This article was originally published by our friends at True Activist

Japan has always excelled at inventing things that leave people in awe. They build almost anything they can possibly think of. Here are some of the craziest inventions ever made in Japan.

Think you have seen all the amazing inventions in the world? This set of crazy gadgets will change the way you define the word “innovation”. Here are the strangest and most unbelievable Japanese inventions you probably have never encountered before. These will leave just one question in your mind: are they for real?

1. A Hand Chopper

Ever had the misfortune of cutting your finger while slicing some cheese or chopping some vegetables? Well, you don’t need to worry now. Japan has invented a hand chopper to help prevent you from cutting your hand while preparing a delicious meal for yourself.

2. A Wrap-around Shoe

Running late for work or school and have no time to tie up your laces? We have all been there. Japanese designer Masaya Hashimoto has designed just the perfect shoes for you that have no laces and instead, wraps around the foot.

3. Vending Machine That Sells Cars

The clever “vending machine” pictured above is located in Japan. You can’t really buy a smart car from it, but you can get brochures and info about the various models.

4. Air-conditioned Pants

If you work outdoors during the hot summer months, you’ll know how hard it is to find flexible and practical pants that can also keep you cool. Japan has introduced air-conditioned pants that are probably the most engineered garment on the face of the earth.

5. A Blanket That’s Placed Between A Tabletop And A Low Table Frame

This invention shouts out to all the lazy people to have their way with lying around. It also has a heat source underneath which makes it almost irresistible.

6. A Helmet Head Massager

Let this soft, pillow-like helmet and head massager hug your head, massaging away the stress of your busy day.

7. Lean-on Cushion

You don’t have to feel uncomfortable anymore if you like to lie down on the floor to do your work. The lean-on cushion gives you good support while you rest and work at the same time.

8. A Device That Allows You To See What’s In Your Ears

There’s a lot more to an ear than what you see on the side of your head. The device fits into your ear and can finally give you a full view of it.

9. An Animated Piggy Bank

The animated piggy bank is a great way to encourage your kids to save. With every coin added, it wiggles and makes a sound.

10. Napkin Pants

Napkin pants are the next big thing. Most people are too lazy to grab a paper towel, so they can just wipe their hands on their pants.

11. A Pillow Cap

On a bus or in the café, this pillow cap lets you snooze almost anywhere in the world.

12. Taxi Walker

This device not only tells you about the calories you burned while walking, but also the estimated taxi fare you saved from not opting to just hail a cab.

13. A See-through Umbrella

Using this umbrella on a rainy day will let you see your path clearly.

14. Glasses That Fog Up On One Side When It Detects You Haven’t Blinked In 5 Seconds

The action is supposed to “jolt” the eye and wake you up if you were falling asleep.

15. Alarm Earphones

Never miss a bus / train again while you’re enjoying your music or sleeping.
