Ideas ....

Postby paulsobczak » Mon Oct 26, 2009 9:21 am

I am giving some of my idea a place to hang out for awhile untill myself or other can get around to doing them. I invite everybody to contribute their ideas or even more awesome some realization.

newspaper/magazine printer - in store printer capable of printing any newspaper or magazine on demand similar to the Red Box DVD machines that have been springing up.


In web browser audio recorder - Enabling people to use the microphones on their computer to record liners for a radio station that I used to work at. I have seen it done, I think it can be done with javascript or equivalent.


3D printed mustaches - I am working on realizing this with my buddy over at Maker Bot, it should be awesome. I am also going to print a TC Maker Logo, but need to sketch it up first. I think a Kline bottle is also in the works.


TC Maker Stickers - I think we need to get some, and I think we need to distribute them to all of the the hackerspaces around because they have been asking for them.


EMF Headphones - a coil to pick up Electromagnetic Noise, an amplifier boost the signal and speakers inside headphones to listen with an audio out jack to listen with.


Sound canceling headphones - Is it possible to inject a sound like pink noise along with noise canceling technology to effectively create a quiet sound space.


Airplane Seats that lean back more - design seats that recline with out intrusion to other passengers in the same confines as current planes, I haven't explored this much but I think it's entirely possible to elevate the airplane seats a foot or two to allow for some type of reclination (perhaps not a word, but it felt so good writing it.)


Massive Audio Looper - 12 plus channel audio looper with SD card playing capacity.


software radio delay - i started working on this with someone at Pumping Station One but never finished up, basically a profanity delay to deal with the FCC regulations current hardware models sell for ~$1000 and there are few software solutions and no opensource one that I know of.


Ponoko Front Panels for Synths - I have been exploring this a bit with respect to the difficulty of creating professional front panels for synthesizers, I think using wood or acrylic and a laser cutter could prove to be effective and cheap. I am hopeful for the latter.
