Notes

3 We need to set the stage for 300K members (or planets) each having 1 to 50 projects? This is our 5 year business target. The original idea of a google maps like navigation in an Invention Universe is very popular with the kids I have polled. What if the 1st screen has 150 galaxies? You zoom in on a galaxy and you see 200 solar systems. Then you zoom in on a solar system and you see 10 planets. Voila … 300K planets. If we need to expand beyond that, we could add quadrants that have 100 galaxies. Also if a member wants to expand, he/she could add moons to a planet. One for robotics, one for games, one for graphics, one for... Browsing: When you mouse over, you see pop-up window descriptions of the galaxies / solar systems / planets. Maybe there is a BIY solar system with most popular, newest, featured... Searching: What if you could search for a list of planets that have key words that an author identifies when uploading a project? Targeting: What if you could set coordinates to go directly to a quadrant, solar system, planet? When you do this, the rocket goes to hyper-speed and zooms through galaxies, solar systems and then lands on a planet. What if we set up bookmarking for future targeting? Graphics: Graphics may be 80% of the reason visitors are attracted. What if we offer a library of user created graphics for rockets, planets, planet scenes and aliens? Notes

4 The profile/planet page is perhaps the main reason why parents would pay $15/mo for their kids to be members. This page should be like a modern, graphical resume that kids could use in a school application. From a kid's perspective, this page should be like a Facebook page to show off your projects and inspire collaboration. Creating Planets/Aliens/Profiles What if we enable a new member to pick from a library of planet scenes which they can modify or they could choose from a template or compile a planet scene from a menu of planet elements. What if we enable a member to create their own HTML planet scene. See next page for all the functions that should be on a planet scene. Uploading A new planet could be automatically stored in quadrant/galaxy/solar system co-ordinate by: - Country / state / after-school program - Date created - Type of project - Most popular - Featured - Newest I love the way MySpace makes it so easy to go to your page: Maybe you apply to join your planet in a particular solar system. Notes

5 Game Land to kids … We have a Problem! Anti-fun parents are making life miserable... restricting time playing games and socializing on the computer! Why do parents think computers are bad for you? How can computers help you?

6 Your Mission: Convince your parents that you will learn valuable skills while programming your own computer games and projects. You could get scholarships to the schools of your choice. (That will get their attention!) You could make life-long friends from around the world. You could earn fame, fortune and happiness with your new skills.

7 Your Mission: The world needs you to help solve the messes your parents' generation have created. You must convince your parents to give you a reasonable amount of time to learn the computer skills you'll need to be a player in tomorrow's high-tech world.

8 How to be famous, rich & happy You will be exploring the universe in search of treasures, knowledge and games. The Queen of MIT has staked you with a rickety old rocket ship and 100 gold coins. Your goal is to multiply that investment. Each planet you explore has a challenge where you can win (or lose) gold coins.

9 How to be famous, rich & happy 1.Engineers at Rocket Works will give you hot tips. 2.Launch a rocket to explore planets. 3.Go to the Bank to collect your gold coins. 4.Go to the Junk Yard to cash in your gold coins. 5.When you land on a planet, you launch a mini game where you can win or lose gold coins.

27 John School:Cornell MEE, BEE Favorite Courses:- Philosophy of religion - Arc Welding - Digital circuit design - Principles of graphic design Describe a problem you would like to solve. Adults have left some big messes for the next generation to fix, including a mucked up environment, nasty diseases, illogical wars and toilet economics. Entrepreneurs using complex technology will be needed to solve many of these problems. What if we could create a global laboratory to inspire and empower the next generation of builders and problem solvers? Project Experience:- Lunar Excursion Module - SAM-D display controller - Submarine detection system - Telemetry for a Venus fly-by - $500,000 electronic drawing board - Electronic chess terminal - Alarm clock that dumps water on your bed Goals:- Play drums in a blues band. - Design a database driven Web site. - Speak and write Spanish fluently Home
