9. USB-Powered Butt Cooler
Here’s another strange Japanese gadget: the USB-powered butt cooler. This device also doubles as a seat cushion and works by blowing “cool air onto your arse via the on-board fan.
The only draw back is if you let one go, the air cooler will blow it up right into your face.
10. Bra That Doubles As Shopping Bag
Triumph Japan has unveiled a bra that doubles as a shopping bag; named the “Kawaii Bag”. When the bra is being worn, the “shopping bag” portions are folded away inside the bra cups, where they serve as extra padding. The bra quickly converts to a shopping bag by removing the bag portions from the cups and connecting the hooks on the bra’s underwire. The lace cups serve as decoration along with the shoulder straps, which are disconnected and tied to the top of the bag as ribbons.

14. Head Bath Cap
If you’ve been waiting for a cap that gives your head/hair a good bath than the solution is here. Presenting the “Head Bath” cap, just place it over your head and let water start running into it. This thing not only looks funny but supposedly “helps your hair grow faster and fuller” by penetrating the pores in your scalp with the trapped water.
15. USB Humping Dog
My favorite, this little pooch has a USB port, slip it into your USB port and it humps your computer like there is no tomorrow. It seems that humping your USB port is the only point to this doggy; he has no redeeming qualities like built in flash memory.
Here is a nice video that shows the dog in action:
