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.

Have the government give taxpayers access to an internet tax return form with all the sources of income that it knows about already entered into it. It already knows all or most of your sources of income because it receives copies of your tax forms. You would only need to fill in any extra things that the government doesn't know about, if any, and then click submit and your taxes would be filed. That would take just minutes. The computer would calculate how much refund you get....

PoliStats works in much the same way as football game statistics. Whenever you're watching a football game they are able to pull up amazing statistics about each player, each team, how many times a team has lost in their home arena during a given month. The stats are amazing. Why not have statistics and facts pulled up during political debates--how a candidate actually voted previous to the bologna that he's currently spouting, what their charitable donations are, what organizations or...

This idea is directed at the USA but might have application elsewhere. I am proposing an idea to our government to promote the creation of a nationwide, privately run, rail shipping system that could significantly affect the energy cost and number of interstate trucks. The idea is a cross between the Interstate highways and Federal Express. The infrastructure would be developed and paid for by both the federal and local governments just as the Highways were. Initially it would only...

Our founding fathers were exceptionally wise to ensure a separation of church and state. Now that enormous power lies in the business and financial world, we now see the results of too close relationships between large corporations and our own US government. The American people should demand Separation of Business and State.
