Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.


Ever wished you could be in two places at one time? A Japanese scientist has managed it through making a robot that looks and moves exactly like him.

The Geminoid was created by Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro using a model of his body and hair actually from his head.
When you poke its face, the robot even frowns like a real human, as it has 50 sensors implanted beneath its skin.
The robot also looks like it can breathe because compressed air is pumped around its body!

Dr Ishiguro said it was easy to forget that the android was not real: “Once you are drawn into a conversation, you will forget every difference and feel totally comfortable to speak with it and look it in the eyes.”
