    some were cool, some were photoshopped:

    and i believe the TP hat is PSed to, but ill let the people who have been there say if they have seen it or not. japan is the US 5 years in the future typically, so if the US has come up with pocket tissues, i think japan would have something similar if not better...

    those are probably chindogus, gadgets that actually solve a problem (you might not even know about), but are meant (obviously) as a joke. it`s like a hobby or even a sport and they are not meant for selling.

    damn... you know i think we should clarify here. a lot of things get called old that are a couple three years old.

    i think the first time i saw this was in a chindogu book in 1993. i was in high school and i loved these.. funny to see that they age as well as bill and ted`s excellent adventure.

    I don`t think that style of umbrella is even Japanese in origin. Probably most useful. Butter stick might have some use. I can see the motivation for things to help you sleep on a subway train. The others are just silly.
