Chindogu

I was introduced to this concept at a workshop ages ago (it is probably old hat by now). I have been hoping to follow it up with a project, either a student activity or perhaps something that relates to my interest in design for disability. i came across a British maker and artist Jasonmade http://www.jasontaylor.me/who is making and selling ready-made art inspired (I think) by the Chindogu http://www.tofugu.com/2012/02/20/chindogu-useless-japanese-inventions/concept. I think some of the objects are stunning. Here are some of my favourites
