I look at these new upgrades and ask, “what for?”

Unnecessary technological upgrades, crazy new technology, needless gadgets, newest technology, Japanese innovation

There is so much to discover and so much to improve in our human lives that drives technological upgrades. Just for instance, the emerging tablets are shoving off the laptops for improved portability and accessibility.

One may perhaps argue that upgrades are directing towards a progress or improvement; after all it says UPgrades. But the following technological upgrades aren’t really necessary; rather, they cater to the human drives of laziness and lavish spending.

The Japanese is the leading proprietor in robot invention. And an addition to their inglorious robotic scene is a toilet that you can talk to, ask for a joke or even tell the weather while you poop. Apparently, the Japanese people needed to spice up their pooping activity. But for the rest of us, this is our childhood nightmare.

By all means, if you are willing to dispose a $850 for a wallet, then buy Dunhill’s wallet for men that boasts fingerprint security. But for the thrifty ones, you really don’t need to waste money on a wallet. Wallets are put in the back pocket of a man’s pants, where it usually get seated. It gets crushed and squashed. Although it is appealingly cool that only you can access to your cash, thieves will just stole the wallet itself and grant themselves a fortune.

Think left and the bike steers left. Think right and the bike also obeys. Welcome to the first ever boring bicycle, where all you have to do is pedal. Come on, steering is where the exhibition and all the fun is in a bicycle. We get the breakthrough in mind-reading technology, but not this way – you take the essence of riding a bike.

There’s nothing the gold encrusted Wii can do that my normal Wii cannot do. Oh wait, the golden Wii makes the owner foolishly arrogant but wealthy.

I know some guys are having tough times dislodging a lady’s bra, but with chastity bra, there’s no way he can un-bra her. Chastity bras come with a padlock. You don’t need this because (a) guys can be smart when in need, we’ll just use scissors to cut your bra, (b) sex happens south, and (c) chastity means controlling your urges not locking your hooters.

I don’t know why they have to invent an LED-enabled ruler. If there is no light and you need to measure the length of something, just open the freaking fluorescent lights! There is a reason why Thomas Edison persistently tried thousands of filaments in coming up a light bulb – to be used!

You can’t leave your favorite song for a swim? Anything can be  best and worst for something, and music is worst underwater.
