GPS Shock Collar System Printer Friendly Version
Purpose: To eliminate the need for fences to manage livestock.

Levels:
Level 1: A shock collar with a remote receiver that can be use to remotely control shocking of the wearer. Shock is administered by a capacitive device and on-board battery for charging.
Level 2: Add a transmitter to sense the livestock's temperature (to know the animal is alive) and to indicate battery charge state.
Level 3: Add a GPS monitoring system to transmit Lat/Long location codes when requested.
Level 4: Add software and PC card/remote receiver/transmitter to allow monitoring of multiple collars to track locations of wearers.
Level 5: Add software on collar to allow the user to program boundary corners by moving the collar to each corner of the desired enclosure and pressing a button on the collar to enter the lat/long into a corner list. The collar can then use this information with an onboard computer system to determine at periodic intervals (also programmable) if the collar is in or outside the boundary specified. If the condition is not desired (in or out) then a shock is administered by the collar. Shocks will also transmit a code so that the monitoring station can set off an alarm to alert the rancher that the battery may soon go dead and that an animal is outside its boundary.
Level 6: Add remote software that can reprogram the collars so that boundaries can be dynamically moved from a central location (your PC). Software can be developed to slowly move the boundaries over time to literally herd the animals to or from a desired location.

Usage:
With all these features and some training it should be possible to do ranch work entirely from you PC and remove the need for fencing entirely.

Potential: The market for this should be huge and it would revolutionize ranching. RFID chips could also become integrated into this technology.
Reward: If you ever get these collars made - just let me have free use of this on my own ranch.

Robotic Visual Object Recognition Printer Friendly Version
I would like to see a small robot with wheels that had a camera. The camera would come accompanied by object recognition software. It would have some sort of small weapon that could kill various kinds of insects. You could program in ants or cockroaches and the machine would roll around the house or hunting down the insects for you automatically.
Reward: A free robot or help determining the name of the product.

Open Source P2P Adsense Printer Friendly Version
It seems that currently internet advertising is moving into a new phase, called content sensitive advertising. Google is the main contender in this field with its adsense and adwords.
In another unrelated area of the net, Open Source is growing very fast, and in the 3rd corner is Peer 2 Peer software (or shared computing).
What makes adsense work so well is the amount of people that use it, and the google name behind it makes it better.
Think what would happen if a lot of small websites were to offer services like adsense... They would not work. But if they were to join in colaboration, developing open source adsense like software, they could be a step better.
To really compete, the little players need to work together have the advertising network built over p2p so all the players work in colaboration.
The network could be built on trust. So you trust your advertising partners, and they trust theirs etc. etc.
If any one wants to grab this idea and start running, I will gladly be a part of it (not that this is a requirement).
The only reason that I am submitting this idea, is that without the power of open source, little me can not compete with the google giant.
Reward: Money, Glory, Fame, Top geek status
