Study Healthy People

Take detailed personal and family histories. Educate and interview parents in depth about what constitutes psychological trauma and take trauma histories. Do developmental attachment histories. Test for multiple intelligences and creativity quotients (CQ). Sequence the healthy genome. Develop tests to assess epigenetic factors and do epigenetic assessments. Come up with one integrated instrument to fully measure and predict health trajectories.

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! :-)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Indoor Community Gardens

Transform one foreclosed or repossessed home per neighborhood into a sustainable, eco-friendly garden that's capable of producing enough healthy fruits and vegetables for 50+ households; hydroponics technology would enable year-round growth. Facilities would be powered by a combination of renewable energy sources (eg, geothermal, thin-film solar, piezoelectric) and designed to leverage passive techniques (eg, rainwater harvesting) to minimize maintenance costs and needs, with neighborhoods providing minimal upkeep. Diets from these gardens could curb childhood obesity and avoid cognitive deficits caused by low-cost foods. (The gardens would also help clean the air.) Image via Creative Commons.

Snot Spots!

Immediate reagent tests for antibiotic resistance in any infection, required to be used on site, at prescription. Ever had a real sinus infection and gone through five rounds of antibiotics to clear it? The common practice is to prescribe the most common (least effective) drug first, and work up in Russian roulette style trial and error. The development of a simple swipe pad that looked for resistance markers would greatly reduce the use of the WRONG drugs, while lowering the spread of disease by treating effectively the First Time. Fewer sick days, fewer broad spectrum exposures, better cures!
