Mood Fans Printer Friendly Version
I was actually pretty sure this exists, but much to my surprise, I couldn't find it on the Net, so I'm posting it here.
My proposal is the "Mood Fan", a simple hand fan with a smiling mouth on one side and a frown on the other. The imagery I have in mind is mostly humorous - two people talking on a hot day, one person telling something and the other one expressing his emotions simply by flipping his fan from one side to the other.
With a bit of inventiveness, I'm sure it would be possible to accomodate more than just two moods, but maybe the black/white, yin/yang approach already does the trick.
Reward: A set of these fans for me and some of the people I know

Collar - Cuff Dirt prevention sticker or barrier Printer Friendly Version
Every time I go out in the hot sun in tropical climates, dirt, pollution and sweat gets stuck mostly on the neck collar area. Cuffs too get dirty a lot due on Full Arm shirts.
Dirty collar and cuffs are the the most important inspection points for a garment to get into the washing machine, even though the rest of the garment is still clean.
To avoid this, stick something like a transparent fabric sticker (something like a scotch tape) on the areas like collar and cuffs that will act as a barrier between the skin and the garment. Just remove the barrier sticker and stick a new one. Need to make sure that the Scotch tape does not damage the cloth and does no harm to the skin either.
Other barrier ideas can be thought of as well.
This should save the garment going into the washing machine saving electricity, water, washing powder and also enhances the life of the garment and the original color stays longer.
Reward: First 100 rolls of this Barrier Tape free !

Self-Folding Clothes Printer Friendly Version
We all know the tedious and boring chore. Most people detest folding cloths, especially because you have to repeat it on a daily basis. What if we can simplify this process? Why not let the clothes fold themselves? This is NOT a fictitious idea. hear me out.
There is this stuff called memory wire. Basically, through the process of heating and cooling a wire is made with an ability to revert to a specific shape if it is heated up. We could make fabric made from/infused with a mesh of memory wire.
If we want to go all out, we could sell specially made tables/oven-like-thing that heats up to activate this wire- resulting in perfectly folded clothes (just throw that shirt onto the device and the shirt springs into its folded form).
A more affordable/practical way to activate the wire may to submerge it in hot water (this is by far the simplest method, but it may be hazardous and you end up with wet clothes if this product has a cotton element). On the other hand, in my opinion, it is best if the advised method of activating the self-fold function is to simply use a clothes iron. This is obviously all hypothetical, I haven't done any heavy research into the amount of force the wire exerts and how repeatable the process is.
Feel free to critique my idea through a reply to this. I will also be glad if any of you finds inspiration from this idea. Feel free to take it and improve it. Good luck.
Reward: I don't really need any public recognition, but it will be great if you can give me one self-folding product with your signature and a short message recognizing my contribution (It will be my personal treasure).
