The idea is to create vibrating belts which will make it possible for soldiers to follow directions and find their way through the darkness. The belt will contain eight mini actuators that will represent the eight cardinal directions. A GPS system, compass, and accelerometer will be able to track the direction a soldier moves, and provide a gentle, vibratory nudge to help keep him on the correct path.

Why not invent a "smart" Christmas tree - one capable of retaining its needles for twice the normal length of time?

I have written a true untold historical story that has been a family secret for nearly 85 years. Years ago my great aunt was out looking for a job and walked into the office building of a famous man by the name of DC Stepheson and was hired on as his personal secretary. She knew nothing about him or his business but over time she figured it out and on the same day of his incarceration she took and hid his busness ledgers. The following day the FBI raided his office and did not find what they...

I wish we had a single web site with primary goal to help homeless people. The site would contain the full list of organizations helping such people, products and other stuff required to be donated. They could even have volunteers to come to your house and take things you wanted to donate. This would definitely make it easier for other people to contribute to charity as the majority simply didn't know where to go / what to donate / who to contact and so on.

Years ago my great aunt took a job working for a famous man by the name of DC Stephenson back in the late 1920's as his personal secretary which she knew nothing about him or his business but over time she figured it out and on the same day of his incarceration she took and hid his business ledgers and the following day the FBI raided his office and did not find what they were looking for. People back then dug up 200 holes on my grandfathers farm looking for those ledgers back then. My story...

My idea is to involve homeless people in city sightseeing tours. Who knows the city and its places to visit better than homeless people do? This seems to be beneficial for both tourists and homeless people: the first can learn interesting facts about the places they visit; the second receive an opportunity to earn a little money and communicate with people.

After beating the snot out of each other one day, Stig and I discussed ways of bringing lasting peace to the world. Military deterrents? Forget it. Economic sanctions? Punchless. Public ridicule? Now you're talking... Simply add the following amendment to the UN charter: Should any nation declare war on any other nation, the declared upon nation has the right to officially rename the declaring nation; use of this new name shall be binding for all UN members. Would any nation...

Why not take your debt card; put your picture on it; and when you swipe it to pay for booze it will verify your age. I can't think of anyone that would give their debt card and pin to anyone, plus it has your photo on it.

I propose that the national government expend public funds to sponsor scientific research by creating a comprehensive Academic Papers Database. Many journals and data warehouses exist to contain academic papers, but a central data repository would have numerous advantages. 1) Undergraduate students who produce papers for college could have their papers permanantly inducted into the database when submitted for grading in electronic form. Thereafter, University Professors all over the...

I think it's terrible to see a presidential debate where one candidate claims that the sky is green while the other says it is yellow, and then the interviewer nods solemly and moves on to the next question. This stuff is poison for any democracy - yet this strange type of political interview seems to be spreading like the plague! Let the viewers reach their own opinions? What a bunch of hogwash! The viewers (including myself) simply don't have the facts, they have jobs and a family...
