Dad Gadget Fail: Automatic Diaper Changer

February 9th, 2010  |  by  |  Published in Dad + Gadget = Fail

Now that's what I'm talking about!

Now that's what I'm talking about!

Let me begin by stating that this is a device that I wish existed (and worked), not so much for myself–JP is out of diapers–as for the great mass of poop-wiping humanity.

Think of it, ladies and gentlemen–a diaper changer that deals with the doo(doo) for you! With that in mind, I present this patent pending device invented by Zhao Guang-hui and Xu Hong-bin of Taiwan:

The rotation device includes a rotator and a supporter where the rotator connects to the body and mounts on the supporter for allowing the body to rotate relative to the supporter. The supporter is further configured at one side of the playard frame. The body can also be rotatably mounted on the playard frame by mounted the rotator directly into a shafting hole on the playard frame. With the rotation device, the diaper changer can be selectively set in a first using status for changing a baby’s diaper or a second using status for allowing a babysitter for easy holding the baby up.

Now, I grant you, this is a far cry from the remote-controlled butt-wiper shown in this illustration. But, much like early space flight (or just flinging dung), its heart is in the right place.

Make sure to check out the pdf with schematic drawings of the changing device. They are flat-out wacko. And, in that spirit, please also see this post at the world-famous Chocolate Mints In A Jar (.com) entitled “Why doesn’t someone invent that.” Selections:

  • Alarm clock with arms
  • teleporter (I already did that)
  • babysitter in a can (or closet)

Now, if only that robot could make a martini!
