Ecological home for cold areas Printer Friendly Version
Why not build a house that uses ground and snow as isolation?
The house could have 3 sloped sides going to ground level and there if it is helpful could be roof covered air pockets between underground wall and ground. One side would be mostly glass. During winter the snow would help insulate most of the building (as there are no walls except the glass wall letting light and warmth in). Rainwater could be collected and used (by dehydration) in summer to cool the building. Air would need to be circulated from high point of the building to low point of the building. The roof could be "ground" roof.
Reward: Live a month in one.

"Leave-up" Holiday Christmas lights Printer Friendly Version
Here's what I would love if someone would create... Christmas lights that can be left up all year without making you look like the problem neighbor.
I'm thinking of a thin housing or tube that blends seamlessly with the gutters on your house. The housing would appear white when the lights were off, but would be transparent enough to see the lights through when they were turned on. Of course, the lights would have to be reliable so you don't lose strings here and there and have to climb up every year anyway.
They would clip to gutters and be inflexible enough that they would look like part of the gutter (not flexible like rope light, which would sag over time).
Other styles that blend with roof shingles would also be cool so you could have lights on the top of the roof too. But starting with white to blend with gutters would seem the easiest place to start.
Reward: I would love to have these installed on my house!!

Pests controller Printer Friendly Version
We are fond of flies, cockroaches and other insects which keep distrubing in life.
I have an idea for it - we have seen electric flies control all around which is connected to electricity when connected it will burn of. The idea is to have
laser sensors at the entrance of the house or restraurant which are not harmful to humans.
So by putting it in the entrance when the laser hits the insects, it dies. So easy measure to control pests and insects.
