Idea – Woho Got The M-audio Midi Keyboard To Work With My Raspberry Pi 2

I finally got the old midi keyboard M-audio Radium to work with my raspberry pi 2. I’m so glad. It has been in the apartment storage for so long. Now I can do everything on a pi with mobile as the screen. Program a game and make music with a simple midi keyboard and LMMS as the music software.

This is what I love about Linux.

To get it working

I used midisnoop on the pi to verify that the midi keyboard was working. After plugging in the keyboard you can check with ’aconnect -i’ in the terminal and it should show up. I had to do ’sudo apt-get install midisport-firmware’ in the terminal first.

Planning to do a pixelized international karate game. ikPixel.

Idea – Food Delivery Subscription For Pregnant Women?

Eating right is very important. Therefore I wonder if we could as a service unload some of the work done by the family in getting the food on the table. I mean. The list of different food items is pretty big.

We already have food services. Could they also offer something adapted for pregnancy.

Maybe ensuring that the family got these types of food in the needed frequency is as important as having written documentation . Or maybe more important.

Important Language Learning Idea – Dual Language Subtitles For TextTV And Youtube

The idea is very simple, cheap and effective.

Why don’t have a text tv overlay with two languages? With text tv. You know the old technology. We have an option to show subtitles or simply no subtitles. So why not mix for instance Arabic text and Swedish text for our news and morning shows. Together as one connected subtitle.

I think this could be an effective way to learn a new language like Swedish. This because its easier to learn visual text than to remember spoken words. Here you have everything at the same time. No reason to limit the learning experience.

For language learning in general. The will be an important idea if we do this for youtube or other online video.

That is. In youtube we should have the option to show two subtitle languages at same time.

Project Idea – Solar Ready Linux PC (Raspberry Pi + Smartphone + USB-Keyboard + Powerbank)

The idea is simple.

I was looking for a way to program on the phone and I think I found an interesting setup.

What I used was:

Smartphone (android)
A raspberry pi 2
USB Keyboard
Powerbank (5000mAh battery)
2 USB phone charging cables
Pillow (to lift both the keyboard and phone)

VNC viewer (android app)
USB Tethering (share Internet and connect with the Pi)
PIXEL (raspbian powered os on the raspberry pi)

To start with.

I connected the pi to the smartphone, keyboard and powerbank. You only need a usb charging cable for this. To use the phone as a computer screen you need VNC viewer. To connect you can use Internet sharing by USB. This will make it possible for the vnc viewer on the phone to connect the vnc server on the raspberry pi.

Then when your done. Why not put the phone and the keyboard on a pillow and the setup feels as good as a laptop. Sure the screen is smaller but since VNC has automatic scrolling when moving the mouse it does not matter so much. Just increase the font size. VNC has a built in mouse that works just fine. No need for an external.

I was surprised the setup worked so fine. Since it runs on a powerbank you could charge it with a solar panel.

Voila! And you get yourself a cheap solar mobile Linux PC.

Idea – Code Using A Chatbot

I was wondering how to improve programming on the smartphone. Then I got the idea that maybe its possible to code using a chatbot.

The idea is that by having a conversation with the chatbot. The bot could generate code, answer questions or provide guidance. For instance on error messages the bot could provide additional information given questions from a novice programmer.

I believe this idea opens up many possibilities.

Idea – A New Text Based Programming Language Adapted For Writing On The Phone ?

My idea is simple.

We have a lot of programming languages like c++, python and others. But they are not so phone friendly. So why not invent a new programming language adapted for smartphones or feature phones. With their small screens and slow typing keyboard.

The reason could be to teach programming to a bigger part of the world. Those who only have computer that is the phone. To be able to learn a little programming they probably don’t need to write super long code. However I think the knowledge of writing simple text based code could go a long way.

The phone is the most common computer. We should have a free and open source programming language system on it.

Idea – Could You Improve Your Reading Skills By Learning How To Guess Words?

Sometimes my eyes doesn’t focus properly because I am tired. Then it occurred to me. How much is reading and how much is guessing the word correctly. I assume this is an important skill especially for those who have trouble reading. Those with dyslexia for instance. I don’t know the best way to practice the guessing technique but I thought a first try would be to blur the text with different strengths and sizes.

So my idea is that by guessing the blurred text you get better at guessing the words and also at reading the text. Since your not so affected by poor visual quality.

I think this could be made into a teaching app. Guess the sentence of words from a blurred image.

Another idea is to have a ruler. In Linux this is easy. Just create a black bar in GIMP and then display it using the terminal command ’display’. Set the window to always on top for the image of the ruler and you good to go.

Livelihood Idea – Basic Online Course For Using A Sewing Machine ?

The idea is simple.

Why not leverage the Internet to help people make a living using a sewing machine. Inspired by online courses. Like MOOC’s. Could not some major manufactures of these sewing machines help sponsor a basic online course for sewing.

To make this a global course I would like to push for sewing machines that can be powered by limited amount of solar power. Like a full size but low power direct current sewing machine.

To make things easier for those who then want to buy handmade pieces. I wonder if links to the participants business pages at facebook for instance could be shared at the site.

