As a nation, we are getting fatter and fatter, and technology is getting more advanced year after year. The two kind of balance each other out which in turn makes us become lazier than we should necessarily be.
What also adds to us being lazy is everyone wanting to invent something to try and make money. Sure, we wished we bought loads of domain names back in the 90s, or we wish we had the idea for Facebook. But you would think people wouldn’t buy into half of the following products, but they are. What we have to say to you is: Get your ass out off your ass-printed sofa and stop being lazy. I am sure if we had invented one of these top 10 products then we would think differently though.
We blame the guy who invented the escalator. Back in the day when we had to walk up stairs (yes, you actually had to walk up them) we were a lot more active. We even enjoyed “walking” and we even had cleaning devices called Hoovers.
The Self-making Bed
Making your own bed, ain’t nobody got time for that! Many days have we woken up and thought to ourselves what’s the point in living as we had to make our own bed, but then we realised that is what the other half is for. You will also notice that the video is actually sped up. We are not sure about you, but 20 seconds to make the bed ourselves, or buy a robot that will make it in 5 minutes?
That’s right! I ain’t gonna burn those extra calories while I cut out my coupon from the newspaper. Here’s an idea: You need to place your fingers like you would use a manual pair. With just minimal effort, all you need to do is press the blades together. Then again, we have used conventional scissors before and we know how much of a workout you get – our forearms are huge.
Urinal Assist Robot
When you are taking a leak and the robot decides to go terminator on your ass then you only have yourself to blame. The product cannot even be classed as a product for people with a disability (no hands) as they still need to be able to take their trousers off. Plus, if you had one in your own house you know it wouldn’t be long until you and the robot got up to some freaky things.
Although the Power Laces aren’t a physical product and are a guy’s side project in his garage we still decided to add them to our lazy products list. You know in a few years time these bad boys will be in all good shoe retailer and we kind of want a pair. If you have seen the move Back to The Future then you will know why. Although, that huge looking battery/circuit board on the back isn’t the best eye pleaser. Plus you know you are going to get an electric shock the first time a rain drop accidently brushes past one of your shoes.
Self-Scooping Litter Box
If you buy a cat then please look after it. Fair enough, a dog is a lot of work, but cats entertain themselves 23 hours of the day. All you need to do is feed it and clean its litter tray, but now you only need to feed it, it seems. As much hard work as it seems as it does take a whole 5 minutes to empty your cat’s litter tray and add new cat litter, get it done – it just seems way too much to take on doesn’t it?
The name is Asahi Robocco and it’s one of the laziest yet most awesome inventions we have ever seen. On one hand you need to appreciate how clever the robot is to be able to present a can, open it, then pour it; but on the other hand, you need to think that times are hard when you can’t be bothered to pour your own glass of beer.
The official name is: Animal-Powered Debris Removal System and in theory the product “should” work. Simply attach the pads to the dog and as the dog walks it cleans your house. There are just a few issues that we have: 1 – Our dog does nothing but sleep all day; it ain’t going to be doing any cleaning. 2 – If the dog goes outside it’s going to bring dirt back in with it and 3 – How about getting off your own ass and plugging the hoover in?
The computer mouse was a great invention. The use of 2 simple buttons (a left and right click) and a controllable arrow that you navigate by moving your mouse around makes using a PC a lot more efficient. However, someone thought that the time it takes to use a mouse needs to be reduced as it just takes up way too much time to operate. After all, you need 3 years in Computer College, 2 years in Computer Uni and a mouse licence just to be able to hold one.
The Hawaii Chair
We totally agree that a huge chunk of the population have office related jobs or jobs that entail sitting down for most of the day, but there is no way in hell that you are able to use a computer while your ass is spinning at 60mph! Also, if you want great looking abs, do what everyone else does and actually put in the hard work and start performing sit ups and eating less.
As lazy as the Roomba is (come on, you know you’re lazy when you can’t be bothered to hoover your own house) we kind of want one so we can watch it go about its business. As much as we know it would literary take the little guy 2 weeks to hoover the living room, we can’t help thinking that we would actually name him and intentionally plant crumbs to see how smart it was.
If you have/want any of these top ten products for lazy people then consider yourself lazy! It won’t be long until you are being spoon fed your dinner and you have hired help to wipe your own ass.
