During my previous visits to Taiwan, I have seen interesting products that I had not yet seen in the USA. Some of these products seemed silly, but some seemed like pure genius. The ingenuity I have seen by the Taiwanese people have been driven by convenience and practicality. Some of the products include: baby shoes that squeak when used to walk, rackets that zap mosquitos, and disposable underwear sold at convenience stores.
I will occasionally run across more interesting products as a resident of Taiwan and will share them on this blog. The latest innovation is a pair of socks that truly hugs the feet. My brother in law was wearing a pair when I noticed them. I did a double take, as I first thought I was looking at a glove on his foot. I tried a pair on and was amazed at the comfort. I don’t know how long these will take to end up on store shelves at Wal-mart, but it will be a hit.
