Priceline was founded in 1997 on the back of a brilliant original idea. Airlines regularly flew only two-thirds full, with millions of seats empty. A million hotel rooms might go unused every night. We thought, what if we harnessed the Internet to drive demand, filling those planes and hotels? And what if customers could make an offer – name their own price – rather than pay the full fare?

The following prototype showcases one of the possible solutions.
