Kids Compartments in Trains Printer Friendly Version
There are compartments for smokers and non-smokers, there are even women's compartments. Now, why aren't there any compartments for kids?
A lot of people (like myself) enjoy a peaceful train ride. They can do some work, read a book, or simply take a nap. However, all of this is suddenly over if a small child enters the place. I've experienced unbelievable scenes in the last years, including hours of hysterical screaming and provocative stomping around. One time I've even had a used diaper flung in my direction. The mother's only reaction was to be amused about how her little sweatheart had done the trick.
Now, the point is, I really don't care how other people bring up their kids. However, most PARENTS have bad manners and don't realize that not everything their little ones might be doing is necessarily a treat to everybody else. The easiest solution would be to create kids' compartments. Everyone would benefit, most of all the children who would get a chance to play with other kids during the train ride, which would make their trip much more enjoyable.
Reward: A free train ticket.

Magnetic transport Printer Friendly Version
Like magnetic poles repel each other, right?. What if we were to have pavements or "magnetic ways" that were the same magnetic pole as a magnetic skateboard. People will be able to hover and move by leaning forward and stop by leaning backwards.
No fuel or energy is consumed either. Surely we could use this concept for motor vehicles on highways?
Reward: I would like to be involved in the R&D if someone were to do this.

Commercial flight guidance Printer Friendly Version
How about a device that could take control of a airliner like a heat seeking or guided missile. In the event of a hijacking military jets could be deployed taking control of the jet and forcing it to land safely, brake and shut down.
Reward: no more 9/11
