City Windmill Printer Friendly Version
Design a windmill that adjusts to the amount of wind that is blowing. If there is not much wind then not much electricty is going to be produced, but it is still running. Most windmills need 6PMH to start and then max out. As the wind gets stronger the tension should get stronger to produce more power. If the wind is low the tension should release so that a small amount of power is being produced. The actual design of the windmill should not be like a normal one, it should be designed to rotate off of the smallest amount of wind.
Reward: I wouldnt mind my house running off of this.

Body Dryer Printer Friendly Version
Imagine the following... A plastic (36" tall x 6" wide x 2" deep) body dryer. It would house two hair blowdryer motors at the bottom. The panel would have vented slits or holes, or directional vents like car air vents on dash, and it would plug in to outlet. Mounted on the wall, with a descrete slim design, a large button could be tapped with one's toe to turn on. Hot air is pumped out along the entire length of the vertical panel. Design chambers so that air is channeled in a way that is blows out equally across entire surface. You could dry off after shower/bath as usual, then turn on to enjoy that last bit of drying while primping in the mirror.
Reward: Purging creative thoughts that keep building up.

Spherical Laundry Basket Cage Printer Friendly Version
My idea is a laundry basket cage which is spherical in design. The advantage of this design is that it can be rolled down stairs or along the floor using the hands or feet to propel forward toward its destination. There are no wheels or handles to this unit.
Made from the same flexible basket-weave plastic that is used on the sides of tradional laundry baskets, the laundry basket cage has a serviceably large, round hinged opening for loading and unloading the laundry. Closing the hatch completes the sperical design. It's now ready to be kicked and/or rolled down the stairs, along the hallway toward the laundry room.
When being used as a hamper or when unloading into the washer, there is a separate round plastic "stabilizing ring" where the cage rests. This plastic ring will sit on the floor under the cage, steadying the sphere. The ring is made of the same light-weight plastic as the laundry cage.
This begs the question, what about when you want to return folded clothes to other parts of the house? In the bottom of the cage is a shallow flattened surface for folded laundry. The lid (hatch) has an inset cut-out handle for carrying the sphere.
Carrying laundry baskets at arm's length is one of the hardest household chores. With gravity and its "basket ball" design, the laundry basket cage makes half the job easier.
Kids would be more inclined to get their laundry to the wash room. College kids would be kickin' their laundry basket cages all over campus town.
Reward: I'd like a lifetime supply of the laundry basket cages. Six should last me for a good long time.
