A TV Day in Your Life Printer Friendly Version
On dvd, an entire day of tv from a day in the 50's or 60's. Commercials and all. Let's say nyc market. Lots of us old baby boomers from there. I know I was a tv addict. The old cartoons gigantor, astroboy, and 8th man. The soupy sales show. That weird show on channel 5 with the chin puppets. Dawn of sesame street and the spanish stuff. Time tunnel, my mother the car, gunsmoke, my three sons, laugh-in, voyage to the bottom of the sea, hogan's heros, star trek, lost in space, mr, chicken, it's about time, the dating game, dark shadows, real saturday morning cartoons, davy and goliath, twilight zone, the outer limits, ed sullivan...
There were only a handful of channels. 13, 11, 9, 7, 5, 4, and 2. Low res black and white moving to color somewhere in the 70's?
Ok, major legal trouble with copyrights, but that's what lawyers were created from the sewer slime for. The station program records might still exist. the commercials might still exist. Hell, the equipment to play the old format recordings might still exist.
Reward: a copy

Program that Calculates Exceptional Emotional Motivators Printer Friendly Version
A program that can be used to calculate statements or pictures that are "exceptional" motivators for health.
Such a program can be based painstakingly upon meta-data and other user information, and then make use of major personality information cohorts (sociological data coordinated with personality surveys and other such materials). The result is a specially designed device or program that takes a special place in someone's life by providing non-chemical, but very desirable motivation. This could play a role in treating minor depression or motivation problems; and also serve the purpose of encouraging healthy attitudes, such as eating properly.
Reward: I would like to buy such a device, if I knew it could work. It has to be complicated, but seemingly simple on the surface. No one's scared of a parser anymore, unless it claims that it's psychic.

Digital hand-held nutritional monitor Printer Friendly Version
A portable hand-held device that incorporates a digital bar-code reader, memory for data storage, and usb port could be used with appropriate programming to monitor nutritional intake with real-time convenience. The reader would allow a user to scan the product's bar code for identificantion of the food, and then search its database for "nutrition-fact" data for the product to give a running total of nutritional intake over a day or other time increment.
This would require a digital database of packaged foods with their "nutrition facts" on the device, and also ideally easily downloadable updates for users. Periodic updating of the database through the usb port would allow new products to be added or old ones modified. The ability to select generic foods, like fruits, vegetables and meats, easily would be necessary.
A desirable feature would be to allow users to program a diet and download it to the device, so that a running total of calories, carbs, proteins, fats, etc. could be maintained through the day, and even suggestions made about foods that would stay within the diet for a given meal. Uploading of actual intake data from day-to-day could be used for longer term assessment and correlations to weight-loss or other health issues like diabetes, or high cholesterol levels.
Reward: Healthier people.
