Congratulations to Sam, who posted the winning entry in our contest to name the best stolen idea. Here's his entry:
Whenever people flip through my Industrial Design portfolio, there's one project that stands out. Ostensibly it's a surge protector, but what strikes people is that it looks like an odd organic/cybernetic sculpture. It sort of resembles the bottom of a seahorse grafted to the bottom of another, equally uncomfortable seahorse. I love it, and I spent weeks building the final model.
It wasn't until right after that I noticed the exact same profile in a wind chime on my front porch.
Thanks to everyone who participated!
