    I agree, it would be cool if all community activities had their own galleries and "reward" system, stars, etc. (although I think the reward is basically seeing the other cool ideas, every little bit helps).

    The perfect pen

    ...or you know some other everyday-common item. Maybe it would be fun to try a "down-to-earth" topic.

    sticky this thread?

    looking through the EOW suggestions thread, i saw someone mention an upside down world and had this idea - a device that lets you walk/live rightside-up in an upsidedown world.

    Environmentally Destructive Mode of Transportation.

    I'm talkin' ridiculously destructive. Something that belches out obscene amounts of pollution, or lays waste to acres of land as it travels. It could be highly futuristic, or low-tech steampunk kinda stuff.

    Ultimate Spy Aircraft

    Design an aircraft (manned or unmanned) that uses 1: stealth, 2: long endurance flights of 2 days or more, and 3: that after identifying a target, can engage and destroy it in minutes if not seconds.


    The Ultimate Road Trip Vehicle

    That about sums that one up. A vehicle that you and your friends could use going to the beach or across the country and would be ergonomically and technologically decked out to provide the ultimate amount of comfort and entertainment while traversing from point A to point B. Could be a mod of a modern or older car, or an entirely new design.

    suggestions :

    design a military ornithopter for use in mountainous kingdom. It should be able to deliver real firepower while maintaining balance and altitude.

    design a tank for the british empire c 1815 that can be used both on board ships and on land, intended for use in the Americas, Europe, and the Orient, which sport a variety of different terrains and enemies.

    the amazing motorcoach, transportation of the future

    2164, the newly elected king Louis XX of the Avignon colonies wishes to bring back the flavor of his Bourbon ancestors, feeling that it will inspire a sense of nationalism on the new planet. Design the king a royal outfit like those worn by the Carpetian kings, with all the modern conveniences of post-terran technologies.

    Neo-Chavalier - design a modern-day warrior for a people who never developed firearms.

    and i really liked

    A laboratory or factory, that designs and manufactures or breeds organic technology and/or organic spacecrafts.

    An organic household item, that serves as food-source and creates and prepares food for it's owner from itself. (So it could grow it's own meat or vegetable on it's inside for example, could deposit it on a plate, heats it and secretes a delicious sauce or dressing)

    The Sky-Needle. A very tall and thin tower constructed of superstable material that reaches high into the atmosphere (or maybe into space), and where the elite of scientists reside and research. It may could work as the base for a space elevator as well.

    A doomsday device. The last and ultimate (and perhaps rather sinister?) weapon of humanity, that will stop them from fighting in wars forever. (Perhaps it is able to accidently destroy the earth to state the point that noone could ever win in a society, that only develops stronger weapons than their imaginary enemies, perhaps only wipes out the humanity and enables another species to evolve into the dominant species of earth in hope, that this species would make anything better, than the humans. Or at least it could simply destroy the more agressive humans, or it alters the human genome and anatomy on an microscopic level to disable almost any agressive tendencies and recreate the mankind as a peaceful and non-territorial species, that is unable to feel anger, hate and that could wish any revenge and results in a total rethinking by mankind and create a new, multicultural and global human society in the now heralded golden age of humanity.)

    A modern design for a Perpetuum Mobile.

    A rather unusual, beautiful and artistic satellite-design in the artistic decade (or even age) of the 36.th century, where almost every piece of technology and industry will be designed by artists and visionaries. Here is, what I thought of: (The view could be from above, looking down onto the satellite that orbits earth. Despite it's intended functions it could be a piece of human creativity, craftsmanship or mechanical elegance, that greets and welcomes visitors to earth at first look, when they are reaching our planet.)

    The smart house of the (not so distant?) future.

    Sanitary arrangements like showers, bath tubs, wash bowls and toilets or complete bathrooms for aliens with non humanoid anatomy. (I really would like to see a rather unusual waste disposal unit or toilet for aliens.)

    The last suggestion about aliens with non humanoid anatomy could work with other concepts like beds, public or private transportation, multimediatechnology or kitchens as well.
