Pepfly

Pepfly is built on the idea that brief experiences of positive emotion can have a powerful effect over time. Many of us already search the web for content to inspire us, make us laugh, or remind us of the beauty around us. Pepfly is a new way to find, save, share, and enjoy what moves us. Pepfly recognizes the words you use to describe emotions and make sense of them in psychological terms. It connects you to a piece of media that might work for you and finds patterns in your ratings so it can make better recommendations.

The Cure is (Already) Out There

The problem isn't finding a cure, it's bringing it to market. Drugs like "DCA" and "GcMAF", can already cure HIV and put common cancers into remission. These claims are supported by peer-reviewed medical research. Why, then, are these treatments not evaluated by the FDA and made available to the public? Answer: these substances are already in the public domain, so pharmaceuticals can't profit from them. The solution is to fix the public policy that motivates this behavior by allowing companies to compete for time-limited, exclusive rights to manufacture and sell the public domain treatments. Win-win.

Post-Darwinian Evolution of Genes as a Service

Pre-Darwinian evolution operated on the basis of open source IP. Darwinian era introduced speciation, sex and death of a cell. Post-Darwinian evolution based on Synthetic Genomics will enable cross-pollination and ability to teleport genes between species and cells. Cells will become biological computers with I/O and R/W with programmable selection of metabolic pathways. Morphogenesis of cells will enable polymorphism of new species. We propose to create in vivo programmable biological cells with an open source IP capable to accept diverse metabolic pathways and customizable reproduction. These programmable biological cells will use teleported Genes as a Service when-and as needed.

Inter Connected Sports

Imagine a system of gyms (with stat-tracking equipment and facilities), sport leagues (with tracking and recording), and social networking (based around health and exercise) that could encourage kids to exercise more and eat healthier though virtual and physical incentives. With the help of friendly peer pressure, accountability, online gaming, and rewards, we could renew the interest in sports that has fallen wayside to video games and online activity. Each child gets an online account, which is advanced through physical activity. The only way to level up is to go out and play!

Lifewave Non-transdermal patches

These are the first products that encompass the energy medicine description. They are non-transdermal patches that offer pain control and energy to the body without any medication or chemical. They contain organic compounds that contain a crystalline matrix that when applied to the skin will offer changes to the bodies' acupuncture meridians. They are sold in 90 countries presently and have a very small presence in the United States. What will it do for global health? It will reduce medication side-effects, by controlling pain. It will change performance in athletes because they will enjoy improved functions without compromising their health.

WalkMiles Meter

People who fly accumulate frequent flier miles, Shoppers accumulate Loyalty Points etc. I envision a Sports shoe/ Formal Shoe that will have a Meter to record the Miles walked. The technique is simple - convert the foot falls to miles ( simplified math formula) using a small electronic meter embedded on the sole with a display at the bottom. This will help you to monitor your activity level & feel Good about your healthy walking! Companies and Educational Institutions can buy these WalkMiles and reward with cash/ small gifts as a measure of encouragement. WalkMiles - WalkSmiles!

Wellbeingism

What if we were not the only ones responsible for our health? What if our society structures would be preventing us from achieving complete health? In order to live a healthy life, in order to achieve wellbeing, shouldn't we start by looking at creating the "optimal" society? Welcome to the world of Wellbeingism.

Videogame Style HUD for your health and life.

Stress is the enemy, stress weakens, this is a known problem with the human body. The solution? Essentially a mobile phone app that displays a visual stress/environment "Heads Up Display". Using a vidoegame style HUD to help manage/guide/predict Mood, Sleep, Exercise, Food (calories, fat sugar etc) unreturned calls, phase of the moon, Biorhythms, unprocessed Emails, unread tweets, or anything else that can be reasonably represented graphically. It should display an instant simple visual 'Heads Up' showing stress points that can be focused on. By tracking stress inducing things, you feel less stress because it feels "managed" and manageable.

Mirror Neuron System in Kindergarden Dining Hall

Some children have bad eating habits. We designed a digital projector software with a mirror neuron system to show funny cartoon figures in an eating story in kindergarten dining halls. Designing funny eating jokes involved with their figures activates memories in the mirror neuron system and persuades children to eat healthy, joyful food with corresponding funny objects. The system gives them virtual prizes and virtual gifts for their good habits by the cognitive vision measurement of similarity. Furthermore, we can design a mirron neuron system to make all eating happier and more conscious, not just in schools.

Powered By the Masses

Working out for community. My idea is this. You enter a gym where people are getting in better shape and at the same time pumping energy into city's electrical grid. Inside of every exercise machine we have a generator and whenever a person exercises, they give back the energy by spinning the generators. With new neodymium magnets and better generator designs we can achieve a significant energy inflow into the electrical grid. Make the gyms and people compete between each other as to who makes the most energy in a given month, reward accordingly.
