macxism

as i make my way through accelerando, i find myself again admiring manfred macx – a venture altruist.

wondering if any of my own ideas could be of use (and i guarantee i’m too lazy to do anything about them) i offer the first to you world. go forth and create.

i call it – flap nav.

combine:

pigeon brain implants

with :

satellite navigation

and:

the idea that pigeons use roads/rail to navigate

step 2: create a controllable pigeon that flies ahead of your car guided by satnav transmitting pictures about the traffic and if its safe to overtake around blind corners etc.

step 3: profit.
