Underground bottle parking for all kind of vehicles.

Underground parking spots

 

The idea is to create a bottle parking principle in which you don’t need much space above but only beneath the ground. This bottle parking principle with elevators makes more sense as it saves space and is much safer as the risk on theft and vandalism gets reduced to (almost) zero. It can also be used for bicycles. Imagine the places where you can’t get through anymore because the bike parkings are just so crowded. Another nice advantage is that you never have to look for you bike again.

How would it work?

You go to the ‘Bottled Parking Spot’ entrance, you drive in your vehicle, create a code and your vehicle gets stored to or retreived from the underground.

Platefinder.com: a reverse restaurant market place.

Eggs Benedicte

The concept is really simple. Restaurants share their menu’s and people can use the search of the site to find the exact dish they want to eat. Menu plate finder restaurant website is basically a reverse marketplace for food. So imagine you want a spaghetti bolognaise, lobster or eggs Benedicte, Platefinder tells you where you can go to eat it.

LinkedIn swiping app for recruiters.

mindtagger's browser results interface

Recruitment is big business. I invented a search&find plugin while I was working for Across that gave you the possible results of a combined query and all of its reciprocally relations (instead of direct results). The visual browser was intuitive, lightning fast, and the query was easily adjustable. Wim Deboel connected it through LinkedIn’s API. I would improve it nowadays by creating a B2B swiping app to explore candidates for recruiters to make recruiting a bit more fun:

  • Swipe left – keep for further referencing and next.
  • Swipe right –  to contact immediately and next. keep for further referencing but not the (job) skills I was looking for immediately.
  • Swipe down – keep for further referencing but not the (job) skills I was looking for immediately.
  • Swipe up – not to be included in next up queries.

You can find Mindtagger (that’s what it was called) by its (not so new and fresh but) current name Profeshion.

Search.me: Search your cloud services.

Look it up

You know that feeling that you don’t know where you’ve put something? Are your pictures partly on Picasa, Dropbox and perhaps you’ve also published some on Flickr? Or that one file, is it in mailbox X, Y, Z or on Box.net? Filter failure is a reality nowadays. It mostly happens when you don’t know where you have filed it.

Search.me is a virtualisation layer that indexes all your (private) info and makes it discoverable via a handy personal search so you can easily find your stuff back across all the cloud services you use.

Not only does it index (not copying) your content in all these places, an extra offer is made to manage your cloud services more efficiently. Using simple ‘fall over’ principes, you can use freemium models to their full potential. Just because it’s a virtualisation layer, it can bypass certain limits in freemium services by creating new accounts or cleverly combining multiple services.

Off course search.me is also freemium available… And soon will be bought by Google.
