A 31-year-old welder has found online popularity after making a series of strange-looking gadgets with stainless steel.

Since most of the gadgets have no practical use, they are described as "useless but cool" inventions by fans.

The inventions include a hammer bag, an earthquake-proof noodle bowl and a barbecue machine which resembles a foosball table.

Geng Shuai, who has seven years of experience in welding, has attracted more than two million followers online.

Fans eagerly watch him livestream his latest inventions, or the process of making them, at his workshop in Yangcun village, Baoding city in North China's Hebei province.
