Web-based distributed payment Printer Friendly Version
A website that allows groups of people to enter into a contract to distribute payments from a single source according to a simple percentage scheme. For example, if a creative product developed by a group was sold on the web, the resulting payments would be made through this website to a common account for the product, but then distributed to the individuals in the group automatically. This is similar to Paypal, but with the automatic distribution system, it allows long-term collaborations that do not require communication or futher negotiation between the group members. The site would include a notification of all group members that a payment had been made, the total, and the individual member's share. It would allow group members to change information about contact, login, and destination of payments. It would require input from all group members to change percentages or other terms of the agreement made for the group's project.

Thumb drive notification when you try to log out Printer Friendly Version
I've done it before, and I imagine you might have too. You plug in your USB drive into the USB port and open up your work, spend ages working on it, save. Log out. Walk away.
...which is fine, if you're at home. But I'm a school student, and a number of times I have left my thumb drive in a school computer, or seen it happen to other people. Sometimes, you get it back. Other students are not so honest.
The problem is, if you lose the USB drive, you use the work on it as well, either temporarily or permanently. The logical thing to do would be to back it up, but we're not perfect, and I (and probably others) never do.
I have seen programs (although I've never used them) that display a warning when you power off your computer/put it into standby, telling you that your USB drive is still in the computer. However, there are two problems with this (for my intended use, anyway):
1. At school (I'm a student) we don't turn off the computers at the end of each class. Instead, we simply log off so the next person may use the computer. The warning would never appear.
2. From what I've seen, these programs are installed on the computer itself, rather than being stored on the USB drive. We have over 100 computers and you can never be sure which one you're going to be using. Clearly the program needs to be stored on the USB drive, NOT the computer you plug it into.
So, what I'm suggesting: A small program that runs from your USB drive and, when it is still plugged into the computer and you try to log off, it displays a notification something along the lines of, "Wait a minute, don't leave me behind!"
(If anybody know of something like this, PLEASE let me know!)
Reward: Free use of this program and clear instructions on how to make it work if it's not just a simple app.

Virtual shopping homework with your 3D image Printer Friendly Version
We have on-line shopping sites where you can see the products and place an order. When buying clothes we always spend sometime checking the fitting and matching the colours of tops with bottoms etc.. With that foreword I want to present my idea: My idea is to take a full-size image of a person and have software convert it into a reasonable 3D image (we can ask the user for some other parameters such as height, waist and other bio-stats).
Once this is done, as part of the one-time registration process, you are ready with a digital YOU. Next the software service enables you to try various brands of clothes available. It renders it more or less exactly as it would look if you wear it. It also takes care to show the sag in the shirt if you choose a shirt of bigger size. The software service would follow certain specifications which would allow this virtual reality to be realised. The specifications would be used for both creating the virtual users while rendering the clothes on the virtual users.
After the user freezes on certain clothes, he can get the item code of the product. He can either order it on-line or print the report generated after he freezes the clothes. The report would have the item code and the addresses of the shops where these clothes are available. These shops are listed in the order of their distance from the users place.
Reward: getting it realized would be one BIG reward
