Hello Pit,

I need your help. As part of a business formulation project at uni I've been asked to come up with a few business ideas.

In this regard I'd like you guys to tell me about daily inconveniences/troubles/issues you encounter that you think need solving. It doesn't need to be big, but if its a technology or service oriented problem that needs solving then I'd love to hear about it. It can even be as something you'd be willing to buy, but cannot find.

I look forward to your responses everyone!

Just google "first world problems" and you'll find plenty of it.

I'd love some sort of satellite that could scratch my ass, with a laser beam perhaps, from space.

Having to lean a few inches to the side and scratch it myself is a real inconvenience.

The fact that I still have to wipe my own butt means technology has failed.

How you've got to stand up in theatres to let people pass.
Traffic lights.
Headphones where the cables don't break.

being stuck in traffic and thinking "I should just fly over these cars."
You should invent a flying car.

Oh and when you open a bag of potato chips and eat half of them and the rest get all weird and gross after a few days which really sucks. They should have a box you can put them in to keep them fress

No. You've failed technology.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

Nothing good could come out of mass produced flying cars.

People can hardly drive the ones that are stuck on the ground.

Having to go to work for my money, total inconvenience.

Only people with flying car licenses would be allowed to use them though.

And they could be like bumper cars so if you crash into someone in the air you just bounce off them. It'd be like living in a jelly city.

Well as an entrepreneur in the making, I demand payment upfront for my contributions!

On a more serious note, locking yourself out (which is quite dumb) but under enough stress is a common understandable debacle.

I also only accept payment through Paypal.

It's just a guy showing off a robotic toilet. It has motion sensors, butt-warming, hands-free wiping, everything.

You should just be a Stonecutter. Then you'd get access to our tunnels. Also roller skates.

The same way that only people with gun licenses are allowed to use guns, right? /sarcasm

People find ways to get around anything, and flying cars would be SO hard to control/regulate.

I've got a bunch of fruit and vegetables. I wish there was some way I could put them all together and just turn them into a nice refreshing drink.

wireless headphones are a better idea

How about a technologically advanced pair of underwear that sounds sirens and flashes lights every time you let one rip?

Not being able to roll things up stairs. Having to actually sort out laundry by color (racism) and put it in the washer, and then wait, and then put it in the dryer, and then wait, and then take it out and fold it. I want to be able to drop it in, and it come out folded on its own.

And I like the jelly city idea. But **** the flying car part, I want jetpacks.

EDIT: Also, I want: Headphones that don't get tangled. Plastic cups that keep you from having to guess which is yours at parties. Capri Sun type containers that are resealable. Coffee grounds that already have cream in them, because **** separate containers. Signing into EVERYTHING with my Google account, including courthouses and airports and everything.

The part where you figure out a way to make people resist the urge to devour it.

Also, +1 on the tangled cables thing. Headphones go in pocket, headphone wires have crazy sex, headphones come out all tangled. Raaage

The make sheets that you throw in that catches the color. No more sorting!
