Ideas 1 (2018) - anything not having a computer software basis

  1. Plastic or Paper, which is better for the environment?
  2. Google search - max brenner belconnen said they do not do split payments cash card
    Google search - max brenner belconnen split payments
    Google search - all shops to offer split payments cash card
    I wanted to pay partly using my card and partly using cash, with myself the only person ordering.
  3. Google search - nbn fibre to the premises
    NBN with VOIP phone (a phone that works using data of the internet) is not sufficiently reliable to be used for emergency use or for alarms/security. NBN sometimes goes down for 30 minutes! We should in canberra have a landline phone using copper cabling, as well as the NBN using optical fibre to the house. Why would they use the copper cabling for NBN with the NBN optical fibre only going to the node, not to the house, which is slower internet and makes it impossible to have a 100% reliable landline phone as well!
  4. It seems to me that for RAID to work best, we would need two mirrors of each hard disk, so that there are three options for each bit of data and the system can pick the two that are the same if a third option is wrong/ inconsistent, ie, a consensus with the best two that agree out of three options, being the correct bit of data for each bit of data.
  5. Ice cream containers to contain scoops of ice cream, ie many sphere balls of ice cream, so that it's easier to serve
  6. (2018sep5) Universities to incorporate tutor assistance into the assessment system
    For example when a student completes an assignment if they received help from a tutor, they should be able to put something like the following into the references section at the end of the assignment document or into a thanks section at the start, "With thanks to assistance from my tutor Jevan Pipitone, Web: someurl Facebook: someurl Twitter: someurl LinkedIn: someurl" where someurl are web URLs for Jevan Pipitone, but at the moment the university system wants the student to complete the work 100% themselves which means if the student needs help from a tutor then the tutor is unable to request acknowledgement into the students assignment document since then the student would get into trouble for having someone else having helped them, so all this policy of the university does in not permitting others to help a student with their assignment is to result in tutors not getting the recognition they deserve for the help they do to students.
  7. Centrelink / Department of Human Services (DHS) Australia, could have different payment levels for pensions. When someone is in a paid job they often have various hourly payrate or annual salary or public service levels (AS01, AS02, Senior Officer Grade 1, etc) they can receive depending on the value the employer perceives they are getting. Centrelink/ DHS could have something like that too based on levels so that if they are getting a lot of value from someone on disability payment or a jobseeker payment such as newstart, a study payment such as austudy, or any payment, they can be shifted to a higher payment level, and if their value drops again they can be reduced to a lower level again, perhaps assessed on a 6-monthly basis with 6 months notice before the change occurs. As many levels as needed can be created to cater for the requirements of anyone's possible value.
  8. Google search - solutions for the environment and climate change
  9. Quantum Computer
    Quantum computer: three states, 1, 0, or spinning between 1 and 0 and after some time the spinning stops so it needs to be spun again if it's meant to be in that state. What about states of spinning at various discrete frequency options, for example the state could be 1, 0, or spinning at 5Hz, 10Hz, or 20Hz? Also states from the voltage which could be 1v, 2v, 4v, or 8v? The phase shift for the sine wave describing it's motion could be 0 degrees, 45 degrees, 90 degrees, so there are states that could be encoded there too. The waveform could take on other forms such as a sine, square, or triangle wave, as an encoding method for the information. Then we will need logic operations using all of those possible states and possible changes that can be done to the state.

