18 Cool Inventions From the Past dancing bunny
The time between the wars – the Great War and WW2 was one of great loss and uncertainty, but also one of invention, creativity and new ideas. The horrors of WWI shattered enlightenment belief that progress would continue and reason would prevail. New ideas and patterns of life developed in the 1920’s and in the way that people looked at the world.
The fast pace of technology change in the 20’s brought us the lie detector, traffic signal, bubble gum and Penicillin. An all-electronic moving-image television system somewhat similar to that used today was invented and demonstrated in 1929.
The 30’s were not less invention-intensive bringing us the jet engine, helicopter, tea bags, sticky tape, ballpoint pen and the first photocopier.
However, somewhere between these great world-changing inventions there were some fun and sometimes even hilarious inventions the world has forgotten. BoredPanda proudly presents these Cool Inventions From the Past – enjoy!
hang in there
Some of these inventions are really funny! (click link above)

giggle I think the wheel rotates on the outside. The inner ring, with the motor and the man ... stays put. Of course, if you went around with the wheel ... that might be fun, too! (Although you'd get a bit dizzy!)

Ha! You mean one of these things Sneaky?
They're called "Segways" (I couldn't remember the name for them, either.) I don't think they caught-on as big as they first thought they would. Never tried one of those, but they look like they might be fun. People DO look kinda funny on them though.
