Sinclair C5 voted worst invention of all-time
Of all the inventions in the world, ever, the Sinclair C5 has been voted the biggest gadget tragedy in human history.
Seems a bit unfair.
Sir Clive Sinclair's battery-tricycle topped a list that also included Alan Sugar's email telephone and Betamax video.
In second place was the Rabbit, which if you remember, was a mobile phone which only worked if you were stood within a 100 metres of a transmitter. Basically, it was an expensive walkie-talkie.
The Gadget Show Live, ran the poll, said some of the developments tried "to solve problems that simply didn't exist".
Here's the top ten worst technology inventions ever.
1. Sinclair C5
2. Rabbit Mobile Phones
3. Betamax video
4. Sony MiniDisc
5. LaserDisc video
6. Sega Game Gear
8. Email telephone
9. Pizza scissors
10. Sony DAT
Feel free to disagree and add your own bad gadgets in the comments. We think the addition of the GameGear is a little peculiar (surely no better or worse than an Atari Lynx or GameBoy Colour?). The BBQ Donut Boat should have really got a look in.
