Failed Inventions
Contest Directions: November 9 is The Inventor's Day in Europe, proclaimed by Berlin inventor and entrepreneur Gerhard Muthenthaler. The day intends to pursue the following goals:
* Encourage people towards their own ideas and for a change to the better
* Remind people of forgotten inventions and inventors.
In belated celebration of the Inverntor's Day at Freaking News let's "recall" some of the forgotten inventions and photoshop some inventions that have failed. Examples: solar-powered flashlight, waterproof towel, etc. Think of some old inventions, as well as some modern ones - e.g. modify some devices to "failed inventions".
