Funny, History, Lists, Other, Shocking, Social, Technology, Weird

It is hard to believe the amount of progress we have made over the last two decades, especially in terms of technology. Most people in their 30’s must have definitely used a floppy disk at some point, but it feels like a product from the distant past. There are many products that have become outdated and nearly obsolete thanks to the rapid transformation the world is experiencing in the technological era. This list contains 10 vintage products that seem absolutely bizarre now, and no one would even think of buying them except for the reason that they are vintage products.

Horse Exercise

Women didn’t really get enough exercise back then because they barely left their homes thanks to all the mindless oppression. They had to settle for products such as the Vigor’s ‘Horse Action Saddle’ that promised them the experience and exercise of riding a horse without actually leaving their home.

Interchangable Handles

We came from a point in time where changing the handles on electrical appliances actually seemed like an exciting thing to do!

Sanitized Tape Worms

This product belonged to the pre-war era and it is a good thing it didn’t make it past that period. People used to actually sell sanitized tape worms as a way to get rid of fat and work on your health. You could do this by adding the tape worm to your breakfast menu.

Multi-Tasking Fridge

Another product designed to excite women into being more engaged with their house work! Why would you want to do anything productive when you have a fridge that you can cook and wash on?

Radium Suppositories

You might be wondering what on earth people used radium suppositories for. Believe it or not, it was actually sold as a product that was supposed to transform men by giving them a burst of energy and vitality. The product actually involved soluble radium that was added to cocoa butter so that it could be used as a suppository.

Solar Bath Apparatus

Have a cold? Want to feel better? What better way to do that than stick your head inside a large solar heating apparatus that was supposed to cure these minor problems. Your head would actually be doused with ultra-violet rays that was meant to clear up your ears, nose and throat (not to mention killing brain cells).

Egg Cuber

This product is a perfect example of people having very little to do back in the day. You could actually buy something known as an ‘Egg cuber’. this silly product was meant to transform your egg-shaped egg, into a cube-shaped egg. Why? Because! That’s why!

Menstrual Cup Tassette

This product was truly ahead of its time, in the sense that it should have never existed. It was a tassette meant to capture menstrual flow. They even had anatomically correct diagrams back them and used it for advertising purposes.

Scalp Massager

This extremely dangerous looking machine did the simple task of massaging your head back then. Thank god for nanotechnology right?

Wonder Sauna Hot Pants

Have you always wanted to go to the sauna but can’t find the time? Did you also want to look extremely weird but didn’t know what to wear? These wonder sauna pants are meant to provide you a sauna-like experience while simultaneously making you look like an absolute tool!
