Vanity Pets Printer Friendly Version
Concept: Sick of looking at that marmalade cat? Why not create the pet of your dreams.
Solution: First, an electrolysis session for your pet (this will ensure that the animal’s natural hair doesn’t grow back). Now for the fun part – a pet hair transplant (conveniently, this has already been human tested). There would be no limit to color, patterns and textures to choose from, with a complete line of natural and synthetic hair. How about a psychedelic cat, checkered dog or a gerbil with pinstripes?
Practical applications include:
- an easily identifiable pet with hair patterns arranged to indicate owner’s address, phone number or name
- quadruped billboard (generate advertisements on the side of your pet)
- synthetic hair completely eliminates shedding
- make your pet appropriately match home décor prior to stuffing
- afro pooch
- when you tire of your pet, don’t get rid of him, just change his breed e.g. a St. Bernard that resembles a Dalmatian
- have a horse? make your own zebra
Reward: A pink chinchilla with a pom-pom head piece.

Anti-algae glass for fish tanks Printer Friendly Version
I noticed on just about every fish tank I've seen, a lot of the glass gets covered in algae and it takes a lot of time to clean. The glass of the tank could be covered in something which plants won't grow on.
I know it sounds simple and someone's probobly already thought of it but I haven't seen anything around like that.
Reward: Free product

Non-GPS-based, computer interfaced, in home, cat tracker Printer Friendly Version
I saw the GPS-based doggy locator system post. Has anyone done this one? Use one or three (triangulation) in-home reciever/transmitters (maybe paintable, to blend into corners of ceiling) to track and record the exact location of your cat(s), while in the house (or any location in the range)? It seems like it wouldn't necessarily need a really high-power or sophisticated transmitter/receiver. . . I would've used this when we trained our second cat to use the toilet. She would occasionally use a few, favorite areas when she forgot about using the toilet. We didn't want to (but did) have to cover up or otherwise use physical blockades and clutter up our, already small, place.
The system would set off an audible command from a stereo (or shock on collar, or have small, portable, remote water squirt/sprayers, -whatever) when the pet is in a pre-programmed, discretely defined, off-limits areas. It could be linked to your PC and use a program that knows the boundaries of your home (area, whatever). You'd first take the collar around these boundaries of your place so the computer program could learn/outline the volume of range. Then you could go around and set "NO!" zones (our cats know what "NO!" and "Good Kitty" means). One could change the location and size of "NO!" zones from the computer, without moving obstacles. One could also record where the kitties have been while you are gone or where they are now, if they like to hide and sleep. It seems like having three, inexpensive reciever/transmitters would allow for realiability as well as pinpoint locating - to keep cats off vertically different surfaces like the counters, away from small "visited" spots on the carpet (cats can detect even well-cleaned areas), while allowing them freedom to roam anywhere else.
Reward: Joy of seeing a low-cost system developed and work, and maybe get a free one and/or whatever the developer sees as fair.
