Strange:- Lavatories that are hard to believe exist and are being owned

There are amazing inventions all over the world, our youths are coming up with great ideas. Some ideas are so common that it's hard to believe they began as a scrawled notion on paper and then a patent application filed with, say, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

Aluminum foil, adhesive bandages, the ballpoint pen, the computer mouse, and the microwave oven are just a few instances of brilliant concepts that have evolved into essential goods that we now take for granted.

Nonetheless, it's likely that just half of the 520,277 patent applications filed with the USPTO in 2010 will be granted patents, and even fewer will become commercial successes.

For every new gadget that becomes a household name and changes our lives, thousands more languish in patent office files, unappreciated except as curiosities.

Some of them are brilliant, but they have fatal flaws. Others are far too bizarre to ever gain widespread acceptance. Some people are simply ahead of their time.

Inventions are very helpful because some such as cars helps in making transportation easy, robots also assist and most machines helps in making tasks easier and faster.
