Although exiled from memory now, there was but one name in gadgetry to be trusted from the 1930s through the 1960s: the storied and indefatigable inventing house of ACME Products. Who can forget their many technological triumphs? ACME Brand Dehydrated Boulders, which — with a single drop of water — would granoblastically engorge themselves from small pebbles? Or the ACME Brand Indestructo Steel Ball, which beat Volvo to the punch with the first nigh-invulnerable passenger vehicle? Or the patented ACME brand Instant Girl, a small capsule which, taken regularly, would fight off the loneliness of even the most introverted teenage boy? And let’s not forget old stalwarts like the ACME Brand Jet Propelled Pogo Stick, the ACME Brand Iron Carrot, ACME Brand Strait-Jacketed Ejecting Bazookas and, of course, the timeless ACME Brand Giant Rubber Band.
Follow the link below to be whisked away to an online museum of ACME brand products, with links, images and descriptions detailing each and every invention in ACME’s legendary arsenal of gadgets. It may be hard to imagine now, but we owe so many of our modern day tech industries to ACME’s radical ingenuity. Bow your heads and usher forth to the museum of ACME with due reverence, gadget swine!
