Automated Roof Compartment Storage Printer Friendly Version
To incorporate a roof storage in car design. This storage can be made available by a push of a button. It will utilize some series of motors (similar to sunroof motor) that will move the roof and provide some space between the outer roof and inner roof part for the storage compartment. The final shape will still maintain the vehicle aerodynamic shape. When not in use, the roof shall be lowered to the original shape in order to prevent unnecessary extra fuel consumption due to wind resistance created by the vehicle. This type of storage compartment is suitable for 7-seater MPV/SUV with a very limited cargo capacity.

Off-peak energy storage Printer Friendly Version
Take advantage of excess electrical production capacity during night-time hours by equipping homes and businesses with large battery systems. This approach has been suggested for electrical cars where the disadvantage is the size of the battery system, but this would be much less of an issue for homes and businesses. Power companies would need to provide a cost incentive to encourage the use of these and the energy storage mode would be best controlled remotely by centralized operation at the power company to optimize efficiency. Current battery technology could be implemented easily. Having these energy storage devices would likely encourage individual consumers to add solar-voltaic or wind energy collection technology to work with the storage system.

Compressed DVD libraries Printer Friendly Version
I am tired of buying DVDs and piling them. With mega storage drives available, maybe someone should compress about 200 movies and market them. Select and create your own DVD library, something like MP3 songs on a single player. With a user interface to choose movies and plug into any TV, you have your own library and storage is easy.
Reward: I guess someone is already doin it, if so, please point me in the right direction.
