Necessity is the mother of invention. When we need a quick solution to a sudden problem, our creativity is often limitless. Whether this creativity is improving things or bringing even more problems is another question.
We at StreetFX collected some hilarious examples of human creativity. It is up to you to decide whether these are examples of total failure or brilliant engineering success.
1. Rollerblade bike wheel
This 5-wheel bike is surely moving, but wait until the man has to turn or stop…or suddenly hits a bump.
2. Shopping cart front wheel
Another solution for an absent front wheel: this 5-wheel bike not only moves but also accommodates your supermarket purchases. But the problem of turning and occasional pebbles on the road remains.
3. Three-wheeler: a miracle of mechanical engineering
A benefit of this car is that you might be able to drive it with a motorcicle permit.
4. Tennis ball suspension lift
Stacking tennis balls inside the rear coil springs can apparently increase the stiffness and boost the stock spring rate in stock class. Is it a coincidence that there are no comments from people who tried this method?
5. This broken headlight seems to be fixed…
He got the colors right, but how will he make sure that these things don’t melt when the light is on?
