Full Light Range Cameras Printer Friendly Version
All cameras have a limited amount of defintion, clarity, and details in images, due to the fact that definition in different light ranges disappear when in bright or dim light. In dim light all bright definition is lost and in bright light you can't see any defintion in the dark areas. I propose that we create cameras (still or movie) that can capture all definition, clarity, and details in all light ranges and conditions (dark, mid-range, and bright). This would beat plasma screens in resolution and even beat the details picked up and captured by the human eye even with the best vision.
This full light range capture is easy to produce. All cameras are now computerized with Charged Coupled Devices (computer chips) to capture light, details, resolution, clarity, and details instead of mechanical parts of the older type cameras of the past but, the image is captured by only one chip. If we add three of these CCD chips (one for each light range) then we cature the entire image instead of just one light range. Right now your most current technologically advanced cameras capture one range at a time. I did research with camera companies and they are only working on resolution and not light ranges. In other words they are not addressing this issue directly.

Electronic cable labeller Printer Friendly Version
I've been looking everywhere for a very simple, cheap but ingenious device that prints labels for electrical/electronic cords and cables.
How many of us who have multiple electric/electronic/computing devices have coils of cables with various ends that we don't know how to organize while they aren't being used? One particular beef is the power-supply bricks that always seem to get separated from their device. They are rarely labelled and you end up having two or three hanging around but have no idea what device they were used to power -- and plugging in the wrong adapter could fry a device if it's the wrong one.
I was thinking of something resembling a stapler, except it would be "filled" with white flexible plastic tape that somehow one could enter a name onto -- say, "USB to iPad Mini" and then clamp it around the cord somehow and it would produce a tag with the words "USB to iPad Mini" on both sides. It would have to be durable but not too wide -- in other words, about half the width of Scotch tape. It would be white or colored, depending on the "cartridge" or whatever you use to attach the tape, and there would have to be some way of inputting the text. The tags themselves could be as long or as short as you wanted, depending on the descriptions; thus, you could have a tag that said "Firewire to Thunderbolt for Canon Elura 100" or in the case of a power brick, "Power supply for label printer."
At the moment what I'm doing is using a Dymo label printer to print out the text and then, because the tape is inexplicable clear, attaching it to label paper, then cutting that out to make a tag, then attaching it to the cord -- very tedious and laborious work if you have 100 cords to do.
I have never seen anything like this anywhere. The only reward I would want is to have one for my personal use! I myself have no electronics knowledge or inventor skills whatsoever. Perhaps you could suggest a DIY hack that would at least reduce the work to a quick under-a-minute process? And something SIMPLE -- I don't need to be able to select among 20 fonts or tape widths.
Reward: Have one of these made for me for free!

Battery Powered Pocket Cigarette Lighter Printer Friendly Version
This lighter would heat with a couple double AA batteries exactly like an auto mobile electrical jack lighter that we all plug into our cell phones into nowadays to charge them. The hot spot would be contained within the center of coils so that the heat would disappear quickly, come with its own lid and only be hot when you pull the trigger to heat the element in the center. You would always know whose lighter it is since you would never change anything but the batteries and it could be personalized in any way so that you don't accidentially grab a lighter that's dead (or some one else's lighter), and the battery meter could easily be placed on the outside so that you can tell when it is a good lighter that will light.
Reward: One in all designs!
