Why not develop a personalized onboard system to monitor chronic disease and personal wellness? The new system will be designed to react to simple voice commands, and will be able to deliver information on environmental aspects affecting allergies or monitor the blood sugar of diabetics through wireless glucose monitors. The system will also recommend alternative routes, suggest a snack, or roll up the windows in case of smog.

It turns out that one can get rid of excess weight not only with the help of exhausting workouts and strict diets. The experience of Sweden, which occupies a leading position on the number of people suffering from obesity, shows that it is possible to get rid of excess weight easily. There are unusual musical stairs in Stockholm subway. The steps of such stairs look like piano keys and when one presses on them, they produce musical sounds. The innovation of Swedish...

The idea is to create a device which will be useful for people with visual disabilities. This device will be capable to scan ordinary text and convert it into Braille on the surface of this mouse-like device. If the idea realized it would be much easier for people with visual disabilities to read most of what sighted people can.

Why not develop a tooth regenerating paste that can allow teeth to rebuild themselves by reversing decay? The peptide solution paste will contain a compound that will arrange itself into fibers when applied to a tooth. The fibers will form a scaffold to attract calcium and allow the tooth to rebuild itself from the inside.

Why not provide an automatic transmission system for traditional wheelchairs? The wheels can be attached to conventional wheelchairs. They will able to recognize the movements of the user. The wheels can then choose the correct gear for moving up or down hills and across rough terrains by monitoring the user's speed and how hard they are pushing. Because the wheels are automated, the user won't need to expend any extra time or effort in changing gears.

The environmentally friendly bandage will use nanobubbles to attack the protective surface of fungi and bacteria. The nanobubbles, which function similar to oil droplets, will operate in conjunction with a particular blend of polysaccharides, damaging the microbes' cell walls and causing them to dehydrate and die. The polysaccharides are less toxic and less expensive than the antibiotics and silver used in current germ fighting bandages.

Tornado can often strike at night when people are asleep and not tuned into the weather channel. As a result many of them are injured or killed. My solution is to create software that the National Weather Service can use to inform people about the tornado (in a single second). It will send text messages to all cell phones/landlines to people in areas most likely to be hit. This will be definitely a great warning system for those who are not tuned into TV, but are carrying phones.

An artificial pancreas could eliminate the needs of diabetics for insulin injections by delivering the insulin automatically when required. People with type 1 diabetes can maintain normal sugar levels by engaging in low key activities after eating. Working off this idea, the pancreas would consist of a closed loop system containing a blood sugar monitor, insulin pump, activity monitors attached to the body, and a processing unit. Input from the activity and blood sugar monitors...

The idea is to create a portable, handheld device able to screen for brain hematoma quickly, saving valuable diagnosis time. While the brain's absorption of light should be symmetrical, areas of the brain with extra blood alter the amount of light absorbed and reflected. The scanner will use near UV light to detect blood collections in the brain, and will be used to test different areas of the brain. The scanner is meant to be used as a quick screen, aiding in the decision as...

The newly developed mChip can accurately diagnose HIV, costs only $1 to produce, and is the size of a credit card. The plastic mChip can accurately diagnose HIV with only a pinprick of blood. The chip takes advantage of microfluidics and eliminates the need for skilled technicians for analysis. The low cost combined with the size, speed, and accuracy could make the mChip extremely valuable for diagnosis in rural areas.
