Sloping roads before checkpoints Printer Friendly Version
Before checkpoints, there's usually a traffic jam. People stop their engines, then after a few minutes, they start them, drive a few feet, and turn them off again. Or they keep the car running all the time.
My idea is to build in a slight gradient before checkpoints and other places that are known to cause traffic congestions. People can turn off their engines, and if the traffic moves on a tiny bit, they can simply loosen their handbrakes without starting the motor.
Of course it will cost a lot of energy to build the gradient, but in the long run, it should definitely pay off. Also, when building new checkpoints, the natural fall of the landscape might be considered.
Reward: The permission to drive by without having to wait in the line at all.

The Aero Seat Printer Friendly Version
Have you ever seen those beds on T.V. that take your shape and it feels like you're sleeping on a cloud. Well I had the idea of putting that material onto a baby seat. I'm just curious would any of you buy my product?

Mechanism to capture license plate numbers Printer Friendly Version
Accidents do happen everywhere and on the Indian highways most of them are hit and run cases where the victim is left at the mercy of any passerby for any help. And many a times the culprits go scot-free because no one noted the license plate number.
Given that there are many processors in modern automobiles, a mechanism could be developed such that the bumpers of the automobiles have 2 port, an input and output port. On the output port the license number of that automobile is constantly advertized. The input port is constantly monitored for the license number of any other automobile which comes in contact. This number could be stored on a EPROM which is located in a relatively safer place of the automobile. With this mechanism not only the culprits of hit and run case could be found but also of that idoit who damaged your car in the parking lot.
Reward: Such a mechanism on my car
