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.

Cell Phone Light Printer Friendly Version
How about a light as an accessory on a cell phone. You would press a button on the side of the phone and the light would go on, thereby allowing you to read a menu, a show program, or see your key hole at home or at your car in the dark. I know that many cell phones have "lighted" faces, but it's not enough light and is not easy to direct it to an area to help you see in the dark. This light would run on the cell telephone battery. This would be a very simple addition, and would be very helpful.
Reward: a free telephone with this device added for me and my family members
