Steal A Creative's Idea Today

Inventing is no easy feat; we just have to watch an episode of Dragons Den to appreciate that. 
Remember some of the more, shall we say, interesting ideas?
Mike Carr who entered the den with an idea to solve all Expats driving nightmares. A single glove that you put on your right hand when you travel abroad to remind you to drive on the correct side of the road.
Yes, that’s right. A glove. And for this glove, he wanted £100,000. 
Then there was SuperkneeS. Essentially an ugly pair of rollerskates to strap to your knees to go from one kneeling job to another at high speeds. Erm what?  
But what if these ideas (or maybe some of the better but rejected ones) could be given a new lease of life as food for thought for others. 
Well they can. 
A new website, Ideas To Steal Today, offers just that, Created by Kalle Everland and Timo Klaarenbeek, the site encourages creatives to post their rejected work, with a short explanation and a visual. So all those creatives who poured blood, sweat and tears into their ideas, can now see it put to use. All of the ideas on the website are free to use as long as their new co-owners credit the person who originally posted it. 
There is a huge range of ideas on the site. There’s an App that connects to your Nike Fuel Band but rather than urge you to pick up the pace, it urges you to take it easy, relax and enjoy what’s out there more. 
A website that allows you to look busy for your boss using Excel/photoshop backgrounds while you can actually ‘be busy’ still reading your ebook. 
And even an app that lets you find your keys, with your phone. How has that one not taken off yet? 

Inventing is no easy feat; we just have to watch an episode of Dragons Den to appreciate that.
