10 Weirdest Portable Stuff

1Portable Toilet

Japan-based Niban Too Corporation invented a briefcase that doesn't only holds those all-too-important reports, but your day's waste as well. The Gotta Go Briefcase is an invention designed to maximize efficiency in the fast-paced world of Japanese business. Constructed with Mahogany leather and a stainless steel toilet bowl, this time-saving invention includes a toilet paper dispenser that can be hidden underneath the padding, which complements the privacy panel on the opposite side for maximum bowel evacuation efficiency and privacy.

Accessories include a cup holder, hand sanitizer with refillable dispenser, and a vanity mirror, because vanity is important when you're doing your business in a public area. The maximum supported weight of the briefcase is 175 pounds, so portlier Japanese businessmen may still want to utilize public facilities to prevent it from breaking and contaminating everything. This invention begs the question, however: Where does the waste go when you're done?

2Portable Karaoke Machine

Can't stop singing? Then this is the perfect gadget for you. The "Hi-kara" karaoke machine, by Takara Tomy, is a 7-cm (nearly 3-inch) cube which weighs less than a pound and works like a real machine. Once the singer selects a song, which can be downloaded off the Internet or from special music cartridges, the lyrics come up on a 2.4-inch display. The machine also has headphones and speakers attached.

3Portable Toaster

Don't get it wrong, this cake slice looking device is actually a portable toaster. The idea is to run the portable toaster over the bread until it's done to your liking, and if you're wondering how long you've been hand-toasting that bread, an animated graphic indicates how well the bread has been toasted. But couldn't you just see that for yourself?

4Portable Fireplace

Stylish and striking, the Zeta fireplace is nothing but original. Designed by John Dimopoulos, director of Geoform, Design & Architects Firm in Sydney. The EcoSmart Zeta fireplace is so-named because of its elliptical shape and its Greek ‘origins'. A clever fusion of timber, leather and stainless steel, the portable Zeta fireplace sits on a brushed or polished stainless steel swivel base. The plywood body of the fire is shaped from a high frequency heated aluminium mold into the perfect elliptical shape. A ventless stainless steel firebox insert is moulded to the internal face of the plywood, as the outer surface is upholstered in leather. The toughened glass screens that sit either side of the fire enhance the stunning visual effect created by the flame.

5Portable Microwave Oven
