The extender Printer Friendly Version
This is an extension for a pusher handlebar. It will save the backs of tall caretakers and caretakers who use a "buggy-board" (a skateboard for a toddler that clicks onto a stroller for when you have a second child, the toddler rides on the board in front of the mothers feet). It needs to fit a variety of handlebars of different brands (needs to slide out to different sizes and have attachments that fit a range of handlebar sizes), needs to be lightweight (so as not to affect the stability), needs to be sturdy (to go up sidewalks the mother must be able to lean on it and lift the front of the stroller), must be easy to take off (so you can still fold the stroller).
Reward: I would love to have one for our pram, please!

Highly Configurable Wheeled Carrying Device Printer Friendly Version
I would like a cart that I can use both on the bus and as a trailer behind my bike. In thinking about this it occurred to me that one could make several different kinds of carrying devices from a few different pieces that could be configured into different frames to support different fabric carriers. Such a device could be configured to make not just a cart and bike trailer, but a stroller, hand cart, dolly, sled and more. Some fabric carriers could be made to be used with more than one frame configuration.
The frame pieces would be made of steel tubing, like round metal conduit pipe. I imagine two rectangular pieces with rounded corners and two long and four short straight pieces. The straight pieces would connect to the rectangular pieces and each other with a joint. The joint, made of molded ABS plastic would be two pieces that would be screwed together onto a piece. Something similar to this would be used to attach wheels and swiveling wheels (a must for a cart) or other attachments such as sled runners or even a motorized stair climber (I would really like this attachment). A pin would extend out from the piece into the joint (or wheel base) to keep it from rotating or sliding. The joint would allow the ends of pieces to fit into it securely at three different angles. Pieces would lock into the joint when a pin near the end of the piece would expand into place in the joint. A means of releasing the pin would be incorporated into the joint.
The fabric carriers would slide onto or velcro around the pieces before the structure is configured. After all the pieces are locked into place the device would be ready to use.
Reward: A free or significantly discounted one.

GPS Shirts & License Plates Printer Friendly Version
I'm sure this has happened to others as well: You're in an unknown neighborhood, basically lost, but there are a few cars, bikes or even pedestrians around who seem to know where THEY are going. If one of them had the same goal as you, you could simply follow them. But then, how would you know...?
Here's where GPS shirts and license plates come to play. The license plate idea is kind of easier to implement: This would be a display beside your actual license plate which is attached to your real GPS in the car, and so the folks behind you can see where you're going.
The shirt would work similarly, with the place you're heading to displayed on the back of the shirt (either automatically via GPS, or to be inserted manually). Of course, it is nice to imagine this idea in an analogous and visual way - nowadays, however, you'd be more likely to implement it virtually: Create an app, have people enter their routes, and off you go.
Reward: One of those.
