SolarTech Printer Friendly Version
The SolarTech is a solar satellite aimed at the sun 24/7 much like a tv or radio satellite. It works by sending radio signals to a receiver. It picks up the signal and makes the (car, house, computer, ANYTHING WITH THE RECIEVER WORK). And could take over gas, electric, nuclear, batteries, etc. And nobody would ever need those things again
Reward: STOP pollution, no need for gas, electric, nuclear, or any other power.

Pedestrian Power Printer Friendly Version
To place devices that gain energy under pressure under paving tiles that is linked to an energy plant. Thus creating a brand new energy source proportional to the amount of shopping we do and saving the environment at the same time.
Reward: Just to see them in use would be cool

Reduce Polution & The Ozone Holes Printer Friendly Version
One major component of air pollution is ozone. A major problem with our atmosphere is the existence of several "holes" in the Ozone Layer.
My idea is based on the fact that a toroid, or doughnut-shaped fluid mass is self-sustaining. A good example of this is a smoke ring. Someone puffs smoke through their "Oh" -shaped lips and the ring (toroid) moves through the air without losing its shape or contents. On a larger scale, years ago, cigarettes were advertised from outdoor signs by blowing smoke rings on a grand scale from the lips of a person painted on the billboard.
I suggest that, in high pollution areas, we build toroid generators; tall chimneys with "puffing" devices at their base which will draw in the heavily-polluted, high ozone air and literally "puff" the ozone into the upper atmosphere.
I see several problems with this suggestion, so let me point them out before someone else does. First, and foremost, winds will affect the distance the toroid will ascend without losing its shape and coming apart. The flip side of this problem is the fact that if there was very much wind, there wouldn't be much of an accumulation of ozone at ground level. The second problem is upper atmosphere winds. Frankly, I can't think of any way around those. But I'm open for suggestions. Finally, is the technological challenge of devising a toroid generator of sufficient power to send the ozone into the upper atmosphere. I suggest that heating the pollution might increase its tendency to rise and a slightly cone-shaped chimney would increase the velocity.
Reward: If someone actually develops something based on my idea, I'd only ask that they build one in my home town of Baton Rouge, LA - a high-ozone area.
