Creativity Wasted

Brainstorming and sharing ideas is the funnest part of the creative process. We decided to skip the boring part of actually making stuff, and just do the fun part

Slideout Front Entry Room (Tom Walma)
Idea: To replace the typical front door of a house with a "front entry room", for which, leading outside, there are two automatic sliding doors (one that opens side-to-side, and one, like an inch away, that opens upward), and leading inside there is another automatic sliding door. The purpose of this little entry room is to a) allow delivery men to put packages into the room so they don't get stolen off the porch, b) to keep the heat/AC in the house (especially for tiny houses), and c) to eliminate the chance of a swinging door smacking into someone heading through the door in the other direction at the same time. Also: the front entry room could collapse like an accordion or fold up to be flush against the wall when not in use (especially for tiny houses); the risk of it failing or giving someone a claustrophobic panic attack; stories of falling injuries, including Ben's story of falling off a statue at a sports stadium Idea: To replace the typical front door of a house with a "front entry room", for which, leading outside, there are two automatic sliding doors (one that opens side-to-side, and one, like an inch away, that opens upward), and leading inside there is another automatic sliding door.

Dead Man's Switch App (Tom Walma)

Dead Man's Switch App (Tom Walma)
Idea: An app that you launch before doing a mildly dangerous activity, and if sensors in your electronic devices (phone, Apple Watch, FitBit, AirTags, etc.) indicate that an emergency has occurred (examples: losing Bluetooth contact with an AirTag hidden in the clothes of a kid that you're babysitting might mean that he wandered out of the yard; a sudden downward acceleration detected on an Apple Watch while you're climbing on a ladder might mean that you fell off), or if you fail to confirm that a dangerous activity has safely completed within a certain period of time (example: while walking to your car at night, if you don't press an "I'm safe" button on your phone within 5 minutes, you might have gotten mugged), an emergency protocol (such as contacting the police or a kid's parents) is automatically performed. The app does NOT use AI and therefore you have to tell the app what activity you're doing so that it knows, for example, if a sudden acceleration of an Apple Watch is an emergency. The app would be pre-programmed with a list of common dangerous activities, and, for each one, ways to use sensors in electronic devices (emphasizing the electronic devices that you own) to detect emergencies. Also, you could customize the app by adding new dangerous activities and new ways to detect emergencies. Also: the police might get sick of false alarms from the app; a possible AI extension of the app which monitors what you're doing and interjects before the emergency occurs (by alerting you or shocking you with a shock collar); describing a person as "cookable and lovable" Stefanie Ann (Podcast: facebook.com/Sanctioned-by-Stefanie-104102588188198 Podcast: podbay.fm/p/the-milf-and-the-millennial Webcast: Knuckleheads Comedy Open Mic: facebook.com/FiresideInnDiveBarr instagram.com/thedownriverdiva facebook.com/stefanie.brewer1) JD The Smile Hustler (twitter.com/smilehustler01 instagram.com/smilehustler01 facebook.com/JD-the-smile-hustler-154544487899196) Aaron Sorrels ( Podcasts: Well Metaversed and Clean Comedy TIme Soapstone Comedy Club on Horizon Worlds) Tom Walma ( twitter.com/thomaswalma twitch.tv/gameymcfitness) This podcast is part of Planet Ant Podcasts ( podcast is powered by Pinecast.
