#1978: OrderBorder

So many things are now being gamified -in the sense of having ongoing performance ratings displayed publically.

Today’s invention applies this concept to anyone with the urge to wear a uniform.

Scouts, soldiers, police officers and royalty would be equipped with uniforms on the outside of which there would be the outlines of all the awards, badges and decorations they could be awarded.

A corporal would thus wear a single stripe attached within the outline of a sergeant’s three.

All personnel in an organisation would have the same complete set of stencilled markings in order to communicate the idea that even the lowliest member can gain all the available rank badges and bravery decorations.

  1. I just read this rather cynical quote:
    ‘Napoleon Bonaparte said, “A soldier will fight long and hard for a bit of colored ribbon.” The modern corollary: a techie will promote your startup if you give him a cool sticker’.
