Block PC Printer Friendly Version
This concept is pretty good, but I'm not great at expressing my ideas, so be patient with me.
Picture a PC that's simply a cube. It will perhaps be worth $500-$700 and it will have the most basic functions as a PC, just enough RAM and graphic capacity to enable smooth web browsing functionality. Why is it so expensive then? It's going to be super adaptable. Hear me out.
On all four sides and on top it will have some sort of connection mechanism (it could be a cartridge slot or an invisible magnetic interface). Now, companies can manufacture modules (for aesthetics, it can be a rectangular prism the same width and length of the cube) which interact with these interfaces. The modules can have extra memory, more RAM, a graphics card, a sound card, a DVD reader, various software, etc. and all these modules have their own price range. you simply buy these modules and attach them to your block PC to upgrade it. You can have up to 6 attachments which function TOGETHER. That being said, it is also possible to sell extension units to enable you to theoretically have infinite attachments if you needed it, therefore this block PC can be anything from a cheap basic computer to a supercomputer.
For example, you buy the block PC first, after a while you want to play a game that was just released. You go to a store which will sell you a 'gaming module' - which includes the necessary RAM, Graphics card and other hardware to enable you to play top end games - for like $500-1000. You buy it and place it on top of your block PC and it magnetically seals (you could make a button that releases it) then it reprograms itself to use the new hardware and it turns into a gaming PC. If you need more power you can buy another gaming module, instead of needing to update your old module, you use both modules and you get twice the ram, etc.
Furthermore, because the modules don't need too much hardware (because the block PC will have the motherboard, power supply etc.), you can trade and borrow it like a video game.
The best part is, maybe in the future, the modules and the box PC can also interact with other devices like phones and TVs, so you can use specific software on other devices or hardware to boost them.
I am no tech wiz, but I'm pretty sure today's technology is sufficient to create this. This has so much potential, that even I can't fully visualize it. Hopefully this idea helps you out. Good Luck!
Reward: All I did was seed the idea, you deserve the credit for making it real. However, if possible I want some credit for inspiring you to create the device. If not public credit, could I have one of the first ever block PCs signed by you and maybe the other people involved in the creation of the product so I can brag about it to friends and family?

Instant charging Printer Friendly Version
The idea is to charge a mobile phone using body temperature. First of all a watch which runs with body temperature without battery. The watch will consume the body temperature and it will start working. Then we can connect the watch to mobile through USB or Bluetooth and we can charge the mobile with body temperature. It means taking heat energy and converting into electrical energy, which is indeed possible.
So that we can save a lot of electricity.

ISHARE Printer Friendly Version
One of the biggest subjects when it comes to phone use is social media. People are constantly connecting and communicating with their friends and fellows. This is why an invention like iSHARE would be helpful.
iSHARE is an application on your phone that has your basic data: name, phone number, social media username, or any other information you would feel comfortable with sharing to people you meet. When you come in contact with someone you would like to share this information with, you simply touch your phones. The GPS in the app senses when in close contact with another phone that has iSHARE, and automatically transfers your contact info.
This would be a faster and more convenient way to share your information then to manually type in their phone number or username. iSHARE would help to better connect the people in our community and prompt more social interaction.
Reward: A free download would do!
