Where should we go mobile application Printer Friendly Version
Imagine this, you find yourself in town with friends without any planning and the question gets asked "whats on tonight, where shall we go".
How about a mobile phone application that uses your GPS information in conjunction with event info posted on the web and suggests events or locations you might wish to go to based on the user selecting an activity type.
For example, we decide we want to go and eat Chinese, then onto a bar to see a live band playing hard rock. The app scours the restaurant / gig guides on line and gives you options based on your physical location and the type of activity you select. It doesn't just serve up a gig or restaurant guide, but selects appropriate ones based on descriptive metrics and your current location and the time. Particularly useful if you're not in your home town.
Reward: Advice about a good Chinese restaurant and hard rock gig in my present location...

TRADE Translation Device Printer Friendly Version
Often in our lives we have noticed that communication is very important to human life, but it is a problem between people who speak different languages. This invention, if developed, will create a solution to that problem. Now we present you with a solution. TRADE – Translator device.
We want to describe the parts that are in this invention:
1) Processor: The processor is very complex. It has many functions. First, it translates what you are saying to the person who is talking to you; second it grabs the information that the receptor grabs and translates back to you. There is a small speaker on the processor, but it is loud enough for the person to hear it. It also has a cell phone plug, where you plug the cell phone and it works just like you are talking in person. There are several chips that come with the processor, one for each language; you just have to attach the chip to the processor when you will speak. It also comes with a small briefcase where you would be able to keep all the parts together.
2) Multi-shaped Receptor: The function of the receptor would be to grab whatever the person (who is talking to you) is saying and automatically transfer to the processor. The processor would translate the information to your language and you would hear what the person is saying right away. When you order the receptor you can choose the most convenient shape for you. These are some examples of receptor:
3) Wireless Earpiece: The earpiece would be used for you to hear the translation of what the person is saying.
The major thing about TRADE is that it can be used by anyone from all over the world. You don't have to be a special agent or someone from U.N., you can only be yourself just trying to know the world better!
After we have thought of this invention, we had chosen an appropriate reward. It is a sample of the invention.
Reward: a sample

Choose your path/ interactive history book Printer Friendly Version
Always loved the "Choose your own adventure" books. Very much fiction but I thought it would be great to have a book with the same format but your decisions/choices would be ones that our world leaders are currently faced with, were faced with and the book would lead you to a path that was exactly what had happened or something totally different as a result of not choosing the choices that actually were made from these power figures.
Or if you chose a different path what may have happened as a result?
Think about it. What if Hitler was shot, what if the bomb was not dropped on Hiroshima, what if Abe Lincoln had not signed the Emancipation Procalamation?, what if a decision made resulting in the South winning the War?
Would the world come to an end? Would there be a different world power, what if Castor was succesfully killed during the Bay of pigs invasion? etc. etc. This could be applied to so many world (past and present) decision making points that could really have changed or will change our way of life.
Reward: Not sure but would love to read them
