TapaasBaar: concept pop-up bar with tapas for foodies. #oipd

Because drinks without food are only halve the fun. Imagine a mobile kitchen, fresh ingredients, exquisite drinks, a creative bartender and chef that pop-up on public places or in buildings (or by invitation) until all is consumed.

Probably a concept Koen Betsens would enjoy.

I hope you enjoy the ideas! Let me know if you’re taking up something or have found people or startups who are already doing something similar in the comments.

iRadio, the portable and interactive radio. #oipd

Whenever you though hearing a lapsus. Or your favorite tune of the moment is playing. Or you just got cut off listening to an interesting interview while fueling gasoil. iRadio, the portable and interactive car radio solves most of these problems. This piece of hard -and software (compare it with the first GPS’s or television digiboxes) gives you the options to pause or rewind the feed you’re listening too. It also gives you the possibility to buy music on the go and put it directly in your current playlist. You can even favorite some ad for further referencing later. All that in just a smart car radio that you can take with you (in a car key?).

Energy captive roof design. #oipd

Solar / heat pump roof designWe should rethink the concept of roofs.

The idea is to create a roof design that consists of solar energy captive tiles with below that some kind of heat pump principle build into. It would definitely look less stupid and less ugly than those dreadful solar panels.

Energy captive roofs instead of solar roof panels are only the beginning… No? 🙂

TheWriteID wasn’t right for me.

I have to admit it. Although I still believe the TheWriteID concept is the best idea I’ve had so far (to stay politically correct; just below proposing to my wife and the decision to have kids). It is one I cannot realize by myself. Some say it’s fine to fail often and that it’s fine to fail fast. But still, it hearted me more than I was hoping.
What stroke me most is that although I was passionate about the idea, hardcore believer and evangelist, and the basic ideas were feasible but hard to realize I could get people enthusiastic for just a brief moment. I guess these were the momenta I’ve spent with them. I realize now – all these people have other priorities, other obligations, other worries than to change the world.

But okay, I have to thank them because they are worth it. A shit load of people who gave me advice, made and broke stuff or at least tried to get things moving. I could make a list but it’s a long list and I would want to forget anyone. I know who did. And that what matters.

So, thank you, guys.

For those who didn’t know about TheWriteID, here below you find the scope in brief and how Frank & I thought we found all elements independently existing from each other.

TheWriteID is a work in progress, both as a technical solution and as a commercial offer. It aims to be the identity layer on top of the internet with the sole and only goal to regain control over one’s online and digital identity by extracting it from current networks & services. The best part of TheWriteID is that the data is encrypted locally so we can’t read out the identity data itself, unless a user decides to share it. We aim to make true identity manageable and re-usable for other networks and services, by introducing variable personas.

In essence, we wonder how we can evolve from an internet of connected devices to a truly internet of connected people? TheWriteID aims to get us from the era of connected contexts to one where users are free to handle their identity and all its slight variations with who they want/like/decide.

Digital identity, as it could have been: www.TheWriteID.com. 😉

If you feel like doing something with it – go ahead!
Keep me posted. I’ll be your first ambassador.
