Ideas aren't always cheap

Posted 15 years ago by Adam Gautsch

So I say to all y'all South Carolinaians. Go forth and submit as many ideas as you've got. It may turn in to some real cash.

PS: Graham Fizer of was honorable mention in last years competition.

Isn't that kinda like spec work?

Adam Gautsch ~ 15 years ago

Nah, Spec work is doing actual work. Thinking up ideas takes no real time or energy.

Oh.. no work involved huh. Then I'll go ahead and put out 3 of my favorites.

1.) pedal operated toilet seats: for the man who can't remember to put them down.
2.) Pressurized 'gatorade' coolers for improved fluid delivery when volume is low.
3.) biologically covered roadways. build framed screens over major roads and allow plants (ivy?, kudzu?) to grow on the frames. It will help prevent global warming, improve safety, and improve the overall aesthetics of the landscape. Maybe.

I have an idea for a genetically engineered goose that lays golden eggs. Would that work?

Good ideas all Mr. Nobrainer. Too bad you aren't a SC resident or you'd have 3grand in your pocket right now.

I always wanted to invent teeth that healed. Then along came this article. Then, more recently, these guys grew mice teeth in a test tube. It looks like the Europeans are way ahead of South Carolina on this one.

Jimmy C and I were considering making a universal credit card so you don't have to carry so many cards in your wallet.

May already be done, but...

How about a keyless entry remote for your car that vibrates or makes a sound when the car alarm is going off. Anything to alert the person with the keys that their car alarm is annoying everyone else.

Some folks in my apartment complex could really use one...especially at 3:00 in the morning...

If anyone wants to submit my ideas, go right ahead. And if you win and don't share, you can go right to hell.

I dunno about the universal credit card thingy - using a card is so 5 minutes ago. Scan my retinas or something - or at least let me use my cell phone like the entire population of Japan has been doing for a decade.

I'm still waiting for a USB breathalyzer that denies you access to email or Internet if you're over a certain limit.

Not that I need one or anything.

Here's another one:

Combine Wheelies with the orthopedic boots they give to people with broken feet and ankles.

Personal airbags - for the folks who try to use the heely/cast combo.

Or for people who trip and fall a lot.

Or can't handle their wine, even.
