Human powered monorail Printer Friendly Version
I've seen the 'Shweeb' pedal powered monorail, but what if you want a better view, more power and a more natural posture? What if you crossed the Shweeb monorail system with a drive system modeled after an elliptical machine? (check out the elliptiGO). An upright, 1-2 person pod designed for speed, aerodynamics, and low-impact human-powered transportation.

Street Ice clearer Printer Friendly Version
I suggest a vehicle (driven or hand pushed for pavements) which progresses slowly along roads carrying out the following stages to clear snow/ice.
Front of machine has chopping/grinding/scraping blades with a hot air heater and suction device. Collected ice and snow is forced into an internal heating tank. Tank is violently churned and mixed whilst being heated enough to melt to slush/water. Side vents expell water into guttering and drains, leaving a cleared road/pavement.
Considering the array of sophisticated machinery on our roads today and the polluting effects and costs of salt/grit spreading I surmise that this would be a feasible and economical device to build and maintain with current technology.
Reward: Just a name-check in the device name would be nice!

Quick Connect and Release Vehicle Tires Printer Friendly Version
Vehicle tires are attached and detached by tightening and loosening several lug nuts to the rim. This idea would be to design a quick connect mechanism that would easily attach and detach a vehicle tire. This design should be secure enough that it would be difficult for robbers just to take the tires. The good point of this idea is that it cuts of a lot of time in replacing a vehicle tire.
