  62. Tammy Klain says:

    I do, tons of them, they all come to me before I go to sleep. I swear this is true! I come up with the concept, how it would be useful and practical and how to market it then when I wake up I can never remember what it was 🙁 My hubby says I must of been an inventor in a past life lol

  72. Christina says:

    I haven’t ever had any great ideas or innovations

  73. Dwayne Berry says:

    I have had a few good ideas for products only to find out that someone else had just started making them. There was one really great idea that I had back in the early 90s. I wrote to Lorne Michaels at Broadway Video and suggested that he put out some music videos from performances on SNL. The letter that I got back said that it would be too hard to get the rights to all the various artists. Well, apparently they worked that out enough to be able to put out whole seasons of the show.

  75. Andrea Williams says:

  205. Angela Cisco says:

    No, I’m not very creative when it come to stuff like that.

  206. We could use this to start Christmas shopping

  207. Amy Austin says:

    Nope, not really…

  208. Paula Gillespie says:

    No I have not had an idea for an invention.

  209. Kat Emerick says:

    Since I have friends and family who are either hard of hearing or deaf, I had an idea that instead of a door bell that chimed I thought it would be great to have one that either lights up or have something like a flashing red light that would blink when someone is at the door.

  210. Jennifer says:

    I have come up with an innovative idea, but I don’t want to share. Gotta keep it under wraps. lol

  211. M Chamney says:

    no sorry, I have never thought of any good inventions

  212. Heather S says:

    not really I wanted to make the thing that holds a salad w/dressing and freezy in the lid but someone already made it

  213. Angela Neynaber says:

    I havent had any ideas or inventions. I guess Im just not that creative.

  214. Everytime I think I have an idea I come to find someone else has already done it

  215. Aubrey says:

    i had an idea of candles for men, then somebody actually did it

  216. Katy says:

    When I was in 4th grade I entered my idea of a bird diaper into the science fair!

  217. I have had lots of great ideas, but unfortunately everyone here must be able to read my mind, there we go, a thought blocking device, that’s the ticket!

  218. Mary Cloud says:

    Unfortunately I’m not that creative so no ideas

  219. Jayne G says:

    I’ve had flashes of ideas, but nothing significant.

  220. Sumer says:

    Unfortunately I haven’t had any great ideas that could be the next big thing….yet!

  221. melina r says:

    no ideas or innovation

  222. Brittney House says:

    No, i’ve never thought of anything.

  223. Erica C. says:

    I’ve never really had an idea for an invention…and if I did…it was something goofy and stupid!

  224. Susan Smith says:

    No I haven’t has any ideas for a product

  225. Carolyn Daley says:

    I am not very creative to think of wonderful innovations. The only thing that comes to mind is a product that would help scoop ice cream without waiting 5 to 10 minutes for it to soften up. We have our ice cream in the deep freezer and its a pain to scoop unless you have it set out for awhile. If there could be a product that could help you scoop ice cream the moment you take it out of the freezer that would be nice.

    In the past, I have thought of an idea called ‘build a bra.’ Most of us women have two different cup sizes. I think it would be cool to have cup attachments where you can piece together and build your own bra. One cup piece for the left, one cup piece for the right, straps, and connecter hooks in the front.

  226. Kate Strycker says:

    I ahve but couldn’t tell you what they are- they come on spur of the moment! lol

  227. Kathleen S. says:

    I’ve had ideas before, but never followed through on them.

  228. spirit_kim says:

    Yes, back before fruit salsas got big I wondered if that would take off. Unfortunately I just talked with some friends about it.

  229. Lindsey M says:

    I’m always thinking up craxy ideas for things but I can’t remember any now so the ideas must’n’t ever be that good!

  230. Christy Weller says:

    I have tried to think of innovations, but haven’t had any luck so far.

  231. Trisha McKee says:

    Not really. I create stories, not products. But I did suggest at my work that they offer the software to individuals and not just businesses. They refused, saying people would have no need for it like businesses did. Well, the company is failing and on tv, there is an infomercial that advertises the very thing I suggested to individual people. Should have listened to me!

  232. Kerry says:

    For a school project one year I cam up with colored salt – so you could see how much you were putting on your food:)

  233. Crystal F says:

    I know that I’ve had ideas for silly things in the past but I can’t remember what they were right now. I know it was nothing that would actually take off. lol thank you!

  234. Lisa Mendes says:

    I can’t say that I have. I wish I was more creative.

  235. amy deeter says:

    not off hand,sorry

    • Heather G says:

      Yes, but someone else has already thought of it usually.

  236. christina givens says:

    I love those Cake Babies small appliances. I would love to invent one that had interchangable plates so you didn’t have to buy 10differnt appliances. Who has room for all that?

  237. Karen Lynch says:

    Not that I can think of. Thanks for the giveaway.

  238. kim says:

  240. Kelly says:

    Nope, still waiting to think up the next big thing.

  241. Lisa says:

    I had an idea for a big lint roller for rugs. Apparently it already it exists, I tried it and it is terrible.

  242. Margie says:

    Well, if there is anything to make cleaning around the house easier, then any ideas are welcome. Perhaps a device that will help me find the things I seem to lose?

  243. susan smoaks says:

    yes, i think that clear coffee would be an amazing invention but i have no idea how to make it!

  244. Ash Johnson says:

    I haven’t ever had an idea, but my brother-in-law is always coming up with things. At Christmas, its pretty much all he ever talks about. But he never follows through with anything.

  245. Sarah Yurga says:

    An answering machine with different message for different callers (nice for friends, nasty for telemarketers)

    Not really–have often wondered why I didn’t think of some of the ones I have seen though!

  251. Vicki D. says:

    I work on a school bus. It would be great to have an automatic counter, so every time a child gets on and get off, it would keep track of it. We are always looking for kids left on the bus, especially sleeping children.

  252. Tanya White says:

    No I have not had a idea for a product or innovation

  253. Jennifer Peaslee says:

  254. Roxann says:

    No, but I wish I did.

  255. Brenda Elsner says:

    No, I haven’t had any ideas on new products or innovations.

  257. Annemarie Z. says:
