Paper Houseboots Printer Friendly Version
I need a pair of cheap houseboots (actually, a bunch of pairs); and so does my contractor and lots of other people).
I'm building a house, and there's dirt all around. Every time I need to come inside for something while I'm working out in the dirt, I have to stop and take my boots off (or else track dirt and sand onto my nice new cork floor). And then put 'em back on again when I go back out. A royal pain, both ways.
After I came up with this idea, my wife and I found a pair of big slip-on booties in a catalog--for 27 bucks! Not what I had in mind at all. What I need is a paper pair that'll last for a few trips into the house and then can be thrown away. A couple bucks a pair would be OK, but under a buck would be great.
Yes, there are hospital and cleanroom booties that one can buy for maybe 15 cents a pair if you buy a case of 300. But if you've got a handful of tools or something, you don't have two hands free to put 'em on. What's needed is something that one can slip one's boots into without using one's hands at all. They should have slightly raised backs, so that dirt doesn't just slide off the back end while you're walking. Kind of like large low-back bedroom slippers.
Housewives with kids would probably appreciate having houseboots in small sizes, too.
Reward: A lifetime supply? Small royalty if the idea really makes money?

Wireless Music Pencil Printer Friendly Version
I know that lots of people would like to listen to music during class in a very secret, efficient way. I know how it can be done.
All you need is a MP3 player, Mini Disc player, CD player or any audio device with a stereo/headphone jack. There is a small antenna that plugs into your audio device's stereo/headphone jack. You also get a specially designed pencil which has a built-in receiver and speaker at the end. So what happens is you turn on your audio device and the music is sent from the antenna and picked up by the receiver in the pencil and you hear the music from the pencil. The pencil will look almost exactly like the PhD pencils. To get the eraser, you pull on the small speaker and a cartridge about 2 inches long comes out with an eraser on the other end. When the speaker is out, it twists to turn it on/off and for volume control. The range of the antenna should reach around 6 feet.
I think this would be really sweet invention because you could just put your head on your hand with the pencil tip by your ear and you could listen to music during class or anytime since there aren't any wires to deal with.
Reward: A free antenna with pencil so i can listen to tunes during class.
