Body Shock Contest

By | July 20, 2010

This sounds pretty cool:

May
the best health idea win.

BodyShock
is a call for ideas to improve global health over the next 3-10 years
by transforming our bodies and lifestyles. NextNow members are invited
to enter today! Read the full press release (with video) here – http://www.iftf.org/node/3514

Are you:

  • a DIY scientist trying to extend healthy human life?
  • a developer who wants to invent a mobile diabetes app?
  • an elder caregiver with ideas to help people age in place?
  • a patient creating an emotional wellness tracker?
  • a citizen with a plan to reduce air pollution in your community?
  1. Send us your visual idea by September 1, 2010. The earlier
    you enter, the more time you have to gather votes for your idea. Enter here.
  2. Vote for your favorite idea. Do you think musical stairs
    will work, or are implantable sensors a better idea? Make your voice
    heard – cast your vote.
  3. We’ll help bring your ideas to life. Up to 5 winners will
    be celebrated at Institute For The Future in Palo Alto, California on October 8, to present their
    ideas and be connected to mentors and resources. One of these ideas
    will also win the $3,000 Roy Amara Prize.

Good luck, and may those who help the most win.

Would like to hear about any ideas that Speculist readers submit. Stephen and I will spend some time discussing our own ideas on tomorrow night’s FastForward radio.
