My Dream App Is My Dream officially launched today

My Dream App is a grand experiment to see what happens when you combine the expertise of some of the best talents in the software and tech world with great ideas and feedback from everyone else.

It works like this. For the first two weeks of the event, we'll be collecting ideas for killer apps from hundreds, hopefully thousands of contestants. Then, the My Dream App team will be narrowing these down to 24 great (and developmentally feasible) entries.

I think this is one of the best ideas to come to the Mac Community for a long time.

I submitted 3 ideas myself.

Point2: An App that will allow two cursors on the screen with independent movement.

One cursor could be placed on a photoshop palette or a protools slider while the other cursor would be for other movement and navigation on the screen.

Essentially this would be like having a mouse for your left hand and right hand.

It could also be integrated into 1st person gaming - giving the onscreen character a right and left hand independent of each other.

Dockeys An app for the OS X dock

By clicking on and launching "Dockeys" the dock turns into a visual keyboard (like a kiosk keyboard) this dock can be used for "option key" character visualisation or be set to type "option key characters" more easily.

It could also be used by those who cannot use keyboards.

The app would launch and the dock would alter to look like a very nice and visually appealing keyboard that would also be able to be hidden off screen just like the dock.

LuvX An app designed to take advantage of core animation

An app that allowed one to place a button on the desktop, in email, within documents, even w/ iChat that if pressed (clicked) would give a vivid animation to the recipient (clicker).

As an example: On Valentines Day I send you a heart shaped button. You click on the button & dozens of animated hearts float on the screen & a very neatly animated message flies over the top of all open items on the screen that says "I Love You". Similarly on Halloween, very realistic looking bats would fly around the screen like the opening to Scooby Doo full w/ sound effects & would wish the user a Happy Halloween.

Essentially this is a great new & innovative way to send a card or message to someone.

Make the app module based so that others can add to the appeal and community of the app.
