Technology is supposed to make our lives better and easier. However, sometimes it is really difficult to understand why to waste effort and time to invent something completely useless.

Here are the top 10 weirdest inventions of the 20th century that are certainly among the most useless too:

4. Honegar

Yes, it is vinegar and honey mixed together and is supposed to be a great energizer and cure different health problems…

5. Shower Hood
