Nothing But Hat

It's a hat -- and a basketball hoop. With netting attached to the inside of the cap, just pop off the removable top, stick the hat's bill above a closed door and let the dunking begin. Just be sure to lock that door to avoid getting stuffed. The inventors are John Cestare and Scott McManus of Lindenhurst, New York.
