Idea – Walking Your Dog With A Larger Water Bottle And A Bowl

With these elevated temperatures I try to always carry a water bottle. Now my dog who died of cancer. Had a thick curly black coat. Heat waves would have been tough on him. So I thought. If he had lived now I would have carried with me at least a 1.5 litre water bottle and a bowl. Of cause I didn’t walk the dog during the hot part of the day either. Always keeping water for the dog seems like a good idea anyway.

Idea – Is Fish Involved In Sea Floor Recovery?

A guess of mine is that life doesn’t try to destroy its living surroundings. If the contrary were true life would not survive very long any way. So from this I formulate a simple exaggerated guess.

All life trough evolution tries to improve its living surroundings. This then would mean that fish is important for the sea floor as the sea floor is important for the fish.

In this case there should be research into how different fish can take part in the recovery of the sea floor.

Idea – Take Advantage Of Two (Wifi Cast Dongle?) Projectors For Your Presentation

The idea is simple. Why not use two projectors for your presentation instead of one. With two you can let the audience view an important image page on one projector while you progress the presentation on the other.

I have not tested but it should be easier to handle the two projectors with an app on the smartphone/tablet and a WiFi dongle like the Google chromecast connected to each projector.

Idea – Climate Resilience Measures And Possible Income For Municipalities?

The idea is simple. I believe we need to think about ways to mitigate future dramatic rises of energy prices. Be it fuel or electricity.

Since higher energy prices will not only affect private households. I wonder if our cities and municipalities could build flood and fire safe micro grids for important facilities.

With enough energy they could then perhaps start to sell electricity to the public. For fast car charging and more. Maybe this can be done without surplus energy from the sun. More electric charging places is important.

Idea – The Smart Educational Flower Pot

The idea is to educate yourself by doing instead of just reading. With an educational pot which monitors the plant health, soil and water content. You can begin to teach yourself how to manage your flowers.

The idea is that this smart pot sends information to your mobile and scores your handling of the plant. Somewhat like in games. I believe this can quickly improve your plant handling. At least I hope so. My handling so far has failed for too many types of flowers.

The idea is that once you have mastered the pot challenge for a number of different types of plants you can then handle the ordinary pots with ease.

So instead of a robotic grow machine. The problem could be that we need an inspiring fun hands on way to learn. Maybe this could be adapted for food production also. Learn how to grow food with a educational smart raised vegetables bed.

Guess – Enhance Athmospheric Water Harvesting In A Volume Of Higher Air Pressure?

I’ve seen small air to water harvesters using peltier elements. Here they let the water in the air condense on the cold side. Since a bicycle pump gets warm when you compress the air. I wonder. Would you not get a higher efficiency if you tried to cool this warmer air. Also since the volume is smaller maybe its easier to extract water from it once its colder.

So the idea is to have a air compression water extraction cycle. Air is compressed to a container then water is extracted then the air is let out. After that the cycle repeats with new fresh compressed air coming in.

Looking at some peltier cooling experiments I noticed that the thickness side of the ceramic peltier plate was hot. Maybe there is some efficiency gains one can do if this heat is diverted away from this small but hot side.

Idea – Engine Stove?

To start with I was thinking. Why should we burn gas directly for cooking? To me. We are wasting a lot of work energy potential.

So the idea is simple. Some of that energy in the gas could be used for mechanical work. Then there could exist an engine  enhanced gas stove that takes energy from the air with the mechanical work potential.

Maybe a piston engine connected to a turbocharger or compressor could work. The idea is that this would be more efficient than a direct contact between the cook ware and the burning gas.

So here I believe there is a potential for a new invention. A more efficient and safer? gas stove. The engine enhanced gas stove.

Come to think of it. Because of carbon monoxide an electric stove/oven is most definetly the prefered option. Instead of the usual gas powered stove.

Then why not a corresponding Electric stove. An engine enhanced electric stove/oven with a high Cofficient of Performance that uses hot air maybe.

So the reason is to make electric kitchen stove much cheaper to operate.

Idea – #hashtag With Price Information For Product Images Found In Search Engines?

The idea is simple. Finding a good price for a product can take a long time even using the Internet. So I wonder if one could include a #hashtag with the price information for product images. Then our popular search engines could optionally include that in an updatable price text together with the image.

So with this idea you could google prices for many products. Then if you like the product then you could turn on the price information directly from the search engine.

I wonder if the alt attribute in HTML image tag could be used for this. Just add #Price 123 USD. If not then maybe this information could be accesible to the search engine from somewhere else.

Important Idea – Water Preserving Showering Using A Drilled PET Bottle

The idea is simple. What would be the easiest way to preserve water during a shower? I don’t think it will be by waiting for a complex invention to be installed. The simplest solution I could think of was to use a plastic PET bottle.

Just drill some holes in the bottle cap and fill it up with water. A very simple solution. Just press the bottle to squeeze out the water to rinse yourself.

I managed to take a shower with little less than 1.5 liters of water.

Just make sure you clearly mark the bottle for showers only.

Smart Refrigerator Idea – the Static Refrigerator Photo

The idea is simple. The problem is that I am somewhat of a refrigerator opener. I open the refrigerator far to often. This will impact efficiency and I thought there has to be a better way to minimize this than to buy an expensive smart refrigerator which I can’t afford.

