Is anyone really convinced that the iJoyRide mains-powered horse-simulator is an “exercise” machine? The least they could do is market it with a few swap-in attachments and a washable cover.

The iJoyRide is a winner in this year’s UK Landfill Prize Top Ten.

Other finalists include the six-bladed (yes, there’s another on the back!) Fusion Power Stealth razor from Gillette, the Hammacher Schlemmer Infant Care Timer, and a Brass Pocket Sundial.

What would you nominate?

  1. At least the brass sundial would be likely to keep working (although why you’d bother is the obvious question).
    There are so many many things, including quite a few items of plastic crap from my son’s toybox, that have ‘landfill’ written all over them. I don’t know where to start.

  2. Heh.
    I think the slightly cross-eyed expression on that young woman’s face is a dead giveaway.

  3. Never have to leave the house again esp when its snowing and Rob’s away.
    When I was a teenager and riding my horse almost daily I did have thighs of steel.
    Maybe I should get one.

  4. Anyone else thinks it looks like a toilet?

  5. That brass sundial is actually quite cool. Pointless, but it looks to have had a high production standard, and it’s not in the same league of shit as the baby timer.
    Six bladed razor? They’ll have to start designing bigger chins soon. (That is until we reach Peak Shaving Oil).
