Ladder collapse protector Printer Friendly Version
Having read about deaths occurring due to people extending ladders past the safe extension point I felt there had to be an answer.
My idea is that the last rungs of the ladder have an extra extrusion on the back of the rung thus stopping the extended front part of the ladder from being located on the last rungs. This would stop people from overstretching the ladder thus avoiding a collapse due to undue stresses.
An after market kit could also be sold as it would be quite a simple job to adapt old ladders.
Reward: Named recognition and saving people from injury would be nice.

Bunk Desks Printer Friendly Version
Being a teacher, I find that my classroom is too crowded with lab tables to maneuver (16 lab tables for 32 students). I think I should be able to make use of the vertical room space with bunk desks. We could seat belt the students in up top.

Self-cleaning carpet Printer Friendly Version
I figure since there are pop-up sprinklers for outside, why can't there be pop-up vacuumes for inside? I know it would be hard to cover up the holes in the carpet where they pop up, but it would save a lot of vacuuming hassle. Imagine what you could do with the push of a button...
