Free Idea # 298 - One key for open and lock anything

Make life simpler by giving every living person just one key
that would open and lock anything and everything they owned.
The 'One Key' would open their house front door, their car,
their garage, their garden shed, their bike lock, etc. Imagine
how good it would be to only ever need to carry one key.

Free Idea # 297 - Indicator for check quality of milk

Coat the inside of milk bottles with a lining which changes
color depending on the condition of the milk. Green would

Free Idea # 296 - Olfactory alarm clock

6Create an olfactory alarm clock that would wake sleepy people
by emitting a range of odors. Scent settings could include
pleasant fragrances (e.g. cinnamon buns, coffee, pancakes,
Chanel No. 5) and repugnant stenches (e.g. skunk musk,
rotting flesh, burning food, stinky feet). And - just for fun! -
the 'Wake Up And Smell The Coffee' clock would invite people
to input their own smells as well.
