Neural Networks to Model Guitar Amps Printer Friendly Version
Currently there are many guitar "modellers" available to recreate sounds via DSP of various well known amps - but they never sound or respond "just right".
How about using Neural Networks to come up with accurate transfer functions to process straight guitar input signals to realistic sounding and responding amplifier output signals? You train the networks by playing the guitar through the actual amp you want to model, and use backpropogation of error to define the specific amp transfer fucntion over some training time.

The New Wave of Gaming Printer Friendly Version
every few years a new video game paradigm must be invented to keep people entertained. as time has gone on, we spend more and more time playing games like world of warcraft, everquest, the sims, and so on. i believe that the next step in games is the game that lets you achieve something in real life while you play. it's already showing up in games that are designed to make you smarter or more physically fit.
the idea is this: a game where the quests are for things that real people need done in the real world. the rewards are points towards being able to create your own quests.
for example: fred needs help digging a ditch. he puts up a quest, questers show up and do the work, and he confirms through the game that those particular players did the work. they each get XP that let them put up their own quests for compuer repair, tax work, and so on.
properly presented the game could be made attractive to kids, and the inherent financial advantage should be attractive to adults.
Reward: just let me know it worked.

Debit card Improvement Printer Friendly Version
How many people hate going to pay for something with their debit card and have to swipe it card facing me or facing teller?
Why don't they make those debit card readers to read both sides of the card so it doesn't matter which way you swipe. Or make the swipe strip on both sides of the card...
Reward: Not having to see - Swipe facing
