The 20th century was a time of great innovation. From the automobile to the personal computer, inventors used their imaginations and skills to create products that have had an indelible impact on human existence. And we are thankful for their ingenuity. There have also been inventors who put their minds to devising all manner of sugary, silly and simply strange things. Sure, we could live without cotton candy, the Super Soaker and those inflatable tubes that flail about in front of car dealerships—but how much fun would that be? Today, we pay tribute to all those inventors that make life all the more exciting.
