Chidogu is the Japanese word coined for the art of the unuseless idea- weirdly logical designs for living that have taken an unsuspecting world by storm. Meant to solve the niggling problems of modern life, these bizarre and logic-defying gadgets and gizmos have a tendency to fail completely- but also heroically, magnificently and hilariously. Addicts of the unuseless will love this collection of brand-new brain-tickling Chindogu.
"Chindogu is the Chaos Theory put to everyday use. Funny but subversive. Ordinary but surreal. Brilliant but boneheaded."- John Barry, Knight-Ridder
