Idea #17: The Walking Advert

Since we were on the theme of advertising in Idea #2, I thought I’d continue 15 ideas later with another idea designed to harness businesses’ lust for exposure: make yourself into a walking advert.

“Ha!” I can hear you saying, “Sell out!” But hold your tongue a minute. You have sold out yourself and got […]

Idea #16: The Best Person in the World

The best singer, the best dancer, the fastest runner, the best at business – can’t we just stop beating about the bush and find out who is the ultimate and best person in the world? I’ve got plenty ideas about who it’s not (Simon Cowell), but unfortunately precious little evidence as to who it, in fact, is. Read this and find out (how to find out)… […]

Idea #15: Sell surprises

Whenever I go out into the world, my consciousness – my soul – finds itself squashed at the bottom of a “Pile on!” of options. Like a lot of other people, I would pay to have this weight of decision taken off my mind. Can no-one other than Father Christmas make a business out of surprises? […]

Idea #14: Remote mail for digital nomads

In about 20 years the ice caps are going to melt, flooding all the world’s major cities, leaving everyone homeless. Get a house on high ground while you can and at least make sure everyone can receive their post! […]

Idea #13: GPS alarm

iPhone, iBrain, iRemember, iAlarmed, iLost, iMaps, iFound, iFusion, iConfusion… If this sounds familiar, read this post. […]

Idea #12: Crowdsource band bookings

Why do I continue to give away ideas that will definitely be earthshatteringly successful, while I remain a modestly poor man? We should not pretend to understand such things. Let’s just get together with thousands of other people and order our favourite band to come and play in the nearest village hall, while the 20th century music industry charges furiously through the empty streets outside. […]

Idea #11: Augmented reality Facebook recognition

Sick of being surrounded by strangers with whom you are unable to play Mafia Wars? Rest easy, the problem is solved. Oh, and you no longer have any privacy either. Your personal sphere is a burst bubble on the breaking wave of augmented reality. […]

Idea #10: Advertise on money

To celebrate reaching Idea #10 – a global experiment! Ever feel frustrated at the amount of self-publicity the leaders of your nation get on bank notes. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it… […]

Idea #9.5: Remote graffiti

Get out the closet and let me see your hand. Not that one, the other one. Ha – what’s that?! A marker pen?? Look at the inside of this closet! I always knew you were a frustrated graffitist. Here, have a look at this idea. You can go out and play tag with all the other boys and girls, but you don’t even have to leave the house… […]

Idea #9: Pimp My Village

Pimping trash rides is one thing, but how about pimping poor people’s lives? Why not their whole village? And I’m not talking sex trafficking. For what I am talking, read on fellow pimp… […]
