A product I'd dearly like to see. You could specify which characters should appear in your package of alphabet soup pasta.

Target markets include:

  • Biology classes -- using the letters A, T, G, C.
  • Hackers -- using the hexadecimal digits 0-9 and A-F, or just using zeroes and ones.
  • Corporations -- using the letters in their name.
  • Crypto geeks -- for creating one-time pads and teaching people about frequency analysis

I figure if you could buy individual characters in one-pound packages, you could mix your own. Better yet, how about being able to specify the blend on a web site and have it shipped?
