The handheld scanner will be used to detect intracranial bleeding on the spot, quickly identifying people who may need follow up treatment or diagnosis. The wand-like device will take advantage of near-infrared technology to determine any abnormalities in the brain's light absorption. Using an eye-safe NIR diode laser and an optical detector, the scanner will measure the light absorption of both halves of the brain. A lack of symmetry will indicate a likely hematoma caused by the...

The air umbrella will keep the user dry without any canvas or fabric at all. The umbrella will feature a single plastic stick and no moving parts. Air will be sucked through the bottom of the stick's handle and will be expelled forcibly through the top to create a canopy of rain-deflecting air. The size of the air canopy can be modified by the user, and the handle of the air umbrella can also be lengthened or shortened as needed.

The new prosthetic eye will be able to send digital information directly to the nerve cells, allowing a blind patient to read Braille patterns without needing to touch the page. The prosthetic eye will feature a small, glasses-mounted camera, a portable processor and a microchip with electrodes implanted on the retina. The processor will translate the images collected by the camera to electrical signals, which will then be used to stimulate patterns on the nerve cells. With...

The idea is to develop a vest that can rapidly cool patients suffering from cardiac arrest, helping to reduce the risk of brain damage. It is a long-known fact that cooling the body quickly helps to protect the brain against oxygen deficiency during times of reduced blood flow. The vest will be cooled by the release of zeolite into the water-filled cooling pads. The zeolite will instantly cool the water down to nearly freezing, which will help to drain the body temperature to a...

The new system will help absent-minded parents remember not to leave their child in their car. It will include a pad that will slip into the child's safety seat and an alarm unit that will fit on a key ring. The system will activate when the child in placed in the safety seat, and will sound an alarm if the caregiver walks more than 15 feet from the occupied safety seat. It is supposed that the system will significantly reduce the actual, though slight, chance of a sleeping...

The Scrubba wash bag is a portable washing machine, weighing just over 6 ounces and able to wash several items of clothing at once. The Scrubba is basically a washboard in a bag. To use the Scrubba, the bag is filled with about 3 liters of water and 3 drops of soap per wash, sealed, and the extra air expelled through a tube. The washbag is then placed on a table or the floor and compressed and rubbed for about a minute, which scrubs the clothes with the interior washboard. Clothes...

The new wall outlet allows users to charge USB devices directly from the wall, without the need to plug into a computer and cause desk clutter. The outlet is easy to install, and can replace an existing outlet on a 15-Amp circuit. All four ports can be used simultaneously, and a built in power saving feature will deliver only as much power to the USB ports as needed by the USB device. A shutter automatically closes over the USB port when it is not in use, protecting the port...

Space is an issue for any backpacker. Why not create camp shoes that can make the most of limited space, zipping into themselves and reducing their size by half? The shoes will be made of a lightweight ripstop fabric and will be lined with a fleece-lined footbed that will be removed for cleaning. The outsoles will be made of 42 percent recycled rubber, which will provide a non-slip surface for walking around the campsite. The camp shoes can be attached to the outside of a...

The idea is to develop a water reclamation system that will recycle bathroom sink water to use for flushing the toilet, which could save up to 6000 gallons of water each year. The system will consist of a box under the sink that can hold up to 5.5 gallons of used sink water and a pump which will transfer the grey water to the toilet's water supply. Such a system is supposed to save up to 65% of potable water per flush.

The idea is to create a device that will be attached to night-vision devices, adding the ability to see thermal signals. The device will allow the wearer to see in total darkness and will not be affected by snow, rain, or other conditions which conventional devices still struggle. The device will even be able to detect the thermal traces of a recently occupied room or vehicle, hand and footprints invisible to the naked eye, and recently disturbed ground that could indicate a...
