Matt Benedetto has a habit of designing unnecessary things.

US-based Benedetto has successfully designed many practical and useful consumer products, but in his spare time he prefers to invent ridiculous pieces that are entirely unnecessary, many of which appear to be 3D printed. He calls them “Unnecessary Inventions”.


We call them fun.

Here’s a selection of some of his more interesting — and totally unnecessary — inventions:
