Interest in Pinterest

If you’re creative you’ll love using Pinterest, if you’re not you’ll love using Pinterest because it will make you feel creative.

I’m sure you’ve heard of Pinterest by now if not just ask your web crawling nerd friends they’ll tell you all about it.

1 minute into using Pinterest

1 minute into using Pinterest and seeing shots from all around the world I was was drawn into the beautiful photography.  I look at a lot of stock photo sites and Flickr.  But some of these images are just stunning, for some reason I’ve never seen anything like these photos.  These photos are not just images of great looking places but products, and DYI projects I’ve never seen before.

Okay I’m off track, that will happen a LOT when you start using Pinterest.

1 minute into using Pinterest I was mesmerized by the amazing photography of far away places. Then I saw this thing that I thought I could do that.  I have one of those things if I just get a some paint and glue I could…  sorry

1 minute into using Pinterest I was mesmerized by the amazing photography of far away places.  I kept thinking I want to go to there and there and there….

PICK – CLICK – TRIP

Then I thought this would make a GREAT travel website!  Here’s how it would work.

  1. Pick the PICs of far away places.
  2. CLICK the Buy Button
  3. GO!

The website does the rest.

Other possible features:

  • Running Total ( but that might scare people )
  • Distance You’ll Travel Meter
  • How many stamps you’ll get on your passport
  • Path Designer so you can see where your trek will take you.
  • Comfort Level Meter, in case you’re a timid person and don’t want to go to far off the reservation.
  • Bucket List, you know for future trips.

Plane ticket, lodging, passports reminders, tours, mail holding and stopping the Sunday paper. Whatever it takes to get you going to make that an experience of a lifetime the site would just take care of it. It could happen within 3 click or 5 at the worst. Then you go in and noodle it if you really want too. Plus every picture you take while on that trip. Right! Ends up on Pinterest to sell more trips.

Stick that in your board Pinterest.

Thanks Dianna for sharing this site with me!

Panic Button

Look I made a USB Stick! Big Deal right? Well let me explain. I’ve been thinking about this device for a while and while it might look like a simple USB stick it’s not. It’s really a panic switch.

I think about this panic switch every time I hear about something bad happening to a child or a woman. This panic switch is on my mind a lot because of the 8 year old that was murdered while he was walking home by himself for the first time.  My heart goes out to the family.

The idea here is this is a call for help. Sure you can give your kids a cell phone but I’m not sure they will always be able to use it plus it might be pretty obvious to anyone doing some harm to someone they are making a call for help.  Think of it as that secret button the banker pushes when the bad bank robbers burst in.

This looks like a harmless USB stick. But once the switch is pulled this device would call all the programmed phone numbers, start broadcasting it’s location, sniffing for wifi, and listen in on it’s surroundings.

Features:

  • Built in Mic
  • GPS
  • WiFi Sniffer
  • Auto-dialer
  • Average looking USB Stick

The Cradle:
The Panic Switch is married to the Cradle via Bluetooth and only that device can reprogram or disable it.  It’s not really a USB stick and can’t be connected to anything other than that cradle.

It’s a panic switch that you don’t even have to think about it’s just one action and you’ve let the world know you are in trouble.  I’ve thought about this device for a long time and the idea of how cool it could look, or what the shape would be.  The more I thought about it it the more I realized it shouldn’t be something that stands out.  It shouldn’t give itself away as a safety device or a panic switch.  If the bad guy knows you have it they might take it away from you.  I wish cell phone companies would offer a device like this to parents at a low price point of about 59 bucks.  Seems like something that could be done.  What do you think?

UPDATE:
I’ve been contacted by several people that are looking for such a device. Simon is currently working on a similar product you can find out more about his idea at Pretty Panic. It’s a great idea, help support it.
