Innovative Thinking – Random Association Alexa – Blog 059

Random Association & Innovation


This is a really fun part of the book.  This section should be called “Brain Candy”.  For the next dozen or so page, I have presented random, fun ideas you should find interesting.  So, sit back and scroll down and take a minute or so to appreciate the innovation and how you can create the same or better ideas.


As we have been discussing, many of the best ideas are simply putting two good ideas together in a way it has never been done before.


Innovation  – Alexa With Eyes


The other day while listening to my playlist of music on Alexa I thought, wouldn’t it be cool if you could just use your hand and swipe left and Alexa would simply go to the next tune or giving Alexa a “thumbs up” to raise the volume or a “thumbs down” to
lower it?  I haven’t built it yet, but it would be fun!

I also thought, how cool would it be to put the PS4 “Eyes” on my laptop and simply change slides by swiping left.


“All the really good ideas I ever had came to me while I was milking a cow.”
