Permanently Infused Scented Plastics Printer Friendly Version
Have you ever brought home a new DVD, CD, or plastic product and noticed just how strong the smell was? Pretty strong right? Well, plastics can hold scents for about 2000 years and that's 2000 years longer than all those new Glade Plug-Ins and scented oils and candles that currently mask odors or provide a nice spring fresh scent to any room for us. The products of today only last a week or month and then you need to go out and buy new ones or buy refills.
What if we infuse a strong but nice fragrance into plastic discs or some other form and apply indirect heat from an outlet or battery?
We don't even necessarily need to apply a heat source to scented plastics in order to have a strong odor from them. Then we have a scent that will produce the same results as today's smells but, will last for years. A new concept but a plausable solution to our smelly problems. We could make any plastic object or product like scented cat litter boxes to outdoor or indoor furniture. Anything plastic ever made could hold a strong and pleasent scent anywhere we want it, in any product made.
Reward: Any product with a good smell from this idea on plastics.

Rear-facing Baby Car Seat that is Better for Baby's Back Printer Friendly Version
Traveling with a sleeping baby on mass transportation systems can be a challenge. Typically, when a baby is sleeping in its buggy and the parent needs to get into the car, they try not to wake the baby up. Instead, they simply detach the car seat from the buggy frame, put it into the car, and drive off.
When they get home, most parents ether attempt to move the baby from the car seat into the cot and inadvertantly wake him up in the process. Or, they may leave the baby in the car seat.
This is great, however many parenting websites, books, experts etc. warn parents not to let the little ones sleep in the car seat for too long as the inclined position is bad for a baby's spinal cord/back bone development. They recommend that babies should lay flat whenever possible. So, why not invent a car seat that, when it is not in the car, can be made to recline to a flat position?
That way, when you get home with your sleeping baby in the car seat (let's face it, what parent has not gone out purposefully to get the baby to sleep in the car, at least once!), you can carry the baby into his/her room, place the car seat in the cot, and recline the back section so that it is fully flat. This allows the baby to remain peacefully asleep in a position that will not damage the baby's spinal cord development.
Of course, you would have to find a way to prevent the car seat from reclining when it is in the car. That would be dangerous!
Reward: Just invent it and I'll be a very happy mummy. And so will many others around the world I'm sure!

LED based TV Printer Friendly Version
Well... there's CRT monitors, LCD's, now Plasma. I researched on how Plasma screens work, and it says there that each pixel is made of 3 subpixels, with each having the primary colours. Each subpixel is like a small neon light. It has this really small tube filled with neon or xenon, and one side, the glass tube is coated with colourful phosphour that emits visible light when the UV light from the neon gas hits it. Anyways... well i thought that instead of having these thousands of tubes in a huge array on the screen, to modify the LED. Since the LED is really that a small piece of silicon, and what makes it so bulky is the plastic cover that directs teh light. So since the LED has enough brightness, just make it really really small, so it gives off just enough light. Since LED can be red, green and blue, make the entire screen with LED's printed on an array of invisible conductors.
What's the big deal about this? Well Plasma screens use a lot of wattage. And there is a possibility of destroying the pixels, either mechanically, or that the neon or the phosphorus inside degrades. A lot of heat is given off also, and it's kinda scary when u put ur hands behind the screen and u feel all that heat. On the other hand, with the led's, if they are powered corectly, they are theoretically nondistructive, they never fade away or burn. They normal red led uses around 10mA and if the size is decreased that would get close to 1mA or even less. That's my idea, i know that LED panels were made, but they're big and they use full size LEDs, which are not very good for a room size screen. Tell me what you think about it, and if it would be doable. I don't mind any criticizing. That's how i get better.
