Idea – Enhance Coal As Fuel By 3D Printing

The idea is perhaps not the first that comes mind. But what if you could 3D print fuel. Control its properties and composition completely or at least more than now. I got this idea from thinking about different forms of coal. If you could enhance them before combustion. So to get a higher highest temperature. For higher efficiency that is. I also took inspiration from the idea of creating 3D printed metal with very optimized properties.

So the idea is to make optimize our fuels like coal by 3D printing.

Idea – Refrigerator + Air Conditioner In One Product?

The idea is simple. We are told that opening the refrigerator door when its hot in the room is bad. It will only break the refrigerator and make the room even hotter.

But what if you could have an air conditioner plus a refrigerator in one product. Could this make things cheaper and more efficient. I mean with an air conditioner you release the heat outside. This is often overlooked for refrigerators as far as I know.

Here you release the heat outside for both the air conditioner and the refrigerator and at same time possibly share the inner workings of the cooling mechanism.

Another idea would be to make the refrigerator or fridge with tapered top. This to maximize efficiency. Like those Tipi tents.

Idea – Internet of jobs

The market for online products or Internet retailing seem to go well. However I think we need a public strategy to increase the number of online jobs.

I don’t know how to get to the Internet of jobs but I wonder if some of the obstacles of finding the right people can be can be partly avoided. I’m suggesting maybe we could have the possibility for employers to hire two person teams for online jobs. Here the idea is that people who work online will go out and seek to team up with good and knowledgeable partners. Thereby increasing the chance for employers to get a good team.

The search net will then become much larger for talented people and jobs opportunities could increase. So the idea is to allow people to be more successful if they cooperate. I think this idea could work for the Internet of jobs because of the scaling factor.

Idea – Price Site For Electric Cars?

The the idea is simple. With knowledge comes the courage to buy electric cars. We actually have good price sites in Sweden. Prisjakt and others. So the the idea is to create a similar site for electric cars. Now you don’t buy a new car every year. But without knowledge there could be a reluctance to consider electric cars. So in such a site you can list cars by range, models, price, manufacturer, popularity and other categories.

What I expect is that the list could be rather limited. If thats the case then manufacturers need to generate enough new models. So that the customers feel that their preferences are taken care of and at the same time they get a good deal. A price list of categories such as popularity ensures everyone gets good knowledge to make a decision.

Idea – Allotropes Of Carbon As A Higher Energy Storage Battery?

Everything can burn. Therefore I wonder if we really are using our coal energy storage to its fullest potential.

The idea is to transform coal using excess energy from solar or other sources. As the diamond is a form of coal there are other allotropes. So what I wonder is if there exists an allotrope of coal we can use as a better battery storage. As an example. The diamond can under high pressure withstand temperature around 3000 C. With high temperature you get higher efficiency.

Idea – Adapt Public Transport To Current Battery Technology

The idea is simple. We currently have success with some brands of electric cars. Namely Tesla. What I can’t understand is why not go after public transport. For one thing. The renew cycle is to long. Another is that the busses would require very large batteries. To solve this I think we should have electric minibusses. The most important reason is that the batteries could work for these sizes and weights.

So the idea is to use smaller busses with electric car battery technology. This might need more drivers but think of it another way. It will generate more jobs and zero emission is living space friendly.


Idea – Camping Site For Startups?

The idea is simple. To get as many startups going as possible. I thought. Why not make it very cheap. A fancy office in the city is not going to do it for everyone. So why not take advantage of the many camping sites out there in the country. Electricity is probably not going to be a problem. Public WiFi might. Perhaps some sites could attract these customers by getting Internet over cable. Otherwise you have mobile 4G.

I think the idea of people renting caravans in camping sites for startups actually is good. I mean if they can create a company later with many employees then they have generated jobs.

Speculation – Environmently Friendly Space Drive?

This is just my naive guessing. For an environmentally friendly space drive I wonder what would the rest product be. Since the stars produce a lot of radiation and at least our planet have a magnetic field. I guess this is what you use.

So my idea for a space drive is the following. You first create a “slow” moving ground field for which you then can push against. The ground field is the rest product the drive leaves behind.

I saw that the magnetic field component of light can generate a greatly amplified magnetic effect when traveling trough a non conductive material at the right intensity. I also happen to read that particles can self accelerate.

