Internal Mini-Zeppelin Mail

Trans Cubicle Personal Office Bluetooth Blimps

With advances of email and such like we can now communicate with the person in the next cubicle as easily as if they were sitting right next to us. However, technology has until now failed to provide us with a means of removing those ardous small tasks that force us to leave the comfort of our office chairs in order to borrow such items as, for example a stapler. Enter small blimps filled with hydrogen or helium (I forget which is the highly volatile one: don't worry I never build my ideas). These are bluetoothed to you PC and integrated into your email application so that you can now send a real attatchment (internally only of course). When not in use the blimp will self-moor to it's charger above your desk. (Of course weighing each item to be sent and then removing appropriate ballast from the mini-blimp might be tiresome and time consuming but just think of the possibilities for abusing this system for personal vendettas, jokes etc.)

       When not in use you could use them for airship battles above the cube farm.

       Think of the chaos you cold create with a pellet gun or slingshot. Oh the humanity!   

       If you were to use hydrogen I am sure that the fire marshall would object.

       Marvellous. Have a pastry, delivered by mini-blimp.
angel, Jul 31 2003
  

       I think everything should be delivered by blimp.

       What about babies?
DeathNinja, Jul 31 2003
  

       [DeathNinja] you could tug 'em out with one?

       You could avoid ever getting any memos, simply by pointing desk fans in all directions out of your cubicle.

       [DeathNinja] Babies generally *are* delivered by blimps. (runs and hides)

       Air Battle: two hydrogen blimps and a ceiling fan.

       It has to work better than Lotus Notes (+)

       Yes [UB], but not one that would be detectable over the loud monotonous droning of ones fellow workers.
nichpo, Aug 01 2003
  

       Wow [Stygian:link] thanks. Actually looks like this is nearly completely baked. My blimps would be more 'Kiaser Wilhelm' than 'Beach Party' though.

       If it's more Kaiser than Goodyear it'd be a a dirigible.
bristolz, Aug 01 2003
  

       [bliss] - you should have your resumes delivered this way. They'd get noticed, you'd get in the door, and maybe see one.
lurch, Aug 01 2003
  

       A cubicle is like hell, but smaller.
DeathNinja, Aug 01 2003
  

       I like you, [DeathNinja].
k_sra, Aug 02 2003
  

       are there flames and the smell of sulphur.
po, Aug 02 2003
  

       I don't have a cubicle, but this idea makes me wish Idid.

       One of the great blimp ideas. Too bad all of the buns flew away.
