Self-Leveling Boat Deck Printer Friendly Version
A friend showed me a YouTube video of a pool table that counteracts the movement caused by waves on a ship at sea (see next post). Why can't they make the entire deck of a boat work on the same principal?
No matter how much the waves rock the boat, the deck would remain level, just like the pool table. It would work using either some type of gyroscope or gimbal, or it would float independent from the base using some sort of counter-weight (possibly like a ball compass). After doing some research, I discovered that there is a device on the market that is basically a gyroscope in a box (see next post). It claims to reduce the effect of waves by 50%. Does anyone else think it's possible to engineer a way to keep the deck of a ship level at all times?
THANKS ALL!

Mp3 player dock for your car Printer Friendly Version
With the increase in popularity of the mp3 players, someone should design a car stereo that instead of a cd player or cassette deck, should be a sort of docking station for the mp3 player. You would no longer need to burn them to cd to play in the car. Just insert your mp3 player in the in dash unit and listen.
Reward: First I would like one, but I am also into almost any new and innovative electronics or computing items.
