Brilliant and weird are basically two sides of the same coin. Think about it: Ludwig van Beethoven was an incredible composer and pianist — he also reportedly dipped his head in cold water to stay awake. Nicola Tesla, another great mind, curled or 'squished' his toes 100 times a day to boost his brains cells. In fact, many renowned geniuses had odd habits or were perceived by others as 'strange.' But the truth is, bizarre and brilliant go hand-in-hand and these inventions on Amazon prove it.

Amazon is a mecca for online shopping. If you can buy it online, you can probably buy it on Amazon. And that means the site is a treasure trove of weird and wonderful inventions.
