Self-Updating Calling Card Printer Friendly Version
Everyone knows the problem that someone gave you his calling card, but by the time you use it, the phone number is outdated. The Self-Updating Calling Card has a battery and a tiny receiver. Once in a while it will connect to the Self-Updating Calling Card Center that has issued the card. If there's new data, it will automatically replace the old information and show it on the card. Thus your contacts will stay up-to-date forever. If you want to break with your old acquaintances, no problem, just cancel your account at the Self-Updating Calling Card Center, your old acquaintances may then recycle your cards by using them for themselves.
Reward: Get me a set of cards for free, or if there's a monthly fee for using those cards, waive the fee for me.

Tiny GPS locating devices Printer Friendly Version
Currently companies sell GPS locating devices for vehicles, so the police know where your car is when it's lost. What if you were able to buy penny size locators for everything you own? You could put them on your bike (or could put it on your lost bike), that canoe that traveled down stream without you, that 10 foot model rocket that caught a huge gust of wind, your dog or cat, your boat, family heirlooms, cell phone, credit card, purse, or even your secret diary that was blown away in the hurricane. The owner could view the location of their possessions from their computer. The chips would be placed on the object and then turned on by an access code from your computer. They would run on very tiny batteries that last a lifetime, since they wouldn't be used much. After the code has been entered, the card would send an automatic signal to the computer whenever the owner wants one.
If the locator were ever taken off, the location of the incident would automatically be sent to your computer. This would be done using a trigger of some sort (like a spring) that once released would automatically send the signal. This would stop a criminal from tricking an individual to the location of the stolen possession. They wouldn't be able to place the locator on a truck at a rest stop, and then take the goods to their nearby home. The owner could take the locator off of an object and place it onto something else, and would have to be turned on again by the access code. The size of these devices depends on technology. Today GPS devices are as small as a baseball. In the future they could be the size of a penny.
Reward: the product.

Magnetic Auto Business Card Holder Printer Friendly Version
Business owners could have a weather proof magnetic business card holder that they could stick on the side of their vehicle to advertise their business. People interested in the business owner's services can take a business card right from the vehicle. This would work best obviously if the business owner had a sign next to the business cards advertising their services.
Reward: Credit for the idea.
