Cool Pillow

There is a group on Facebook I FLIP MY PILLOW OVER TO GET TO THE COLD SIDE that had 710,783 members some 2 years ago and now 915,919.

From the group’s description:
"Do u have trouble sleeping? Do u find urself waking up in the middle of the night, and the only remedy to a good night's rest is turning that pillow over so u can feel the cold side on ur face and head. Thought u were the only one who did this? think again. If you experience this same issue night after night, this is the group for you."

I bought the product Chillow, thinking it was the ‘cure’ even if I was wondering how it could keep a constant temperature. Unfortunately it did not work as I had expected so I had to return it.

The pillow was too cold at the beginning so I had to put my palm under my head, otherwise it would have been too uncomfortable to sleep on it and in the morning it was as warm as a ‘normal’ pillow.

The solution should be an electric pillow (like an electric blanket) so you can adjust the temperature and keep it constant.

The market would be huge. If 700,000 900,000 Facebook users cared to join the group perhaps there are at least 10 mil people in the world bothered by a warm pillow so if only 1% would buy the product it would mean $10,000,000 profit (considering $100 profit per product).

Roger Waters Concert on Dvd

I went to the concert part of his 2010/2011 tour and I wish Roger Waters released a DVD after each concert. I would be interested in the DVD of the concert I went to not the DVD of the tour.

I am sure he would make lots of money, because almost everyone who went there would buy it.

100 Sport Shoes in One (Kit Shoe)

A shoe would be covered in Velcro or other suitable material and the customer would buy a kit of patches to cover his/hers shoe - to customize it so to speak  so s/he would be able to get lots of combinations. I realize this would be a fad appealing mostly to kids but perhaps it would be worth looking into it.

I am no graphic designer to illustrate this concept, but some time ago I found a few web pages which give an idea about it:






For an art project children painted the shoes. Of course the shoes were spoiled so why not achieve almost the same result by using a Velcro shoe + kits.

Also, there is a Chinese company that already produces shoes that can have
different images attached,

so something similar to my idea but not to the extent I envision (i.e. fully 'customizable' shoe).

Perhaps my idea is not so far-fetched as Ralph Lauren was selling at some point 'Paint Your Own Polo' kits .

This is an ad for a charity run:

New iPhone like Motorola Atrix

Apple should release a new iPhone, that can be used as a fully functional laptop.
It would be similar to the Motorola Atrix, that I am sure will make a huge impact.

Use It or Lose It

If a blog has not been updated in a while (1 year let's say) the name should be made available to other people who could make better use of it.

For example

Or even better charge $0.99/year. Google could make some money here and $0.99 is not a big amount so everyone can afford it. It keeps the blogger somehow committed.

Find one's lookalike

To Face.com

You should set up a site findyourlookalike.com
People upload their photo, the software runs and the site informs the user whether a lookalike has been found.
A modicum fee will be charged for a successful find.
Of course, the key is building a critical mass of users that are willing to find their lookalike and would upload their photos.
