Sterile Cover for a Grocery Carriage Printer Friendly Version
When my son was born I became this huge germo-phobe. It slowy wore off but something did come to mind. As my son grew older, we would go to the grocery store and I would see all the moms placing a huge blanket into the carriage to protect the baby. I tried that and realized that it didn't stop my son from biting and putting his mouth on the handle you use to push the carriage. Yes, they now have sterile wipes when you walk into the store but most people don't know that you have to use them a certain way in order to kill the germs.
My invention is a plastic covering that will fit on any grocery cart, very similiar to the slapstick bracelet made in the 80s. It can fit right in your purse, because it will shrink down to the size of an umbrella and you just take it out, pull it apart and slap it onto your grocery cart handle. They can come in different colors and characters, and when your child bites down you know it is clean. You can take it home and clean it yourself. I love this idea!

Home tresspasser photographer Printer Friendly Version
Battery powered, solar recharged, laser diode creating a barrier around common entryways into your house / doors / windows or even to protect the immediate area around your home (yard). The purpose is that if the laser barrier is broken by a trespasser, photos will be taken of the area where the laser was broken (say five pictures with one second delay) for each laser break. Infrared lasers will allow it to be invisible to the naked eye. The device should automatically delete pictures that are older than a variable amount of days. The days should be determined by the owner during the setup.
Basically if your yard was protected, you would have a laser crossing your yard near your house. The camera is digital and mounted on the house facing the laser barrier and is equipped with a flash. Since it is digital, it will save pictures on a standard flash ram or memory stick (whatever). The flash RAM should not be located with the camera but rather it should be in some other central and safe location. The flash is intended to notify the trespasser that their picture has been taken and to possibly alert neighbors and you and your family of possible danger. Cameras can be fixed to the inside of windows to protect from the elements and allow easy battery change out (like a fire detector).
The purpose is to both scare away trespassers and to identify them for the police. I write this in response to the overwhelming danger to our children from sexual predators. The lasers on the windows could also sound an alarm. This product should be a stand alone set that ANYONE could buy at Wal-Mart or similar discount store.
It may also identify the dog that poops in the yard in the middle of the night.
Reward: I would be rewarded if it was made and people were safer.

A Seperate Card To Store Credit/Debit Purchases On Printer Friendly Version
Have you ever forgotten to save a receipt from a card purchase and then you can't balance your check book? Rather than having online banking you could simplify this part of the process by having one card instead of ten to twenty web sites for each card, that can be swiped through right after your purchase card (Visa/Master Card) that would record all your amounts of your purchases and what they were (all the information). Then you swipe it at home on a home version of the store's computer and it all comes up with all the info for every card.
The small card swipping equipment could Plug and Play into simple software for reading and permanent storage on your home PC or Mac. Plus, now Tax laws make us save receipts for end of year taxes and we probably always will have to save them but, if we used this card and software then we could submit all the receipts all at once instead of 10 to twenty hours of paid work or a serious problem doing it yourself. An easy way to balance your check book weather it is online banking (the software could be compatible) or the paper kind and no hassle hanging onto to hundreds of pieces of paper in shoe boxes collecting all year long.
Reward: The look on my face when I see it being used!
