Nearly every engineer loves Dilbert. Now Scott Adams, the creator of our favorite nerd, has created a new site called the "Lazy Entrepreneur", which promises, "all talk and no funding." The site encourages fans (and In-Duh-Viduals who can find the site) an opportunity to share their good ideas for a new invention.
Even though the site launched a few months ago, there are already tons of ideas, including some from Mr. Adams himself. How about a find-your-car-deviceóa string of lights placed on your antenna with a remote control on your keychain? Or a suspended track chair for those worthy few who have a large workspace? (Wouldn't this be even better with a small electric motor, too?) How about electronic wallpaper regulated by a low-voltage current running through a chemical mesh glued to the wall of your house? (No more washing walls either, just key in a darker color!) There's even a suggestion for an empty parking space detector with a zoomable map showing empty spots plus an indicator of parking meter status. (Some visitors have already mentioned that this exists in Europe!)
