10 strange (but useful) Japanese products

Posted by / July 5, 2013


If you love nothing more than perusing the late-night world of infomercials for unusual products you can’t live without, this list of Japanese products compiled by Mashable’s Brie Hiramine is a must-read.

From gadgets for your subtle afternoon snooze to reinventing the wheel when it comes to spreading butter, you may just consider emigrating to score the best deals in the world.

1. Banana holder (above) from Daiso

Have you ever experienced a squished banana at the bottom of your bag? Not fun. Not fun at all.

2. Urusakunai Kara OK! Mute Microphone USB from JTT


Admittedly, this microphone looks ridiculous. Fortunately, it is not meant to be used in public.

This gadget is perfect for belting out tunes when you don’t want to disturb your neighbors — or when you just don’t want to hear the sound of your own singing voice. (Your hairbrush can’t do that.)

Oddly useful gadgets.