What if you can make light self decelerate instead or self slow down in vacuum. Would this not be similar to light slowing down in a material. If so I guess this could serve as a ground field.

Come to think of it. There should happen something when a particle self decelerate in space. So why could not we take advantage of electrons from a small particle accelerator. Make them self decelerate quickly and use the result for the forward motion.

Another thing is that if we master self deceleration I guess we could perhaps slowdown or stop asteroids.

Idea – Anticipating A Good Feeling Is Half The Movie Or 3D Game

The idea is simple. When you go on a trip or on a vacation you want to know what the scenery looks like. From images and by word of mouth. Anticipating this good feeling is half the trip. So I wonder. Could not film makers and 3D game creators take advantage of this. Engage our imagination in an easy way. In some games you have a map showing the scenery of different levels. This makes wonders on imagination. Something similar for a first person 3D game and movies should work. In my opinion a long movie quickly gets boring if it did not generate and withhold that anticipating feeling.


Test – Using A Drawing Tablet On The Raspberry Pi 2

Young people like to paint and the most important hardware for Linux is the next generation. With all the excellent software for Linux available for the raspberry pi 2/3. I thought. Why not connect a drawing tablet to my Pi 2. Said and done. Well not so fast. I had to change the operating three times. First Raspbian then Ubuntu MATE 16.04 LTS. Now 16.04 should have worked but it was to slow. There was a long delay when drawing in Mypaint. However MATE 15.10 worked like a charm. The drawing tablet was an old Aiptek.

As always I install zram-config to compress the memory and minimize system wait. It would be nice if there were at least a 32GB SSD built in on the Pi board. It would make the experience much faster than a faster CPU.

Job Idea – Connect Restaurants With TV Food Shows

Here is a short idea. Would it not be kind of interesting if we could taste the food they have in the TV food shows? The idea is to connect restaurants with shows. Online or on regular TV. I believe maybe this could work for restaurant in larger cities. So with this idea you could taste selected recipes.

Come to think of it. Is it possible to combine a sitcom with a food show? If not. Maybe just a comedy food show could do.

Idea – Farming With Trees And Outdoor Insect Friendly LED Lights?

The idea is simple. I wondered what benefits trees would have to agriculture. Its called agroforestry and you can read about it at Wikipedia. It has all kinds of benefits. Now I’m interested in the shading aspect of it. Shading reduces the amount of direct solar rays and I guess it will then protect the bottom layer.

So the idea is to have shading trees around the crops. To compensate for the loss of light maybe we could have insect friendly LED lights during day time. The difference is that this light from the LED’s don’t carry that much infrared rays or heat as it does from the sun. Preserving moisture in the soil.


Idea – Should There Exist A Divide And Combine Air Conditioner?

If I may guess a little. For more effective air conditioning. I wonder if you can gain some advantage by dividing air into its gas components and cool the one gas that has the greatest efficiency for cooling. Then recombine it into the usual air mixture.

Another idea would be. Since thermoelectric cooling plates can be connected on top of each other to achieve higher efficiency. I wonder if its possible to have two coolers connected in series. With two refrigerants maybe.

Idea – Solar Potential For Job Creation In Rural Areas

With climate change coming down on us. Mitigating another refugee crises seems wise. Then getting job opportunities to people is more important than ever. If there are to few jobs. Then they have to be created. So the idea is to support the creation of local solar powered businesses. With solar panels this could be done in rural areas and I think we could have a pay as you go system for small business. So the initial investment cost for them is kept down.

With jobs. Households could afford more solar energy. One thing I found on the net was a 12V thermoelectric boiling thermos rated at 80W. Maybe such a device could be used to disinfect a small amount of water. Inspired by this other devices could emerge that could run on a limited amount of solar panels.

All in all. Resistance to climate change will be easier if people have access to energy.

Idea – A Good Raspberry Pi Idea That Failed Testing

So with the success of the Raspberry Pi. I thought. Why can’t we teach programming remotely. To do this I would only need to stream the desktop from the clients Raspberry Pi. VNC did work but I failed to get any reasonable speed. For instance with a game engine like App Game Kit which exists for the Pi it would be nice to see a high fps screen capture of the desktop. Come to think of it. If I get this to work then I need to consider the CPU load. However the Pi 2/3 has 4 cores so it might still work. Considering a simpler solution I would watch the screen using standard VNC and share the compiled files to my own Pi and run them from there.

