From having driven for a living I know that I could avoid slow downs and lights by knowing alternate turns I could make to avoid waiting at lights. A systematic approach to doing this might yield some efficiency gains that would be worth doing for GPS and route mapping.
I have always felt that the US could lead the way to the future by moving toward a hydrogen transportation economy. Once we are established using hydrogen and electric vehicles, the rest of the world would be forced... more »
The idea for solving these (in part) isn't really complicated. We would just need to convert basic exercise equipment into devices that convert mechanical (when used... more »

non-Windows users, but it was still... more »

I read that it is possible to transmit electricity.
In light of this, I consider this to be one our greatest discoveries if used correctly.
The sun generates an enormous amount of power that is radiated in 360 degrees cubed.
Using the transmitted electricity concept coupled with already existing solar panels would render electric... more »
A large magnification lens is affixed in the center of a parabolic mirrored amplification dish.
The parabolic dish reflect sun light into the focus of the magnification lens.
The magnification lens focuses the amplified sun light onto an iron core that is surrounded by water cells.
The water cells reach boiling point and produce... more »
