Ultimate uselessness: The Car Projector Clock

Hong Kong's Brando strikes again.


The mad inventors at Hong Kong-based Brando are at it again, hard at work developing products of little or no use. And its latest offering ranks right up there with the MP3 stylus on the practicality meter.

As ridiculous as it may seem, the Car Projector Clock does exactly what its name indicates: It projects a digital readout on an interior surface, as seen on OhGizmo, not unlike bedroom versions that beam a display on the ceiling. You might ask why someone would need this--and, therefore, why it was created--especially when most if not all cars already have a clock somewhere on the dash. But you've got to consider the source. This is, after all, the same company that makes aromatherapy speakers and combo mouse label makers. Nuff said.
