Today, I only checked my twitter account once and this was the tweet I saw that gave me this idea. So thanks, Annick!
The automatic microwave is a microwave oven that scans and decides what needs to happen with its content. Whether it’s a cup of hot water or a bowl of soup, uncooked potatoes or a lamb shoulder, it exactly knows what to do with it, for how long, and the result is that it comes out perfectly hot, cooked or defrosted.
All ofcourse automatically, you don’t need to push a button for that. Also when you’re in front of the autowave, it doesn’t beep.
The intelligent motor helmet is a motorcycle helmet that has an earphone, microphone and a google glass-like visor that you can control with your voice and simple controls at the moto steering wheel. The first app i can think off is a clever GPS that boths combines itineraries planning, itineraries and speeding traps announcements. For the rest, it’s has some entertainment center functionality included (music, social media streams, …). I call it… the iHelmet. 🙂
It’s been a while since I added an arts idea but it’s a long time favourite of me. I’m really intrigued by the eyes of people and by extension but those of animals. Everyone has different ones and they are always nice to dive into. My idea today is to set up a small portal to enable people to upload images of their and other eyes into and recycle them in various ways; in posters, in wall paper, in packaging, … All eyes are tagged with categories so you can make your own shuffled collections of eyes. Whether you want only gray ones, green ones or cat eyes, a mixture of exotic animals, or by locations, you create your own query and with the outcome you can order new products with these eyes collections.
- “The best stories are told with the eyes. You just need the patience and have to be willing to listen with your heart.”
- “The eyes are useless when the mind is blind.”
- “The eyes are window to the soul.”
- “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”, said by Plato.
- “My eyes are an ocean in which my dreams are reflected.” ~Anna M. Uhlich

It’s a concept shop. A collaboration between two brands in which products that are created by different brands are being sold. It can be clothing, design, electronics, … Whatever really.
This idea is a very viable one. The business model is to invest in brick shops in both main shopping streets and upcoming districts and fill them with goods from e-commerce stores. The goal is to create a physical presence for small-knows e-shops, create exchange points to touch, feel and see goods. Online a portal site with these trusted e-shops will be made. It increases the trust in buying online due to the trusted certificate online and physical presence offline.
The money comes from monthly fees these e-shops pay to have a presence on the portal and in these brick and mortar shops. I actually thought about it when I was thinking about the pivoting options for ZOYOKO. But the upfront investment is way too big for me.
2 url’s, 1 idea. One in Dutch, one in English. It’s some kind of (bullshit) generator of what you could potentially do. It acts as an inspiration trigger to actually do something when you’re bored. You can make a clear choice based on categories or sentiment, such as outside event or music or happy or … Why not sex?
Simple to market. Easy one off scoring opportunity.
When I was younger, I always looked at punkers who were squatting buildings. I also visited some and some were quite nice. It had all the basics and the atmosphere there was unique. In Budapest you have the principle of Ruin Bars. Old, decayed buildings are transformed into community centers and bars. The best parties were to found there.
My idea today is to create a hotel network of guerrilla places to stay. You basically turn empty buildings and places into sleeping facilities with extra’s. You charge travellers for their stay and make money by offering extra services such as food, drinks and parties. Living adventurous for the B&B operators, adventurous lodging for travellers. Both will have an awesome time.
