Electromagnetic brake Printer Friendly Version
When you press the brake pedal like you normally would, the different current will be sent to electromagnet pads. The electromagnet force will stop the rotating disk. The electromagnet pads are placed close to the disk but will not touch the disk, so they will last forever and the system is simple with fewer parts.

U-Turn Signal Printer Friendly Version
Throughout my daily commute I see many people making U-turns, some with ease, but the majority seems to encounter difficulty. The process itself isn't difficult, but dealing with your fellow commuters while performing the move can be. I feel that if vehicles were equipped with a U-turn signal drivers would be less likely to rear-end you and perpendicular drivers less likely to turn in front of you. The signal would apprise other commuters of your intention to make the sometimes dreadful maneuver, while possibly preventing an accident due to confusion.
Reward: Further assistance or advice on making this idea a reality, or an idea of equal or greater value.
