Radio Sports Commentaries Printer Friendly Version
Here’s what is probably a common experience for those who listen to broadcasts of sports events on the radio. You are happily listening to the commentary, when it is rudely interrupted by someone in the studio turning off the commentary and giving score updates from other matches. Now this is fine if you want to know those other scores, but it can be very irritating if you are concentrating on the match being broadcast.
Television solves this problem by visually displaying the score updates in print at the bottom of the screen. The viewer can choose to continue to watch and listen to the game being televised, or choose to read the score updates.
The challenge for radio is this. We need to invent a way of broadcasting the updates from other matches without disturbing the main commentary for those who wish to continue to listen to it. In effect we need to broadcast two conversations at once in such a way that listeners can easily understand whichever one they choose to listen to. If the score updates were given in a quiet and very different voice to the main commentary (eg by using a voice of the opposite sex) would that work? Perhaps the studio could use special computer programs to modify the sound of the sports updates so they would be maximally different to the voice of the main commentary. Or maybe there is some other solution to this problem.

Graffiti program for the new WII platform.

2. A graffiti game, which would pit 2 or more graffiti artists against each other online as a virtual graffiti "slam".

Interactive Golf Printer Friendly Version
This is more of a software game design idea. I have had it for several years now and I know I am not going to get around to doing it so I am throwing it out there because I would love to see it done.
You all know how they have golf video games that you can play against people online. What I think would be great is if they made a game where you can actually play against the real pros during a real tournament.
Say the tournament starts on Thursday and you get up in the morning and start up the game and get matched up with Tiger Woods. When he actually tees off, you see a computer image of him teeing off and his shot. Now it is your turn and you tee off. You play the entire match with him and then you play the next day and are matched up accordingly on your score.
We have the technology to do this ... all matches are filmed live and the internet makes it easy to do this. I just think this would be a great market for everyone to want to get involved (PGA, game designers, and such).
Reward: A couple games and a little credit for the thought.
