My idea is to create sportswear with built in flexible electronics to monitor an athlete's biological indicators, like pH levels in sweat, heart rate, or blood pressure, generating data on metabolism or other factors and beaming it wirelessly to a trainer's laptop. The electronics could also simply count the steps to measure the distance traveled or the number of reps completed. Having such a sportswear will remove the need for some clunky external device to record or transmit...

If puncture happens and you don't have a rubber adhesive, bend a tire tube near the damaged area, bind tightly with a strong thread and then inflate the tire. With such an inner tube you can get home and perform a more thorough repairing. If the puncture is very big, take up the inner tube at all and fill in the tire with hay, grass, leaves, etc. With such a tire you can ride 25-30 miles. As you see, both of these advices are for the extreme cases.

The vibrating suit will provide haptic feedback to help athletes develop muscle memory. The suit will use an array of vibrating motors to send feedback to the user as to their body's position in space. The motors will signal in real time when the athlete is outside the desired range, and the data will be also recorded for later study.

I'm a soccer player. It is a real disaster for me to have a game on a sunny day as I hardly see anything and often lose the ball. My idea is to create sunglasses that are contacts so as I could look into the sun and see the ball.

Why not create a simple one minute test to determine quickly whether or not an athlete has suffered a concussion? The test will evaluate the athlete's ability to read numbers which are displayed on a series of flashcards. The time it will take for the athlete to respond will be compared to a baseline test. Any coach or doctor will be able to diagnose a concussion confidently if the athlete's response is more than 5 seconds slower. The test will also check for eye movement,...

I would like to have a new bike lock system which will be strong, sleek, and long enough to pass through both wheels and secure the bike to a stationary object. The system will consist of a steel, pick resistant lock and a flexible titanium bow that will be able withstand a saw and a 48-inch bolt cutter. The largest size will weigh less than 5oz, which will be one third the weight of a conventional U-lock. The flexible bow will be large enough to wrap around objects as large as 5.5...

Why not create a rifle that can be converted to a fishing rod, providing a lightweight and compact option for backpacking hunters? Rifle that transforms to fishing rod The rifle will weigh under 15.5 oz, and will be quickly broken down into two pieces, which will make it easier to pack. The rifle itself will be a single shot, .22 caliber made of aluminum and carbon fiber. It will convert to a fishing rod by extending the butt stock tube and attaching a reel to the handle.

Why not take advantage of the natural sweetener xylitol to create a shoe that will convert sweat to cool air. The cycling shoe will include an insole, which will help to keep heat from building up within the shoe. The insole will be infused with xylitol, an alcohol based sugar. The fibers in the insole will be able to moderate both moisture and temperature, absorbing body heat and converting it to a 'refrigerant'.

Why not provide football helmets with impact sensing accelerometers? This will help to analyze how blows to the head relate to brain injuries. Three types of accelerometers will be placed in the mouthpieces, earpieces, and helmets to see if real time neuroanalysis can occur during the games, allowing for the isolation and diagnosis of the concussions within minutes. By the way, long-term data could provide information on how players become injured and help engineers design a...
