Idea Overview:
Lightshow is a computer program where you can pick a song and the program automatically adds lighting effects on top of a black background that are customized according to each instrument of the song as well as the song's rhythm. People can make friends with the program, view live light shows, be given the tools to create their own experience light shows for each song, and load/view other user-made light shows.
Who might use it/where it might be used?:
Young people who are aesthetically, audibly, and technically inclined will find Lightshow intriguing! People who go to festivals will find it intriguing. It can be used to entertain large crowds or be a source of personal entertainment! When you combine sight and sound in such a way with a thriving community then many, many people will be interested and entertained.
The Market (B2B, B2C or Both):
Sector the idea belongs to:
Why you think there is a demand for your idea?:
There has been a demand for great, complex visuals and music for as long as the human race has been alive. Combining them into a single program such as this is simply common sense, not to mention the fact that many people consider the music and visuals performed at festivals to be bond-forming and enlightening, an experience which can easily be repeated with Lightshow.
Who would be the ideal customers?:
The ideal customers are new-agey, spiritual, hippy kinds of people, intelligent and aesthetically-inclined kinds of people, open-minded and curious kinds of people, and technical Type D kinds of people (since they're able to create their own light shows). Young people living in developed countries such as America, the UK, Australia, etc.
What ideas do you have to reach these customers?:
It's easy to create computer projections, so why not project a Lightshow concert onto a screen and give a community a free concert with a great ending message? Why not create a YouTube channel or two specifically for advertising Lightshow? Why not create an affiliate program that rewards people for promoting the product and making a sale? Advertising a program like this is easy, and any money spent on advertising is money well spent!
How far have you developed this idea?:
I haven't developed this idea any further than putting my thoughts down in a structured blog post. I will give you the link if you request it via email. To be honest, I don't even know who to approach with an idea like this!
What – if any – feedback have you had for this idea so far?:
I have not received any feedback whether it be positive or negative.
What supporting material – if any - would you like to add to your proposal?:
I have no supporting material of any value to attach.

    Interesting idea. Have you had a look to see who is doing something similar or offering something competitive to this?

    It’s a good idea, but I don’t think it would be easy to make money. Various audio players (RealPlayer, Windows Media Player, WinAmp) have included visualizations, and although they seem to have gone out of fashion in recent years, they’re still available for free. There might be a market for a more sophisticated program, but then you’re competing with established products like https://magicmusicvisuals.com/
