Women and Smokers Have Steadier Nerves, Device Proves (Jun, 1935)
Gee. I wonder what magnanimous lobby could have paid for that study….
Women and Smokers Have Steadier Nerves, Device Proves
WOMEN are better than men when it comes to a steady hand and certainty of aim, according to Dr. H. H. Seashore, University of Southern California psychologist. More startling, perhaps, is the discovery that tobacco-users are steadier than non-users. To carry out his experiments, the doctor employs an unique device. A pistol handle is grasped by the subject so that rays from a tiny mirror are deflected through a grid into a photoelectric cell which automatically records hand tremors.
Latest in Mechanical Household Conveniences (Mar, 1933)
Personally, I love the catsup atomizer. My only concern is that catsup is just a tad more viscous than perfume, but nah, that won’t be a problem. The hand powered hand slicer looks like a ball as well.

Reproducing the patting motions of famous Hollywood masseurs, this new vibrator keeps milady’s complexion smooth and clear. It also has many attachments for treatment of scalp and hair, and a buffer for polishing the teeth and massaging the gums which has been scientifically designed by a leading dental authority. A modulator on the motor scientifically adjusts the intensity of the vibrations for the individual complexion.
Catsup is easy to manipulate with this new sanitary dispenser. The cap, which fits over the top of the catsup bottle, is equipped with an exhaust pipe and a bulb. When you want catsup on your eats you simply point the exhaust pipe in the general direction of the grub and squeeze the bulb, whereupon a stream of the condiment shoots forth. This method eliminates the necessity of giving the bottle a severe shaking when the juice is desired.

Fan in Place of Light Bulb Makes Lamp Produce Breeze (Jan, 1955)
This is actually a really good idea. Most fans have really irritating and balky aiming mechanisms. Where can I buy one of these?
Fan in Place of Light Bulb Makes Lamp Produce Breeze
You can turn a desk lamp into a ventilating unit with a recent German invention. It’s a compact fan that screws into any light-bulb socket. The three propeller blades are plastic and the device comes in a variety of colors.
Metal Lungs Give Life (Jul, 1938)
Words I never thought I’d say: “Wow, that girl in the Iron Lung looks sexy!”
Metal Lungs Give Life
DEATH stands at the hospital bedside, waiting. Beneath the covers, a gasping youngster rights for breath. He is a’victim of infantile paralysis. Slowly, cruelly, the dreadful fingers of paralysis clutch at the chest muscles which pump the breath of life through his body. Soon those muscles will cease to function and the youngster will cease to breathe.
But death has not reckoned with the mechanical ingenuity of man.
