My idea is for a reusable container made of 100% post-consumer, fully recyclable material, such as a heavyweight cardboard, for liquids, such as detergent and fabric softener. The reusable packaging would hold either individual ladders of detergent or fabric softener or a combination of both for cross promotional brands. Bladders would also be made of 100% post-consumer, fully recyclable material. Multiple sized bladders would fit into a universal dispenser to accommodate consumer volume needs.

This design would reduce overall packaging needed for laundry and other frequently purchased cleaning liquids while allowing for a multi use dispensing system. Not only would this product benefit the environment as a result of the reduction in waste material and increased recyclability, the product ...

Every year someone drowns in a river or lake and the local rescue squad has to be called out to locate the body. This can take several days to weeks and sometimes the victim is not found until it surfaces and a fisherman discovers the body. A mannequin with the physical characteristics of a man including size and weight and bouyancy could be manufactured with a locator beacon, either sound or using GPS technology, and it would be dropped in close proximity and under water conditions similar to the accident. The mannequin would replicate a drowning victim in the water and the locator would allow the team to follow the movement and find the victim sooner. This would shorten ...

All the known toothbrushes should be periodically sterilized. First proposed construction of a toothbrush that can do it yourself by pressing an on-off” switch. Built-in LED emits ultraviolet light which kills bacteria on the toothbrush bristles. The LED is powered from a conventional source of energy and the solar battery, which is located on the toothbrush handle. Ultraviolet can be useful for human teeth and gums as a therapeutic factor. Maslov ‘s toothbrush registered as an application for an invention in Ukraine (? a 2011 08063, 29.06.2011). We are looking for a partner for patenting this solution in the U.S. and an organization for production of this “hi-tech” ...

A new industrial approach, combining flexibility in design with sustainability.

Why do you have to stay years with the same door handle, when you can change it every while by only changing the lever, in a simple mechanical assembling. What are the benefits?
Maximizing the experiences and providing the user with pleasure of living a different emotion everyday or sending a message to his family members or room mates, and also at the same time this approach in design maximize the sales, where the manufacturer will offer a different collection every season, so besides selling a complete door handle, they also sell levers in on Valentine's Day and Halloween, Christmas, spring or just new collections like in the fashion industry ...

What problem does your design idea solve?

My design idea proposes a sustainable domestic automatic watering system for small horticulture stations in apartments.

What are the potential benefits?

Using my sustainable domestic automatic watering system you can have a domestic horticulture station furnishing fresh ortages. The micro irrigation device delivers water onto the soil surface very near the plant or below the soil surface directly into the plant root zone optimizing water consumption.

City planners around the world have been urged to make horticulture an integral part of their development and planning strategies.

More than half the world's population now live in urban areas and according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization city dwellers could help to ...

My app is a mobile Internet communication service which helps
the users to communicate, send SMS, MMS, email and chat from his computer without the mobile handset. This type of new operating communication system works when people usually forget their mobile phone at home. Customers can still call their friends from their personal computer, by logging in with user name and password. User name is their mobile number; once they are logged in they can talk and also recieve calls. Any call received on the mobile phone, the user receives a beep or alarm ringtone on his office computer. If any missed call, it will highlight with the alert message. The currency will be deducted same as communicating ...

We have a million models of mobile phones in our midst but I have not yet come across a model with a built-in intercom which can facilitate two-way communication between two authenticated parties using the GHz range or a WiFi protocol within a short range of say 100 metres. This will enable communication without the use of GSM or GPRS technology much like using full-duplex walkie talkies-"Walkie Mobile ...

The MDMouse(TM) product is a new innovation in home-based medical measurement technology. It combines an otherwise conventional computer optical mouse controller with one or more internal medical parameter measurement devices such as a blood pressure cuff or blood glucometer etc. which are stored in the mouse. It has an access door which is easily opened any time a user wishes to take a measurement. The opened door permits access to an interior BP cuff or other such device which can be extended to permit the user to then take his BP or other such medical measurement. Data from the measurement is then automatically stored in the computer to which the mouse is connected and may be eventually transmitted over ...

The novel idea is in the Basic Unit, composed of two covers, which constitute the bed, that can be used independently of the mattress. These male and female parts have measures and holes in the appropriate configuration, to assemble themselves in different forms depending on the necessity to constitute itself into a bed, one bed, bunk beds, or several bunk beds. Pieces can be used as a library, base for two mattresses, storage, clothing storage, by making multiple unions through multi-assembling special attachments that, lock themselves between them.

Those elements are joints, bolts, ladders, extensions, supports, stairs, tables, hooks, guard rails, railings, wheels as well as other accessories. In situations such as disaster relief or emergencies, you can multiply ...
