Why not create an automatic streetlight which will be able to switch off and on as cars go by, potentially saving energy and reducing costs? The streetlight will consist of an automatic lighting system, PC, lamp, and camera able to capture an image of any passing car. The image will be processed by the computer, which then will instruct the light to switch on.

My idea is to create a new billboard powered by an electrochemical reaction using the acid from oranges as the catalyst. The billboard will be lined with a gridwork of copper and zinc spikes that will keep the oranges in place while also reacting with the acid of the oranges to create the electrochemical reaction, essentially creating a huge battery of oranges.

I suggest using a plastic metamaterial to build a cloak that makes objects invisible to sound waves. The cloaking device will be made of stacked sheets of plastic filled with holes that will be sized and arranged to redirect sound waves by either blocking them or absorbing them. The device will work for audible frequencies between one and four kilohertz, which is the same frequency as the higher two octaves on a piano.

The organic laser uses a protein found in jellyfish as its light source, creating the first organic laser. The laser uses a single cell as its optical gain media. The cell was engineered based upon a species of jellyfish that uses green fluorescent protein (GFP) to create bioluminescent light. An inch long cylinder with mirrors at each end was built, and then a cell that express GFP at the required level was placed inside the cylinder. The cell based device created short bursts of...

Why not develop a liquid-flow battery that can be used with electric vehicles, enabling them to be recharged as quickly as pumping gas and cutting the cost of current batteries in half? The batteries will consist of a liquid electrolyte semi-solid that will contain the electrodes to provide electricity. Once the energy from the electrolyte material is depleted, it can be removed from the battery and replaced with a fully charged amount. The depleted electrolyte material will be...

Why not replace ordinary shipping containers with collapsible ones? Collapsible containers can be folded when empty, saving space as well as the fuel required to ship the empty boxes. The containers can be folded vertically, reducing their width down to 1/5 of the original dimensions. Being able to reduce the size of the empty containers will drastically cut down on the amount of backhaul ocean voyages each year, which will reduce emissions.

I have trademarked and created a dice game called ROLL-n-STONED and I am looking for a manufatcurer to buy the rights. Or an individual who is knowledgable in this area who would be willing to joint venture the idea for marketing. The game is a lifestyle of many and easy to understand and play. If interested fell free to respond. Time is money.

You know the one where you are the doctor and you have to remove bones and such from the nerdy looking fellow on the operating table with a pair of tweezers all without touching the sides and making the buzzer light up...Well for some of you thats enough to entertain you and a couple of friends for a good 45 minutes or so but there are some of us that need alittle more than a blinking red light and a buzzer to be able to have a...

Do not over do it with the soap. 1/2 the measure is sufficient. If a stuffed animal has long or acryillic/ nylon type fur, air dry, do not put in the dryer. Do not use bleach, but you can add 1/2 up white vinegar in the wash water if they smell bad. Only use 1/2 measure of softener, or none at all. It is best to air dry most all of the toys you wash.

When you label things with indelible ink, it can still be washed off by alcohol. This can be inconvenient if you have to work with alcohol and other solvents. For example, you may be working in a lab and labelling your tubes with a Sharpie and some alcohol spills from the tube and wipes off the labels on your tubes. This is very bad, because now you don't know which sample is which. My idea is to make a clear wax crayon that you use to trace over your ink with. The layer of wax should...
