Liquid Wax Crayon Pens Printer Friendly Version
What would be better than a regular crayon? One that fully saturates the paper in full vibrant colors that fully cover a page and leave no lines behind. Very little effort to use a liquid wax crayon pen that brings out the best colors ever. Just like a pen or ink the pen can come in different sizes and they could glow in the dark or be flourescent colors or any kind of materials added to the wax. This product is related to different paints and white out type products that can be flow controlled. A mixture of powderized wax particles in a drying adhesive type catalyst or delivery system.
You wouldn't need heat to melt the wax since it is infused (in powderized form) into a pen type delivery system. The delivery system is similar to chemically melting the powderized wax like you can take off finger nail polish or paint with a minimum of fumes given off of the chemical. Very easy to melt the wax without endangering anyone with heat to melt the wax. The color would also beat colored pencils in brightness and all other qualities. A better crayon and fun for all!
Reward: Yearly set of these for life!

3D scanner Printer Friendly Version
Prototype: Make a laser on a tripod with the laser facing down. It scans an area below it with a class 3b laser (like a pen laser). This scan works like a CRT in that it fires a single beam to the top left of the scan area and moves to the right side, drops down and scans right to left and so on until it reaches the bottom where it reverses and scans back up. A sensor reads the distance from the laser to the topography being scanned and produces a 3D computer image in a CAD program. Scan all six sides from three angles each and create a perfect reproduction of the objects volume in 3D space wire frame. Let another sensor (probably a CCD) read the color, illumination, contrast etc, and let the computer apply this information to the wire frame 3D object scanned with the laser like paint.
Finished product: Removing the tripod and holding the 3D camera like a camera, scan any object in range and copy its exact dimensions. My thoughts were to use this to quickly add 3D content to 3D based games to avoid the creation process used today or if you needed a manufacturer to make a copy of something, you could scan it and e-mail the info very quickly.
Reward: credit

Entrepreneur's Business Park Printer Friendly Version
Every area has talented people. Skills all going to waste. Dying of loneliness. And lack of opportunity. In my experience, the only people who really benefit from the agencies set-up to help entrepreneurs, are the employees who mostly do very little to actually help alleviate their struggles.
So why not introduce a true enterprise zone to help bring enterprising people together. Government funded, industrial type building - you're allowed all kinds of styles in business parks! It could be a sort of theme park for adults, with places to crash out, bars that serve good food/drinks, IT stations, art studio facilities, noticeboards, keep fit equipment including fun stuff like swings, a gym for people to play ball games etc., and most importantly, a large conference suite so that council members or big business can consult the brainy bods!
Surround the place with loads of trees, flowers. Create enough parking (could be underground). Maybe charge members an annual fee, reimburseable if they make a good contribution to help run the place efficiently/cost effectively.
For ambience, try using weatherboarding on the floor - nail down and sand the panels, apply paint/varnish! Cheap, effective, hard-wearing. Don't make ceilings too high or problems keeping place warm. Could show educational films relating to art/craft/design. Hold seminars about whatever people are interested in, e.g. tackling poverty... Could run a store re-using waste paper etc. There's so much potential, the mind boggles!
Reward: Just make it happen! Invite me along to my local think tank. That would more than suffice.
