Okay, so this wasn't intended to be a thread idea at first, I just thought, wouldn't it be funny to say:

"The 'Caution: Wet Floor' stand-up sign was an invention intended to make the mop obsolete, but failed to do so."

What other inventions "failed" to make a previous invention obsolete? (If it's not clear enough, we're not talking about facts here, just silliness... NOT inventions that really were intended to make something obsolete.)
