Future speed limits Printer Friendly Version
People speed, we all do it but we know its wrong. Every act we take in life has consequences and we shouldn't get away with speeding.
When you purchase a vehicle you have to give your credit card information just like when you register a new phone. Newer cars all come with GPS that can calculate your exact speed. If you decide to speed you are automatically charged 1 cent / second times KM/h over the limit you are. For example if you are driving 10Km/h over the limit you are charged 10cents /second. $6/min.
Cuts cost to tax payers in the form of additional police officers needed and radar equipment / definitely safer / could reduce accidents? In emergency situations where you need to speed (should be never) you will automatically accept the additional cost.
I thought of this when thinking about the future of autonomous vehicles that will eventually drive us around and this type of thing won't be necessary. However, while autonomous vehicles will be automatically going the speed limit, people who do not wish to adopt this technology will continue to drive above the speed limit, putting everyone else in danger. This type of penalty could positively influence these people to adopt autonomous technology if its not made mandatory in the first place.
What do you think? I understand there would be colossal cost to implement this but I am thinking 10 -20 years down the road (pun) when technology has progressed.

A cool hat Printer Friendly Version
what if there was a hat/ beanie that would have a kin of mp3 that would read a card with music on it? you would not have the problem with fussing with the cords of the earphones! also, it could have a headlight put into it. if that isn't all it once turned on it would activate a ear piercing sound only heard by dogs! perfect for morning joggers!
Reward: another one out of my mind...

Do-It-All Credit Card Razor Switch Blade Knife Printer Friendly Version
Just imagine the thousands of uses a handy pocket sized razor knife would have if you could simply put it in your pocket or fit it into your wallet. A knife that could easily be hidden and no one would know that you have it on you. A self defense mechanism or a tool with many uses. Handy on hiking trips, hunting, car repairs or cutting anything at all. It could even be a serated edged knife for handy sawing action. It could serve with many components of a Swiss Army knife if you only fit it into the size and shape of a credit card. It could even have a magnifying glass or a night light in it. You could potentially miniturize anything and put it into this credit card shaped and sized card. With this handy do it all you can pull it out in seconds or have several on hand for different uses.
Reward: Credit
