This post is about idea generator apps.

Previously, under the influence to "how to think about the idea" is written to the book 'Masayoshi Son' of Softbank, I was taking out the idea using the word card.

'Masayoshi Son' says in this book, there is a pattern of three "combine", "lateral thinking" and "problem solving" in the invention, it seems to have thought the idea in following method.

1.Write a keyword that you came up with the word card.
2.Pick out three random word card.
3.Consider the idea in a way to "combine", "lateral thinking" and "problem solving" from the three keywords.

I was thinking the idea by arranging the word card on the desk, but it has developed a simple app I think wanna think of ideas on the outside.
