Our Invention Ideas Pages
All of the ideas on this website are just that -- ideas. I
do report on actual inventions as well, but if I call them ideas
you can feel free to use them if you like. Of course it is up
to you to do the necessary patent research, because it's always
possible that others have thought of the same idea and patented
part or all of it, or even trademarked the name we thought we
invented. But if not, make them yours.
Update for January 2013 - I recently saw a video about
inflatable cement buildings. Essentially you inflate them, spray
them with water and wait for them to harden. They are instant
emergency shelters or storage sheds! I'll write more about this
in the future.

Feel free to send along any invention ideas that you have
so I can include them on the site. I recently received this email,
People who eat low carb, those who are allergic to gluten
and many diabetics do not use store-bought bread, we have to
bake our own so it will be grain-free. There are no pans out
there that will let us make bread by the slice (meaning one or
more slices per batch) instead of by the loaf. It could be a
plain old metal pan or an electric one like the mini donut makers.
The second thing we need involves potatoes, which the people
classified above cannot eat. But if the starch in the potatoes
is retrograded to resistant starch, we can eat it without having
it raise our blood sugar much. Here is an article that talks
about retrograding potatoes, http://www.tastingmenu.com/2008/01/02/todays-secret-ingredient-heat/
beginning with the 6th paragraph. The peeled, sliced potatoes
must be cooked at a temperature of 149 for 30 minutes. Many of
us have tried doing this with existing kitchen appliances and
equipment, but there is no way for us to regulate the temperature
anywhere near that accurately.
We would love to have a small electric appliance where we could
add water and potato slices, the cooker would heat the contents
to 149 degrees, keep it there for 30 minutes, then signal us
to take the spuds out of the cooker, where we would drain and
plunge the spuds into ice water.
Once word got out on the low carb, diabetic and gluten-free forums
that these products exist, there isn't a doubt in my mind that
thousands would be sold.
Thanks to Joyce for those invention ideas. We'll be watching
to see if someone takes her suggestions and runs with them.
