesting video. All forms of soda are very useless. Segway and hover boards are useless. As was the baby walker,  (which caused dangerous developemental delays in kids).

    The Smart Phone, possibly the worst thing next to nuclear weapons. Causes extreme social media addiction, distractions and retards interpersonal development.

    New coke wasn't supposed to be good. Coke made it so they could transition from normal coke that had sugar to coke classic that had high fructose corn syrup without people noticing

    Yeah, but what most people don't know, is Coca-Cola deliberately made New Coke taste bad, as a marketing campaign, to combat the Pepsi marketing campaign about the taste of Pepsi.
