Using a power sentence “that everything can be classified into groups”. An imagination exercise would then be to think of friction. As there are potential energy and kinetic energy could friction also be classified into groups?
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.
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.
I wonder. How many fires and how many deaths can be avoided if people don’t cook while there drunk.
Is this a risky behavior some people are not aware of? Do we need an information campaign?
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.
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.
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.
In Sweden we have supermarket store brands of food. So my idea is simple. Although we have the best furniture store in the world. I thought an idea would be if these big supermarkets would have their own basic brand of beds and maybe sofas.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This idea didn’t do well. I bought an IR temperature reader and it showed that the temperature mostly increased instead.
Well. Using an air flow to generate heat. Maybe there exists the possibility to create a turbo cooker instead?
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.
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.
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.
The idea is simple. If we put ourselves in the teachers position we try to make things very clear and easy to understand. Then why not take advantage of this in school.
Engage the students with an assignment to record their own educational video. Even if it is math and the student is not entirely correct its still hundred percent worth it.
This is idea is not necessarily for making the student a teacher. Instead it can be thought of as a video paper essay.
Come to think of it. Video exams or papers could perhaps be used in online education or MOOC’s. Just record the test and upload it for review.
For this you can simply use the video recorder on the smartphone and a flexible holder.
The idea is simple. Since you need education to get a job and you need a job to get money. I thought. Why not combine both education and work. With education and jobs online it is not an impossible task.
So the idea is for someone like the goverment or business to create a range of online jobs for people to apply for. They don’t need to be all that complicated. The important thing is that there are plenty of such starter jobs.
Combining education with work will make the education part take a longer time. But considering the drop out rate of online courses I think you need the motivation. For instance people don’t have the same dropout rate from work. So with smart online education I think this could work.
The important thing here is that your not away from the work community. Simply education only will not give you this.
We are about to develop AI assistents and possibly AI who teaches. This AI might only be able to teach in simple terms and be asked the usual questions.
Inspired by this. Why could not we humans with our advanced brain have built in biological mini intelligences. Maybe there exists intelligence as programs from other animals from our heritage in our brain.
The purpose of this special intelligence would be to train the rest of the brain. So why is there not only such intelligence. One guess would be that the trained brain can connect skills from different programs and make connections that the biological programs themselves can not do.
The idea is simple. You feel good when you can laugh with others. So my idea is to record a ”meta” show where you film people watching the show or movie. Then when you are about to watch the movie you select a group of people you find funny to watch the movie with. With this you could create a dual TV experience or at least TV plus tablet experience.
So the idea is to create extra shows for the movie or show you are about to watch. Here the extra show is just funny people watching the same show.
Another advantage of this dual TV experience idea is that you don’t need to go to another room to watch some news or sports. With subtext this extra TV in the living room could work. Also now you don’t need to keep attention to commercials. Just display two channels at the same time.
