The cookie jar is open for the next day and a half. If you want a cookie, just follow these instructions:

- Make a new comment
- In 10 words or less write what your dream project is

You don't need to ask for a cookie, you just need to put out your idea with 10 words or less.

So... what's your dream project?


UPDATE: The cookie jar is cloooooooosed! Thanks to everyone who posted a comment of their dream projects. It's always fun to dream and dream big.

All of the cookie patches have been given out. I said 10 words and I meant it. I'm a stickler, I know, but I will be giving patches out again in the future 'cuz you're all awesome and it's fun.

Well that is kindof the idea, to have an inexhaustible supply of labor, although you are correct to have an inexhaustible supply of labor that can think on its own could cause some massive problems for mankind. But that is why we have computer programmers.

We will use the houses of our enemies and the dust of the cities we destroy, and or recycled aluminum cans, whichever comes first.

There's an error in your reiteration: 16384 -> 32768, but I am sure it was only a typo, right :-) since you proceeded to the next number without error

All you really need is a decent laser, optical fiber, something you can use as an optical bench with mirrors etc., one or two birefringent parametric downconversion crystals (to make entangled photon pairs), and maybe a couple of Penning traps to hold your single ions. How hard can it be? :-)

Well well, as a pro i think you would have guessed that we should send the russians to live in the desolate parts of austarlia while this sandwhich is underway.

A laser wind speed gage for a home weather station. Low power IR laser would point up thru funnel shaped rain and snow protector, Sensor would measure reflected signal noise. Might be possible to calibrate to local wind speed measured with standard anemometer. Or not.
