Crumb collector for laptops Printer Friendly Version
Lets face it - the vast majority of people I know eat while sitting in front of their laptops. Crumbs fall on the keyboard, some are removed, some disappear - but where to they go? I like to think that they are food for Tron and his friends, but I fear far worse things.
To solve the problem, why not invent a crumb collector for laptops? It works so beautifully with my toaster - pull out the tray, remove the crumbs, done. Why do we need to fiddle with brushes and pressure cleaners or even disassemble our devices? This can be made much easier.
Reward: A laptop with crumb collector

Mini Printer Printer Friendly Version
When one wants just one label or neat printing on a small piece of card or paper currently one has to print on a large sheet and then cut-away the unwanted paper. Have you ever tried to print on a post-it sheet, impossible.
So how about a small computer printer designed to allow one-off prints of small labels, cards etc., of a maximum size of say a post-it sheet. Not a feed-through type printer, but designed maybe so that you could place the card or slip of paper on the base of the printer and then the hinged printing mechanism is brought into contact with the card/paper. This would avoid the problem larger printers have with small pieces of paper/card being too small in size or too thick for the feed rollers. The printer need only be capable of black printing.
Reward: One of the final working products for free.

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
