PDA / Phone / Wallet Hybrid Printer Friendly Version
There is a lot of talk lately of merging cell phones and PDAs (Palms, portable computers). This is sensible in that you can select an address from your PDA and just call it, rather than carry two devices around. But you're still carrying at least one extra device, that you can drop, break, lose, get wet, etc.
My idea is to merge cell phones and PDAs with something we carry with us anyway -- the wallet. If you open a trifold wallet, you can see that it is an ideal screen space for a PDA, and would be comfortable held to your ear.
It would need a mechanism, such as a zipper, to keep money from falling out during use. This could be coupled with a security feature, such as a password, if you wanted to get detailed. Of course, what would be needed would be a very thin screen to overlay on a standard folding wallet and not make it bulky.
As far as I know, this is a completely original, and exciting, idea.
Reward: A free one would be more than enough payment. :)

"Bet and Win" Fund Printer Friendly Version
Betting on sport events is somehow similar to stock trading: Complete amateurs can lose a lot of money, but for the expert, it's a serious source of income.
Because picking the right stocks can be tricky, a lot of people choose to buy fund shares and have an expert take care of their money. The obvious advantage is that someone can work on the stocks full-time, and due to the large amounts of money involved, any transaction generating even a small percentage is worthwhile.
I am sure that a true sports expert could do a similar job by placing money on sports bets: With enough time and experience, it would be possible to determine which bets - compared with the risk - have the best odds, and dividing the risk among many bets, the flow of profits could be rather continuous.
Reward: Consider me as a fund manager.

Auto Shut Off AC/DC Transformer Printer Friendly Version
This can work for any kind of charger, or transformer. Using the proper circuitry the charger turns off the transformer in order to radically diminish the consumption of energy when there is no device connected to it. How many chargers do you have constantly connected to the wall waisting electricity. All chargers by law should have this capability.
Reward: Saving electricity and money, making a cleaner planet
