Prototype 1000 | prototypes of products we all wish existed

Prototype 1000 is a site created by web designer Nezi Sato that functions as a database for all his crazy dream-like prototypes of products he wished existed. Some products seem like generally good ideas, while others are just outrageous or silly. But that’s perhaps what makes the site so interesting. Here a few of my favorites, which I genuinely wish existed.

Sato certainly has a vivid, playful imagination. His past projects include an app the gets kids interested in math by substituting boring exercises like counting crayons, with counting poop. He also created an Avian Flu twitter bot that randomly infects follows users and then unfollows them in about 5 days.