Maybe there exist a simpler solution. A website where two people can sign up and share a code window in the browser. Hopefully there also exists a smooth way to compile and run the code on your Pi.

Idea – Solar Parking Installation From Cars With Built In Solar Panels?

The idea is simple. Since with the number of cars we have in the world. I wonder if its an idea to have solar panels on the them. I thought. With solar panels we can let the cars cooperate and form a solar charging station. In a parking lot or in the middle of nowhere supporting a small village. So then in a sharing fashion you seed or draw power to charge your battery from the built in solar panels from other connected cars.

So even if the solar panel on your car is not enough to charge your car. The built in solar panels of many cars will.

Speculation – Does There Exist A Time Force?

The assumption is that “At any given time and point in space there is only one clock speed”. Since you have something like time dilation. Where two equal clocks tick at different speeds. I wonder if we could take advantage of this. If you have two or more systems with different clock speeds. Then if you could get the systems to overlap then there should be a force creating a single clock speed at all the points in the intersection. Maybe time dilation could be useful for something else other than to create a problem for clocks.

Speculation – Does There Exist A Time Force?

Further is there a balancing force that simplifies the time speed a particle should be at? So to keep the particle in the present. Not ticking to fast and not to slow.


Another question would be what happens if you construct an asymmetric magnetic mono pole. Do you get some net effect then?




Job Idea – Should There Exist The Concept Of A Generating Merger?

The idea is simple. Why should the merger of two companies result in a single company? In nature we don’t have this. Like the offspring we have in nature. Could two companies that are similar generate a third new smaller child company? I guess this could work because interesting things happen when we get out of the local minimum or trap of our own ideas.

So the idea is to do matchmaking between a single company and other companies. To see what new child businesses they can come up with. This idea is more of creating a generating relationship between two companies. Not joining two companies into one.

The reason to do this is because a “generating merger” will force companies out of their local idea space. At the same time it will be generate more jobs.

Idea – Purpose Built Monitors, Keyboards And More For Programmers?

The idea is simple. We have a lot of equipment for gamers. Like graphics cards, mice, keyboards and even chairs. For programmers there are not that many purpose built products specially for them. So I thought. Here is a market that has not been explored. Expert programming equipment. For example. Whats the difference between a keyboard for all purpose use or one for programmers. What do programmers want? I don’t know. But I want form to follow functionality. Enhance my capabilities and more.

If you could make the E-Ink screen display text much faster without flickering then we could use it as an additional monitor. In standard monitor size perhaps.

Todays laptops are not programmer friendly. For instance when running Linux. Being the programmers choice. I had to disable secure boot. Because otherwise it would not run the Wi-Fi drivers. I can understand the success of the Raspberry Pi mini computer. It does not restrict the freewill of its owner.


Job Idea – Improve The Mobile Kitchen With An Indoor Eating Cart Service?

The problem with todays mobile kitchens or mobile catering is that the weather need to be acceptable so you can eat outside. This problem should not be to hard to solve. Why not have a service for these small businesses? The idea is that you can call this service and they will roll out a mobile food cart or trailer next to your kitchen for people to sit and eat in. This way you have split the problem. You also may be the only driver. I think this idea is worth considering since it will be possbile to sell pizzas and other foods for which you need somewhere to sit.

Idea – Remote Support Over The Phone To The Client Machines AI Assistant

I think I got another solution for remote support. Not everyone can follow complex instructions. For instance. When a friend have problems with the TV. She could probably not connect it to the Internet for remote support. Maybe she does not even have Internet. What we could use is an AI assistant installed on the machines. The assistent should then be able to solve problems from instructions. Now. The smart thing is that the person in need of assistant can call his friend and let the friend talk to the device. That is. The friend talks to the AI assistant installed on the target TV, laptop or other machine. This is done over the phone. Just turn on the speaker function and place the phone near it.

To make things simpler. The support person could use text to speech from a terminal. This way the AI assistant don’t have that much problem recognizing whats beeing said. It could probably also distinguish commands from the other persons talking.

So the idea is to bypass the caller and for the administrator to talk directly to the machine by voice using text to speech instead of ones and zeros.

Its a kind of a different Internet Of Things.
