Electronic Braille Book Printer Friendly Version
An electronic device that allows books from the internet to be downloaded onto a portable electronic Braille book. This device could be hand held and consist of a series of small pins that go up and down to form all the letters of the Braille alphabet. Thus blind people could also read whilst they're sitting on the train.
Reward: Teach me how to read braille!!!

Improved DVD or CD Printer Friendly Version
I know DVD readers use a laser to sense minute fluctuations on the disk to transfer them electronically into a signal. So my idea is to have multiple layers on each side of the disk. You would then have to have a reader which knew which layer it was reading and could avoid the signal from the others. You would also have to have a disk made to where the actual fluctuations on the disk could be picked up by the laser, or could be looked through so to speak to the other layers. For instance have the marks about a quarter the width so the laser can still see it, but it also still has three quarters of the laser looking beyond. Some DVDs can hold about 7 gigabytes of information. With both sides having multiple readable layers, there is no telling how much information you could store on one disk depending on the layers. You could then store almost every song you have on a cd on one disk, or store multiple movies on on DVD. I am no engineer, but it seems plausible considering our technology abilities.

USB zip drives for any device Printer Friendly Version
Ok so USB zip drives were invented for use with computers, right? And they have recently been introduced to work with mp3 players, so my idea is a simple one and that is to incorporate the USB drive into VCRs and DVD players or even TVs. How easy would it be to upload pictures/movies onto the USB card and then simply put it into the TV, VCR or DVD player to watch? It would be very easy to transport your movies via your lightweight portable USB Cards instead of CDs and VHS tapes.
Reward: Credit, actual products.
