The idea is to create a film for food packaging that will change color to indicate if the food inside is spoiled. The film will change from yellow to blue in the presence of biogneic amines- the molecules that are produced when food spoils.

My idea is to use the same clay ingredient as in bricks to create a packaging that can help foods stay fresh longer. The new film will be made up of 70% montmorillonite clay, with a structure similar to conventional bricks and mortar. Conventional packaging could be sprayed with or dipped in the film, creating a layer less than 100 nanometers thick. This extremely fine layer will be 100 times more resistant to penetration by oxygen than the current silicon oxide films.

Wine bottles made from a paper based glass will cost less to produce than conventional glass and will have only 10 percent the carbon footprint. The paper wine bottles will weigh only 50 grams, instead of the 500 grams of a standard wine bottle. Its shape and dimensions will be the same, however, so it can be easily integrated into existing displays. The wine itself will be contained within a foil bladder similar to a wine box. The paper wine bottles could be useful for...

The creation of antibacterial paper has been attempted before, but this method seems to be the most effective. Why not create food packaging impregnated with silver nanoparticles? This will kill bacteria and help prevent food from spoiling.

The idea is to create little stickers that will be stuck to each grocery store item and will then dissolve into an organic soap. The sticker will dissolve with water into a natural soap that will help to wash away pesticides, wax, bacteria, and dirt. The labels will still display the same PLU codes and other information as their less soapy contemporaries.

Most people think that cooking a perfect hard-boiled egg is a chance-by-chance situation. Sometimes you do it right, sometimes you don't. To succeed you just need the perfect technique, which is detailed below: 1. Wait for the eggs to be old enough for peeling. Young eggs are the most difficult to peel. To make sure that you'll be boiling old-enough eggs, keep them in the refrigerator first for about a week before boiling them. 2. Take the eggs out of the refrigerator....

My problem is that I'm too lazy to cook for myself... eating in restaurants is expensive and fast food is not tasty and good for health. If you have similar problem then you'll like my idea. I suggest creating a web site where amateur cooks will sell dishes of their preparation. There will be an opportunity to find diet food, different national dishes, etc. The prices will be specified by sellers but they will always be able to feed other people even for free. Buyers will use...

Instead of money buyers are supposed to accomplish various logical tasks which require certain alertness and vigour of understanding. There up to 40 different tests and tasks in the "menu"... from complex mathematical problems to simple tests for understanding and logic. To get familiar with these...

Bring your barbeque inside with a smokeless grill that uses lava rocks to create a more authentic, smoky flavor. Lava rocks heat up quickly and evenly distribute heat, and are also already used in some gas grills and commercial grills to heat up the grease and meat drippings to create more flavor. The lava rocks are incorporated into a smaller grill that can be used on a conventional range. The lava rocks disperse the heat from the gas or electric stove, creating a genuine BBQ...
