New Invention Ideas

I love solving problems and the more innovative the solution the better. Whether it is something to help a difficult medical condition, a way to help with the issues associated with aging, or a way to extend or enhance the use of electronics (along with many other things), I am on the trail.

Want Something New In A Banana? Well, Stuff It!

For the most part the same old banana is just the same old banana -- that is unless you choose to stuff it. But how does one stuff a banana? It is hardly like filling a cannoli, which is hollow.

Want To Really Go Through A Laundry Cycle? Get A Bike

Anyone who has ever done laundry knows that there is a lot of cycling going on with a washing machine -- the wash cycle, the rinse cycle, and a couple of spin cycles. So it seems only natural that inventors and designers would take this to the next level and create a bicycle that does the laundry while you exercise. The latest design to enter this strange competition is actually a stationary bicycle and not a refitted street bicycle.

Rice is a popular food the world over, especially in Asia. It tends to be fairly high in starchy calories that can eventually turn into fat if one isn't tearing about wearing it off.

The news that quarterback Tim Tebow has made it back into the NFL after several years by signing with the Philadelphia Eagles has astounded the country.
