#2739: WaveWing

Thu, 21 Dec 2017 19:15:04 +0000

There is something very romantic about the old idea of driving your classic Porsche 911 to the beach with a surfboard on the roof. Porsches have, over the 50 years of the 911’s history, been fitted with some enormous inverted wings. Today’s invention is therefore a surfboard which can be …

When using a messaging app for dating purposes, people are currently faced these days with an optimisation problem: how long to wait before responding to his/her last message? Respond after too big a delay and you risk losing their attention. Go back too soon and you look desperate. Today’s invention …

#2737: Rollinks

Today’s invention is a tanktrack link which has a roller embedded in it. This roller (red) contains a lock which can be activated wirelessly, so that as the track is lifted off the ground, the roller falls into a different position vertically (and is again locked). Normally the rollers would …

#2736: Prophylact-Ice

Mon, 18 Dec 2017 18:47:35 +0000

A Council worker drove past me today on the street where I live. His wagon was spreading salt -even though the ambient temperature was 8 deg C. He looked at me as if he deserved a round of applause as his aerial bombardment of corrosive grit pinged off the paintwork …

#2735: Floatanker

The US Navy knows a thing or two about firefighting. It seems that if three or more fuelled planes are on fire together, they can’t be extinguished. They must be allowed to burn out. It’s obviously a bad idea to park fuelled planes together in a bunch. They might not …

#2734: Mudeflectors

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 17:27:30 +0000

Running along country tracks and trails in Winter means that your legs get coated in mud -especially at the back. This can be pretty hard to clean off. Today’s invention is therefore a set of stretchy mudflaps for one’s running shoes. These fit as shown and keep the mud spray …

2733: MetAdvent

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 17:13:33 +0000

In an era where commercialism has gone mad and each festival has more or less merged into the next, today’s invention highlights that craziness, in the hope that something can be done to stop it. It takes the form of an advent calendar which allows people to count the days …

#2732: ALighters

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 17:06:14 +0000

These days it’s easy to create a fire model, but harder to interpret the results. This is true for experts and even more so for journalists. Instead of just burning off huge tracts of land and endangering all the local wildlife, today’s invention is to employ UAVs, each equipped with …

#2731: LogisticLogin

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 15:27:29 +0000

Strong passwords are often hard to remember. That seems to be because the very patterns which allow us to form memories are also the things which hackers can get to grips with most easily. If you use any simple algorithm to generate a password, for example, then that is a …

#2730: CareXit

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 19:22:53 +0000

Today’s invention is a system by which a car driver can control the degree to which any of the other doors may be opened. This allows the driver to ensure that no-one (eg children or people with impaired vision) flings a door into the face of a cyclist or into …
