Google - Project 10^100 - Selected Project Idea : Virtual World

This project is selected as final one!

Idea: Enhance science and engineering education
Project funded: FIRST is a non-profit organization that promotes science and math education around the world through team competition. Its mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders by giving them real world experience working with professional engineers and scientists. We are providing $3 million to develop and jump start new student-driven robotics team fundraising programs that will empower more student teams to participate in FIRST.

Thank you all for voting my idea and other best ideas!!

Thank you all who voted for the best idea you liked.
Let's wait for announcement for the final project to be implemented!

Thank you once again!! :)

Thousands of people from more than 170 countries submitted more than 150,000 (or around 10^5.2) ideas!

16 "big ideas," each inspired by numerous individual submissions are selected. Which ones should Google make happen? You tell now. Your vote for one of these ideas will help our advisory board choose up to 5 projects to fund, to implementing them.

Virtual World is one among selected.

So please vote for it.

Name of the idea : Virtual World

What one sentence best describes your idea

Virtual World-Software for science experiments- can be used by anyone to do experiments as objects in that software will behave like real world.
Describe your idea in more depth.
What is:
Virtual world, a software tool, has all physical and behavior property of real world like gravity, pressure, heat, forces and so on. So if a ball is dropped, it will fall down in the same speed as that of real world ball. Any experiment can be done with any object and parameter.
All basic particles like electron, proton and so on should be defined with their physical and behavior property. All scientific laws should be defined. So these particles will behave as like in real world. As these basic particles are building blocks, all objects will behave as per law.
1) Parameter can be changed. In a ball dropping experiment, if we change the surface gravity to 1.62 m / s2, it will behave like a ball dropped in moon.
2) Measurement at any point of the experiment can be measured. Experiment can be repeated with slow motion, so observation can be made easy. Objects involved can be transferred, so internal behaviors of the other objects can be easily measured.
3) Any full experiment done by a user can be saved as project and can be used later. These experiments models can be easily upload able to website, so that anyone can download and use those experiment models and use them.
4) Experimenting with any harmful elements will be easy.
Animated characters in video games are behaving according to user interface. So building an application, virtual world, is not impossible.
Virtual cannot replace real lab, because all the laws are being defined by human only. So new discoveries are not possible. But it will lead to real discoveries.
Whenever new discoveries are found, that laws should be updated in this tool.
Virtual World software is like ATM machine while Real Lab is Bank.
What problem or issue does your idea address?
All physic and chemical laws should be consolidated. And these laws should be translated into machine language, here we have real challenge. Behaviors of objects should be machine made.
As all laws on all objects involved should be considered by computer during experiment, performance will degrade. To avoid this according to input parameters and laws defined, machine should create a snap shot and deliver that to visual without a missing of millisecond. But user may have to wait till the snap shot is getting ready.
When experiments with big building blocks are done, consideration up to atom level should be eliminated.
If your idea were to become a reality, who would benefit the most and how?
Everyone wants to do science experiments. To do scientific experiment we should be a student or scientist. We have so many brightest minds. But few of them get chance and sponsors to do experiments. So if we build a software, anyone can do experiment. We will get more discoveries. Still we don’t get unified theory.
Think about African and Southeast Asian countries. Do they have enough labs? How many brightest minds are we loosing?
Think about school students. Can we allow them to work with high energy particle, if they want?
This idea will help scientists also. Observing the experiments, by changing values that cannot be changed in real world, is possible. In real world they are doing calculations to fine conclusion on this kind of scenarios.
What are the initial steps required to get this idea off the ground?
Consolidation of all physics and chemistry laws.
Describe the optimal outcome should your idea be selected and successfully implemented. How would you measure it?
It will be a revolution in scientific world.
When electricity is discovered, no one knows the use of it. But can we image a world without electricity now.
This tool will lead world minds to discover more.
Getting data is not easy, few decades before. But now anyone can get any data he wants. Like that anyone find scientific secret without any barrier.

Hello, and congratulations!

They chose my idea as well: "Making educational material available online".

I was wondering if you received a notification from Google. I have not as of yet.

Could you please let me know? Thanks.

Kurt Liska

And again, congrats. It feels good doesn't it?
