Be advised, that there’s a special “Committee of the Whole” meeting over at Stevens Institute this Wednesday, January 28th at 7pm (in the Howe Center, 4th Floor).

Experts from the Stevens Business and Technology Program will discuss “economic opportunities” for the City of Hoboken.

While I think some quite intelligent ideas will certainly be discussed, let’s have some fun with this. Use your imagination!

Technological improvements for Hoboken

  • Install power-generating hydraulics on doors to the traffic summons window. Reduce energy usage by 36%!
  • Develop giant robotic arm that removes double parked cars from street. Fine of $500 to get car released from robot’s grip.
  • Dog Poop-sensing cameras on sidewalks. Collect fines.
  • “Lie-collars” for city officials. Each time they tell a fib, their face gets sprayed with semi-permanent ink (lasts a week).
  • Vomit-powered hybrids. Each St. Patrick’s Day will be enough puke to power city cars for a year!

What ideas do you have?

“Portable Micro Dams” – can be used in a moment’s notice to generate electricity from flood prone areas.[/quote]
Then Hoboken can become energy self-sufficient!

Ah senior design, good times! I bet you those young student are probably smarter than our council, and who knows? Maybe they have some brilliant ideas of their own. Never underestimate a Stevens student.

GO ATTILA!

Did they give any other notice at all? If not for 411 this would have slipped by a lot of people. My guess is, maybe that’s what they want.

Hoboken411, I’m not clear where you made the jump from “Senior Design Team in the Business and Technology Program” to “Experts from the Stevens Business and Technology Program”. Are we talking about a student project, or expert faculty?

Regardless, I don’t think it takes a business pro to figure out ways for Hoboken to improve its financial situation. The problem is that they all require things like following basic management principles, and palms don’t stay greased using those.
