The movie bowl Printer Friendly Version
A recyclable cardboard, collapsible bowl shaped like a steamer insert for a saucepan ~ for use in cinemas. You know how peole love to eat potato chips etc in the movies, but the crackling of the bag is so annoying to those around you? Cheap to produce, the candy bar can supply the bowl with purchase of packet of chips; moviegoers can then open packet and pour into opened bowl, and dispose of packet in bin before entering cinema. Luxury, and no more waiting for noisy parts of the movie to eat!
Reward: Free Movie admission or products

Eliminate Media Piracy Printer Friendly Version
When we purchase Hardware that plays electronic Media of any kind, the manufacturer (or distributor/retailer) of the Hardware will have to encode the purchaser's PassKey (Last Name, SSN, etc.) into the Player. When digital media is purchased, the same will happen...the purchaser's PassKey will be encoded into the electronic Media. (Of course they may use their wife's/Friend's/Boss's PassKey if it is a gift.)
The Player will only play the media if the passkeys match. Of course there will be ways for pirate hackers to take a general media, pull the pass code out and insert another one... but if it is a complex enough system they won't want to spend their time working on a hack for weeks when they can just download the song or movie for $5. FileSwapping like Old Napster and Kazaa are then extinct.
If your HardwareKey fails.... go back to the retailer or manufacturer and have it reset or replaced. This is a fairly old idea in software. A Finite Element Analysis package for $15000 comes with a Hardware key. The Software periodically checks the serial port for the hardware key that came with the software...if it isn't there, it doesn't play. When will this technology catch on in entertainment??
Reward: A pat on the back.

Any Movie At Any Time Printer Friendly Version
We have cable/sat companies making money off of pay per view, so why don't they partner with a big movie rental company like blockbuster or netflix, so that we can have a broader range of movies to rent from our TV's? Wouldn't it be nice to think about a movie and then be able to watch it with the click of the remote?
Reward: A year of free movies.