  24. Google search - electronic whiteboards
    Universities and Schools mostly have whiteboards (sometimes blackboards) in classrooms. Sometimes there are multiple boards to enable many students to work on problems simultaneously in a workshop so that other people there can look at what they did. Sometimes even the foyers, entrance halls, corridors and other locations have whiteboards, so that ideas can easily be written down and shared amongst anyone wanting to see it. An improvement over a whiteboard/ blackboard is to have electronic boards, each a colour LCD screen that can be written on using a stylus pen, like what I have for my portable Palm TX PDA but much bigger the size of a university or school classroom whiteboard/blackboard. When writing with the stylus pen the underlying LCD monitor shows lines where the pen moves, and it can be switched to an erasor by selecting the erasor from the menu, thus avoiding the possible issue of getting whiteboard marker pen or chalk on your hand from trying to erase it quickly. When the board is full and needs to be erased, the contents would be stored as a high quality lossless PNG image file with the filename containing the current date and time, unit number, teacher/lecturer/tutor name, then at the end of the lecture the system would email all of the students and teacher and department a copy of all of the saved board images, or it could be zipped into a single compressed zipfile whose filename contains the date & time the zip was created, and uploaded to the university of school website for anyone who wants to download it, the boards would also retain a copy of the images for a week as a backup in case the emailing failed, with it having the ability to automatically upload the content to the department's website or ftp server via a network cable plugged into each board, and to support having a USB stick inserted to transfer information to it. Also all lectures/ classes/ tutorials would be audio recorded, which would also be available for download on the organization website, since there is no need to video it (avoiding the need to store large file sizes) since it is possible to see all of the boards contents as downloaded compressed zipfile containing all of it's images. The only classes that would need videoing are acting and dance classes and performances, since distributing audio downloads to anyone that wants them, does not tell sufficient information about what happened in the class (to be able to reproduce it again if they wanted, as per the scientific premise of experiment reproducability).
  25. Why can't I get a spoon with my drink at Boost Juice Australia to eat the nice remaining bits after?
  26. Google search -
    Pen that can scan a colour in the real world, and then combines it's inks so you can draw using the pen with that colour.
  27. Everything recorded and downloadable: Hopefully and possibly all in-person and virtual (online) events in the future will be audio or video recorded - video if the visual aspect is important otherwise audio plus a few photos and possibly powerpoint slides or a word document and chat history download (for interactions) may be sufficient to understand the event - and anyone will be able to download them later from the organization's website. This can include meetups, board/card games, pool/snooker/air hockey and other games, movies at the cinema, theatre productions, acting workshops and rehearsals and performances, music live bands, karaoke nights at venues, music jams where anyone can turn up and join in to make music, chess, professional events such as computing and engineering talks, etc. Having everything recorded and downloadable will be beneficial to many people who can get hold of content online easily from home via the internet, including people with disabilities that might want to run the download through various processors and filters (or even having multiple formats of the download) to make it in a suitable format for their particular disability. Also people can re-live their in-person attended past events in the future by watching them again anytime from their kept downloads. For example for a movie this would mean movie tickets would have a URL imprinted on it where the movie can be downloaded at home after the screening to keep/ rewatch any times in the future.
  28. Google search - primary school separate class for kids with a tablet
  29. Google search - projector with usb port for jpg png docx xlsx pdf mp3 mp4 avi
  30. Google search - solar cells targeting multiple light frequencies
  31. Could have an image rotator screen, displays a sequence of photos with usb and wifi interface capability to change them, on front of fridge
  32. Google search - "electronic receipt"
    Shops to have an option instead of printing a receipt for the customer, to transfer an image of the receipt and well as a spreadsheet document containing the transaction details, to the customer's mobile or palm PDA. Or the shop point of sale equipment could automatically upload every purchase details to a website where all customer's transactions for all shops are stored, that can be later downloaded by the customer as a spreadsheet for whatever date range they specify.
  33. Palm personal digital assistant (PDA)'s could have a GPS and digital camera built in, the GPS can be used to get location coordinates to tag the photos taken. It is best that palm PDA's do not have a phone built in, to keep it as a separate product from mobiles for people that don't want a phone on them while they are out and about. All digital cameras will have a GPS built in for location coordinate tagging of photos.
  34. Google search - self driving cars laser range finder interference
    If there are multiple self-driving cars on the road will their laser range finder reflections interfere with each other and give incorrect views of each car's surroundings? Perhaps nearby cars can use wifi to negotiate a different light frequency for each car
  35. Bionic contact lens
  36. Could have a spinning balanced read write head in a cd player and hard drive instead of spinning the item with data on it, also contactless
  37. Google search - rent advertisement internet speed
    Real estate for rent advertisements could include in the description what the fastest internet speed the premises is able to actually get, ie the real actual speed that previous tenants have had (upload and download). Since, if I was going to rent from somewhere, I would want to know that the internet speed will be fast enough for me to do making music with other musicians via the internet which I think requires around 14Mbps download and 1Mbps upload.
