Where do we see opportunities for new products?

We have more ideas than time, contacts and detailed overlap in the fields where we see room for innovation and new products. Meet our ideas that have not yet been implemented. Do you have any advice or insider info? Let us know!

VR app for presenting and selling holidays and experiences

Browse holiday destinations virtually and let an algorithm plan your holiday based on your preferences.

State: Open

Idea

An app running in virtual reality glasses that allows easy browsing of accommodation and tourist sites. Possible interfacing with aroma diffusers, fans and similar equipment would allow for additional intensification of the realism of experience.

Purpose

Simplify the design of the itinerary and the choice of holiday location by providing the possibility to check all places of interest virtually first.

Description

SAAS solution in the form of a content platform for wireless management and control of content running in virtual reality glasses. Travel and experience agencies would create and process the content themselves, or use content supplied by providers, intermediaries, administrators and visitors to the presented locations. Switching between places would be instant and easy.

In the context of browsing places, the app would allow the marking of popular locations on the basis of which it would generate a trip plan, including the possibility of including other popular places based on previous selection and their general rating on travel portals.

The app would also be available to end users as a social and booking platform for travellers in VR.

02

Hashed contracts

Easy verifiability of contract immutability

State: Open

Problem description:

In the case of many participatory negotiations, the contract is firstly sent in an email attachment, and then signed in physical form at the office of the contract creator. Before the signing itself, it is necessary to review the entire contract to verify that it is identical to the original contract sent in the email.

Possible solution:

Extension of the contract to include a hash created over its content and a provision that the contract is valid only if the hash matches the content of the contract. The hash would be generated by simply uploading the contract to a web page. It would then only be necessary to check only the hash.

Note:

I assume that several projects using blockchain are solving the problem. In the near future I plan to analyze these projects and their approach to the solution.

03

Ticket / Booking / Licence platform

Easy manageability and elimination of fraud

State: Closed by investment to GET Protocol

Problem description

Organisers of cultural events, accommodation and other services, software companies etc. sell "entrance tickets" (access to the service) directly or through intermediaries. In both cases, making changes (change visitor) is an inconvenient affair often entailing risks and additional costs.

Example:

User A has purchased a ticket for an event that he cannot attend. Through the social network, he finds participant B interested in buying the ticket. Buying participant B is at a significant disadvantage in the negotiation - he must trust that participant A is selling a genuine ticket that does not exist in other replicas.

Solution proposal

A ticket marketplace in which each ticket is tied to an issuer and an owner. Ticket resales take place digitally, in a peer-to-peer manner, on a resale platform. Functionally, only the owner of the ticket changes.

Example:

A mobile application where tickets can be managed, purchased from the issuer (primary market) and traded on the secondary market (buying/selling between users). For easy keeping, the ticket can be easily printed/displayed in the app in the manner of Apple Wallet.

Advantage for all parties:

The described system will allow buyers and sellers to easily trade tickets without the risk of fraud. The issuer should benefit financially from the resales made on the secondary market by a share/fee from each transaction.

Possibility of further expansion:

The system could allow organisers to fundraise and offer investment opportunities to system users. In principle, this would work e.g. by the organiser issuing a business plan to organise an event for which he requires $X while providing Y guarantees. Once the $X is collected in a smart contract from investors within maximum defined time, the smart contract will create tickets and allow the promoter to withdraw the collected funds. When the tickets are sold, the funds received from the sale are pooled back in the smart-contract and investors can withdraw them.

Problems to solve:

  • How to allow free transfer of tickets between accounts (e.g. a group of friends) while preventing the circumvention of resales through the marketplace (= avoiding the resale fee for the issuer) between identities that do not know each other?
  • How to prevent fraudulent behaviour in the investment / fundraising matter?

Technology in the background

It is necessary that the system is not narrowly focused, but allows all sales aspects to be tokenized (ticket, reservation...). Transparency is necessary for global deployment.

Today, assets written on the blockchain are an example of both, especially NFTs (non-fungible tokens). In terms of user simplicity, everything needs to be in a simple to use web/application interface.
