A new digital system that will allow the visually-impaired to 'read' graphs could provide them with more learning and employment opportunities while also making day-to-day business a bit easier. The system will provide a way for the visually-impaired to read the graphs and statistics that are so commonly used today. The device will use pattern recognition, machine learning and segmentation methods to identify blocks of texts or pictures and arrange them in the proper reading order....

The smart nicotine patch will inject a specific dose of nicotine on demand, helping to prevent cravings and making it easier to stop smoking. Instead of delivering a steady stream of nicotine like conventional nicotine patches, the smart patch will deliver doses that are synchronized with the user's cravings. The system will also be equipped with Bluetooth, which will allow it to send real-time data to smartphones regarding nicotine consumption while also providing a way to control...

The sensor will monitor your sleep patterns and bedroom environment to help ensure the best sleep possible. The system will be made up of two main components. The globe-shaped sensor will monitor the bedroom ambiance, gathering information on the room's levels of noise, light, temperature, humidity and air particulates, while another sensor will attach to your pillow to track sleep behavior. The first sensor will glow green when the environment is well-suited for sleeping, and will...

The device will help reduce the danger of alcohol-infused socializing by sending an alert that will allow friends to step in if the wearer seems dangerously intoxicated. Research has long established that over-consumption of alcohol is the largest contributor to sexual assault on campuses. To help reduce those numbers, I suggest creating an inconspicuous wristband that will monitor the user for dehydration as well as any unusual movements, such as weaving or passing out. And since...

The idea is to develop a software program that will detect when an individual's mind has wandered and will send an alert to get them back on task. The system will use commercially available eye tracker technology to observe the user's eye movements and determine if they are concentrating as expected. If the system decides the user's mind has wandered, it can pause the work session, highlight the missed content, or display the content in a different way. The device could have...

The idea is to develop a device that will make use of the warm water from showers or baths by capturing the heat from the draining water and using it to help heat up the incoming cold water. Although there are several versions of hot water heat recyclers on the market, this device will differ in that it will not need long length of vertical pipe for installation. Instead, the it will be installed horizontally next to the drain, which will also allow it to capture the heat more...

Designed for device-lugging people who live in urban environments, this bag will protect fragile electronic devices by inflating to form a cushion of air that can be released on command. The bag will be made of polyurethane-coated, carbon-fiber fabric panels welded together for extra durability and waterproofing. The bag's inflatable sections will be made from thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) films, which can be inflated with a pump in just a minute and deflated in ten seconds. The...

Created for people with normal hearing, this smart listening system will be designed to help the user hear better in different environments, such as crowded rooms or city streets. The system will include a wireless microphone, a charging case and the scoop which will fit inside the ear. Its settings will be controlled by a smartphone app, which will allow the user to choose quickly from a grid of sound settings or from "sound scenes," such as a busy restaurant or while driving. The...

The cancer-detecting bra will monitor body heat to help identify tumors at the early stages--allowing for prompt treatment and a higher survival rate. Developed to work as a supplement to conventional screening methods, the bra will be equipped with sensors to monitor heat patterns in breast tissue over a 2 to 12 hour period. This data will then be transmitted to a computer, which will analyze the patterns to determine if any early tumors are beginning to form.

The idea is to create a sensor which will be permanently placed in an individual's eye to help monitor and manage glaucoma. People at risk of developing glaucoma are often required to have their eye pressure checked many times throughout the year. However, eye pressure can vary throughout the day, and even checks throughout the year may not indicate the disease when it is in its early stages. To help make monitoring eye pressure easier, and more constant, a low-power sensor...
