I've mentioned before that my day job means that I come across some pretty interesting, inspiring and often entrepreneurial ideas. Sometimes this happens during my commute, other times they just drop into my Inbox at work, waiting patiently until I take a moment to convert the un-reads to the reads.
I seem to be drawn to the diverse and unusual. Like there's an inbuilt radar for the out of the ordinary, A curiosity for the quirky so to speak. So maybe the job happened as a result of this - like nails to a magnet. The universe provides or something like that.
Anyhow, for a few years I have been subscribing to a fab e-newsletter from springwise.com which provides a daily three-pronged fix for my innovation itch. Springwise uses its global network of some 15,000 Springspotters to find the clever, the quirky and the downright random.
And earlier this month I saw something that made me laugh out loud.

Apparently you swab on the spot and Bob's your uncle...or maybe even your Dad!
What will they think of next?
(Actually, I'm not sure I want to know...)
