Large Scale Innovation Projects, helping solve humanity’s biggest challenges.
Concept cars are for the automobile industry; concept homes are for the construction industry and now concept innovations for all industry. While most concept cars are never seen in a production line, concept innovations are created to be realized. Some Concept Innovations are built-to-order, others are part of innovation contests, and others are open to being acquired by enterprises.
Petawatt Geothermal Energy
WHAT: A steam turbine-based energy plant system, where the steam turbine sits at a 20,000-meter depth getting 500°C, the same temperature as a nuclear power plant delivers.
UNIQUE: Because no vertical drill can reach that depth, we bore a “tunnel” at a 50° angle 32km into the ground. We place some of the most powerful steam turbines producing 5 Terra watt/h or approximately one petawatt per year.
TO INNOVATE: Bore head, heat resistant turbines, diagonal cable car 500°C resistant, gravel traps, and more.
ADVANTAGE: Geothermal energy is available 24x7x365, weather, sun, or environment independent.
IMPACT: 200 energy plants worldwide would deliver the total global energy consumption. It could be used on Mars and possibly on the moon too.
POTENTIAL: > $100 Bn
IOtainer Logistic System
WHAT: A unique container system increases freight volume by 20x, cuts cost in half, and saves 2,000% railroad distance. An embedded digital system allows fully automated handling from the initial sender to the end receiver – covering even the last mile.
UNIQUE: Rugged and 99% recyclable rigid plastic boxes from as small as 30x20x5cm to as big as 5x5x5 meters. The new containers are up to 5 x 5x 20 meters and offer 20 times the freight volume as the most enormous containers today.
TO INNOVATE Unique locking system, Unique grabbing system, and Embedded digital system, allowing completely automated loading and unloading, opening and selecting the content for different destinations. Ready for individual home delivery, drone delivery, or pickup.
ADVANTAGE: Lighter, bigger, modular, recyclable container system with matching “sub-containers” inside. Fully automatic handling from any position to any destination.
IMPACT: 20 times capacity saves 2,000% railroad distance. Automatic handling reduces cost and administration by more than 50% and increases delivery speed, estimated by factor 2.
POTENTIAL: > $25 Bn
WHAT: A quantum mechanic-based communication system that allows instant information transactions. Unlike radio waves limited to light speed, quantum entanglement allows a transfer speed that is currently not measurable. The distance between the moon and the earth would be instant – enabling IT centers to build on the moon.
UNIQUE: Leveraging quantum entanglement for communication between two quantum computers.
TO INNOVATE Quantum computer software to create and manage communication.
ADVANTAGE: Instant communication even with planets lightyears away, like Proxima Centauri B. Possibly the only communication mechanism that advanced civilizations in our universe would use.
IMPACT: Out-farm high-performance server farms to the moon, using uninterrupted solar power to power the computers and deliver instant results to the earth.
POTENTIAL: > $10 Bn
WHAT: A structure that helps multiple companies to produce materials or services on the Moon. Materials may mean oxygen or plastics from the moon surface or services like IT services mainly energy intensive data services. This concepts is also about economy of scale.
UNIQUE: a universal production and services operation for multiple businesses including solar energy supply.
TO INNOVATE: Moon operational 3D printers, Excavation machines working under less gravitation, asteroid protection, air-condition, underground operation, space elevator for wired data connections.
ADVANTAGE: Reducing air pollution and Co² exposure. Unobstructed solar energy generation.
IMPACT: The top electricity consumer are computer centers from Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Samsung and so forth. Putting them on the moon and connecting them to earth would reduce energy consumption on earth dramatically. Adding chemical production and others, comes on top.
POTENTIAL: > $100 Bn
All Digital Bank
WHAT: Transformation from conventional e-banking to a technology powerhouse in financial services. No counter, no physical money, no marble tower, no manual processes. A high-performance and superior data management frontend for business and residential accounts. An AI driven financial management operation. The new “financial institute” is a technology company with a vast range of digital financial services.
UNIQUE: From the ground up, newly designed banking operation. Full bank service, including all transactions such as money transfer, loan management, trading, integrated bookkeeping, and many others.
TO INNOVATE: A new API design for other systems and services, new security architecture, reporting and statistic services, and new business models.
ADVANTAGE: Leveraging the existing high-speed transaction systems. Reducing cost of operations by as much as 85% from current cost. Highly profitable, superior competitive advantage, lang lasting leadership.
IMPACT: High performance and a new level of personal and business finance management. Opening for a new market segment of financial services partners.
POTENTIAL: > $50 Bn
WHAT: A new category of financial services provider, Finance Super Market. Providing financial services to end consumer who do not want to deal with fully digital services. FinMart XXL offers all kinds of financial services such as banking, insurance, loans, leasing and more.
UNIQUE: There is no such service available today.
TO INNOVATE: Frontend Software to connect to the new digital full-banks. Business model, services portfolio, regulation models.
ADVANTAGE: Digital native customers can get a much better service at a much lower price. The unexceptional high cost of sales of financial services institutes would be reduced and distributed to FinMart type financial market places.
IMPACT: Financial Services see a more scalable and effort-specific pricing structure. A large number of sales people get back to the job market and make the sale shortage today a bit less dramatic.
POTENTIAL: > $25 Bn
