    Yes! using the dangerous looking electric pan as a bathroom heater is a brilliant idea.

    Who would of thought of using an electric skillet as a space heater? Some of these ideas astound me.

    I’d love to have the all-mechanical “robot” alarm clock, except in a model that looks a bit less squared-off and more steampunkish.

    If someone had asked me when sectional furniture was first developed I’d have been of by a few decades.

    I’ve seen one of those radio stoves but it no longer worked- the tubes were coated in several years of grease.
