There have been several moments throughout history where a product has found success due to misuse of the device or a positive accident.
The humble record player is a good example of such an event as not only did Thomas Edison not intend to invent a recording device when he stumbled upon the ability to record audio with his phonograph but he was actively against it being used for replaying music. The original intention was for it be used for office transcriptions.  It is widely suspected that it was the financial rewards that swayed his views on the matter once he saw the success of his invention reach heights he could never have imagined.
