Want to play a Collaboration Game? Answered

Oh my... Coffee beans!

(Sorry - had to create a new thread, would not let me edit)

Challenge: Oh my! I lost my precious coffee beans! I need to travel around the world searching for them. Will you help me stay awake for that? Collaborate and innovate together - find a new way to filter coffee! Do not use anything expensive and try not to create too much waste ;) Let's go!

.

.

.

How does this game work:

1) First collect ideas for a coffee filter here under this thread until Sunday 24th midnight PST - write what you think would work freely!

2) Discuss the ideas here, while they are being collected.

3) Select one idea and form teams - prototype together, form an Instructable, make it Collaborative. Or alternatively, just add in your existing Instructable and make it Collaborative. Innovate together! A very rough prototype that shows the principle is sufficient. The time limit for this step is to be announced - not more than several days.

4) Collect the 'ibles here under this thread (or I could make a collection of 'ibles if possible)

5) Let's vote and see which new coffee filter is the best!

I will always be around here - you could ask me anything and give feedback, too :)

I'm a bit late. But I was thinking what about a mug like an hour glass? Put coffee in between, put water to the top and wait for hot water dip the other side. when it is on your desktop, when you watch it, it'll have a soothing effect on you:) even before you drink it.

i think the key point here is to find something among our 'wastes' that we can use as a filter. maybe a t-shirt which we don't wear anymore could be used to have more intense coffee taste.
