8 Japanese Inventions that Prove They Are Way Ahead of Humanity

Weird is Japanese for Great.

Square Watermelons

The Japanese have had square watermelons since the 1980s, and it’s not (only) for weird aesthetic purposes. They had been created with the intention to fit them better inside refrigerators, and to cut them more easily without them rolling off the table.

Imagine being in the 80s and realizing all these. They really were waaaay ahead of humanity.

 

Robot Priest

Yes, you read that right. Only recently, a Softbank invented a robot that could preside over Buddhist funerals. Strangely enough, however, hiring this robot (named Pepper) won’t cost as much as you’d expect, making it the perfect choice for those who don’t have enough to spend.

Amazing how the Japanese are that advanced that they can invent a robot just for this specific purpose, instead of for something else.

 

Pedal-powered Hairdryer

We’re not entirely sure if these are being commercially sold in Japan, but the fact of the matter stays — that someone suddenly thought about creating a hairdryer which you could conveniently power via your own footsteps when you’re running late for school or work.

Sure, you’d cringe at its absurdity now, but when you think about it it’s actually pretty smart.

 

Realistic Sex Dolls

Orient Industry permanently changed the sex doll industry back in 2014 with the release of its realistic love dolls, which have caught worldwide attention since. These dolls are made with the highest quality silicon material and look completely human! You can customize them according to your preferences with hair, shape of face, bust size, and even clothing. Their joints are bendable too, so you can position them any way you want.

Now, doesn’t that sound like a dream? (You don’t need to answer that.)
