What Have You Always Dreamed of Inventing?

The popular reality TV series Shark Tank features aspiring entrepreneurs as contestants who pitch their innovative ideas or inventions to a panel of investors, hoping to receive funding. Johns Hopkins also has its own version of Shark Tank as a co-sponsor of the DreamIt Health accelerator program for health information technology entrepreneurs. If you could submit an idea to Shark Tank or DreamIt, what would it be? Share your dream inventions in today’s Throwback Thursday.

Bonsai grass - no mowing ever 🙂

Wearable blood analyzer able to replace many invasive tests. Sort of like an SpO2 sensor.

I would like to invent fun and interactive equipment for hopitalized children. The IV poles would be colorful artwork with buttons to push that play music. Some would be appropriate for babies and others would appeal to young kids and teens. Hip hop is a great morale booster! The walkers used by PT for rehab would be decked out with headlights and horns and buttons to push for funny sayings like "get out of my way!" Also, the wagons we have are cute but they could easily be transformed into fire engines, jeeps, or army tanks.

Yasssssss! What an awesome idea. I can see the kids smiles already. You should patent this before Barbara, Mark, Robert, Daymond and the crew hears about it. Good Luck

A harmonic multi-axis sonic/radiation device that focuses multiple weak beams of energy on a single point, which would subject that single point to a high concentration of energy while not harming the surrounding tissue through which the beams pass.

This could be used to treat kidney stones, tumors, etc.

Nano-technology that can enter the body, target, and destroy cancerous cells.

Non-health related:
Flying cars or hovercars. 🙂

A read-only communication medium that requires no electricity, is delivered to your door daily, never breaks, has color pictures and crisp text, can be folded and not break, is light weight, easily passes through TSA checkpoints, is inexpensive, can recycled, can be used as mulch, can wrap delicate items for storage or when you move, can be used to start a fire, can have portions cut out with scissors and remain functional, can be shared with other users, can be stored for 100 years and remain useable. I would call this a newspaper.

Imagine that! 😉

I would like to event a bracelet that would check you health and alert you of a possible stroke ,heart attack, blood pressure, diabetic or any health issue that may be occurring. It would check your pulse and heart rate also any breathing issues. I know some thing like that is in place, but that item is a tech toy and the focus is not on health. People who tend to leave their children and dogs in the care could buy one with an attachment that alerts them that the pet or child is in danger. It could have a panic button to call 911 for someone that is being kidnapped.
