This Guy Built A Ceiling Fan For His Car Because Why Not?
The universe is full of mysteries. Black matter. Extraterrestrial life. The Range Rover Evoque Cabriolet. Thanks to Reddit, we have another mystery to add to our ever-growing list: ceiling fans in cars. Yes, you read that right. No, that doesn’t make sense.
Unfortunately, there isn’t even a background to offer on this unlikely idea. There is a clue to the origin story of this car fan – it comes from a person with the appropriate name of Useless inventions on multiple social media accounts. It’s also the username listed with the aforementioned Reddit thread, so yeah, there you go.
We can also say with some certainty that this three-bladed fan was fitted in a fourth-gen Subaru Outback, judging by what we see from the interior of the car. If you think that doesn’t leave much room for passengers, you’re not wrong. Fortunately, the fan spins slowly and the blades have all the sharpness of a drunken old politician tweeting at 2 a.m. It’s also completely unnecessary in the real world. The fan is too.
In this regard, then, it is really a completely useless invention, but is it really? We spent 30 seconds going through the 2,000+ comments in this Reddit thread to gauge the opinions of others. An appointed editor Goshawk artfully pointed out that the windows are noisy and the air conditioning uses more fuel, which makes the fan an efficient choice. Take the concept to the next logical step, Redditor akak1972 wants the fan for a convertible. Akak1972, this is an amazing idea and we think it would be exceptional in your Range Rover Evoque droptop.
Browse YouTube and Instagram pages for Useless inventions, we are greeted with all kinds of ideas that are just as brilliant and absurd. The world’s smallest rolling suitcase stands out as a key item for travelers, and how can you do not enjoy the Tesla rooftop cup holder? You know you’re going to accidentally leave your iced coffee on the roof anyway. Maybe leave it in a cup holder too, so maybe when you remember it a mile away it’s still there for the most part.
Friends, we need more inspiring ideas like this in the world.
