I heard that it is possible to create a drug addiction vaccine to help users kick the habit. The vaccine will be a combination of cocaine like chemical and an inactive cold virus. It will bind to the cocaine in the bloodstream and prevent it from reaching the brain.

I want scientists to discover a substance effecting powerfully on the biological clock. Eventually, this substance could be used to help workers on the night shift or frequent travelers better tolerate the variances in their schedules.

My idea is to create smart glasses. The eyeglasses will automatically adapt the wearer's head position, adjusting their focus as needed. There will be an LCD-like layer in the glass that can change structure when excited by an electrical current, adjusting the focus. The frames will have a built in accelerometer that can detect movement, such as lowering the head to read. What is more, the glasses are supposed to have both manual and automatic modes.

My idea is to create a service which will provide elderly people with extra conveniences for living in their houses, i.e. suggest design changes to make their life easier. For example, kitchens could have contrasting worktops to improve visual orientation; mixer taps are recommended to have one handle; there could be extra handrails in a bathroom as well as a seat in a shower, etc. Highly skilled specialists will inspect the house and advice many design ideas for you to make your...

Injections of nanoparticles were proved to be effective while revealing blood clots location. The developed particles contain bismuth, which is actually a toxic heavy metal. The nanoparticles are rendered harmless by use of a compound that prevents the bismuth atoms from running loose in the body. Another molecule added to the nanoparticles' surface is attracted to fibrin, a particle found only in blood clots. The molecule draws the particles to the clots, where the bismuth shows...

My idea is to create a sleeping mask which not only blocks out the light but also wakes the wearer with a programmable sunrise. Sounds really cool :) An LED substrate sewn into the inside of the mask will make the magic happen. It will begin its glow about a half hour before the user chosen waking time.

I suggest a quick, simple idea to remove body hair temporarily with no trouble. You prepare a bath of hot water and add a couple of drops of a special hair removal bath-gel which activates hair removal. Once the bathtub is full, you lie in the tub and soak from neck to toes. After 10 minutes or so you go to the shower and easily remove your body hair with a sponge. This is a great way for the hairy men and women to get rid of body hair quickly.

I want to offer a more efficient way to diagnose pneumonia by preventing the sample from being contaminated by oral bacteria. My idea is to create a device which will use air currents to separate particles from the lungs from particles originating in the mouth, ensuring that pulmonary phlegm hits the filter while the rest of the particles are routed to the lower balloon. Such a diagnostic tool could improve identification of pneumonia in children in developing nations and reduce...

My idea is to create a small multifunctional monitoring device. The battery operated and reconfigurable device will have four slots for biosensors such as a pulse oximeter or an electrocardiograph. The device will also incorporate a camera and a microphone, and will be able to transmit data wirelessly over the internet. Since it will be self contained, all the data and signal processing will be done on the device itself, rather than conventional wireless medical devices that only...

The idea is to create a glucose sensor for diabetes sufferers which will use tear fluid instead of blood. This may soon eliminate the need for finger pricks. The device will be able to take a sample of tear fluid by a painless dab at the corner of the eye. The device's sensor will measure the amount of glucose in the tear sample which is supposed to be very similar to the amount of glucose in blood.
