First Ideas

Our idea started with the idea of crowd wisdom.

Crowd wisdom comes from this fact: if someone asks one person how much a given cow weighs, it's a shot in the dark, but if someone asks one thousand people how much the same cow weighs, the average of those votes will give you the exact weight of the cow.

Freaky, isn't it.

So we wanted to put a stand in the middle of the city, where a person could "shout" their question and have people answer, and the person could go away that the highest response (or the average of those responses) gives them a good idea of what to purchase or where to go for vacation, for example.
