Tailgating oasis Printer Friendly Version
Here in the US before football (not soccer) games, people "tailgate". It's basically barbecuing and drinking in the parking lot of the stadium. People generally bring all of their gear with them. My idea would be to design tailgating oases, where this activity would be encouraged. I imagine an area approximately 30 feet by 40 feet with a couple of trees/landscaping a barbecue grill, tap water, a picnic bench, a coin operated electrical outlet (for music) for each tailgating oasis. These would be located in a pattern to break up the parking lot so that it would be more human-scaled and attractive.
Reward: I'd like a stadium with the tailgating oases to be renamed Bluecube Stadium.

Clog Resistant Drain Printer Friendly Version
Street drains, like those in your kitchen sink, are designed to let water and small amounts of solid matter pass through. Beyond that, they will clog. Their design demand it.
How about street drains with gradual "convex" rises instead of straight bars. They would be strongly built to withstand cars and trucks. Leaves, paper, and other debris would shed from the top of the drain and sucked to the lowest open areas. Water, blocked by the forming debris at the base would be forced to seek a "higher" level toward the top of the drain and through.
Yes, this drain would also eventually clog, but not with moderate amounts of debris.
Reward: name recognition

Automated Roof Compartment Storage Printer Friendly Version
To incorporate a roof storage in car design. This storage can be made available by a push of a button. It will utilize some series of motors (similar to sunroof motor) that will move the roof and provide some space between the outer roof and inner roof part for the storage compartment. The final shape will still maintain the vehicle aerodynamic shape. When not in use, the roof shall be lowered to the original shape in order to prevent unnecessary extra fuel consumption due to wind resistance created by the vehicle. This type of storage compartment is suitable for 7-seater MPV/SUV with a very limited cargo capacity.
Reward: Some token of appreciation commensurate to the application of the idea
