Have you ever had an idea so brilliant that you couldn't believe it did not already exist in the world? If so, you're in good company with the people on this list. Their ideas are so staggeringly genius that some of them may have actually circled back around to being absolutely ridiculous. But you know what? That's just how genius works sometimes. There are countless examples of people throughout history whose ideas were so ahead of their time, yet they were considered complete fools.
The people on this list may very well be living in the year 3019, and we would probably do well to emulate them. Most of them, anyway. Some of these are honestly taking things a little too far in my opinion. Or maybe I'm just some kind of Luddite.
Get ready to have your mind blown. Or to roll your eyes. One of the two, definitely.

OK but this one I hate:Whoever did this is a menace to society and they need to be punished.
