Child protection location device Printer Friendly Version
During the last few months there has been a rush of child abductions in the U.K. Most of these cases conclude in quite tragic circumstances. A case this week in Cambridge, which involved two ten-year-old friends, led me to the following idea.
The police didn’t pursue a case of abduction until three days had passed. By this time the children could be anywhere.
I don't want to be seen as profiteering on these tragedies nor do I wish to use scare tactics in advertising, but the truth is technology is available today that, with a little adapting, can save a lot of time and lives and in some cases prevent this sort of thing happening altogether.
Allot of us have cars with GPS location or tracking. There are even battery powered personal location devices available on the market. Pets are fitted with id chips, criminals are tagged, and yet the most precious commodity that the human race can produce is left to fend for itself. There is a global market of children who need to be protected, and we can do something about it.
What would it take to develop these devices for the protection of our children?

Please contact me for further information.

Advertising on the Bottom of Beer Glasses Printer Friendly Version
As far as I know, advertising is most effective in spaces where nobody can keep their eyes off. One of those spaces that has been missed by advertising experts so far is the bottom of beer glasses. When you drink out of a glass, you automatically cast a glance at the bottom, so this would obviously be the perfect location to place a flashy ad.
Of course, there should be different prices depending on the type of glass. Putting ads on the bottom of a pint glass wouldn't make much sense, because the foam on British beers is just too thick. (On the other hand, you can also fill a pint glass with crystal-clear cider, so maybe there should be a flat fee for beer glass advertising after all...)
Reward: Free beer would be fine. Also maybe some free advertising space for the guy who created this website. Hey, I like it!

Teflon Non-Stick Additive For Fabrics Printer Friendly Version
A wash cycle and dryer heat set Teflon like additive that would repel unwanted materials from pet hair too dust or dirt. This way you could simply shake off the blanket or shirt (blouse) or pants after they aquire the unwanted material. It would simply float to the floor where all other unwanted things go anyway and get vacuumed up evetually some time later.
This treatment for fabrics wouldn't be like starch and make them stiff, but leave the fabrics soft and flexible. Comfortable fabrics with that little added advantage of a permiated, fully saturated to repel and keep everything but liquids out which you could add to this product. The treatment might be able to even keep out moisture once heat set in the dryer and then only break down with soaps or detergents for cleaning purposes.
Reward: My face on a billboard advertising this product! A BIG face!
