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.

biomarkers with patient and expert crowdsourcing

Make free the ability to get a 1000-panel blood test quarterly. Blood testing, DNA, physicals, etc. Sensors/chromatograph/chip reader machines will need the same kind of focus as DNA sequencers. Capture the data and publish in a public website that plots trends with comparisons. Allow individuals to review the data, read professional analysis results and blog their symptoms. Statisticians, scientists and engineers can aggregate and mine the data. Over time, real cause-and-effect will emerge. Continuos improvement in this whole feedback & analysis system, could help attain unknown hieghts of health mastery. So Bill, Melinda, Warren, ...we better hurry up! :-)

Forging the Brain using Electro Stimulation

The brain can be forged with low level analog ElectroStimulation equipment with 10V DC current to stimulate the motor cortex without invasive techniques (from outside) 1. It helps to sub-consciously improve learning, improving motor performance 2. Artificial stimulation of the brain is harmless and micro volts of current is applied to improve motor reflexes The BrainForge unit & small electrodes are attached to a crash helmet operated with a remote / iPhone. This will improve performance by 10-20% and will be great for Pilot training & flight simulation / sharp shooting / Performing a complicated surgery / Motor racing...

Carbon Chemistry for Life

Everyone, particularly the obese, would benefit by reducing carbon from simple sugars, like High Fructose Corn Syrup and table sugar, with Mannoheptulose, the 7-carbon sugar in Avocados, and C3H8O3 glycerol, found in sweet wine and used for making soap and bio-diesel. Specifically, 5% of calories from Mannoheptulose and 35% from Glycerin. Obese people could also use the GI dynamics Endo Barrier to lose weight and increase health. The device is in use in Europe and helps with weight and blood sugar problems. This diet would also reduce protein intake for those over 60 to 45-60 grams of protein per day.

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.

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!

Would you eat off a toilet seat?

As a pre-school art teacher, I know school cleanliness standards and would never ask students to eat off a changing table. When my husband was hospitalized, I found out the standards were not the same in hospitals. Everyday in hospitals and nursing homes, patients do this. The handy bedside hospital tray table is used for food service, prep space for incontinent bedding changes and prep space for wound dressing materials. In this painting, I am trying to spread awareness of this "unmentionable" problem. I hope by doing this we can increase patient safety outcomes in our most compromised patients.

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!

The Recovery Project

The Recovery Project would organize people's personal narratives of recovery so that they can be best learned from by others. By letting patients see what others have done and by creating high-level meta-narratives, patients can see the decision trees that others have used, saving time in creating their own from scratch. Sharing and reading similar narratives provides an affective component to possibilities for personal health -- critical when conditions require changes of habit. And experts and practitioners will be able to contribute their stories of helping patients recover, integrating various medical professions' perspectives, instead of creating a divide.
