Eatable Tooth Picks And Other Food Related Items Printer Friendly Version
If you want your drinks with an olive or your pre-dinner snacks while entertaining guests, then you want them alive (they are more fun that way!). So, you simply make everything from finger sandwhiches to finger food stuck with something that can be digested. Wood can splinter and you can choke on them. You can make candy tooth picks and enjoy extra flavor. The kids would love to suck on a hard sugar cinnamon tooth pick as well, so it is fun for the whole family. Other products like utensils, cups, plates or other items related to eating and drinking can be made eatable as well. Or they could simply be a kind of candy anyone could partake in!
Reward: Tons of them but, not literally!

Car Oven Shelf Printer Friendly Version
This is actually an idea that was briefly used by Ford in the 1956 station wagon but was dropped and I don't think it has been used since. It is perfectly possible to literally cook with your car. When you are driving, your engine heats up to a very high temperature and on a long drive it effectively creates a perfect oven environment for food. This can be done anyway - all you need to do is to wrap your food tightly in tin foil and somehow fix it to the engine. It works especially well with food such as chicken breast, vegetables or baked apples/bananas. There should be no risk of dangerous fumes entering your food as their should be no dangerous fumes in your engine! If there is: get it checked out!
The problem with this cooking technique is that food can easily slip off the engine and through onto the road underneath. Bye bye oven-cooked prawns in spicy sauce.
I propose that new cars be built with a special shelf or compartment, either inside the engine or somewhere where heat can be redirected from the engine to cook the food. Somewhere that is clean from any engine oil and holds food in place. This would be particularly good in camper vans. For long journeys this is REALLY great, and it is also putting all that waste heat energy to good use!
Reward: A free prototype for my car, and maybe you can cook me an engine-fresh dinner. Thank-you!

Calorie Iintake Reader (C.I.R.) Printer Friendly Version
We all know of instruments that can measure the calories you burn out, but what if an instrument was invented which would calculate the calories you're taking in through all that you eat and drink through out the day. You could then decide whether you go light on dinner or just skip it! The thing to work on now is to figure out on to which part of the body should the instrument be attached and the system it would use to calculate.
