As a coordinator for a think tank which happens to operate online, I've conditioned my brain to come up with at least 2-original thoughts per day. Okay so, I'd like to give you one of those innovative ideas I had today. This one is a potential new business model, which is not completely feasible right now, but will be very shortly so if anyone wants to develop the prototype, they need to start right now. Now then, let me explain this idea, I'd like to throw out to the public and onto the Internet for all to consider.
Some background new battery tech which allows fast-charging, as in 3-5 minutes is becoming very common for smart-phones, and other electronic devices. Soon, all of these devices will have fast-charging abilities. Okay so, that means when people run out of juice they will be able to get a fast-charge simply by finding an AC outlet. But what if you are a busy consumer participating in the "Shop Until You Drop" motif? You are out and about shopping and you run out of juice.
You need a solid charge for your GPS, to surf for similar bargains, and price comparisons right? Now why you are SOL, well, not if you use this new invention - it's a kiosk charging station which costs nothing to use, but while you are charging your device the station has a display and videos to watch - advertising and marketing. You watch the advertising for 3-5 minutes while you are charging your smart-phone. Each kiosk has all the popular plug types, so you just find the one which matches your phone and plug in.
All you need to do is stand there for your fast charge. The owner of the kiosk sells advertising and co-marketing programs, and splits the difference with the store, retail establishment, bus station, airport, coffee shop, or government agency, simple really and quite profitable as well. It will also save consumers who will be able to charge up just about anywhere, anytime they run out of juice. It also means that we save on REEs or rare earth elements, can continue to make smaller batteries, and thus, lighter-weight electronics - meaning when they are done they won't fill up the landfills as much.
Each mobile phone user can get an App to show them where all the kiosks are so that they can find them using their in-phone GPS as a location finder, or maybe the App will alert them at 10-15% left on the battery all of the nearby free-charging stations. Okay, so that was one of my thoughts of the day, maybe a new business start-up for you? Please consider all this.