Idea – Fonts With Multiple Variations For Each Letter

My idea is simple.

If all the text in the book look exactly the same I assume its harder for the brain to remember it. I believe you need a little variation to call upon the handwriting recognition wet ware in the brain.

Therefor I think there should exist fonts that outputs variations of the characters without them looking all to different. Just as much variation one would think looks good.

One simple way to solve this could be to store the variation vector images for each character. So that maybe you have 5 variations of A’s and so on.

Idea – Does Physical Bodies Emit Invisible Light Dependent On The Velocity?

My idea is simple.

I assume a cooling mechanism in the physical world is emission by light. That is. Energy (light) removal from a body.

A thought experiment would then be that physical bodies emit invisible light dependent on its kinetic energy.

I guess this because if there is a maximum velocity for mass then any energy input that would result in a higher kinetic energy would have to be removed.

The fastest way to remove energy is by light. Hence bodies should be able to emit a kind of light dependent on the velocity.

Idea – Dedicated Hand Held Device For Scratch Powered By The Raspberry Pi ?

The idea is simple.

Why not put together a dedicated device running Scratch games powered by the raspberry pi zero chip.

I think you need to make a dedicated product if you are going to include batteries. So this should just be powered by Linux and the raspberry pi. Not for the kids to put together.

Then you have your raspberry pi 3 to program the games and the dedicated hand held game device to play on.

I think this could be very interesting.

Idea – Smart Path Recognition

Today was a sad day. Not only for Russia but for the whole world. I can’t say I know Russia. I mean its a big country and it should not be this way. I believe we need all the brain power we can get in this world. To adapt to climate change. To innovate.

I think you can innovate much faster and generate new information by looking at previous accomplishments and writing up hindsight stories. If they had done X and Y they would have figured out the hard part much easier. So if you can make the innovation process sound much smarter than it was then its a good thing.

By reading perfected innovation processes. Those in hindsight improved stories then your brain would learn to recognize smart paths.

Idea – Vertical Crops?

I was wondering if one could adapt the crops to a vertical grow path. Instead of layering soil in the air for vertical farming. That is. Instead of vertical farmland we have adapted vertical crops. Similar to vines, bushes and trees.

Also since rice is so important. Are there variates that could grow vertical?

Is there a better yield for bigger rice grains that you can later break up in smaller parts. That is. If you have a god rice variety that outputs twice the size of an ordinary jasmine rice. Why not just break such rice grains in two.

Idea – Link To The Job Seekers CV From The Mobile Phone Stored QR Code ?

The idea is simple.

Could job seeking become easier if you take advantage of the Internet and QR codes?

The idea is that job seekers could have their CV on a website and carry a generated QR code as a link. The idea is that the CV or PDF is automatically transferred to the employer just by them scanning a QR code.

Employers could set up self scanning service device for the QR codes and job seekers could send them the CV from it.

Idea – Record Your Exercises For Your Motivation

The idea is simple.

Why not record your training or exercises for future reference and motivation. An idea for a startup is to have some professional review the uploaded private videos to help and pep talk the participants. This idea is meant as a motivation tool in pursuit of a healthier life style especially for those adults with a weight problem. Being overweight raises your risk for diabetes .

Idea – MovieGame Experience

My idea is simple.

Would it not be fun to make a MovieGame. With todays advanced consols. It would be possible to cut in games in a movie. So with an action adventure film and at selected times in the movie your prompted if you want to play a related scene in a game.
Here you could continue the movie only if the player is successful.
So this could be a way to enhance older movies or new. That is with the movie running on the game console.

Political – Sharing Economical Cost By Switching To More Beneficial Government Loans ?

This is not my field. But I think might have something of a peace project type of an idea.

I wonder. Could the initial cost of taking in many refugees be shared among the countries of the world? The idea is that more countries would be more inclined to do so if this is the case.

Then maybe an idea would be that there are beneficial country size loans or write offs that could be offered by the world community.

Since this should be an efficient use of money. There should be a requirement for these loans and write offs that the refugees get into the workforce in a short time period since arrival.

I believe this could be seen as a peace project and as an investment in people.

Idea – Stone Age Inspired Energy Extraction ??

My idea is simple.

Why not see if electricity powered friction could be used together with burning of coal, gas or other fuels.

Philosophically this represents an option so it should be beneficial for something. Like energy extraction maybe.

In the animation the rectangular box is the thermo photo voltaic cell. The device that turns heat into electricity. The cylinder is used as the heat absorber from the source and I put some friction generating cylinder on the other side.

The cylinder that makes the friction is suppose to rotate at a high rate. Powered by an electric engine making friction. Friction might be used for getting those high temperatures for the TPV cell.

I don’t know what the resulting effiency will be but maybe friction could enhance energy extraction. I mean friction is very connected for driving out heat from a material. Its not a perpetual motion machine though.

However I wonder what the temperature could be for the sparks generated from the friction interaction. I mean. If you light a match in strong winds it will quickly burn out. Spark elements are very small and seem to last in high velocity.
