The grassy computer keyboard is designed to make office work a bit less tedious by allowing your fingers an occasional run through the 'grass.' The keyboard features a green grass like material the covers the keyboards surface and gently stimulates the wrists and palms during typing. By using a static electricity hair transplant technique, the fibers of the grass remain upright continuously, and the invigorating texture and pleasing visual design could lead to increased work...

The haptic feedback suit will put gamers in the game, letting them feel every shot, hit and explosion as it happens on-screen. The sensor-laden suit will feature three forms of sensory feedback: surround sound, vibration and STIMS (which will allow the suit to contract particular muscles). This array of sensors will enable the suit to recreate (in a less painful way) the sensations of explosions, bullets or creatures crawling on your skin.

Why not create software to scan videos of crime scenes and identify frequently reoccurring faces? This will help with the identification of individuals who may know something about the crime. The software will work from any video stream, including cell phone video. It could also be used to count the number of times an individual shows in a particular location, and mark that person as a possible person of interest if they appear more than a certain number of times.

My idea is to create a mobile application integrated with a database of public lavatories within a city/country/state/etc. After you define your location the application will return the list of the nearest lavatories. It seems to be very convenient. By the way, the database should be updated on a daily basis.

Tornado can often strike at night when people are asleep and not tuned into the weather channel. As a result many of them are injured or killed. My solution is to create software that the National Weather Service can use to inform people about the tornado (in a single second). It will send text messages to all cell phones/landlines to people in areas most likely to be hit. This will be definitely a great warning system for those who are not tuned into TV, but are carrying phones.

Recently i had the pleasure of hearing Christian Bök's amazing sound poetry. Speaking with Frank Davey and Christian at a recent conference at the Univeristy of Ottawa called "Re: reading the postmodern," i mused about the possibilities of taking sound poetry, having it recorded by speech recognition software and then having the result transcribed to be performed once again by the poet and done all over again. I refer readers to the interesting work of sound poets as featured on...

Basically, it's software that will find a specified game folder, locate all the audio/video/and image files and shrink them. By shrink, I do not mean zip. The software would take say a jpg and extract some of the pixels, thus shrinking the file. Take away some noise in an mp3/wav file, and it also shrinks. I have been doing this very tedious task manually for some time now in order to make graphically intensive games run faster. It DOES work.

I would like to be able to look at a days computer activity by date on my Mac and also be able to use it as a search. ie the interface might be a calender.

Search for "John Doe"... I get a list...

OK I don't know about everyone else but i have major problems pulling myself away from computer games to do work, I easily rack up 3 hours on a game when i tell myself I'm only going to play for 15 mins or something. So my idea is to have a computer program running that prevents me from opening a game. Sounds simple enough but as it stands anyone with a brain cell can work out how to get around it. There's one key element to this program: When you install it on your PC, you choose 3...

Recent research has shown that a simulated out-of-body experience is easily induced by presenting a binocular view of another's surroundings to an observer (see reference 1 below). By presenting slightly different angles to the left and the right eye, a stereoscopic effect can be induced. Second life is a growing online community that would potentially be interested in immersive virtual reality, and there could be money to be made by enhancing their online experience. Using an infrared...
