ATG Quirkies: Problems concentrating? Not with the ultra modern “Isolator”

Science-and-Invention-MagazineGernsback1920-304Having trouble getting those book orders done or finishing that pesky annual report?  No problem. Get fitted for the Isolator, a stylish bit of headgear that “encourages focus and concentration by rendering the wearer deaf, piping them full of oxygen, and limiting their vision to a tiny horizontal slit.”

According to this post on the Laughing Squid website, the Isolator was invented in 1925 “by Hugo Gernsback, editor of Science and Invention magazine, a member of “The American Physical Society, and one of the pioneers of science fiction ”

You’ll probably have to back order it from Amazon!
