    I'm sick to death of people saying I never post anything of value, so here it is.

    Since I was about 17 I have always kept a A6 notepad with me and a pen, you know when you're lying in bed and you have a great idea but in the morning its gone... well I've been recording all my thoughts like this. It helps me be productive and 8 years later here is a list of great start up ideas I have had.

    I won't waste anymore time, they are ideas that could be local freelance things, to ideas that could generate literally billions:

    • one day a week where twitter bans links, and only allows original thought
    • solar patio umbrellas that tilt and follow the sun
    • office chairs with hard reset buttons for height and tilt settings
    • food labels that scan the fat content of the persons hand and adjusts serving size from there
    • pots and pans with detachable handles so they actually fit in a dishwasher
    • expirations dates for mobile apps that have not been used in XX days and automatically delete them.
    • fingerprint scanners for basketballs so the ref knows who last touched them
    • news app that shows you news you read 1 year after it was posted so you know how wrong or right they were
    • bubble prediction algorithms
    • suitcases with batteries in them so you can charge devices as you travel
    • turn by turn GPS units for super markets
    • TSA metal detector with lint roller attachment
    • email app that turns the unsubscribe link into a large button
    • responsive powerpoints
    • wearable fog machines

    • hand brakes for swivel chairs
    • a pill to remove caffine from your body so when you have a shit coffee you can have another
    • cancer vaccine
    • Fuck it, lets try it is a good strategy
    • large magnifying lenses for skyscrapers to melt snow before it hits the floor
    • heated sock draws
    • chip bags that open on the long side
    • oatmeal-raisin cookies need a new design, they look too much like choco chip
    • remote control exploding credit card for when they are stolen from you
    • reverse take out - they take the food from your fridge and give it to people less fat than you
    • frozen turky and oil as rocket fuel
    • headphones with proximity sensors to lower volume when people approach
    • seat cushions that inflate more the longer you sit on them
    • heat lamp umbrellas
    • teflon toilet bowls to stop skidmarks
    • wifi enabled coffee cups that notify the cafe that you're on less than 10% and need refill soon
    • white noise generators for public toilets
    • manual transmission electric cars, because automatics suck
    • dog walking robots
    • dryer units that create socks from left over lint
    • dating website for people to match up mcdonalds monopoly pieces
    • presliced frozen pizza
    • a social network where you just talk about the social network and if it will be around in 6 months
    • predictive horns for cars
    • twitch.tv for putting together Ikea furniture
    • chop sticks with soy sauce reservior
    • on-demand call dropper app
    • airplane mode for people
    • moving walkways that let you adjust the speed when you're the only one on them
    • free wifi for those who volunteer to have their bags checked at airports
    • airbags for the corners of sharp edged furniture
    • stress ball battery chargers
    • dronebrella
    • domain service that buys your mis-spelt URL's and 301's them to it
    • special paper optimised for paper cuts, for lawyers, taxes, accountants, parking tickets... ect
    • firworks packed with mosquitto repellent
    • silent soda cans
    • emergency vehicles that blast their sirens over your car radio instead of deafening everyone
    • pillow that uses gas to make you sleep faster
    • twitter feed that explains sarcasm
    • ConCon - conference for conference organisers
    • air mattress you can remotely deflate to encourage people to leave
    • drone baseballs, for celebrity first pitches
    • mattresses with beer holders
    • spam folder for physical mail boxes
    • drones that hide ringing mobile phones while the person is away from the office
    • forks with thermometers to avoid ruining your mouth
    • TV channel tabs
    • noise canceling ear buds for moments where your girlfriend talks shit to you
    • reverse air hockey tables that suck items to your desk while you move them
    • disapearing ink pens for meetings, you won't look at the notes again so theres no point wasting paper.

    I legitimately have a 35L box full of notebooks full of ideas like this.

    I could post 50 ideas a day for the next year and still have ideas left over.

    Some people are geniuses, some people struggle on using the forum search option.

    I can't believe I went through all this and actually put thoughts in it.

    The only thing I could thing of is farts.


    That would be actually valuable. I wonder why theres not authority youtube in the field. Or there's probably tons in the making but they didnt manage to end mounting the furnitures
