Ultra-Light Aircraft Printer Friendly Version
I called it the Creative Minds X1 and started designing it using a computer 3D Design Tool.
The original idea was for an ultra light aircraft powered by a very small and relatively cheap engine such as a motorcycle engine or (as many suggested) a big chainsaw engine.
I wanted the wings to be foldable/detachable so that it could fit onto a large trailer. I wanted the bodywork to be made mostly of moulded plastics, this turned out to be an extreamly expensive task. Sheet aluminium is probably a better idea.
Im posting it here simply because it might inspire somebody who has the money, the talent, the will - to go and try it. I believe I had the talent, and the will. I didnt have the money, the space or the contacts.
If you have any questions concerning original measurement ideas etc - please feel free to ask!
Reward: I would like its name to remain as Creative Minds X1 and I want to be recognized as the original designer.

Automatic debit software Printer Friendly Version
If you pay off your credit card, using automatic debits from your bank account, there is usually a specific day when the balance is paid in full. Instead of that system, this software would pay the balance off in increments during the course of the month so that by the due date, the entire balance has been paid. The advantage would be that the software monitors the current cash exchange rate, so that when you could gain more interest by leaving the money in your bank account, it would pay the credit card balance in smaller increments. When interest is down, it would pay in larger increments. The flucuation of exchange rates could be exploited to your advantage (take that George Soros!), so that you're not losing interest on your money when you don't need to.
Reward: I would like to work as controller of currency for the OCC, so that I could actually enforce the regulation of MBNA and Citibank.

Fantasy Movie Studio (like Fantasy Baseball) Printer Friendly Version
Create a "fantasy movie studio" entertainment/subscription site, similar to "fantasy baseball" (a sophisticated prediction game based on the real stats of a live MLB season). Partner with the Internet Movie Database for existing information --rather than collecting your own.
Rather than RBIs and other stats that baseball uses, use stats that apply to the entertainment industry like amount of money each actor brings in per picture, a "diva"/"temperment" scale (for qualitative information that effects quantitative results), etc. to determine how much money a film will bring in for "the team" --i.e., movie studio. Films can be picked from "in production" category in the IMDB. Users could also customize such features as creating their own film studio, negotiating contracts for actors, etc.
With this online entertainment/subscription service you could also build everything on your "team" from the actors to the director to the set designer.
Reward: Free subscription to the service and credit.
