Creativity Wasted is a podcast where a group of creative people get together, and we each share an idea that we're not planning on pursuing in real life, such as an invention idea that's outside our area of expertise, a futuristic sci-fi movie idea, or an evil prank idea. And rather than just letting the idea quietly slip away, we get some fun out of it by joking about it together.

    Remote-Controlled Fast Food Robots (Brandon Ponke)

    Remote-Controlled Fast Food Robots (Brandon Ponke)

    Idea: To replace fast food workers with robots which are controlled by real people working remotely from home, and also to prepare fast food for delivery via pneumatic tubes in "ghost kitchens" in apartment complexes and dorms. This would give the workers more job flexibility and would allow the restaurants to stay open if there was a more deadly virus outbreak. Also: opinions on "gig jobs" and working from home; controlling robots that cook real food for real people as a "loot grind" task in a video game; remote-controlled robotic cats to catch the rats that eat the food dropped by the food-cooking robots

    Drone Food Delivery To Moving Vehicles (Kara Coraci)

    Drone Food Delivery To Moving Vehicles (Kara Coraci)

    Ideas: To have drones deliver food to people in moving vehicles, such as cars stuck in traffic. Also: how some technology of today would seem insane and/or ridiculous to people in the past; holding out bags of food on hooks which people on trains can grab as the train drives by; having drones swap your normal helmet with a "beer helmet" while you're driving a motorcycle

    Plug-In Liver (James Couture)

    Plug-In Liver (James Couture)

    Idea: An extra liver that you can plug in to your body after drinking heavily to reduce your hangover and/over reduce the long-term harmful effects of the alcohol. Also: crazy medical devices which actually exist (or could exist) but aren't made available because they're only for recreation (i.e. they don't improve your health); why dentistry is a scam; learning how to make illegal drugs while serving as a juror in a trial

    GoZebos and Snap-In Windows (Tom Walma)

    GoZebos and Snap-In Windows (Tom Walma)

    Idea: Gazebos and other structures (yurts, sunbathing pods, dune buggies, pontoon boats) which can be converted between "open-air structures" and "enclosed shelter-providing structures" by snapping in/out modular clear plastic windows. The idea is, instead of living in a "house", to instead live most of your life in the open air, and only enclose yourself "indoors" (i.e. within walls and windows) for brief moments of shelter, such as sleeping, avoiding cold or rainy weather, using the bathroom, etc. Also: robots transporting most of your stuff between the structures and a neighborhood warehouse on-demand; the increased danger of bear attacks; a music festival where people construct small temporary shelters around the stage and live there for days or weeks

    A Taste Of Reality (Justin Siekierka)

    A Taste Of Reality (Justin Siekierka)

    Idea: Chocolates which (unlike Dove) don't display unrealistically positive messages on the wrapper. Instead, they display realistic messages, such as reminders to perform errands ("make sure you have AA batteries") and comedically dark/demotivational messages ("your spouse probably settled", "you're too old to achieve your dreams"). Also: some of the chocolates could taste bad on purpose to remind you of the harshness of reality; the messages could be tailored to you based on a scan of your social media; positive messages should be reserved for healthy food like vegetables (instead of chocolates) to lure people to better health instead of to obesity and diabetes

    Tranq Chair (Dave Wellfare)

    Tranq Chair (Dave Wellfare)

    Idea: A "smart chair" with a tranquilizer device to knock out annoying people at a movie theater. It would vibrate once or twice as a warning before tranqing you, unless you answer your phone and start talking, in which case you'd be tranq'd immediately. Also: Getting tranq'd on purpose if the movie is boring or you want to relax before a job interview; trying to make your friends laugh inappropriately during a sad movie to get them tranq'd; tranqing young kids who freak out at a scary movie