My idea is then that maybe all I need is to remember better whats in the refrigerator. So I came up with the idea of the static refrigerator photo or image. This photo then shows the typical foods I buy. The idea is that this photo can be placed on the refrigerator door.

Ideally a nice photo of foods products on the refrigerator door would aid your memory and indirectly improve at least for me my electric consumption.

Idea – Food Strategy For Refugee Situations?

I don’t know the food security strategy of the refugee camps but would it work to provide and require a food backup for the refugees to handle themselves? The idea is that everyone has access to food in case of additional emergencies.

I don’t know which foods to have and how. I think there should be information available. Maybe an emergency supply kit could work.

Idea – Heat Reduction Blanket For Sleeping

As a way to reduce heat from your face during sleep. I thought why not use a heat reduction blanket. The idea is basically inspired by a children’s knitted security blanket but much bigger. The way it works is by trapping colder air in pockets. You then use it as a pillow. Then when it gets hot you simple turn it to the side or some other part which feels colder.

I think it makes for a good product to be handmade and sold.

Desertification Idea – Cold Water Plant Storage For Atmospheric Watering

My idea is simple. I imagine a system in which you use cooled water in pipes to extract atmospheric water next to each plant. Somewhat like a drip irrigation system.

The idea is that this system would have a very little water usage. If you have a little cold water storage at each plant you should get water droplets on the outside of the container. Since the water container is cold this extracted water should not evaporate so quickly. The idea is that this allows the plant enough time to suck up the water. Partly because the soil is cooler.

I think this cold water bottle explains the idea. Use Water To Get Water.

Additionally I wonder if a storage of water near the plant could have a possitive impact on the temperature regulation of the soil. I think you could get that with computerized temperature regulation of the water in this the storage.

If the plastic storage is to be optimized then maybe the water storage container should also have something that looks like a plastic root. Something like a cone.

Also I think you need to spinn the cold water very fast in the container in order to get a better condensation effect.

Idea – Differentiated Cooling Per Product A Smart Refrigerator

My idea is simple. Every product essentially have different optimal storing temperatures. So why do we cool everything in a box that treats everything the same. A smart refrigerator should only cool products as much as needed. Therefore my idea is to invent a differentiated cooling refrigerator.

So the idea is that you cool milk at the milk storing temperature. Ketchup at the ketchup storing temperature and so on. The purpose of this not to waste energy on unnecessary cooling.

 

Idea – Should There Exist A Climate Change Experience Simulator Using VR?

Numbers are numbers. We cant really relate without any experience. Its very much like trying to tell someone the temperate in Celsius to someone who grew up with the Fahrenheit scale.

Therefore I wonder if we could create an advanced climate change simulator.

I imagine virtual reality glasses could be used. Like those VR ads where you are a gamer in a mix between virtual reality addons and a physical room.

Then in a museum we could create environments where you are virtually transported in time.

Idea – Deductable Innovation Services?

The idea is simple. I think maybe small companies could sometimes use consultants to find new innovative ideas for their catagory of products.

Like there are many smartphone brands. Maybe there should exist equally many TV brands. Maybe we in Sweden could invent an Open Source TV for instance.

I don’t know if this is needed but to get stuff like this going maybe the companies need to be sponsored. Be able to deduct some of the cost.

Idea – Combining Forces To Get That First Generation Product?

As something to think about. For some urgent products. Perhaps some climate related products. Is there a way to accelerate the innovation process and getting it production ready much faster than we currently do?

My idea is to test if a collaborative first generation and good enough product could be made. The idea is that several companies join forces to get that start product. From out of this first generation companies could then start to evolve it as their own product.

The important thing is that we get that first good enough generation of products.

Maybe something like this could be tested for some needed product.

A test if this idea works could be for a much more advanced peltier device. Not for electricity generation but for cooling. Or why not a new type of air conditioner.

Idea – Dual WiFi On The Smartphone?

The idea is simple. Why not make smartphones with dual WiFi capabilities. The idea is that you should in case of emergency be able to share any type of Internet connection your phone has with others. So with this. Your phone can share an already established WiFi connection. Simply by using the second WiFi chip as a hotspot.

In other situations. For instance with guests you can easily share the home WiFi connection from your phone. The password would then be the temporary hotspot password instead of the home WiFi password.

With two WiFi cards on the phone. Such sharing should be much easier to achieve.

Idea – Solar Powered Food Market Container?

The idea is simple. Every bit of food counts. Refrigeration is well known method to keep food fresh. Therefore should not outdoor food markets be improved. I was thinking why does there not exist a solar powered food market container? Like those solar powered school containers.

I think it could be part of a climate resiliance package.

Idea – Assault Weapons Ban Foundation?

The idea is simple. One way to get the ban on assault weapons in place is to leverage the number of people and big companies behind it. So why not not create an Assault Weapons Ban Foundation.

The idea behind the foundation is to drive safety issues that protect the public. Here individuals and companies could become members and support this ban.

The main idea to get an assault weapons ban now is to get big and small corporate backing.

Hopefully this will convince the gun sense deniers that there is a better way.
