Fingerprint Doorknob Printer Friendly Version
Ever been caught looking for your house key, or maybe you just forgot it inside when you left the house. I came up with this idea, it would be a finger print scanner right on doorknob were the key hole is all you have to do is register you finger print on a microcomputer, and whenever you want to lock or unlock the door, you just put you finger on the scanner.

Window-Free House Printer Friendly Version
After replacing the windows in the house I rent out for the 2nd time, it occurred to me that there is really no longer a need for the windows to be there. With the modern technology we possess today, we could devise a flat screen video projector for the inside of the house, a mini-camera (weather-proof of course), for the outside, and a small central computer processor to organize it all. In this way you could control what images you see when you are sitting in a room, or entertaining.
It would also help with air conditioning (less heat loss, less sunshine to heat up curtains, floors, etc.), and heat. And with the computer controls, if it's raining and nasty out, just turn to the daffadills and gently rolling stream program, or whatever your choice may be. If you wish to see what is going on outside, turn it to standard operation. I would recommend an alternate emergency escape in the event of fire or other emergency.
Reward: give one to me to install in my home.

Monitoring the Elderly Living Alone via Motion Sensors Printer Friendly Version
Basically, each room in the house would be equipped with an IR motion sensor. These sensors would then be linked to a hub somewhere in the house via bluetooth, X-10 or whatever which in turn can communicate with a carer. The sensors can trigger an alarm if no motion is monitored, meaning the client may have fallen or worse. This idea seems fairly straight forward and I'd be surprised if people haven't thought of it already but I can't seem to find any company online that actually markets it as a product.
Reward: Credit
