Idea #26: Epic timelapse of future history

I recently posted on Amazing Stuff an exhibition of photographs depicting how places around the world have changed over time.

Putting this together I discovered that it’s surprisingly difficult to find photos of the same location, taken decades apart. Naturally, the problem is finding the older photographs – if you were one of the […]

Idea #25: Amazing Stuff website

To celebrate a quarter of a century’s worth of ideas (had I blogged at a rate of one idea a year (I’m trying)), here is an extra special idea – one I’m actually doing!

We are all aware that Ideas Exist is a blog of amazing ideas. But these are mostly figments of my obtuse […]

Idea #20: Digital will

Death comes to us all. Why not make a bit of money out of it, you scumbag? No, no, no… you’re providing a service… it’s a service… […]

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? […]

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 #8: Emotion-targeted marketing

Advertising these days leaving you cold with respect to the human condition? Feeling a little violated? Let the warmth flow back into your soul with this heartwarming tale of how marketing could be. Maybe making people feel happy could actually make, someone, somewhere, some money… One day… […]

Idea #1: A blog of ideas

Alas! Great and original ideas are dying left, right and centre. I can accept it no longer, so I have established this blog. From now on, I will share every original idea I have and every great idea I hear about. You! Why not send me your ideas too? […]
