Name Your House Printer Friendly Version
We could use adding more uniqueness and character to our homes and add that to our address. We could set up a real National Paid Directory of house addresses and there names with each name different from any other. We now name stars and boats so, why not our homes?! We could get really creative and it could reflect our families personalities or the house or anything you can imagine from any real or made up word or short sentence ever spoken from time immortal in any language you choose. It could make placing address look ups for any business or home on CD or at another company an easy process; you just need to enter a name of the house and the full address comes up since each is unique world wide or unique to your country.
Reward: Name one after me! That would be...Aaron Steven Burns. (Officially). But, please don't fraud my debit card.

Electronic Receipts for Traditional Purchases Printer Friendly Version
Purchases made in person in stores have a disadvantage for customers in that there is no electronic record of the purchase available for the customer, only a paper receipt. Since receipts are often needed for returns, proof-of-purchase, rebates, etc., there is motivation to mimic internet sales with electronic receipts. If the customer was willing to give their email address to the store clerk, these could be sent by email (along with advertising). If the customer wanted to remain anonymous, but still wanted a receipt, there could be a swip-able card that could record the purchase information (and advertisements).
Reward: Recognition for development of the idea.

"Two angles - two programs" TV screen Printer Friendly Version
I wonder why so many ideas are about inventing the perfect TV...
Anyway, here's another one. ;) You probably know those postcards where you can flip the card and suddenly you see a different image. I've also seem money machines where the screen will turn black when you're standing just a few degrees away from the center of the screen.
Why not combine both, and invent a TV screen that will show two or even three different programs depending on your viewing angle?
Ever noticed that when you go to a pub to watch football, there are only men watching? Solve the problem by showing the shopping channel or the Chippendales on the same screen, just from a diffent angle. Ever had discussions in your family about what program to watch? No big deal! The smaller kids (who are sitting on the floor) can watch Disney, while mom (or dad), who is busy ironing, can see her favorite soap opera on the same screen.
Reward: Such a TV for free.
