Inflatable Tent Printer Friendly Version
A small, individual tent that can be inflated through the use of a foot pump, and a quick release valve for easy deflation. No more wrestling with poles and ties to try to erect your tent. Think of the time this would save.
The tent could be made out of a strong material, such as gortex, to help in the prevention of holes or tears. The gortex fabric would also make it weather proof ... no more rain coming in from above. Due to the fact that it is inflatable you would have an instant mattress to lie on instead of the cold, hard ground that is normally associated with camping.
And, if you really want to get crazy with it ... you could throw it out in the middle of the lake (it floats!) and you'd have an instant waterbed!!
Just a fun idea that was running through my head!!
Reward: I want a "Bubble Tent!"

Sports sweatpants to help you run faster Printer Friendly Version
Put elastic strips on the outside of the knees and ankles of sweat pants. This will store some of the energy when you land as you are running, because when you hit the ground your knees and ankles flex. Then it will be easier to take the next step. The contraction of the elastic would help you push off from the ground better, because you extend your knees and ankles to push yourself off the ground to take your next stride. You should be able to run faster. It might also take some of the strain off your knee and ankle joints, because it would cushion your landings.
It would be important to anchor the sweatpants in place so they don't ride up or down as you run. You could anchor them below by making them fit over the foot like a stocking and anchor them above with suspenders. You also wouldn't want to make the elastic too stiff or the person couldn't bend their legs properly. If you could just store maybe 40% of the energy when they hit the ground in the elastic it should be enough to make it significantly easier for them to push off the ground for the next stride.
Reward: A pair of these sweatpants

Calorie Counting and Scanning Watch Printer Friendly Version
I love my heart rate monitor watch, but I would love it better if I didn't have to wear anything else, and it alone would be able to monitor my heart rate and calculate calories burnt. But what would really be awesome is, if it also had the capability of scanning products' bar codes and could tally for me how many calories I consumed versus how many I burnt. I think that would really help with weight loss and healthy eating goals.
