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 – Combining Forces To Get That First Generation Product?

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.

Key Education Idea – Let The Students Create Their Own Khan Academy Style Videos

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.

Idea – Part Work Part Education For Those In Need?

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.

Speculation – Intelligence As Biological AI + Mind

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.

Idea – Dual TV Experience Laugh With Others

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.

One Livingroom With A Dual TV Experience

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.

Idea – How To Invoke Your Genius Potential

Taking advantage of your creative mind is not as hard as you might think. One way you can recognize people who think smart is their ability to summorize an idea into a couple words. That is. They have learned to name an idea.

Why is name generation so important? Well with a few words you can identify or build a new theory or category of ideas, products and more.

So to train your creative genious you start to come up with names for inventions. These names are just descriptive word combinations. By doing so I believe that when you get an idea subconsciously. Your brain will catch it and automatically generate a name for it. So the brain can further process the idea and remember it.

When you have learned this. You can easily generate hundreds of ideas.

A simple example. The info display at the mall feel a little intrusive. So we generate a descriptive name for the invention. Vertical display. So now you see. It does not need to be vertical. We then change that to tilted or horizontal display.

Speculation – Is Gravity An Environmentally Friendly Force?

My idea is perhaps not that easy. The reason I think we should think in environmentally friendly ways is that this provides an additional way of thinking.

Inspired by infrared radiation. I guess that gravity is also a consequence from protecting matter. The key to gravity is that this energy I believe leaves the matter by teleportation.

I’m a little bit unsure how it all fits together but one reason you need to teleport the energy is from newtons law of gravitation. F = G m1*m2/r² . Then as r goes to zero this should be singular. A solution to this error is to teleport the energy away because you can not destroy energy.

Further I believe energy teleportation is the reason why a weak force such as gravity can have such a long reach. Also. Maybe black holes could reduce the size of atoms as a philosophically derived possiblity. Being mostly empty? space.

So the idea is that the energy is teleported away before the situation gets singular or too concentrated. Because as I wrote energy can not be destroyed.
