18 People Share Pictures of the Most Peculiar but Useful Objects They’ve Found

Nowadays, there are so many objects around that only a few manage to surprise us. But people online always share the ones that amaze them the most, either because they solve problems that are not so obvious or because they’ve found items that are so old, they’ve already been replaced by others that fulfill the same function.

At Bright Side, we’ve compiled some photos of objects that caught the attention of Internet users for the particular function they fulfill.

1. This robot that counts the items available at the supermarket

2. “I see your jar opener and raise you my great-great-grandma’s jar opener.”

3. “This plastic plunger to keep the pickled peppers submerged in the juice”

4. “This old bread crumb collector”
