A location based social game idea: The Flock

An idea for a location based game

It is funny when an idea hits my mind and occupy it for sometime. Usually it gets me all worked up, and most of the time it turns out not to be that original or feasible to implement. With time, I learnt to kick ideas out of my head, but I will never stop having good feelings about them, and if I won’t have the time or energy to implement them, I still can share them with other people who may.

Well, today I attended the Jordan Gaming Summit at the dead sea. I attended as a representative of my new job which is a social media specialist at Public Action Project. It is a USAID project that aims to help people in Jordan preserve and conserve our limited resources of water, energy along with protecting our environment by focusing on finding better ways to manage our solid waste. We basically give grants to local NGO’s who are willing to implement projects tackling these issues. Along with our new batch of requests for proposal we have in mind gaming as a good and fun tool to reaching a wide audience in the country.

Ideas: Colored Kenafeh, Panty hose 7atta, Buttoned shoes

Some weird ideas have been crossing my mind lately that I am not sure how much potential they carry or how possible it is to implement them. I wanted to write them down in my idea book, but it seems that sometimes I find it easier to take it out on my blog rather than searching for a pen, look for the idea book next to my bed, and put them there!

Sharing those ideas on my blog may also be a good opportunity to discuss them and get different opinions about them. They may be silly ones, but they may have some promise if someone implement them in the right way. Feel free to do so, but don’t forget your idea source 😛

Colored Kenafeh

Kenafeh has been at the top of the arabian sweets cuisine for hundreds of years now. Nabulsi people are the most famous in making a Kenafeh. Kenafeh for those who doesn’t know is based on two layers, white cheese at the bottom and vermicelli at the top. We have hundreds of Arabian sweets shops that serve kenafeh, and all of them serve the same orange-brownish vermicelli kenafeh! Not a single one tried to add some flavors to the vermicelli with a different colors that would make it more appealing to different tastes and different occaisions.

Here are some options we can have:
1. White Kenafeh are perfect for wedding ceremonies – Mint flavour
2. Black Kenafeh are perfect for elegant events – Soos flavour
3. Pink Kenafeh are cool for children – Strawberry flavour

You can go creative here, write down more suggestions in your comment.

Panty hose 7atta like pattern

The traditional 7atta has became a popular scarf around the world. Someone creative enough came up and decided to make different colors of the 7atta that we, for many years, have only knew the red and white versions of it!

Building on the success of that pattern, and seeing the beauty of it around people’s necks, it might be a good idea to come up with different options for people to wear the same design pattern around their body parts.

I can imagine it very pretty as a panty hose under women skirts, no? It can be the next fashion craze!

Buttoned shoes

We have always had shoes with laces, sometimes shoes with a zipper, or even with something that stick, but never tied our shoes with a button!

Why? Why does a button work better on a shirt than a shoe? I can imagine it looks nice on a shoe with opening unlimited design options! Someone can make it work, no?

What do you think guys? I want a percentage!
