Automotive Window Display (AWD) (pretty catchy huh?) Printer Friendly Version
The basis of my idea is automotive safety.
So, there has been much research and development of OLED (oragnic light emitting diod) applications. OLED's can be used to make different tv screens, computer screens, etc. The advantage to OLED technology in a screen is that it uses less energy, is very precise, can be made very thin (3mm), flexible, and transparent. My idea is to cover the inside of the windshield of a car with a transparent OLED screen which you would not notice when driving normally. Initially my idea came from night-vision equipped cars in which there is a display in the instrument panel that shows night-vision from an external camera. This makes driving at night much safer. But, if the entire windshield were to transition to a hi-def night vision shot from various cameras, then it would be like driving with mega-bright headlights without blinding everyone. Obviously this presents quite a bit of problems from people speeding at night, camera failure, transitioning to looking at a big screen, etc. Lots of problems. So, I started thinking a little smaller, for example, a virtual rear-view mirror that showed feed from a rear mounted camera. This would give a tremendously better view behind you. No matter when your head was in relation to the "mirror" it would always show the perfect view in perfect clarity. To the left and right of the rear-view mirror could display your blind spots. Any of these would be able to be turned on and off with the press of a button. These peresent problems as well, but what the hell. You could set your windshield to automatically tint when it was getting very bright. All of this would use more electricity but they are already underway in increasing the size of the battery in cars to accomidate increasing technology. With a windshield effectively working as a screen, there are tons and tons of possibilities, and I know we have the technology to do it. Give me some good feedback here guys. That includes some good criticism. If you stuck with me through this whole thing anyway.
Reward: Just a little recognition :)

Air Bags for Boats Printer Friendly Version
Large or small boats can carry air bags that inflate which can prevent a boat from sinking. A good desig of such air bags and smart placing of them (which can not be seen on deck) can result in balancing the boat and giving enough time for the crew to unload any water.

Safe Driving Printer Friendly Version
Texting and talking on a cell phone has become a huge problem. A way to reduce accidents due to talking or texting on a cell phone while driving is to disarm the cell phone as soon as the car is started or put into gear. A device inserted into the vehicles computer system or another area of the vehicle would make this possible. This would be excellent for parents when having new drivers in the family. Keep in mind this device would only cause the cell phone to not have service when the vehicle is in gear and running. Complete service would be restored when the vehicle is in park and not running or if the vehicle is exited.
Reward: Some invent this!
