1. better doctor-patient visit visualization/reporting software. I was at the doctor the other day as she was trying to place funny tags on a diagram of my body (which had scarce more detail than a stickfigure) with remarkably imprecise accuracy when I realized that the software doctors use to record visits (for their records and their patients) needs improvement. More accurate diagrams. Solidworks-style rotation of various diagrams, too.
2. A different way to meet people. What if dating sites didn’t set up the initial interaction, but established whatever came next? People meet other people all the time, and maybe it’s just a matter of taking and getting that first date that’s the problem. I’m envisioning an app, or even something more low-tech, like an RFID bracelet that you can exchange with people. That’ll later tell you some more granules about them (like what kind of food they like, or where they’d like to go on a date), and then helps you schedule a date, etc. if you’re so inclined. Maybe it could just be a leadup to an existing service like howaboutwe.com
3. Condensed news content delivery. I was inspired by my boyfriend telling me about Ze Frank’s one-video-a-day discussion of random topics. I think he introduces a whole new kind of content delivery. I don’t want to scour every news site in the morning, but be told what’s important in an efficient way. Maybe this could be through customized podcasts, maybe through an email digest, who knows..
