Whoa, wait a minute. Where will this light bulb be installed? Who specifically — or what— needs light to function? Could we consider other methods to illuminate the area? (side note: how much is needed anyway? how big is the area?) Some initial thinking: we might consider utilizing renewable sources to create fire, bioluminescence, or redesign all the materials to glow in the dark. Btw, what’s so frustrating about darkness in this situation? I have to work super late tonight so lets table the exploration process. The question actually is far more complicated than it seems on the surface. I’d reframe the problem. But that’s just my opinion.
idea: snap a photo of nutrition facts. get photos of what it’s really made of, rules of thumb, more useful stats in charts (caloric composition, glycemic index), suggestions.
a stranger i knew
so well, so long
a roving thought. where are you?
when i needed you.
your silence was honest.
all that chatter. were you listening?
since you told me
i was quiet and i was weak.
scared sick. not worthy.
when i told you. did it hurt?
does it sting? did you wonder?
why didn’t you ask? did you ever
forgive. just in case.
“draw something” meets “i am t-pain”.
player 1 receives three song choices. high, medium, and low for chart success. can listen to a 30 second itunes preview of each as a refresher.
player 1 hums the tune. audio is automatically tuned for pitch and vocal frequencies are removed.
if player 2 guesses correctly, a bounty of coins are showered upon all.
coins can be spent on avatar clothes, audio effects packages (ooh nice idea, patting self on back)
def. not an easy game to play in public - norms and background noise. but super fun in the right setting.
option: use front-facing camera to capture and send video of player humming that tune.
idea: recipe in a box delivery, subscriptions. includes all ingredients needed to cook that meal.

some top examples of software walkthrough videos i gathered up for a client. all do a pretty great job of balancing playful humor, brevity, visual style, and functionality details w/ strong / selective benefit statements.

slightly scruffy food, music, design lover is looking for a long term relationship with an apartment in nyc. must be 20 minutes from work (80 franklin street), gym (crunch), supermarket (let’s shoot for whole foods), and have laundry in building. your building must be quiet at all times after 9pm. plus points if you’re close to a park, coffee, the number subway lines, great takeout under $10 per meal. preferably no broker fee and you can’t cost more than a decent macbook pro per month. interested apartments should get in touch with a little about yourself. thanks.
idea: how many hours of the day do software licenses sit unused, like photoshop? what if someone could remotely access specific applications in a totally secure sandbox? rent it out for a nominal fee, like a few cents a minute. could add up…
idea: connect people who want to try before they buy with people who have things. option to set thanks with money, kudos points, a beer/coffee, etc.
