Why Didn't I Think of That? The GrooveTube! 
by Lenka Reznicek [permalink] 
Sometimes, the most amazing inventions are the simplest; take the *Ronco® Showtime Rotisserie, for example (I jest).

J-Walk's Blog (a 'classic' blog, in the purest sense of the term) tips us to the GrooveTube™, a rectangular grid of transculent plastic cubes that suction-cups to your television screen (provided it does not measure more than 22" diagonal) and transforms the realistic (ok, semi-realistic) image on your TV into a soothing, pixellated ever-changing interplay of colors.

"Ooooh! Aaaah! Look at the colors!" It's probably wonderful for nurseries, sickrooms, mental hospitals and crash pads.

*Note the ad blurb next to the Showtime Rotisserie that proclaims, "I LOST 26 POUNDS IN 30 DAYS!! and other amazing weight loss stories." Someone lost 26 pounds in a month eating braces of roast chicken? What were they eating before? Pound bricks of lard?
