Snooze Proof Alarm Printer Friendly Version
An alarm clock that has a snooze-proof alarm feature. In other words, an alarm that prevents the consumer from constantly hitting the snooze while half asleep. (I have, at times, hit the snooze every 4 minutes for 2 hours before I eventually got up!). The Snooze Proof Alarm would be able to act like a normal alarm clock w/ snooze, but also have snooze proof alarm features. One aspect of the snooze proof alarm would be the ability to make the snooze button inactive. But, to prevent people from just turning off the alarm entirely, the user must solve a simple puzzle (or enter a code into a lock) that would require that the user is awake and not half asleep. Some ideas for the code/puzzle: a simple visual-spatial puzzle, or a pre-programmed question (set by the user) that must be answered before the alarm can be set off. In the last example, the user can define what kind of question he/she would like. Thus, he/she might tell the alarm to ask "What is 85 +72?" and only the required answer would turn off the alarm. Or, the user could input "What is the capital of your homestate?" and they'd have to then input the answer, which they could pre-program to whatever they want. Actually, whatever unlocks the turn off alarm mode could be whatever... whatever works best.
Reward: I'd like one of the finished products for free. Also, please don't claim that you thought up the idea. Just say what you did... made the idea reality, and marketed, sold and made a buisness out of it. Thanks.

Window-Free House Printer Friendly Version
After replacing the windows in the house I rent out for the 2nd time, it occurred to me that there is really no longer a need for the windows to be there. With the modern technology we possess today, we could devise a flat screen video projector for the inside of the house, a mini-camera (weather-proof of course), for the outside, and a small central computer processor to organize it all. In this way you could control what images you see when you are sitting in a room, or entertaining.
It would also help with air conditioning (less heat loss, less sunshine to heat up curtains, floors, etc.), and heat. And with the computer controls, if it's raining and nasty out, just turn to the daffadills and gently rolling stream program, or whatever your choice may be. If you wish to see what is going on outside, turn it to standard operation. I would recommend an alternate emergency escape in the event of fire or other emergency.
Reward: give one to me to install in my home.

Protect Copyrighted CDs/DVDs Printer Friendly Version
CDs and DVDs that have a small re-writable part to write serial numbers for each customer, you could even make that a critical component of the program that would be encrypted. You could decrypt the CD/DVD with the serial number. This could also be incorporated to prevent unauthorized copying, which can be done with that current discs with many different programs.
Reward: one please
