Tires of Worn Out Shoes Printer Friendly Version
My idea involves the use of the countless number of worn out tires.
Imagine using tires to make shoes.
-First you would need a machine to break down the tires and pulverize them almost to a powder.
-Next you would need to mix this material with a resin so it can be heated, formed and become a solid mass.
-This mixture of rubber and resin could then be heated in a mold. The mold would have the shape of treads on the bottom, and be about a half inch high. Also it would be made in several different sizes to accomodate foot sizes.
-The formed sole would be cooled, then attached to the upper portion of the shoe.
-There is a lot of tires out there in the world and a lot of feet to cover. I believe the durability would be amazing as people don't walk have as far as a tire has to drive.

Old Sock Tester Printer Friendly Version
We all know how battery testers work: you find a battery in your home or office and have no clue if it's still usable. You attach it to a battery tester and voila - the battery is flat so you can happily dispose of it.
But on washing day, what are you to do if you find a couple of stray socks? Sure, you can smell every single one of them, but that isn't only unpleasant, but it can actually damage your health, e.g. if you're allergic to dust. Alternatively, you can throw everything you find into the washer, but that'll unnecessarily shorten the life-span of your clothers, plus, by washing stuff that's already clean you're not exactly doing a favor to our environment.
This is where the sock tester comes to play: scan the socks (or any other garment you may have found) with the sock tester, and the sock tester will tell you if they actually need a washing.
Reward: Free sock testers for me

An air-free bag Printer Friendly Version
What do you think will happen if you will have a bag which can be shrinked down to the size just enough for your things so that you don't need to bring those baggy bags to school. A very small space needed for your bag and a larger space to move on.
a great relief for me!!!!
(I wish that it will be made by NIKE or ADIDAS)
Reward: at least 3 shrink bags. 1 for me and 1 for each of my 2 friends
