Einstein: the product designer?

Albert Einstein is known mostly for his physics – completely changing our view of the universe and whatnot – but he found time to do other things. He started a book club, played violin and founded Hebrew University in Jerusalem, where he left a bunch of his archives.

He also created a number of inventions that had nothing to do with esoteric scientific theories such as (believe it or not) a blouse.

Those years working in a Swiss patent office must have paid off, because he patented about 50 designs over the years. No wonder somebody once stole his brain!

Here's a few things that Einstein invented.
