18 Weirdly Awesome Inventions That Only The Japanese Could Have Invented.

All signs point to one simple fact; Japan comes up with some of the most interesting inventions. Everyone already knows that they are true winners in the world of technology. But they’re also known for inventing some brilliant things. Just look at these ideas! They’re capable of changing our lives for the better... if we can get these things shipped across the pond. How these inventions haven’t become a big hit worldwide is mind-boggling. But if you saw these at a store or on Amazon, you’d probably spend your money quickly. So, check out this collection of truly unique items you can only buy in Japan.

#1. With these glasses, you’ll never waste time again taking your smartphone out to check your messages.

It sounds so sci-fi-ish but it’s real and available in Japan. Basically, you get to see text notifications, schedule tasks and so much more. You can also customize the color and the audio to alert you depending on a specific task.

#2. This adorable pooch isn’t a plush toy at all, but rather a cute robot that lets you know if you really stink.

If your odor is okay, this robotic dog will wag its little tail. But if your odor is unbearable, the dog will play dead. That’s how fine-tuned the robot’s sensors are. And honestly, we’d rather have the dog tell us before someone else does.

#3. Don’t let your eyes fool you into thinking you’re looking at a cheese grater because it’s definitely not.

It’s a butter grater. Imagine how much easier this would be every morning. You wouldn’t have to destroy your bread slice while trying to spread that cold hard butter from the fridge. This device would be a hit at the breakfast table.

#4. This nifty glove won’t only look cool at Comic-Con, but will revolutionize the way you use a mouse.

Instead of rolling a conventional computer mouse on the surface of your desk, use this glove. And if you need to right or left click on something, the power is right there in your fingertips... literally! So buy a ticket to Japan and get this now!

#5. The toilet-sink combo may sound gross, but it’s actually any eco-conscious individual’s dream come true.

It’s been around since 1956, and this is how it works. You basically wash your hands. Then, that water is used to flush the toilet. What a brilliant way to recycle water, and fortunately, the process can’t be reversed.
