Automatic House Blinds and Curtains Printer Friendly Version
My idea is pretty unique. I came up with the idea of automatic house blinds and curtains. Instead of getting up every time to close the blinds and curtains, you can do it with just a push of a button. As you push the button on the remote control for your blinds and curtains, just watch them close on it's own.

Ecological home for cold areas Printer Friendly Version
Why not build a house that uses ground and snow as isolation?
The house could have 3 sloped sides going to ground level and there if it is helpful could be roof covered air pockets between underground wall and ground. One side would be mostly glass. During winter the snow would help insulate most of the building (as there are no walls except the glass wall letting light and warmth in). Rainwater could be collected and used (by dehydration) in summer to cool the building. Air would need to be circulated from high point of the building to low point of the building. The roof could be "ground" roof.
Reward: Live a month in one.

Friendly Bath Mat Seeking House-Share Printer Friendly Version
A bath mat made from rubber, with hundreds of 15mm tentacles which stick up vertically and cushion/massage the foot whilst draining the excess water away to the base of the mat (much as the latest pub drip trays)... There should then be a removable plug facility in the base so that the water which has drained into the capacity base can be poured away after use. The joy is that the mat may be used by a house-full of people without anyone suffering the soggy bath mat fate of going second etc. AND there are probably reflexology related benefits from the movable tentacles on the sole too. I think a transparent rubber would be cool and you could also do funky 'imac' style colours too as well as a kinky black version?
Reward: Some bath mats as described - various colours and a trip to the factory of origin.
