A collection of the best of Kawakami's bizarre inventions: the portable crossing - cross the street safely when and where you want; the bath body suit - take a warming bath without getting wet; and walk 'n' wash ankle-attachable laundry tanks - do your washing while walking.

The author, Kenji Kawakami is well-known in Japan for his creation and tireless promotion of "chingdogu" -- the art of the "unuseless idea." This book features the best of his inventions, inspired devices designed to solve all the nagging problems of domestic life, including ones you may not have realized you have. Reading this book is like exploring an alternate universe in which the 19th century inventors who shaped our lives had far too much time on their hands, and far too many plastic molds in their factories. Hilarious!
