China’s “useless Edison” goes viral with his wacky designs

Dubbed by his fans the “Useless Edison” after the American inventor Thomas Edison, village craftsman Geng Shuai has many inventions. Useless? Maybe. Funny? Definitely.

A cumbersome-looking metal “happy chair” whose hands “massage” your feet and ribs, a meat cleaver that doubles up as a mobile phone case, a sword you can use to scrub your back and a toilet built into a scooter that flushes when you pull a lever on the handlebar, these are just a few of the wacky inventions Geng has dreamed up, and demonstrated in videos livestreamed to thousands.

The former plumber, who lives in China’s northern province of Hebei, became an internet sensation with videos of his creations posted online in 2017.

He has since racked up more than 2.7 million followers on the Chinese short video app Kuaishou and nearly a million on Twitter-like Weibo.
