"Two angles - two programs" TV screen Printer Friendly Version
I wonder why so many ideas are about inventing the perfect TV...
Anyway, here's another one. ;) You probably know those postcards where you can flip the card and suddenly you see a different image. I've also seem money machines where the screen will turn black when you're standing just a few degrees away from the center of the screen.
Why not combine both, and invent a TV screen that will show two or even three different programs depending on your viewing angle?
Ever noticed that when you go to a pub to watch football, there are only men watching? Solve the problem by showing the shopping channel or the Chippendales on the same screen, just from a diffent angle. Ever had discussions in your family about what program to watch? No big deal! The smaller kids (who are sitting on the floor) can watch Disney, while mom (or dad), who is busy ironing, can see her favorite soap opera on the same screen.
Reward: Such a TV for free.

Green card Printer Friendly Version
An idea for retail shops to half their carbon foot print would be to get rid of all receipts, this can be done by using a swipe card similar to the club card where the receipts are stored on the card at the checkout. Then through a mobile device connected to a pc you can list all receipts in a word document that can be printed when needed. Also the customer can access there receipt via the shops website using a password.
Reward: To help the enviroment and save trees

OS Card Printer Friendly Version
The "OS Card" would be a independant operating system that is installed or flashed onto a PCI-E card for computers.
A entire operating system such as Windows would come on one of these cards. Instead of booting and running your OS from your local hard drive, it would run most of the OS from the PCI-E card.
The card would be read only, protecting vital system files from malware such as trojans or viruses. A small number of system files that would require read and write functions would be copied to your local hard drive where they could be modified and read by the card.
What would this do? For starters it would make installing an operting system much easier. Instead of having to deal with CDs, DVDs and serial numbers a person would simply buy the card and put it in their computer.
I also believe that this would also put a serious dent in piracy of operating systems. Furthermore, it would free up a considerable amount of space on your hard drive. I also feel that it may even speed up system processes.
The OS Card could come with it's own independent CPU and Memory (RAM), which would completely remove the need for an operating system's system requirements. This would most likely speed up all other processes and events being run on the computer now that system processes are now no longer hogging PC resources.
Reward: A free OS Card
