Bare Car Printer Friendly Version
Prof. Victor Papanek talked in his book 'Design for the Real World', about how more than a ton of metal is used to move a 150 pound human from place to place.
Many of the National Labs in USA are working on developing self-contained suits for use by the National Security people for use in all kinds of emergencies.
Most of a car is designed to provide a micro-environment to the occupant.
The idea proposed is:
Can a simplified version of the special protection suit be used in conjunction with a skeletal, light weight transporter, which could even have only three wheels and the drive mechanism in an open execution?
Such a transporter may weigh less than a third of the present cars and probably run for quite a while on a tank of gas.
Reward: Less pollution. Saving non-renewable fossil fuels.

Silence the sleep Printer Friendly Version
We all know about caffeine and what it does to sleep. Hence if you want to wake up early you should drink coffee, but u can't do that while u r asleep can u ? But the caffeine in the coffee is capable of fighting the sleep.
So I present u all the concept of the Alarm Pill. Caffeine (or its substitute) should be packed in a pill. This pill should be such that it will melt completely only after say 6 hours such that caffeine will be released in us only after 6 hours (maybe 5 or 4 hours as required by the consumer). After the caffeine is released in us in 15 minutes it will reach our brain and voila we will be wide awake without an alarm.
P.S. Just don’t chew up the pill.

New Release Update Service Printer Friendly Version
Yes, everyone knows that Harry Potter's latest is being released today, but how often have you gone to a book or record store and noticed that something new had been released by your favorite less-well-known author or artist six months ago without you notincing?
It happens to Stig and me all the time: if your tastes are anything other than completely mainstream, you can't count on being informed by advertising, and you might miss a product you'd like to have.
Why not create a database where you can input your favorite artists, and they'll send you an email whenever they release something new? You could customize it to send you a reminder weeks in advance, or the day of the release, and wouldn't miss out.
I'm sure major publishers would appreciate (read: sponsor) this, since more people would buy the product at the release date, and less would buy used or ignore it completely.
Reward: A bi-monthly reminder that Liz Phair isn't dead. Thank you.
