StepBack

Monetize footsteps. Take the average cost to insure the public at weight X. Determine cost savings of reducing total per capita weight by X percent. Take 90 % of that and put into a trust. Then break down cost into individual steps and assign monetary value eg. $.00075 per step. Give individuals a smart pedometer that "phones" home. Mail them a check. Walk 25k steps get 7 buck Walk 50k steps get 14 bucks and so forth and so on. Fund through insurance companies, they pay $.90 to save a buck.

Opal Guide to StayingAsSaneAsPossible

As disorder naturally increases with competition for resources and living depends more on adaptability, Opal's Guide to Staying-As-Sane-As-Possible saves precious energy in deciding where-to-go-next. This information process allows individuals, families, communities, nations and cultures to refocus attention more efficiently from sickening fears to healthier "feelgoods" by matching a different scale of natures to a sense of personal pleasure so that greater potential can return. A range of regularly reviewed media outlets would make possible the "owning" of a generic world-view, based on the most accurate information available. Personalized props like totem jewelery, paraphernalia etc. would serve as reminders.

Avoidiabetes Movement - Recognize Risk Early

One in two individuals worldwide is at risk of developing diabetes or metabolic disease during their lifetime and at great socio-economic cost. Research identifies over fifty health conditions as early risk indicators for diabetes. Avoiding diabetes is possible - eight to fourteen years before a possible diagnosis - naturally and without major costly interventions. But patients are on their own. The Avoidiabetes movement aims to develop worldwide satellite systems of specialized Early Diabetes Risk Recognition and Avoidance health professionals. In addition, we are developing a system of public live-in centers teaching meal preparation, food shopping, and Avoidiabetes lifestyle management.

Home Sweet Home - Food replicator concept

There are a million of people hungry right now when you are reading this, so think about: if we could help them without material costs? I believe that will be possible to help more and more people everyday. This is the idea of the Home Sweet Home concept, which scans molecules present in a specific food, reproducing it on your plate at home using elements existing in the air, such as molecules of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. TAKE A LOOK, I BELIEVE THAT IT WILL IMPRESS YOU!

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.

Re-Use & Sharing of Resources Through Person to Person Renting

Rentalic (Rental In Community) is an innovative new concept that helps communities become environmentally and economically sustainable by encouraging re-use and sharing through person to person renting. Imagine the possibilities! All the things we own including tools, electronics, medical equipment, vehicles, toys, parking spaces, and even our skills could be rented to each other! Renting removes the emotional "Feel Bad" factor of borrowing and makes sharing and re-use more practical in our society. Our mission is "To help people save money, make money, and save the environment by encouraging reuse and sharing through person-to-person renting." http://www.rentalic.com/about

Green Clinic

The goal is to rethink of tools and health services under a renewed system of requirements and proximity to environmental health issues. The Green Clinic is a service that answers to a wider definition of health modeled on specific needs of a neighborhood. A service that uses technology, but it can also be seen as a concrete point of contact where motivated individuals and professionals from different sectors (not only the medical one) can work together to make places and lifestyles healthy. Green Clinic rethinks of medical practice through the interdisciplinary activity, where, information, lifestyle and cities are the workplaces.

Unleash Artistic Creativity

Everyone is an Artist! My idea is to give the opportunity for everyone to publish their creations (Painting , sculture, Poetry etc.) and become recognized through a web site for their own creations with incentives based on popularity. Millions of people are doing personal creations, but how many really share and benefit from them? There are hidden treasures around the world. Creation is a powerful means to help the world become better. We are using 1% of our brain capacity, what % of our Artistic creation capacity are we using? Thank You.

[PIP.APSSA] Personalized Informatics Platform (with Agents-Protocols-Sensors-Server Architecture)

The PIP.APSSA project offers the way towards a simpler and more convenient process for delivering the dreams of ubiquitous personalized medicine. The platform conceptualizes a unique modular architecture and overall design that encourages both adoption for business development and access for end-user extensibility. Nearly endless use cases and applications exist for this platform. Two possibilities follow: *A workflow for better datasets and more inclusive, emergent metrics to study the human diseasome and the ontogeny of human-environment interactions. *Implicit clearinghouse for established and upcoming medical technologies/services that helps match patients to treatments and technology transfer firms to consumer/ business bases.

Data Mining for Health

An easy-to-use, fun social application for smartphones that helps people make dietary choices and uses collected data to analyze health-trends. How it works: Enter your personal information, take pictures of what you're eating, and the software will tell you if you will go over your caloric requirements for the day (amongst other things); and for fun your "pics" will be Tweeted or sent to Facebook. Essentially, this is a food journal mixed with other interactive tools. The twist in this, though, is that data will be used to identify health trends. Big people eat cookies? Maybe cookies causes obesity!
