Zac's 💩 idea of the week is back for a second episode! This time the terrible idea is exploring the concept of condoms for plates... If you hate cleaning up dishes after hosting a party watch this video about "Party protection" to find out how latex could solve this problem 🙃🎬

Transcript:
 

- Hello and welcome to Zac's Shit Idea of the Week where I pitch a wacky solution to a problem to Kim and Adrian and they let me know how good or bad the idea is. I wanna start with a question first. What do you think is the worst part about hosting a dinner party?

- Cooking. For me.

- Kim?

- I'd say cleaning.

- Cleaning. Yeah, oh yeah, even worse, yeah.

- Yeah.

- I think there's a huge problem that you invite a bunch of friends over, you wanna hold a really nice night with your friends, cooking a lovely meal and then you have to do the awkward part of cleaning up afterwards. Your friends are still there. You wanna have the social time. You wanna hang out with them and you've got this big pile of dishes.

- Yes.

- So this is what I introduce. Party protection. It's my own premium patented latex technology. Essentially think a condom but for a plate. And cutlery. And cutlery. So the idea is you've cooked a meal. You don't want to use plastic plates or paper plates. Plastic forks and stuff, they're not very nice. You wanna use your nice dinner plates but you don't wanna get them dirty and have to do the wash up. So you cover over with the latex over, we've got cutlery designs as well. We might even look in the future expanding to cups and glasses and wine glasses. But essentially, you put it over the plate, eat your meal off of it and then off it goes, once you're finished.

- Yeah. Do you like pull it off and then tie it up?

- Yep. You can.

- Do you have, does it make-- Does it come in different sizes?

- And then the plate's clean, that can just go back into the cupboard and not as much clean-up to do.

- So what about, do these things smell like a condom?

- No. No, no, no.

- Different flavours.

- Smell that weird--

- That was just the best way I could think of how to relate it to a product that already exists.

- Yes.

- No, it won't have the greasy texture. It won't smell weird.

- Not be lubricated.

- Yeah, it won't be lubricated. Yeah.

- How about heat because I've never put lasagna on top of a condom before. I might now that you've explained it to me.

- That's why I have my very own Zac Hutchings premium patented latex technology. That is different to what latex has usually been used for.

- So it's heatproof.

- Heat resistant.

- No scent.

- No, no scent.

- I know that you've got this patented tech. When you're eating a steak, you tend to use a pretty fucking sharp knife.

- Yes.

- Yeah.

- And I don't know any condoms that can get a steak knife and be resistant against it so.

- Is it good for the environment?

- Let's say yes.

- Let's say yes. It's eco-friendly, it's cheap as fuck.

- There's a lot that I can't talk about 'cause it's in development at the moment.

- Yeah.

- There's a lot of IP at play here so.

- I think an interesting lesson for people watching this is if it's knife-proof, because apparently it is, if you create an invention that, if the intellectual property, the IP, is incredible, chances are an entrepreneur will get it wrong the way that they apply that technology to a market. So if you did create a condom that was knife-proof, it'd be much better selling that technology to the military or the police.

- Yep.

- As like something that would go under their suit so that they couldn't--

- Yeah, true.

- So that, even potentially bulletproof or something. If you actually created something that thin and light--

- Yeah.

- Having a dinner plate wrapping, fork wrapping company would be a really bad use of technology. Think of the format and the application separately so that you can yet apply it to something different. My score would be probably a one out of 10. This one is a really bad idea.

- I reckon it's zero but the technology would be a six out of 10.

- Yeah, if you made the tech.

- Think if I made the tech, guys. We're talking about--

- [Guys] Knife-proof.

- Latex.

- The technology is 10 out of 10.

- It's like a 12 out of 10.

- If you made it.

- If you made it.

- But probably not. And the insight and the problem, 'cause we mostly care about is the problem real.

- Yes.

- And are the insights real, I definitely believe in that.

- Yep.

- Definitely, it's a huge problem. It does annoy people and there are some solutions out there for us. I definitely believe in the problem. The way you've turned that into a solution seems like a very hard way of solving what really is a minor inconvenience.

- Yes.

- I just feel like the din-tech space needs a lot of improvement.

- Party tech.

- Din-tech.
