    There were a few researchers who used ML to train a blow job machine. You can try something similar for anal sex.

    An app that allows punching or stabbing people in the face over the Internet. Research on this has been ongoing for over a decade but still no progress.

    Here are a few examples of the demand for this product:

    “Craigslist locker”

    Like a large vending machine. Seller drops off item in a locker. Buyer picking it up with payment. Video surveillance for safety.

      No need for ML for this, you can make do with some clever usage of FFTs and DFAs.

    Not long ago me and my friends got a 500k investment deal for a gaming tool prototype - but my friends bailed because the wife was pregnant and the other ones girl had just broken up...

      Huh. Sounds like one of the founders was freed up to work extra hard.....
      Nov 24, 2018
    • New / EngTY!
      I guess they both needed security!

      The investors didn’t want to proceed with only one person. It’s not a good sign when two founders jump ship when an investment knocks on the door :)

    I had an idea awhile back to create a crwodsourced flash mob advertising platform. It would allow an advertiser to dispatch a group of people with signs to a location. Imagine a group of 100 people marching through a street with advertising banners... It would be pretty effective way to do local ads. DM me if you are interested

      Isn’t there laws against organizing large groups to march the streets? I believe you would need legal permission for each group.

      But I don’t know US law that well.

    If you are short on ideas, dont start a company. Your lack of innovation and competitive advantage is a quick way to failure.
