World 5.0

I can think of no more valid entry than one that re-orients ourselves and our culture to the reality of This Moment. This moment is total, and how we fill it is our prime concern. This is where World 5.0 begins, and this fresh orientation allows for personal and planetary healing as we recognize we are literally "all in this together". Of course, the end of war and the elitist agenda would do wonders for transforming our lifestyles as well. Peace out.

Improving survival rates from cardiac arrests using mobile phones

We have started a global project to empower the people to locate the nearest automated external defibrillators (AEDs) during emergencies. We are approaching 3000 AED locations worldwide,which is only the tip of the iceberg. It only takes one AED to save one life. We have developed phone apps to allow the public to locate the nearest public AEDs. iPhone users can download the free "AED Nearby" app, Android users the free "ShowNearby AED" app. More apps are being developed. Our methods will encourage those who are afraid to do CPR to participate in the chain of survival to save lives.

Pathogen Sensing Refrigerator

Food-borne illness are a significant concern in the U.S. Refrigerators could be equipped with sensors to detect bacterial contamination by the chemicals given off as gases by many of these bacteria. These types of sensors are already in use at the industrial level of food production. The approximate location of the contaminated food in the refrigerator would be determined by triangulation using multiple sensors placed at different locations in the refrigerator. The individual contaminated food would then be identified by passing each of the suspected items in turn directly in front of one of the sensors.

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!

Simple Acts of Healthy Living: The 12@12 Campaign

12@12 is a worksite-based demonstration project born from a crowdsourced idea called “Random Acts of Healthy Living.” Here's the premise: Almost everyone eats lunch and is at their workplace at noon. Our project encourages 12 minutes of activity at 12 o'clock once, twice or five times weekly. The employees choose: walk, stretch, stairclimb or simply breathe (relax). This campaign allows people to be active, feel better and build a community. Employees who’ve been active for 12 minutes at least once a week for 12 weeks, earn 12 minutes extra off for lunch daily…for 12 weeks…and the cycle repeats.

Fertility "Vaccine"

Develop synthetic bacteria designed to live in the reproductive tract that keeps gametes (i.e., ova, sperm) immature. When fertility is desired by both parties, those 18 and older could purchase an over-the-counter pill to restore fertility by temporarily suppressing the synthetic bacteria. Both components--the bacteria and the pill--would be patented, then released into the public domain. Byproducts of such a system would allow "family planning" and, with broad use, significantly reduce the incidence of abortions and teenage pregnancies. (And save women from "the pill" and its detrimental side effects.) Image via Creative Commons.

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.

Quantter: Healthy habits get contagious on Social Networks

Quantter http://www.quantter.com is an open SelfTracking platform to help people exercise regularly & acquire healthy habits. Quantters makes it easy to share healthy activities on social networks (run, drink water, weightwatching…). When People become aware of their friends' activities, they tend to contagiously imitate them, as HMS Dr Nicholas Christakis showed at the TED Conference. Quantter offers an open(!) API for other apps or specialized sites to connect to. Companies, Institutions can sponsor healthy activities of normal people. Sponsorship revenue goes to Non Profits in a feedback loop. It's time to spread healthy habits like positive viruses!

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!
