New Baby Seat (3 ideas) Printer Friendly Version
On long trips, my active son is strapped into a car seat for many long hours. He would LOVE to stand up, but, of course, that is dangerous when driving. That and other things have made me do some thinking about baby seats. I have three ideas...
First, when my son goes to sleep, the seat tilts so little, that he must literally go to sleep sitting up. It would be nice if the seat could really adjust so that he could be in a more prone position.
Second, to strap my son in, I must go through some more process. Get this seatbelt buckle aligned with this one, put them together, plug them into the receptacle, etc. Why not have a SINGLE STEP baby seat? This not only allows you to get the baby strapped in quickly on those hot days... but allows you to get the baby out easily in an emergency.
Thirdly, and this is the main one, why not use something like a mesh of seatbelt material to create a "safety cage" that allows a young child to stand up (in the back seat), actually move around, and so forth, but would keep him from going through the windshield in an accident?
It would be kind of like a "soft" playpen, since the "cage" would be made of seat-belt material that is woven into a easy-to-see-through mesh. Further, the mesh would be held in place with the use of regular seatbelt buckles, which makes it very easy to close and open. The front of the cage could have a pillow-type material--kind of an already-deployed airbag in case of emergency. It could be machine-washable and so forth.

Intelligent Car Headlights Printer Friendly Version
When we make a turn the car turns before we can actually see the portion of the road where the car has turned into. We can have movable headlights, which can turn based on how the steering wheel turns. So it would be like human eyes which would turn when a human turns into a corner.
Reward: Add such headlights in Indian cars, I will buy one.

Local Traffic Situation Viewer Printer Friendly Version
GPS-based local traffic situation viewer: Given the GPS satellites and mapping satellites we have today, if we can have satellites dedicated to specific areas, we can have them prepare dynamic maps of the traffic situation: 1. periodically, 2. On demand. I am driving my car fitted with a GPS-local traffic situation viewer (LTSV). I got into a jam, and want to know the situation ahead and behind (can I go on the wrong side ;-), take a turn here, take a right in the next road etc.), I just press the button in my LTSV. That sends my current position, and gets me a traffic picture. If the place is pretty crowded, we can assume that many people will push their buttons and hence the picture needn't be taken multiple times. The device can have controls for zooming in and out, and for traversing up, down, left and right, so I can trace to find the site of obstruction if any. Don't know if such a device already exists.
Reward: One such device to survive the Bangalore traffic
