This is an excellent idea. Except by putting it into silicon, you end up eliminating the most important "management" feature of PowerPoint. It's a pretty hard requirement that the manager commissioning the PowerPoint, be able to insist on major graphic or structural changes up to approximately 17ms prior to delivery of the presentation.
It's got to be a fast FPGA rather than hard silicon.
Automated medication dispensary for individuals.
In the near not too distant present. Medication will be distributed through form fitting PEZ Pill dispensers. These pill dispenser would then be inserted like printing ink in printers onto a carousel.
The pills would be automatically dispensed and of course have alarms and sirens and security and be Heppa compliant LOL. And as needed pills would be available PRNNN
Then the next genration will involve edible cookies that can accept these pills and incorporate them into cookies that do not require a water medium to prepare.
This product concept is available free to those that have a desire to make our lives more comfortable. Unbelievable 1 out of 6 workers in my state is involved in the medical field. They should learn some lessons from our past genrations of farmers.
How about a tablet that uses an ordinary LCD instead of a touchscreen? To support user input, you just plug it into the keyboard base unit, which conveniently also has USB ports so you can plug in a real mouse, a printer or other peripherals.
And for the ultimate in portability and user-friendliness, the tablet docking port on the keyboard base unit would be hinged, so you could fold down the tablet and have it latch closed over the keyboard. Then you could carry the whole apparatus as a single unit :)
There was an April 1st issue of a magazine back in the 80's that had an FED, (Fire Emitting Diode).
This clever device would emit a flame when turned on and extinquish the flame when turned off.
The article stated that the device was targeted for gas water heaters and furnaces. Perhaps advanced versions of the FED could be used in place of spark plugs in internal combustion engines, eliminating the need for high voltage circuitry to create a spark.
electronic cups with lcd displays to indicate the drink is safe to consume, electronic caps that will inform us the pollution in the atmosphere to switch our breathing in to oxygen cylinders ,the cap to inform us about UV radition so that we wear a protective clothing, on top of all this to measure the cosmic radiation and tell us whether it is good mood creation or viceversa!
