Business Ideas

 | August 8, 2008 11:16 AM

  1. health club for metrosexual asians (cool music, dark lighting, lots of instant noodles)
  2. costco and farmer’s market shopper
  3. handheld machine that translates Spanish, Chinese and all Indian languages (or at least Hindu, Tamil, Urdu and Bengali)
  4. robot that rocks babies to sleep
  5. video camera attached to glasses which records everything you see.  When you like something, you rewind and watch it on your glasses (this idea is copied from here).
  6. a pill you can eat that instantly removes a bad mood, preferably like a gummy vitamin

I went to U of O to study/research mobile computing. At the time, the MIT media lab guys were all about enhanced environments, and ubiquitous computing. They were more of a hardware approach, we were more of the soft approach.

Steve Mann. The alpha version cyborg. Brilliant fellow.

#1 – Minus the noodles, you’ve basically described a bar in the Castro.
#2 – That would be cool. 🙂
#3 – See Babel Fish from The Hitchhiker’s Guide – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babel_fish
#4 – Isn’t that a swing?
#5 – Very cool idea… I love my TiVo… See my comment above.
#6 – HHmmm there are a lot of “happy pills” out there, and not all of them are legal. I think maybe the closest thing is a Werther’s Original http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Werther's_Original
