Eliminate Media Piracy Printer Friendly Version
When we purchase Hardware that plays electronic Media of any kind, the manufacturer (or distributor/retailer) of the Hardware will have to encode the purchaser's PassKey (Last Name, SSN, etc.) into the Player. When digital media is purchased, the same will happen...the purchaser's PassKey will be encoded into the electronic Media. (Of course they may use their wife's/Friend's/Boss's PassKey if it is a gift.)
The Player will only play the media if the passkeys match. Of course there will be ways for pirate hackers to take a general media, pull the pass code out and insert another one... but if it is a complex enough system they won't want to spend their time working on a hack for weeks when they can just download the song or movie for $5. FileSwapping like Old Napster and Kazaa are then extinct.
If your HardwareKey fails.... go back to the retailer or manufacturer and have it reset or replaced. This is a fairly old idea in software. A Finite Element Analysis package for $15000 comes with a Hardware key. The Software periodically checks the serial port for the hardware key that came with the software...if it isn't there, it doesn't play. When will this technology catch on in entertainment??

Easy handling guitar Printer Friendly Version
I am a guitar player, and i always get tired from playing, and sometimes I touch a cord that I shouldn't touch when I am playing on the other. I think that a mechanical system could be added to the electric or accoustic guitar that resembles the piano keys, so when u press on the key the cord will vibrate.

Digital Voice Beat Recorder Printer Friendly Version
There are some people who are really good at making their own beats into a song by voice. For example, use your imagination for the following line: umm da da da da   umm da da da da   umm da da da da (the umm's have a low pitch and the da's are fast higher pitch sound). Of course quality songs are a lot better. If a musician wants to make a song out of his voice he records his voice. If he wants to replace his voice with musical instruments, he can do that too. In order for HIM to make a quality duplicate of his song with musical instruments, HE needs to know how to write music and how to play music. This process consumes an extremely large amount of time to be GREAT at. We can now use computers to record the sound produced by an individuals voice and make it digital. The verbal beats would be replaced by digital beats matching the same pitch. Together we would make a digital song recording of the verbal beats.

The beats of a persons voice are not always the best sound quality. Trying to verbally make the sound of a drum is impossible (but sometimes very close). Now we can replace all of the verbal beats with a digitally prerecorded drum drumming the same pitch. If we sing verbal techno, we can change it into real digital audio that was made on a computer. The greater library of digital sounds, the greater our verbal songs could be made into. We would not have to spend all the time learning how to write and play. Now we can record verbal songs digitally and then digitally manipulate them.
