Why not provide an automatic transmission system for traditional wheelchairs? The wheels can be attached to conventional wheelchairs. They will able to recognize the movements of the user. The wheels can then choose the correct gear for moving up or down hills and across rough terrains by monitoring the user's speed and how hard they are pushing. Because the wheels are automated, the user won't need to expend any extra time or effort in changing gears.

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.

The new earphones will allow users to enjoy their music without blocking out the surrounding sounds. They will include two very small speakers held in place in the ear canal by a retention device. Because the speakers will only fill part of the ear canal, environmental noises will still be able to be heard. And since the device will not seal the ear, gradual hearing loss can be prevented.

A very interesting shop ONE NOFFS was opened in Sydney. It creates designer works from the old stuff. The idea belongs to Rupert Noffs who is the grandson of Ted Noffs (the founder of The Ted Noffs Foundation, a charitable organization that helps the drug addicts and alcoholics). He developed the concept of "second hand" store turning an ordinary shop of old stuff into the platform for creative and talented young designers work, who can also make money on this. ONE NOFFS shop...

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...

The idea is to create a device that will be mounted on any pair of glasses, transforming ordinary eyewear into a bio-rhythmic LED display. The device will wirelessly receive data from other devices such as heart rate monitors, power meters, and cadence modules, and feed it back to the user through real time LED indicators and audio updates. The built in speaker will provide audio input, and a specific series of taps on the unit's side will deliver instant updates or cycle it...

The idea is to create a device that will use sound to guide the wearer to slower breathing, helping to reduce blood pressure. The device will include a sensor mounted on a strap and a small control unit with headphones. Placing the sensor on the stomach will allow it to gather data on the breathing rhythm, which will then be converted into tones. The user will be able to breathe along with the tones, which will gradually lengthen the exhalation, slowing the breath and relaxing the...

The organic laser uses a protein found in jellyfish as its light source, creating the first organic laser. The laser uses a single cell as its optical gain media. The cell was engineered based upon a species of jellyfish that uses green fluorescent protein (GFP) to create bioluminescent light. An inch long cylinder with mirrors at each end was built, and then a cell that express GFP at the required level was placed inside the cylinder. The cell based device created short bursts of...

The idea is to develop a back panel reflector that will harnesses solar energy to power laptop screens. A mirror on the back panel pointed at the sun will be able to direct the sun's rays toward the screen to add natural light to the LED backlight.

Why not create a thermostat that will keep track of each time the home owner adjusts the temperature, eventually setting itself to the most favored temperatures. The thermostat's heating and cooling cycles will be set by a single wheel, and it will also be controlled from a distance by smartphone. In addition to learning the owner's preferences, its integrated sensors will also keep track of light, humidity, motion, and light. The thermostat will automatically adjust itself...
