Smart Alarm Clock Printer Friendly Version
Some people do not have 9 to 5pm Monday through Thursday work and/or school schedules. These people may have schedules in which on every Monday and Wednesday they have to wake up at 7 am, while on Tuesdays and Thursdays they wake up a 9 am. Other people may go to work for four days during the night, and then four days during the day. These people could use an alarm clock that can be preprogrammed to go off the time and days it should go off. They would input their schedule into the alarm clock, so it would know when to go off for up to a year. This initially long setting would save the person from everyday they have to change or set their alarm clocks. This would work great for all people, especially college students and people with odd schedules.

Liquid Contacts Printer Friendly Version
Tired of wearing glasses and looking like a geek but too scared to wear contacts? Tired of losing contacts, or can't wear contacts because of dry eyes? Well, liquid contacts would supposedly take care of that. If you had a bottle filled with your perscription, and then (being a 1 drop at a time controlled squeeze bottle) drop 1 drop in each eye. In 2 minutes, the contact either hardens, or maybe it just works as a liquid. No hassle with getting them in or out. After a certain number of hours, (strength varies by price?) the contact would dissolve and be useless. You wouldn't have to take it out and it would be real easy to put in. Having all the social stuff you have to deal with in school, I hate wearing glasses, but contacts are uncomfortable and annoying to put in.
Reward: Lifetime supply

Thumb drive notification when you try to log out Printer Friendly Version
I've done it before, and I imagine you might have too. You plug in your USB drive into the USB port and open up your work, spend ages working on it, save. Log out. Walk away.
...which is fine, if you're at home. But I'm a school student, and a number of times I have left my thumb drive in a school computer, or seen it happen to other people. Sometimes, you get it back. Other students are not so honest.
The problem is, if you lose the USB drive, you use the work on it as well, either temporarily or permanently. The logical thing to do would be to back it up, but we're not perfect, and I (and probably others) never do.
I have seen programs (although I've never used them) that display a warning when you power off your computer/put it into standby, telling you that your USB drive is still in the computer. However, there are two problems with this (for my intended use, anyway):
1. At school (I'm a student) we don't turn off the computers at the end of each class. Instead, we simply log off so the next person may use the computer. The warning would never appear.
2. From what I've seen, these programs are installed on the computer itself, rather than being stored on the USB drive. We have over 100 computers and you can never be sure which one you're going to be using. Clearly the program needs to be stored on the USB drive, NOT the computer you plug it into.
So, what I'm suggesting: A small program that runs from your USB drive and, when it is still plugged into the computer and you try to log off, it displays a notification something along the lines of, "Wait a minute, don't leave me behind!"
(If anybody know of something like this, PLEASE let me know!)
Reward: Free use of this program and clear instructions on how to make it work if it's not just a simple app.
