Edsel's Crazy (and Not-So-Crazy) Ideas
Edsel's Crazy (and some not-so-crazy) Ideas
These are just some (crazy??) ideas that come across my mind as I go on
with my daily activities. Most of them come to me while driving since
that's probably the only time when I'm not doing something which
requires my full concentration.
I've got a few other ideas that I was unable to write down. As a
result I have forgotten them. I hope they will come back to me.
- There should be a law prohibiting construction of buildings where
roads already exist. This way there won't be traffic jams caused by
building contstruction crew and machinery.
- Someone should invent an "auto-cleaning/wiping windshield". This
can be done by placing a detector inside the car on the dash that is
pointed outwards through the windshield. It basically is a light
sensor. Another sensor is placed outside the car. They both measure
the surrounding brightness of the area. If the inside sensor detects a
lower ambient light going through the windsheild, then it signals the
windsheild washer to turn on, to clean the windshield. If the internal
sensors can be made thin and transparent, millions of these can be placed
on a thin layer of plastic that is placed on the inside of the windshield
to provide better accuracy.
- They should invent a chip that can be implanted into the human
body, which attaches to the brain. The chip should be capable of being
triggered by brain waves. The chip should remain inactive until the
wearer makes a conscious decision and says "record this idea". And the
wearer then just thinks about the idea, and it is recorded in the chip.
This way, if you are driving, and you come across a bright idea, you
won't have to stop and write it down. It'll help you in remembering
these ideas. The action of stopping to write it down, causes me to
forget the idea. Best of all the idea is recorded as an "idea" or
"thought" so it will not be written in words. This provides greater
accuracy since there is no need to describe it. When it needs to be
recalled, the thought is flushed back into the brain, just as if you
thought about it then. If you think in pictures, you'll see pictures,
if you think in color, you'll experience color. If you think in
feelings, you'll experience the feelings again, if you think in odours,
you'll smell the odours. It's kind of like a notepad/tape-recorder but
