Color Changing House Paint or Vinyl Siding Printer Friendly Version
the idea is this: in the summer you want your house to repel heat, in the winter you want your house to absorb heat. if you were to make a paint or vinyl siding that became darker when it got cold and lighter when it got warm, it would accomplish the goal.
Reward: just let me know it worked :-)

"Leave-up" Holiday Christmas lights Printer Friendly Version
Here's what I would love if someone would create... Christmas lights that can be left up all year without making you look like the problem neighbor.
I'm thinking of a thin housing or tube that blends seamlessly with the gutters on your house. The housing would appear white when the lights were off, but would be transparent enough to see the lights through when they were turned on. Of course, the lights would have to be reliable so you don't lose strings here and there and have to climb up every year anyway.
They would clip to gutters and be inflexible enough that they would look like part of the gutter (not flexible like rope light, which would sag over time).
Other styles that blend with roof shingles would also be cool so you could have lights on the top of the roof too. But starting with white to blend with gutters would seem the easiest place to start.
Reward: I would love to have these installed on my house!!

Never shovel snow again! Printer Friendly Version
Hate shoveling the walk-way, porch or driveway? Small heated coils that would run under your concrete walk way or driveway (heating the concrete or pavement just above freezing temperature to keep snow, or ice from building up, saving time, money and slipping and falling) would eliminate having to stand out in the cold and run a snow blower, shovel or the expensive daily bill of having someone plow for you.
