Personalised Postcard Printer Printer Friendly Version
A machine similar to a photo printer at photo printing shops. Photos can be transferred to the machine via usb, dropbox, etc. They can then be manipulated to make postcards, which it then prints out on postcard paper, with or without lines on the back. Could also incorporate puzzle postcards and prepaid postage.
These machines can be purchased by cafes for their customers who want to send personalised postcards. At the same time they can order a coffee or something to eat.
Reward: One machine to keep for myself and another to give to a local cafe in Helsinki.

Clip on music stand light from the bottom Printer Friendly Version
I need a music stand light that can clip on and actually light up both pages of the sheet music without overloading my music stand from the heavy weight at the top and hinder my scores that are sometimes a bit taller then the stand itself.
The ones available in market are either mini clip-ons that don't light up the sheet music properly; and those that do are all designed to be hung from the top - which is good if there is a lot of space and your stand is strong enough, like those in my orchestra.
But the fact is, most music stands used by students at home cannot handle a heavy clip-on light at the top. Furthermore, original scores tend to be taller then the stands, so clipping at the top or even the side is not useful.
Many musicians share my problem, especially those who play portable pianos which usually have a shorter stand. They all just sigh and hope that somehow, someday, someone will invent a good light like that.
So I'm here putting it out there to anyone who would like to work on this idea - please invent a compact music stand light that:
- is battery operated
- clips from the bottom
- doesn't overload the typical stand
- covers an area good enough for two pages (not like those mini round spot lights that are good for goodness knows what)
- does not fall off or obstruct the flipping of pages
Reward: Me and my other good-lighting deprived musician friends will forever be grateful, especially if I can get it on eBay.

Kindle or iPhone Audio Option for Books Printer Friendly Version
On any books you may have purchased for the iPhone or Kindle, I think there should be an audio button that you can press so that if your eyes get too tired to continue reading, or your partner asks you to turn the bedside light off, your story turns into an audio book and the remainder is read to you. You could plug in your headphones or just enjoy a good book while your driving on a long journey. That way you could enjoy all books on audio and not just certain ones that have been previously recorded & cost a fortune!
Reward: The first device with this ability & the recognition for the idea.
