This would be a blog where an image of an object with unknown utility would be displayed and users would submit their suggested uses for the object. And that’s it!

Home page for the "How Would You Use It" blog.

A very rough wireframe for the home page. (Made using iMockups for iPad.)

The uses themselves would be very succinct. In the wireframe below, 30 characters is the suggested maximum. Though it could be more, could be less. For this sort of site, simplicity seems to work well. How Would You Use It would play on this, as well as that addiction factor that Facebook and Hot or Not exploited so perfectly.

The "Add a Use" form for an object.

This is what could display when a visitor wants to "add a use."

Also…

There would need to be a more navigation to allow users to view objects that are highly popular, to view objects that the user has already rated, etc., so that all objects are accessible within one or two clicks. But the goal of this blog is for pure amusement.

Wouldn’t it be interesting to see how people perceive the purposes of objects they are unfamiliar with?

An object of unknown use.

How would you use this?

Oh, by the way, if this idea is already being put in use, please send me the link. Thanks!
