12 cool inventions from the past that look hilariously odd now

These inventions from 100 years ago were mind-blowing for their era, and today they still deserve a million likes... At least for how bizarre they look!


Keep scrolling to see a robotic vacuum cleaner from 1959, a diving suit from 1860 and more...

It’s been one hilarious journey, I’m not even kidding!


And what do you think? Which of these inventions look the weirdest today in your opinion? Would you like to use any of them?

A good pair of earplugs would do the job of the Isolator and would be much more practical and comfortable. Also appears it would be hard to see well with that thing on your head. Also I can think of a lot of worse jobs than #1.

The Navy used that camera as late as the 60’s to photograph and and grade surface gunnery exercises.

May years ago a father of a friend had a camera which was matchbox sized, he had to cut film down to fit it. And I have an old black and white TV which has very smooth lines and incorporated stand somewhat like the one shown - only useful as an ornament now or in a museum.

Love the emerald pocket watch🤗 Glad we don't have to haul a camera that size around today! Great inventions, very interesting thank you. Love to come back in 100 years and see what we use today will be obsolete - also what it's replaced with!

We can all laugh now at some of these devices but they were precursors to some of the gadgets that we have & use today. I wouldn't mind having that Philco tv now. I think it looks cool & I love the swivel arm. I will admit that some of these were pretty bizarre like the 20 foot long gun or the giant camera. I wonder if 100 years from now someone might be looking at the things we use every day & laughing at them.

The old gentleman appears to have a cover for his old gentleman. Budgie smugglers on the beach beware
