We think about technological progress as moving us forward, but for every giant leap, there are just as many awkward sidesteps. Today, we want to know about the technological advances that time (justly!) forgets.

Whether it's one we've already moved on from, or one we're still actively trying to forget, tell us all about the LaserDiscs, Smell-O-Vision, and all the other inventions that the world just wasn't ready for (because they were terrible) below. Pictures too, please!
