Jon and I brainstormed a bunch of product ideas over the last few years.  This is one from 2011.

---------- Forwarded message ----------

Subject: Another Idea
To: Jeff Katz 

This is probably already taken:  Elizabeth was asking about a yarmulke she thought she saw when looking for ones for the wedding which has flap or something underneath which allows one to clip the yarmulke on without the clip showing.  She might have accidently come up with a good idea, since I can't find where she saw that, or any indication it already exists. Although, I think she must've seen it somewhere, so I'll take another look...

Although, even assuming this doesn't exist, it has an extremely limited audience.  It's limited (mostly)to male orthodox jews with hair (small amount), who don't wear a yarmulke which doesn't require clips (a large percentage of them), who care whether the clip is showing, and aren't satisfied with hair colored bobby pins.  I'm pretty sure this isn't even worth anymore time checking to see if it already exists, but the one nice thing about it is that it would be rather easy to produce and market.  But I'm not sure we could make any sort of significant profit on it (or even cover patenting costs.)

Also, just to clarify, like I said, I want to focus on the bike stuff for now, but it doesn't mean to not keep the other ideas flowing...

Wireless charge stations from Wi-Charge.  +Jeffrey Greenman  and I looked at this 5+ years ago.

Apple Inc., Google, or any cell phone maker would probably buy this technology to get a leg up on the competition.

The tough part will be building out the network of wireless charge stations though you could probably get enough distribution through 1 major partnership with a company like +Starbucks Coffee .

'Type n Walk' #app lets you see where you are going while typing on your #smartphone. Brilliant but simple idea. http://www.Type-n-Walk.com
How does it work? Type n Walk displays a transparent viewport of what's directly in front of you. This combined with your peripheral vision is just enough visual information to help you avoid obstacles -- like walking face-first into a tree! Despite the name, Type n Walk is useful while you're ...

Brilliant!  @BarRefaeli Sex Tape campaign on @kickstarter by @funnyordie#Punkd #Fakeout http://goo.gl/KdsPUj
Bar Refaeli announces her new Kickstarter campaign to watch and possibly even be in her sex tape, that is if she can get enough backers who might be interested in that sort of thing.

This #BruceLee jogging story will change your life http://goo.gl/2G4Aki  #Inspiration #HumpDay
Bruce had me up to three miles a day, really at a good pace. We'd run the three miles in twenty-one or twenty-two minutes. Just under eight minutes a mile [Note: when running on his own in 1968, Lee would get his time down to six-and-a half minutes per mile]. So this morning he said to me “We're ...

We live in Olney. Took my wife there for our anniversary. We were blown away. The ambiance is fantastic. The outdoor seating is nice as well. The food was fancy, tasty, but affordable. The service was also very friendly and professional. So glad to have found a nice but affordable restaurant in this area. My guess is they will raise the prices once they are more established but until then, this place is a steal!!!

Great Shwarma! Also, the portions are very sizable with many topping/side dish options. Their Chicken special on Fridays is extremely tasty. These guys take pride in serving great food to their customers and it shows.

Don't go on a Saturday night, unless you want old meat. Also, their salad bar has become smaller and smaller each year while their prices have increased.
