Musical Gloves Printer Friendly Version
This idea is about gloves that have delicate sensors attached and that will translate the movements of your fingers and hands into music.
A lot of people actually tap along with their fingers when they hear music - now they can actually play music the same way. The synthesizer could emulate all kinds of instruments, but the most obvious use would be percussion: Ten fingers representing ten drums and snares, with the speed and extension of the fingers representing different ways to hit them.
As a special, you could also use the gloves in conductor mode, where you can add you personal touch to an already pre-arranged piece of music: This could either be used to learn the art of conducting, or simply for fun.
Reward: A pair of musical gloves.

Playable Jewel Case for CDs, Movies, etc. Printer Friendly Version
Play your mobile media directly from the case it comes in. Store bought/store played (downloaded). Sample the content. Never scratched or ruined again. Waterproofing would be a benefit in this case.

Apple sells a product called the "Airport Express". It is a wireless networking node. You can plug your computer into it to join the network OR you can plug in a pair of speakers - this is called "Air tunes". iTunes allows you to stream music to multiple Airport Express nodes.
My idea is to create a boom-box that has an Airport Express built into it.
Right now you have to take your speakers or boom-box and your Airport Express to your listening spot. You plug the Airport Express into a wall outlet, then plug your Airport Express into your boom-box. If your boom-box needs to use A/C power, you have to plug that into the wall, too.
By merging these two pieces of equipment, you have a single box that can go anywhere in your house and you just plug it in. iTunes will find it and send music to it.
If you have an iPod Touch or iPhone with the Remote application you can control iTunes remotely as well.
There are a number of devices you can plunk an iPod into and have speakers. This is different and, I think, pretty simple to build for someone familiar with electronics. I don't think you'd even need to disassemble the Airport Express.
