Don't you HATE it when you see someone has beaten you to your "Million Dollar Idea"? My island purchase is going to have to wait...

DANG IT!! I think of this EVERYTIME I use a public restroom, wash my hands, then grab the handle open the door...God Bless them. I hope they retire to an island before the age of 25. They will have made my life better....

MILLION-DOLLAR IDEA: This Device Lets You Open Doors With Your Feet

The idea: The Toepener is a handle that attaches to the bottom of a door so you can open it with your feet.
Whose idea: Forge LLC, a cool startup created by University of Minnesota students.
Why it's brilliant: Germaphobes, rejoice: you'll never have to touch a dirty public bathroom door handle ever again. Toepener is also a great alternative to awkwardly opening the door with your elbow when you've got your hands full.
