Tiny GPS locating devices Printer Friendly Version
Currently companies sell GPS locating devices for vehicles, so the police know where your car is when it's lost. What if you were able to buy penny size locators for everything you own? You could put them on your bike (or could put it on your lost bike), that canoe that traveled down stream without you, that 10 foot model rocket that caught a huge gust of wind, your dog or cat, your boat, family heirlooms, cell phone, credit card, purse, or even your secret diary that was blown away in the hurricane. The owner could view the location of their possessions from their computer. The chips would be placed on the object and then turned on by an access code from your computer. They would run on very tiny batteries that last a lifetime, since they wouldn't be used much. After the code has been entered, the card would send an automatic signal to the computer whenever the owner wants one.
If the locator were ever taken off, the location of the incident would automatically be sent to your computer. This would be done using a trigger of some sort (like a spring) that once released would automatically send the signal. This would stop a criminal from tricking an individual to the location of the stolen possession. They wouldn't be able to place the locator on a truck at a rest stop, and then take the goods to their nearby home. The owner could take the locator off of an object and place it onto something else, and would have to be turned on again by the access code. The size of these devices depends on technology. Today GPS devices are as small as a baseball. In the future they could be the size of a penny.

Static Electric Battery Recharger Printer Friendly Version
What this recharger does is collect static electricity, from the air, 24 hours a day and would charge your devices when you plug them in. The air inside your house contains tons of static to begin with. Why else would we have products that remove it from our clothes. Using materials that are very sensitive to static, it would constantly build a stronger and stronger charge then it would convert this to standard electricity and charge your battery or batteries with a Universal plug in to all devices thus, providing free electricity forever to your batteries since all batteries in today's devices contain very little electricity and use very little as well. The converter is not hard to build since electricity is all basically the same. You can easily build it with a balloon on your hair or with feathers or cetain fabrics and there are materials that react to static that would be more feasable to use.

Full Light Range Cameras Printer Friendly Version
All cameras have a limited amount of defintion, clarity, and details in images, due to the fact that definition in different light ranges disappear when in bright or dim light. In dim light all bright definition is lost and in bright light you can't see any defintion in the dark areas. I propose that we create cameras (still or movie) that can capture all definition, clarity, and details in all light ranges and conditions (dark, mid-range, and bright). This would beat plasma screens in resolution and even beat the details picked up and captured by the human eye even with the best vision.
This full light range capture is easy to produce. All cameras are now computerized with Charged Coupled Devices (computer chips) to capture light, details, resolution, clarity, and details instead of mechanical parts of the older type cameras of the past but, the image is captured by only one chip. If we add three of these CCD chips (one for each light range) then we cature the entire image instead of just one light range. Right now your most current technologically advanced cameras capture one range at a time. I did research with camera companies and they are only working on resolution and not light ranges. In other words they are not addressing this issue directly.
