New telephone Printer Friendly Version
I think there may be a telephone with a scent emitter. The emitter contains a lot of scent of flowers, and on the screen of the telephone, we can find a list of scent.
You can set the telephone number to the list. For example, the number of your girlfriend ok! certainly the scent of rose or other scent of flower what she like; if your classmates maybe the scent of lily, and so on...
Then when you hear the calls, if you feel the scent of rose, ok it's her, no doubt! I think this idea will make our room more comfortable and make your talk more brighten!
Also it can be used in mobile telephone.
Reward: If there is any technique problem now; we can start this from the sound of call. But this is not a good idea for mobile telephone!

Freestanding indoor playgrounds with snacks Printer Friendly Version
Many fast food restaurants have done pretty well with attached indoor playgrounds. However, some of us prefer not to feed our kids junk food every time we need some indoor playspace. There are plenty of structured or semi-structured gyms and such for children, but very few indoor playgrounds for simple, active freeplay.
So here's the idea: have a playground indoors. Have an all-you can eat snack bar that is filled with only simple, healthy foods. Charge admission.
The basic playground ideas can be found anywhere. Just put it inside so it can be used whatever the weather. Use sound absorbing design and materials so the happy voices of many children will not echo and make the space unbearably loud.
The snack bar should be simple, healthy items: carrot sticks, apple slices, cheese cubes, etc. Besides any desire for "healthy" food, this would allow people with food allergies to easily find something they can eat. And children will happily eat fruit and vegetables when they are not competing with french fries. Organic and/or local food would be even better. It would probably work out best if snacks are in individual kid-sized cups (perhaps 1/2 cup), rather than expecting harried parents and klutzy kids to deal with tongs and plates. Avoid extremely messy and/or allergenic items, like peanut butter.
There should be enough staffmembers on hand to keep the playground clean, the snackbar stocked, and maybe pass out bandaids if needed. Children are not admitted without a supervising adult. This is a playspace, not a drop-in childcare facility.
Have plenty of tables and benches for supervising adults to sit. This is a space where parents can relax, socialize, do paperwork, whatever, while keeping an eye on their children.
Don't forget the little stuff. Have a nice bathroom, with toilets and sinks of various sizes. Have a comfortable nursing area. A small padded romping area for infants and young toddlers might be nice.
If you wanted to get even more elaborate, a separate quiet room for older kids and teens to play boardgames or do homework without interference by pesky younger siblings.
Reward: Build one in Seattle, preferably in the downtown area! I'll happily pay admission. If this idea was supporting sustainable agriculture (local and/or organic), that would also be a lovely reward.

Portable Night Light Toys Printer Friendly Version
Toys instead of plug in devices to light the room. The child can take the light with them anywhere, even under the covers, to grandmas house and sleep-overs. The whole toy can light up and be an animal or anything imagined that a child would like to be with or grow-up with. What ever they want in a portable night light toy. They can even collect them! All different colors and shapes. They can come in with switches to change the range of light from bright to low light. Maybe even, eventually, make glow in the darm pillows or bedding to go with all those stars and moblies and glowing toys. Battery operated or glow in the dark. Imagine a glow in the dark toy with a switch to go from low to bright light. It has never been done. You could do it with a fluid filled glow in the dark bear and batteries. Plush toys or soft pastic and plush. If I was a child, I wouldn't want the night light in the dangerous outlet away from me, I would want it under the covers with me safe away from all the nightmares and monsters of the World outside the bed covers where I could be protected by it and have it as a friend to hug.
Reward: Credit
