Did you know there's a pickle eyeshadow palette? Or a portable toilet seat that attaches to your car tire? Neither did we. But regardless of their questionable viability, these items exist. And you can find them on the subreddit r/OfCourseThatsAthing.

Named after pretty much the only reaction people have to its content, the sub has grown to a 739K member community, and even though we at Bored Panda have already covered it before, these folks keep unearthing the most creative and weirdest products, so we have to do it again!

Scrolling through the images, it's hard to imagine someone greenlighting these ideas. David Pereira, the Head of Product Management at Virtual Identity, thinks it often happens when development gets too 'dry.'

"Products are built for people. Yet, many people lead product innovation through numbers, which means people become numbers [and] behaviors become data points," Pereira wrote. "Therefore, misunderstanding of the audience is inevitable because of too many false assumptions. Product teams that don't challenge the data become blind and build useless products."

The product manager pointed out that there's nothing wrong with being data-driven, it's just that teams need to understand when to apply numbers and when to stay away from them.

"Data will bring us insight from the past, showing details about customer behavior... However, we should not overlook the power of observation," Pereira said. "Once we observe real people using real products, insights will come to us [naturally], and [we'll be able to] understand how people use the [said] product [way better]."

Pereira is a big fan of prototyping. "I prefer accepting that [I] don't know enough; at best, [I] have a set of assumptions, which need validation as fast as possible. That's my approach for [all] ideas."

In his opinion, the Lean Startup method created by American entrepreneur Eric Ries is an excellent way of building products that solve real problems.

However, I guess it's either we have less useless stuff or more content on r/OfCourseThatsAthing. How can we possibly make this choice?!

Not stupid at all! I've been many times to a wine festival thats held outside, where you taste 80 samples at 12 stations spread around entire village. They give you similar wine glass holders so you can walk freely enjoying the day. The holder is ussualy woven rattan or fabric.
