Chindogu are inventions that defy concise explanation. They aren’t useful. But they aren’t completely useless either. Chindogu 珍道具ちんどうぐ is made up of two words. Chin 珍ちん means “curious” or “strange.” Dougu 道具どうぐ means “tool” or “device.”
Stationed in Osaka, Japan, Chindogu Tech Fest is a technology conference with a twist.
A program guide was created to inform conference-goers of where they should be throughout the weekend. This year's Chindogu were based around the theme of apples which served as the source of the brand identity.
