Stockholm Taxi: Introduces Commuter Communication With Onboard Therapists

Taxi drivers serve a number of essential purposes in this world. They deal with unfortunate catastrophes that occur while shuttling drunk people around (taking the necessity from the rest of us), they listen to the mundane details of our daily lives, and they save us from walking or driving in unpleasant weather. Even with all of that, they're still underappreciated, but that may be about to change.

Nimbl: Cash Delivery From Mobile, Human ATMs

Automatic Teller Machines (ATMs) are pretty darn convenient as it stands. They eliminate the need for people to have a face-to-face conversation with another human being. And, they appear in places where there isn't even a traditional financial institution, which was a pretty innovative business plan in its time. But, cash convenience can be improved upon; if it comes to you.

Rathaus: Zurich's First Bike Up Cafe

Cities around the world have been encouraging locals to embrace cycling in lieu of contributing to environmental pollution by driving. Businesses have also been embracing this growing trend, offering a number of convenient services to cyclists. The latest one has to be among the most innovative yet.

New Born Fame: Controversial Toy Biz Gets Babies Active On Social Media

These days it seems as though the minimum age requirement for using social media is getting progressively younger with each new development. While children and adolescents are on Facebook sharing the lunch packed by a doting parent, there's one age group that's noticeably absent in the creation of their own digital footprint - babies. However, a new niche company is destined to change that.

McKamey Manor: Horror Movie Experience From Your Nightmares

Psychopathic killers, stalker clowns, paranormal poltergeists - it's the season for them. We invite them into our lives by showcasing them on our televisions, retelling spooky tales by flashlight, and even paying to have them scare the pants off us. We've seen many businesses try their hand at the scare industry, but this Halloween we're featuring one that takes it to a level that only those with a criminal record have gone before. Seriously.

The Business Of Clowning Around: Terrifying Stalker Clowns For Hire

We have seen businesses that are scary in their genius, scary in their creativity, and scary in the fact that they're disturbing. While many businesses end up being scary, few actually setup to attain this as the central part of their business plan, it just happens somehow. Since scary isn't generally the intended goal, those monetizing on the terrifying become all the more interesting.

Wilshire Gun Range: First Business To Combine Shooting With Serving Alcohol

If we've learned anything, it's that the best businesses don't always have to be the most innovative or out of this world concepts. Sometimes, taking a familiar concept that already has mainstream success, and putting a unique spin on it is exactly how some of the best businesses come to be. Other times, businesses take this approach, but get it all wrong.

Marijuana Farmer's Market Becomes An Actual Thing In 2014

With the nation's ever-evolving marijuana laws, pot businesses are becoming increasingly popular and legal dispensaries are finding their own niches in the industry. The latest trend follows a formula that is tried, tested, and true. It continues to grow in popularity as consumers switch their focus to shopping local.

Gory Gourmet: Zombie Food Truck Serves Braaaaiiinnss

Zombie food trucks are a trendy concept. Most American cities have one, playing on people's love for all things undead. While a zombie food truck is a unique concept in itself, when a business trend is overused, it takes away from the innovation. Standing out from the pack therefore needs a super creative approach to something that already falls into the realm of imagination.

I Tradizionali: Foodie Business Creates Visual Recipes On Temporary Tattoos

Some of the most innovative business concepts cross the boundaries of love and hate - some consumers will readily embrace them and share their excitement with others, while other people will rebel against it disdainfully because it deviates too far from the traditional. In either circumstance, a business knows it's doing something truly unique when it elicits such strong reactions, and this new culinary business is one that will surely fall into this category once consumer awareness increases.
