Chindogu master Kenji Kawakami demonstrated some of his celebrated "unuseless" inventions on a recent Nihon TV variety show.

Kawakami shows off the following chindogu: shoe umbrellas that keep your toes dry in the rain (but admittedly make it difficult to walk), the Driver-Drier golf club which lets you dry laundry while practicing your golf swing, a portable subway strap consisting of a ring attached to a toilet plunger that sticks to the ceiling of the train, pachinko ball collection shoes that let you inconspicuously pick up as many as 200 stray pachinko balls simply by walking around the parlor, and a comfortable cafe chair and table on wheels for coffee drinkers on the go.
