Silicon Valley's Dumbest Inventions Of 2017

The brilliant minds who work in the tech industry have given us lots of amazing inventions that have improved our lives in many ways, simplifying many common tasks and connecting us all like never before.

But their inventions have also changed the way we interact with each other and the internet-connected world, for better or worse, which is why some people argue their inventions have actually complicated our lives.

And while their groundbreaking and life-altering inventions are clearly brilliant it seems 2017 was the year of reinventing the wheel for Silicon Valley.

Did we really need a brand new mailbox strictly for Amazon packages or an indoor tent so people can have more personal space? Not really, but the Amazon Hub and the Pause Pod were 'invented' anyway.

And speaking of inventions that don't make our lives any easier- the app-enabled vending machine Bodega was made to be more convenient than convenience stores, but considering we can't even get old school vending machines to work properly this product was destined to fail.
