The idea is to have a bicycle lock you can wear, eliminating the need to carry a heavy lock around your shoulders or on your bike frame where it can feel clumsy and cause scratches. It will be the first bike lock specifically designed to be worn on the body. The lock will be adjustable and easy to remove, in contrast to conventional bike locks which must be locked onto the body in order to be secure. The lock will be made to carry its weight on the user's hips and will have highly...

The magnetic bike light will detach quickly and turn on automatically when attached to the frame. Designed to help prevent theft, the lights will be easily removable and pocket-sized, allowing them to be quickly detached and taken along when the bike is left unattended. They will fit an array of tube diameters, remaining securely in place and emitting a bright LED light from the sides as well as directly ahead. The lights can be placed anywhere on the frame, automatically...

I suggest creating the first ever wireless bike. The eBike will have only a tiny bit of wiring in the front hub. The bike will also have a USB port, charging port, LED batter power display, regenerative brakes and a wheel that will double as a generator. All of the bike's circuitry will be in-frame, including the electric motor, battery, throttle and peddle-assist functions. Motor range will be 12-15 miles. Battery will take 4-5 hours to recharge.

Surveys have shown that almost half of the respondents admit to flirting on flights, while one-third of them meet up after the flight has landed. The idea is to create an application that will help make flying more social, and less random, by allowing fliers to choose seatmates through Facebook. The application will allow users to link their Facebook profile to their check-in information, and then choose a seating partner based on their profile. Both passengers must choose to...

Why not develop a personalized onboard system to monitor chronic disease and personal wellness? The new system will be designed to react to simple voice commands, and will be able to deliver information on environmental aspects affecting allergies or monitor the blood sugar of diabetics through wireless glucose monitors. The system will also recommend alternative routes, suggest a snack, or roll up the windows in case of smog.

The idea is to create a motorcycle helmet that can be removed without moving the patient's head. Such a helmet could help to reduce the risk of exacerbating spinal cord injuries. It will be possible to remove the helmet by releasing one pin and two clips, which will allow the front of the helmet to be slipped off. The helmet will be also put on by opening the back and tightening the side ladder clip, which will eliminate the need for a chin strap and provide a better fit.

It is known that a basking shark feeds by swimming with its mouth open. The shape of the shark's body plays an important role in its efficiency as a feeder. A pressure differential is created as the shark swims, resulting in lower pressure along the shark's top and helping to draw water out of the shark's gills in a way that allows it to rely on the passive flow of water to feed. Why not design a turbine with the shark's design in mind? Water enters through the first turbine while...

My idea is to create a device which is attached to a tire and study its pressure, compare it with an ideal one, check if it is intact, etc. and fix the problem once it is detected.

For decades, rag-pickers have been marching up and down the city's railway tracks gathering empty plastic bottles, wrappers and other garbage discarded by commuters. The solution for this has already been found in India. Central Railway engineers there modified an old engine into a massive trash can able to pull in all the garbage as it chugs along the tracks.

The idea is to develop a new technology that will allow cars to harness their waste heat for better fuel efficiency. It is necessary to create new thermoelectric generators, which will consist of semiconductor materials treated with hafnium and zirconium. The generators will be less expensive than conventional devices as well as 40 percent more efficient.
