    We could learn or adapt to a lot of things, but it's always great that there are people who go out there ant invent stuff.

    'Great minds think alike" - Dabridgcourt Belchier

    https://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/great-minds-think-alike.
    'Great minds think alike' isn't especially old as proverbs go, but the thought behind it dates from at least the early 17th century. The impressively named Dabridgcourt Belchier wrote this in Hans Beer-Pot, 1618: Though he made that verse, Those words were made before.

    Greatness in inventing is anything that's practical which solves something that's currently difficult for us humans to do. This is a chindogu , not an invention.

    I wouldn't exactly compare that car to any of the above, as it took some actual thought and skill to modify the car, but you do you...

    So you're saying you feel this thing is closer to a practical application than something that's just short of a gimmick. A huge mechanism on the back of a vehicle just for one operation- a tight fitting parking spot, and with any sort of practice an operation anyone should be able to master. That devise is not remotely practical and you know it.

    I'm saying that I welcome the ingenuity and skill that went into making it.
    I always enjoy people making interesting stuff.
    As for practicality, maybe it is, maybe it is not, but this is something I will leave you to be bothered about ;)
    I just enjoy seeing the end result and people succeeding with their projects.

    Fair enough. I noticed I did something to you that I hate when people do it to me, and that's to twist my words around. You said it's great people try to invent stuff- not that the invention is great.

    I'd like to offer you...

    :D
