In Japan, Kenji Kawakami is famous for his tireless promotion of Chindogu: the art of the unuseless idea. Kawakami has developed an entire philosophy around these bizarre and logic-defying gadgets and gizmos, which must work but are actually entirely impractical. Created in the spirit of anarchy, unuseless inventions are not allowed to be patented or sold.Fans of the unuseless will love this completely absorbing collection of 200 Chindogu, including:the Drymobile (your laundry dries as you drive)the Solar-Powered Torch (never runs low on batteries)Duster Slippers for Cats (now the most boring job around the house becomes hours of fun--for your cat!)Walk 'n' Wash Ankle-Attachable Laundry Tanks (a perfect solution for the problems of inadequate exercise and hygiene)and many, many more.These hilarious inventions have taken Japan by storm. Every one of the 200 items in The Big Bento Box of Unuseless Japanese Inventions has actually been manufactured to the highest standards, fully tested by pioneering members of the Japanese public, and documented in their unuselessness with photographs.… (más)

A suprise birthday gift that really delighted me. There is a charming naivete about these inventions, almost entireley but not completely useless. Some seem like things I would actually like to have. Thanks, Leslie!

Bento, or I think Kawamari, is the Japanese art of creating a product that is very useful and useless at the same time. To say more will detain you from the pleasures of this book. A strange classic? ( )

How can I rate this book? It contains inventions that are incredibly silly, wacky and clever. It is a very quick read, it can be done as a flip, yet it will be guanrenteed to make you smile at least once, and probably laugh out loud. This is a great coffee table book and a great gift as well! ( )
