I cannot believe it. I just can’t believe it. And it annoys the heck out of me because there’s nothing I can do to stop it.
Here’s my bitch – once again someone else has brought one of my ideas to life. I am always coming up with ideas and other people are always bringing them to life.
I’m not naive. As a matter of fact, I get mad when Apple sues some third-world company for coming up with technology Apple has only recently released. Apple tends to think that they are the only ones who can come up new, innovative technology. When someone else is found to be working on technology Apple is working on, Apple tells them to stop working on that technology or face the consequences…
So I know that if I have an idea there’s a good chance someone else in the world has had that same idea. It’s possible they could have thought of it before I did, or after I did. It’s also possible they could have actually brought the idea to life already, are working on it now, or will be working on it in the future (so I can bitch about it then). So, I am fully aware that this can happen. It just makes me upset when it does.
Years ago, I thought of a way to make holograms a reality. My idea was to use the air itself as the medium. You would then use some sort of magnetic field or laser system to excite the air or create light particles in the air.
If you follow the link above you will find an article about a hologram system which uses lasers to create plasma out of oxygen or nitrogen molecules in the air or water. It essentially creates points of light in the air. Multiple points let you make shapes. A combination of green, red, and blue lasers allows you to create any colors.
BTW – I know this all sounds stupid. But if I put my ideas out on the Internet, people would steal them. So, I have to wait until someone comes up with one of my ideas to call them out on it.
