Creative Combinations

The Random Pairing Machine

Sometimes creative ideas can be sparked by odd juxtapositions of words or concepts. This program randomly chooses one adjective and one noun from a set of over 4000 words. Try to interpret the resulting adjective-noun combination displayed in the boxes below. Does it suggest some new ideas to you? If not, click the "generate another pair" button to get a new pair you might like better. If you find a combination that really grabs you, try to take the next step and develop it into something more: an idea for a story, a poem, a new gadget, etc.
