Obsolete Instrument

This old tuba is just another adventure in a long line of novelty urinals.

The bell-shaped horn is hard to miss, and does have the function of funneling liquid in the right direction.

I have no idea if the instrument can function musically, and I’d hate to see somebody try it out.

This probably isn’t a good home invention, but it might be quite suitable for a concert venue.

Implications - Consumers are looking for a form of entertainment with everything they do. Everyday products that feature a whimsical element are appealing to those on-the-go who also desire some sort of fun among their responsibilities. Designers could incorporate an aspect of spontaneity into their items in order to attract more buyers.
