Wii Energy Conversion Printer Friendly Version
If you've ever played Wii Sport, you'd know that a lot of kinetic energy is wasted while playing this game. If energy converting devices can be made into the remote (maybe make the whole thing a bit longer to fit the device in), then the remote can convert the kinetic energy into electrical energy. This can be linked to a dry cell holder where the cells can be charged directly from the remote. And this can also be appliable for other Wii games, though those games must involve a lot of movement. Imagine all these while playing Wii!
Reward: Knowing that there are more and more energy converted from thousands (or millions) of Wii players around the world!

Garage goodies Printer Friendly Version
Now cars are having dvd's n psx's etc. built in the backseat.. I thought maybe some custom built console could be made specifically for in car entertainment.
When you stop at a garage to fill up the car you get the opportunity to download stuff into console, could be a game, the news, a movie or whatever.. maybe have a touch screen menu beside the petrol/gas tank so you could pick what you want and pay for it when you pay for the petrol.. would be nice on long journeys to stop the kids being bored, and when you stop for a break you can catch up on the news.
hello I'm lee.. 28.. with beer and nearly out of rizla+
Reward: quiet kids, chance to catch up on latest events

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?
