Burrito holders, de-toasters and double-sided petrol tanks... the invention ideas you wish were real
We're FULLY convinced we have the next big invention, it's right there on the tip of our brains, it's just taking its sweet time to materialise.
The moment a lightbulb goes off is a glorious one, you have an incredible idea and then HEY PRESTO you decide to give up your job and be a full-time inventor.
Problem is, whenever we invent things around here, one small google brings us firmly back to reality.
Every now and again a thread pops up on Twitter that we adore, and 'Invention ideas:' is definitely one of them. We've been trawling through it (for more hours than we'd like to admit) to see if any of our ingenious ideas have already been thought of.
To be fair, someone needs to invent a burrito holder and double sided petrol tank IMMEDIATELY, although a de-toaster is a little too magic, even for us.
