It’s not too far-fetched to imagine that a new technology was about to become ubiquitous in the world of sweat.
The concept of a sweat shakers, developed in the early 1900s by Russian physiologist Nikolai Shcherbakov, was to create a device that would allow humans to generate sweat, but without any needles or needles-like attachments.
The device was designed to be used on a person’s skin to generate the most natural, organic and hygienic sweat possible.
The shaker would be able to hold up to 40ml of water.
It was intended to be worn by any person for a period of up to 20 minutes, but was also used by the military to provide extra warmth for troops.
But in the years that followed, the idea was soon overshadowed by the development of the modern day vacuum cleaner, and even the humble pail.
A more recent invention called the ‘sweat shaker’, invented in 2010, is also a water-based device.
The main difference is that the Shcherbaevov sweat shapers are not needles, instead they use an adhesive material that holds the water and prevents the shaker from spilling when touched by a finger or other hand.
These sweat shapers are still in use today, although not as widely as they once were.
The invention that has gone unnoticed for a while is the idea of ‘pillows’.
Pillows are not devices that allow people to generate water or other fluids.
They are, instead, devices that are designed to provide support for the user.
The idea behind these devices is to provide a barrier between the user and their surroundings and prevent them from falling into water or being suffocated in an environment where they could not breathe.
The most common examples of pillows are made of metal or plastic, although other materials can also be used, including rubber, cotton and other materials.
Inventors of these devices include: The US Navy’s Chief Medical Officer Dr Robert H. Rabinowitz, who created the first pail in 1961.
