Need packaging that is silent. 
Hate crinkle crankle noise.

An additional rating option in Netflix

November 20th, 2009

** I just stumbled on this unfinished entry from many months ago. It’s unclear what it was all about, but it’s kind of funny just the way it is? **

Sometimes while viewing a DVD you may find yourself in a state of negative-enthusiasm. The appropriate response to this situation is to terminate the viewing experience.

** update 2: “UNWATCHABLE” should be the new rating option. Meaning you tried to watch it but couldn’t stick it out. Turning a movie off after 10 minutes and rating it as “HATED IT” is uninformative, because technically you only hated 10 minutes of it. You might have loved the end, and then would’ve given the entire film 3 stars, but you bailed, or I bailed, and now the overall rating average of that movie is skewed. **

Diet Jail

April 6th, 2009

A weight loss program that is a jail. You pay someone to lock you in a prison for a fixed amount of time. They feed you a fixed amount of food. You go crazy and demand more food, better treatment, just as if you were in a regular prison. Maybe they force you to do manual labor, too.
When they let you out, you’re skinnier and in better shape.

Nature-Walk Cell Phone application

February 22nd, 2009


How it’s used: take a snapshot of any plant you come across, and the application tells you what it is.

How it might work: plant database would be kept of all types of plants. Using technology like Apple or Google’s face-detection, the software would compare the shape/color of a leaf, for example, and compare it to all of the images in its plant database. Then it’d take you to its own website or Wikipedia page about the plant.

The database and application would exist in some puffy white thing. The phone application would simply snap the picture, and send it to a server somewhere where all the analysis would be done.

Instead of working…

Here’s how it’d work:

The rich person: their lifestyle wouldn’t be affected, they’d just be annoyed.

The poor people: you’d get some money from each poor person, but still leave each of them enough to live on; but JUST enough. If you took all of their wages to create your income, they’d starve and die pretty fast, then you’d have to find a job.
