Amazon Echo Voice Messages

Wouldn't it be great if you could use your Amazon Echo to leave voice messages?


As I mentioned in a previous idea, I think anything with a microphone, speaker, and Internet access would be a perfect replacement for an intercom or even a landline phone that can not only communicate between Echoes in different rooms, but any Echo (or phone line) in the world.

That said, even without direct calling, the Echo is also perfect for creating voice messages to yourself... your family... or anyone with an Echo for that matter.



Filling under sink soap dispensers is a real pain in the ass.


It's great having a soap dispenser under your sink, but it's completely frustrating trying to fill the darn thing without it overflowing all over the place. I have two ideas to fix this problem.

First, the easiest solution is to have a pre-measured bottle that has just the right amount of soap, so instead of randomly pouring soap from a giant bottle, you could pour it from the smaller bottle and know for sure that it's not too much.

The second method is a simple valve that you can insert into the fill hole, that automatically shuts when its full. This is a bit like the valves inside gas pumps that prevent the pump from overfilling your car's gas tank.

Power Adapters Should Always Be Labeled

Don't you hate it when you unplug a bunch of gadgets, but you can't figure out which power adapter is which?


If you're like most people, you have a bunch of power adapters connected to gadgets all around your house. My desk has at about 10 of them right now. The trouble is, they all look the same, so if I unplugged some of them, there's a good chance I would get them mixed up when I tried to put everything together.

Obviously this comes down to cost. Manufacturers are lazy and cheap, so they cut corners every chance they get, but they need to make sure every device they ship comes with a power adapter that's clearly labeled so you know which device they came with.

Heated Butter Sprayer

LARGE-364

Admit it. If you had a heated butter sprayer, you'd put butter on everything.


Butter may be "Buttery Soft", but just think of how great it would be if you could just spray it on everything you eat.

I feel a bit like Forrest Gump's friend Bubba, because I could probably list thousands of ways I'd like to use butter that soft. I'd spray some on my steak just be fore eating it. I'd spray waffles, pancakes, toast, grilled cheese sandwiches, and just about every veggie, especially corn, to name a few.

Years ago, a bunch of margarine companies came out with squeezable and eventually sprayable versions, but they weren't just unhealthful, they didn't taste anywhere as good as the real thing.

I think this idea is quite doable. Ideally it would be great if somebody made a spr... [More]

Our gadgets have come a long way in the past few decades, but our remote controls are stuck in the 90s.


Most of us have so many remote controls, it makes your head spin. The one thing in common is that none of them use Bluetooth.

Take one of those remotes and look at it. Really look at it. How on earth did we advance as a society, yet we still have Stanford Engineers designing remote controls that have 25 year old technology?

If you are reading this in the future, go ahead and laugh at us.


Even if you look at state-of-the-art remote controls, from the top-of-the-line Sony, LG or Samsung TVs, they are chock full of buttons that you can't even read... yet the only ones that get heavy use are simply channel up, channel down, power and volume. What's worse, is they... [More]

The Internet Of Things is Coming... are you ready?


Another big revolution in technology is just taking shape. To say this is the next BIG thing is an understatement. Today's technology is just building blocks for things to come. It's that BIG.

What is the "Internet of Things"?


Take a dozen ordinary objects in your room, then imagine what they would be like if they were somehow connected to the Internet. That's the Internet of Things.

Why the heck should all my stuff be on the Interwebs?


Good question. My answer... WHY NOT?

The longer answer... because it takes good things, and makes them great.

Here's a quick history. Some of you may be familiar with the way devices currently connect to the Internet, using an "IP Address". When... [More]
