Idea Generator

There are millions of ways to generate ideas to come up with new concepts for your projects. You can use your subconscious to come up with an idea or you can consult the Idea Generator for random associations. This tool is great because it gives you combinations of terms that are usually unrelated, but your mind will still try and connect them. This exercise will create lines of thoughts that can be completely novel.

Add to the three generated words some keywords from your own project and you get an endless list of inspirational sentences. Most of them will be non-sense, but they may still give you a seed for an idea. Of course you can simply use a dictionary for this purpose, but this tool is more convenient.

With Leopard it is pretty easy to do, I think.

though i doubt i'd be able to use it much when it comes up with things like "inexpensive, wooden, sex toy" on my first spin!
followed by...
"comedic, vibrating, event"

how ironic..

was my most logical spin, but Transparent Aquatic Magazine was fun too. :) Made me think of those books that are put together with plastic see-through pages.

My only complaint is that there aren't enough words - I get many repeats.

Sweet find, though.

Actually the Idea Generator started as a widget and then became an online toy. You can download it in widget form from http://insanelygreattees.com/news/ . The word lists are even editable!

Enjoy,
