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.

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...

I think that the government often spends tax money in their own interest. I have a plan called Destributable taxes which will let the tax payers at least controll how some of their money is spent. Under my idea, the government would get full controll of 3/4ths of your taxes. The government could spend it as they see fit. The last fourth, however, would be distributed to different areas of the government by you. Your tax forms would contain a special form where you could dictate what...

During Daylight Savings Time clocks are turned forward an hour, effectively moving an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening. Unfortunately this steals an hour of daylight just before Halloween, and greatly increases the danger to the millions of little children who are rushing the streets in search of candy, while their fathers are madly rushing home to help pass out the goodies, It would make Halloween much safer for the children and put less stress on the fathers to...

Suggesting that each suburb in a city should be run as a strategic business unit, with the individual tax collection or a large percentage of it going towards meeting local development needs like education system and unemployment within the same suburb, consequently the more the employement the more the spending budget would increase for the suburb, giving a incentive to the corporator running the suburb to ensure higher employment. The corporate tax collection from the suburb with a...
