Handy Coffee - Chindogu

Chindogu is the Japanese art of inventing ingenious everyday gadgets that, on the face of it, seem like an ideal solution to a particular problem. However, Chindogu has a distinctive feature: anyone actually attempting to use one of these inventions, would find that it causes so many new problems, or such significant social embarrassment, that effectively it has no utility whatsoever.



Behind the scenes

This Chindogu was done as a pressure project, from idea generation to final working prototype in only 2 weeks.
