30 Ill Conceived Inventions - RonO's Ramblings

Dec. 16th, 2010 02:40 pm 30 Ill Conceived Inventions

I’ve been trying to post this to Facebook for a while, but its acting up and not letting me.  So I’ll share it here with the broader audience (and hopefully to Facebook eventually).

Life Magazine has assembled a list of 30 memorable, but ill conceived, inventions.

Some familiar names, if not faces, show up at number 3, 18 and 26.

I’m wondering if the inventor of number 18 could use it with his equally small product from the early-mid ’80′s.

I actually have one of Clive Sinclair's original Microvision TVs.

Still worked, last time I powered it up a couple of years back; wonder if it's worth anything?

He produced a later model, that was a flat-ish screen device, using some rather odd visible and electron-optics.
