Limited Credit Exposure for Internet Purchases Printer Friendly Version
Problem:
1- not everyone has a credit card
2- many people are afraid of 'rip off' activity on the internet.
Solution: Market an internet 'top up' scratch card, exactly like they do for pre pay mobile phones, these can for simplicity be in various denominations to match the intended purchase.
a- the rip off risk is limited to the amount of the voucher
b- people will have full confidence in the transaction
c- no need for high levels of encryption
d- the vendor has security of payment
e- the revenue is up front
f- the software and admin are already created in the mobile phone industry.

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.

Energy Conservation - Parking Lots Printer Friendly Version
Have you ever seen the city lights at night ... noise pollution right? Well what about all the costs associated with those lights? Think of all those huge parking lots that have giant lights glowing all night long ... why? Now the facility owners and management will tell you it's about security, which is vaguely reasonable. However, they only need to be on when someone is there.
IDEA: Add motion sensors to all those light poles so that when someone moves in the area at night, the lights come on, but otherwise it is peacefully dark and quiet. Given the spacing of these poles typically should create a "grid" that would light an area with any activity - security maintained. Plus the cost savings from electrical conservation.
Reward: Credit for expressing the idea.
