The things that some people come up with aren’t always things that completely connect with us. Sometimes we have trouble understanding just why something was invented in the first place. But there is always a reason, and usually it is simply because it can be done. That might seem like a weak argument for creating something that might not become the latest and greatest gadget in the world, but it is exactly stuff like this that makes the technology in the world move forward. If it wasn’t for the fact that people keep dreaming up concepts that are utterly insane, we wouldn’t have things like the smartphone and the computer. It all boils down to the fact that we want to optimize our lives so we can do more things faster and with less effort.
The invention I am going to share with you today must have been created just because it could. It comes from the unique styled concept designer Aisen Caro Chacin, and it is ultimately weird and wonderful. It’s the Tongue Controlled Mp3 Player, and it couldn’t be more innovative. I can see a market for this when it comes to disabled people who can’t use their hands. However, I am also sure a few people out there would get a kick out of being able to play music without anyone even knowing where it came from. It is controlled by the buttons on the inside of the “gadget,” and it has pretty much the same features as any simple Mp3 player.
I think it is safe to say that this thing is definitely the WTF gadget of the day. It’s one of those inventions that once again makes perfect sense, but lacks a clear purpose, if you know what I mean. We here at Bit Rebels love to see new concept ideas, and this one has to be one of the better ones. Whether this will become the next popular gadget is of course impossible to say. I would dare to say that it will be quite some time before it will become the mainstream mp3 player on the market. I think we can go as far as saying that, but it is still a pretty brilliant gadget!
