Double Pained Pipes and Hoses Printer Friendly Version
Just like storm windows, a double pipe can keep the weather out, but PVC and steel pipes break in the winter even when they are insulated if they are single pipes. I have seen that pipes of any kind (plastic, steel, copper, etc.) used in any application come in any size you want them in. If you have a one inch pipe then you place the hardly useable insulation over it tightly, then you place a slightly larger pipe over it which provides a pocket of air around the inner pipe which will never freeze since it is never exposed to the air. Even glass can produce this effect. Imagine how easy this quick fix is for any type of pipe especially a plastic pipe of some sort when you are passing a liquid of any kind through it and you do not want its temperature to change.
This idea is applicable to rubber hoses as well or any material holding any liquid where the temperature of the liquid is to remain the same. The real use is too keep the plumber away from the house when the pipes freeze because they are payed exorbitant prices and it takes days to go through an entire wall to repair and/or replace a pipe or hose.

Shingle Sheets Printer Friendly Version
Imagine shingling your house in one half hour, rather than back breaking labor for days. If you were to place hundreds of shingles on one large sticky roll and have it crane lifted to the top of the house and simply stick the shingle sheets covering the entire roof, then you would have a very fast and efficient way to shingle a house. It would also not leak, because it couldn't be lifted by the air or any outside conditions of weather. It would also have no break in between shingles, and there for would seal the entire roof. The only tool needed to complete the very fast process is a utility knife, which would be used to cut off any extra shingle material on the edges of the house. It could look like a regularly shingled house, or it could be more designish and you could add any logo, design, pattern, look, or even cartoon characters. It would be cheaper to make, and even more cheaper with hardly any labor cost!

Frequency-based search in home Printer Friendly Version
This is yet another search solution for things you may lose within you own four walls - but with a new twist.
Remember those key pendandts that made sound when you whistle? Something like that for finding small objects like phone or remotes. There would be one base unit (appliance). You could change frequency on it (135, 136,137 ...) with simple + - buttons. When click on send it would transmit that frequency in small area. Enough for house or flat.
Each small object would come with receiver set to certain frequency. Remote will respond with some sound when it hears frequency 135. DVD remote to 136. Phone (handset) would respond to 138.
Receivers could be on stickers. You would get package of 10 when you buy base unit. You could glue it to small objects.
Reward: New remote for VHS.
