Free Idea # 268 - Eco-green garden irrigation systems

Launch an initiative that would require all lawn sprinklers and
garden irrigation systems to be fitted with rain sensors in the
next three years. Water flow would automatically shut off
when it rains and start again when it stops. Deluxe models
would also grab the weather forecast from the Internet -
if heavy rain was predicted for the afternoon they would not
water at all in the morning.

Free Idea # 267 - Idea to make beach a safer place

Give a discount on parking to all beach-goers who can prove
lifeguard certification and are prepared to wear a high-visibility
sash, wristband, or hat, and are willing to save lives when called
upon. This would take a little pressure off the designated
lifeguards and make the beach a safer place for all.

deploy the bags in the event of freefall
(e.g. being dropped accidentally) or sudden flight.

Free Idea # 265 - Refrigerator

Make refrigerators 8 feet wide and 6 inches deep. That way
everything would be at the front and users would never need
to move a thing to find what they are looking for.

Free Idea # 264 - Sushi bar stylist restaurant with a range of ethnic cuisine

Set up a restaurant where a conveyor belt would carry a range
of ethnic cuisine - not just sushi - in small portions. Diners
would be free to mix and match from a menu including mini
hamburger, mini tagliatelle alla bolognese, mini chile con carne,
and mini Greek salad.

Free Idea # 263 - Street light electric power generater

Fit small wind turbines to the top of lamp posts. The power
generated could offset the consumption of electricity by the
street light. The turbines would be in a good position to catch
the wind, especially on taller poles and masts along major
highways and at large intersections, and on exposed sections
of road.
