or sometimes just a passing thought.

Party Phone 2000

Date of Original Idea: Yesterday

A smart phone app that simulates the party phone of yesteryear. You pick up to dial and there is already a conversation going on. Or you’re chatting with a friend when Ms. Kravince picks up and tells you she needs to call Alan before he leaves work.

It would be best if it randomly assigned the groups of each party, and it changed every so often. You can sell it parallel under “random connection failure” type apps as well.

1000 Piece Puzzles with 1200 Pieces

Date of Original Idea: Jan 24, 2013

Puzzles with extra pieces. Should be easy for a puzzle manufacturer to take one puzzle and throw 1/5 of its pieces into each of 5 other puzzles (same or different picture, doesn’t matter). Then you have the extra challenge of trying to find a place for an eye here or an extra leaf there. It should only increase the price of the puzzle in the 120% range, but you could easily charge 122 or 124% of the normal puzzle.
